Rakghoul Outbreak to be Contained by the 24th

Published by under community news on Apr. 18. 2012.

That’s right folks, the Republic Containment Officers are working hard an expect to have the Rakghoul infestation to be contained by the 24th, specifically on the 24th by 2AM CDT (12AM PDT/3AM EDT/8AM BST/9AM CEST/5PM AEST). Make sure to avoid Tatooinee (or the fleet) at all costs until then to help prevent the spread of these horrible monstrosities around the universe!


Unless you are the brave sort, then you will have until the 24th to gather all the Rakghoul DNA they can in order to buy any of the special event items being offered, and to gather the special Republic Containment Officer gear. It seems like new dailies are available each day for those who are participating, so make sure to complete them all each day in order to unlock new ones for the next day!

In-Game Event: Rakghouls on Tatooine

Published by under Breaking News,community news on Apr. 15. 2012.

Anyone visiting the fleet today should hear a little message about how there is a planetary alert on Tatooine. Rakghouls have been spotted on the planet and citizens are recommended to stay away for the time being, but what is the fun in that?


The announcement is to inform players of the first ever in-game event of SWTOR, occurring on Tatooine. A ship carrying the Rakghoul plague has crashed on Tatooine, releasing a large amount of these monsters north-east of Outpost Therazan.  Players will be able to tackle some new dailies there that reward “Rakghould DNA”, which can then be turned in to vendors in the same area for some event related items. These include black-green color crystals, and infected companion kit that will let you tun a companion into a Rakghoul, and even a Rakghoul mini-pet. There are also some new infected world bosses for player to take down as well. If the fleet announcement is to be believed then there should be new planets added to this event as time goes on.


No word yet on how long this event will be taking place, but keep you eyes on as we bring you all the info as the event progresses.


Edit: Some new info I have discovered since posting this. The world bosses on Tatooine are located at the Sarlacc Pit, in Outlaws Den, and the other is an infected version of Trapjaw which can be found in his same location out in the Dune Sea.


Read the full guide to the event, including how to obtain a Rakghoul mini-pet on our sister site SWTOR Spy.
