Armormech is the ability to work with hard metals and electronic shielding to construct all types of personal armor.
This Armormech Leveling Guide will show you the fastest and easiest way to level your Armormech Crew Skill from 1 to 550 using the least amount of materials.
The Armormech crew skill creates armor used by the Trooper/Bounty Hunter and Smuggler/Imperial Agent classes. It manufactures Medium and Heavy armor with stats suited to non-Force users (Aim, Cunning, Endurance, and secondary stats).
- Scavenging Crew Skill
- Underworld Trading Crew Skill
To start, visit any Armormech Trainer and learn the Armormech Crew Skill. All of the schematics listed in this guide are available to purchase from the Trainer as you level.
Note: In Game Update 4.1, you can use the Armor Assembly Components you craft at lower levels to craft items at higher levels, thus the exact amount of materials used will vary significantly from player to player. This section of the guide gives an overview of when you should switch to the next item to craft and depends very much on which Armor Assembly Components you have available. If you run out of Armor Assembly Components, craft more as you go (they have a very large difficulty level buffer).
Example: Craft Desh Armor Assembly Component until level 20. Then craft Resistive Armoring 3 until you run out of Desh Armor Assembly Component OR until you hit level 35, then switch back to Desh Armor Assembly Component, craft more Resistive Armoring 3 with what you make until level 35, and then switch entirely to the filler Desh Armor Assembly Component until you reach the next tier (level 60 with Resistive Armoring 5).
Note: Sometimes there is an overlap, in which two different items may both be viable to craft at a certain level. In these cases, it is up to personal preference. Ex: Resistive Armoring 5 and Absorb Augment 5 at level 70 are both possible crafting options. All optimal items in a tier require the same materials (we've listed these at the bottom of each tier).
In Game Update 4.0, companion crafting bonuses are now based on Influence rating with each companion.
