Synthweaving by itself will be providing you with good base recipes for items. Remember that you can reverse engineer anything you create to get a fraction of it's materials back as well as a chance to discover a more 'advanced' version of the item. You can do this up to 'purple' level-item. (i.e. you take a green item you just crafted, R/E it, and you may learn a blue recipe, craft the blue, R/E it and you may learn the 'top' recipe, purple).
Hope it helps. For the record, I went with Archa & UT and didn't have much of a problem crafting with Synthweaving.
Thank you, I was not aware of the what the colors meant.
Is there a guide to what the colours and prefix's mean?
