Has their been any confirmation through official channels or not if we are going to get higher level crew skills come this next expansion? Say to 600 for example, etc. I didn't see another thread about this subject matter, so I decided to make one.

Short answer: in the fifteen years I have played MMOs there has always been a crafting skill increase with a level cap increase.

I was curious because all the high end crafted things on the GTN have plummeted in price/value. I figured as such, this was the case. Thanks!

No, they haven't, least on my server. I'm amazed at prices for purple stuff.

On my server some items have dipped in value but not significantly worse than the normal low end (i.e. normal low end for item X is 40k item X now seen at 39k)

Take a close look at the recipe on the bottom of this data mined article: https://torcommunity.com/database/up...afting-changes

It much adds to the confusion.

It is for a level 64 piece of armor. On top it shows crafting levels 500, 515, 530, and 545 whick would make one think that crafting will go from 500 to 550. On the bottom it shows requires Armormech 500 which would imply that the crafting skills will not increase. That seems to be a contradiction.

The datamined piece also says "With 4.0 there are currently no new crew skill-acquired crafting materials.". That is aside form Exotic Drops from HM Flashpoints. If no new crafting mateials, how can the gathering and or mission shills advance from 500?

It is not clear how much credibility can be give to supposed datamined information. So at this point everything is up in the air.

Maybe Crafting will be like the Congressional vote on Obamacare, you have to do it post expansion to find out what is in it.

Probably will increase to 550 ...
Also gathering for mats on yavin 4 for endgame 500 you don't need to be 500 ...You need to be 451 I think.Will probably work the same way in KotFE

Yes, it appears it's an increase above 500, probably to 550 judging by the screenshots with the new sub-components.
