RE the mod that was ripped out from 246 Set piece or a weapon/off-hand. 100% chance to get a schematic.

You cannot RE an item someone else has crafted.

In one of upcoming updates, drop rates and crate contents will be changed, so analyze if it is better to open crates before or after that happens.
Thanks for this

The only mods and enchancements 246 you can RE, is the ones, that come with the gear.
Eric, Keith... is this as intended? Why would we not be able to RE the individual 246 rated pieces that we gain via CX packs?

This would be one of the only ways to gain the "A" and "B" mods and the non-min/max enhancement schematics aside from PVP (which many of us do NOT like because of unaddressed hacking and other reasons) as the 246 gear drops in CX packs are all unlettered mods and min/max enhancements.

Will you please address this?

Thank you!

One of the only ways... See that itself is a bad argument. Said schematics drop, quite often I might add.

It isn't enough they added a mod drop, unrequested, but you already have to complain about it?! Seriously people, you need to stop complaining about every single thing devs do. I'm pretty sure it will be addressed sooner or later, as it is not an important problem (not a problem at all in my opinion).
Choices matter... I choose not to sub until conquest is fixed...

quickest way to get 246 schematics is definetly the pvp weekly at tier 4 as there are 2-3 schematics that drop from the purple crate. after a few weeks at tier 4 i had almost all mods and enhancements. only barels/hilts were rare drops for me.
from dailies i haven't had any schematics drop so far, only refined isotope (common) and rarely a void matter catalyst.

With the addition that the loose purple mods from the command crates do not appear to be RE-able; I've been getting purple 234 mods of all types -- barrels, hilts, mods, and enhancements -- from tier 1 crates, and all of them have shown 'No Research Available' when I try to RE them.

That is correct mate. You can only RE mods and enhancements that are found in the purple gear that drops from Command Crates. You have to first find the gear and then rip out the mod or enhancements, then you can RE them.

With that in mind, it pays to have multiples of the same class specc'ed differently so that when you are leving up their CXP you get access to the different mods and enhancements that drop for Tank, DPS, Heals, etc. You can then pass them through legacy gear to your character that can then RE them.
