[Synthweaving] Does Lvling Now Make Sending Gear to Alts Useless?

I think I'm totally in the use outfit designer + misions/heroic gear mode to save cash on mods now. But I was crafting some low lv gear for my scorc, just to slap on over my korriban greens once I got to DK proper.

Can my synth!scorc craft maybe a few blue pieces and send them to my new smuggler? I'm just kinda annoyed that while lvling fast is good, it's making skills like synthweaving obsolete for my new toons so they can't get good gear.

Honestly the only thing i craft for a lvling toon is barrels/hilts, and for only about every 10 levels. Gear from heroics will keep you set on the rest.
I'm not even sure where i am.

Synthweaving crafts alacrity and critical augments, most sought out augments in the game. Every crew skill has 90% of schematics that are useful for a brief period of time.
Choices matter... I choose not to sub until conquest is fixed...

Some armor pieces may be desirable to use in the outfit designer, but actually used as armor for stats...not worth the time/credits. As stated, you will get more gear than you will know what to do with. Use that for stats, and learn how to use the outfit designer for looks. Really nice system once you figure it out.

Oh yeah. I forgot about the outfit thing. I filled my first free slot, and it's 20K per slot after that correct?

Crit/Ala augs and kits? Sweet.

I've never actually worn or made auguments. I suppose I could try that out with my 70 mara warrior.

I wouldn't waste augment kits/augments for a character your leveling. Do that when you hit max level.

So long as you are not way overleveling content then IMO it is worth crafting equipment for alts. I've used this example before because it is such a stark difference: crafted equipment for a level 24 character purple gear is rating 86. Rating 86 item modifications require level 34 to use. That means if you are playing a level 24 character on Tattooine that character will have better stats than anything else available and that gear will still be very good through Alderaan where level sync peaks at level 34; but if you are level 24 on CS or DK then level sync nerfs the benefits.

That said, if you have DvL XP gear you should be using that .

I must have 15 bays full of purple moddings back from the early days, just can't bring myself to vendoring them, but really with heroics blues and indeed DvL gear I never, EVER, use them.

I do craft weapons tho. Not having a purple weapon makes me cringe
