1.) Increase the slicing mat payout from Underworld Smuggler missions significantly. At least 3x current.
2.) Allow smugglers to "breakdown" armor and weapons that have been sliced previously to get mats. This would be useful for gear that is broken beyond repair.
3.) Remove Slicing Mats from BH missions. They're lucrative enough.
4.) Improve smuggler's combat abilities to make the PVP missions more fun and competitive against master bounty hunters.
a.) Reckless shot needs to have a much higher damage modifier, considering the debuff it places.
b.) Low Blow and overwhelming shot need to either be re-worked or buffed considerably. Right now they are lackluster and worse versions of CM debuffs.
c.) Make all smuggler abilities open to melee. The pistol/TK pre-reqs are extremely limiting, and melee smuggler would add a fun new element to it. It will not be a balance issue because smuggler
Right now the best way to get slicing mats is to not be a smuggler. BH get way more slicing mats from BH missions, which are also faster and generate more credits.
Make slicing a valuable service again
I have always fought for all skill trees to be viable and fun to play. Giving smugglers more control over slicing and collecting the mats will help increase the representation of smugglers in the active population.
