[Slicing] Returning Player with 400 Slicing

So I know all about the big slicing nerf way back in the old old republic times. I was fine with that because I actually sliced in the wild with my BH. However, I am coming back to the dark side but I am rolling with a new class this time around. I was planning on setting my BH up as my money maker, running his illicit empire from the comfort of his ship.

I know lockbox missions are not the way to go these days, but does slicing return anything that is worth keeping the skill maxed for selling on GTN?

it was not a nerf. they changed it in Beta. changing stuff in beta is not a nerf. Lockboxes are actually the best way to go. you can get crafting missions which a few of them sell for 30-60k each. when the grade 5-6 missions critical they give back 5-8k in a credit box. if you run 4 lvl 50 characters, all with 400 slicing like i do, you gain a few hundred thousand credits a day without leaving the fleet.

Slicing. still the best.

The purple augment parts at grade 6 still sell well. It's hit and miss as with any gathering skill if you can crit enough to make up for the ones that don't.

Lockboxes are still a very good approach for low effort money making, when missions do come back they are sellable other than the investigation ones. If you're lucky to get a slicing one then you'll be guaranteed those purple mats above.

You can also use the same basis to support your new character, run lockboxes at the lower levels to get a mission they could run.

Not to be overly pedantic, but the slicing rewards were "adjusted" in 1.0.1, after launch.

Thanks gang! Its good to hear that slicing is still somewhat viable. While I think my BH is now retired, he can still run his money laundering front out of his ship! Good! I have never been all that great at playing the GTN game and crafting in my early life seems counter productive.

The Advanced Neural Augmentator provides a steady amount of credits
I run the 3 tech missions during the entire, and most of the time I crit once (3 pieces) per round
they sell for 10k on The Shadowlands
