/signed, and like this fellow "says," vendoring it for one stinking credit is just another slap in the face.

I just sell it at a shop whenever it's not something I can use. Figure it's better than flooding the market with overpriced oranges. Should I decide to sell one that doesn't have any of its kind on the GTN, then I'd make it 1k or so. Still roughly a 10x profit from vendoring it.

We probably should all flood the market with the useless oranges. This should cause prices to sharply decline, thus making crafters feel even more shafted. If more disgruntled crafters take to the forums and let BW know that we are not satisfied with the current state of crafting, BW might actually address a few of our concerns.

Not being able to re back non crit organges is meant to keep the mats and missions market going aka time/credit sink. This really helps keep inflation down and people doing missions and daily's to keep up.

Would you rather have them further lessen the crit rates? See there has to be a price to pay for the crit and using up mats is the price.

On my server The Jekk Jekk Tarr (as of a week after 1.2) the augmented stuff is around 100-500k depending on how the crit item looks . While there are plenty of orange non-augments on, it's not gonna go out of control since everyone can only put up 50 and it only stays up there for 2 days.

There's a limitation that prevents reverse engineering these items currently. We are working on addressing the issue.

I love when people think they know what BW is thinking and post statements like this one as fact.

The worst of them all is War Hero and Battlemaster non augmented crafted gear.. seriously who will ever want that? The only reason anyone would make that is to get the augment slot since it has valor requirements.

Thank you
I can confirm, just put in a low level armoring mod into the orange gear, and you can RE it. Search my post history, I made this same question and other players told me the work-around.

The Mats returned are appropriate for the level of the orange. For example, I RE'd some War Hero gear, and got back the Grade 6 mats I used to make it in the first place. (This was also confirmed by Stephen Reid, check the dev tracker)

Defenitly does not work with sabers.
Tried the sudgested hilt into it, but not working.
Did hear it's the same with other orange weapons, and this solution only works wit 1.2 orange armors.
