SWTOR Well Connected Makeb achievement guide

A guide for getting the SWTOR achievement Well Connected under Location –> Makeb –> Makeb Imperial Forces. This achievement is worth 25 points and requires you do complete the various staged weeklies in a specific pattern.

Complete all possible interconnections in the weekly mission Contain and Control for the Makeb Imperial forces.

Note that these sub-achievements probably require you to do the required missions in the same week. You cannot obtain all of the sub-achievements within the same week (it will probably take 2-3 weeks if you are starting from scratch).

    Thanks Dulfy!

    Looking forward to the Republic side as well :)

  • Keeva

    The Republic’s side has already been figured out. It’s just that one step is apparently bugged and the achievement cannot be done.

    If you’re looking for information on them, there’s a thread in the flashpoints/ops/hc missions subforum that details how to acquire them.
    Nevertheless I wonder if Dulfy is able to figure out a way around that bug. We never know. Anyways, thanks for the Imperial guide.

      Planted False Data in the Tarlam Hall of Records

      Do [STAGE 1] False History first and then [STAGE 2] Landing Party
      doesn’t work for me

      • http://dulfy.net/ Dulfy

        When you pick up Landing Party after False history, you should hear Under Moff saying a whole bunch of Jedi just got called over to the Archives. They’re about to find eveything you planted there.

          We got that message this week, but my wife didn’t get credit for it (I had got it a few weeks back somehow). Wonder if your character needs to be the one clicking the terminals in False History to get the credit

          • Christer Boräng

            Quite possible. One of us got the achievement, not the other two, when we did it just a few minutes ago.

    • Guest

      Confirmed the bug is still there, got the message from Jace Malcolm about mercs having been sent to the abandoned mining mesa as I entered the story area on Gravity Hook 4, but even after I completed Counterstrike(H2) and the hostage rescue part it did not update.

    You can use this thread to see the Republic version of this achievement until Dufly can make a proper guide.

  • Darth_Bob

    Are you sure that the only step required to unlock “Terrified the People of Westwater Settlements” is just simply doing [STAGE 2]: Local Trouble and its bonus, Build a Network?
    I did Local Trouble and its bonus on two different characters today and I didn’t get “Terrified the People of Westwater Settlements”. I thought one was just bugged and did it again on a different character but two characters can’t be coincidence.
    Perhaps there is another quest involved to get this part?

    • http://dulfy.net/ Dulfy

      okay, I know another guildie that didn’t get this sub-achievement either for doing Local Troubles. I did this with a friend and he got it. The exactly sequence of missions he did was

      [STAGE 1] [HEROIC 4] Sharing the Blame -> [STAGE 1][HEROIC 2] False Data -> [STAGE 1] Inciting Incident -> Interlude -> [STAGE 2] [HEROIC 4] Weapons Test -> [STAGE 2] The Dissonance Wave -> [STAGE 2] Local Troubles.

      I am wondering if the heroic 4 weapons test is involved.

      • Hux

        I did Weapons Test -> Dissonance Wave -> Local Trouble and did not receive the subachievement, so that can’t be it.

        • http://dulfy.net/ Dulfy

          Then I am thinking one of the three stage 1 missions are involved. Maybe Sharing the Blame or Inciting Incident.

          • Fo-Grenu

            I was doing this one first: Diverted Mercenaries to the Fingers away from the Cartel Mining Mesa

            But to fill in the Stage 1 quests I did: Covering Your Tracks (Did not do bonus) and A Trace of Guilt. Do not remember order of completion.

            Did not receive sub-achievement.

          • Lakes

            I think it is sharing the blame in that case. I had it completed before I did Inciting incident fronter first time. That means I also didn’t have weapon test. I did Sharing the Blame as my first mission the first 3. Or so seks I did this, so I guess that could be right.

      • http://twitter.com/BoricuaGRC GRC

        Dulfy. Ellyria and I on Ebon Hawk server just did this order and I got the Sub-Achievement for “Terrified The People of Westwater Settlements.”

        Stage 1 Heroic 4 Sharing the Blame / Stage 1 Heroic 2 False Data /
        Stage 1 Clean Bill of Health / Interlude / Stage 2 Landing Party / Stage
        2 Dissonance Wave / Stage 2 Local Troubles.

        The Quest that I think are linked are Stage 1 Heroic 4 Sharing the Blame to Stage 2 Dissonance Wave to Stage 2 Local Troubles.

        I purposely chose not to do Inciting Incident and Heroic 4 Weapons
        Test to disprove that they are NOT needed in order to complete the above
        mentioned sub achievement.

        As soon as we got to Stage 2 Local Troubles it requires you to pick up a “Ion Surge Emitter” when we did this a message popped up in chat saying the following:

        “That Data you planted on Telemur has got the civilians spooked. They think the mercs will flatten the mesa. Well need to coax them out.”

        Telemur is where the Heroic 4 Sharing the Blame is.

        Hope this helps. Ellyria I think is putting somethin on the SW:TOR official forums.

        • http://dulfy.net/ Dulfy

          Okay added thanks. I am assuming the post you made earlier is incorrect?

          • http://twitter.com/BoricuaGRC GRC

            Yea the one as “Guest” :D Sorry about the double post. I tried to delete it.

            • http://dulfy.net/ Dulfy

              No worries, I deleted it so as to not cause any confusion.

  • http://twitter.com/ooryl2 Tim Smith

    Got Diverted Mercenaries the other day, just have to do Weapons Test before Dissonance Wave. When you get to the last part of Dissonance Wave you’re notified the mercenaries are diverting

    • http://dulfy.net/ Dulfy

      so stage 1 inciting incident is not needed?

      • http://twitter.com/ooryl2 Tim Smith

        I was looking at your list wrong, confused the Volcanic Mesa Diversion with the Cartel Mining Mesa one. Inciting Incident is needed to open Weapons test, so yeah it’s needed for the Cartel Diversion

  • MaD

    I can confirm ” Diverted Mercenaries to the Volcanic Mesa ” with this

    [STAGE 1] Covering Your Tracks >> Smuggler’s Den >> Landing Party

    That is all u need

    • http://dulfy.net/ Dulfy

      cool thank you

    • MJade

      I did it like this: Covering Your Tracks->(A Trace of Guilt)->([Heroic 2] False History)->Smuggler’s Den->Landing Party, trying to combine 2: “Diverted Mercenaries to the Volcanic Mesa” and “Planted False Data in the Tarlam Hall of Records” and I got neither… If they cannot be combined like that and u need to do them exactly the one after the other.. I think that means u need more than 3 runs…. :(

  • Sylin

    I’m confused–the guide says to do stage 1 missions, then stage 2 missions, and then back to stage 1 again. Don’t the S1 missions disappear from the terminal when you’ve completed 3 of them? Or does the particular sequence keep those missions on the terminal?

    • http://dulfy.net/ Dulfy

      For which sub-achievement? they are all stage 1 missions first and then stage 2 missions

      • Sylin

        The guide says:

        Bobby Trapped the Abandoned Drill
        Completed [STAGE 1] Covering Your Tracks (could be bonus objective)
        Complete Bonus Objective “Frinn Mesa Followup”

        Do [STAGE 1] Clean Bill of Health first and you will notice a console right beside the shipping terminal you need to click forSlice the Hutt Embassy Archives in [STAGE 1] Twisting the Truth

        Create a Dissonance Wave at the Cartel Mining Mesa
        Do [STAGE 2] The Dissonance Wave first and then [STAGE 2] Eviction Notice.

        Diverted Mercenaries to the Fingers away from the Cartel Mining Mesa
        Do [STAGE 1] Inciting Incident, STAGE 2][HEROIC 4] Weapons Test and then [STAGE 2] The Dissonance Wave

        Am I mis-reading the guide? Some of these missions repeat, and others have you jumping from Stage 2 back to Stage 1 to do them in the proper sequence. Or does this achievement take multiple weeks to complete? I guess I just don’t get the order listed in the guide. From the way it’s written, it makes it sound like you have to do

        [STAGE 1] Covering Your Tracks
        [STAGE 1] Clean Bill of Health
        [STAGE 1] Twisting the Truth
        [STAGE 2] The Dissonance Wave
        [STAGE 2] Eviction Notice
        [STAGE 1] Inciting Incident
        [STAGE 2][HEROIC 4] Weapons Test
        [STAGE 2] Dissonance Wave

        and so on, and so on, until you conclude with [STAGE 1] A Trace of Guilt and then [STAGE 2] Smuggler’s Den at the end of the guide.

        What am I missing?

        • http://dulfy.net/ Dulfy

          Yes it will take multiple weeks to complete it all. You can’t do this in a single week. I guess that was where the confusion was. The guide kinda assume you already have some completed and not start from scratch.

          • Sylin

            So once you do Bobby Trapped the Abandoned Drill and Create a Dissonance Wave at the Cartel Mining Mesa (three stage 1 missions and two stage 2 missions) do you have to stop until the following week, since the next mission in the sequence is a stage 1?

            Thanks in advance for clarifying for me. I promise I’m not normally this daft. :)

            • http://dulfy.net/ Dulfy

              Sort of, you don’t have to them the achievements in sequence either. But yes if you want to get 1) Bobby Trapped the Abandoned Drill 2) Complete Bonus Objective “Frinn Mesa Followup and 3) Create a Dissonance Wave at the Cartel Mining Mesa and 4) Unlocked and Completed the Mission “Local Trouble” this week you will need to wait until next week to complete the other ones.

  • Lakes

    I can confirm that the “Diverted Mercenaries to the Volcanic Mesa” does not require Eviction Notice. I had it checked before I had completed it that week. Still did the other two on the order above.

    I can also confirm that”Terrified the people of the Westwater Settlements” does NOT require “[Heroic2] False Data”. I checked which one I had to see which of the results I should get last week and I noticed I had this one done despite never having done this Heroic.

  • Dredgion

    I just did [STAGE 2] Dissonance Wave and then [STAGE 2] Local Trouble followed by [STAGE 2] Eviction Notice and got credit for unlocking [STAGE 2] Local Trouble, and Created a Dissonance Wave at the Cartel Mining Mesa. So, you don’t need to do Eviction Notice right after Dissonance Wave to get part of the achievement as long as you do Dissonance Wave first.

  • BlahBlah

    How can you do Stage 2 quests after only doing one Stage 1 quest?

  • Neene

    Planted False Data in the Tarlam Hall of Records
    Do [STAGE 1] False History first and then [STAGE 2] Landing Party
    I did these quests, but didn’t get the achievement :(

    • Rick

      Samething happened to me……Did False History then Landing Party…..no achievement.

      • freimensch

        Got this problem 3 times in a row already – I have clicked all terminals (in False History), do all bonuses – but still not completed

        • freimensch

          So, done this H2 solo, and after accepting Landing Party got Under-moff words: “A whole bunch of Jedi got called over to the Archives. They’re about to find everything you planted there.”
          After completing it (btw, there is no any Jedi in story area in this case) – finally got my achievement.

  • Neene

    Inciting Incident is bugged for me – can’t get the binoculars to work, always says I am in the wrong place :(

  • MJade

    How many weeks its supposed to take starting from scratch? on rep side its possible in 3 weeks… This one… I cannot plan it perfectly… It sais “(it will probably take 2-3 weeks if you are starting from scratch)” But I dont c how… Maybe its just me but Im confused..

    • MJade

      I made a spreadsheet and a plan, if it works out, I ll post it here :)

      • MJade

        1) Covering Your Tracks->A Trace of Guilt->([Heroic 2] False History)->Smuggler’s Den->Landing Party, combining 2: “Diverted Mercenaries to the Volcanic Mesa” and “Planted False Data in the Tarlam Hall of Records”. At first it bugged but next time I logged, I had both.
        2) Inciting Incident->[HEROIC 4] Sharing the Blame->random->The Dissonance Wave->Eviction Notice->Local Trouble and I got both Dissonance Wave at the Cartel Mining Mesa & Terrified The People of Westwater Settlements.

  • yellow-power ftw

    I need only the “Unlock Bonus Objective “Tracing Guilt” in the Smuggler’s Den mission” and done it as in this page says 2 times and i didnt get the achievement… Do you miss something maybe?
