THORN Priority Authorization


  • Zenight

    Ah crap, so they removed the X-bows? I really like them way more then the ones from the Bounty Association and was the only reason I was looking forward to this event…

    • Pak

      I thought the bowcasters (I assume that’s what you mean by x-bows?) were from the chevin race or whatever that second event was.

    • David P.

      This event never had cross bows. That was the Chevin event.

      • Zenight

        *Facepalm* I was missinformed then, oh well guess I’ll make do with the ones from the Bounty association…
        On the plus side I get to skip this event!

        • gua543

          I don’t see the plus side of skipping an event with rakghouls.

  • Mumakil

    So none of the stuff from the last event, crystals, other companion customization and i will guess that the DNA canisters will not be tradeable or legacy bound. Hopefully more will be added just like the last rep vendor got more stuff as the PTS got closer to the end.

    • Companion customizations are returning, the infected ones are the old ones.

      • Mumakil

        ah, i guess i should have waited a few minutes since your still updating.

      • Eric

        I’m just glad that you actually get to pick the customizations unlike the last event where it was totally random. But I am currently rocking the infected Corso Riggs, Andronikos, and Vector. Looking forward to grabbing some more. 🙂

    • Alex G

      And looking on the Rep Vendor, Both the Infected and Plagued Companion Customizations are legacy bound, so WOOO there!


    Lame customizations for companions. Devs really out did themselves this time lol. This game is a joke.

    • Alex G

      Well, what a deep and insightful comment…

    • zetascorpii

      I actually like them!

  • Spiriah

    Still no (Imperial) Containment Officer? 🙁

    • Not on vendors unfortunately, could be added later.

      • Ancaglon

        The original Containment Officer sets weren’t on the Vendors anyway, you got them as optional rewards for doing each of the Missions as they unlocked. If the new missions work the same way I’ll be happy (especially since I have had the Republic set since the original event and didn’t have any Imperial characters high enough to get the Imperial set at the time).

  • Francis Turner

    Hmm the only thing I really like from this collection is the lightsaber rest, as for the rest I’m not so keen on

  • Medel A

    The event is for characters level 55 or 50?

    • No idea, event is not active on pts yet.

  • PunkHooligan

    No info about date of event ?

    • Nope

      • Rumena

        They said someday in January!

  • Naffnerf

    Much reuse and recoloring. The Sniper Rifle couldn’t be uglier. Ugly shape – now in a brand new ugly color.

  • GLaD

    Really tired of all the weapon and armor re-skins. 🙁

    The plagued companion skins are cool, but but what’s insulting here is the fact that the Treek customization costs more than the others. Damn, Bioware… you already charged us either 2100 CC or 1,000,000 credits for Treek, and now we gotta pony up more comms for a customization? Given that Treek is a pay-for companion, her customization should be either less than the others, or FREE.

    • Alex G

      People will complain about anything, won’t they…

    • BrianDavion

      treek is a “prestige” companion GLaD the pricing is designed to reflect that if you have treek you’re proably a legacy elvel 40 vetern with a ton of money.

  • darkfather

    That armor and most of those weapons are UGLY. But, nothing new there. I dont get how Bioware actually thinks most of this stuff they release is even worthy looking at let alone making. Real ugly stuff. And, where is the black/green crystal? 🙁

  • Raistling

    Am I the only person who thought “wow, that really looks like the gree armor.”? Cant wait to see what special skins you can pick up for galactic starfighter for this event.

  • tommythepower

    Like the companion looks, but i hupe they put some better armors etc in the store as the best event deserve some really awesome stuff,also some fun things would be nice.

  • Luis Rosado

    Besides the color, the blaster pistol looks SIIIICK. Like the comp customizations.

  • bleeters

    Those rakghoul infection customisations for companions creep me the heck out D: Infected Yuun is the stuff of nightmares.

  • NoName

    Infected Khem Customization? Nope?

    • Chakra

      Khem is so badass that he doesn’t get infected by rakghoul plague…

    • y2z

      Would Khem really look that much different? XD

  • Pros

    What happened to the pink THORN set?

    • y2z

      The pink set will go on the cartel market when the event goes live. Probably limited time like the gold scalene set.

  • SirRobinII

    hey could you post a photo of the Outbreak Response Blaster Rifle with more 3D perspective ?

  • Oscar Enrique Miranda

    GREAT blaster! great companion customization if u want a walking dead friend

  • Phira

    Aaaaaand no chrystal?? Damn :v

  • Yindaka

    So any knowledge on how Rakghoul DNA from the old event is compared to the new Rakghoul DNA cannisters, is there like a token exchange possible? I ask this because I’ve kept on about 91 Rakghoul DNA from last event.

    • DRAKO

      So far it is being promoted as a ( difrent event ) than the original I worry for you 🙁

    • Ancaglon

      Any information on whether these Cannisters will be tradeable (or at least Bound to Legacy)?

      The original DNA was tradeable. I can’t recall whether the Chevin Scavenger Hunt “Token of Enrichment” was tradeable, but most other such event “currencies”, with the sole exception of the Gree Event’s Gray Helix Components, have been fully tradeable.

  • Sudald

    Will there be any black green crystals?

    • DRAKO

      Where is the lightsaber crystal and how about some legacy Off Hands finaly we have more than enough mainhands at this point that quite frankly look allot !!better!! theres nothing here I will be grinding for !!

  • Aelix

    The glowing eyes effect on the infected customization items are gone! now they all look like joiners. Maybe it’s just the previews? hopefully it doesn’t affect the current ones people have 🙁 (also infected Skadge but no Torian? pffftt)

  • Sanjay

    OMG! BOL relics that are not alignment based and usable at levels as low as 25! I am totally buying those.

    • AbnerDoon

      Agree that is awesome. I have toons without relics due to being neutral. This is a nice change won’t have to sweat grabbing the shards now to make them.

    • Naffnerf

      + Presence


      Useful for lone wolf leveling… otherwise they are useless.

      • Sanjay

        Presence would certainly be helpful for “lone wolf leveling” as well as low-manning flashpoints and heroics. Also, the endurance would be helpful for the above plus regular flashpoints, heroics, and even warzones. These stats are an improvement for those who otherwise do not equip relics while leveling because of alignment neutrality. The BOL feature is even more awesome! I agree though that there are many better choices available when running ops at level 50+ and for endgame pvp, and that these relics would be pretty useless in GSF 🙂 .

  • Naffnerf

    Are the infected customizations similar to the old ones? The ones from the first Rakghoul Event had glowing eyes. Those here look like the companios didn’t get sleep for a week.


    • TravisR

      They most likely will, my infected customizations from the old event never showed the glowing eyes in the preview.

  • y2z

    Are there any effects on the sabers? Like gree ones have?

    • y2z

      Just checking out youtube video with rep items. Doesn’t look like anything will have an effect on it. Might change when it goes live… hopefully.

  • Guest

    I’m so mad there is no Doctor Lokin customization! 🙁

    • Naffnerf

      And no Risha.

      Stupid BioFail!

      • iceberg265

        Stupid NaffFail!

    • Ancaglon

      Eh. But Lokin is already “Infected”…

    • David P

      There is an “Infected” Doctor Lokin customization on the Security key vendor at the Illum Orbital Station. It has the glowing white eyes and everything (it’s pretty sweet).

  • iceberg265

    There’s really nothing here that I want, but then, there’s really never anything I want from other rep vendors either…oh well. EDIT: Actually those relics would be pretty freaking awesome for leveling…too bad I pretty much already leveled up all the alts I want.

    • Chakra

      Yup, sure is a shame they don’t make any rep items specifically tailored to your (apparantly very narrow) desires.

      Oh well, I’m sure that if you hang in there and wait, some item will pop up somewhere that you’ll deem “good enough” for your attention.

      • iceberg265

        I’m not sure where you got any of that from my post.

  • TJWoo

    Looks like this event will be live this week. Hooray!

    • Possibly 🙂

      • TJWoo

        Developer Tracker reports “Reports of animal attacks increasing among Alderaanian forces. Killiks ruled out. Investigations ongoing”

        • TJWoo

          Maybe next week :/

          • I am thinking this week actually.

            • Taft

              Alderaan 2588, 158
              Weird place for a “Sanctuary” if you ask me 🙂

              Matches up with min 2:27.

      • Ancaglon

        They’re continuing to “build” the story via the Forums, Twitter, Facebook – so my guess is that either it’ll go live on the weekend, or after the reset on Tueday 21st.

  • Kubrickian

    This was supposed to be the event where you could obtain the black/green crystal. Looks like a huge oversight on their part. I’ll pass on the green guns and zombie skins.

  • the one

    so glad E.A. didn’t release the black/green crystals again. thanks for not slapping us founders in the face!! 🙂

    • iceberg265

      I am also glad they did not bring the stuff from the last event back. But it would not have been ‘a slap in the face’ if they had.

      • the one

        Maybe not to u, however some of us founders cherish the fact that we were here to get those rewards and other event rewards that r now extinct. The rarity and desire for rewards loose their luster if u know an event is “returning” at some point in time. Its just nice to see E.A. not caving to the players complaining about not having something because they weren’t around for it, at least not yet. But all is not lost. U can still pick one of the old black/green crystals up from the gtn for 2 mil or so.

        • iceberg265

          Can I actually slap you in the face so that you can tell the difference?

          • the one

            I see your anger surpasses your intelligence Ice. Oh well, thanks for the info dulfy I cannot wait until it goes live!!!

            • iceberg265

              Facepalm…We’re on the same side, idiot. I just think you are ridiculous for using the term ‘slap in the face’.

    • Zanteera

      I’m enjoying the black/green crystal I bought on the first day of this new event.

    • Secundum

      …They did.

  • Disqus this

    We still need a couple legacy items like shotguns, shield generators and knives. Those items need to get made and put into the game.

    • Agreed, something is needed for offhands.

      • Disqus this

        Currently we can only move OH barrels? Thats all as far as I can tell.

        • Yes, only barrels atm due to offhand pistols etc.

          • Feartheswans

            However the OH Barrels are bound to Pistols and cannot be used with the Knives and Shotguns. Sentinels/Marauders Have it made.

        • Feartheswans

          You can also move Saber hilts in both main and off hand when using the gree weapons.

          • Beasthunt

            True but one thing that gets me is how they locked the offhand hilts from being ripped off a vendor bought item. No matter what you do, you cannot put it in a main hand saber, unless I have missed something as of late.

            • Feartheswans

              I put an off hand Verpine hilt into a gree Lightsaber and am swapping around between my Sentinel and Marauder. Along side my Underworld Main hand in another gree saber.

              • Beasthunt

                Yes you can swap your gree sabers around as much as you want. Like i do. I have a maruader and a sent that I swap gear with. The last time I checked, which was a few weeks ago, I think. You cannot buy an offhand saber from the vendor, rip that hilt and put it in the mainhand saber. You can put it in, but then that saber becomes offhand only.

    • jagermensch

      More fun would be something like a dye packs and non-removable color crystals that made any item legacy-bound, and that required, say, Legacy level 45 and Legend standing in five or more reputation categories. Price them at 300CC each and they would sell pretty well I think. 🙂

    • Beasthunt

      Yes, legacy offhands would be lovely. Almost too late for me now though.

    • Secundum

      Those exist in the Gree Event. Legacy knives, shotguns, and generators all.

  • ASAP reply plz

    Does the legacy gear have any sort of animation, or is that only with the THORN sets that are going to be sold on the Cartel Market?

    • no animation that i could see, only the CM ones has it.

  • Knopperz

    Somehow i am less and less impressed with the Stuff they implement 🙁
    The Weapons look boring, the Armor Sets look 0815 rediculous…nothing to strive for.
    The Companion Customizations are pointless, because Armor covers the Look anyway.

    I wish they would bring something like Transmogrify…and redesign the Crafting in the Game.
    My Heart still bleeds when i compair this with the old SWG Crafting System…
    Redesigning the Daily Hubs would also rock, because you simply dont do them anymore once you got full reputation. We need more Options for Endgame, more fun Things to do.

  • George Blair

    Armor looks like SCUBA gear.

    • iceberg265

      You know, it kinda does.

  • Trogdor

    I like the new armor and weapons. The armor looks good for an agent. The only one I don’t like is the assault cannon, but they’ve given us a bunch of cool looking cannons recently.

  • Jack Smith

    Thanks for the heads up Dulfy. Too bad a lot of this stuff is repleted ugly garbage =/

  • Jeremy Marr

    It’s official: The event started about 30 minutes before the server went down for maintenance. It’ll be back up (hopefully) at 8AM EST.

    Incidentally, two of my characters are already infected.

  • Kikuya

    Just wondering if the old containment armor pieces from the last event are ever coming back.

    I was wondering since i want the sharp dresser legacy title. I only managed to get the republic containment officer set, but then i sold it because i didn’t realise they would eventually make event armor bind of legacy. 🙁

    • Secundum

      Nope. If you didn’t get them, then that achievement is gone forever.

  • KingMarvel

    How long does this event last? I’m a little slow & want to get some of this stuff.

  • Czech

    Can someone here answer my question? I hit Hero standing with THORN awhile back by saving the reputation tokens I collected. I decided later to go to Nar Shaddaa to purchase the Treek customization on one of my alts that happened to have 13 canisters. I am not able to purchase it. I am able to buy other companion’s but not Treek. I am preferred status btw… Thanks for any feedback!

    • Hmm that is really odd, you have Treek with you on that alt right?

      • Czech

        Not on this particular toon….im guessing your going to tell me I need to spend 300K to buy Treek in order to purchase the customization. 🙁

        • Ya, unless you have another toon with Treek with 12 DNA canisters? the customization themselves are bind on legacy

          • Czech

            Yes I do. I was just saving them on my main for the next event to buy the mounts. Thanks for the feed back Dulfy.

            • Np, if you happen to be on harbinger, message me and I can give you 300k credits if you need 🙂

  • Dookus

    is there a vendor for the mounts outside the event time?

    • TJWoo

      No. Jeelvic sells the mounts and disappears when the event ends.

  • Secundum

    I despise the fact that there is an achievement related to getting a rare drop from the Eyeless…Which you then have a miniscule chance of actually getting, and you can only fight him so many times. It would be better if they made it a certain drop.

  • Kiri

    LAME. Ugliest shit ever

  • Mister Arrogant

    So is the THORN rep vendor always available in Nar Shaddaa regardless of whether the event is active? Also, it says he’s near the GSI vendor but I don’t know where he is either? Promenade?

    • Yes the vendor is always there regardless of event being active or not

      • Mister Arrogant

        Thanks, Ms. Dulfy.
