I'm a level 38 Smuggler with 400 armstech, 400 scavenge and 370 odd investigation...

I've been trying to improve on a blue skill barrel mod at 400 req. armstech (lv 49 item level) and have made like around 15-20 of them, RE'ing every time but still no purple "advanced" version. (main companions affection is around 9k out of 10k)

Is it just a question of keeping on going and hoping? Does my character level affect what im RE'ing? Basically what are the variables of chance involved?

Thanks

(btw i'm perfectly fine if i just need to keep RE'ing, I just wanted to know if there were any significant issues I'm unconsciously encountering?)

The higher end recipes have a lower chance to RE into better versions. Basically you'll have to keep at it until you get lucky with that phantom roll that grants the better version. I'm not sure on the rate someone said they thought it was like a 5% chance on higher end items.

I've done this with 30 chestpieces at level 20-ish, it happens, don't worry.
