Armstech vs Armortech

I play a merc BH, have around 200 armstech, and 300 scav/investigation. Wondering if its worth switching to armortech. The thing is, my guildie has a higher level armstech, and recently, he's been making all of my weapons.

Should I switch, is it worth it? I would have to drop investigation for underworld trading, or no?

thanks

Will he always be your guildie? Would you like to be able to sell your own gear later on or do you want it only for yourself?

Armortech will let you wear more of your own creations instead of only being able to use the one weapon you can create for yourself. That's a lot more slots you can fill all by yourself.

To get the materials you need for armormech, you will want scavenging and underworld trading.

My Merc is armortech/underworld trading/scavenging. I love it. You can make so much more stuff for yourself and your companions, especially Mako.

Crafted armor, as it stands, is useless once you get level 50 sets. It is easy to get to level 50 and all the raid content and flashpoints are extremely easy even when undergeared...

So as it stands crafted armor is total crap compared to fully moddable oranges. Even with augment slots... which are insanely rare. Personally... to make it even remotely worth it I think all crafted gear should have an augment slot.

So basically... do anything that isn't an armor crafting profession.

Um... crafters can make Fully Modded oranges. The schems come from UT. I've bought a few myself =)
