They said that it will become craftable at some point, but will be a bit of a treasure hunt comparable to the Magenta Adegan crystal, and will not be obtainable for at least a few months.

Where do you get the white crystals from?
I am eating your canon, and pooping your immersion.

no no.

The vendor that sells it (along with the other rares) will go away. At which point there will not be any way to obtain more in game until some unknown future time where they add them back.

What would be very interesting to know is if the next tiers of raid gear will supercede the 2.5 million credit crystals in stats, if so then they are purely cosmetic options, and potentially not very good options if they're much worse than the next tier ones.

The stats are already lower than the t3 crystals.

There will be no way to obtain white color crystals in Game Update 1.2 or any of the 1.2 series of patches. As for further into the future, it is fair to say that we have not yet made up our minds.

However, should a white color crystal be made available at a later time, you can be certain that the mode of acquiring it will be significantly more involved than going to a vendor. That's a one-time opportunity during patch 1.1.5 that will likely not return for a long, long time.
Annnd whats the rational behind this?

Just Because?

Not popular?

Creating a rare commodity to create exclusivity for players to feel extra special?

I've never understood dev decisions behind something that people like... add options, dont remove them. Just my 2 cents.
