on the general concept, this game has a very unbalanced approach to money.

while your leveling, unless to take time out of the process to gather money, you will always be strapped. higher level skills are simply too expensive. once you hit 50, money is easy to make...as long as you enjoy doing the same boring repetitive stuff day in and day out.

on the origination question OP: simply put, you will have to take time out of the normal questing process and devote it to "making money". Plus, you will have to NOT SPEND IT. the nature of the income generation in this game is if you do anything outside of buying skills, you will be broke unless you specifically go out to make money.

Best way to get extra income as you level is to get 3 gathering skills, or 2 and slicing. sell everything you get on the GMT, and slice every box you come across. if you decide to craft as you level (for gear on your toons), it can be done, just be aware that unless you have a lvl 50 doing constant dailies (which get reeeal old after a few months), you will not have spare funds. crafting is a money sink in this game. and this is from a dedicated crafter like myself.
"I just hit 50 and finished my class storyline, but I still haven't been able to decide which AC to choose. Leveling solo as a warrior wasn't difficult, so I kept putting off the decision.
Anyone else having the same problem? "~ lagerhat - And who says warriors are broke?

Dailies are the way to go I think. You can get yourself up to 2 million in about 3 days if your grind out all three planets, and maybe even up to 3 or 4 mil with a second toon. They really aren't that bad either. Get some nice music, a snack, and devote 2 hours of your life to getting 1 toon through all three. If you have enough time to worry about your money, you have enough time to do dailies
Anyways, that's just my advice. I'm up to 2mil now and that's just from dailies and flashpoints(around 60k per flashpoint if you really try and find credits).

I do all the end game dailies which is about 300k a day plus I sell about x10 MK-6 kits a day which is another 380-420k a day.

So I roughly make 680-720k a day. So by the end of the week I'm making around 4.76-5.04M. (Sunday-Saturday)

No they are not. Otherwise I would not be here looking for advice. I'd just play the game. The credit sinks in this game as you level are huge compared to the money you made from my perspective...and that's fine, I just wanted some advice on how to make some creds to offset the costs.

It always cracks me up when people make comments like this.

Also, just to be clear, looking for ways to generate creds while leveling. I realize that creds come pretty easy once you hit 50.

Thank yous to those that offered advice.

Slicing, scavenger, and another sending skill like treasure hunting, or investigation. Sell all you get. Plus with scavenging, it's a pain, but hey everything you sell off, that's a bit more credits in your pocket.

Well you'd have credits, if you didn't just throw them away the moment you get em. Save up, its not hard to gain credits. Yes there are a lot of credit sinks, but theres also a lot of ways you can gain credits if you just look around.

Sell endgame PvE-gear. Thats the big profits.

If you cant do that, go for the minor profits combined with dailies, it adds up quickly. You can sell a lot of low-level blue gear with a decent profit. I got artifice on my main, and put out blue hilts for 8,000 credits which seems to be a price low-level people are willing to pay. Can do endgame crystals as well, along with offhands and enhancements. It's a lot of work if you want to keep it up over time, but theres no such thing as free money.

Selling crafting materials is a good income as well. Especially Advanced Neural Augmentor and Mandalorian Iron. Or you can farm space missions and sell the mats from the grade 8 boxes you can buy for 200 fleet comms. Each Molecular Stabilizer goes for 200k on my server atm. Takes about 1 hour to do every space mission if you got the best parts, which gives you 100 fleet comms in total. That means one grade 8 mats box every second day. Not guaranteed the stabilizers, but the energy matrixes sell as well, just not as high.
