Do the level 50 dailies get you offhand stuff? Just curious.

We are comparing crew skill usefulness. Artifice creates Enhancements. Armormech and Synthweavers make nothing of commodity value.

It's completely relevant since the enhancements are worthless.

There are up to 7 reasons. 7 other characters you can fit on your account that won't need artifice. What, am I the only guy playing 8 characters at once?
Amurrka, Malfunction, Skeeve, Derp, Deeva, Orinj @Dreshdae Cantina

The enhancements arent worthless, they're as good as the 1 enhancement you get from 1 daily. The ones we craft also have a wider variety of stats which is nice.

Also, Rakatta relics. as a tank you should be quite happy with those. One relic with power and endurance as passive stats and a defensive secondary stat on use, and one full endurance passive with an irrelevant DPS stat on use which you can choose to ignore (they share CDs anyways as far as i know).

And then there's a moddable lightsaber schematic which, assuming the same rules as armstech weapons apply, can crit and give you an augment slot in your lightsaber.

They aren't as good as the daily ones, they are much worse.

Any gear you get at 50 has way better enhancements in it already anyway.

I already have the rakata relics and they don't require artifice to use.

Orange items are crap, I have a battlemaster ligthsaber that is 10x better than a level 47 blue lightsaber with an augment slot.

Anything else?

They will definitely balance the other professions with Biochem sooner or later. If your already 400 Artifice or similar, you might as well wait for now, since you gotta be well pissed if they announce major changes to professions in say, a month's time. Just wait until their profession revamp is announced/implemented, then decide what suits you best and whether Artifice is still useless or not.

Bad choice I think. Maybe one of the worst decisions you will make in your SWTOR history
