I think you could improve the guide readability by reformatting. Try using a different text color for headings. When summarizing the best crew skills for each side include crit bonuses.



Quote:
e. Republic Side Summary

Best at Crew Skills:

Artifice: Jedi Knight (+10 eff) (only option)
Synthweaving: Jedi Knight (+5 crit)
Armstech: Smuggler (+5 crit)
Armormech: Trooper (+5 crit)
Cybertech: Jedi Consular (+10 eff) and Smuggler (+10 eff)
Biochem: Jedi Knight (+5 crit)
Archeology: Jedi Consular (+15 eff)
Scavenging: Trooper (+5 crit)
Bioanalysis: Jedi Knight (+10 eff), Trooper (+10 eff), & Smuggler (+2 crit)
Slicing: Jedi Knight (+2 crit), Jedi Consular (+10 eff), & Trooper (+10 eff)
Treasure Hunting: Trooper (+2 crit)
Underworld Trading: Jedi Knight (+5 eff), Jedi Consular (+1 crit), Trooper (+1 crit), & Smuggler (+5 eff)
Investigation: Trooper (+10 eff)
Diplomacy: Smuggler (+15 eff)
For example include the +2 crit bonuses on Trooper and Jedi Consular companions. I value crit bonuses usually higher than eff as time it not an issue. Especially with companions I leave behind. But critical success on mission like diplomacy or underworld trading payoff often very well.
eff vs. crit = quantity vs. quality.

This way the side summary becomes more useful when you plan ahead the crew skills distribution on multiple chars on one side. Especially since except for Nar shaddar GTN it's impossible to trade items with the opposing side.

These are some pretty good ideas. I don't know that I'll do it this morning, but I think I will do this soon. I will list the best crit and best efficiency options for players to choose from.

PS: Awesome, this got stickied after all! Thanks everyone. I'm glad that this guide has been so helpful to everyone!
