Could you elaborate on this? Because I don't see any reason why Synthweaving & Armormech have no value due to the Cartel store...
On Ebon Hawk at least, I have made all of my millions off of Synthweaving. People underestimate the value of those orange schematics, especially for belts/boots/bracers. People want that stuff as they're leveling up, or to stick their endgame mods in for different looks. They take tiny amounts of often low level resources but easily sell for 20k apiece. Adds up really quick.
Augmentation Kit MK-6 are still selling like hotcakes for about 47k apiece, and purple augments are selling for around 70k each.
I just hate seeing a profession dismissed as worthless because you can't make one item worth 500k. There are different crafting styles and no right or wrong, just like anything else. I personally prefer to sell tons of cheaper things with minimal effort than have to grind and waste tons of money REing mods before I get anything worth selling for a huge profit lol.
This is correct, there's always been and probably always will be a market for orange belts and bracers. And depending on the market, you can sell them for 10k bottom dollar or almost name your price if there are few other sellers. The cost of the mats is just so low, you're almost guaranteed to turn a profit regardless of what price you sell at.
