Hi! Thank you for posting such a nice thread, it has answered most of the questions I've had, although there is ONE main question which has been torturing me since I started playing.

I would like to know, do ALL blue items created from crews skills (Synthweaving, Armstech.. etc) have chances to give an artifact recipe? or only a few ones?

I've been browsing through the auction house in order to answer my own question but i've only noticed level 9 artifact crafted items then it went up to 25ish and higher.. Is it possible to create for example a level 17 artifact blaster rifle with armstech? or will prototype (blue) be the highest level it can reach?

And while I'm at it, do all superior items have a chance to raise to prototype? (So far so good, but maybe eventually If i make an additional character and try out a new crew skill this information would be quite good to know)

Thank you!

Does anyone know if you have to already know the tier 2 version to learn the tier 3? For example, if I don't know how to craft the 'overkill' version of something, but I buy one off the GTN, can I RE that and learn one of the the artifact versions?

The way the system works currently, you ought to be able to upgrade any equippable item you can make through the prefix system, except Vibrokives and Shotguns, which are bugged.

I've never heard of this happening, and you'd have to get pretty lucky to get a schematic in one try, but I can't tell you it's not possible, just that I don't think it's likely.

Can the T3 Rakata armor vendor-taught schematics (belt/bracers) for Armormech be RE'd into higher forms?

I've RE'd 8 pieces so far with no results (1 returned a biometric). Obviously 8 is not a big sample size, but it's a start. I still have not managed to crit my bracers yet, so that number will keep going up until I do so.

They definitely can be crit at least then, you did it with your belt?

Yes, I lucked out and crit on my 2nd belt. 9 bracers later, still no crit

3 biometric's left, hopefully I have more luck tonight.

I wish there were a change made by the dev so we don't waste as much time REing stuff only to get "you already know this schematic" notice. The whole point in RE the same base item after you learned a t1/t2 schematic is to learn a new one of the same tier...


UH!!!! I just want my Supremecy stuff man and have wasted plenty O' dollars so far to do it. It is bad enough that the returned materials are VERY, VERY low amounts.... Frustrating....
