Endgame Color Crystals post 1.2 and how to obtain them!

Hey everyone, color crystals in SWTOR are popular vanity items ever since the game’s launch. With the arrival of patch 1.2, we saw the introduction of several new crystal colors (Black-Orange, Black-Purple) as well as upgrades for several existing colors to their endgame stats (+41 crit/power/endurance/expertise).

Unfortunately, the method to obtain these sometime rare color crystals are poorly documented and there are quite a lot of rumors and speculations. The goal of this guide is to organize all the information that is out there and hopefully bring awareness on the search for some of the more elusive crystals.

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.

Some oddities

  • Cyan (Light-Blue) color crystal with +41 PvE stats can be obtained from Republic Columi level weapons but the Purple color crystal with +41 PvE stats cannot be obtained from the Empire Columi level weapons (you get crystals with +31 stats instead). Exception is one single weapon called Punisher

    on the empire side that have the +41 crit purple crystal.

  • Half of the War Hero weapons (Knight/Warrior & Inquisitor/Consular) have Red (Empire)/Green (Republic) +41 expertise crystals while the other half (Bounty Hunter/Trooper, Smuggler/Agent) have orange +41 expertise crystals.

Anyways, lets start with an image with all the color crystals for easy viewing/drooling!
