Yes, you can RE anything for your crew skill, but most purple schematics learned are not custom, with the exception of armor crafters(syth/armmech). They can RE some moddable purple drops off bosses to try to RE to learn the pattern

Do any custom artifact schematics drop anywhere? (with custom artifact I mean a modify-able purple item). As far as I know, Energized/Exotech(modifiable purple items) schematics and items(for RE) drop off HM FP and raid bosses, but they are for armormechs and sythweavers only (armor crafters). Not for any other crafts...

In particular, I am researching purple Electrostaves and where they come from. modable purple staves are available in game from vendors and drops off Bosses, but you can't craft them. Armstech can craft unmodifiable purples or orange modable. Its says you can RE CAMP or DG, but I ain't trying it... The endgame PvE/PvP vendors have some of those that are purple quality, but its just in name alone. An orange electro staff will be "purple quality" if it has the same purple modifications as the one you compare it to. Make sense?
