General Information


Naming Convention

There are 4 variants of endgame color crystals, each one with a suffix

  • Eviscerating: +41 crit
  • Hawkeye: +41 power
  • Indestructible: +41 endurance
  • War Hero: +41 expertise

Together, the Eviscerating, Hawkeye, and Indestructible crystals are called PvE crystals.

Legacy transfer trick

  • If you have characters on both factions and there is a crystal that is easier to get on one faction, you can use legacy weapons to transfer the crystal over to the other side. Legacy weapons can be obtained from the Grand Acquisitions race event back in Aug 2012 or from the Gree event reputation vendors.

Bloom and No Bloom

Bloom, a graphic setting, plays a huge difference in how the color crystals look in game. With the bloom setting off (w/o Bloom), these color crystals look much like the preview colors. All of the crystals below are taken with Bloom setting on (w/ Bloom) and off (w/o Bloom) so you can see the difference.
