Infamous White Crystal Owner Busted!

The White Crystal Mystery has been solved!


When a forum user by the name of CatchDeathWalker told everyone the white crystal was on live and did indeed exist providing screenshots, the forums exploded.

The poster refused to explain his method in obtaining the crystal and only seemed to care about one thing, the attention. After about 33 pages worth of attention with the only comment’s from the author being bragging rights, when suddenly a Bioware Developer appeared! Only to announce to everyone that:

“We’ve done some investigating and discovered that CatchDeathwalker did not obtain the white crystal through legitimate means in the game. Right now, we’re removing the crystal from his possession, and we’re going to have some more information for you as soon as possible about this situation (but don’t worry, we won’t post any spoilers!).
We apologize for not responding to this thread sooner, but we needed to investigate the issue before commenting.”

I’ll keep the post updated, but note the absence of denial with the white crystal. Maybe it is possible to obtain.

Update at 4:53 EST:Stephen Reid commented in the thread announcing that no white crystal is obtainable at the moment, but one will be in the future.

Unfortunately the actions of the player in question were intentional and deliberate. As well as the item being removed, further action was taken on this player’s account. This was not an ‘easy exploit’, and not something the average player might ‘stumble upon’.

Beyond that, we will not be commenting further – either on the player’s method of obtaining the crystal or actions on their account.

Right now, it is not possible to legitimately obtain a White Lightsaber Crystal in the game through any gameplay method. In the future, it will be possible to legitimately obtain. When that day comes, we’ll let you know so you can go about obtaining the crystal for your characters.

Again, we apologize for not commenting sooner as our investigation was ongoing.
