Prices are already way up from what they were yesterday, still not covering the materials but getting close. I really don't think the majority of these items are coming from the cartel market. Aren't they bound to your character for a couple for a couple days before you can list them on the gtn? Because the lowest prices I've seen were on patch day.
Early patch day I sold 5 of the ship parts I bought with the cartel coins I got for resubbing for 1.2 million each.
That night they had dropped to 300k.
I had planned on reverse engineering them all but, oh well .
Then just as I was getting ready to fork out 1.9 million for a 27 barrel , someone advertised on fleet that they could make it for free with mats.
Happy Patch Day
