Crafting Protoype Moddable gear ???

Hey folks, this question has been bugging me for awhile. I've noticed prototype purple moddable gear for sale on the AH (an example is the rd-13b striker chestguard. purple with full purple mods). these pieces of gear seem to be selling from the same person, 2-4 of them as a time. Is there a way to get the schematics for these? Are they upgrading through RE, or are they getting lucky on RE"ing one found randomly, or are they just farming this stuff, and you can't RE/craft them?

Was hoping to figure out how to craft some of this gear for my alts, but if they are just lucky dogs and finding them randomly i may just bite the bullet.
"I just hit 50 and finished my class storyline, but I still haven't been able to decide which AC to choose. Leveling solo as a warrior wasn't difficult, so I kept putting off the decision.
Anyone else having the same problem? "~ lagerhat - And who says warriors are broke?

if purple with mods they are farming stuff. possibly a planet world boss if several are of the same level range and or name.

also if being crafted there would be a crafter's name on it or a message saying it was removed , erased or what ever the term is.

You don't craft purple moddable gear, you craft purple mods, and orange moddable gear.

I hope this helps.

they are probably doing what I do when I level, save commendations for an artifact lockbox, this provides you with a random prototype piece. I think I've also had one from a purple treasure hunting mission that gave me a purple lockbox to open.
