Getting my lackadaisical self in check, it's bandwidth management time once again.

When we last left our hero's Tatooine was experiencing a plague, Class specific quests are on the uptick, GuybrushThreepwood and Trail were bemoaning poor gaming cut scene writing and design features and Jenny100 was mourning Trail's poor mouse. grin

The previous thread can be found Here

There are 3 events they alternate between when they do them:
Rakghoul Plague Outbreak which can be on one of three planets Alderaan (you the know the one the future Empire destroys), Tatooine (where Luke Skywalker will be raised) and Corelia (where Han Solo's ship will be built)

Same quests every time. Foes change to match location. Each planet has a different optional plague world boss requiring a group of up to 16 players to take down.

Relics of the Gree which takes place on Ilum but does have a quest that takes you briefly to other planets.
a Gree ship has landed and the Gree want to watch the other sentient species in combat. Why is never explained. I suspect they plan an invasion and need to see how the Republic and Empire fight before invading. Of course it seems they waited too long and the "Eternal Empire" beat them too it. Citizens of Zakul not first arrogant bunch to give their empire an absurd name like that. Before them the "Infinite Empire" ruled the galaxy until they all buy mysteriously vanished one day.

Bounty Contract Week
Which I never bother with. If I want to do bounties thats what Bounty Hunter class if for.
You travel to different planets taking down increasingly difficult foes. I have a grudge against this event because it puts higher level NPCS in the door way of new characters staring place on Hutta and when they're on the planet a boss you need if you want achievement for killing the stronger foes on the planet doesn't appear.

These events used to run at most once a year, now they're repeated several times. Because one of the companions Dr Lokin requires doing the plague event to get him to join you in Knights of the Fallen Empire. I figured there would be a companion requiring Bounty Week (probably bounty hunter companion Mako, for anyone not a bounty hunter) and some other companion requiring doing Gree event but so far this hasn't happened. Still could happen of course.

According to one of the developers they will talk about what to expect in 2018 in mid February. Of course he declined to talk about summer events or future updates now.

Quest to regain Andronikos was disappointing, you're just told your alliance has taken a prisoner and you go talk to him and its your old friend. On female sith inqusitor he could be your husband in which case there is probably a kissing scene.

I hope the smuggler quest to get Corso and Risha has more to it. Be a long time til I find out though.

After completing Knights of the Eternal Throne I did not automatically get the first quest in the next part of the story called Fractured Alliance. But I knew this time to go to my ship and click on the mission terminal there to get it.

Fractured Alliance is unfinished at this point. So where it ends and what if anything comes next is anybody's guess.

If you did the Dark vs Light Event for which light won, unlockingg Master Ranos, a Chiss Jedi, which is usual as 1) Force sensitive Chiss are area and 2) the Chiss are allied with the Sith Empire so you would expect a force sensative Chiss to become a Sith not a Jedi. When she appears during Knights of the Fallen Empire if your character is from a class that had a Jedi or a Sith companion (or in the case of Jedi Knight both) you can ask her if she has heard of them. She will have heard of them but have no information as to where they currently are. She also doesn't know if any members of the Jedi Council have survived.

There was a later event to gain the Sith companion that was not previously given since the Darkside lost. But I wasn't playing at the time so I lost out. Not that I need another companion.

This week's update:

For subscribers it added a new operation, group play

If you completed KOTFE and KOTTE and let Arcann live he will want to talk to you and will gift you a piece of chest armor. I found the conversation creepy. He's basically coming on to you, regardless of your characters gender which in the main game does not happen. The main game male-female romances only no same gender relationships. I have no idea how anyone of either gender could find him attractive in any sense.

If you are a sith inquisitor Ashara, possible wife for male inquisitor, returns.
If you are an imperial agent Vector, possible husband for female agent, returns.

I don't have inquisitors or agents who have done Knight of the Fallen Empire never mind Knight of the Eternal Throne, they've still got their original companions.

I found youtube videos showing the return of the two companions, with the players taking their lost spouse back and rejecting them options both played out.

In May there's going to be a flashpoint, which will apparently reveal whether Theron is really a traitor or just a deep cover operative. Like all new flashpoints it will presumably ave solo and group modes.

I haven't played it yet but latest update did add the ending of the traitor storyline. Also Jedi Consular companion (possible husband) Lt Felix Iresso is back and Bounty Hunter companion (possible wife) Mako and Smuggler companion (possible wife) Akaavi have become a team of female bounty hunters.

I only played through it on my Sniper and even if only in Story Mode, it was some tough boss fights.
It wasn't as good as I hoped for, but it was an ending, lol.

I hope next story with 6.0 will be better.

I just did it.

The droid just dropped dead on me before I could smack it one more time. I guess Theron shot it.

The ending dialogue forgot somebody. Lana's "the three of us will stand together" speech should have been "the four of us" they forgot Koth. Who should be very upset given what happened to his favorite ship. Now we will never know what was in the locked. sections.

During the last fight I kept shouting "This is for Zakual's crimes against the rest of the galaxy" every time that idiot blamed me for the actions of his leaders. His peaceful and prosperous empire was built by an Emperor who took the rest of the galaxy to war. Then invaded it.

And I wish they'd stop calling the deceased former emperor Valkorian. His real name was Vitiate. Valkorian was just the poor man who got taken over by the spirit of the Sith Emperor.

Found this about who is in the capsules at the end:
Click to reveal..

There are always 3 victims that will be used as fuel for Zildrog:

The first one is based on the choice of either sparing or killing Senya: Nautolan Chela Nayss from a world bombed by Arcann or Zera, former Knight of Zakuul.

The second one is based on the Peacemaker/Dictator choice at the end of KOTFE: Darth Mortis or Indo Zal.

The third victim is based on your choices from the class storyline:
Jedi Knight: Servant One if Lightside or Bela Kiwiiks if Darkside
Jedi Consular: Sophia Farash (Child of the Emperor Ambassador on Voss) if Lightside or Gaden-Ko if Darkside
Trooper: Imperial General Essith (associate of Rakton) if sided with the Republic on Iokath or General Garza if sided with the Empire instead
Smuggler: Nexia Kiril (daughter of Voidwolf) if Lightside or Master Sumalee if Darkside
Sith Warrior: Darth Baras (if he was spared) or Darth Ravage if he was not
Sith Inquisitor: Khem-Val or Darth Zash, depending on whom you put into Mind Prison
Bounty Hunter: Malea Janarus (widow of the former Chancellor) or Lord Vindis (apprentice of Darth Tormen), depending on whom you killed at the end
IA: Shara Jenn (Watcher Two) if you became a double agent or Marcus Trant (Director of SIS who appeared in tie-in novels and comics) if you remained Imperial


I guess next we will see more class companions return. Still some missing.

Returning companions?
One article I found says this:
Jedi knight: Kira Carsen and Lord Scourge July 2018
Sith Warrior: Jaesa Willsam July 2018

Another claims it may only be Jaesa Willsam (and darkside even if she should be lightside which sucks)

It would actually make sense if these 3 rebels joined forces (pun not intended) and you got them back all together,

Still MIA with no return date mentioned:
Jedi Conuslar:
Nadia Grell (possible wife)
Zenith (same voice actor as Theron, I want them in same room having to talk to each other)
Tharan Cedrax

Sith Inquistor:
Khem Val (if you chose him over your master)

Its funny about Zenith because at one time the accomplishment screen indicated there was a hidden one for Zenith giving the impression he was supposed to return a long time ago but that was removed.


Another expansion is supposed to be coming date unknown. Possible end of 2018 or beginning 2019 but not soon either way.

WOW, SWTOR, GW2 and Wildstar all have one thing in common: some segment of the MMORPG community insists they are all dead, while they're all still running and still gaining new content. Even GW1 is still running although it never updated. Which is a same I prefer it over GW2.

Oh SWTOR license runs until 2023 at which point Disney will have to decide whether to extend it or not. Again some people insist they wont. Others says if BiOWARE throws money at them, Disney will renew the license.

My sith warrior is lightside which means he supports the Empire but isn't mindlessly brutal. I presume that effects the mails he get. Since he forgives Scorpio and Theron for betraying him and wasn't unnecessarily nasty to people of Zakual he gets friendly mail.

I read that there is a bug in which some sith warriors who romanced Lana, get mail from Jaesa Willsam threatening to murder them for betraying her. Its a bug because she's still missing in action and isn't supposed to be sending mail until after she comes back in July.

None of my characters romanced Lana or Theron or Koth.
