If you're familiar with any MMO, you're probably well aware of the "gathering" skills. Just
about any RPG has it. To put it simply, it is the profession that includes the gathering of
materials needed for crafting. Crafting skills can often be a money sink, so try to avoid
wasting materials on them until you've reached a higher level.
Take advantage of those gathering skil s you've acquired by farming for materials. Many
players have found more success from harvesting themselves rather than having their
companions do it for them.

Scavenging and Slicing. Archaeology allows you to locate imbued items like Lightsaber
crystals and even ancient artifacts. With Bioanalysis you col ect genetic materials from
creatures and plants and Scavenging al ows you to recover materials and parts from old or

Check out your local GTN and see what's lacking. Most of the time you'll be able to pick up on
these things while leveling because you'll need them yourself. Once you've found some things
that your server is lacking, you can in turn become the supplier with your current character, or
a secondary (alternate) one.
Implementing these five easy steps into your daily gaming routine should ensure you have the
credits for whatever you may need. Learning to leverage the GTN to your advantage can
