So a couple of questions from a newcomer [Not Solved]

Recommended Posts

I just loved the crafting system, there's always something happening for people like me that love to multitask game play and crafting at the same time..

 

But I am a curious mind, I want to understand everything. So therefore I ask..

I will probarly add more questions here with time. and I will update the post with an answer with time to.^^ thx in advance.

 

 

 

1 -[solved] I asked this before, but the answers I am getting is not that good still. Il try in this part of the forum then. When I RE (Reverse Engineer) a stack of items, anyone actually did a test to se if we get a critical check on each item in the stack?

 

No big confirmation but it seems people are using stacks and it is working.

 

2 -[solved] The bonus of each companion . it says +10 for say slicing... +10 to what? the skill it self? to a chance to get more? Does it add to some critical chance ?

 

No notable difference after responses here and other forums.

It will help you with saving time on missions, and the critical extra is not worth going after certain crafting jobs just because it matches the boost. To much micro management and sending craft materials over mail. Not worth it.

 

3 - Slicing is something I put only on my smuggler, with my 8 characters , i cover all the logical placements of a trio of craft skills. But with the slicer, what in the world can I have on that as 2 secondary crafting? Mainly this craft char is meant to just earn money.

 

 

4 - Any good craft spots ? secrets? guides , information I should know ?

 

5 - Anyone know about the deflect , if it sends damage back and If one can boost it ? I dont see it harming enemies. (as it should when a laser flies back)

 

6 - Can one group pvp in anyway? just would make it fun meeting a group of the enemy faction and do a little war XD

1. I don't understand the question. When you crush something with RE, you have a chance of getting a critical. Green to blue, blue to purple. If you crit, it will give a message. http://www.swtor.com/community/showthread.php?t=45866 for more information.

 

2. The bonus of +10 is relative to the time it takes to perform the crafting/mission. It reduces it by a porportion tha tI am sure is answered elsewhere...but I don't know offhand.

 

3. Slicing is a secondary profession. If you look in your codex, you can see what it pairs best with. If you're looking for just making money, check this thread out: http://www.swtor.com/community/showthread.php?t=132015. That will give you a list of skills best for your class, and it's helpful.

 

4. Be careful about how quickly you burn out your funds while sending companions on missions :). Unfortunately, guides are not terribly common yet. They will eventually show up.

1. I don't know if anybody has actually done a test but it must be true. Why do I say must? Because pretty much everyone says they are much more likely to get a schem from REing a stack of 5 or 10 or 20 as opposed to just 1 item. If it only checked once for the entire stack then this would not be true.

1) No idea. I think it must, because I get the same number of criticals when doing 5, separating out 1 at a time as I do a stack of 5. I have tested this 42 times so far, so by no means definitive yet, as crits vary in frequency. However, it's looking to me as each item in the stack is getting a crit check.

 

2) and 3). The long answer is in the sticky- choosing your professions. Money makers and what goes with what, and what they mean. Short answer- take 2 mission running skills with your slicing. That said, on my slicer I also took bioanalysis and scavenging, since many mobs can be harvested as one or the other. Also, those gathering items sell, and missions can be run in both.
