And about the price tag - you missed the other side. It says : "Social Rank Required"
You can take any path you like to make enough creds to buy the best gear if you don't choose to craft it yourself. However, running normal Ess or BT with 3 guildies for 2 straight days is not a path that leads to the best gear, thank Lucas.

Because sitting around GTN pushing crew button is oh so special and sacred?

Not to mention there are people who gain social ranks via slower methods.

Yeah because spamming crew skills is free.

We had this discussion a month ago, Astridd. Leveling crew skills costs CREDITS. Lots of CREDITS. You know this. Why are you being so childish?

Once again I don't need to label you childish to make my point, here it is:

CREDIT huh? You mean pile of those 10k rewards and stuff you get for opening 4 boxes or killing 6 pub npcs under a minute?

Social rank costs too, whether you want to admit or not. Time, effort, group members, or whatever incorporeal resources I can't convert to credits.

I'm not asking best shell in the universe for nothing. IF players paid equivalent effort to get that shell, it deserve one more hole, as long as it's orange. Balancing it from there is up to the developers.

Okay, Astridd. It's easier (less time commitment and effort) to get to 400 in a craft and 2 gathering skills (edit: and then crit craft orange gear) than it is to get Social VI.

Wow, you're so right.

EDIT2: And I didn't "label you childish". I was asking why you are being so chidish about this. Maybe I should have said petulant. Ok. I label you petulant.

Orange gear is just a model/texture and has no bearing on performance. There's no reason for it not to have a way to add an augment slot to it, preferably with some item made by crafters.
