I'm a BioChemist and accidentally reverse engineered a whole inventory stack of Medpacks. It did give me a blue reciepe; however. Was this just luck? or is there a better chance of getting next tier schematic when you Rev-Eng a stack?

It's random, and isn't related to stacks.
I'm not too crazy about RE'ing entire stacks unless they make it an option... or at least have a pop-up window to confirm the amount to RE.

Are you sure? I would hope that each stack would have it's own percentage, and chance to crit. Is there any way to unstack them? I hit 200 Biochem last night, and it's starting to get expensive to not know how it really works.

You can unstack items by holding Shift and clicking/dragging the item. Having said that, Reverse-engineering stacks does take into account each item in the stack. In beta I was pretty much guaranteed to discover a Blue Mod schematics if I RE'd a stack of 5 mods.

I would like to know too. It feels like I get the upgraded recipe easier if I RE bigger stacks as opposed to single items. However, I would like to know if this is really true or my imagination. Don't want to waste resources if I don't need to.
