And, no, you do not need a screenshot to prove someone is not lying to you. By reading what he said, you could have understood his misunderstanding. However, if he had said something like "I obtained the schematic for the White Proficient Crystal via Slicing, it requires 320 skill rating." you would have NO good reason to doubt him, as if you were well informed you would know that schematics do sometimes come from slicing, and the rest of the details sound plausible. (By the way, that's an example, not me trying to lie to you, that's not where it comes from, unless I'm lottery lucky.)

If you demand screenshots and proof from people trying to answer your questions, they have every right to tell you to find the answer your own damned self.
Thank you for clearing that up for me. As for the screenshot. I tried screenshoot but all i get is a black picture when putting it in paint or word. And it does not save the files so i dont know why i cannot post it here.

To take a screenshot you need to set the key binding in the options menu, via the key bindings tab at the bottom.

Press the key you bind it to, then you will find it in My Documents > My Games > Star Wars - The Old Republic > Screenshots.

Don't bother with a screenshot for this thread, however. We've resolved what you were talking about, and a screenshot won't be helpful at this point.

Bondor is not a color crystal, its a crafting crystal, you can't put it in your weapon, you use it to craft other things.

THE ONLY, craftable crystals(unless a raid drops a schematic)

ARE

Red
Blue
Green
Yellow
Orange(at level 47, character level)
Magenta(around level 47 Character, with a rare schematic)

Anyone who says any other crystal color is craftable is lieing or mistaken.

This guy knows what he is talking about, level 300 Artificier, 200 Archaelology, 200 Treasure hunting.

A milky white color crystal would be nice for the future though I can just imagine it ^^ would be cool

I'm not so sure he's entirely correct, however. The game is new and there may be things as yet undiscovered.

Search Torhead for "White Resonating"

You will find:

White Resonating Crystal (Premium Quality)
White Resonating Crystal (Prototype Quality)
Advanced White Resonating Crystal (Artifact Quality)
Mastercraft White Resonating Crystal (Artifact Quality)

The naming convention seems to follow standard reverse engineering logic, and the "Mastercraft" in the name reinforces the idea. If you search simply for "White" you will find there are many crystals following this scheme with no known schematics.

It's possible these are drops, but I'd wonder why they made them follow crafting progression. It's possible they are crafting items without methods to earn them in game yet as well. It's just as likely we haven't found the method of learning these schems.

If you search around, you will find other colors he didn't mention that also follow this convention.

I agree.

But I can tell you point and case, that Standard methods won't allow it.

There is no rare schematic at max level in UT or Inves, except the megenta one at Max level.

And the Trainer doesn't give any mpatterns for anything but Orange at max level.

I also know a world boss drops Purple, and white, and cyan.

So despite torhead and DB saying it. I believe it was either taken out in crafting in beta, or its a raid boss at max level.

If thats the case, for the first 50 levels, you can't craft it.

The databases are still largely flawed. They include a lot of duplicate items, as well as items from past beta builds that either no longer exist in the game or exist in a different form.

I don't believe there are any player-made white color crystals in the final build of the game.

This ^^ - no screenshots to prove it - but was present in the zone when one dropped. This may no longer be the case since game is now live.

Folks were "shouting" about it (or rather talking in the general channel). I've also seen screenshots of it being wielded. Irregardless - it was beta; this is live. Any number of things could have changed.
