Not getting mission discovery missions

I am having a problem and it's frustrating the hell out of me. I am in a string of about 10 - 15 runs and have got one 340 purple mission discovery from a purple 340 slicing mission. I keep getting basic stuff back 4 blue slicing mats, 4 purple slicing mats and 1 lockbox with about 2k. I am making money due to the inflated price of might augments but very little when I am buying the missions for 65k and up. I am 400 slicing, 6k comp affection, +10 slicing crit comp, and even bought the legacy crafting crap.

First of all, you cannot get missions from tech parts. Secondly, there are no 10 crit companions in the game. And lastly, the legacy perk only affects crafting.

I am not getting them from the purple 340 slicing missions...which are supposed to drop mission discovery missions. Also, Theran Cedrax is +10 Slicing Crit. And, I read in the forums that the legacy perk is also for missions (even though it's not not worded that way). That may not be true.

Sounds like a streak of bad luck.

Sources I have seen say Tharan is a +10 slicing efficiency, not crit. That just means the companion works faster.

As far as I understand,and i remember reading a quote somewhere, the legacy crafting perk ONLY effects critical success on crafting. Not missions, or gathering. Companion bonuses definitely help out so I recommend that for sure.

The thing is, because getting an augmented result doesn't really matter that much anymore due to augmentation kits, but when you craft an augment and crit you get two.

This^^^ All absolutely correct. Is op saying he should GET 340 mission discoveries from running 340 slicing mission discoveries? Uh... No. Just.... No. LOL!

It's bad luck, that's all. You only get missions when you crit.

And, yes, like the others said, the +10 doesn't help for crits only for time, and no one really knows if the legacy thing works (the DEVs have been wrong on this topic in the past, it was corrected by someone else, but the correction didn't contain info aboutt gathering missions, iirc).

Get your companion to 10k affection, it doesn't cost that much.

That being said... you can make quite some profit from the 4 purple mats that you get. These mats are the reason why the missions costs so much.

Yes your right but regardless I have not had a crit on a slicing mission in about 30 missions now.
