Cyber + Slicing + Scavage or U.W. Trading?

Yeah, 15 minutes until the servers come up so I thought I might ask. Cybertech is around 250 and Scavage is around 260. I dropped Underworld Trading initially to pick up slicing and it was a great option, however all of the blue/purple mods require UT materials along with scavaging and the UT materials are considerably more expensive on my server (2k per bar of level 3 UW Trading Materials).

So do you guys think it's more profitable to buy the cheaper but heavy quantity scavaging materials, or stick with scavaging and just fork out cash for blue/purple bars.

I've been doing cybertech + scavenging + slicing, but the lack of the rare elements from UWT is bumming me out (can level it just fine, but cant make blue/other mods).

Never thought of dropping scavenging though, pretty neat idea actually...

I forsee a slicing nerf in the near future though. The money-making capabilities of it is off the charts (I'm currently helping guildies fund their speeder-skill left and right, and I only just got it myself).

Have a friend do UW trading. UW is such a money sink. Where as Slicing makes HUGE money.


Alts are fun too btw.

Aye, that's another thing on my "may be a good idea"-list. Make an alt just for UWT.

Mako is great at slicing.

Your 2nd companion is alright at Underworld.

I started Cyber/Salv/UT, but been considering dumping Salv for Slicing. Mats from Salvage are readily available on the Exchange for what I consider are reasonable prices, and I figure boosting the bankroll via Slicing gives me far more flexibilty for the time being. There's no reason why I cannot pick up Salvaging late game when money matters less, and level it then.
Indeed, I am most eager to engage in some unadulterated violence.
At your command, of course, master.

I just made the switch, I dropped Salvage for Slicing and so far so good. I do have one question about slicing, when you are making your runs you are doing the ones that allow you to open the cases? When do you start to make the 1000-5000 credits that was posted previous? Right now my skill is only 35 and I make on average between 90-130. Thanks

Maybe I'm wrong, but I seems like slicing already was nerfed since beta. I'm not seeing near as many nodes as I did before.
