Hi guys.
I was wondering if there is a way to increase the chance of bringing rarest item from treasure hunting. I see number is reaching out of 400 but I don't know what that is indicating.

Alos artifice skill only lets me make certain useless items. What should I do to learn making new and useless items?

thanks.

Hilts are far from useless. They raise the level of orange sabers. make green hilts RE them until up unlock the blue version, RE the blue version until you unlock the purple version, win.

The only way to have better chances at critting on a craft is to have a companion with a Artifice or Treasure Hunting critical bonus.

but the only hilts I can make are useless hilts.
How do I make or unlock a skill to make good hilts?

Reverse engineer the appropriate level hilts until you get the blue recipe. Do it on those until you get the purple. Then craft a lightsaber hilt that does FAR more damage than any quest drop at the same level.

That is your skill level out of a max of 400.

Immediately. There is a button in your inventory that switches you to the mode and then you right click to re.

right away, in your inventory there should be an icon in the top right corner, click it and then right click your crafted items to reverse engineer them, you will have a small chance to unlock the schematic for the next level of it, and you will get back some resources from the items as well
