SWTOR Patch 1.5–HK-51 Companion Droid Quest guide

SWTOR HK-51 guide with detailed walkthroughs on obtaining HK-51, the new companion droid introduced to SWTOR in Patch 1.5.

hk51guide

Navigation

Things to know before starting the quest (i.e. how to prepare)

  • You will need an alt of the opposite faction. It doesn’t have to be high level (Level 15 is ok). This is because one of HK 51’s components is obtained from the other faction’s territory but it is bind on legecy (i.e. you can mail it to your main)
  • The more the merrier. When hunting down HK-51’s components, the more people you have to cover territory, the better. Once a component is unearthed, anyone nearby, regardless of if they are in your party/ops, can loot it. If you scanner detects a component nearby, make sure to call it out so other players can benefit as well!
  • You will need to run two specific flashpoints as part of the quest.
  • Only Coruscant and Dromund Kaas compoents are bound to legacy, rest of the components go straight to your mission tab of your inventory and are bound to that character. So yes, you will need a level 50 character to unlock HK-51 but there might be an option in the future to unlock it for other characters in your legacy.

Fatal Errors (Empire) | The Fatality (Republic) – Heroic 2+

Quest start – Belsavis Section X

New arrives to Section X will be greeted by a droid called G0-A1 (Empire) |  B6-31 (Republic) not far from the ship landing pad. He will hand you a quest called Fatal Errors (Heroic 2+)  for Empire players | The Fatality (Heroic 2+) for Republic players and ask you to track down General Avrun (Empire) | Bren (Republic) out in the Frozen Lake.

fatalerrors

While this quest is labeled as a Heroic 2+, it can be soloed if you are decently geared.

You will need to head to the west portion of Section X and enter a subzone called The Frozen Lake.

fatalerrors2

Talking to General Avrun | Bren will lead you to the middle of map where you enter an instance for the mission. Here is the lore/quest text associated with this part of the mission.

fatalerrors3

At the end of the mission, you will encounter a trio of Dread Forces Leader (champion) and 2x Dread Forces Gunner (strong).

fatalerrors4

Completing Fatal Errors will reward you with the following lore text for Fatality Crash

fatalerrors5fatalerrors6

Theoretika portion– Heroic 2+

Completing Fatal Errors will grant you the next heroic 2+ mission: Directive: Activate Assassination Protocols for Empire players or Assertion: Repairs Required for Republic players.

Here is the quest text associated with it.

activateassassinationprotocols1

You will need to hop back on your shop and travel to the Unknown regions to locate the ship called Theoretika

theoretika

This is a fairly spooky ship…

Deck 4

The first deck you will enter is Deck 4. It is pretty spooky here and there is a little treasure hunt here.. you will need to get an access card off one of the dead bodies and find two data recordings (if you want to do the bonus quest).

First, the dead body. Getting the badge off the dead body will grant you access to the two engineer decks down at the bottom of the map (left and right corner).

Don’t worry if you found a door that needs a security card to access. this door will be unlocked later!

engdeadbody1engdeadbody2

The two datalogs

First one

datalog1datalog2

Second one..

datalog21datalog22

Now.. go to the bottom left and bottom right corners of deck 4, you can now open both doors with your recently acquired engineer ID badge..

engbay

You will find a datalog and an emergency power battery in each..

Right engineer bay

There is also a battery here you can grab but it appears you don’t need it.

battery2

Unlocking Deck 5

To unlock Deck 5, you need to head to the very front of deck 4 and insert the battery into one of the clickable sockets.

socketlocaitonsocketlocation2

This will allow you to power up the terminal nearby and get you access to Deck 5!

Deck 5

Deck 5 entrance is right here..

image

Right inside is datalog 5

datalog5

Go to the right side of deck 5, you will enter a room with some water and a bunch of broken wires below. You will need to run to the end of that room and activate the console to turn power back on with your emergency battery.

bay52bay51

There is a bit of problem after you restored the power, you can’t cross the water anymore since the electricity is flowing through the water! To get back, you need to do a small jump puzzle! 

First, get on top of the ramp

bay53

See those boxes on top of the ramp? You are going to jump on top of it and onto the pipe above it.

bay54

From the pipe, you need to jump onto another pipe that is right across! This jump may take a few tries. Just don’t jump too close to the pipe or your head will hit it and fall down!

bay55

Once you are up on the pipe, jump up and follow the arrows.

bay56

Now, you are going to cross the narrow beam in the middle connecting the two fat platforms. Once you are across, don’t run forward but instead go to the other direction to get on another pipe.

bay58bay57

At the end of the pipe is a container that you can blow up to get past the fence and hop on another pipe. Follow this pipe to the end and you can jump down on a platform to cross the water!

bay59bay510

Now you will see another door open due to the restored power, you can now get to the north side of Deck 5 and gain access to Deck 6! Don’t go there yet!! Look for a dead body along the way.. it will have a security access badge.

deck5securitycard2deck5securitycard1

Deck 4 Security Access Room

Now recall the room in Deck 4 that required a security access badge to enter? Ya, go back to Deck 4 and enter that room..

bay4securityarea

Surprise surprise! Here is datalog 6 and a dead body but you need to get out first (if you die or do /stuck, you will need to wait ~5 minutes for the door to reset to enter that room again).

Immediately to the right of the door is a crate you can click to reveal a control panel.. but you need a fuse to operate it..

bay4securityarea2

The fuse is actually located on the top left corner, in a pile of garbage if you place the door on your back. Here is a map of the location, keep in mind that the map is a bit weird since it places the door to the right.

bay4securityarea4bay4securityarea3

Now you have opened the door, grab the #6 datalog and the medical bay badge!

Deck 5 Medical Bay

Go back to Deck 5, at the bottom left corner is the medical bay

bay5medical

Inside the medical is the final datalog and also empty stim injectors that you can refill with the nylite canisters located around the room. Now you are ready to head to Deck 6!

Deck 6

First order of business, restore power to Deck 6 first by using the Research Lab Power Breaker.

hk-51-_lab_powerbreaker

This will spawn Specimen Gamma 19, which is fairly challenging to solo for undergeared players. Now, remember that Nylite stuff you acquired in the medical bay? It is in your missions items tab in your inventory. Use it on the boss to make it easier to kill!

speciman192speciman19

After you defeated the boss, use the panel and you just completed the Theoretika portion!

7 HK Components

Component #1 (Transistor): Outlaw’s Den in Tatooine.

If you have the legacy perk purchased, you can just port to Outlaw’s Den directly. Otherwise, travel to Outlaw Den and seek out Collector Kezzit, the jawa vendor.Beware this place is free for all PVP so you will be flagged and could get griefed.

jawa2jawa1

He sells two things you need to buy

Burba Seismic Excavator/Scanner for 50k (need it for other components) and Wrapped HK Transistor for 125K (first component of HK-51)

jawa3

Component #2 (Chassis): Taris – Sinking City

At this time, I am not sure if the components are random spawns or spawns in a number of pre-determined locations. You will need to use the Burba Seismic Excavator/Scanner and click it (hotbar it). This will scan within 25m of it and tells you if it find it or not.

Here are some coordinates where people have reported finding the HK-component on Taris.

 tariscomponent

  • -120, –157 (my location marked on the map)
  • 90, –100 (reported location)
  • -51, –142 (second reported location)

Note that once unearthed, it will stay on the ground for 1 minute and allow anyone nearby to click it. Thus it is recommended that everyone work together in the rough area indicated in the map to locate it. Once it disappears, it will reappear in another location.

tariscomponent2

Component #3 (AI Regulator) Coruscant– Jedi Temple

If you are Imperial, you will need to make a Republic alt and level him/her to level 15ish or just have a high level escort you. You will need to head to Jedi Temple and take the elevator up. Again, the location is random and moves after someone found it. Here is where I got my (-2915, 3091)

coruscantcomponent

Note that the component acquired from Coruscant goes straight into your inventory and it is bind to legacy so you can mail it to your main.

Component #4 (Motivator/Arm) Dromund Kaas – Dark Temple Approach

If you are Republic, you will need to make an Imperial character and level him/her to L15 or just have a high level escort you. You will need to head to the Dark Temple Approach. There is no exact coordinate but I got my on –1758, 517. The component moves after one person has found it so just hunt around the rough location on my map.

dkhkcomponent

Note that the component acquired from Dromund Kass goes straight into your inventory and it is bind to legacy so you can mail it to your main.

Component #5 (Power Core) Hoth – Glacial Fissure

Hoth component can be acquired in the NE portion of Glacial Fissure, all around the wreck of Ambria’s Fury. This is one vast area to search and we finally found our component here at the locations 645, –869. Like other components, this one moves once someone unearth it so just search in the general area around the wreck.

hothcomponent

Component #6 (Weapon Component) – False Emperor normal mode

HK-47 will drop the component required.

hk-47component

Component #7 (Loyalty Chip) – Hardmode Maelstrom Prison/Foundry

Foundry: Empire players will need to complete hardmode Foundry. At the end of Foundry, after you defeat Revan, there will be a Loyalty Chip that you can pick it up located right above the chest.

foundrycomponent

After you have all 7 components, you will be asked to return to General Avrun and this will complete the quest!

Lord of Agony– Heroic 2+

You receive this mission after completing Activate Assassination Protocols from Avrun or Repairs Required from Bren. Unlike the previous heroic 2+ missions, this one is actually a heroic mission as you will be facing trios of champion + 2 strongs. A lot of mobs can also heal, making this a bit more challenging than the previous heroic 2+s.

You are on the home stretch though! After you defeat Lord of Agony, you will get to activate HK-51 and watch a nice cinematic!

    OMG, I WANT! :D Thank you Dulfy once again for writing out these guides! I love you!

  • coladria

    awesome job this will totally help me so much

  • torment

    your guides are the best!! <3

  • Magnesium

    Dunno if the ones on like taris have set spawn points but I found one at x: -51, y:-142

  • Maxumus

    Pieces move after being spawned. There was a rumor that you only got 3 tries once you ‘found’ it within 15m but we proved that wrong by trying over a dozen. Once spawned the piece stays about 60seconds and anyone who sees it can loot it then piece will move to another location in the area.

  • kareth

    Dulfy, thanks again for doing a great service to the SWTOR community!

  • Maxumus

    Foundry is currently bugged. When you loot the loyalty chip by the chest after you kill Revan it will update your item count by more than 1. For example I was 5/7 just missing foundry and FE looted the loyalty chip it did not go into my inventory but the red text appeared that I got it and updated my quest to 7/7 though I am not able to proceed

    • http://dulfy.net/ Dulfy

      Hey, I can confirm that I got bugged this way as well. I was 2/7, did HM Foundry, got to 5/7 and then got into the same bug as you and unable to proceed. Maybe we need to do HM foundry last to prevent this bug

    • dipstik

      i had only the kaas, fe and maelstrom ones to get, did maelsyttrom, and gave me 7/7, with 6 components in my inventory and bugged the tracker for it

      • http://dulfy.net/ Dulfy

        Do the FE one once you got the kaas one. It might progress your tracker. It did for us at least.

  • disptik

    • dipstik

      that was taris
      on coruscant foudn one at -2957,2874

      • Agewen

        One note for the peices.. if your republic and using your imperial toon to get a peice, they must buy the scanner for 50k..and vice-versa I would hazard a guess

        • http://dulfy.net/ Dulfy

          You can just mail it to your other faction’s character

  • Jobo

    That was fun doing it with you today, thanks! Here is another screenshot for you:

      • Jobo

        Sounds good! :)

    • Settesh

      How did you guys get round the bug incident we encountered in the Foundry
      It was too late for me to continue last night

      • http://dulfy.net/ Dulfy

        we got all the other parts first and then went to do FE. upon killing HK-47, it give us the weapon component off his body and the quest went from bugged to the next step (I got 2x weapon components, one of them game identified as the loyalty thingie I guess).

  • Ace

    Just a question…once you unlock him, is it fully unlocked on ALL your toons? or do you have to repeat this each time?

    • http://dulfy.net/ Dulfy

      On the PTS, it looks like this is only unlocked for the character you did it on. This might change on live

      • Indy

        you can purchase through cash or cartel coin to unlock him for an entire faction (pub or imp) in the character perks once you have acquired him.

        • WOOKGUILD

          Yeah, it says that, but how to activate it?

      • Indy

        …and to echo comments here, thanks for the awesome site.

  • disptik

    I tried to get the FE component with a different character, but it will only drop for the character that has the companion quest.

    • dipstik

      it turns out i got it in my inventory but i cant mail it

      • http://dulfy.net/ Dulfy

        the only part that is mailable I think it is the coruscant/dromund kaas one since they are Bind to legacy and go to your inventory rather than your mission tab right away

      This quest is kind of tedious and annoying.

  • vpadlo

    Taris -91; -118

  • Elycia

    I thought I saw some reason that you needed 50′s on both sides but now I dont see it.

    Why do you need a 50 (or highlevel at all) for this quest?

    • Alex G

      The False Emperor flashpoint is a lvl 50 flashpoint. Hence needing a lvl 50 on either side. Same with the hard mode Foundry/Maelstrom Prison

    • Jason LaRose

      You only need one 50. You will need another character on the other faction to get the BoL item on their planet capital, but you can get it at significantly lower than max level.

  • Yoje

    Do you only get him on one character or is it legacy wide?

    • Pzy

      He said in the comments below, only on 1 char on pts :)

  • Pzy

    What roles does he have? Healer? tank? dps? cba to read through the whole thing to find out :p

  • Slugfest

    Dulfy, in your opinion, can the H+2 be soloed by a campagin geared dps with a black hole or better geared healer companion?

    • http://dulfy.net/ Dulfy

      Should be able to easily. The only H2 that might give you some trouble is the last one since all the mobs come in a group of three and some of them heal. We were also caught offguard since we didn’t expect it to be that tough given how easy the previous H2s were.

    • Werner

      It can be soloed in columi with tionese companion, probably less.

  • Ray

    Wasn’t HK supposed to be a legacy companion and you wouldn’t have the redo the full quest to get him on alts? I ask because it’s starting me over completely on my pub alt and I thought the devs said you would still have to go get him but not do the full quest.

  • Psychlon

    I pulled Gamma 19 back to that area with the liquid filling half the room and killed him from above (as I didn’t have the injector)…. anyway now I know. The “dark room” was funny as was the whole atmosphere on that ship.

  • AshlaBoga

    Does HM False Emperor drop the item or just SM?

    • http://dulfy.net/ Dulfy

      Good question, no one is running HM FE atm on the PTS but I will see what I can find out :D

  • Arthur Borko

    Do you have to do Normal mode to get the Weapon or can you still get it on Hard Mode?

  • laady

    i m republic, yesterday i send the wrapped box to my new char on imp side… lvl him to 7 and went to dromund caas- i was in operation and stand next to the found item if hk 51 – i cant click it- message -you need the scanner- ok time to open the box i thought- i try to open – message – you dont need to do this now- box was still closed-
    it seems there is a min lvl to use the fucking box- today evening i ll send money and jump to tattoine and buy the real scanner.. with tokenjump back and go dying again through dromund… wish luck to me

  • Cran

    Have you figured out how it works with the scanner on the toon that did not start the quest? I.E. if I want to complete the quest wit my imperial character, and logg to my rep to get the piece from the Jedi temple, will he have the scanner in his inventory already or do I have to start the quest with him in the Section X, too?

    • http://dulfy.net/ Dulfy

      Just mail the scanner to your alt, it is tradeable

  • Obibenkenobi

    Did you have to buy a scanner for the rep side aswell?

    • http://dulfy.net/ Dulfy

      Just mail the scanner to your alt, it is tradeable

      • Obibenkenobi

        Thanks your site is the Bomb

    on Theoretika portion– Heroic 2+ it says shop instead of ship just a minor typo but just wanted to tell you.

  • Doc Ropata

    Can anyone comment on whether when you have HK-51 is it possible to send 1 more companion out on crew skills or are you still stuck at the previous number of crew members on crew skills

    • Cthugha

      Nope, max deployable is still 5.

  • Pingback: OotiniCast Episode 49 | OotiniCast | A SWTOR podcast

  • Maxumus

    Just found out on Test center today. Hk-51 has become a legacy companion. Once his quest is completed it unlocks the ability to purchase a character perk for 1million credits unlocking HK on that character. He will join geared in level 51 (armor rating 118 gear) bypassing the quest chain on your alts

  • Obibenkenobi

    Hi is the Burba Seismic Excavator/Scanner bound or can it be sent to the opposite fraction or would the OF have to goto Tat and pick one up

    Can you explain how I get a piece without the Scanner? You say in the guide I don’t have to be high level, but I can’t even get the quest to start the thing at level 33. Tried clicking a piece someone else found and it tells me I need the scanner.

    • http://dulfy.net/ Dulfy

      The character you are doing it on has to be L50 but the alt can be level 10-15ish. Just mail the scanner from your mail to your alt.

      • Pansobak

        Also you can do it without the scanner – you just need someone with scanner aside you. When part is found everybody can take it.

    For the Jumping Puzzle in Theoretika, I found out it was possible to just run through if you’ve got more than 21k Health. As a Jugg Tank with 25k hp, I died once on Specimen 19(didn’t get the Nylite at all as I forgot all about it on both attempts, 2nd attempt took him down by kiting him around the room with vette DPSing him down) and was frustrated it sent me back to the other side of the engineering room where I had to jump again. I tried the jumping puzzle a 2nd time and fell into the ‘electrified’ water by accident, and it was around 4k damage/2 secs. I figured I could prolly run all the way across, and I did survive, with around 4k HP remaining. Just remember to heal yourself immediately once you get across. ;P

    Thanks for the guide, you’re always a great help to the Community!

    • James Cohen

      I’m a Commando healer in black hole gear (rakata implants/earpiece, recruit relics, tionese weapon, BH everything else) with my Tanno Vik (melee tanking companion) in Columi gear, and I didn’t even remember that I had the Nylite stuff. It just wasn’t necessary, the thing hits like a wet noodle.

      • Isubomo

        Yeah, a healer with a tanking companion combo would definitely find it easier or a double DPS team might even take him down quicker. :)

    By the way, has anyone had success soloing the last part(Lord of Agony) of the quest? I still need to do HM Foundry(due to time constraints, can’t log in for a long period of time), and I prolly can get a group easily for the last part, but just curious if you could, cause I would love to try. What’s the best companion combo to go in with? Immortal Jugg here. Thanks!

    • http://dulfy.net/ Dulfy

      You can solo it if you are decently geared. Are you raid geared?

      • Creror

        Battlemaster-geared Defense Guardian with Recruit-geared Healer-Companion here, soloed Lord of Agony with ease. So with raid gear it should be no problem at all.

  • Pansobak

    Thanks a lot for the site and for this guide :-)
    Want to add about “Theoretika portion– Heroic 2+” – it’s not Heroica at all, you can do it oneself like i did it yesterday by my Gunsligner (just all dailies purple mods 50 in orange gear) with a healer companion. There are no mobs (but it’s realy spooky :-)) and only one boss beast – so you do not need group if could not find any.
    And i have a question about other side component – i took one from Coruscant and my quest here is done, can i find now another one for my Mercenary char and mail it to him? I just can go and use excavator in Jedi Temple even if i have no quest for it? Or only one component of each kind is restricted for one char?

    • http://dulfy.net/ Dulfy

      Not sure about that mailing part, maybe someone else knows?

      • Vyndicator

        I mailed the scanner to my imp for the D.K. piece, then mailed the hk-51 item and the scanner back to my main to continue the quest.

        • Pansobak

          When i got a piece on Dromund Kaas with my Emp alt, call my email droid, send the piece to the main char and tried to pick up the piece again i got a message “You have it already”… so need to run another scanning. Or pay 1 mio! Heriocs for HK 51 are good and funny, but scanning is boring…

    • kissakias

      my friend and I when we go to get it, i get it and he didnt cuz his PC crashed and lost the timer to grab it. we go the next day and redo the search and he get it and i get it again (the old one was already clicked for the quest)

  • Cezar

    Since I never did a FP before, I have a question, what exactly I have to do to enter in the Hardmode Maelstrom Prison/Foundry?

    • http://dulfy.net/ Dulfy

      Not sure if it is still required if you can’t enter those HM FPs directly by talking to the guy near the entrance, you may need to pick up a quest from a NPC on the same ship (forgot the name) that asks you to complete normal Boarding Party/Republic equivalent first.

      • Cezar

        Thanks for your answers. :-)

        In my case, I play with a Sith Warrior, so, it’s not exactly like the case DV described, but it’s probably similar, right?

        If I understood right, I need to do a different FP called Taral V first, correct? After I did this FP, will I be able to do the MP directly in a different day (I only have 1-2 hours/day to play) or I will always have to do this Taral V before?

        • Cezar

          I google a little and I believe that I found my answers. For my case, the first FP should be Boarding Party (which I will take in the Fleet), after this one, I will do the Foundry FP.

          So, the “only” problem will be now find a group to do both FPs. :(

          • Cezar

            Only an update. I did the HM Foundry yesterday and it was easier than I thought to enter it.
            I only had to use the Group Finder for this specific HM and voila, a few seconds later and I was in the beginning of the FP. :-)
            It’s not necessary anymore do the Boarding Party as a pre-requisite.

    • D V

      On the Republic side, Maelstrom Prison is part of a mission chain called The Jedi Prisoner, that takes you to the flashpoint Taral V before MP — I understand a similar scenario is the case for Imps, but I haven’t played that myself yet. There is a flashpoint courier droid on the fleet, it’s a level 27 mission, and then you take Interfleet Transport (a shuttle) to the Telos, another ship within the Republic fleet.

    It doesn’t really stay for 1 minute when i found it, more like 30-40 seconds, when I found it on Taris. (Forgot Co-ords sorry)

  • John Rhys

    So mmm.. why is the scanner even for sale for 50k in Outlaws Den? I completed the Theoretika and when I checked my inventory to see what loot I had the scanner was already there. Also another bit of random weirdness happened. When I got to the vendor in the Outlaws Den on Tattoine I realised like a dope that I was actually skint.

    I decided to do the Black Hole Dailys to get some cash so off I went. After the Heroic 4 I quick Travelled back to the outpost to get my rewards and sell my junk items. I was very surprised to find the HK weapon component in my inventory even though I know for certain I only had a couple of medpacs and a crafting recipe in my inventory when I left Tattooine…

    Now I did do False Emperor about 3 or 4 days ago but that was before I even had or knew about the HK quest chain…

    • A D

      Good point. I also ended up with double scanner.

    • Sairr

      Its there so if you mail it to another toon, and forget/delete, you can always buy it again.

  • JL

    Just one correction: The Burba unit is given out automatically now, so you don’t need to buy it.

    I didnt see anywhere you mention how to get the scanner to0 use on DK/Cor to get the legacy bound parts, had to ask a guild lot, some are saying you were suppost to receive it upon collecting teh quest from fleet..

  • Alex

    I have one issue here, I made all the parts quests except the “Loyalty Chip”, which i left it for last, since is hard mode, BUT at the flashpoint entrance dialog scene, instead of choosing hard mode I chose normal. I wanted to abandon the flashpoint, yet accidentaly I abbandoned the HK quest. Now I’m not able to play it again at all. What the heck should I do? Do you have any sugestions? And don’t tell me to contact customer servicde or make game tickets – no luck so far.

    • http://dulfy.net/ Dulfy

      Try talk to the droid in section x or the guy in section x heroic area to see if you can pick it up again

        Yup I tried all that but nothing.

    The most awesome walk-through I have come across. Detailed and specific without being elitist. Very rare to see these days. I have one addition. You mention that you can mail the part from kaas within your legacy (for alliance players). I would like to point out you can mail the excavator/scanner as well. I almost wasted money buying a second one, but decided to see if I could mail it first. Glad I did.

    You can cross the electrified water in the Theoretika if you suck at jump puzzles, although you’ll take some damage. It does not insta-kill you (unless they changed it recently). If you have a speed boost, or a damage shield, you won’t get hurt very much.

What do I need to unluck through legacy so I can mail the scanner and parts back and forth to one another. A mail droid or legay bank? This is where I’m stuck.
    I know noob

    • http://dulfy.net/ Dulfy

      Nothing, you can just mail stuff over normally.

  • Ositvan

    Great guide. Please note, you may want to,warn people NOT to open the legacy HK51box. It only has same items as he is currently wearing. I think it’s only for other robots or to send to legacy HK51 unlocks. Does legacy unlocks have gear? Also, once opened you cannot send to players it’s bind on open.

    • Robert Hindy

      You need to either purchase the scanner from the vendor in the Outlaw’s Den or mail the scanner from the Empire player to the Republic player and then mail it back when you are done. Your Republic player does not need any special mission for this.

    Because the guide doesn’t specify, the last quest takes place on Belsavis. For those who got their quests reset during the parts missions, that is where you’ll need to travel. This was oddly hard to find.

  • Getter

    Might want to mention in this Guide at the start of the Components section, big Warning, that the questline is bugged at the Maelstrom/Foundry piece, #7. Random bug that completely deletes the questline and all progress. *ALL* progress. SWTOR people say it affects roughly 5% of players and is random. So if you’re going to tackle this questline, best to get the Maelstrom/Foundry piece first before you find out if you’re going to lose all the pieces you’ve dug up.

    • Getter

      Or at the very least do not “unwrap” any of the pieces you do dig up so they aren’t technically mission items and deleted when/if the quest bugs out

  • bbq4tw

    Out of curiosity, how much of this quest can be done solo at 55? I don’t have a 55 to try to solo it yet or I would. Just wondering if anyone has tried to solo it at 55 (I’m guessing the flashpoints won’t be able to be soloed at 55).

    • http://dulfy.net/ Dulfy

      Probably all except the flashpoints

      • bbq4tw

        Wow, incredibly fast response! Thanks!

    • Robert Hindy

      I was able to solo the entire thing on my level 55 characters except for the 2 Flashpoints. The three Heroics are easy if you have a healer and interrupt some of their heals.

      Actually, decently geared class with long duration cc is capable of soloing it at 50 with healer companion. Did the job with gunslinger, sniper, sorcerer, sage, mercenary and commando myself. (For Tank classes I’ve unlocked the Treek insteead)

    Just want to warn you guys something about the quests. If you are a subscriber and you don’t purchase the Section X unlock from cartel market, as you can get in Section X because of subscription privilege. Not completing HK-51 activation quest before the subscription ends will reset all the quests back to Theoretika.

    You will probably lose all of the components that you gathered and need to find them all again. Not sure if it is the bug that cause all to disappear when you grab the loyalty chip as the last piece. I returned to this game a week ago and this is a sad news for me.

    There seems to be some werid co-ords floating around for the Dromand Kass HK parts. There is a bug where the players co-ords will not match up with the cursor, this seems to rectify (temporary) if you jump while the map is open. I have mapped out a few of the possible locations that are in and around the area where the two roads are:

    Dromund Kaas – Dark Temple Approach (Motivator/Arm): -1574, 68.
    Most of the locations given by others for this one, are inside the mountain, so I guess Bioware changed the map’s coordinates.

      So i found the arm, but where the hell is the motivator

        Have you tried right clicking the motivator?

    At coruscant i tried the entire area and didnt get anything

  • Xar

    Looked all over the Endar Spire area and still not even a hint on where it is. All I keep getting is no parts detected.

    • writinwater

      Checked through the Endar Spire region for almost 90 minutes.

      In the end, I found it just north (outside, according to the map) of the Endar Spire region, slightly west of the small lake. Basically was walking back and forth in a search pattern which I continued until my position was outside the “described” area, than turned back about 10 meters distant.

      Found the drop at Coruscant smack in the middle of the area, but was walking around it for about 5 minutes due to some strange “measurements”.
