Crew skill window.

missions. Seriously, the grade 9 gathering skill missions are very cost effective because while your companions are running missions you can be running an FP or daily quests where the credit rewards more than offset the cost of running the missions.

If you are having trouble getting the Scavenged Compounds missions needed to get Turadium there is the relog/change areas method - changing areas re-randomizes the mission list.

But if you really want to just farm the materials you want droid rich environments:

- Flashpoints: HM mando raiders, HM Hammer Station, HM Cademimu, and both CZ FPs (SM and HM)
- daily areas: CZ and (to a lesser extent) Oricon

In all cases you are just as likely to get Mythra as Turadium but that can't be helped because there are no Turadium specific gathering nodes.

On a good load (and most are), you can have companions (including Ship Droid) running Rich Mythra, Bountiful Mythra, Rich Turadium, Bountiful Turadium, and Moderate Tri-Copper Flux missions while having another companion with you while you run CZ-198...there's a Lvl 9 Scavenging Node at the entrance to the Dailies, and the tougher Droids can be farmed for Lvl 9 mats as well.

Edit: Deleted erroneous reference to Underworld Trading crits

HUH? I think you've mixed up Scavenging and Underworld Trading
  • Underworld Trading generates Frasium (on anything but a failure) and Berylius on crits and Schematics randomly.
  • Scavenging generates Mythra or Turadium depending on the mission run. Crits grant two extra of the specific scavenged item nothing more.

You are correct, so I deleted that sentence from my original reply. I have UT and Scav on same char, so I mixed it up a bit. My bad.

Heroic 2 Area (The Specialists), On Makeb. Tons of strong and Elite Droids. I did it on my sniper at Makeb launch, to power up my cybertech.
