Armstech is the ability to work with hard metals, alloys and synthetic materials to craft blasters, blaster modifications and melee weapons. Vendor-purchased fluxes are used during the weapon creation process to refine the materials to ensure suitability. Crafted blasters include blaster pistols, blaster rifles, sniper rifles, assault cannons and shot guns. Blaster modifications include blaster barrels. Melee weapons include vibroblades and electrostaves. Armstechs can reverse engineer their crafted items and possibly discover new ways to improve their creation. The gathering skill Scavenging provides crafting resources for Armstech.

Armortech is the ability to work with hard metals, alloys and synthetic materials to construct armor for non-Force users. Vendor-purchased fluxes are used during the armor creation process to refine the materials to ensure suitability. Armormechs can reverse engineer their crafted armor and possibly discover new ways to improve armor creation. The gathering skill Scavenging provides crafting resources for Armormech.

Artifice is the delicate skill of constructing lightsaber modifications, enhancements, generators and focii. Lightsaber modifications include color crystals and hilts that augment a Force user's combat attributes. Color crystals determine beam and bolt color for lightsabers and blasters. Enhancements are modification upgrades for weapons and armor. Artificers can reverse engineer their crafted items and possibly discover new ways to improve their creation. The gathering skill Archaeology provides crafting resources for Artifice.

Biochem is the skill involved in crafting medical supplies, performance-enhancing chemical serums and biological implants. Biochemists can create medpacs to restore health, stimulants (single-use injections) that provide a boost to physical abilities, and biological implants that enhance combat prowess by stimulating neural networks and regulating brain stem functions. Biochemists can reverse engineer their crafted implants and possibly discover new ways to improve implant creation. The gathering skill Bioanalysis provides crafting resources for Biochem.

Cybertech is the skill to assemble droid armor, earpieces, grenades, armoring, mods and miscellaneous gadgets. Armoring and mods are upgrade modifications that augment combat ability. Earpieces are external mini-computers that are worn on or near the ear. They enhance combat prowess by giving audio and visual feedback to the wearer or through direct neural feedback via an external nerve relay. Cybertechs can reverse engineer their crafted items and possibly discover new ways to improve their creation. The gathering skills Scavenging provides crafting resources for Cybertech.

Synthweaving is the process of fabricating synthetic materials out of crystals, various chemicals and artifact fragments to construct armor for Force users. Vendors provide premade solutions, suspensions and composites that are used during the Synthweaving process. Synthweavers can reverse engineer their crafted armor and possibly discover new ways to improve armor creation. The gathering skill Archaeology provides crafting resources for Synthweaving.

Some people will say that cybertech is overpowered, making modificaitons for most of the rest of the gear.

gear comes in 5 colors.
White - basic stuff off the shelf.
Green - gear with a bonus of some kind.
Blue - better than green.
Purple - best of the normal gear.
Orange - crafted or dropped gear that can be modified heavily.

crafted gear can start out as green, as you make it, and break it down you have the possiblity of making the blue versions of the item. Making and breaking down the blue version has the possibility to drop the purple version. Critically succeeding on crafting makes a piece that allows you to put a modification in.

Orange gear can be made, or dropped. It usually has 3 slots that you can put modifications in and make it compatable with the gear of your level.

The Devs have stated that every item design has a orange recipe somewhere in the game. Finding it is the trick. If you find armor you like the look of, you might be able to locate someone that has the recipe for it and make you modifiable armor.

1.. not going there..
2.. see the last post. I do not see that armortech and synthweaving are broken.
3. Orange is the best its able to be changed to make it compatable with armors at your level.
4. Orange armor comes with three armor slots. Armoring, mod, and enhancement.
5.. I think the headgear looks ugly, but that is me.

orange armor comes with a basic armor value. You can put items in to raise it, sometimes a lot.

cybertech can make mods for weapons and armor. simply put armortech and synthweaving cannot make any mods for themselves. Its a big complaint, but not worth repeating here. Synthweaving is the same way. Armortech makes head, chest, leggings, belt, wrist, gloves, and boots. If you can find recipes that give you orange items to make, great, otherwise your going to have to use the armor that you find/buy from what ever source you can. Sorry..

Orange armor is not great unmodified. But you put in an armoring mod and it can beat the normal armor for your level. But its a constant upgrade. You will need a cybertech friend to make new mods for you as your level.

easiest explanation. Normal green armor cannot take a modification at all. An armortech might be able to break it down for parts, but that is about all. Your orange armor comes unmodified unless you spend commendations to get it. Then it has some modifications in it.

The exception to this, if you craft a green and get a critical success, you are able to put in one mod in it. I do not know if orange get that mod slot if you crit or not. None of my characters have gotten an orange recipe.

Orange isn't necessarily better or the best. Orange is different than green, blue, purple.

Orange in SW:TOR means mod-able. So you can keep the same look for 50 levels if you want by simply upgrading the mods. Depending on your current mods a green piece could be better than your orange piece. The level of your orange piece (for base armor) is based n the level of one of your mods (enhancement, maybe, I forget).

Generally you can only mod Orange gear. You can put augments in some crafted greens/blues/purples. These crit when they were made and the crit adds an augment slot.
