    Thanks again Dulfy for the guide :)

    While its disappointing that this is currently bugged i thank you for putting this up so i can get the rest in the mean time :)

  • Attoy

    Thanks Dulfy ;)

  • Roo

    Thank you Dulfy. It was fun figuring out the connections. :) Sad to know for sure that it is bugged.

    • Keeva

      Who knows, maybe patch 2.1 will fix it tomorrow.
      But they should put it on the known issues list at least, along with the Makeb Loremaster achievement.

      • Attoy

        That’s what I hope however they never admitted it’s a bug nor listed in the known bugs… :/

  • Kwich

    Please note that the a.m. is Republic only. Imperials have different set of dailies and combination.

  • Attoy

    *Regulars Diverted Troops from Gravity Hook Four Docking Ring to the Cartel Mining Mesa

    sadly is still bugged

    • Ancaglon

      Indeed. Got the message from Jace but no update (after 2.1).

  • Renee Evans

    I have not been able to get to the Brakan Mesa on either faction.. did I miss something along the way?

    • http://dulfy.net/ Dulfy

      Brakan Mesa is the one south of Aboros Mesa if I recall

      • Renee Evans

        It is directly below Hutt Stronghold (on pub map). I can see where the area is but there is no speeder to get to it and no quick travel point there.. is the same on my imp map. I’ve completed the story lines on both sides and can’t figure out how to get there. Is the only thing I need for 100% map complete.

        Any Ideas?

  • Manos

    Excuse me but you say go to stage 1 then to stage 2 then back to stage 1?! Can you go back and forth between stage 1 and 2?!

    • http://dulfy.net/ Dulfy

      This is not meant to be done within a single week. It may take several weeks for you to complete them all so plan accordingly knowing that once you pick 3 stage 1 missions and complete them, you have to wait until next week for more stage 1 missions.

  • DaduHulk

    Organized to get all done as quick as possible.

    Run #1 : Stage (1) Too Close, Reverse, Into The Fire, do Reallocation (bonus) during interlude, then Signal, Taking back and Hostage. This run nets you 6 sub-achievements.

    Second run : Among the rubble and any other two Stage 1 missions, then Door to Door, Hostage Rescue and Stone and steel. This run nets you 2 sub-achievements.

    Last run is Operation Overwatch (bonus!), H4 Vipers ad H2 Counterstrike. Nets last two sub-achievements. This is where the bugged one is, so you might want to wait. ;-)

  • Mulokhai

    They didn’t fix this achievement yet?

  • Gustav

    Any knows if

    Regulars Diverted Troops from Gravity Hook Four Docking Ring to the Cartel Mining Mesa.

    is still bugged? Because there’s no way I’m ever doing Operation: Overwatch again if it’s not for the achievement… :P

  • Mulokhai

    “Regulars Diverted Troops from Gravity Hook Four Docking Ring to the Cartel Mining Mesa”

    Will be fixed in 2.2.3 (at least thats what the patch notes say)

  • Joen93

    Had to do “Determined that the Perekta Mesa is Seismically Stable” again after patch 2.2.3.
    Regulars Diverted Troops from Gravity Hook Four Docking Ring to the Cartel Mining Mesa has been removed though.

    • Ancaglon

      Well, at least it’s finally done…. :)
