If you haven't already, make sure to report it in the bug forum. Meantime, I'll send along to QA to see if we have it on the list to be fixed. Thanks for heads up.

Happy New Year,


From Master Keith himself. It is bugged

#2 Color crystals schematics that were once acquired by RE of drops require grade 6 materials where all other end game item modifications since this change require higher than grade 6 materials (7, 8 , 9 or 10).

Therefore it is easy enough to separate Color crystals from the rest of item modifications in the database.
sure if crystals were end game items, but they are not. and still fall under the category of item mods. I can assure you that it is merely a bug right now, have gotten confirmation from patch notes, multiple CS reps, and Keith himself. And I choose to believe them over you

OK Keith says it's a bug....It's a bug.

But i am not getting my hopes up that it will be corrected any time soon.

ofc not.

we've gotten lip service on this since 4.0 and I don't expect that to change... ever.

So... its a feature? 3 years out and its still how things are? Why did Kieth say it was a bug then? Seems like they really want to hurt crafters (and thats primarily why I like the game) and make everyone just buy cartel crystals. Very frustrating I would like to get a complete set of color crystal schematics on my artificer that ive had since launch.

Bumped into this while searching for the exact same issue. Any updates on when/if this will get fixed? It would be really nice to be able to learn more schematics through REing.
