Reverse Engineering Pre 1.2 Armor — 9 Comments

  1. So, I have not been able to verify this (primarily because I have neither a synthweaver nor armormech), but apparently if you put an armoring modification item into the orange-quality piece you can suddenly RE the thing. This can apparently be ANY armoring modification, even if it’s the lowest possible level green armoring that you purchased from a vendor on Coruscant or something. The devs have acknowledged on the forums that the inability to RE an orange item for mats (NOT for recipes) is a BUG and they are working on it, but there have been several posts discussing the armoring modification workaround as a temporary solution.

    • Ah that is interesting. I wonder if the amount of mats you get out of the RE is worth the hassle/cost of the armoring (even a low level one).

      • Well, my thought is that it may be worth it for things that use the lower level materials. You still don’t get very much in terms of materials, I suspect, but when you’re crafting multiple pieces in an attempt to crit an augment slot it’s probably much easier to be able to RE them to get back some mats than to travel back out to whatever planet hopefully has sufficient spawns of stupid eralam crystals or whatever.

          • Call me old fashioned, but I would farm that crap up myself too. Ye olde idiots can totally help, but if I needed Bronzium for example, I could get way more for free in less time by just flying Taris and collecting it while I lol at level 17 Elites biting at my glass cannon ankles.

          • See, I just have too many other things to do to babysit the minions running five and ten minutes missions. And I would totally go farm stuff I needed, but I have zero idea which planets have what materials spawns. I suppose I could look it up, but I’m just way too lazy for that.

          • I found a great way to capitalize on the idiots. I was doing work at home yesterday, and had the game running on my laptop. Every few minutes, I would send them out again and get back to work. I may log on this weekend while cleaning the house to do the same.

          • If I intend to read something on the internet, I can send out the idiots while alt tabbed out doing other things. I keep it in windowed (fullscreen windowed) mode and can see the “pending” in the top right corner even wtih a web browser open. Also with the new sound thing you can have background noises on even when it’s minimized, so I can hear the idiots come back and know to send them back out.
