Core equipment is crafted in your forge, and requires two special items, a core and a piece. You can obtain these things the same way that you find regular crafting materials, with quests, monsters, gathering, combat and chests.

You are required to have researched the required Core Mastery in crafting research to craft core equipment. Core Masteries come in levels 1 to 6, which corresponds to the level of an item you can craft.

How to Craft

Once you have a core, a piece and the matching mastery researched, you can make an item of core equipment. There is a tab in the forge which can bring up all of your cores and pieces.

Cores can be found for each inventory slot. Selecting a core will show the statistics your item would have after crafting. You then select the piece or pieces you wish to combine with your core in the pieces tab. The numbers will update to show the statistics your final item may have every time you add a piece.

Once you have the pieces and the core you want, you can tap the craft button.  Your final item will have all the statistics shown before you crafted it, but will have random percentages from the range you have.  Remember that like relic equipment, core equipment can expire.
