Maybe i just hit a bad RNG, but starting 2 days ago, the returns from TH became much, much smaller than before; Whereas I was constantly getting blue items and even oranges from bountiful/rich missions, now i only get useless greens and a relic now and then...I've yet to see a blue and i'm already 200 TH on an alt

My beef was that trying to get Krayt Dragon Pearls (level 3 purple gemstone) was taking me an insane amount of time. In the same time that I got the six or whatever pearls I needed for some advanced crafting, I also picked up like 150 Tatooine Flamegem. The drop seemed way low.

Because of it, I've determined that I'm not going to bother with trying to RE to the purple level items because it's just not worth the credit dump, especially considering that by the time I can craft I'm nearing the next level of craftables anyway.

Krayt Dragon pearls and various other mats from treasure hunting have greater availability from the dropped mission. You can most of those missions on the GTN i was having issues finding some of those mats in till i started getting those missions and now the only gem i have a hard time getting is the Level 6 gem that starts with a c can remember the name.

my only beef is that people are selling 340 missions over 10k instead of the 5 they're suppose to be for what little we get we can't make a profit on them

That's in direct relation to the slicing nerf. Not as many people actually doing slicing misisons so the supply of the missions goes down,

i sell mine between 5k and 15k depending on the type, (treasure hunting is a 15k one)
Treasure Hunting, Underworld Trading = 15k each and sell within 30mins
Archeology and Scavenging = 10k each and sell within the 1 day list
Investigation and Diplomacy = 4670 (default sale price) and 'may' sell sometimes.

Its about supply and demand...
If there is a high demand for them even at 15k (and ive seen people in channels offering 20k or so for them) then someone is making a profit on them in some manner

I can confirm the nerf.

2 days prior. I was getting relics every mission if I did the right one. Usually greens, some times blues and on the odd occasion a purple or orange.

Now? I'm lucky if I get any thing more than a credit box that pays less than what the mission costs to do.
