I'm currently levelling up my Cybertech crafting skill but I'm wondering if this skill is useful and if I should spend my time in it?

1) Can I make cool/useful/rare things?
2) Can I make credits off of it?

Thank you.

At mas level what you will be able to do.

Craft purple ear pieces.
Craft purple armorings that will be used for raiding with orange gear.
Craft ship modifications.
Grenades ... not sure if they will be used.

How does the colour work? What's the best colour and the worst colour?

depends if you want to make pvp.

If you want to pvp then get your armor-profession OR your weapon-profession. Seems you need it for the best stuff!

Colors go like this:

Gray (Junk)
White (Standard)
Green (Good)
Blue (Great)
Purple (Amazing)
Deep Purple (Best)

Also, there's Orange, which is custom armor that you can fit mods into.

Yes, Cybertech makes high-demand items that no one's making right now. Armoring Mods are on the top of that list, since it's the primary way to upgrade custom armor. In fact, mods in general are going to be in very high demand.

The way i see it is that mod gear will likely make great starting tier raid gear for alts since its easy to buy mods and gear up that way.

More then anything honestly im just hoping the lvl50 speeder is awesome lol. And the granades will help with managing power costs in skill rotaions for some classes.
