There isnt as many colors in as many stats openly available because the community is still new, as more people play and more people become top end artificers the market will be more and more full with a rainbow of crystals of varying stats.

Right now its a hassle because the rares are still rare, and not as many people are working on being "professional" crafters yet, they are mostly working on crafting for their own use and their circles of friends/guilds as they build their craft. As time goes on though, youll be able to buy whatever stat you want on whatever color easily.

I wouldn't say the market would be full. The rare schematics will be... rare. As a 400 Artificer I've only trained orange in the way of rare colors from the vendor. All others will have be hunted down. Even then it's a complete lie to say you'll be able to get whatever stat you want on whatever color you want, easily.

I see zero advantage to tying stats to the color of your weapon.

It would be like placing a stat on dyes in other MMOs. It's a terrible idea. It needs to be removed.
Take a moment and think about what you just said.
There are + to stats on my color crystals, making it so I can't change crystals. I would much rather the color crystals be absolutely useless for anything other than changing color so I can change them at will.
Okay, so ignore the stats and use whatever color crystal you want. Bam! You have exactly what you want plus, as bonus, whatever color crystal you choose actually has a stat on it.

Either way, as someone mentioned, all color crystals come with different stats on them. Just get the stats you want on the color you want and the problem is solved.

Yep, that's kinda why he made this thread.

Congratulations.

Yep, that's kinda why they made rare color crystals.

I absolutely agree. I also really wish AC was part of an item mod so my tank could wear what I like instead of a mishmash of gear.

/facepalm

Armoring mods DO change your armor value. You can insert them into any orange (customizable) gear to keep the look you like while upgrading the stats.

I cannot believe the amount of people who gripe on these forums and yet don't even bother to look around and see what's been said already?

This.

I picked up a saber today that had an orange crystal and I wanted red. So what did I do? I asked a low level Artificer in my guild to just make me a red one. I went from a +11 END orange crystal to a +5 Red crystal. 6 End difference is not going to break your character so stop crying.
