    So I just changed to Medic, after ages of dreaming about Pew pew lightning. Should be fairly familiar, my main was a resto druid and it seems they don't play too differently.

    Either way, any HOT links I should read / vids I should watch? I'm fairly confident I'll be just fine but it was fairly last minute after all the investigation I've done on Sorcerers :)

    Yeah, they're tough to kill. As are medics, have you seen some at play in pvp endgame? What a nightmare to kill.

    For one I'm trying to consider which crafting skill would be more beneficial. Cannot decide between Biochem for medpacks and stims (Flasks), or Cybertech for armor/weapon mods and, most importantly aoe stun grenades (which should be massively helpful in PvP, considering medics do not have ranged CC).

    http://www.torhead.com/schematic/blM54vL
    http://www.torhead.com/schematic/9B9yq9e - BoP

    http://www.torhead.com/schematic/4Okx5Tx - BoP, 1 more target and 2 more secs duration, with a 2s treshhold.

    http://www.torhead.com/schematic/2xpEOXs - BoP AoE knockdown

    Any thoughts peeps?

    http://www.torhead.com/schematic/cjng7hf - 2h flask, not consumed on use, increases cunning+power (great for medic), bind on pickup.
    http://www.torhead.com/schematic/ayKJt3M - in comparison to the non-reusable one, it actually has more cunning/power on the reusable(bop) one.

    The thing is, both have an improved, reusable bop version of their widely available version, I guess it'd be down to what you would be spending more credits on, stims or grenades. Though the bop grenade IS slightly better...

    Starting to lean towards cybertech/scavenging/underworld myself. Maybe skip cybertech while levelling and get slicing instead for extra dollah.

    I'd suggest going with Scavenging and whichever skill provides the rare materials for Cybertech as your first two Crew Skills.

    Might be an idea for people to post what Crew Skills they're going for so things could be coordinated.

    Tis scavenging and underworld for cybertech. But since I don't intend to actually spend time on "crafting" til I hit 50, I might as well pick up slicing for the money, then replace it with cyber :)

    But yes, cybertech might end up saving me money, I suspect I'd end up spending more on grenades than flasks since they last 2 hours, so the reusable grenades probably win D:

    About Cybertech.....

    Can you make armor upgrades AND droid upgrades ?

    Looking at some of the guides online, it seems to suggest that scavenging and underworld trading are best for going down the amour upgrades route and slicing and treasure hunting is for if you go down the droid route. Something to do with types of recipes and types of gathered materials you will get depending on the which two of these 4 skills you take.

    Now, since there is so much false information about the game out there, can anyone who has been in the beta for a while shed any light on this as I was just wondering if there is any truth in it, or if it is BS.

    In short -

    Cybertech - Droid Upgrades, Earpieces, Mods (for both Armour and Weapons)
    Armstech - Weapons
    Armortech - Armour

    Scavenging provides basic materials for all of these Crew Skills, and rarer materials are provided from one of the Mission skills.

    Cybertech is the skill to assemble droid armor, earpieces, grenades, armoring, mods and miscellaneous gadgets. Armoring and mods are upgrade modifications that augment combat ability. Earpieces are external mini-computers that are worn on or near the ear. They enhance combat prowess by giving audio and visual feedback to the wearer or through direct neural feedback via an external nerve relay. Cybertechs can reverse engineer their crafted items and possibly discover new ways to improve their creation. The gathering skill Scavenging provides crafting resources for Cybertech.

    Recommended Gathering Skill: Scavenging (Scavenged Metals and Compounds). Recommended Mission Skills: Underworld Trading (Underworld Metals).

    What everyone previously said :p

    Ultimately, the thing about crafting at the moment is, apparently most tradeskills have an end-game bop/unlimited charges item, ultimately it's about deciding what you will be buying off other players and what will you be saving money on by having unlimited charges. In my case, it's a tossup between unlimited charge flask or unlimited charge aoe sleep grenades.

    Unlimited charge AOE sleep grenades.... that shite sounds imba.

    Tvar Veteran BOON

    Though rolling anything cos it seems imba or whatever at this point isn't that clever. The game will change a lot from how it looks now, patches and balance stuff when enough ppl actually play the game, PvP and PvE a lot and so on, hence rolling the role you aim for, the looks and the gameplay you're after is the key to getting satisfied with whatever you choose to play imo.

    I agree Tvar, but I think this is something that will stay, they've made sure every profession has some sort of unlimited charge bop item for you to save money on your own consumables. Which is probably why you can only have 1 crafting skills. Can you imagine having both Cybertech and Biochem? Hello unlimited charge PvP items AND flasks.

    Although I think that might make economy a bit stale. They should make them like "multiple charges", like a stack of 5 for the cost of 1 craft. Unlimited is just too good :)

    gtfo of my loot table!!

    Also i dont think you want to go cybertech + biochem, can only gather mats for one of em and none of the rare mats through missions. buying them is gonna be a pain if u go that way unless you plan on getting an alt to farm it
