Armormech or Cybertech for my BH PT...

At first I was gonna do Armormech, but now I'm debating whether or not I should do Cybertech instead. I found that making mod's to be placed into my armor or pistols could be rather useful..or would building armor as a whole be better? Do you get to make any cool looking armor for BH as Armormech or are you better off looting your armor or getting it through quests? My main reason for going with Armormech is because I'm guessing that we can make pretty cool armor sets for the BH when you get good at the craft, but if the armor you make isn't that good, I think I might as well go with Cybertech. Also, Cybertech seems like it can be more versatile then Armormech as well as more profitable since I'm guessing mods will be very useful and at high demand especially during end game. With Cybertech, I will be able to make mods for both my pistols and armor, whereas Armormech I'm stuck to only making armor for defense, not improving my offensive with my pistol. Need your guy's inputs and opinions! I appreciate it.

BTW, Underworld Trading goes well with both these crafting skills right?

I find Armortech to be amazing its an easy way to keep all your gear up to par or above it. Some people dont take the time to farm PvP for their sets or get lucky epic drops.
BRING BACK OUR PLEASE!!!

Granted I haven't got that far in-game yet, but just go with whatever you like. At the end of the day, each one can benefit you and you'll be without the others, resorting you to buy/loot those items.

I've gone for Armstech myself.

I did Armor all through beta and it was really really useful most of the time. But for launch I decided on a whim to go Biotech just to do something different.

So far im lvl 33 w/ cybertech at 300. Im making epic armor enhancements andmods for each level and im still in gear I got from jutta *blaster-kept up to date through commendation barrels * a head from balmorra, legs from balmorra and chest+gloves from tat and so far my gear has almost always been netter then even epics I see. I love cybertech but arms+armormech have their place. Held that I can make high quality ear pieces too. Just figured id put that out there

Agreed with the above poster. Cybertech is great due to the fact that you can mod yourself with the same armour all day. Not to mention the ear slot items are soo good.

Reading how neat Cybertech is I really regret having picked Armormech It seems there are no real benefits in either Armstech or Armormech, or am I wrong?

Im doing armortech on my PT but it seems like the best answer is to get both going at once....armortech on my main and cybertech on an alt. Both are going to be critical to keeping my characters well equipped as well as making some credits on the marketplace...

But if you can just keep modding early-gained armor you find visually appealing, and thereby actually make it superior to purples, blues, and greens, then I just do not see the benefit of using materials and time crafting armor or weapons. My armormech is currently lvl 130 and after reading this thread I am very much considering deleting my armormech crew-skill and starting all over with cybertech. I need some advice please... I already did the same with Underworld trading, taking slicing instead.

keep in mind that you can only mod orange items.

I think the cybertech stuff could be a serious $$ maker mid-end game if you play with the AH.

As of now both have been a toss up for me. I've gotten drops that make both less useful to me.
