I just wanted to say that this skill rocks for getting credits. My practice has been to only run missions that are yellow (if available) for lockboxes which return credits. Overall you will make money. My guess is around 15% profit while you skill up. This does not count the multiple missions and schematics that you will acquire along the way. Several of these patterns are very lucrative and easily push its credit value higher.

In my case I have a Level 24 Jedi Knight with Slicing skill of 380 and approaching 100k credits (before selling anything) simply on lockboxes gathered, from missions and the normal level looting. I also have scavenging and bioanalysis. The materials from both are sent to other crafters.

Slicing really is a money making professions. maybe not as lucrative as some crafting professions in the long run but for steady positive income it is great.

I think their plan for Slicing was to give folks who weren't as interested in crafting a way to make money via missions. The skill has been nerfed a couple of times from beta to now but as you say Jacks still has potential for making money (pre nerf folks were ending up with hundreds of thousands to millions of credits before even hitting 50).

I hit skill 400 a few days back and kept running level 6 lockbox missions but was only breaking even. I dropped down to level 5 lockboxes and am making a lot more money since i regularly get medium instead of small lockboxes. I still get skill 340 missions so I am not losing out on that at the lower level.
