Now I'm seriously worried about whether I've been run afoul of this bug or not. I often run multiple craft and RE schemes at once, and might have actually lost a lot of credits and time thanks to this. I'll immediately take note of all my known recipes, and check them against my next log in.

You can't make up stuff like that.

Thanks to the "excellent patchingwork" from Bioware I lost today;Redoubt Reinforced Armguards(blue);Redoubt Savant Bracers(Blue);Redoubt Synth Assault Belt(Purple);Overkill Synth Assault Handgear(Purple);Critical Assault Handgear(Purple). As far as I know , and I can say for myself that I have a wide experience in MMO's, Bioware is
so far the only firm I know who manages with each patch(remember 1.4) to make the game worse than before. Is there nobody from these guys who followes these forums? Especially because this "bug" is a VERY SERIOUS ONE? Acting as there is nothing wrong ( ignoring tickets,forum) is in my (humble) opinion a slap in the face of the PAYING

This sounds horrible I hope they fix it asap!

Don't think I've been affected by it, but then again I'm not keeping check on my recipes really.

Also cybertech, changed from synthweaving originally; any earpiece schematics I learn are gone at relog.
The armorings and mods seem to be OK but I cant be sure since I don't remember exactly which ones I learned.


You would think that with all the money people are spending on cartel coins to get the stupid throne etc they could hire some more people to address this stuff.

I also changed my crafting proffession and have blue earpiece recipes from RE disappeared
So apparently this only happens to people who switch craft

We finally got an official answer in the german forum:

Finally someone is looking into the matter. Regarding the last post on the german forum concerning "what about
the vanished schematics ?" it is maybe wise to keep this thread alive to keep some pressure on the kettle .
So I am posting my today's list of schematics I had and that disappeared in a galaxy far away ; Redoubt Reinforced Fiber Belt(Blue);Overkill Reinforced Fiber Belt(Blue); Critical Rugged War Waistcord(Blue); Overkill Rugged War Waistcord(Blue). That's all for today. I keep on doing this until a fair solution is given to resolve this mess.

I have been bitten by this bug again today. I had reversed engineered some barrels and the blue recipes did not get lost so I though maybe I would be ok to continue R/E other things. Still on my armstech crafter. I reverse engineered some rifles and got the blue recipe and then began to gather the mats to create a blue one ...

while waiting for my companion to come back from a mission to get the mats my instance queue popped and I went off to run a PUG instance ...

when I returned to my starting point after finishing the instance, I opened up my crafting window to continue with my efforts to create the blue version of the rifle ... but the recipe was now *gone*


the failure of this company to reply to this thread detailing such a serious issue in their own official forums is very poor customer support, plain and simple.

PS. I don't speak German, but I ran their reply through google translation and got the following result shown below . It does not sound very promising. As a software developer my own opinion is they have a poorly written database or data abstration layer. A very similar problem used to happen often back when the game released >> If you created a toon named "Fred" and then deleted it and rerolled it again as "Fred" ... nobody could add "Fred" to their friends list (it actually used to say no such character exists even when it was online at the time) ... because it could not properly index the new character and could only see the first one that had been deleted. They eventually fixed it, but it took them a good long time... I am shelving this armstech toon indefinitely. I do not have the time (and money) to waste on such a pointless exercise.

Hi all,

the suddenly disappearing plans have already been forwarded to the development team, so that as soon as possible can work on a solution for this. Unfortunately, I can not call this time frame in which it will be resolved. First, the exact cause can be identified.

I can understand how frustrating this can be, especially if you just want to pull up a new profession and then discovered the missing recipes for Next Skill. Please have a little patience, however, while we work on the solution. Thank you for this.
Great Warrior? Wahaha! Wars not make one great.

I'm having the same issue. I was Biochem, then Cybertech, but returned to Biochem. Now every reverse engineering schematic I learn disappears from my skill list. Very frustrating considering the time and cost.

Update - I had already submitted a ticket, but I've yet to see a reply.

I've sent a ticket about this more than a week ago, but it's already closed and it happened without any kind of help or response from them. I hope you will have more luck with your own, but I wouldn't hold my hopes up. CS is this game is appauling.
