Lvl 65 Biochem seeking guidance

Hey y'all,

I'm at lvl 65 Biochem and lvl 15 in my class and am looking for some guidance. I have got schematics for 3 level 8 purples so far, but the rest I am still at green. I have three questions:

Should I grind them all up to get the purple schematic, even though I won't use them all?
Is there any value in RE'ing purple stims/medpacks?
How/when will I learn schematics for packs higher than level 8?

I appreciate you taking the time to save me some time. Thank you.

From what I have found so far, purples can only be used by Bio-Chemists. So with that in mind, I personally only grind out the purples that I will be using personally. While trying to get as many blues as possible sine those can be traded/sold.

Hope that helps and hopefully that answered your question.

This is accurate, the only purples you should craft are those that you will use. Blues will be the primary money makers though, so craft them if you have the supplies available.

Also,
if you go to the trainer, there is a drop down selection to view all taught schematics rather than available only, you'll be able to see what levels you learn new things.

I've just been mostly chain leveling and trying to keep Biochem up with simple green schematics as I go along. No sense getting purples for level stuff imo... Well maybe except for 1. Got a level 1 purple armor adrenal.

Hate to be a nub and chime in with an additional question, but I didn't want to start another thread for this.

I've read where Biochem enables you to create Biological Implants. Granted, my toon is only level 33, but I have yet to see any schematics for such implants and thus haven't crafted any. Where does one obtain the schematics for Biological Implants?

When you find a Biochem trainer, you can set him to display everything that can be trained, regardless of level. That'll show you the implants, and at what Biochem level you need to start making.

Thank you as well. Strange thing, my toon is over 200 in Biochem, but has not seen a schematic yet for Bio Implants. Must be looking on the wrong planet or something. Just left Alderaan.

Anyway, the info is much appreciated. Will check in game again.

You can sell the purples you make for a decent amount of money if you're lucky. Even if you charge a lot it's probably cheaper than having the guy with biochem trying to create one themselves.

Just for "fun" i made a lvl8 purple stimpack, just to see how much money and time it would cost. After 2-3 hours sending my companion out on missions(diplomacy) and 4k credits later i had the stimpack. Knowing that i would rather have spent 1-2k and bought it off GTN.
