So far as I've been levelling through Makeb, I've been sending things to my armourmech, cybertech, artifice and armstech, and as long as they had the requisite skill they could RE something for mats, or you get the usual message "insufficient skill".

However, with synth items, I'm finding it's about 50/50 as to whether I can RE items at all. The arrow doesn't change for REing. No pop-over message, I am forced to sell the items, not needed. This seems like a bug particular to synth, because as noted before, the other crew skills all seem fine.

Anyone else got a similar problem?

I am having the same issue..it seems the only thing I can RE are items I actually craft myself...not sure if that is intended or indeed a bug..

I'm seeing this as well. I had a full bank tab of 51+ items and was only able to RE a few of them. When I click the RE toggle and hold my mouse over the item there is just a blank space where the RE text usually is. I'll try to get a picture of this later tonight. I'm surprised this hasn't had more attention to it as it is an obvious bug. Is it only affecting a small amount of people and I am just one of the unlucky ones?

I only have this problem on Willpower items. The Strength ones I've been able to RE normally.

Hi there folks,

This thread mentions a couple of things, and I want to get some clarification about what our Synthweavers are experiencing. Is the tooltip mentioning that you need a different Crew Skill to Reverse Engineer, or is the info blank on each piece that you're having trouble with? Can you give some specific item names, please?

As a side note, the "Insufficient Skill" issue was fixed with Game Update 2.1, so please be sure to mention if you are seeing this still!

Thanks in advance for your information, and we'll try to get to the bottom of it and get you and update on a fix ASAP.

The pieces of armor with willpower appear darkened when RE mode is active, like any other item that can't be reverse engineered. From the top of my mind, I think this only happens to gear dropped on Makeb. I guess the one crafted by me can be RE.
I can't remember what the hover tooltip says but I'll update this thread once I get home.

Here are some screenshots of what I see. It does seem to be an issue with willpower items for me as well and they are all from Makeb.

That's exactly what I was going to post to give more info about this issue.

Amber, as I told on Twitter, and the pictures above show as well, some items that require level 49 and 50 have this issue as well. I don't remember if drops from Flashpoints are in the same state.

Thank you Community and AmberGreen for this topic I have a Synthweaver who is at 410 Synthweaving and has been since the first day of RotHC. However, when I sent items to my Synthweaver who was only level 20 but maxed out on Synthweaving (400 at the time), I couldn't RE items my 50's were getting from Makeb.

I assumed it was because the new items require that you also were level 50 to reverse anything from Makeb. So I began leveling up my Synthweaver who is now in the 30's. I can reverse some items but still have a stockpile of items waiting to be RE'd as I get exactly what these folks are getting. No info in the tooltip, hmm, must need more levels, pressing on

I'm judging from the information here, it's something that shouldn't be happening, Great to see it is being addressed! With this thread I at least know it's not because I'm under-leveled

Still going to level up my Synthweaver though. Infiltrate Shadow and having fun.

Thanks all for reporting this issue I was gonna wait till I hit 50 and see if it still happened to me, then report it,
but this thread clears the air on my questions
