as the title asks... i kinda stockpiled a whole bunch of greens and blues (drops from mobs/chests), a whole bank vault full of them... and i haven't managed to learn a single orange from any of them!

Basically Zoeller misrepresented the whole thing. When he said "reverse engineer anything to get an orange" he actually meant "Reverse engineer any of the hideous new 1.2 campaign armors to get an orange, not even the black hole armors that use the exact same skin can be RE'd."

Frustrating I know. Was looking forward to getting my trooper in an orange version of the heavy chestguard from low levels.

That was like 50% of what I was excited for.

I accumulated a ton of orange gear from random world drops. And I cannot RE them

NM misread the post above me. So you can't RE any orange gear other than the ugly end game stuff? What is the point of that?

I thought they were trying to make it so there was more diversity in armor and appearance. This will not help that. Am I wrong for having this impression? I guess there are a few sets that you get orange schems for from the trainer but that isn't much.

This is extremely disappointing if this is the case. The no ranked WZ is a bummer, I can deal. However the crafting changes were what I was most looking forward to in 1.2. I hope BW reconsiders this or patches if its not working as intended. Otherwise this seems like a lot of hype for very little.

Hello everyone - if you can obtain a schematic through reverse engineering, you'll see a tooltip that indicates that research is available. If you see "No Research Available" on the tooltip, reverse engineering that item won't grant a schematic. Hope this clears things up a little!

thanks! that sucks.

people wanted variety. I have been saving up tons of world drops I intended to RE (TH corpsmans set for BH- the only good looking gear)

guess that aint happening.

Where exactly is this tooltip? I've been unable to find one when starting the RE process...

You need to run Underworld Trading and other similar missions for the new low level custom schematics.
