I am trying to learn the schematic of a certain armor, I have purchased like 35 chests that look like the thing I want, but after RE all of them nothing was learned. I was trying to do it it green quality armor.

The armor I want to try and get a custom version of is this:

I would love if you guys tell me what I am doing wrong with RE green armor pieces or if you can tell me how to find the armor shown to learn it. Want that look

The picture is nice, but unless someone out there has every synthweave or force user armor loot drop/quest reward memorized, it might not help much.

One other thing: custom armor is custom armor. Green, "Premium" schematics will never RE to custom. They RE to blue, "Prototype" schematics which, in turn, have a chance to RE to purple, "Artifact" schematics. All with fixed stats, all unable to accept item modifications other than augments (if crafted with a slot or having a slot added with an augmentation kit).

If you know that this piece of armor is Custom (orange) armor that can accept armoring, mods and enhancements, then it is either (a) a loot drop, (b) a reward from a quest or flashpoint, (c) a drop from a planetary commendations box (in which case it would probably be purple and modifiable) or (d) a craftable Custom item obtained as a schematic from Underworld Trading missions, maybe some other Mission skill like Investigation but not sure about that or, as always, the GTN (someone else got it as a mission drop). Each are separate categories, afaik: you won't get a loot drop that is also available when you crit on an UWT mission.

So if you are looking for a green schematic that will RE to a custom item -- it ain't gonna happen. If it is a custom item and you can get the name of it, someone here might be able to tell you its source.
