Hi All

As you may have noticed there is a new event on Tatooine; Anyone visiting the fleet starting from 15/04/12 should hear a 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 (Codex 1-4 can be found in this area). There are some new dailies to tackle 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 as well as a form of treasure hunt for the 5th codex.

Codex 5

To get this codex and a rather cool reward, you have to get a quest that begins in Anchorhead, it requires you to interact with 3 objects within Anchorhead.

First at outside Anchorhead Space Port (1722, -3428) there are 2 flat screen TV's which you can interact with and will launch a cinematic, this will also give you a 10 minute buff named "Informed".

The second location is north of the Space Port at 1797, -3619; there is an escape pod sticking out the side of the building. Interact with and an infected npc will spawn and attack you, from this you will get a second 10 minute buff named "Attacked".

The third location is to the east behind the cantina at 2356, -3684; there is a box of medical supplies which you need to interact with. When you do one of the Soldiers will suddenly turn into a Rakghoul and it will also turn your two 10 minute buffs into a single 1 hour buff named "On The Trail".

You then need to head towards the taxi location at 1830, -3258 interact with the "Containment Operations Console", this will then give you the quest that requires you to find 12 peices of the downed ship that caused the outbreak on Tatooine!

Steph and I teamed up with some fellow Republic players and embarked on the longest tour of Tatooine in search of the 12 peices of the crashed ship! We managed to locate all 12 in about 3 hours. For all those who do wish to traverse the sandy terrain the co-ordinates to the 12 peices are below:

315, 251
1096, 730
1797, 600
1045, -356
739, -920
-500, -400
1200, -1200
733, -2563
-640, -1380
-1400, -500
-2413, -760
-2030, -1900

World Bosses - Codex 6,7 & 8

The world bosses make up codex entried 6 to 8, i am yet to look into these but it seems, 1 is an infected TrapJaw, 1 is near the Sarlac Pit (press the escape pod to spawn a huge Raghoul) the other is in the PVP zone which appears to be a huge Bantha!?

Not sure at the moment on how long this is going to go on for but the fleet announcement suggests that there should be new planets added to this event as time goes on.
