Place holder

  • Acolyte of Fear, there is a 1 % chance for the Harbinger of Fear to spawn instead.
  • Acolyte of Fear has 50k HP while Harbinger of Fear has 160k HP. They all have massive knockbacks that can push you into the lava and kill you so put your back against a wall when fighting them.
  • Acolyte of Fear can drop the helm as well but has a much lower chance to do so.

Spawn timer

  • ~ 5 minutes

Loot

  • Hallowed Gothic Helm (bind on legacy, requires champion reputation). It was removed from the Oricon reputation vendors and put on this rare spawn instead.
  • This helm drops from both the placeholder (Acolyte, low drop rate) and the rare spawn (Harbinger, guaranteed drop).

Special thanks to Theho of T3-M4 for providing the information!

  • Zalla

    It’d be cool if the boss also has a chance of dropping HK customization

    • Jimmy

    The Harbinger spawned for me after 3 Acolyte kills.

  • scionfall

    This helm makes me want to roll a toon named Serpentor.

    • Lânnister

      i second that. you have to make the dye color light green though

  • Telanis

    Just had about 10 spawns of exactly 4.5 minutes.

    • Mortúùs

      Same, 4.5 minutes.

      • Telanis

        Ha, I saw you out there! Hi.

        • Mortúùs

          I got the hat today, it’s pretty dumb looking though :p

  • Lord Zalla

    Dulfy, will you be posting a guide to getting the lore achievement for oricon?

    • http://dulfy.net/ Dulfy

      Yes it will come a bit later in the day or tomorrow as I am a bit busy pre-occupied with other stuff atm.

  • Dauros

    This is ugly. why would anyone want this?

  • Cleopatria

    Bastia Lore ITEM: x -183, y 489

    • SirRobinII

      ? can you give more information about it ?

  • Magnus

    Just killed the Harbinger. Dropped the ugly hat. Nothing else.

  • Magnus

    Dulfy, can you ask Swtor_miner where they have relocated the HK Watchtower White customization? D=

  • Aleksey314

    It is supposed to resemble cobra’s hood, I guess… But yes, pretty ugly.

  • Matt

    It is actually a 4:30 re spawn timer :)

  • Luste

    Just got Hallowed Gothic Helm off a Acolyte of Fear

    • Techno-babble

      I just had this happen as well after about a half hour of waiting

  • Jessica

    I have had two guildmates get the helm from the Acolyte, so it looks like there is a small chance of getting it from the placeholder.

  • Randor

    Just to confirm, I also got the Hallowed Gothic Headgear off of an Acolyte placeholder today.

  • Guest

    For tho

  • Chad

    For those that remember, it looks like Teela from He-Man if you ask me

  • Rompe

    Well 4 hours later and a ton of Acolyte kills, not a peep from the Harbinger nor was I lucky to get any drop from the 4 hours worth of Acolytes. :(

  • Maalkirii

    Got it from the Harbinger after 6 or so Acolyte kills. Judging by the other comments I guess I am lucky :P

    • person

      same here

  • Tco

    I have been farming this thing off and on for a few days now almost 20 hours in total and still no luck, did they reduce the chance of getting it since last week or something ?

  • Mer Vila

    I´ve farmed this one 4 hours in a row one night; nothing-
    Today, first kill, and it dropped.
    Now it´s bound to legacy, I wonder how can I get “copies” for my alts, or do I have to farm it again all over?

    • http://dulfy.net/ Dulfy

      Farm it all over again :(

  • Exiledspirit

    I came out and was doing the dailies, happened to be around about 4 times when the Acolyte popped up and each kill netted me a helm, guess I got lucky.

  • Fredrik Bull

    Can it drop even if you are not champion rep. yet?
    And if it can, can you pick it up still

    • Runnos

      yes and yes, but you cant equip till you have the rep

  • Tom

    if you want to look like MikeyMouse, this helmet will be great.
