So I've literally just started playing again, last time I logged in was pre 1.2 so I've missed quite a bit

Back in the beginning slicing was seriously lucrative so I grabbed it on 2 chars, then after the nerfs I considered dropping them but ended up not playing.

So I now have 400 slicing on 2 chars and am not sure what its actually useful for, any advice on this front?

Apparently their programmers don't know how to count.

My friend has slicing and she gets me the tech stuff I need to make the augments and from my understanding that stuff is going to be needed when 1.3. goes life for the augment kits.
A southern girl is a girl who knows full well that she can open a door for herself but prefers for the gentleman to do it because it demonstrates a sense of respect. Guild Roleplays: http://republicexplorerscorp.enjin.com/activity

Aye, that is true. Only problem is, the success rate on those purple tech seems very, very low.
To give you a sense, I am Slicing 400 and I am using 2 10k Affection companions and 1 10k Affection companion with +2 Slicing Critical and I am running all 3 Slicing Parts missions back-to-back all day (and night, heh) and I am getting about 4-6 parts in 2 days worth.
See ya on the chronostream, time jockey!
Shoot straight. Conserve ammo. And never, EVER cut a deal with a dragon.

keep it, keep running missions, make credits and sell the missions, hoard them for 1.3 and then buy everything you need.

In case one of your characters (or both) is a non-foce class pick either armormech or armstech +scavenging and level it up so you can make augments.
