Ok, so Archeology at 401+ now can return grade 9 color crystals called Diaphanous Crystals. Anyone know what these new red/green/blue diaphanous crystals are for? Are there any crafting recipes out there that use them?

My bet's that if BW remains on track with what they've been doing then both the recipes and everything else you need to craft whatever it is they make will drop from the new 55 level HM FPs and OPs. Most likely weapon crystals with more than +41 stats.

This is highly unlikely.

More likely is they "mistakenly" added them in the same way 2.0 brought us all the wonderfully useless crafting materials they've since phased out.

Yeah i find the crystal theory unlikely myself, especially being better than +41 stats. Different/new colors could be a remote possibility mind. However, these new crystals seem to be purposefully added (it is in the patch notes for 2.3) unlike the pointless ones that turn up from seeker droid chests etc, hence me thinking there must be some use for them.

Hopefully we will find an answer soon enough..... or maybe not :P

I highly doubt that. Probably new color dyes.

My biggest gripe with these are they in no way benefit Synthweaving. Scavenging is used by Cybertech, Armormech, and Armstech and all the materials it gathers (Metals, Compounds, and Flux) can be used by all 3 professions. Archaeology is used by Artifice and Synthweaving, and Synthweaving gets no benefit whatsoever, just loses out on more fragments/power crystals.

Don't know what these are for but I saw a few of them around CZ-198. I wasn't on an archeaologist so no clue if they were harvest nodes or not but you could hover over them and get a tooltip just like other interactable objects.

I've mined a few of these now - building up a little pile of each colour.
Got my fingers crossed for a new variation of Red/Green/Blue crystal that can only be crafted.
What I can say without a shadow of doubt is that they will not have better stats than +41. Imagine now if you told everyone in game that the only way to have BIS crystals would be if they were using one of 3 different colours......that will just not happen.

I'd bet money that we're finally getting better craftable dyes soon.

Nothing official from BW? I've gathered a few of these myself so I'm wondering what to do with them.
