PC Tip of the Week:

SWTOR in-game events

1- Gree Event: Dec 8th – 15th

Reputation Spreadsheet (designed by Moxys) Linked here

Gree Xenoanalyst Op – make sure group is 65, because there is no bolster. If you are having some trouble with Xeno, maybe try the other two Event World Bosses. They offer a challenge, but the group will get the bolster that the event area on Ilum does.

2- Life Day: Dec 15th – Jan 5th To get snow-covered parcels you can throw the snowballs at your companions. You can click the debuff off and throw it again.  You can also do the same when you are hit with a snowball. This allows others to throw them and then you can throw them back, provided they do the same.

 

3- Rakghoul Event: Dec 15th – 22nd (Editor’s note: In the podcast Jessie quoted Redna as stating the event was fixed but in fact, she misunderstood. Rakghoul event was broken.  However, Redna clarified that if the tunnels are closed, the world bosses are still there, and when the event comes back, different planet means different world boss with unique items and achievements!)

Buy your relics to prevent the plague, they are Legacy and even after you wear them you can put them in Legacy and use them on another toon

Take our Rakling pets out when fighting the Tunnel Lurker for various achievements

If you don’t like when your toon starts convulsing while infected with the Rakghoul virus as you using vendors, get on your mount. This is a good way to hide that you are contagious, allowing you to infect five people for your achievement.

 

Bounty Contract Event: Dec 22nd – 29th If you just want rep or contracts, I strongly suggest doing the henchmen contracts. They are faster and you do not have to use five contracts to unlock one kingpin contract.
