From what I see cybertech is high on the list , make armoring/mods. Although everybody and their grandma's dog is using cybertech it seems.

Not exactly true, not everyone wants to craft, but are technically forced into it since majority of the crafters either don't craft or they do, but severely overcharge when selling the crafted items.

While i agree that cybertech is the most common crafting skill to pick since 90% of everyone use modded gear, since it allows them to look how they like all the way through the leveling process, i wish i enjoyed crafting, especially in this game since there are so little means of keeping your character and companions' geared up.

Alot of the players think no crafting skill is useful because they just think about level 50 and endgame, in that case they are correct, but what they don't think about is 9-49, during that phase of the game, the crafting skills are fully useful, but i guess they just think about what gets them the most profit for the least work.

This.
Gathering missions are the way to make $$. UWT, scavenging, slicing, archaeology. Gather the mats and sell them.

I must be doing something wrong, its been such a pain in the *** for me to get mission discoveries from slicing. Are you just supposed to send your comps on lock box missions or can they come from sliced tech part missions too?

Odd, I always open my boxes of course but I can only get my missions from running slicing missions that involve lock boxes. 400 slicing haven't bothered with tech part missions always pick up nodes from the world and still not a single mission discovery item from a box

No, what he means is "You can find slicing missions from doing crew skill missions for Lockboxes, not from Slicing Tech Parts (and that's not exactly true, crits of missions for Slicing Tech Parts usually bring schematics AND missions too).

Figures, but still the rate at which you get mission discoveries seems too low from lock box missions.
