    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. NOTE: You cannot get progress towards sampling collections while using this tool.

    Resource Recyclers

    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.


    Entertainer inspiration buffs are highly recommended and will assist in resource gathering, quality of crafts, and extraction of resources.

    Resource Quality

    • A 10pt Ent can give a 2% resource quality boost and a 17+pt Ent (Musician xx4x) can give a 4% resource quality boost

    Factory Speed

    • 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

    Hand Sampling

    • Yields an extra 10% of resource when hand sampling

    Harvest Faire

    • If you receive the buff before dropping your harvester it will yield +5% resource until you pick up the harvester, even if changing resource
    • Results do not appear this buff is working correctly

    Crafting Assembly

    • Adds +5 assembly stat while crafting primarily for repairs

    Opportune Chance

    • Can add up to an additional +100 opportune chance to your character

    Craft Suits
