I damn hope for them to be r/eable. I am boycottin the cartel packs and if they're the only way to obtain the white crystal i am strongly against it. I am going to use my funds I gathered over the past months to purchase and r/e the white crystals from players in order to learn the schematic and distribute it to everyone for super-mega-ultra-low fee (for my standards) of 100k per craft ad make everyone happy on ToFN. NO to the cartel packs!

Almost 3 years old and there are still no iconic / classic / traditional / prequel-style (pick any!) Jedi robes in the game! How come?

Also how about letting players wear the robes that are already in the game but not accessible to them?

They said it wouldn't be removed forever at the time. I want rare/unique stuff too, but at the time my server had about 40 people and you couldn't make money apart from dailies ... I was only able to afford the cheapest white one, so I appreciate the chance to get a couple better ones.

I disapprove of this thread. I want my whites to be exclusive. Hmmph. I was on TV too telanis and I grinded dailies everyday to get mine :P

As long as the drop rate is ultra rare, I'd be fine.

I heard other crystals can be r/ed. If this applies to white then it won't be rare once I get my hands on it >: )

Why cry about this? Most of you that got one did not have to work hard for it. Some of you paid for it and it was expensive but not impossible at all to get. The crystal is purely cosmetic. Are you afraid of losing your imaginary status symbol?

Start crying when real gear that does take hard work to get (like WH or Campaign gear) can be bought with cartel coins.

I have 2 on my marauder. You think obtaining 5mil wasnt hard?? Maybe not for some but it was for me ** shrug**.

Edit: who's crying? I truly do not see that here.

grinding 5m for the two on my sent was harder than gearing up my sent in full black hole/campaign.

Guild Wars 1 never had "Gambling Boxes" in their shop. Only Cosmetic items, expansions, skill/pet unlock packs, and character slots.

On topic: It's nice to see the return of white crystals, however it's cheap tactics. Introduce the white crystal, players want them, take them away, make players go crazy trying to acquire them, later give them a little chance of receiving one if they pay up.

Those are the same tactics Mc Donalds uses for the Mc Rib.
