Reverse Engineering

Reverse Engineering is the SWTOR equivalent of WoW disenchanting; it provides very few materials, but it is the way prototype and artifact schematics are discovered. By reverse-engineering premium-quality items (this destroys them), you have a chance of discovering the prototype schematic; RE-ing the prototype items gives a chance of discovering the artifact recipe.

Your chance to get the next level of schematic appears to depend on your (crafting) level vs. the schematic level. At least for armor and weapons, there are three possible blue schematics (critical, redoubt and overkill).

Suggested here: There are 5 chance rates of researching new schematics: Very Low (4%), Low (8%), Medium (10%), High (16%) and Very High (20%)

I picked up Cybertech. Will probably stick with scavenging and go pick up underworld trading. Unless a miracle happens to slicing.

My armormech is 400 if anyone wants stuff made just let me know. BYOM tho. Bring your own mats. I might be able to help with some mats if I have them but I used a lot trying to RE to get better patterns.
