do tour the gal.(can't spell) every day
grab all drops to sell on exchange or to vendor
craft items to sell (i'm not very lucky at that)
be patient hopefully by the time you make enough EC the price will drop

To increase drops like cruz said. Try and add a hotkey, for ROLL NEED, and just click it every few seconds, when doing fleet runs or PUGs. Try to bind it to a pinky button, or mouse peripheral.

I find between the endeavors, admiralty and doffing, when done diligently, makes a good amount.

Anytime Morgan! Always great to chat with ya! Oh, and since the admiralty change I'm considering creating Jem toons, getting their reps tp tier 5, cashing in, deleting and repeating... Between maybe 3 or 4 the supply should be acceptable.... till they realize it and find a way to kill that to...

One of the ways I make EC is to process Dil on all my toons everyday, and convert it all to Zen... Not only does it make it easier to pool your Dil this way, but you can also purchase keys with it, and then sell them on the market for EC.

Another way is to craft Plasma Torpedo Launchers and ensure you use a high ranking R&D Doff to make it. This does require an investment to so, such as some Dil and possibly some EC to get a few Catalyst: +50's to help... Obviously an Ultra Rare version will sell for more then a Very Rare, but what you are really hoping for is the Spread Proc version of the launcher. The chance is small, but when you craft one with the Spread proc attached to it, they sell for anywhere between 40 and 50+ million EC each on the Market.

You can also play the market by finding items being sold for really low prices, purchasing them, then turn around and sell them at a higher price (while still undercutting other players)... Obviously this involves an investment, and in some ways is a gamble... But it is another method of increasing your EC...

Another way is running random TFO's, rolling Need on anything that drops (when running with Pickup Groups - PUG's), and anything you win can either be Vendored for EC, broken down for crafting matts (which you could then also sell on the marketplace), or possibly even used as gear for your toon/toons while working on getting better gear from Reputation etc...

If you wish to throw real money at the problem, you can also purchase Zen when it's on-sale, and purchase items from the Zen Store to sell on the Marketplace (such as lockbox keys like I mentioned previously)... I would only ever recommend this method, if you have extra cash to burn and I would always hold out for a sale in order to get the best bang for your buck... Personally I never use this method, but I know plenty of folks over the years that have... You can use this method to trade Zen for processed Dil as well, but I prefer to rely on multiple characters instead (yes that method is slow and cumbersome but it doesn't cost money)...

Some folks open Lockboxes and sell the contents, but the issue with that is your in essence gambling, and there is no guarantee you'll get something that sells for much on the Market. Yes, if your lucky you might make a bunch of EC, but the chances are not in your favor.

Hope that gives you some further insights into making EC...
