what is the best use for all the omega particles everyone is grabbing up during the anniversary event? is it crafting, or would a better use be to sell them on the exchange and then buy what you want?

They also give x4 chance for a rarity upgrade, which will greatly reduce the costs of reaching Epic rarity.
If you have the time, farm as many as possible. You should be able to create them beyond the event, all you need are the
traces. Getting and using upgrades outside this event usually involves a lot of other farming, plus large amounts of EC and Dil.
One tipp: Personally I wouldn't use them on low MK/rarity stuff with random mods. Random mods usually mean you need several attempts to get something you like/want, and you will discard/sell the rest. Therefore you might waste some of these.

I'm only doing the daily collection and any opportune chances to collect the traces, so i may have enough for one or two upgrades per toon when all is said and done. Therefore i will have to use them only where I can obtain an upgrade with long-term viability. Am I correct in my assumptions?

But only upgrading items that have long-term viability is the smart way to use any kind of upgrades, not only Omegas.
More possibilities would be:
- The most expensive items to upgrade are Reputation Set Items. The 4x rarity upgrade chance might help with reducing that.
- You could also use them on weapons, but I would suggest to limit it either on UR weapons, or weapons with fixed mods.
This way you negate the possibility of undesirable mods.
- The upgrades are account bound. You could send them all to your Main toon(s) instead of spreading them accross all of them.
A farm toon doesn't need any upgraded items.
These suggestions are just my personal view. In the end you have to decide for yourself what the best use is.
