SWTOR Lorta Escort and Hypori Escort space missions guide for SWTOR patch 1.6. Lorta Escort (Empire) and Hypori Escort (Republic) are two new space missions introduced with Patch 1.6 and may require players to have some Grade 7 spaceship parts to complete it.
- Length: 4m 48s
- Bonus: Eliminate the Enemy Frigates (Destroy 4 enemy frigates), Annihilate the Enemy (Destroy 70 enemy fighters)
- Recommended Upgrades: This is pretty much the easiest mission out of the six. Make sure you have Proton Torpedoes as you will need it to complete the mission. Otherwise, just buy the Grade 7 Improved Power Conversion Module from the fleet vendor for 300k and you should be able to complete the mission in a couple tries. If you want to be safe, get all Grade 7 parts as they will allow you to make bigger margins of error.

Video Guide (Lorta Escort)
The Republic version, Hypori Escort, is largely identical except the enemies are switched around.
- Destroy Bridge on the Destroyer (proton torpedoes) 0/1
- Protect the D-1Z Bomber
- Destroy Enemy Jedi Ships
If you are unsure on how to fire proton torpedoes, this picture below will hopefully illustrate it.
Start The D-1Z Bomber escort portion of the mission is very easy and the bomber will survive it as long you take out the cannons on the frigates. You won’t really run into a missile shortage on this mission so feel free to unload them on the frigates. You will get a chance to take shots at 3 frigates without them really fighting back so make sure you route all power to blasters and blast them away!
3m 26s Ths is when the enemy Destroyer ship pops into view. This will complete the escort portion of the mission and is your first opportunity to use your proton torpedoes.Make sure you reroute all power to shields while trying to torpedo as there are quite a bit incoming fire.
2m 59s The first Jedi Ship appears here. These guys do hurt a bit so put on shield power if you are low on shield and use missiles.
2m 03s A good time to pop your EMP as you will be passing very close to one of the frigates and can destroy it with your EMP blast if you have damaged it enough.
1m 49s Here is your 2nd enemy Jedi Ship.
1m 23s Good opportunity to fire your 2nd Proton Torpedoes here and finish the objective.
49s The final jedi ship appears here. If you have enough HP left, just unload and finish up any remaining bonus objectives.
