Slicing is a little different than the other gathering skills as you can only get lockboxes in open-world. You cannot get augment pieces in the open-world.

Which is why I advocate the change. Since lvl 50 purples cost only 2EA of "rare" purple items(like mission skill materials), why shouldn't augments, no?
IDK, poster ConnorSalak said I should compare it to getting these materials to make mods/enh, I would suspect it is not as difficult as the Advanced Nueral.

Can any UT folks out there chime in on this? Speaking from the Diplomacy side my Grade 6 Medical Supplies drops about as frequently, but again, it only cost 2EA for my Implants.



Anyway, I think they might have ninja buffed it...

The slicing purple parts a re a much sought after item, and I dont agree with changing the requirement to 2 or increasing drops on lockboxes. The only thing I would go for is a slight reduction in the time to complete the missions.

I have a 400 Slicer and 400 Armormech on 2 different toons. So if I need those neurals I'll just buy a 340 Mission unlock from the GTN, for around ~70k, complete it, then mail the parts back to my armormech. Also, I've always gotten 4 on the purples unless I crit, then I'll usually get 5, and some legacy drops.

They are supposed to be rare. Those purples are a big part of the economy and one of the ONLY items that are ALWAYS sought after. I think its good for the server for something to be in want.

One more thing, the profit margin is not enough to really sell the purple augments and make a lot of money. Although the market has died down a bit, a big portion of my income comes from selling level 21 and 22 blue augments.

What server are you on as on?
As on my server that would be a dead market. Augments at level 20 to 30 do not sell for much or very fast as a glut exists for them.

Maybe I should have stated that one companion had 10k Affection and +10 Slicing and the other 0 Affection and +5 slicing yet the +10 failed more often. This is a very valid question as this is over 2 months in time.

Please tell me which of your companions has +10 Slicing Crit and which one has +5 Slicing Crit.

Oh wait, you can't because no companions have those numbers.

Maybe he meant +10 v +2? I have these numbers.

Thraron Cedrax(Consular) =+10 Slicing (but not helpful since I am Bio on this toon)
T7-01(Knight)= +2 Slicing(Current Toon)

One is critical and one is efficiency though, right? I know T7 is critical, I think Tharon's is efficiency. That could matter...

I guess that didnt come out right. The 22 augments are the level 49 ones. I'm on the Fatman server and the demand has lowered down a little bit but I'll still sell anywhere from 5-15 everyday at 15-25 a pop. The prices always fluctuate so I have to check it every time I put something up on the GTN

Yea I'm pretty sure MetalMac meant efficiency. All that does is lower the amount it takes to complete missions. On my Sorc one companion has a +2 crit to slicing and hes maxxed out affection. I dont really run slicings mission at all except for the 340 Mission unlocks bought from the GTN, I'm prly gonna drop it for a better money maker.

As it is, slicing is terrible for making any real money. The other gathering skill are far more profitable.
