Where is the explanation behind these : green-black core , blue-black core, yellow-black core sabers.

They have no place in Star Wars, ITs calle LIGHTSABER - LIGHT

Grats on trying to reward players with lorelol items that have no place in Star Wars

The blacksaber was part of EU lore prior to SWTOR adding one in.

Lightsabers are not lasers, they're made of plasma, which is not the same thing at all.

I don't remember where I read about the color crystals, but I vaguely remember they said they were going to try to implement colors that have been known to exist in the known Star Wars universe (comics, books, movies). If that is the case, then these crystals with the black cores would be viable.

Here is a list of the known colors from the Star Wars Wiki page: http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Lightsaber_crystal.

(Edit: Changed the name of the Wiki realized it was Star Wars Wiki, and not Wookiepedia)
