With the release of 4.0 we made a pass at focusing and streamlining Crew Skills and with 4.1 we are continuing this effort. We want crafting to remain an important alternative to Mission and Operation gear. With the release of 4.1 we are releasing an alternative to the KotFE gear. This new tier of gear will be the best craftable gear that does not require exotic crafting materials, and to support this tier, we are introducing a new grade of crafting materials and missions. With this new change, we want Crafting to remain an important alternative means to collecting the most powerful gear in the galaxy whether youre looking to gain an edge in combat, or turning a tidy profit on the Galactic Trade Network.

There are a few terms that we will be using throughout these posts, here are the terms that you will be seeing and what their meaning is:
  • Crafting skill The experience you have built up with a particular Crew Skill
  • Rating The quality of an individual item
  • Grade This refers to one of the 9 levels of Crew Skills; this includes Materials, Schematics, and Missions

Heres a look at some of the broader, system-wide changes we will be implementing with 4.1. We will be going into greater detail for each Crew Skill and Mission in the following sections.
  • Crafting skill increases from 500 to 550
  • Introduces a new Grade, Grade 9
    • New Grade 9 crafting materials for all skills
    • New Grade 9 Schematics
    • New Grade 9 Missions
    • New harvest nodes
  • Color Crystals
    • All crafted Color Crystals have had their level requirement removed
    • Expertise Color Crystals can no longer be crafted, they are now sold directly from the PvP Items Vendor on the Fleet
  • Grade 8 Grade 9 Transition
    • With this update, numerous items that previously required Grade 8 crafting materials will now require Grade 9 crafting materials
    • To help ease the player transition from Grade 8 to Grade 9, we have introduced a new Crew Skill vendor on both fleets that will sell Grade 9 materials for their comparable Grade 8 materials at a 1:1 ratio. *This new vendor is temporary and will be removed with Game Update 4.2 (Chapter XI)
    • Grade 9 Materials have also been added to the Jawa Scrap Vendors.
  • Trainable Rating 208, 216, and 220 Items
    • All existing 208 Rating crafted items are being increased to Artifact (purple) quality
    • Their item rating is being increased from 208 to 212
    • Current stat configurations will remain, but their values will be increased
    • Crafting 212, 216 and 220 items will now require Grade 9 materials. With the item rating increase there will be an additional Grade 9 Artifact Quality material cost for the 212 items
    • These changes are retroactive on current 208 crafted items
    • The crafting skill required to craft these items will remain unchanged
  • Augments - There will be no new augments with 4.1. However existing 200 & 208 rating augments will now be part of Grade 9, as such we will be making the following changes to the existing rating 200 & 208 Augments:
    • All Existing MK-8 and Unassigned Augment Slots will automatically become MK-9 Augment Slots. These are specifically the slots that are created when you use an augment kit on an item.
    • Rating 200 & 208 Augments will now require an MK-9 Augment Slot
    • All Rating 200 & 208 Augments will now require Grade 9 Materials to craft
    • The new MK-9 Augment kit will be sold by the new vendor; they can be purchased for MK-8 Augment Kits
    • The crafting skill required to craft these augments will remain unchanged

    • *All crafted color crystals have had their costs adjusted to the appropriate Grade. Their Slicing material cost has also been replaced with Treasure Hunting materials.

    • White-Purple-Blue

    • In support of the new Relics being craftable we wanted to ensure Relics found in Operations are still superior to crafted and Mission Relics. As such we have changed the stat allocations of Relics found in Operations. The abilities of these Relics remain unchanged, however they now have an additional stat added on to them. DPS & Healing Relics have lost a little bit of endurance to gain Critical Rating, and Tank Relics have lost a little bit of Mastery to gain some Shield Rating.

With the release of 4.0 we unlocked all Crew Skill Missions. While this made it easier for players to run the specific Missions they wanted, it also exposed how redundant and unorganized these Missions were. With 4.1 we made a pass to both simplify and organize these Missions so that you have less Missions, but they are more focused on the things you really need.

For reference in this section, order of result from best to worst:
  • Wealthy
  • Rich
  • Bountiful
  • Abundant
  • Moderate

الخيارات الثنائية أعلى المواقع General Changes:
  • Wealthy, Rich, and Bountiful are the only result of Missions that can provide Artifact (purple) quality crafting materials
  • Prosperous level Missions no longer exist. All existing prosperous Mission Schematics that are currently in players inventories will be converted to Wealthy Schematics with the release of 4.1
  • All non-material specific Missions, such as lockboxes and vendor materials, now have only one result level. For example there are no longer any Moderate or Rich Companion Gift Missions, they are now simply Companion Gift Missions
  • Companion Gift Missions are now only available in Grade 1-5, in order to be consistent with the Companion Gift Ranks. Example, Companion Gifts of Rank 4 are only available from Grade 4 Missions
  • Companion Gift Missions no longer reward Premium (green) Quality. These Missions now reward Protoype (blue) quality, or Artifact (purple) quality on a critical result
  • There are now Moderate, Abundant, Bountiful, or Rich Material Missions for every Grade.
    • Most Mission skills have two Missions, per Grade, per Yield. In the future, we will look to address any instances where there is only one Mission.
  • Mission credit costs have been standardized. Mission costs are now based on the type of Mission and its Grade.
  • Missions will now progress in the following order as the skill is improved:
    • Moderate
    • Vendor Materials
    • Abundant
    • Companion Gifts
    • Bountiful
    • Lockboxes / Color Crystals
    • Rich
    • Wealthy
  • To accommodate these changes, a number of Missions have been moved between different Grades. A small amount of Missions have been removed altogether, but we will look to reintroduce them in the future
