An overview of the new crafting materials and schematics available in SWTOR Patch 2.0.

Crafting Materials

Old Crafting Materials

You can now train all crafting skills to 450, from the previous cap of 400. This means that there are now two new tiers of crafting materials as well. They are Grade 9, which is your regular mats you can get by running crew skill missions, and Grade 10, rare mats mostly found in operations.


  • Grade 6 used to be the max grade of the regular mats you get from running crew skill missions
  • Grade 7 were exotic crafting mats such as Biometric Crystal Alloy and Alien Data Cube.
  • Grade 8 were exotic crafting mats such as Molecular Stabilizers and Synthetic Energy Matrix

Endgame Schematics

  • Highest augment level is 28, whose schematic cannot be learned from the trainer (trainer only goes up to 26). Their schematics are obtained via slicing missions that crit. These augments are designed to fit into Augmentation kit MK-9, which can be learned from the trainer
  • High end gear such Arkanian have mods with the 30 suffix (i.e. Advanced Resolve Armoring 30). These have a 10% chance to learn the schematic on RE. They utilize the new grade 10 mats to craft (4 Exotic Element Equalizer, 1 Mass Manipulation Generator).
  • You can also learn the orange shells of the high end armor by REing them.
  • There is a 20% chance to learn a schematic from REing  a green item. 10% chance to learn a schematic from REing a blue item.

    One dropped from a new 55 FP boss.

    Exotic Element Equalizer**

    is what i was talking about in that post.

    • Cool thanks, added that one πŸ™‚

  • Nate

    what happens when you Re PVP gear?

    • Sorry not sure, havn’t had the chance to play any of the Wzs to get the new pvp gear to RE

  • Mr. Grumpy Face

    No new Armormech Oranges?! (Grumpy Face)

    • No unfortunately. Could be a bug though πŸ™‚

      • Random guy

        I received an Armormech orange recipe from Underworld Trading, if that helps. Don’t remember the name right now, sorry.

  • evenmoarDakka

    Finally new items for artificers!

    • Oh ya, tons of enhancements with alot of good stat combos

  • Aldalok

    Thanks for the info dulfy. I’ve seen corundum powder and need tricopper flux in some of my schematics though and I didn’t see them in the crew skill vendor. Any ideas where you’d get these from? or is it a case that they should be in the CS vendor and we should have missions for them?

    • i was going to guess it is either from missions or the crew skill vendor but they forgot to put it in

      • Aldalok

        Yeah thanks that’s what I though they just plain forgot lol

    • Goon

      All of the flux mats in-game live are currently from scavenging missions only. I am guessing that remains the same.

      • Aldalok

        Nah you could always get fluxes from CS vendor. Always been like that, guess dulfy’s right….they forgot lol.

  • Goon

    Anything for investigation missions?

  • Oncientz

    You’re an animal Dulfy. So much work. Thanks for this!

  • Psychlon

    There is a 20% chance to learn a schematic from REing a green item. 10% chance to learn a schematic from REing a blue item.

    What items are we talking about? Every green & blue item ? So is this the late bloom for something they wanted to introduce/ promised with… 1.2 or so?

    Cheers & thanks for your work Dulfy

    • yes looks like it. The ones you can learn schematics from anyways πŸ™‚

  • Alexander

    From 9 grade Scavenged Metals missions you can get blue material called Hollinium.
    And also MK-8,9 augmentation kits use all grade 9 materials except Augmentation slot component, it’s still grade 6 at open version of PTS at least.

    • Ya I saw that, wonder if it is a bug or intended

  • david2tm

    So, I guess the Underworld’s set mods have suffix 31?!

    Are they REable or it have to be seen (SaV HM)

    • Not sure yet, havn’t had a chance to run any HM Ops yet.

  • Kinshi

    Will any of the new schematics use molecular stabilizers/synthetic energy matrix. Or will they remain only for level 50 gear?

    • None so far I think. That might be a level 50 exclusive

  • enderandrew

    How do the new Green L54 Droid Parts compare the ones you can craft the schematics you buy from daily coms?

    What is the best path for equipping HK and droid companions in 2.0?

    • Jolif

      Looking at the Open PTS (March 22), the droid parts are actually L52; furthermore there is only a “tank” set of droid parts, nothing for a damage dealing droid like HK. Therefore, for HK the best path will probably still be the Assassin Droid parts until you can equip him with the new operation gear.

      Comparing the QT-9/QT-10 L52 droid parts to the Mandalorian Wardroid Series, there is a different stat distribution.

      For the following stats I’m using the estimation that Green->Blue increases the stats by a factor of 1.2, and Blue->Purple increases the stats by a factor of 1.2 again. These values are based on the average stat increases I’ve seen in the armoring pieces. These are conservative estimates for the L52 droid parts, the actual stat values for the purple droid parts could be slightly higher.

      Mandalorian Wardroid Set (DT-12 Core, Motor, Parts, Sensor and DT-13 Core, Motor, Parts)
      Defense Rating: 225
      Shield Rating: 120
      Absorption Rating: 84
      Accuracy Rating: 180
      Aim: 665
      Endurance: 936

      L52 Purple Estimates (QT-9 Core, Motor, Parts, Sensor and QT-10 Core, Motor, Parts)

      Defense Rating: 151
      Shield Rating: 133
      Absorption Rating: 209
      Accuracy Rating: 124
      Aim: 743
      Endurance: 920
      Alacrity Rating: 62

      It looks like the droid parts will end up be roughly comparable to each other with possibly a slight edge given to the new parts based on the changes to the stat curves.

  • Visitor

    Can Player-crafted mods/armorings/enhancements/hilts/barrels be RE’d by other players?

  • Val

    I’m assuming you can also RE PVP gear for Exotic Element Equalizer, correct?

    • Alexander

      Checked on partisan gear, it drops usual molecular stabilizers.

  • Cool Name

    Equalizers are also in the chests and frog boss in TFB instead of stabs.

  • KTap

    Not sure if this was already said or posted somewhere, but I just crit while crafting a Reusable Nano-Infused stim and it got an augment slot.

    I wonder if the new Adrenals or Medpack can also get augment slots? πŸ˜›

    • lol, very interesting. I am guessing you were suppose to get a second stim but instead got the augment slot πŸ˜›

      • KTap

        Hmm small problem. I assume that the augment slot itself is at or above mk-6, but I cannot put a mk-6 level augment into the stim. I also cannot put it into the Item Modification Station to see what level it actually is.

        Hopefully they just messed up the coding somewhere that allows augments to be added to the slot and we will be able to augment the stims once 2.0 goes live πŸ˜‰

        • Biofail

          Sounds like typical Biofail.

          • DaGhostDS

            you also cant wear the stim so it wont change anything to put an augment in it, its a complete different buff.

      • KTap

        Yea the more I think about it, the more that seems to be true… just a pts bug πŸ™

  • are the new MK-9 components? PTS currently show that we need MK-6 components to make MK-9 kits. is that a bug?

  • spond

    As always awesome work Dulfy!! I just noticed, you forgot to change the lvl 55 armorings to 28.

  • Frostbyte

    Man, I hope they add new orange gear for armormech sometime before patch, those synthweaving ones looked pretty good…

  • unknown

    to Help I was with her on a WB kill in Cor one time I won’t give my name but I was ..

    you can still RE other player made item in in armoring modes etc and get the Schematic like now if any one wants to know I have done it on the PTS once they let us a buy the cooper we needed ..

  • Nighthawk

    Since most went straight to the Auto level box, most never noticed. I took a 50 by the crew skill vendor and to be able to go from 401-450, you have to buy Advanced Crew Skill for 10k. Each crew skill you have will cost 10k, so most will pay 3k up front to unlock 401-450.

    • Nighthawk

      That should be 30k

  • Pingback: SW:Tor 2.0 alle Infos! – Loom()

  • Jedimaula

    This is awesome information. One question I had was whether the new grade 10 mats will drop from RE black market gear you acquire with Elite comms? Since its similar to arkanian without set bonus, thought I would ask rather than assume. They wont drop

  • Olos’nah

    Learned the new black-purple tonight. Here’s the mats.

    • Olos’nah

      Also, only got upari crystal back when RE’d

  • Was

    Where do you get Tricooper Flux ??

    • Olos’nah

      Either on the crew skills vendor or through 51-55 scavenging mission

  • idnewton

    At the moment, Reverse Engineer chance on crystals is 20%. So far I have learned:

    Advanced Black-Red Hawkeye Crystal:
    Corundum Powder: 2
    Mytag Crystal: 1
    Red Polychromic Crystal: 2
    Primoridial Artifact Fragment: 2

    Advanced Black-Purple Eviscerating Crystal:
    Corundum Powder: 2
    Mytag Crystal: 1
    Red Polychromic Crystal: 1
    Blue Polychromic Crystal: 1
    Primoridial Artifact Fragment: 2

    It seems that there is no difference in materials between the stat values of the same color. In fact, the only thing that changed at all is the color of the Polychromic crystals. I’ll post any more crystals I gain the schematics too. After all, if that’s black-purple…. what’s normal purple? o.0

    • WalMartSkills

      where do you get the crystals to RE from?

  • Frostbyte

    Hey dulfy, there are new orange armormech schematics now too

    • Yup, I will update this soon with new schematics etc πŸ™‚

      • Frostbyte

        Although when I looked I noticed an absence of footwear in the new set, just head, chest, legs, and gloves. Are they all like that or do you think they will give us shoes later?

  • Draethen

    Question. When you use Synthweaving to RE the endgame gear for the orange shell does that gear carry the set bonus? I’ve seen that the current armorings (campaign and dread) carry the set-bonus and was wondering if that changed in 2.0.

    • Telanis

      No new shells have a set bonus.

  • Kalzeth

    Dufly, late question since the PTS is gone. For UT, Diplomacy, and Scavenging are there new levels of companion gifts or do they still return the same ones from the previous tier?

    • Previous tier companion gifts

      • Kalzeth

        Thanks for the fast reply!

    Viral Residue is listed as a bio grade 9 mat but none of your listed schematics seem to use it, what is it for?

  • Saihavoc

    Dulfy, let say we are still lvl 50 and already have crafting 400, can we advance it to 450 and get those schems WITHOUT going to lvl 55? I have some lvl 50 ALTs, but I’m still progressing with my main toon. I wish those ALTs can support me with crafting.

  • Moon

    Strange, but I don’t see this “Impreccable Medpac (Green)” on my trainer… are they removed?

  • Saihavoc

    Dulfy, can I advance crew skill from 400 to 450 & learn new schems but the lvl remains 50? I wanna concentrate progressing my main toon (lvl55), but I hope my ALTs can support with crew skills. Thank you

  • Sylin

    No love for Investigation on the “Grade 9 Crafting Materials” list? πŸ˜‰ Grade 9 blue researched compound is called Reinforced Transparisteel and Grade 9 purple is Permacrete. Both are needed if you’re crafting those 28 barrels. πŸ™‚

  • seabear

    Where exactly does one get the schematic for a black-red crystal or any other black core crystal? What do you need to RE?

    • David

      From reverse engineering one of that color.

  • New user

    Mass manipulation generator drops from 16 man sm tfb today.

  • I was just wondering if they have put in new color combo’s for the matrix shards for level 55’s?

    • David


  • tomek

    do you know if there is possible to craft an orange armor piece with critical success which gives augmentation slot mark 8 or 9? both critical successes gave me only mk-7 augment on lvl 54 items.

  • Ghaste

    There’s an error – Armormech DOES get a new set of orange schematics – Exceptional Powered Assault, which is a gold/black version of the Tionese/Columi/Rakata armor.

    Its only the Body Armor, Leggings, Helm, Belt and Gauntlets – no boots as of yet.

    Body: 12 Turadium, 10 Mythra, 6 Tricopper flux
    Leggings: 12 Turadium, 10 Mythra, 6 Tricopper flux
    Helmet: 12 Turadium, 10 Mythra, 6 Tricopper flux
    Gauntlets: 10 Turadium, 8 Mythra, 4 Tricopper flux
    Belt: 8 Turadium, 8 Mythra, 4 Tricopper flux

  • Andrew

    Thanks Dulfy. This is awesome.

  • anonymous

    so i have to rip elite armor to get armoring and mod for lvl 55?

  • oklusruv

    I’ve got my cybertech to level 450 and REd armorings 28 to get the advanced (ex: Advanced Force Wielder Armoring 28). Any ideas how to get schematics for level 31 (ex: Advanced Resolve Armoring 31)? Crew skill mentor doesn’t have them. Thanks!

    • RE them from underworld gear

  • Slayer

    What do I RE with Artifice to get the new 55 schematics?
    (As in Advanced Battle Enhancement 30)

    • Enhancements from Underworld/Verpine gear

  • Junto

    Anyone know what the availability of grade 8 crafting mats is like now? More accessible or still rare and somewhat useless? I ask because I’d like to continue crafting mandalorian war droid gear.

    • wookiee

      they are cheap on the GTN and easy to get

  • Darian Erdman

    Any clues as to what the grade 9 color crystals are for yet Dulfy?

  • tyyl

    I am a biochem,when i try to RE lv 55 implants, it says that there is no schem available. So how do i get schems for lvl 55?

    You can also get Exotic Element Equalizers from running the Tactical mission “Czerka Core Meltdown” and “Corporate Labs”

  • Alitariel

    Has anyone figured out what Impeccable Orange Crystal and Impeccable Yellow Crystal are used for? I’ve only ever gotten 2 or 3 of them, but never found a use and no one I ask knows what they’re for either.
