My man Skill Up went down the entire Crafting Tree, called it the Biggest Mistake Ever.
TBH just make maxdocs and beak them down you get back more mats than what it takes to make them and supplement it with pop cans. Then get Maxdoc mk1 (green) rinse repeat, then make a ton of maxdoc mk 2 ect. You can mass over 200 of each mat up to purple in like 20 minutes. Once you get Obzo's nose nade poof infinite mats.
