As soon as we found out there is a special event on Tattoine I wanted to find out and experience as much of it as I can. I spent all day yesterday on Tatooine uncovering the secrets of the event and Bioware really worked hard to give us some new things to uncover. The thing I like the most about the event is the fact it is enveloped in good old Bioware story. There are announcers at the fleet warning travelers not to travel to Tatooine (of course we all went there right away). Once you get to Tatooine you can watch a TV right outside the starport giving you the latest about the outbreak (and starting a special event/quest that rewards you with a mini Rakghoul pet). Once you get to the source of the contagion you are faced with area quests that further explain what happened and even our old World Boss friend Trapjaw is changed and transformed into an Infected Trapjaw.
Rakghoul Pandemic News Report
I have compiled a guide describing all the most important portions of the events on our sister site SWTOR Spy. You can read the full guide to the Rakghoul Pandemic event including information on:
New Heroic Bosses and their location
Tracking the Origin Quest that rewards the mini-pet
Area Daily quests and Codex entries you can earn
I have video of the two Event World Boss kills we had yesterday with a PUG on Tatooine. I would like to thank the good people of Dune Bantha server that remained vigilant and got organized so we could down these bosses.
As part of our coverage of the newly released Legacy Patch 1.2 we have compiled two high quality guides that are a must read for any Star Wars: The Old republic player. The first guide covers the new flashpoint “Lost Island” with its 7 bosses. We cover tactics for each of the bosses with screenshots and tips on how to defeat them. As most of you know, Bioware decided to increase the difficulty of encounters in newly released flashpoints and operations and we believe a guide like this will help you defeat the bosses without needing to experiment too much. Also, it beats watching pointless videos on youtube with no explanations.
The second guide is about a super cool mini-pet that is not easily obtainable. Bioware decided to introduce another very cool thing that you can obtain by going to several planets, doing unexpected thing. We had the Magenta Crystal before, and now it is the Orokeet mini-pet. You will need to visit both Alderaan and Tatooine to get this little guy and we have compiled a guide with 27 screenshots to help you add this cute fellow to your pet collection. Visit our sister site SWTOR Spy for a full walkthrough to getting the Orokeet mini pet.
Release of the “1.2 – Legacy” patch is imminent. We have less than 12 hours remaining before it hits the live servers (you can read the full announcement here). This patch is one of the biggest patches in the history of MMOs and it will bring a whole lot of changes and improvements to Star Wars: The Old Republic. It is very hard to cover all the changes included in the patch, but we have tried to compile a small list of the most interesting changes you will see once you install the new patch. This has all been put into a form of a guide on our sister site SWTOR Spy and by browsing through various tabs you can see all the changes we discovered while playing the test version of the patch. Our resident Lore junkie, Mr Joshrooms, also posted an article about how the Legacy patch and Star Wars Lore are intertwined. Among our patch 1.2 coverage we have also managed to find out which gifts will your Ship Droids like once the patch is active. Yes, ship droids will now receive gifts and you can increase your affection with them! Check out all the aforementioned features on the links bellow:
