Not sure if it's the problem in this case, but people underestimate this. When The Burning Crusade came out, I picked up an addon that would auto-vendor gray stuff, and keep a running total of how much it sold the items for. By the time I was done questing on one toon, I had earned over half of what I'd need for epic flight just off of a single toon.

This is especially relevant in SWTOR, where at any time when you won't need your companion for a minute, you can send them off to sell all the gray stuff in your inventory, even if you're nowhere near a vendor.

Yea, but your alt can't gather where he cant go, so you have to lvl him. Also you could use his companions to mission the mats for you, but again, to have enough companions to make it worth your while, you have to lvl up. Also, your gonna need creds for those missions, so no, the only way to go about it effeciently is to lvl your craft skills as you lvl

Sending your companion to sell grey junk does work. It worked the final two beta weekends and it's currently working in live.

Never had that problem. Did you report it?

Exactly what im going for, schematics, will worry about the crafting of them later... many alts...
