Hello,

What is the most valuable/expensive crafting material?

I assume it's the higher tiers, grade 8-10 however I've noticed the lower to mid grade sell like crazy.

I'd appreciate any insight!

Thank you,
Maybe it's the first time to try or to return to the game? A major update of new content will be added very soon! I genuinely do recommend at least checking it out, the community is very supportive and welcoming. Please feel free to ask questions and enjoy yourself.

The most expensive per unit is undoubtedly one of the high-level ones, Charged Matter Transubstantiators or Encrypted Memory Cores, because they are comparatively hard to get hold of(1), and an essential element in crafting Augments beyond 228-purple.

Other than that, the low-to-mid grade stuff is more expensive because they are used for crafting War Supplies items for Conquest, and they are gathered less than the high-grade stuff because people tend to run mostly high-level characters and mostly on "end-game" planets where low-to-mid can't be gathered. High demand, low production, conclusion: high price.

(1) One of them drops from top-tier Ops, while the other drops from ranked PvP, with a secondary source for both in that they also drop on a rare chance from Command Crates.

EMTs don't sell for too much. id say the order of most expensive for top tier would be this;
1. Charged Matters
2. Isotopes
3. Encrypted Memory Core
4. Void Matters
28/31 Nim/MM 5.0

CMT and EMC are reward for 1st and 2nd tier of conquest, if your guild manages to meet the guild goal and you achieve your personal goal.

Fibrous Nylite Solution, for sure. Prices on the GTN are insane!

Wait. Isn't that a white material you can buy from the <Crew Skill Trade Vendor> for the fluff in the pocket where you keep your change? Do people actually *pay* those prices?
