I like phasers and quantums. I do not feel tetryon, Antipoloran, etc are "better", they're just an additional tool in the tool box. Each performs a role.
So why can't I find crafted/badge purchased Mk VIII/X blue phasers/quantums?
I'm a tier 3 crafter, I want to be able to take any Mk VIII weapon and make it a blue +2% crit +20 crit dmg one, just like I can do plasma at iv/vi and tetryon at viii. Make it a template ability, where any common mk viii weapon you start with can be upgraded the same way.
That would make crafting a *LOT* more useful and give us a *LOT* more variation in our weapon choices.
