Artificers Need Some Attention

As an Artifice, I feel as though we are getting neglected for updates. I continue to see drops for almost every other crafter in the game, however, very very rarely do I ever see a new schematic for artifice. None of our hilts and enhancements compare to any top tear gear as I have seen from schematics dropped for other crafters. Now that 1.3 has dropped, the only thing left to make money from is color crystals. However, we are limited to only crafting solid colors. I would like to see artificers be able to get more creative with the color crystals they can craft. Essentially allowing use to craft a blue with red core or orange with green core. The options could be limitless and would truly allow players to customize their look. I would also like to see grade 25-26 hilts/enhancement schematic drops throughout the game. If these drops do exists, I have not seen them, or seen anyone who has them. Please address this neglect to artificers.

I would like it noted though that all that black core crap came from SWTOR I think, and i hate it.

I agree wholeheartedly
Maybe set up crystal crafting so you can choose a core color, glow color, and stat bonus separately. That would be cool even if it was BOP.
Unique relics with cool activated abilities could be awesome as well, even if it was just a vanity effect.

Ok, so maybe blue with red core is a bit over the top, but your list has so many more options than artificers even come close to having. I also think a nice way to implement this would be by having base materials needed for each crystal, then base the end color off of the color and grade of color crystals that are added to it.

No, black core sabers are actually pretty old as far as the extended universe goes, just not common.

I agree, artificers have been neglected to a point where the skill feels almost useless. I want to see more artifice drops in Operations and Hard Modes (something I have yet to see anyway) and more schematics in general! A lot more colour crystals would be cool, but I'd also like more of everything else.

The skill just needs some TLC. As I said, it feels useless as is.

I would also love to see more end game schematics drop- hilts, enhancements.

But what I would love more is to be able to craft the +41 stats (particularly PVE- power/crit/end) of the color crystals that they removed from the game- purple, white, cyan. Supposedly they were adding more color crystals, but I have yet to see craftable versions of purple, white, or cyan since they removed the vendor in 1.2. They could easily add in a bunch more color crystals. I'm hoping they do, but I would like to see a confirmed post rather than "they'll be added sometime."
