Blasted this nerf made it a few days to early!
Oh well let see if the crew skill is still worth it, as it does just **** up your craft skill as it doesn't provide anything usefull at all (except credits).

My fiance and i are both level 50, we've had 400 in slicing since level 25. I've had close to 2 million credits, my fiance has about 500k.

See the big difference? Both got slicing, one immensely richer than the other.

I've also got 400 in cybertech, scavenging, and my alt has 400 armortech and 400 underworld trading. I also dropped slicing, a temporary measure so I could get diplomacy to 400, which i planned to drop to take up slicing again, but i may ditch that idea if the nerf was to much.

It was needed indeed.

Although I can't say I made big bucks (got about 20K or so) since I only started playing a couple of days ago, it instantly hit me that when sending a companion on a quest which costs 300 credits (give or take) gets back with 1500 credits things are bound to get nerfed.

I was enjoying the cash, but can't blame them for doing it

Why do MMO's always have to nerf? Why not just bring the others up to its level and instead up bringing slicing down to be crap like the other skills.

Just have to wait to see how big the nerf was, odds are its still far more viable for wealth building than selling on GTN.

having slicing endgame is a bad idea, this nerf was not needed, you can either be useful endgame or having money, not both... slicing is useless on your main since you need 1 gathering 1 mission 1 crafting profession to get your epic stuff.

I am 26. Leveled the skill to about 340. The rewards were surprising, and I expected a nerf. I already have a stock pile though.

1500 credits is the average payoff for a level 50 slicing mission, and those cost about 1200 credits each.

To get 1500 credits from a 300 credit cost mission is uncommon.

Basically this. If Slicing nets any profit whatsoever, it will probably be better than any actual crafting profession in this game for months.
