So I constantly get told artifice is worthless
I can make 2 of the magenta crystals which do make some decent credits but also so can practically every other artificer On my server it seems this is the only thing of value we can make but to be honest I don't really do it for the credits, so i would like to see some more stuff added like modable custom shields and focuses,custom war hero light , Pvp grade hilts, bop or crafting locked crystals that are say +49 or even 50 of a stat something that gives artifice a reason at lvl 50

Also can we get something other than custom light saber schem from treasure hunting Tha gtn is full of them they are worthless

Also biometric alloy please make these drop from pvp vendor crafting boxes

Also requiring 3 biometric alloys to make the lvl 50 orange sabers is to much
Mats to make these is around 400k no ones going to pay this price

Why do sabres cost 400k? Bio alloy can be dropped in HM Flashpoints or from fleet comms boxes so they are free? Earn the mats that way and you can make a much bigger margin?

I've also picked up a level 24 enhancement, potential sales there (again by dropping alien cubes rather than buying them).

That's so true, our relics are BOP and almost worthless, who cares about sabers when you can augment your own now and Artifice can't even craft Augment kits! The crystals we can do can be bought at the pvp vendor, every drop is better than what we can craft. BW once said we will be able to craft even better gear than drops from flashpoints etc in 1.2. Fact is we can't, it's just a gimmick to outfit alts.

While synthweavers, armstechs and armormechs make a fortune of credits with augs already they can make even more with 1.3.

Artifice definately needs a boost and yea remove the alloys from saber mats and add more hilts etc.!

Puhlease! ^^

/agree

I was stoked when I read that new color crystals were coming in 1.2, yet haven't seen a single one, other than the 4 from the fleet PVP vendor. Hilts and Enhancements aside, I chose Artifice for my Sent for the color crystals, period. Where is my Purple Color Crystal schematic?? That's all I want, really!! I swear!

Artifice worthless!?!? I would say artifice is the second most useful behind cybertech. Think about how many peices of gear have enhancement slots. Weapon, head, chest, gloves, boots, and legs. That is six or seven if your a marauder/bounty hunter. I have three level 26 enhancement recipes I have gotten from reverse engineering blackhole gear. With those recipes i can have a toon as soon as he hits level 50 in nearly half black hole/campaign grade gear. Thats not including color crystals, augmented weapons, and you can also reverse engineer campaign relics and get augments in those. Combine that with my cybertech who has level 26 armoring and mod recipes all of my toons can be nearly fully geared minus implants, earpeice, maybe relic, offhand, belt and bracers. Of which you can buy on the gtn with the millions you will make from selling your level 26 enhancements, relics, augmented sabers, and color crystals.
Artifice is far far from being worthless.

I just do my black hole dailies save up the coms and buy a peice of gear with that then rip out the mods/enhancements and reverse engineer. Its still requires some work but not pve/raids everyday.
I know what you mean about pvp though I farmed for a whole to get the war hero gear and went to reverse engineer the lvl 26 pvp enhancement only to find out that "no research available".

yup, pvp is very behind in that case and if you can craft similar items the vendors have them, i do my dailies and weeklys too if I can, but I gotta keep those items if I ever get them

and other crew skill seem to get all the new stuff with every patch, that's why artifice really needs a boost

what I've found to be decent way to make $$$ is build a custom light saber and trick it out with proto hilt, crystal and enhansements... get a mod from comm vendor that sells from same level as hilt crystal and enhanse... needless to say you can make lvl 23, 31, 39 type lightsabers... make around 6-12k not a whole lot but when you have a butt ton of extra arch mats and a alot of gemstones from trying to crit gotta do something with all those extra mats that are just collecting dust in the cargo hold.... just food for thought
