There are plenty of crafters in the game. The crafting system is not the best I have seen, and understand if you find it less than enjoyable. I would recommend you stop crafting and instead engage in fun game activities...other players that do find entertainment in the profession will provide what you need.

As to Bio, the blue meds work fine...do not get stuck on reusable meds. The benefits are not as drastic as one might think.

I made a post asking devs why 4sec cast to RE? Why green pieces does not stack? Imagine if you could RE 50 implants at the same time... The quality of life would be improved a lot. Why not an option to not click Accept when you RE something? I have no option, let me turn off this message.

I crafted 300x MK-9, call me crazy but I did.. Now imagine RE 3k green heavy armor boots.

What a load of total nonsense!

Can I have your stuff?

Why do that when a slap in the face will work just fine?

Crafting in this game is not that bad. The only thing that's frustrating at all is reverse engineering for patterns but that's a small gripe overall.

None of the professions are "needed" at end game. You can buy everything from other crafters, and leveling professions basically earns you money at endgame (the amount varies by profession and by which patterns you have), but that's it. You do know that the reusable biochem stims/adrenals aren't as good as the non-reusable blue ones, right?

OP reeks of ignorance about crafting. This isn't like WoW where professions boost your dps. Everyone can use everything crafters make (with the exception of reusable biochem things) so it literally doesn't matter whether you level professions or not. It's an income stream, yes, so it's helpful, but you could go through the game without leveling a single profession ever.

I craft in every profession across eight different characters and will branch out into a ninth one once I finish leveling and gearing all of my characters...

This is the ONLY

read ONLY

MMO where I haven't ended up throwing the keyboard through the monitor out of frustration with the crafting engine! In WoW and LOTRO it's wander gather wander gather wander wander gather... in SWG it was pray to GOD the elite mobs weren't sitting on top of gatherable resources.. in EVE its sit sit sit sit sit oh look a pirate sit sit sit sit sit cargo bay full sit sit sit sit sit dock sit sit sit sit... repeat.

And don't even get me STARTED on STO or DCUO's crafting systems - in STO you have to enter systems at random and hope to the MMO gods that the material you're looking for is in this section of space! In DCUO you have to play fricken where's waldo - there's no skill! No leveling required... just wander around and hope to high heaven you get fricken lucky!

This system lets me use my money for something - this system means I can run Ops and solo content and group content and leave the boring 'gathering' to my minions... this is WAY preferable to 'grinding' HOURS in the hopes you'll get a 'purple' level crafting material!

In this game, all you gotta do... is pay up, babe

I thought this thread was going to say its to easy and shallow. For real the crafting is to easy and can be maxed out in 4 hours.
Can I has more Sandbox?

Crafting is a nice time killer for when I don't feel like doing much of anything but standing around on fleet and socializing.

For the longer missions, crafts, ect, I usually just set it and forget it just before logging off for the night.

As previously mentioned, if you don't enjoy it, don't do it.

This is my 10th month in SWTOR and I never even tried crafting skills. Im a rich , wealthy Jedi Master but I only using gathering crew skills - Slicing , Treasure Hunting. Crafting is not for lazy players like us , so dont do it. This game its not about crew skills actually ...
