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.
Not true. You can mod epic items also, but you only get 2 moddable slots instead of 3.

I gotta say cybertech. I've taken the social dress you're able to buy, and I constantly mod it, and it's persistently above gear I find, stat-wise.

Isn't that Light Armor though?

I was Armormech for beta but I'm Cybertech for live. Armortech was more immediately gratifying (building decent upgrades for my armor right off the bat), but Cybertech seems to be more geared for endgame with rare ship upgrades, item modifications for all that RP gear you want to play in, and also a custom-built speeder bike that I'm still farming some underworld metals for.

So my vote would be cybertech, also it seems like most bounty hunters went armsmech and armormech.

Scavenging gets you the base metals/compounds you need. Underworld Trading gets you the rare/epic mats you need for rare/epic items.

You dont tend to see a great deal of slotted gear until 30+. Personally, I've found armormech invaluable while levelling because it lets me save my commendations for weapons/shields/implants - and the server I play on has an extremely low population on the imperial side so there's literally no gear to buy from the GTN.

Cybertech is definitely more useful at endgame, where a lot of the gear allows for mods/upgrades, but I still dont think it fits a bounty hunter all that well. Aside from earpieces and upgrades, cybertech focuses on making melee weapons and droid parts - neither of which is much use to a bounty hunter, as we have no droid companions and our melee companions are probably the least used out of the lot.

I'll be taking cybertech on my imperial agent, though - can always make myself mods at endgame and send them to my bounty hunter.

I've been leveling Cybertech but thought about switching to armormech and after reading this thread I get the vibe Cybertech is the way to go. Plus im making grenades now which is sweet lol.

I have a question about Underworld Trading. I've been getting a lot of schematics for Sithweaving, do we get Cybertech schematics from UT?

I've gotten tons of orange gear in my 20s...don't they even sell orange gear at the commendations vendors?
