SWTOR Masterwork Armor Crafting & Acquisition in Patch 5.10
SWTOR Masterwork Armor Crafting & Acquisition in Patch 5.10.
Note: Everything you see here is still in development and the numbers/materials are not final.
There are currently two methods to acquire Masterwork Armor, the new Tier 5 gear with 258 rating w/set bonus. Crafting (BoE) or acquisition with Masterwork Data Crystals (BoP).
Masterwork Data Crystals (BoP)
This is a slower method but is a steady gear progression system for casual players who don’t have the credits or the desire to participate in Master Mode Gods from the Machine operation.
The Masterwork Data Crystals themselves are BoP. However, you might be able to do the weeklies on multiple characters and then transfer over the mods via legacy.
There are vendors on Ossus that will sell the gear directly for 4 Masterwork Data Crystals each.They also require Hero reputation rank (something to consider if you buying gear via alts).
Here are some of the ways you can acquire Masterwork Data Crystals
- 1 each week from new Weekly Event Missions (i.e. complete 4x Master Mode Flashpoints)
- 1 each week from [WEEKLY] Daily Area: Ossus (i.e. do all the heroic daily missions on Ossus once)
- 500 Unassembled Components per Masterwork Data Crystal for the first exchange of the week, 1000 Unassembled Component for subsequent exchanges (unsure of weekly hardcap) with a vendor on Ossus
- Very rare drop from Command Crates at Command Rank 300
For crafters or those who like acquire gear at a faster rate, you can also purchase schematics from crafting vendors on Ossus. This give you the option to craft the gear directly but you will need some components that comes from Master Mode Gods from the Machine exclusively (they are BoE).
