New boss ” Lucky ” on Corellia in axial park was fun but the rewards were a shocker maybe it was due to the group size I wouldn’t know. so here are the 3 pics from the fight I think it may have been a first also the title ” Lucky ” was obtained for a kill and if you died you got ” Unlucky ”

At first we thought it was a Worldboss but later has been confirmed it’s a Planet Dread-Seeded Creature.

i think the loot will be fixed, well, i hope it will πŸ™‚ I loved how Xeno dropped Bh gear and comms during the gree event, i thought this would drop like black market gear/elite comms and then one piece of ark. gear

Nice to know that there maybe a lot more of these Dreedseeded things about on each planet maybe it’s time to find them all πŸ™‚ so far we know of 2 where is the dreadseeded Womper on Hoth ?

Also crafting boss dropped 2 grade 10 mats
First chest was replaced with a Nasty droid with an AOE…. also 2 grade 10 mats plus black/orange crystal

found dreadseeded area on imp taris: Directly above enclave raid heroic area. Beware, roaming mobs of 4 normal enemies led by a champion, YES, they roam. and not slowly either. currently searching the rest of imp taris for the World Boss mentioned in the Achievements for taris.

Copied from my post in PTS on the forums

So far, confirmed sightings of Dread seed on Tatooine in the Ruined
Alcove near the Wreck of the Stardream, Hoth near the Republic base in
Chilling Spire area (As well as an area where tauntauns and Wampas are
at war), and Taris (Republic confirmed), directly above the Enclave Raid
heroic area. Point to the left of the enclave raid area, there is a
Bind point and Travel point indicating an area called the New Tarisian
Dawn. Now, if you look on the world map, the area above the points is
gray. Though if you check the travel route map of the planet, there is a
large rectangular building above the travel/bind point. Possible that
the new dread seeded world boss, Acidstalker, resides in this new area.
Dread Seeded rancor on Corellia is not a world boss, but seems to be
unfinished by the Devs in terms of mechanics. Still unconfirmed about
how to acquire the “Dread Seed” armor listed in legacy achievements.

Hey Dulfy, I’ve got some information on the Heroic Space Missions on PTS. They’ve definitely updated them to the following. I copied a toon that had all Grade 7 parts and did the Hypori Escort mission on the Republic side. Here are the results:

Rewards for Weekly Heroic Mission:
14,265xp (credit reward unchanged)
2 Elite Comms, 5 Basic, 1 Blue Trophy, 40 Fleet Comms

Reward for Mission Completion:
6,581xp (credit reward unchanged)

For random info, I got the following XP from the different types of targets:
18xp per fighters
31xp per bomber/Capital ship turret off of the Star Destroyer
125xp per Sith/Jedi ship
3293xp per bonus mission completion
1250xp per frigate (note: must destroy all components to get any XP from it)

I asked this previously in another thread but now that people have had time to play 2.0 on the PTS…

Do you still think it is best to spend all Black Hole comms now on campaign armoring rather than save them for the conversion to Classic comms?

A lot of us are earning them from the Weekly Ops, Xenoanalyst, etc. so I ask to make sure we all get the best value for these.

It is in my opinion best to spend them now as the prices are cheaper than the campaign gear in 2.0 even if you buy black hole gear + campaign armoring right now.

you might want to add to the post about lucky the champ on corellia killing him also grants the title lucky
