from Reverse Engineering.... i am just getting to the end-game, and i see all these rattaka reusable stuff covering pretty much all your needs... is there a point in spending all the time needed to get purples from RE to get non-reusable stims/pots? Is there anything else worth my effort?

med units used to be reusable-worthy, but not since they got nerfed
OMG! Imperial ships can get a .00008% power increase! Nerf the empire!

So I assume anything worth your effort needs to benefit your one end-game toon? If so, then probably not.

If, however, you want it to benefit other people or your other toons there's a lot you could be bothered with. But since I don't think that's the answer you're looking for I won't elaborate.

yeah pretty much - there's cost/benefit here as well to be considered.... that said, i do plan ot have alts... supplying them with some good thru death - persistent pots may be in the picture...but...overall i was really hoping for a different anwser than: "all biochem stuff is useless crap, other than 2-3 reusable items, so you do your share of hard moeds and be done with the whole profession"

I gave you a different answer. All biochem stuff ISN'T useless crap. If you want to see it from a very narrow point of view that's how you're going to see it.

I have found it worth the effort cause everyone is taking bio-chem for the med packs but don't want to put the effort into RE-ing them its easy to make some creds from the re-usable items

Yea because sending my ALT an constant supply of Artifact quality implants with the exact stats he needs for every level bracket available is useless!

Seriously if you can send back the Purple Implants at the correct levels and always have the next `level braket`available for your alt, you will simply not find better gear without trying hard.

Implants are good - 2 slots taken care of, but again limited use - how many alts are you going to have? 3 max? and go thru all the trouble of trying to crit appropriate implant for each bracket, when you can just get something 10% weaker from AH for 1/100 of effort involved in making it yourself. If you're really that involved, fine...but that's not really a benefit per se, just an alternative avenue... if you like to inflict a lot of pain on yourself for a little reward.
