Crafting waste of time?

IIRC, the weekly loot boxes from warzones will randomly have schematics (which bind to legacy) that are equivalent to the receiving character's current tier.

You also get them from CXP crates and the higher you’re tier, the higher the schematics.

Crafting is good even if you don't want to sell what you make - you can craft some interesting armor for your characters and companions, make crystals and dyes, augments and kits. You can also make War Supplies and Dark Projects and turn them in for decos.

I make what I need for my characters: full sets of mods for their weapons up through level 65; 236/240 augments, dyes, and so on. I'd say it's probably saved a lot of credits.

If you wanna earn a moderate amount of credits, craft 246 mods.
Augmentation kits are cheap, starting from 20-30k today, tomorrow can be 70k and the day after the price can go to 20k again.

With mods, even if the price goes down by 200k, you're still gonna earn more than 1.5m per one 246 mod.

Ofc you have to either buy the mats or farm them, schematics come from crates, so there will be several different mods to craft.

Use GTN to check the prices of each mod, just to see which one has the highest selling price atm = higher profit for you.

You know, i have ttrouble considering crafting a waste of time on this game cause it's probably the less intrusive crafting system i have played.
You just got a menu with prompts and send your companions to do the job while you continue doing whatever you were doing. It is hardly a waste of time cause it costs so little time.
Compared to other mmo's this is deluxe. Unless you know, it's FF and you have to go balls deep on the mini-game, gear and the whole progression thing. It's like the opposite of SWTOR. There's things to like on both.

Only subscribers should craft (it's a dead end as Preferred / F2P, even with new currency caps)... yes I know we're all subs here.

the other thing is, if you expect decent returns, you need a sizable investment... lvl 50 comps (up to 8 of them), tier 4 command crate schematics, nathema aug schematics, reputation dyes, buying rare mats, and a lot of time spent....

that said you can make a steady income, once you get up to speed, and the returns for time spent are a bit better than running all a planets heroics (which still nets ~1/2mil / planet). highest priority for companion use is Mission skill mats (Rich/Bountiful blue/purples) > Crafting non-gear items (mods, augs, components) > consumables > Gather skill missions (green/white mats) > crafting gear items (left side gear, armor, weapons).
If it moves, shoot it.
if it stops moving, shoot it again.
