Howdy,

I know we can RE green items (we can make) & discover Blue schematics.
Same for Blue to Purple.
What about Purple to ??? or is Purple the highest we can go with a particular item?

I also heard a rumor about Underworld trading returning schematics...is this the only place those can come from?

Depends on the purple. Someone somewhere has a nice detailed explanation of REing in their sig, and if they happen to post here definitely check it out.

But it basically goes like this (95% sure I'm right).

If you started with a green, the purple will not be REable for anything better (i.e. green -> (tier 1 name) blue -> (tier 2 name) purple.

If you started with a blue, such as the mentalist bracers, it goes blue -> (t1 name purple) -> (tier 2 name) purple

And UT is the only way to get schematics other than the AH as far as I know.\

Edit: N/m, forgot that there are some dropped patterns as well. I think I've gotten one to drop so far

Schematics can come from all mission skills I think. For instance, I have gotten them from UT. My wife has gotten a Biochem one from Diplomacy, and I know for certain they come from investigation too.

The RE guide doesn't seem to specify higher than purple. I've created what I think is the highest I can go, and I'm only lvl 18. It doesn't take long, maybe 30 minutes of RE/crafting back and forth.

Orange is exclusively the realm of Underworld Trading. For the first 100 levels I received nothing, now I receive a schematic (not always useful) every few missions.

Everything you want to know about Reverse Engineering.

In a nutshell: Mods only improve their stats that they start off with. Equippable items can be RE'd to include secondary and tertiary stats and be RE'd multiple times (on the same level) for different variants/combinations of those stats.

Thank you all very much for the information!

I've RE'ed things & created green items which are Exceptional (but no schmataic) & I've made Superior purple. So much to learn!
