[Synthweaving] Best item to get MK-9 components?

Pre-2.0, for the MK-6 augment kits, I used to RE Dark Synth Belts to get the MK-6 components, because the belts only took 2 of each material. In 2.0, the only items I can craft that drop MK-9 components when REed take 6, 8, 10 of each material...

Am I just overlooking something obvious or am I really going to have to spend about 120k in resources per MK-9 augment kit...?

You are not mistaken. The best profession to make per MK-9 augment kit is artifice, which will cost half of anything else. The other professions need to be brought down to the artifice level.
On the Internet, you can be anything you want. It is strange so many people choose to be stupid.

Ugh, that's gross. Thanks for the reply though!

What do you make to get the MK-9s as artifice? I have a 400 artifice I haven't touched since hitting the cap--I can always fix that lol.

BioChem can get them for similar cost as Artifice as well with implants.

Yep. Also, Bio can farm mobs and nodes on Makeb but Artifice can only gather from nodes.

I would say that Bio is king of MK-9 Augment Components at present.

I too was shocked at the cost of the MK-9 components, roughly 90 crystals and 90 fragments for 10 components. I'm wondering if the material cost is bugged. Doesn't make sense for a belt to take as much as a chestpiece to craft. For now, like others have said I'm using biochem or artifice

Yeah, this threw me off as well.

Anyone know the best thing for Artifice to craft for them?
