Ive ran several of these and the companion is gone for nearly 3 hours and comes back with crap. Is this intentional?

Slicing450
1 - purple ma
2- blues
1- lockbox

Biochem
5 each of all 4 green mats

Diplomacy
2-purple
I forgot how many of the blue maybe 4


These returns are AWFUL for 3 hours wait and the cost to buy missions. I'm really hoping this is a bug.

I'm betting not as this is what was seen on the PTS. The absolute worst was running a 450 UWT mission and getting nothing but purple fabric, no metals.

All the 450 missions for gathering and mission skills return very little compared to the cost and time, and compared to 340 of grade 6.

Hey there folks. I am going to send your concerns about the new Crew Skill missions along to the developers to see if there's something awry. When I have more information, I'll post in this thread.

@Amber

Also, please pass along that a Scavenged Compound missions for the Scavenging crew skill is giving out a rare blue crafting material that is Metal, instead of compound.

Also in regards to the blue crafting materials, they are pretty useless at this moment. None of the schematics available uses this, it's a waste of credits and time that we spend doing the crafting missions. it would be best if someone crits on a mission, it yields a regular green useful material and a blue one. Just giving out a blue rare materials from mission skills is pointless.

Thanks!

Yup. I guess they're "Working as Intended" as I wrote in the other thread http://www.swtor.com/community/showthread.php?t=622670

I did intensive testing on the PTS 2.0 and the below is a small portion of my testing for UWT and Slicing during the PTS. (in Spoiler tags)
After around the 20th missions, I converted everything to Excel format.
Note: Mission times and Prices may have change on Live ( I have no idea, because I don't have early access )

UWT : Initial Yields and Yields after the 3/6 Patch

Slicing : Initial Yields and Yields after the 3/6 Patch

You've listed the base amounts. If you crit you can get three purples excerpt for slicing and as many as 20 green mats. Still garbage compared to the 40 or so they used to give and they take twice as long.
