[Biochem] Exotech consumables far too costly to make.

This game has some of the most expensive "standard" crafted consumables I've ever seen in an MMO. Why are these still so expensive? I thought that when you nerfed Rakata reusables and saw that everyone was still joining the Biochem army you would get the message (that a lot of Biochemists were pointing out to you long before that even happened), but nothing has changed. As a Biochemist, do everyone a favor and make these things cost a reasonable amount of materials to craft. I promise you everyone planning on doing a lot of Dungeon Finder runs with people that will never use consumables in hard modes will thank you.

While you're at it, slap the guy who put the Biochem Warzone schematic on the PTR. Or at least buy him a calculator.

It's basically going to make me drop BioChem for.... well... nothing, since the rest of the skills suck.


If takes min 1h for diplomacy, and 24-30 min per sample/chem/compound.

If I spend and pay attention to crafting when I'm on, then MAYBE I get to make 10 stims a day, that get used without notice.....

You get 3 per batch, for the Exotech stims at least.

I don't know about medpacs/adrenals.

Can the new Exotech schematics be RE'd to reusable? I'm assuming that can't be.

You get three for those as well. Currently, I think the stims are fine. They last 2 hours and persist through death, and they cost about the same amount as the hyperbattle since they return 3, although now that I think about it, hyperbattles need Smart Cells now, so that price has gone down a bit.

The medpacs and adrenals, are still a bit on the pricey side to make.

No, they're fine.
They are best in game, and don't really cost that much to make 3 at a time.

The problem is the cost of making adrenals they last what 15 secs and cost the same to make as anything else not sure what the thinking is on that.

15 seconds of a huge damage burst is actually quite a lot when you think about it.
They aren't candy, and with the CD they have, you can use them once per boss fight if needed.
