SWTOR - Crew Skills: Changes to 4.1


Update 4.0 had already introduced some changes to crew skills, including the disappearance of certain materials and the ability to launch Prolific and Generous missions more easily.

Update 4.1 will also be the occasion for new changes, as Eric tells us on the official forum, with among other things the appearance of a new level of equipment, which does not require exotic materials and a new rank. 9 for each of the crew skills. Here's the full rundown.



Specific terms:

  • Level: experience gained in a crew skill (currently up to 500)
  • Coast: the quality of an object
  • Rank: this refers to the 9 "levels" of a crew skill

 

General changes

  • Crafting skill increased from 500 to 550.
  • New rank, Grade 9, including new materials, new blueprints, new harvesting missions and new harvesting nodes (nodes available in the "public" areas of Fallen Empire).
  • Color crystals: more levels required. Expertise Crystals can no longer be trained, they must be purchased from the PvP vendor (Crystals already learned should not be deleted).
  • Grade 8 - Grade 9 transition: Some items requiring grade 8 materials will require grade 9 materials. To help with this transition, a vendor will be available temporarily (until patch 4.2), offering to trade grades 8 versus 9 grades at 1: 1 ratio.
  • Index equipment 208, 216 and 220:
    • Will become Artifact quality items.
    • Index 208 will change to 212.
    • The statistics will be the same, but will be increased.
    • Manufacturing indexes 208, 216 and 220 will require grade 9 materials.
    • Retroactive changes to currently 208 items.
  • Improvements: No new improvements. The 200 and 208 index upgrades will become grade 9.
    • Retroactive changes to the current ones.
    • The 200 and 208 indexes will require a Type 9 Upgrade Kit.
    • Will require grade 9 materials.
    • Type 9 upgrade kits sold to the new temporary vendor in exchange for the Type 8 Kit.

Harvest missions

4.0 offered all the missions available, 4.1 will organize and simplify them, to have fewer missions but more precisely targeting what you need.

Harvest results according to decreasing degree of quality:

  • Wealthy
  • Rich
  • Bountiful
  • Abundant
  • Moderate

 

  • The Wealthy, Rich, and Bountiful quality missions are the only ones that allow you to collect Artifact quality materials.
  • Prosperous quality missions and replaced by Wealthy.
  • Special items, like equipment boxes or vendor materials, only have one mission level. For example, there will be no more Moderate or Rich Quality Partner Gifts missions, there will only be one.
  • Partner Gift Missions are now only available in Ranks 1 through 5, depending on their quality.
  • There will be missions of different qualities for each rank. For each harvest skill there will be two missions, per grade and per quality.
  • Mission costs will be standardized and based on quality and grade.
