This might sound like a stupid question, but it is something that really concerns me. I just deleted my Cybertech profession to pick up Biochem for tanking. I am at roughly 150 in my crafting and gathering skills and a guild mate told me that they are either removing or nerfing the Rakata Medpac and Stim that you can make for end game. Is this true? I have not heard anything about this before. If you know anything can you please post details and links to quotes.

Your guildmate doesn't have a clue. The Biochem stims have been repeatedly nerfed in the past (the most recent one making it so that stims can only be used once per fight) but there have been no announcements about further plans to nerf biochem.

it was nerfed in 1.1 so I guess you're guildie is a few months behind the times. dont worry, biochem is still the best crafting skill for endgame IMO.

I have been searching for info on what he was talking about, but can find nothing recent. I found info on the Rakata pieces being nerfed in power back in February to match Energized stims. I am aware of the Single use medpac, but the thought of them removing these is disturbing seeing as they are the single reason I am leveling this. It costs a fortune to get prototype stims all the time.

I hate to double post, but I did not want to post this in via an edit. I believe this is what my guildie was referring to:
http://www.swtor.com/de/community/sh...d.php?t=427869

In which case from what I can gather from other sources, they do not plan to remove the re-usable items but never update them in new content... Seeing as they already received a full blown nerf in 1.1 it seems a little cruel to refuse to update them. I understand the argument and concern BW has, just seems like such a waste.

I believe your guildmate is referring to the quote that said they are "phasing out" the various Biochem reusables.

This does not mean they will be nerfed/removed, this simply means that as new content comes out, there won't be further upgrades to those reusables (and no new ones will replace them), so in time their value will (passively) decrease.

still a long way for the "new content" to roll in and "phase out" the current one.
biochem would still be endgame crafting king for a couple of months at the least.

Yeah, just seems like such a waste though. If I had known that I would not have dropped my cybertech, having cleared the new ops and nightmare modes I lost a lot of schematics.
