GATHERING! Did you all forget this is a gathering skill?

Youre supposed to be running around hoth and belsavis and all the other level 50 zones for those level 5 and 6 lockboxes, not sitting in town paying a couple hundred credits to generate 5000.

The missions skills are about procing the epic missions and schematics, thats why you pay for them, they give you lockboxes sure, but they are primary for getting missions.

Slicing in its current state is much better, when you pay for a mission you pretty much break even, so the goal is to do missions until you get epic missions to sell on the ah.

If you want a 100% profit from slicing, then run around the world and gather like everyone else. Slicing was the only gathering profession where you could make more money doing missions then actually gathering nodes and now it is fixed. Stop freaking out, and do it the right way.

Your premise is that Slicing isn't suppose to profit from missions?

And your money is suppose to be from random mission gains?

Are you serious?

You aren't a game dev, you aren't a BW employee on the design team, you are just some punk talking out your ***. Get over yourself.

Now that the missions lose money, everyone will just use it to gather.

Welcome to WoW.

Well you are right, im sure bioware will unnerf slicing and we will all go back to making thousands of credits just because we deserve it.

Other gathering professions don't really profit from missions, but do from actual gathering in the world, so why should slicing be different?

Other professions get SOMETHING from missions. Slicers get literally nothing, just a credit loss.
