It's highly possible. The champion pvp saber for Imperials is purple, just as the Republic's is cyan. Beyond that though, the republic can only get purple from raids. Probably the same regarding cyan for Imperials.

I picked up a offhand saber from a token I got from the level 50 champion bag. It doesn't have a crystal in it as it just has stats but the blade is purple.

You can make them and yellow crystals much later. And that is what I would like to add to this topic. I have only just at level 16 decided to see what schematics are available later to an artificer. And I find blue, red and green are NOT high end at all. The high end ones are orange and yellow (though you can get both at earlier lvls., as drops).

So what is with that. Strange to make purples elusive, stanger to make the three classics be outdated, when they are the favourites of many.

hehe, well that os up fpr debate elsewhere, though a bit latr seeing as how you could easily get purples in KOTOR and KOTOR 2. I know the latter is Obsidian not Bioware. But one thing I noticed, was that in KOTOR 2 we could get all kinds of variation. I had a sliver one, and we had odd light green available too.

Still though, if purple is only avaiable in PvP seems a but of a jip. I know people who hate PvP, who would like purples. Mind if they republic they can raid if what I am seeing here os right, which would be ok by some, in republic. But the idea a purple, cyan or ornage or yellow is better than a high end red, blue or green still seems odd. Guess what I am saying is I would rather a choice in what colour crystal my high end saber has, if I have gone to the trouble of getting there, or raiding.

Right now, we don't know a single source for Purple... or White... or the Black-Blue or Black-Red (all found in the torhead.com item database). Purple has like 80 crystals. Cyan has 3. White has about 70 as well. Black-Blue and Black-Red are 3 each too. And no known sources.

Red/Blue/Green all start at green-level patterns, crafted up to the end of Artifice. Yellow starts as a blue pattern, but is equal to the primary colours in stat value if you reverse engineer them up to a blue as well.

Orange has as many listed crystals as Red/Blue/Green/Yellow/Purple/White do, but at least has 4 skill 400 Artifice schematics listed.

There is also Magenta, which has 3 schematics, and 3 actual crystals, all at skill 400, but they come from actual schematics to learn.

The highest level crystals, the Advanced (Colour) Intrepidity/Lethal/Resonating, are all +41 to either Power, Critical, or Endurance. And colour doesn't dictate which is stronger. Every known colour has the same highest-end crystal. So, if you like Green, you can get Green with the best stats, just as you can Red, Blue, Orange, Yellow, Magenta, and (presumably), Cyan, White, Purple, Black-Red, and Black-Blue... or any other colour they have hidden on us.

Columi weapons have purple color crystals in them. Rakata have Black-Red color crystals (for Empire at least). These will be bound to your character so you cannot trade or sell them.

Still haven't confirmed any source for the Magenta Adegan Crystal in order to craft the Magenta color crystals, however.

Magenta (In guy terms purple) crystal recipe dropped from Belsavis World Boss two nights ago for us. Unfortunately, we didn't have a 400 Artificer with us to give it to. We killed him the following evening and he didn't drop a recipe at all.

For all the non-believers without a screenshot or whatever go look at the Pax Dominus kill video on YouTube. It has the loot in it.

Black-Red and purple crystals can be found on the Rakata/Tionese/Columi weapons sold in the Imperial Fleet in the NW corner. Think those tokens are Raid only?

Bah, I don't like the idea at all of purple crystals being super high level rare stuff. They should be available somewhere in the teens at the latest. It was also a bad idea to tie stats to color crystals at all, color crystals should be nothing but optics, and what stats they offer should be redistributed to the other types of mods.
