Slicing, Cybertech and (?)

Hey guys,

Just made an alt and I picked up Slicing just to see what all the hype was about. However I wanted to do Cybertech as well since my main has Artifice and with it I will be able to craft all the different weapon mods. Now is scavenging vital to Cybertech or does Underworld Trading offer more.

without scavenging you wont be able to make anything, UT is only essential for the blue and purple items which you wont need to make til you max out. So if you have slicing you should have enough creds to buy the mats for blues or drop it later on and pick up UT

Scavenging proves green quality materials that are used for every Cybertech craft. Underworld Trading provides higher quality materials (blue and purple) that are used only for higher quality (blue and purple) crafts. If you want to keep slicing it's fairly easy to either simply get the UT materials either off the GTN or from an alt with UT when you wish to make something of higher quality.

If on your server awesome GTN - it doesn't matter, if not- scavenging.

We have a fairly decent GTN but I think I'll stick to Scavenging based on advice and my initial thoughts. I would drop slicing except that it gives out missions, which is good.
