Patch 1.7 Recurring events SWTOR

SWTOR Relics of the Gree event guide

A comprehensive guide to the SWTOR Relics of the Gree event. This is a recurring event that has being adjusted to level 65 and scheduled to return for one week from Jan 12 to Jan 19, 2016.


How do I get there?

First, go to the news terminal on the fleet, it should be around any of the four marked locations Watching the new broadcast will give you a new quest – The Gree Experiment/Gree Research Initiative, which asks you to head to Ilum western shelf and talk to the Gree Herald Droid.

  • Level 50+ characters can participate in the event. You will be downscaled to L52 for the event if you are L65.


Go to Ilum, take speeder to the western shelf.


Gaining Reputation

Reputation are earned by doing these daily missions or killing world bosses. All of the daily missions reward you with items that you can use to gain Reputation. Note that Reputation ranks are not cumulative (i.e. to reach the Newcomer rank, you need 2500 rep for Outsider and 5000 rep for Newcomer for a total of 7500 rep).

  • Gree Memory Chip (green) = 270 Reputation (180 for F2P players)
  • Gree Data Core (blue) = 630 Reputation (420 for F2P players)
  • Ancient Gree Artifact (purple) = 1440 Reputation (960 for F2P players)
Rank Reputation required
(per rank)
Reputation Required (cumulative) Weeks to Reach
Weeks to Reach (12600/week) Weeks to Reach (12672/week) Legacy Title
Outsider 2500 2500 0 0 0  
Newcomer 5000 7500 0 0 0 Gree Research Assistant
Friend 7500 15000 1 1 1  
Hero 10000 25000 2 1 1 Honored Silver Acute
Champion 15000 40000 3 3 3  
Legend 30000 70000 5 5 5 Perfect Gold Bisector

The trick for maximal reputation gain per week is to get close to the 12000 weekly reputation cap as possible and then consume a purple reputation item to go over. The maximum reputation gain without any reputation bonus is 11970/week or 11979/week with 10% guild reputation bonus.


You can go over the 12k weekly cap as long you use the last item <12k. The reputation gain over 12k are not lost.

Here is a handy chart you can use to see how much reputation and Gray Helix components you can gain. F2P players earn 50% less reputation.



Starter Missions

These missions are available to pick up at the western Ice shelf as soon as you arrive on Ilum.

Note that the Empire and Republic missions are identical except in names.

Gray Secant Missions

These missions are only available once you reach the Newcomer standing with the Gree Enclave. That is 2500 to reach Outsider rank and another 5000 to reach Newcomer rank for a total of 7500 rep. Once you reach Newcomer rank, purchase the Gray Secant authorization from the reputation vendor next to the mission terminal.

Tip: To get enough reputation for newcomer, you can either do the above missions on many alts (3 character’s worth of dailies should enough or farm the world bosses on Ilum since each give 630 reputation).

Now go back to the mission terminal on Ilum western ice shelf and pick up another two missions


Head to Gray Secant in the north section of the Western Ice Shelf. (Take the teleporter at the mission terminal). There are two entrances, one for the Imperials (left) and one for the Republic (right) so don’t zone into the wrong one.


Inside the Gray Secant, there is another droid who will offer you another quest called Ancient Gree Relays.This droid is located on the left for Empire players, on the right for Republic players.

World Bosses

All of these world bosses drop Gree Data Core, which give 630 rep. There is also an area quest called [AREA] Combat Specimen to kill these three world bosses. The 3rd boss, Xenoanalyst II, is inside the Gray Secant, which is only accessible if you have Newcomer standing or higher. Surgok’k and Gravak’k both have respawn timers of 2 hrs.

The first two world bosses are designed for a 8-24 ops group with the standard 2 tank, 2 healer, rest all DPS setup. They drop 2x Outlander (208)  pieces in addition to the Gree Data Core. Xenoanalyst II, which is technically an operation boss inside a closed instance, has both storymode/hardmode versions to fit raid sizes of 8 or 16 accordingly.

[Area] Combat Specimen, to kill the 3 bosses do not reward anything other than 11k credits and a title called Combat Specimen [name]



  • 4 million HP
  • Put a stacking debuff on the tank that increase damage taken (i.e. tank swap)
  • Angry Spittle – puts a DoT on the entire raid that needs to be cleansed or AoE healed through.
  • Queens’s Summon – summon 3 elite adds



  • 4 million HP
  • Does an attack called Rage Pound and Rage Flip that will stun the tank and knock them back (tank swap)
  • After Rage Flip, he does an AoE on the raid and drop red circles on the circles that you need to avoid
  • Boss cleaves so do not stand in front of him.



Xenoanalyst II

  • Weekly lockout, boss inside the Gray Secant (separate lockout for storymode/hardmode). Must be newcomer standing or higher to access it.
  • There is no bolster inside the operation instance so you need to be L65 and with 208/216 gear for storymode/hardmode preferably.
  • Drops (storymode): 1 Unassembled random Defiant MK-X piece (216), 12 Common Data Crystals, 8 Glowing Crystals. 4 Gray Helix Components, 1 Ancient Gree Artifact (1440 rep) on 8m. Drops 2x Defiant Pieces and 6 Gray Helix Components on 16m.
  • Drops (hardmode): 1 Unassembled Exarch piece (220), 12 Glowing Data Crystals, 8 Radiant Data Crystals,  6 Gray Helix Components, 1 Ancient Gree Artifact (1440 rep) on 8m. Drops 2x Unassembled random Exarch pieces and 8 Grey Helix components on 16m along with 4 random assembled Exarch pieces.
  • Has a complex mechanic which is detailed in this guide.



Lore Objects/Codex Entries

Fray Landing Memorial

While not related to the Gree event, this lore object has special significance to the revamped Ilum. On the very south end of the Western Ice Shelf, where the Republic base used to be, one can find a lore object called Fray Landing Memorial. This lore object is perhaps a reference to the Ilum back in the early days (patch 1.1, late Jan, 2012) where Empire players were able to push themselves into the Republic base and killing Republic players repeatedly due to the faction imbalance in the early days favoring Empire . This caused an emergency patch shortly after patch 1.1.


To get to this memorial. players can get to the abandoned Republic base in the south via  tunnel on the south end of the contested area.


Gray Secant

This lore object was mentioned earlier in the missions section but just incase you missed it. When doing [Daily] Advanced Testing/Advanced Analysis, you will encounter this object at the north end of the Gray Secant near the Core Testing Unit droids.


Tonvarr Pirates

On the NW camp of the Tonvarr pirates for the External Variables daily, you can find a Tonvarr Datastore that will give you the codex entries for Tonvarr Pirates.

Advanced: Slugging the Slug (25 pts)

  • You will need to kill Surgok’k the world boss on Ilum, 10 times.
  • Doing so will also reward you with Achievement Slugging the Slug (10 pts), which is rewarded for killing Surgok’k once.

But They Don’t Like Droids (50 pts)

  • You will need to kill 1000 droids on Ilum. They can be found mostly north of the zone and inside the Gray Secant itself.
  • Doing so will alos reward you with achievements They Don’t Like Droids (10 pts) and They Build Lots of Droids (25 pts), which are rewarded for killing 50 and 250 droids respectively.

Junior Research Project (50 pts)

  • You will need to purchase Miniature Gray Secant from the Gree reputation vendor on Western Ice Shelf, which requires Legend standing and 50k credits.
  • You can do this achievement regardless if the Gree event is active or not, so if the planets are getting a bit crowded, do it another time.
  • You will need to travel to 5 planets and kill specific creatures while having your Miniature Gray Secant out (you will need to re-summon it upon arrival to every planet).
  • Planets like Tatooine and Quesh are fairly easy to complete while planets like Alderaan and Balmorra can be extremely time consuming as the creatures you need are scattered all over.

1) Bormu – Balmorra


  • Bormus are mostly located in Markaran Plains on the west side of Balmorra. This place is the best place to farm them for the achievement as there are 10+ Bormus in close proximity with a respawn timer of 4.5 minutes. Other Bormu locations are also listed for convenience.

2) Womp Rats – Tatooine


  • For the Womp rats at the Imperial speeder in Mos Ila, you will need to kill them before the guards get them.
  • For other Womp rats, it is best to not attack them first but rather run into them and let them aggro you. This is because Womp rats tend to spawn friends to help them but they won’t do that if you kill them in one hit.
  • Numbers inside circles indicate the number of womp rats you can find in that particular location.

3) Lraida – Alderaan


  • There are two types of Lraida, regular ones and Bolraida.
  • Lraidas are scattered all over Alderaan but you may have the best result in Alsakan Lowlands. Respawn timer for these Lraidas is around 4.5 minutes.
  • A map of Alderaan is provided for reference for those who are unsure of the various sub-zone connections in Alderaan.


4) Lobels – Quesh


  • Lobels are literally everywhere on Quesh, which makes this planet very easy to complete. Lobels come in singles and in packs of 4-5 (packs seems to be more prominent in north part of the map).
  • Numbers inside circles indicate the number of lobels you can find in that particular location.

5) Acklay – Belsavis


  • There are two really good spots for Acklays – high concentration north of High Security Section outside/inside the Republic Detention Compound (accessible by all) and another spot in Maximum Security Section where you can find several elite and a champion Acklay.
  • Numbers inside circles indicate the number of acklays you can find in that particular location.

Wow you’re fast. Waiting in anticipation to get ingame after work, and there’s already a guide! Love your dedication 🙂

These weapons bind to legacy. The special icon means they have a minimum reputation required.

They also look AMAZING.

the hilt for the saber looks weird… can we get another pic of it closer up?
the blades on them look amazing though. very Operator X-ish. The hilt on the double saber is awesome

The tron armors are on the vendor next to the one Dulfy has with the weapons. 2 sets, buy for cash if you have lvl 2 rep and lvl 5 rep for the 2nd set.

The Operation Boss inside the ship is the main source of helixes. From Story mode 8 he drops 4 and 16 man drops 6. In HM he drops 6 for 8 man and drops 8 helixes for 16 man.

This is an Op boss and has the same lockout as other operations. So you will only be able to kill this boss twice a week (once story and once HM).

Also, the one time quest to kill him gives you two helixes.

Doing this on my main I ended up with 15 helixes on the first day. A guildy that did both HM and SM on 16 man ended up with 20 on the second day.

Beyond that, only the heroic daily drops a helix.

You have to achieve champion status to buy the weapons, and it’s worth noting that the Xenoanalyst drops multiple grey helixes. I’m not entirely sure of how many, but within two days I had 21 on my sage.

Dulfy, have you determined the reputation levels, how the rep boost factors into weekly rep cap, or how to get on the ship? As far as the ship, it looked like republic had it ‘controlled’ when I was there earlier, but not sure how they did that…

Is there really only 1 Gray Helix Component reward per day? If this lasts 14 days, that’s only 14 components, which kind of screws over the people who only have 1 Level 50. I’d think they would have given you at least 2 components per day…

The description for them says they are primarily acquired from killing “Zenoanalyst II” aboard the Gray Secant, but to get on board you need to get to Newcomer, which may take 2-3 days of doing the Dailies.

Maybe a dumb question, but I need to ask. Is the entire western shelf a PvP flag area, or just the part labeled Contested Area? In other words, can I do the Heroic and Daily missions without getting the snot ganked out of me?

You will only get flaged for PVP, if you enter the central area of the Western Shelf. So its safe to do the Heroic and Daily missions.

Only the contested area is PVP. But if you attack a flagged player of the opposite faction, you’ll be flagged.

Pretty sure those reputation gains are for subscribers (with the +50 % reputation bonus). Need to get in game to verify.

Same. I don’t know how long it’s been since last kill, but I’ve been in a raid group near an hour and no spawn yet. Plus, while waiting, dulfy updated the site to say “over” an hour spawn time on the WB’s

Agree on this, we camped it yesterday after a kill, and it seems to be 2 hours relatively precisely. Don’t know what they thought when they programmed THAT…

Each one drops 2x black hole gear, one level 50 purple gear item, and you may be given a Gree Data Core which grants you 630 rep.

What’s staying and what’s being removed on the 24th? I thought this event was supposed to be permanently/repeating.

Completed the faction requirement running 3 50’s through all the missions in the area. Buy the pass to unlock access to the ship. After the unlock the mission terminal will have 2 new missions. One is for cores and droid on the ship and the other is for the op boss 8-16 man at the back. There is a door for Imp (Left) and Rep (Right) with a champ guard so other factions don’t enter. There is also a droid inside that has a gathering quest to talk with droids on 6 planets ( Dromund Kaas, Tatooine, Alderaan, Quesh, Hoth, and Voss. Each droid is guarded by 4 golds for the level of that planet.

Has anyone else had trouble locating the droid on Tatooine? I get there and there’s nothing pointing the way to where it is.

Droid Mission – The Ancient Gree Relays – You can use you speeder to drive up to the droid to click on them and run away from combat if needed. Rewards – 2 Gray Helix Components – L1-L Scout pet (brown and green lighted) – and 1 Ancient Gree Trophy (purple rep item)

Operation Mission – Unite Examination – Defeat Xenoanalyst II – 8-16 man op group needed to enter area in the back. Separate Rep and Imp entrances.

Not sure if that’s just first turn in… have to wait until tomorrow. Working on completing this on all 3 now in case its daily

On your next toon look in the mission log, it should say if its repeatable or not there. Thanks for the info for those of us stuck at work!

One time only, but you can complete it on all of your alts. Considering it rewards a purple, 1440 trophy, it’s worth doing.

The Ancient Gree Relays – you can click on the droids from speeder and run away if needed. Rewards for turning them in – 2 Gray Helix components – 1 L1-L Scout (droid pet) and one purple reputation trophy that gave me 1440 rep.

Do I need any specific reptation ranks to get “The Ancient Gree Relays”? Or is it available when you have no reputation rank at all?

Hi i know its been 8 years now^^, but i got the M1-N1 scout from the “ancient gree relays” mission and not L1-L scout.. did they rename it?

Can you look in your reputation list and tell us what the reputation requirement for the next level past Newcomer, “Friend”? Thanks!

Newcommer to friend is 7500 – looks like I will be capped at 4500/7500 in Newcommer since its for locked for the rest of this week. Guess I can store rewards for next weeks unlock.

The tatooine one for pubs (at least) is in the N cave entrance that leads to the dune sea. The hoth one is in the starship graveyard, relatively close to the imp base there.

The droid on Tatooine is located at -587, -1460 (x,y) it will not show up on your map until you reach the zone it is in (at least it didnt for me)

Hey Dulfy, i just got into the grey Secant and got 2 new missions, Unity Assesment and daily Advanced Testing. once i got inside Advanced Testing was an easy quest and Unity Assesment requires 8-16 man ops here are some pics of the two new missions

I found another quest inside Grey Secant. {The Ancient Gree Relays}. You have to find hidden Gree droids on Coruscant, Tatooine, Alderaan, Quesh, Hoth, and Voss…

Killing the 3rd world boss gives you 4 weapon components and a purple rep trophy. In addition, the quest to kill him – Unity Assessment – gives you 2 more components, and 1 purple rep trophy. This is for the Storymode lockout.

World boss timer is NOT one hour. I’ve been standing around like an idiot for longer than that. Edit: Looks like two hours, we got it down. Edit2: Definitely 2 hours, came back again and it spawned right on time.

Xenoanalyst II:
On 16-man Story Mode drops: 2 Black Hole piece, 6 Black Hole Commendations, 6 Gray Helix Components, 2 Ancient Gree Artifact (1440 rep)

Yeah, can confirm the 6 helix components and 2 large rep increases (still sitting in my bags as I’m already capped on rep for the week) from 16 man story. We did it with 14 and 4-5 healers easily.

Not sure where you’d want to put this info up but you can get into the Southern area of Ilum where the Pub base used to be. Can get there through a tunnel just South of the Gree Hyper Dome. There will be a few Ancient Gree Destroyers lurking around the area that can drop the mini pet and count towards the bonus mission. Coolest part though is that there’s a lore object in the remains of the Pub base. The lore and amount of dead bodies around the place seemed like a nod at the base camping wayyyy back in the beginning Ilum PvP. Was pretty cool to find 🙂

GO thruoughthe tunnel and follow the path to the right. Stay on the road down the south-western side. One is in a valley there.

I’m thinking there is just one up at a time at one the possible locations because I’ve seen them in the same places a few times

We just killed all three world bosses and got a Title Codex Entry titled “The Contraband Collector”. Unfortunately this seems bugged, because none of us got titles.

hi Dulfy, you might want to add to your gree enclave reputation chart that you get reputation just for starting the quest(one time), also the bigger droid in the pvp area gives reputation for the bonus mission.
Both 270 if I’m not mistaking.

There’s a lore object inside a tent outside the entrance to Gravak’k that gives you a codex emtry for the Tonvarr Pirates.

Found a lore object you do not have listed. The item is a “Tonvarr Datastore” and it’s found inside the house/tent in the north-western Tonvarr camp (-2334, -944). Gives the lore entry “Tonvarr Pirates” under Organizations.

I don’t know if it’s in here anywhere Dulfy, but if u do the Xenoanalyst in 16 man mode – the story mode reward is 6 Helix’s – not 4.

Has Bioware Changed the Reputation requirement for the Grey Helix items in this mornings Patch? Or made it at least purchasable but not equipable? I am at work at the moment and not able to log in. Putting in rewards in an event and then making it completely unattainable by the end of the event is completely wrong to me. I can kind of see where they were going with the idea, since it is a repeatable event, but to do the dangle a carrot trick is completely uncalled for. They could easily change the weapons out at the next event. I have limited time gaming and it will be hard enough for me to get the items for the weapons, but to not be able to get the item because of a mechanic restriction…. seriously?
Bioware here is a carrot for you, my money dangling on the line$$$!

I don’t think there were any changes. I am 1 Gray Helix component short of buying the lightsaber so I am test it out tomorrow after the daily set. The other rep items (i.e. the pet or armor) cannot be purchased until you are at that rep rank.

Hey, Dulfy, non-subs get less rep from the items. The green ones (memory chips) give 180 rep for preferred players. I don’t know the others because I’ve only done the solo stuff and I don’t know if free players get even less because the 180 is not 50% of 270 (if my maths is correct) and subs are supposed to get 50% more points.

The correct math:
180 + 50% = 180 + (180 /2) = 180 + 90 = 270

Ok, so now the other way:
270 * (2/3) = 180
630 * (2/3) = 420
1440 * (2/3) = 960

Yeah, I was doing the wrong calculation because of something else I’ve had been doing the past couple of months and it didn’t even dawn on me so thanks for the correction.

Does the L1-L Defender pet not drop off the Ancient Gree Destroyer until you have friend status? I’ve killed almost 10 of them and haven’t seen it drop yet. I suppose I could be just unlucky.

I’m drooling over the White Scalene Armor… At least 4 weeks of grinding will be worth it… How fast can you get 12500 reputation a week? is it doable if you only play 2-3 days a week, with an estimate of 5 hours a day, so 15 hours total?

So where can i gett mission fpr Ancient Gree Relays? i am standing in front of the
Vonogarusa-K located on the Old Galactic Market.but i cant do anything? So what i have to do?

If you’re leveling using the “gearbox” method I’ve figured out other combinations to attain 11,970 a week. You can use 19blue like mentioned above but the equivalent can be attained from 21green+10blue or 7purple+3blue. They all work and add up to 11,970 😀

Hi, you have error there. F2P earn base level (e.g. 100%) and subscriber earn 50% more (e.g. 150%), which is not same as F2P earning 50% less.

Can we get a version of this showing rep trophies if you’re in a guild with max reputation bonus such that each rep trophy is worth 10% more?

hey dulfy, your mission reward graphic is missing the “*needs friend standing” annotation on the unity missions. thanks for your enitre site!

Just reached the Hero rank. Champion requires 15k of reputation instead of 12,5k. Guess, it will be 20 or 25 for legend.

Great article as usual! For the rep levels it turns out that Hero to Champion is in fact 15k, not 12.5k as assumed. Stands to reason that Champion to Legend will then by maybe 20k, for a total of 60k.

I just reach the rep cap again this week and you just get to Hero(one level behind champ) so im wondering if by the end of the event(FEB 26) you’ll be able to buy atleast one legacy weapon or if we have to wait for the event to return????

Any info on when this event will come back? I was thinking it would be like every month or two, but a couple of my guildies are certain that it will only be a yearly thing…I really don’t want to wait a year to get my legacy lightsaber…

No one knows yet as the furthest anyone got so far is Hero and can see the requirements for champion, We will know by next tuesday I guess as some players will be able to reach champion by then.

Champion to Legend takes 30k rep, I just unlocked Champion on the PTS (yay for double weekly cap, once on normal and once on PTS). The total rep required is then 70k.

Dulfy either i over read your pet section or it does not mention the Defender pet which will replace the destroyer guy for the PVP bonus quest sometimes can’t tell how often he spawns got this around 4:12p.m. eastern U.S. today

Sorry if this has been asked already, but does anyone know when this event will return? Champion status needs to be achieved, been waiting too long for a BtL sabre,.. Now if they could only add a BtL Focus/Shield/Gen for the events return!

It takes 30,000 reputation to go from Hero to Legend. Just hit Legend on the PTS. Also took screenshots of the lightsaber changing with color crystal choice. The blade changes color, but the hilt remains blue.

I cleared the Xenoanalyst II boss on hard mode last night and the L1-L Defender pet dropped from it (someone else won the roll, sadly).

I’m not sure if anyone has posted this, but I just discovered that the news stand quest is a daily that give a free green rep token. Finding this out the last day of the event, priceless.

It wasn’t repeatable this time around.

Still, I got 13410 reputation last week (Newcomer, and most of the way to Friend), and I have 15 purple, 60 blue and 47 green reputation items saved up for use over the coming weeks — and 24 components on each of 4 characters — that is enough to reach Legend and then some.

The devs posted in the forums last night that the event would end even without maintenance. But I haven’t checked yet.

I wish I would have realized getting 11970+1440 even week would let you hit Champion early. I tried to max my overage but the margin was tight. Only 230 leftover points. Unless my math or understanding is off. Was a fun event.

Sorry someone already asked this, but now that we are Legend, do we just sell or gree rep to the vendor or does anyone know if Bioware expects to allow you to use it for something else?

What is the commendation reward for these dailies?
All the guides mention daily commendations, but those don’t exist, it would be nice if that could be updated 🙂

How long would it take to be friend of the gree? If u are doing all the dailies and pvp quests for example? 🙂

According to my calculations, you can hit Hero in 2 weeks and Champion in 3.
10% Guild bonus gives you 297 rep pts for green, 693 for blue and 1584 for purple rep item.
By consuming 38 green+1blue or 3 green+16 blue you hit 11979, then one purple gives you 13563 pts per week.
Still takes 6 weeks for Legend though…

Sure you can. Farm the Destroyer in the South half of Illum. It has 5(?) respawn points and a fixed respawn timer. Just need to drive around to the different spawns, find it, kill it, and collect stacks upon stacks of Gree Memory Chips (green.) Sure the event will be over by the time you spend them all, but you can certain grind out the rep even after the event is over.

I have noticed alot of little fixes in the last couple of patches regarding the Relics of the Gree event. Do you have any information on when it will be returning?

its possible to get champion in 2 weeks with one character, you just need to save up your reputation items untill the maximum of 12k rep resets, and you also need to kill xeno hm and sm, so its not impossible to get champion in 2 weeks.

Same question, when will the event return? Or how often did it happen in past? I covet the Gree saber : – )

The past two events have roughly been around Christmas/ December time…So I think we have a while to wait

The last event was December the one before that was in July. So it will probably be returning soon (hopefully). Tbh this is probably the best event they got atm Rakghoul Resurgence was a bust and Bounty Week can only be enjoyed for so long. So I hope this returns soon.

*coughs* you may want to update the page, since they added legacy offhands to the gree vendor and since the Helix components are now bound to legacy. It would also be helpful if you would include the price of all of the items in your guide.

Hello Dulfy; I got a question on how many characters : main or alts, does it require to get to Champion rank on this event??

One level 55 can, if they do a lot of the Klorslug and Wampa world boss kills in addition to the daily & weekly missions, gather enough reputation items to get to Champion, although of course it will require using up the items each week to hit the cap.

I played 5 characters this past week that are 55 and earned enough Rep tokens to surpass Champion. I didn’t even play every day; I think I logged in 5 out of the 7 days of the event. I just need to log in tonight and next Tuesday to pop all those tokens.

“Note that these Gray Helix components are not tradeable and bound to your character. So that cannot be traded between alts to acquire the weapons faster.”

This info is no longer valid, as Gray Helix components can be mailed to your alts, that is to say, they are bound to legacy.

I believe you can be any level to “take part” in the Gree event, although to pick up any missions you must be at least 50, but may be only 55.

50+ to be able to do the missions, and I believe you get Bolstered (as in a WZ) on the Western Ice Shelf if you are 50-55.

Should note that while the missions are only during the Gree event, the dropbox and vendors stay, should you forget to turn in a mission.

Doubt I’ll be able to get into the raid instance even once anyway, LOL. Thank you for confirming the other ones though, I may need them. 😉

No classic commendations…what’s the point for someone who doesn’t want or doesn’t need basic commendations? It’s almost as if some will feel they have been “not invited”…

Basic is a higher tier then Classic. If you don’t want basic, you either are crazy or you don’t have Rothc. I’m betting on the latter. So, in a way, you are “not invited”. Simply buy the expansion with real money from Bioware, and welcome to the party!

Classic comms provide the set bonus and basics do not. Many specs benefit from the set bonus of a 146 classic set armoring more than they do with a 186 non-set bonus. This is especially true for dps and heals because they do not benefit from the armor rating increase of higher armorings. For example if you read the sentinel class guide it will say in it that the set bonus will always increase your dps more than the additional strength.

The set bonus for Classic and Arkanian and up are different, though. And Classic set bonus doesn’t stack with Arkanian, so it’s a good alternative, yes, until you get Arkanian tokens.

WARNING: Gray Helix Lightsaber is crooked in-game as well as in the picture Dulfy has listed. I only noticed this when I used it on my Guardian since they carry their sabers in an upward motion. The saber comes up crooked from the hilt several degrees off. It can be quite maddening to stare at a crooked saber for hours.
The saving grace is that it is also the longest saber in-game. It is about an in-game foot longer than other sabers which looks pretty awesome!

I think u’re the one who made a thread in the official forums, and thanks for the warning. I can’t believe (well I can) they haven’t fixed that… damn u BW… Gree even is my fave, has a very good mood, the gear, weapons, the pvp ganking… yet this bug is very irking…

A few typos that may cause some confusion:

1. The date, that was a year ago the Gree event came back on July 22nd 2014

2. “The maximum reputation gain without any reputation bonus is 11970/week or 11979/week with 10% guild reputation bonus.” What you want to say is “The maximum reputation gain without going over the 12000/week cap without any reputation bonus is 11970/week or 11979/week with 10% guild reputation bonus.

3.You say that the f2p players get 50% less reputation above the chart for where to find the rep items for f2p players, but the rep items give 2/3rds (or 66.67% in percentage form).

Just a tip for those who want the White Scalene Armor, but don’t have the reputation level…buy a white/white dye module and the blue scalene armor. Looks exactly the same.

One question guys … what is the minimun level for the gree event, now with the boost ?? … level 20 ?? 45 ?? … thanks

Prior to 3.0, I’m pretty sure you only got bolstered in that area of Ilum if you were level 50 or higher. I’m looking forward to seeing what they do with this in 3.x.

it says that it is bound to legacy then turns around and says that it is bound to your character and cant be traded between alts

“All of the weapons are Bind on legacy and requires Champion reputation with the Gree…. Note that these Gray Helix components are not tradeable and bound to your character. So that cannot be traded between alts to acquire the weapons faster.”

Also while the main hand weapons require champion rep the offhands require only hero rep

It only says that when your installing armor/mods/enhan you then can tranfer to other characters. I use Gree/Legacy between my Sorc/sage and Vanquard/BountyHunter. Actually thats the only gear I use now even use the gear BW gave us for my companions to save on having to gear everyone individually.

No… it says that the weapons are Bind on Legacy, and that the things required to purchase the weapons (Grey Helix Components) are bind to character.

The one time objectives are not repeatable but each of your characters can do the one time missions. Maybe you did it on different characters?

Not that this question hasn’t been asked 1,000 times already, but will we be seeing the return of this event before this year’s over? I know the devs are probably preoccupied with Shadow of Revan but I would really like to see Relics of the Gree sometime within the last few months of 2014.

It wouldn’t HAVE to be re-balanced and they already have a decoration in game that is suppose to drop from a Gree Event enemy. So it would seem as though they would want us to farm that area sometime soon.

Yeah, thanks for the opinions guys. I bet it’ll come around sometime before May of next year, after the initial excitement of the expansion and everything has died down. But the Gree decor thing does make it seem like we will be seing the Gree again sometime soon.

They have balanced it to 60, that’s what the newest update was for among other things. The Gree event is set around February/March a week or two after the Bounty Event

Last year they ran a Life Day Event while they ran the Gree Event it started on Dec 17th. With the expansion coming out on Dec 9th, it does leave the question of… what are they going to do for the holidays this year? It would be nice to see another Life Day/Gree Event, but I really hope they re-run the Life Day Event at least. Although I’m not getting my hopes up that they will run an event that close to the expansion release… unless they run the events to give the f2p people something to do.

Would anyone else like to additional colors for the Tron-like light on the Scalene armors? I’m voting for purple!

Also, when will they finally make the Grey Helix Components BOL?

was wondering if u was going toto update your

Heroic quests & bonus series and their rewards both imp and pub side for 3.0

To get the conquest achievement for this do you just need the conquest points while the event is running or is there something else?

I did the relay on an old event just fine.. but trying to pick it up with toons that didn’t exist then, and can’t get the quest from droid.. something not quite right…?

Just tried it, and greatly disappointed in it. I don’t pvp so it’s pointless really for those that don’t really pvp, and at lvl 60, totally worthless.

It’s always been a pvp event. Always. Advice that’s been given through the years regarding this event is that if you don’t want to pvp don’t do the event. If you want pve content then you can do the small section of pve stuff, or wait for the pve centered events to come back around. The game needs to be balanced for all types of players…pvp or pve.

I was offline when they did it last time so I didnt know about it being a PVP event. So yeah my lvl 60’s can craft and give my alts stuff. So oh well, I know now and know not to look at it again..

I don’t know that there being PvP quests included for additional rep necessarily makes this a “PvP event”. 3 World Bosses and more than half the quests are PvE quests.

You’re absolutely right. I should have qualified it a bit better. It’s not pvp in the sense that it’s the pvp we’re used to, but it’s definitely pvp in the sense that it’s open world and you will get hit if you’re just going about your business pve style. I could see how the poster I responded to doesn’t like it if he / she wants to be left alone.

Regular Gree dailies suck. Being forced into op groups to get a measly couple tokens to buy mediocre (at best) items sucks. Douchebag PVPers running into groups of mobs you’re targeting hoping you’ll accidentally target them so they and their fifteen douchebag guildies can stomp you into the dirt sucks. This is the shittiest event in TOR, absolutely not worth any effort at all. They could delete this one and bring back the original Chevin event on NS, the only event that was actually slightly fun.

Indeed those kinda lame as* baboons with no spine are there. Remember not to use Aoe when fighting enemy creatures or just non human controlled enemies. Indeed game needs to be balanced for all types of players like wileydsp said, but can’t really say that balancing has been made for Pvp’ers in general for ages 😀 Sure event including pvp and pve missions and being flagged is good and not good. U can skip pvp missions and not going to pvp area where u get flagged. Wish u good gaming.

I have avoided it this time all around. Just went back to soloing pve with new characters. A habit of mine, have two legacies on diff servers at 50, the one on Jedi Cove. has all 8 classes maxed, so I just logged out of that server and went to Shadowlands where I’m currently maxed at legacy lvl 50, and starting the stories over there. Thought about trying PVP, but have no clue in anything after I hit 60, thats when all the guild invites hit me “Hey you’re lvl 60, and we can use you to pvp, run ops, and so forth”, my reply. I have no clue where to begin, “Theirs, “Ohh well nevermind”.

I can’t seem to find the Xeno quest. Any idea where I should pick it up? I have Hero Rep and bought the authorization. Still can’t find it. Unity something its called. Help!

One time from missing box right after you pick up and consume grey secant authorization(if you have hero rep you’ve likely done previously)

Love these PVP events, I just keep dying over and over again. Love this game. Mechanics are awesome. Fuck my life, this even makes me literally want to kill myself every second.

It’s great having no friends. Just dying over and over again. I come home from a shitty day at work, to have a shitty day in game. Discouraged with life on both fronts. Thanks Gree Event, my need to complete it hates you.

You can just y’know, not do the pvp missions? There’s only two, one grants a green reputation item and the other a blue one.

In a week you can reach Friend if you’re careful how you use the rep (creep up and pop a larger one just below 12k). Chart on this page shows how 🙂

just remember there’s no real other than practical limit to stockpiling rep tokens that can be used in the weeks after the event ends

Bit of a late reply, but I’m slated to reach Legend today (full spreadsheet here This is running the PvE dailies on three to four characters and running Xeno SM once each on six characters. In addition, I did the introductory one-time quest on about 15 lvl 50+ characters for one green token each, ran Xeno HM once, killed each of the world bosses once, and did the PvP Dailies three or four times. Reaching Friend rating only requires 15000 reputation as opposed to Legend’s 70000, so it should be very manageable with one or two characters depending on participation in PvP, WB and Xeno kills.

No repeatable solo missions grant tokens. Not a single solitary one.
If you don’t have lots of available friends or guildies, gaining any amount of tokens is an exercise in pitiless masochism.

well with the event going on I am having absolutely no trouble stacking my gree gray helix components. already did sm and hm xeno ops with 4 toons with random groups, there is always some group forming for the ops and it is quite easy to atleast do SM

Agreed. I hate forced PUG content. Can’t get helix comps on my own? BW can stick their event somewhere fairly dark, warm and uncomfortable.

For those looking for a quick reputation formula and are starting their rep from zero (and also are subbed with full guild rep bonus):

(2277*number of toons) * number of days + (1584 * # of toons) + (297*number of toons)

This is for PVE missions only and includes the one-time starter mission and one-time Gray Secant mission that has you planet-hopping.

Is Ancient Gree Relays one-time-ever or one-time-per-event (per toon)? I thought it reset with each appearance of the event, but this seems not to be the case.

What is Ancient Gree Re-ender? I saw it in center of pvp area. Some rare spaun? What its drop?

Are you playing in English or another language? It could be a mis-translation of Defender which drops a pet

About the “trick” to go over 12000 reputation. Doesn’t matter if you do that or not, it will still take 5 weeks minimum to hit legend.

Yep.. Blows that they extended the event instead of fixing the Conquest within few hrs after bug was reported. 30mins after server came b from patching and again bad patching / maintenance timing for Eu Gmt +1 fans.

Yep naturally are. Swtor’s dev team “new ones espesially after old founder devs got kick to butt and removed” have been simplifying the product and char lvl progression and content in general for a long time. Big simplifying started @ 3.0 and continued @ 3.2 :/ Hopefully stops soon. Wish u good gaming o/ Friendly regards: Subber since launch and gamer who appreciates non simplified a.k.a dumbed down gaming.

Most players have played allow 8 stories by now and when they want a new toon they don’t want to spend hours grinding it….Besides, your comment is irrelevant-extending an event has nothing to do with simplification.

I was super excited to buy the sphere mount for this event but then when I went to see what it looks like with my character I noticed that it clips with my head. If my body type 2 was bald, then maybe it wouldn’t clip. Honestly, very confused how bioware makes a mount that clips ur head. Clothing, I can understand. But not my poor avatar :((((((

Ooh I have never been around for one of these, cool. I’ll have to grind this a bit for that Red Scalene armor. Ouch that Rep system looks steep 0_o

What is wrong with this event? Every time it goes on i lose whole motivation to play SWTOR, completely. Every time I promise myself: You will farm Champion. But i can’t. I subscribe almost continuously since 2012 but still Newcomer…

“Level 50+ characters can participate in the event.”

Yeah, of course.. But if you are below 55 lvl, and your companion is not geared well (Yavin 4 armor + weapon) he deals literally zero damage. So you are on your own. And what if you are tank or healer? So 55+ will be more accurate.

P.S. I managed to do it with my 54 lvl sorc and 52 lvl Shadow tank but it was very long and pretty hard.

Xeno dropped I think 5 or 6 220 MK-2 pieces on 16m HM today. It was more than 4 I know that for sure.
The 2 unassembled Exarch is correct though for 16m HM.

OK, never did this before, so pardon the noob question. Is there solo PvE content involved here? Or is it more like groups?

All of it can be done solo, even the PVP stuff. I’m also a PVE player and I do all of the non-PVP stuff first and then find an instance where there is nobody in the contested zone and do the PVP stuff there. Then I go find a big group of people that are doing the WB’s and join them to farm the worm and wampa over and over. If you really don’t want to join with anyone at all you can skip the WB’s but they guarantee medium reputation drops for all raid members and there is no daily limit on them but there is a 2 hour (?) respawn on them.

The trouble with the Gree Missions is that they don’t all get Grey Helix Components as rewards. They really need to change it so they don’t only come from just two missions overall.

Anyone having any trouble with the interplanetary groups of 4 elite droids (for The Ancient Gree Relays mission)? And I’m talking about experiences with classes which have no CC droid or non-strealth 60 CC, juggernaut/guardian, powertech/vanguard, assassin/shadow.

After the Rakghoul event and this one, I think these events just don’t suit my play style. It felt like there was too much competition for limited resources. Oh well, I don’t expect Bioware to cater to my whims here, so I’m not complaining.

This is especially true as the Grey Helix Comps only drop from two missions, one being an Operation, the other a Heroic that isn’t instanced, so everyone fights to get the droids first.

Found the solo 4.0 player!!

Then you dont understand the story behind the event. Gree want to see how we react under combat stress.

Actually I was in the Early Access. Played 3 months before the latency issues made it unplayable. Came back at the tail end of Revan, and played it on a Bootcamp before I spilled coffee on it, making it too weak for gaming.

But yeah, I prefer solo play

Are there two events going on this week? I read it was the Gree event, but when I logged in before the patch the Rakghoul event was active…

Originally it was planned for this week (probably on Corellia), but the announcement moved it back to Tatooine for next week. It probably triggered automatically before the patch hit the servers.

WTB end game content… where the fuck is any new endgame group content? Jesus.. over 13 months and nothing.. not a peep not a word on anything for group content. WTF just kill yourself Bioware Austin.

Gree event started today, May 3rd, 2016. I’m relatively new to the game… does this mean I will have to wait another 5 months to get “Friend” status with the reputation grind if it’s only here for a week? This is kind of lame.

You can only get 12k rep from the event for the week that its up BUT you will get way more then 12k rep with doing all the dailys every day and when the event is over you can still use all the rep tokens you have left for another 12k rep

Yep, I realized this last night and went on 3 toons to farm the dailes. I ended up with more than enough rep. Next time, I’ll be better prepared to maximize my rep gains. Maybe for a few weeks after the event, in fact, when using multiple toons.
