For my lowest levels (Coruscant), I found them very valuable. They gave me more than enough money, then.

still looks clickable to me (won't actually test it). Yeah, those posts are getting annoying... way to ruin other player's fun...can't trust any link here anymore without carefully checking it first.

Technically still clickable but won't go anywhere (well, "swor.com" instead of swtor.com). So it was indeed appropriately edited. Just hover over the link (or long-press if you're on a touchscreen device) to see where the link goes before you click.

I have gone DAYS without a slicing crit... 4 in fact and I play a lot, so I find that slicing is a huge waste of time and credits... I have gone to several scavenging missions and making mk-9's with the use of 4 toons doing those. With Tanno Vic +5 crit, I get double mk-9's more, MUCH more often than any slicing crit. I even filed a ticket on the lack of slicing crits I was getting, that is how bad slicing was. Slicing... BAH!

My bad, I assumed he/she had planned to make the link technically non clickable and didn't notice the minor change to the address. I hovered over it, but the change was so small, I didn't notice it.

Thanks for clearing that up



On topic: There are days I get several crits and there are days I get none. I run slicing on 4 characters. For me, it's not bugged from all I can tell. Maybe you just had bad RGN.

oh its been like that for me as well. for maybe around 4 days with tharon, treek, hk. all 3 slicing mission never gave me crit. and i almost ran them like 4 times/day. so basically 16*3 to no result is really disappointing and time consuming and waste of creds as well. they are at 10k affection btw.


I did 1 letter change as it should look like what he posted still, but shouldnt help him

They are everywhere, because the devs have stated to include something against this in Patch 2.6, which is coming on next Tuesday.

This is just an "last-minute-frenzy", nothing more.

And I crit five times in six missions (two credit drain, one WtW, and two Unsliceable) on two characters on Friday and Saturday. Streaks happen.

Remember these words well:
  • Random does not equate to Even.
  • No single mission run affects the result of any other mission
  • A 22% chance to succeed (the best you can get with Slicing: max affection + companion bonus) is also a 78% chance of failure.
  • And lastly, only very large numbers of trials bear out that the system is working. Back in October I tracked 1500 crew skill events and even that is a small sample.
