Success Stories - How rich did 1.3 make you?

I just sold my last augment/augmentor. And prices on augment kits have dropped substantially. So now that the rush is more or less over, how much profit did you make crafters? I'm up 52m.

Share comments, success stories, etc.

I knew Dulfy had overestimated mk-6 sales values. On my server I sold the bulk of mine for 155k each. Very few people actually got 200k for kits, and only in the first hour. Now they're about 70k.
Augments are still pretty high though. 140-180k for the more useful ones. And augmentors are at a solid 30k each.

about 8 million in 2 days, With 2 hours work each day, I like patches

Most of the profit with augments (have been saving mats for some time) rather than augement slot kits

52M is impressive, by your own estimates that's either 346 sold augments or augment kits in total at an average of 150k each and not including expenses. You must have crafted and scavaged your backside off.

I'd guess about 11 to 12M in 2 days, depending on how you price the materials I used. I stopped selling kits when the prize fell below 100K to prepare to gear up friends and sold mostly augments, then cut that back and started to check what else the patch offers, didn't level the GTN for the whole patch day :P).

Augment kits cost now 70K or so on my server as well.

I made well over 10 million credits during the first two days (most of it on Tuesday). I wasn't selling augment kits though, I was selling augments. I was listing 10 at a time on the GTN at 150k each and I was getting sale mails before I finished listing all 10.

On The Harbinger, I made roughly 10m over the last 2 days on Upari/Primeval mostly and some Subelectronic and Augmentors. I'm a pure mats dealer.

You guys are very fortunate that pre 1.3 critables were Re-able lol. It could have gone the other way.

LOL, a more modest 2.5M for me.

I did not try to cash in, just go with the flow and still have 150 augmentors (amoung other things) sitting in my cargo hold.

Made around 5 mil here. Sold a few mk-6's for 400k, but most around 140k. Stopped selling them when the price dropped under 80k. It is now around 70k on my server as well. Sold a lot of purple 21 augments for 90-120k and 22's for 120-150k.

Augmentors are still around 35k. Most good augments are selling for around 150k, though some people are undercutting by 40k for no reason... durasteel and zal alloy are around 2-2.5k still, bleh.

On the negative side, I haven't sold a single piece of armor since 1.3 went live even though I'm listing over 20 armor pieces (both heavy and medium). So it looks like my future as an armormech is just going to be making augment kits and augments, not real armor...

I got stuck at work couldnt get into the early rush made 3 mil still through a bunch of different types of sales.

52 mil = 346 augments thats 3460 bracers i leaning towards a fat lie. specially when its what 3 minutes a peice plus r.e and then 22.5 per to craft. not saying you didnt make $$ but not that much lol.

if someone wants to do the math and proove him wrong go ahead lol.

im waiting for the patch where armstech gets op and i sell all 2000 ultrachrome and 4000 of the blue g.6 in investagation. and there still pouring in.

I made 12 mil and i wasn't even prepared. Had no belts made pre patch

Just 10 stacks of upari/primevals and a **** load of augments crafted.

50 was definitely possible
