I have slicing in the mid 300s right now, and I have to agree. I have about 130k at level 32 right now, but on my level 24 jedi knight, I never had more than 20k at a time. I think Bioware went a little overboard on training and repair prices, but that's just me.

if you don't do crew skills your fine. If you do slicing your rich. If you do anything else your constantly struggling for enough to even buy skills.

Is about the sum of it

Endgame though every skill is very nice, including slicing since it provides the mission items for the guaranteed artifact missions.

Just slicing is super OP for the first 49 levels and maintains it's free to do and really nice rewards status at 50 without even having to work the auction house if you choose not to

I have a lvl 27 Jedi Knight who is sitting on 80k right now. I have spent well over an additional 80k on extra items, and I do not have the Slicing skill.

Thanks to Apple we now have an "i" in Team. iTeam

I think they are getting ready to change that so you may not want to get crafting after all.

Slicing is only good now just because the crafting is pure profit. I can tell you right now that in the end slicing will pale in comparison to what actual crafting can do. So I promise. Dont cry. It will all even out <3

There is no purpose. There is solely will.

Im armstech/scavenging/investigation. Level 41. I have about 100k right now. This is AFTER spending about 280k previous level for new mount, skills and ship upgrades. My armstech is about 370/400. Investigation 50/400.
Dont know what people are doing to not have money in this game. I sell BoE gear on the auction house and i never buy vendor items/gear. Dark side gives a few extra credits when i get to sell people out. I raise my armstech through only crafting barrels which is dirt cheap. And i get by just fine...
