Well, this explains why mats like Bronzium and such sell well, but when i tried to sell Grade 7 crafting supplies I got from a Cartel Pack they didn't get picked up.... guess I'll be sticking with the crafting mats that I can get from scavenging and such....

Thanks for the reply. I didn't realize that the legacy points only accumulated within a single server, but that makes sense. How does one share credits, supplies, etc., amongst characters? Just mail them to one another, or are there common storage areas?

What I find odd is that even consumables are dropping in price...My exotech stims go for closer to 15k vs. the 18-20k they were selling at a couple weeks ago.

Could be just seasonal. All games tend to have times of the year when populations boom, like summer and the holidays. Other times, like after the first of the year, there can be a big drop off.

Or maybe people finally got a look at what's coming in 2.0 (grindtastic comm caps, no endgame crafting, and class balance epic fail) and they just said to heck with it and went back to other games.

Please explain this. What is making our materials worthless?

My guess is he's referring to Molecular Stabilizers, et. al. As the demand for crafted Grade 26/27 stuff will go down (or away) when 2,0 drops.

low level stuff wont be affected really, its just the high end stuff that is losing its value since it will no longer be the best gear available.

So, is it poor business to sell crafted items for ~25% of what other sellers have listed on the GTN? I'm talking about low level (10/11) orange and artifact items. I can't see any character of that level dumping 25K into a some light greaves with no mods (just three open slots). Perhaps they are, but I know I wouldn't. Interestingly, a few days ago many of these items lasted minutes to a few hours on the network, but in the last couple days similar items have come back to me as unsold.

That's the retail business, I suppose!

A lot of guilds have been raiding to the PTS. So demand has gone down on the live servers.
