Any Star Wars fan knows that there is nothing cooler than the ability to wield the laser sword known as lightsaber, since wielding a SWTOR lightsaber symbolize a user’s control over the force. Everyone dreams of a chance to have their very own lightsaber and if you can’t have it in real life, having one (or several) in game might suffice.
In SWTOR, you can choose to be either a Jedi or a Sith in order to gain access to the ability to wield a lightsaber. There is a slight difference in appearance between a Jedi lightsaber and a Sith lightsaber. A Jedi lightsaber would come in either green or blue due to the crystal called Adegan, also known as Ilum crystals which the Jedi uses to craft the lightsaber and can be found only in the Crystal cave on Ilum. In contrast, a Sith lightsaber emits red or sometimes purple plasma because of the synthetic crystal within the hilt.
SWTOR Lightsaber crafting will be available though specific details of how it will turn out have not been revealed yet. However there is a video showing a Jedi constructing a lightsaber in a cave followed by a scene where the Jedi is then attacked by a monster.
