Although useless to most, its not entirely useless. Sith assassin is a tanking spec that uses light armor if I'm not mistaken.

For leveling up and using self crafted gear just RE to blue.

RE'ing to purple is really for crafters that want to exploit a specific market segment.

I dont see them as being that rare, I find its harder to get the schematic if you just RE as they are crafted. Usually takes me about 5-10 tries to get purple and sometimes less, I have 15 purple lvl 50 schematics now. 3 of them I got on the very first try. The trick I do is craft 5-10 of one item and usually 5 of another then 2-3 of another. RE them all at once, and I get 2 schematics usually. Then do it all over again with new items to get more. Sometimes its hard to get one but always get another.

Where can I buy some rear gear...only joking ... I could not help myself.

Anyway...

I am a armstech, currently once a day I play my daily PvP and buy up purple resorces from the market. Last night a got a good deal and got 8 units of grade 6 purple metal for under 4k. I still can't use it for a while, but I buy what ever is out there within reason.

My mastercraft weapons don't sell anymore. I think this is because I can go to a commandation vendor and by a range weapon with 4 mod slots. The mastercraft weapons have only one slot for a single mod.

So now I am concentrating on crafting barrels only. Maybe they will sell. But I bought a LVL 11 blaster upgraded the barrel, and it does better damage than the mastercraft lvl 29 weapon that I spend 10k perfecting.

Crafting needs some tweaking.
