ADVANCED CRAFT GEAR
Below is a compiled list of advanced Crafting
equipment, tools, and otherwise helpful game mechanics that can be used to create the best possible items in the game.
Capped Craft Tools
- Crafting tools will cap at 15.0 and are used to boost the assembly phase base result
Capped Craft Stations
- Crafting stations will cap at 45.0 and are used to boost the assembly phase result
Complete Survey Tool
More of a vanity item, this tool combines all of the resources types into one survey tool and can be purchased from the Imperial or Rebel token vendor
Recyclers take any specific named resource and turn it into a generic resource with a low 200 level quality. Instead of having a specific name, the new resource is called 'Smelted Iron' or 'Low Grade Ore' for example. This is especially useful if a schematic does not need high quality materials so you can simply use a 'generic chemical' resource.
These looted schematics are crafted by artisans and also require other looted subcomponents listed below.
INSPIRATION ENT BUFFS
Entertainer Inspiration Buffs
are highly recommended and will assist in resource gathering, quality of crafts, and extraction of resources.
- A 10pt Ent can give a 2% resource quality boost and a 17+pt Ent (Musician xx4x) can give a 4% resource quality boost (although the text doesn't reflect this)
- Yields a +25% decrease in item creation time in factories while the character is logged in
Amazing Success Chance
- Gives a +2% increased chance to have an amazing success experimentation
- Results are inconclusive as to how this buff works exactly or the effectiveness of the buff

- If you receive the buff before dropping your harvester it will yield +5% resource until you pick up the harvester, even if changing resource
