Advanced Magenta Crystal

Not many items have managed to pique players’ interest as color crystal modifications that change your weapon’s color. Among the most sought after items are the white crystal dropped by the Alderaan world boss Ulgo Siegebreaker and the recently discovered Magenta crystals. These were mentioned by one of the SWTOR developers, Georg Zoeller, where he said that this crystal is very rare and he gave a small hint about how to obtain it. The community came together and discovered all the steps needed to get the Magenta colored crystals.

You need to have Artifice Crew skill or a friend Artifice that will craft it for you and you need the Magenta Adegan Crystal (which you can obtain by following this guide) and a Schematic dropped by the Belsavis World Boss The Primal Destroyer. He can drop three different schematics that will help you create one of the following:

Step 1. – Tatooine

The first step in obtaining the Magenta Adegan Crystal is to go to Tatooine. You will need to go to the Judland area around the coordinates 335, -1862. You will see these structures scattered all over the desert. In the base of the structure is a “Water Access Panel”. Only some of them can have it (at random). The idea is that these structures collect water and only when they are full can you “harvest” water from them. You will use the Water Access Panel and get a buff called “Refreshed and Sustained”.

The buff you get

Step 2. – Hoth

Your next step is to go to Hoth to freeze that water! You need to climb the highest point on Hoth – Highmount Ridge. It is located at ~ -915, 634. You just climb that mountain until you get to the area of it where you get the debuff “Extreme Altitude”. This will freeze water and provide you with the item Pure Shockfrozen Water.You are done on Hoth.

Climb this mountain all the way to the top

You will enter the “Extreme Altitude” region

At this point you will get the item in your inventory.

Step 3. – Ilum

With the Frozen water in your inventory go to ilum and activate a crystal there. This will summon a level 50 Champion mob that you need 4-6 level 50 people to beat. Once you kill it you will loot the Magenta Adegan Crystal.

Use the Depleted White Adegan Crystal

This summons the Force ghost lvl 50 Champion with 200k HP

Step 4. – Belsavis

Next you will go to Belsavis and farm the World Boss The Primal Destroyer ( X: -452, Y: -3452). He drops the Artifice schematic with which you will be able to create your very own Magenta crystal.

    WoW, how they figured out that you need to freeze the water on top of the mountain in Hooth is above me 🙂 Well done!

    server The Ravager – EU

    kill champ on Ilum several times, but couldn’t loot him 🙁
    what i’m doing wrong?

    • Comment by Cikedo made on January 16, 2012 at 1:58 am

      You’re not really trying to loot him, you’re looting the crystals AROUND him, on the ground.

      • Comment by Czar made on January 16, 2012 at 2:04 am

        There is only one crystal near him, and it summoning a new champ.
        i’ll try once more.

        • Comment by dracul made on January 18, 2012 at 4:09 pm

          Can you kill him more times to get more than one crystal? Has anyone tried this?

          • Comment by Czar made on January 23, 2012 at 10:34 am

            to loot each crystal you must have a cold water. it remove from inventory.

          • Comment by Viva made on January 30, 2012 at 4:03 am

            The crystals are unique. A friend of mine had a problem where he had one in his inventory and when someone traded him another it destroyed one of them. You Can kill the guy more than once if you get the water again, but you wont get your crystal unless you have used the first one already.

    looking for clarification here – if you have cold water in your inventory, you will be guaranteed a crystal? If you are in a group (which you will be) do group loot rules apply (so will it throw up a Need/Greed window and you won’t necessarily win the crystal even if it was in your inventory)? If someone could clarify that would be appreciated.

      @hogger Only the person who has the material (flash frozen Water) in his or her inventory will be able to acquire the crystal. Its not a shared loot item, and the water is replaced with the crystal on pickup.

        hi tdoggg

        thanks very much for the confirmation!

    Just for anyone that is a little confused. Your looking for the buff from the Vaporators not an item. Was used to getting items for things like this in other MMOs and had to do an experiment in order to figure out its the Buff itself that you want.

    • Comment by G9 made on February 21, 2012 at 9:19 am

      Besides color what do these crystals really provide? Blue lvl 50 color crystals all provide better stats than those correct?

      • Comment by JC made on December 26, 2012 at 3:54 pm

        advance color crystals give you +41 stats (endurance , crit, power) the color is a preference, and the magenta is a rare color

    do you need the tatooine buff while ur on hoth to get the shockfrozen water? or is it a you got the buff once u got it til u freeze it kinda thing?

  8. Comment by Wayne made on March 6, 2012 at 1:37 am

    When you get the water on Tatoinne does it show up in your inventory. I have tried several times and I do not see anything in my inventory?

    • Comment by Vorbix made on March 6, 2012 at 9:23 pm

      Nope, the water from Tat is a buff on your buffs bar. But when you turn it into ice, you get an item in your inventory.

  9. Comment by Matthew made on March 26, 2012 at 6:49 pm

    Does anyone know if the Artifice Schematic that drops from the Primal Destroyer is BOP or can I loot & send to my artifice alt… she’s not close to 50 but is artifice 400.

    • Comment by eryk made on March 31, 2012 at 5:10 pm

      no you cannot do that, the recipe is BOP. You can buy it on rep/imp fleeet from a vendor – its 250k. Only till patch 1.2

      • Comment by eryk made on March 31, 2012 at 5:15 pm

        the magenta is obtainable through your artifice trainer. Ive mistaken it with the purple one. sorry

  10. Comment by eryk made on March 31, 2012 at 5:12 pm

    my question is, if I have a magenta crystal( interpidity) already in my gun, can I go and make the quest another time, so I can create another interpidity for my other gun ?
