Then travel to Hoth and climb up the highest point. The water will freeze, changing the buff to something like pure ice. Then you go to Ilum and go to a specific point (can't remember where off the top of my head - will have to look it up). The ice summons a spirit/ghost champion, which drops the magenta crystal as loot.
Yes, I know that trick but the problem is, it drops the crafting material to make the actuel crystal, then to the Belsavis world boss, and the boss should drop a schematic for ARTIFACE to make the crystal, and i have synthweaving, as artiface is pretty much useless for me. Im on the server, Sedyn Kyne,as it is a light server, no lag.
