Ok, so the pre-order cystal is available at lvl 7, then no more til lvl 47. Come on! Please add some in between. It is very nice that I can get the cool looking crystal, so thank you for that, but 40 levels of no crystals??? Certainly ou don't expect us to use the lvl 7 one with such puny stats on it for that long?

It's possible that they do intend for you to use it.

But Leveling up I don't see it as an issue really. The mods and stats in your other items will more than make up for it if you just want to keep using that color till 47. It's really not a big deal leveling, but I do see where you are coming from so hopefully your issue is resolved but if not at least you have a decent plan B.

You apparently did not read my post. I indeed made acknowledgement of the ability to by another pre-order crystal at a later level. The problem is that that level is 40 levels later.

Er yes, the next available level after level 7 is 47. No crystals for the levels in between, which is the problem.

@OP: While I understand the frustration, I also noticed that crystal stats aren't really all that important during leveling. I used the level 7 crystal until I could use the level 47 resp. level 50 ones. The loss of stats can be compensated though augments or higher quality mods (unless you level in fully augmented purple gear, of course, in which case the stats from the crystal don't need to be compensated because your gear is already overkill).

At least you can use the color if that is something you like (I find it ugly), while my white CM crystal that has been unlocked in collections can't be used by any of my sub 50 characters while every other CM color can be, nor is there a lower stat versions available to use at lower levels.

I would love to see a future patch remove stats (or normalize them) from all color crystals along with the level requirements and just let people use whatever color they want, whenever they want, be it a basic artifice color, a CM color, a special event color, or a Pre-Order color.

I dont think taking away from people that spent real money would go down too well.
Ive suggested before that they should just make every crystal in the game, regardless of where it comes from or how it is obtained, 10/41

I have used that crystal from 7 to 50 on many characters, the stats of color crystal have little to no importance that it doesn't mater. If anything they should just remove the stats from all crystal and just let you use what you want from the get go.
