I can't RE Campaign Gear o.O

I am 400 Synthweaving.

I have an empty shell of a Campaign Force-Mystic's Lower Robe.

When I activate Reverse Engineering, I hover over it, it says I have a 20% chance to learn a schematic.

I click the item, it says I can't RE that item.

Am I doing something wrong or is this a bug?

Looks like a bug indeed.

Same problem and no one has responded to my ticket yet either.

It's possible it can be RE'd if you put in a lower lvl mod in it, but I'm not sure how that will affect the chances of learning the orange schematic.

If it doesn't have mods in it, it is not RE-able which is dumb.

I could have sworn I specifically read a dev post stating that we'd be able to strip the mods out & RE the shell... and separately be able to RE the mods via artifice (obviously you can't do both because you can't be both synth/armormech AND artifice, but that's not the point)

Pick up some low level mods off the GTN, pop em in, and see if it works?

I remember reading that too but there was a ton of mixups & things getting pulled from 1.2. I believe (and this is my gut from everything that I've read to date) that this is a bug and is not working as intended. You could try doing what the other post stated and load it with a cheap armoring slot and try REing it again as that works on orange pieces but I'd wait personally.

Was told this too. I tried it with orange gear I crafted myself ( not camp gear ) and it doesn't work.

Were you trying to RE a Force-Mystic's Lower Robe as well or another campaign piece?

This is a bug that we're investigating. As theorized above, you can work around this by inserting low level mods. You only need the armoring. The results of RE will be unaffected - I was able to learn the recipe from the specific item mentioned here with nothing but a level 10 green armoring in the shell.
