The white crystal cost about 1.5 million when it was at the vendor, before that it was a beta only drop (so I've been told).

I would love to see the crystals brought back or even given schematics. I (stupidly ) bought the Cyan Critical crystal for my Sorcerer, which I've since switched out for a black/orange power crystal (no more normal colours for me!), but I do miss my Cyan crystal <3

I love my white crystal. I grinded my behind off doing dailies to get enough creds for a +41 power. Cost me 2.5 million. If bioware brings them back, I expect no less of a price tag.
I understand everybody wants the best gear., or even teh best looking. But I am a staunch supporter of having extremely rare and limited items in game. Sure it sucks for the new people that didnt start playing until after something has been released. But at the same time it gives people something unique to work towards.
And they are extremely rare, atleast on my server. I only know 4 people with a white crystal. 1 being myself, 2 are guild mates. And one of the guild mates is a mara, and believe it or not. He duel wields white sabers.

WHY SHOULD I PAY SOMEONE MILLIONS OF CREDIT WHEN THEY BOUGHT IT FOR 200K????

Bio Ware, why can't you do it like mass effect, make it an extremely rare drop and if you play long enough you will get it, like the black widow. Either that or bring it back and sell it for a couple mil to limit the amount of people to get it. I'm just saying it's just not fair discontinuing items, anyone that signs up to play the game now cannot possibly get what they want even if they work real hard at it.

I am by no means rich or well-educated with this game, but I completely agree that the game needs more unique or rare items, just seems like all the high-end items are pretty easy to obtain with a good group/guild or maybe a week grinding. They need to implement some really rare things that are fully tradable for credits to be used on, rather than just money sinks for alts.

well when you are paying good money monthly for this game don't you think you should be able to get what you want? there is literally no benefits for a person if they buy the game now. I think if Bioware is smart they start giving new players rare stuff to balance it out and make all you rich players jealous. Why not, it's only fair.

Sadly I was just too poor to afford the white crystals, BUT I completely agree. So far the only real "rare" rewards are the "your account was active between this timeframe." I see a nice amount of White / Purple on Canderous Ordo though...but like the quoted post said, we need more limited time rewards to make the playerbase feel like they achieved something. (Hell I still have 2 Green-Black crystals from the first game event, never used them yet, but one day when I make a Jedi or my Sith reaches 50 haha....)

I'd like to throw out some examples from the late Star Wars Galaxies: The "Painting" and the yearly anv. paintings / rewards. Rare armors or backpacks (like the Chiss Poacher pack), the first AOE gun (fireworks pistol), the rare bacta tanks, Mandalorian backpacks, Blacksun gear, Sundrider's and all the other named saber crystals, etc.
