I'm that Biochem. I'm stockpiling greens as we speak. =) All you need is one friend who can make the actual kits.

In the end, I'm not sure if it's wise. I think the cost, material wise, to do it through biochem is more expensive than through other crew skills (i.e., bracers), but I'm not sure.

Greetz from Germany, can confirm that RE Implants will give Mats! Tried it yesterday on the PTR...
RE'ed lvl 49 Green Implant --> Build time ca. 5 mins! Gave me MK6-Augment Mats

Only problem is it's like 8 (expensive) mats compared to an Armomech's cheap belt that requires 4 (cheap Zal Alloy and Durasteel). Hugely cheaper for them. =(

If i craft green bracers/belts in 1.2 before the game gets patched, if i RE these after 1.3 do i get the augment component parts?

Or can i only get these from stuff i craft post-1.3?

According to Dulfy's blog, you can already craft your green items and RE them after 1.3 goes live.

(If you do not know Dulfy's blog (callsign iwipe on these forums) I recommend you check out her blog, always very informative tips)

this is correct. Also stockpile some subelectronic data modules, you will need them to craft augment kits. I bought 99 of them while they are cheap and I suppose they will be quite expensive soon as every augment kit maker will need them.

Yep, but I'm not sure it's wise to stockpile the greens. Mats stack, greens don't. And it only takes like 3 minutes to make a green belt, so unless you think a couple hours difference in time is gonna matter that much, better to stock lots and lots of mats. ('course, at this point probably not enough time to stockpile THAT much mats...)

You can fit 100x8 for a total of 800 green items in your mailbox. You will make obscene amounts of money selling kits as early as possible, so yes it's worth it so you're not backlogged making greens.

Don't worry, they won't be expensive. There's such a huge glut of them that many people have 1000s of them. 1000 data modules will make 500 augmentation kits.
