Thats not really true. GTN kiosks were in other places too (at least on Alderaan that I can remember).

I did, and I found taking Scavenging (used for Armormech, Armstech, and Cybertech), Archaeology (Used for Synthweaving and Artifice) are the best 2 gathering skills to take since they are always in demand.

For your final skill you can take Slicing (Chance to find modifiable schematics which will sell for a ton, extra gold upfront, mats for rare Cybertech items) or Underworld Trading (Chance to find modifiable schematics which will sell for a ton, UWT Metals used in Armormech, and Cybertech, and UWT Fabrics used in Synthweaving).

They were, but were removed in a later build. Someone in EGA will have to update what the current status is.

You'll just miss many of the bop items the crafting skills provide. All of them have something great that is unique to only the crafter. But yes, I suppose you will be a far richer man by the time you reach level 50 than those who used their money and resources to craft stuff. Definitely go with slicing then.

In Thanksgiving Weekend Beta, they had GTN stations on the fleet space stations too.

I'm actually relying on people like you

I plan to take Slicing, Cybertech and Investigation. Looking to get some free cool items and extra mission content and schematics while saving up some cash to help fund my cybertech.

So I plan to be buying materials off of auction (provided of course that I can make enough money to do that).

Seriously, I will continue to call it an Auction House. I will call Operations "Raids" and may even continue to call Flashpoints "Five Mans", though I may learn "four mans".

Silly name changes to make it seem different, but the lingo is already mmo culture.

ps...Avatars are still toons too.
