A Kindly Old Monster (Dr.Lokin)

Prerequisite: Acquired Qyzen as your companion. You can only have one alert from a recruiter at  time so you must complete the Qyzen one for the Lokin one to show up since they are both from Beywan Aygo.

  • Rakghoul event must be active as you need access to the Rakghoul tunnels.

Steps

  • Find and Speak with Eckard Lokin
  • If you attack Lokin during the intiial conversation, you will get a chance to reject him as a companion at end of the mission once you return from the Sarlaac Pit.
  • Bring Lokin supplies until he reaches Influence Level 10 (10k influence). Agents can skip this part but will need do the Rakghoul tunnels and the rest.
    • Anodyne Extract x24 = 300 influence
    • Metamorphic Cell Cultures x24 = 300 influence
    • Hemostatic Gel x20 = 300 influence
    • Autoimmune Regulators x12 = 300 influence
    • Rakghoul DNA Canister x1= 250 influence
    • Exotic Plague Specimen x1 = 500 influence
    • Barnacle of the Eyeless x1 = 4000 influence (can be only turned in once)
  • If you are going to the Anodyne Extract/Metamorphic Cell route, you will need 800 of them. Otherwise you will need 666 Hemostatic Gel or 400 Autoimmune Regulators or some combination. Jawa scrap vendors in the Cartel Bazaar are a good way to acquire them if you have the scraps.
  • Once you reach Influence rank 10 with Lokin, he will ask you to head to the Rakghoul tunnels, which is only active during the Rakghoul event (Nov 10, Dec 15 and Jan 12 are the dates of the next 3 Rakghoul events)
  • The four probes you need to deploy are located on each of the 3 maps of the rakghoul tunnels. Beware that the last map is a heroic zone and killing the rakghouls there may spawn the heroic mobs that can kill you very quickly. If someone has already deployed the probes at your location, you can just wait for them to finish and everyone gets credit for it.

swtor-a-kindly-old-monsterswtor-a-kindly-old-monster-2swtor-a-kindly-old-monster-3

  • After that head to the Sarlaac Pit in Tatooine, it is in the northern section of The Dune Sea. Once you deploy the probe, it will say to collect the Recovered Specimen, which isn’t there for some people. If that happens. relog to character select and log back will fix it.

  • Havik79

    So in order to get Pierce/M14X you have to PVP, that is not right.
    For Lokin you need to do the ghoul world bosses?.
    Thanks for the guide.

    • For lokin you need access to the rakghoul tunnel to plant some sensors and yes Major Pierce/M1-4x require you to pvp unfortunately.

      • Larry

        It’s not much pvp, but a pain for the auto sixties. Lokin is going to be way more annoying to get for me I bet since I am not going to was a barnacle on him.

        • There is actually an achievement worth 10 pts if you waste a barnacle of the eyeless on him lol

          • Havik79

            But don’t you only get those eyeless from world bosses?, I never done ghoul event, didn’t want any of the gear.

            That really sucks, I hoe you do not need to win PVP, I hate pvp.

            • strongy

              i totally agree, i hate pvp

  • Aeden

    Dulfy you’re a machine. After everything you put out yesterday and now this. Wow! You must be exhausted but thanks from all of us. It’s def appreciated.

    /respectful bow

    • Got one more on star fortress 😀 Should be it out in a few hrs hopefully.

  • Vladimir Kievlyanin

    Scion’s Lower Robe? are you serious?!

    • What about it?

      • Vladimir Kievlyanin

        He doesn’t wear lower robe, so that’s the worst thing Bioware could do with his set.

        • jo

          Different scion.

          • Imperial Salesman

            Besides, the one he’s thinking of is spelt “Sion”

        • zenight

          “Scions” as in the faction in Zakuul, not the sith lord.

  • Bantherny

    Small issue with one of the quest (just this one so far) Death before Dishonor seems to be bugged out at the point where you investigate Site 12. I am not the only one seeing this either as many others seemed a little lost and waited around for a good bit trying to figure out what to do.

    • It was bugged for me too but relogging seem to have fixed it. It is a bit wonky

      • Bantherny

        Ok thanks. I will try that and let you know if it works.

      • Bantherny

        Yes logging out and then back in and it lit up for me. Thanks a ton. I hope they get that fixed soon though.

  • jo

    Finding costumizations for cross faction followers seems like a pain. Event and cartel ones are easy enough, but I wonder if they’ll make it so we can get the security key and vanilla customization vendors too. Imp fleet has an awful lot of identical astromechs now. (Prayers for costumizations or at least changable outfits for Lana too since they’re are a bazillion of her wearing the same dorky suit)

  • Chyron HR

    Is it really required to recruit Yuun to access every other companion, or can the Findsman mission be completed without being forced to have a chittering bug on every single one of your characters?

    • Yuun is required but you don’t have to summon him. Can just keep him forever in the companion and contacts page.

      • strongy

        kinda like locking him in a ratakki mindtrap thing then lol

        • Holyfrog

          Or that new containment cage deco.

  • Cole

    Huh, I kinda figured we’d get a beast npc in story, but nope. Seems odd that the CM Akkdog would be the only way to get a new feature of the game, maybe I missed a mission or something

    • Unoshi

      Nope. For now the CM is the only way to get a beast type companion

  • Chris Riches

    Why on earth is story “content” locked behind a PvP wall, there are many many people who have never set foot in a warzone.

    • MouseNo4

      I dont even know what a warzone even is.

    • DLM3

      That’s serious BS from their part. It’s like they are working hard to piss their player base with that kind of retarded choice.

    • zenight

      The worse part? Those who *do* PvP will sunddely find themselves surrounded by newbs who avae no idea what they are doing in WZs.
      I have Valor 50-60 on most of my characters already, the one who don’t I really don’t look forwards to getting M1-4X, the WZs are going to be pure chaos…

    • Holyfrog

      Yeah most of my alts won’t get those comps as I have only done PVP on 3 and I’m not sure if any of those are rank 50, and one of those 3 is a Jugg, so that PvP thing sucks.

    • Unoshi

      Reminds me of wow legendary cape pvp requirement…. At least… A lose or a win still counts with a win counting for 2

  • MouseNo4

    Is it unwise to refuse to recruit any of them? Any negative impact at all?

    • Rachael

      The only one you have the option to refuse is Xalek. You can either let him go, have him join you, or kill him. I decided to kill him. I hope by doing that, it’ll give me an option later to recruit on of the other force sensitive companions like Jaesa, Kira, etc.

      • MouseNo4

        Yeah so far. We dont yet know of the other companions. For example, is it possible to accidentally – without ever knowing it – kill Jaesa or Kira. Completely inadvertently through dialogue.

        What if the option to recruit Skadge, the number 1 most hated companion, and through dialogue you accidentally recruit him!

  • topperharly

    ADMINS!!!!! i am a warrior and pierce joint me right away, pvp rank was 17.

    • MouseNo4

      Likely the way it is. If you are the class the companion comes from, you get them regardless.

  • Chrane

    I accidentally refused Xalek, and now I don’t think there’s any way to get him to join me again? He’s the major reason why I play Inquisitor, and now I’m kinda pissed haha

    • Chrane

      I would love to hear if people have some insight on this

      • Daniel

        sorry i cant help you with this (game has been patching litterally all day now…) but can i ask is it obvious that u will refuse someone? and can you do the usual press esc and do over or do you have to be more careful.

        • Chrane

          I had either “Come back to me as an apprentice, you scrub” or “I’d like to see you more as an ally than an apprentice.” I thought I was being respectful, but apparently not

          • RenegadePM

            Same… I guess we should have been dicks.

      • Brioli

        If “choices matter” you may be out of luck. I haven’t gotten that far yet though.

    • Rachael

      I murdered the prick. Never liked him anyway.

      • Chrane

        D:

  • Noomi

    Is there a dailies area on Zakuul or any of the planets as well?

  • Kirsty-rob Farrell

    How do i get arge jorgan back or Elena drone back

    • Holyfrog

      Who are those people?

      • Unoshi

        Hahaha c’mon, don’t be mean.

        • Holyfrog

          Lol I was just going to correct him but can’t remember if it is spelled “Aric”.

          • Unoshi

            Haha i think so. .. Man hope story lets you recruit Scourge at some point. Two former wraths

  • Becca

    “I believe if you are Sith Warrior trying to recruit Major Pierce or Trooper trying to recruit M1-4x, they will join you right away without the PvP/Valor requirement. If someone can verify it that would be great.”

    Confirming for Trooper, Valor 36.

    • Eddie Dexx

      If u got 10k influence on him prior to KotFE story so yes

  • Upsetgamer

    Will you get your class companion back when you done with the chapters or you have to do this stupid thing to get the old once back?

    • strongy

      you have to do “to find a findsman” to be able to get anyone else back its a prerequisite.

      • Upsetgamer

        Cheers.

        • strongy

          no problem its confusing because it doesnt say this isnt it 😛

          • Upsetgamer

            Dont really know what it says 😀 Got a bad habit now a days i just throw out my questions and there is always a nice soul that answer them. 😀

  • Baogo

    You also get some mount(s)? Out of the the boxes you turn in for rep. I just got a Zakuul taxi mount.

    • Some Random PUG

      Okay now THAT should have been on sale on the CM instead of the Zakuul Dropship.

      • Unoshi

        Lol and then have people complain. Why that is on the cm…

        With your reaction I’d figure you approve of it’s model so isn’t it better its free-ish rng base

  • zenight

    Dang, I really don’t care for any of those companions, is it safe to assume you don’t get access to other companion alerts untill later chapters?

    • Joe Bauer

      same here, i wanted to wookie with my sith

    • Holyfrog

      I wanted Jaesa, Kira, Ashara, and Vette for my BH’s harem.

    • jaydog

      From my understanding, you can gain additional companions via Star Fortress missions, i will have to test it out to confirm (soon as the servers let me back in lol)_

  • Finkenfarn

    Is there any info on the other companions? I put a lot of effort into maxing their Affection before launch. Would be a shame…

    • Unoshi

      Somse can be recruited via terminal at soms point , though story wise you probably will need to wait for chapter 10+

  • Sarah Anderson

    I believe if you are Sith Warrior trying to recruit Major Pierce or
    Trooper trying to recruit M1-4x, they will join you right away without
    the PvP/Valor requirement. If someone can verify it that would be great.

    VERIFIED DULFY!!! Did this on a Sith Juggernaut who’s never done so much as a single PvP match and was able to instantly recruit Major Pierce.

    • Unoshi

      Cheers

    • rphillipps16

      Can confimr, same with Trooper/4X

    • Thanks for the confirmation 🙂

  • Nothematic

    Weird, I’ve got valor 100 and can’t get Pierce instantly..

    • moonball

      You have to talk to him again after picking up the “complete warzones” quest.. took me way too long to figure this out.

      • Jakk Frost

        Thanks for that, been spending the last hour trying to figure out why my rank 49 wasn’t enough. It would help if they put a “quest complete” marker over his head…

  • Crow Evans

    I got Xalek on my Sorc but he isnt showing up in my companion window? Anyone else have this?

    • Unoshi

      It’s a known issue

    • prdc

      I am having the same issue.

  • burrito

    Consulars can get Qyzen without hunting all that stuff, just bypass quest

  • Unoshi

    Locking certain companions behind certain events or activities is bs. The pvp and Rak event. It could have simply be kill x champions or elite rep/imp npcs and visit taris or any rak invested place.

    I recon they didn’t expected people to burn through those chapters so fast.

    • Holyfrog

      Now we know why the Rak is a monthly event now. It is bs.

  • Batorr

    Can someone help me, i unlocked Choza Raabat by completing alderaan star fortress but i cant summon him “for story reasons”, i am playing Bounty Hunter, is there a way to get him to summon.

  • Kephesssss

    I have found the following to be true as it pertains to the locked supply crates:

    Beywan Aygo only drops TROOPER or WARRIOR legacy gear

    Hylo Visz only drops SMUGGLER or BOUNTY HUNTER legacy gear

    Juvard Illip Oggurobb only drops INQUISITOR or AGENT legacy gear

    Sana-Rae only drops KNIGHT or CONSULAR legacy gear

    • Kephesssss

      Source: ‘purchased’ over 60 crates and I am at rank 20 influence w/ some of the alliance folks. These drops have been consistent in terms of class and have not deviated from the pattern listed above.

    • Thanks for this, I will add in this pattern

    • Unoshi

      Cheers

  • Has anyone tried to exit the story before while Marr is a companion? Is he summoneable in the old world?

    Same for the new HK. Miffed at the whole thing there.

    • Batorr

      I have seen someone on the imperial fleet with the new HK, not sure about marr though but i guess he will

      • I could see people stopping progression on an alt just to have Marr or HK as permanent comps!

      • Meelis S

        Only way is to stop doing some chapters to avoid losing HK-55 but not possible if you want to finish all chapters.

    • Kephesssss

      Yep, I have Marr as a companion. I have a lot of toons so I probably won’t finish the story on some in order to keep him.

      • Unoshi

        Hahaha thanks I totally will do this.

  • Tygur

    They drop some cool stuff in those boxes. I got a Zakuul Taxi mount in one.

  • Brioli

    Great guide as always!

    I haven’t dug into the content yet but am curious if I’m maining a Trooper and hope to get remnant items for a trooper, the only current way to get Locked Supply Crate: Military Equipment is to complete Stalking the Score?

    Or is there another avenue for those locked supply crates I’m not seeing?

  • Oc

    Can you upload pictures of the new gear?

  • Esva

    Any news on what to do in the “Gearing Up” Portion of “The Star Fortress” yet ?

    • Turn in the supply crates etc to them. Turn in 5

  • Liron Ben-David

    SCIONS ARMOR !!! YES!

  • Ai

    can you get deciever/revanite armor from the remnant legacy armors too?

  • Bagern

    What are the mounts that crate can contain?

  • Andre

    So I hace to do all the nine chapters with all my toons to get my companions back?

  • Andre

    So I have to do all the nine chapters with all my toons to get my companions back?

    • Theminiature Painter

      you dont get all of them back
      at least yet, and u cant customize the new comps, such utter f’ing fail bioware

      • Hearo

        Oh shut up.

        • 島風

          Way to contribute. How about taking your own advice?

      • Unoshi

        Can’t customize them in gear appearance or their skin color hair etc appearance ?

  • sifo

    Something is not clear for me, sry if it is a noob question.
    I wanted to start the new content today but got a warning about Im beyond a critical story point and I may lose companions, so I decided not to start.
    So the question: If I start with one of my toon the content this will effect on every other toon in my legacy even if I dont start the new content with them?
    Hope I was clear enough 😛

    • Rondowar

      It only affects your current toon
      You will not loose any companions until a few minutes into the story
      Apart from the ship droid, but good riddance there ;p

    • justpassingby

      No it won’t affect other toons.

  • Avonrea

    M14x on rep side is the Booming Vocoder for Freedom

  • SupRun

    Is the Scion gear BoL?

  • Horton

    I understand you lose your companions — at least at first — when you start the new content. Are they only gone while playing the new content? Like can I still pull them up when I do old flashpoints, heroics, etc.?

    • jaydog

      There is a way to pull old companions back for regular playing, but it is currently bugged

  • Horton

    I thought I read a while back that once you start the new content, the old content is no longer accessible for you. (Makes me think of Ziost and how once you progress to a certain point, you can’t go back.) Can anyone confirm… what old content do I lose access to once I start KotFE?

    • David Thor

      its laid out in several post on this site. in a nutshell for example zoist. you mentioned the first portion if you didnt do it before accepting the KOTFE class mission you cant do it after. you can go do zoist dailies but that first portion is already default done. same for SoR flashpoint chain, chapters 1-3 (1-50) quest, companion missions several other things im forgetting.

      • Horton

        Thanks… I’ve been keeping relatively close tabs on this site over the last few months, but I don’t recall seeing anything like a definitive list of what’s lost. Even looking back through posts now, I only see general language that “some things” will be lost, but not a lot of specifics. If there’s a post someone can recommend to me, I’d be thrilled.

        • Unoshi

          They said it in blogs and stream, maybe you over looked it but the bottom line is a level 60 boost character which automatically starts with kofte story and any other normal Char that accepts kofte story will have all other previous story as complete. That include class story, makeb, oricon, SoR and ziost.

          I’m not sure if planet story is included

  • Gelious

    Hey Dulfy! I just want to let you know Loken also receives Rakghoul Canisters. (I had 19 left from the first and only time I did that event). You can give only 1 Canister at a time, and each Canister worth 250 points.

  • Dread Master Ozariah

    A question. I helpt to Xalek and asked him to join my alliance not as a servant, but as an ally. Does it mean i rejected him as my companion? ’cause i don’t see his name in my contacts and can’t summon him.

    • Matthew Spagnoli

      There is a glitch with some companions atm.

    • Chrane

      It’s bugged. Are you playing an Inquisitor?

      • Dread Master Ozariah

        yeah

  • 島風

    So wait, some classes lose all companions and some get 2? Why?

    • Secundum

      because there are still 7 chapters left is why.

  • Matthew Spagnoli

    Hope they don’t do this for all companions (at least not for the romance ones).

    • BrianDavion

      proably not all of em, unless there’s a hidden romance with T7 I don’t know about. I imagine BW’ll bring in the right companions for the main story, while also trying to ensure romance companions aren’t left in the wind.

  • Lms

    This games getting so gimped. Yes all your comps can do any roll.Nice but not needing gear with their augments wasted now.. with no reimbursement ,for time and creds spent on loss of gear. Great stuff EA PoS.

    Soon as sub is up of this card as, already paid for. And let me spend money on treek awhile ago.. before switch to say.. only one roll.. for A PAID SIDEKICK.-,
    !,, Sit & Spin.
    Lost me and my recommendation forever.
    New story and other little touches, nice, but not enough to gimp my hard work. To keep me soon as bought and already time is up. Going the way of HATRED, one of the best guilds in the game.Or was!

    • Alex G

      Ok, bye?

    • BrianDavion

      you realize all that hard work on gearing your companions woulda been obseleted the minute you loaded into game if they had just done a standard level cap raise right?

    • Unoshi

      If they had kept the standard way of mmo it still would have been made absolute. Since you would need new augment, new mods/gear. So either way nothing change. It’s funny how people always forget when something change its different but the effect is still the same but they just have to bash it.

      Regardless the only thing I will miss are the uniqueness the companions brought with skill, socially Treek and switching stances on the go, HK with his smoke bomb and roll and sniper knife tactic.

      On the other hand companions last longer now.

    • Holyfrog

      Well thats what you get for paying to play with Treek. If you would have just done the work in game instead of going the “cheat” route you wouldn’t be out any cash. At least that’s the way I see it.

  • Sugarfloodwave

    Reset Timer on the Trophy pray seems to be 5 – 10 minutes

  • Sugarfloodwave

    Sorry my bad – its a 15 Minutes Timer on the Trophys on Hoth! Highmount Ridge is the best place with 6 Targets close to each other.

  • Cade Calrayn

    So no sign of the other five recruitment missions that are currently in the game’s text files (which I won’t specify for the sake of spoilers)? Or have those just require higher Influence level than has been reached yet?

    • RenegadePM

      Have to do the Yuun mission first…

  • Skurhink

    So, how do i recruit Gault, Mako or any other non inquisitor comps?

    • Micklanis

      Well you wait to see if they are recruitable in later chapters.

  • Mark Tyrone Chia

    And this is how EA makes us regrind again. This time to get back some of our companions.

  • LorgrenBenirus

    More companions will be added in later chapters.

    What I would like to know is if there’s any limit to companions/allies, or can I theoretically recruit every single one? Not that I would recruit all of them of course, some I don’t like and some I’d outright shoot in the face, but most are OK and from all classes, so if there’s no limit I’d add most of the companions to my list.

    • Unoshi

      Depending on which character I play I might or might recruit all either.

  • Yarazin

    Any news on Kira? If I cant get Kira back then I will curse Bioware’s name 🙂

    • Unoshi

      Not at the moment. Perhaps in future chapters. Theres a terminal that lets You recruit companion per classes that havent show up yet.

      They still can make an appearance in future chapter’s so i wouldn’t worry worry

      • Yarazin

        Thanks. I just hope we don’t have to wait too long. This could be a massive gut punch to use who are really emotional (or crazy) about certain companions.

        • David W

          I imagine it would especially suck for people who married their companions.

        • Phil Wells

          We’ll find out tomorrow I guess, but they did say in one of the streams that your old companions will be given back to you, so hopefully they’re all out there to get back – just not all yet available for cross-class recruitment.

      • Jess

        What Terminal?

        • Unoshi

          Relocate companion terminal but is bugged atm

      • iceberg265

        It doesn’t work.

        • Unoshi

          Yeah caught that in the big report. Well either way that’s the terminal you need for comps that didn’t show up story wise.

  • JeremyR

    People wondered what the content would be after they finished the story. Now we know, we grind for companions.

    Ugh. This is going to be a nightmare on multiple characters.

  • Bagern

    I accepted Xalek… As sith inquisitor, but i cant use him…Why? Also That mystic said that Xalek arrived 🙁

    • Bagern

      Älso, cant speak to Pierce….

    • gamz247

      It’s a bug that they’re looking into, with no ETA on when it’ll be fixed.

      Now I’m wondering why they decided to make it so you have to wait 2-3 weeks to acquire Dr. Lokin.

    • Ben Davis

      so i am having the same problem but i choose to not have him kneel is that problem or it is the bug just curious

  • Attoy

    Is it me or finding Creatures Worthy of Jagannath is a pita? What’s the supposed respawn timer?

    • 30 mins?

      • gamz247

        I think it’s less than that. I’m sure it took me less than 2 hours to get 20 of them. Just keep going north and south along that Highmount range.

        And don’t bother with the Legendary Wampa!

        • Sugarfloodwave

          I took the time its 15 Minutes Respawn Time

          • Master Kenth

            its less, around 10minutes, but its much more better to kill the world bosses than this … one monster gives u 500 affection, world boss token 3500 … at least i had it like that 🙂 5 monsters + 4 WBs, job done with rank 12+ 🙂

            • Dace Hawke

              I killed 13 Jagannath targets, and 1 world boss. Took me less than an hour to get Qyzen.

              • Dace Hawke

                Now I am trying to get Mr roboto, but my server doesn’t PvP much (Even though it’s a PvP server) so getting matches takes a while.

      • Sugarfloodwave

        15 Minutes! Do it in Highmount

    • Baogo

      I got in a group to do this and we basically hit 4 different zones and it took about an hour but we were able to get all 20 pelts

  • mrburke

    Is Dr Lokin in yet? I’ve done all the Alert quests/recruitment, but haven’t received a quest to go find him.

    • gamz247

      If you’ve acquired Qyzen Fess, you should have gotten an alert to speak to Admiral Aygo.

      • mrburke

        Thanks I’ll check again. Maybe I’m losing my mind. What about Scorpio? I see her on dulfy’s influence page, and she joined the crew when I met her during the chapters, but she doesn’t show up for me as summon-able companion.

        • gamz247

          Just speak to Admiral Aygo anyway. Maybe he’ll have something for you.

          I thought I saw SCORPIO as a follower, with the subtitle “The Expansive AI” or something like that, but I don’t believe I’ve tried to summon her after finishing Chapter 9. I won’t be able to check that until later today.

          • mrburke

            Thanks. Talking to Aygo worked. SCORPIO though is definitely not on my follower list at all. I am playing an Agent so I’m wondering if these two are just buggy since they are original companions.

            • gamz247

              Sounds like the same bug that’s happening to Inquisitors with Xalek.

              • mrburke

                That’s what I’m thinking. I”m betting they are suppose to be a separate category on your Follower window if they are your original companions. (Like they are before you start the Expansion) and that’s just not showing up.

  • Sugarfloodwave

    Anybody figured out what C2-N2 wants after you have done his mission? He wants some Materials but not sure which ones.

    • gamz247

      From what I remember, it was:

      6 Adaptive Circuitry
      12 Biocell Memory Core
      24 Ruusan Crystals
      24 Farium
      24 Anodyne Extract
      24 Metamorphic Cell Culture

      • mike

        4 Adaptive Circuitry
        6 Biocell Memory Core
        8 Ruusan Crystals
        8 Farium
        8 Anodyne Extract
        8 Metamorphic Cell Culture
        8 Molytex

  • Reiver

    I can’t find anything on Jaesa, I needs to know if I need to romance me a new bitch or not because I’m married atm. Anyone know where my wifey be?

    • gamz247

      You can use all your Courting gifts on Theron in the meantime. *shudder*

      • Reiver

        yeah, do you like our choices? On my sorc its either the 2 dudes, Taylor Swift or the Milf. im ready to suck on a blaster and end my torment

        • gamz247

          Hm, I could’ve sworn that Courting gifts were showing “Large Influence Gain” yesterday when I had Theron as my companion. Now it’s nothing. Why doesn’t anyone want to love me?

  • Ivo Karadzhov

    How can I recruit Qyzen if I’m a Shadow?

    • Reiver

      new rules…old way of thinking gone in the story arc. Things all mixed up now and all the hot female toons are gone :/

      • Ivo Karadzhov

        Weird, because in the guide it says:

        You can bypass the steps below and recruit Qyzen right away if you are a Consular since Qyzen is a former companion.

        • mrburke

          Did he give you a different conversation choice? Or is he saying the same thing as he does to everyone, that you have to recover trophies?

          • Ivo Karadzhov

            Yeah, I have to recover trophies. The interesting thing is that my influence with him is rank 8 and I think he needs rank 10 to be recruited, which means that I have to do just a few world bosses, not all of the, I guess…

            • gamz247

              You don’t need to kill world bosses, either. There are Ice Cats and Wampa around that will drop trophies for you to give him.

            • strongy

              you only need 3 world bosses to get him from 1 to 10
              my consullar got him back instantly though.

        • Samantha Adams

          I did. Continue with the conversations, eventually the very bottom choice will be to bypass and recruit him instantly.

    • gamz247

      You’ll receive an alert to talk to him on Hoth. You’ll then collect trophies for him until his Influence level is high enough, and then he’ll join you as a follower.

  • Night

    Im having a problem with the quest for Nico I’ve got my ingredients and the little umbrella but i can’t seem to be able to mix it

    • gamz247

      I did not put the little umbrella in the drink, and he will never forget it.

      Is the object on the bar not there? I had problems interacting with objects in other quests (Xalek in particular), and logging out and back in fixed it.

      • Night

        Yeah i had similar problem with xalek and logging out helped i tried it this time and nothing. I reset the quest and even abandoned it. Still nothing

      • strongy

        the little umbrella its at the end of the bar in the drink

    • Koen

      click on the shaker

      • Night

        Yeah i press the mixer and it says something along the lines of “you can mix the ingredients up picked to make a drink” “however you need at least 3 ingredients”

        • Ivo Karadzhov

          Click on 3 random ingredients ( they should disappear ) then click on the umbrella ( make sure you click on it ) and then click the mixer. That should do it.

  • Boseman001

    Problem with Loken reputation, not working as intended? While submitting Anodyne Extract and Metamorphic Cell Cultures for influence……I got rank 6 and then points reset? Influence reset to 1. Am I missing something?

    • It is buggy, you don’t lose the mats though. Just do it again

      • Boseman001

        You’re right. No mats lost, albeit a small pain in the rump. Thanks Dulfy.

        • Ton

          Can agents bypass for Lokin?

      • strongy

        the other alliance chars do this with supplies too, you just have to click [thats all for now] option and it saves it

    • pwnznoobs

      so you got to rep lvl 10 and thats it? cant complete till the event?

    • strongy

      if you dont click [thats all for now] it resets you dont actually lose anything just make sure you click finish and it will credit the rep.

  • Sindariel

    When you recruit Qyzen, you can turn in more trophies than actually necessary to gain more influence with him. This way, you can easily push him above lvl. 22, if you do all world bosses and save tons of companion gifts.
    This only works BEFORE recruiting him.

    • David W

      Interesting. Though i suspect i won’t have the patience to do that 😉

  • Ironheart

    Will ‘old’ appearance mods work on ‘new’ companions now?

    • David W

      If you mean for example that Treek’s customization works on Treek 4.0, then yes I confirm that works—but you will have to reinstall it because it seems to be thrown back into the inventory with all the other companion gear

    • Phil Wells

      Only the Treek and HK customisations are currently bind to legacy, as far as I am aware, or at most any added since 3.0. Everything else is still bind on pickup.

      I’m really hoping they go back through all previous ones and make them legacy bound as well, especially T7. I’d like to put my CE customisation on him.

  • Skurhink

    Do you get the reward if you bypass the mission?

    • strongy

      yes you do.

  • Yarazin

    In the Nico quest, why does my Knight act like he knows Nico already and vise versa? He said, glad you remembered the umbrella. How would my toon know? Just from reading history books or have I misses/forgotten something?

    • Alardd

      He says while you are mixing that don’t forget the umbrella, you prolly missed that. Then he’ll love you when you’ll actually use it in the mix. Nothing to do with story here 😀

      • David W

        Mine didn’t say to use the umbrella, but I luckily had the tip from here

  • Bagern

    There is achievement with lokin- if you give him- Barnacle od eyeless- you get 10 achievement points 🙂

  • Exandrus

    I have valor lvl 40, and it still wants me to do the 20 matches. =(

    • BrianDavion

      return to 4K and you’ll get the option to basicly tell him “I’ve already killed lots of imps you’re coming with me!” your you have valor 40

  • Uwen

    Do lock supply crates drop anywhere or do we have to way for the next chapters to get more.

    • Sindariel

      You get them for doing heroics on any planet.

      • David W

        So, no soloing in other words? Not really thrilled with that

        • You can easily solo a lot of them, did so myself today on Tatooine.

        • Sindariel

          All heroics can be done solo. They’re freaking easy, now.
          I could do most of them without a companion, at all.

          • David W

            Good to know. Which brings up the question: Can the Heroic 2+ Star fortress missions be soloed? Because I just discovered that the solo version doesn’t count.

            • Sindariel

              Yes. There’s even an achievement for doing them solo.
              I’ve soloed 2 of them as a DPS sorc myself, so far.
              Some of the elites and champs hit hit like a truck though. So, i’d suggest taking a healing companion.

              • David W

                Thanks! 🙂 I thought I hit a brick wall here. Let’s hope a Watchman sentinel works as well as a Sorc.

              • Ben Gimson

                Set your companion to heal and you literally never lose health. It’s insanely easy, just takes ages to kill the baddies.

  • Uncle Touchy

    Hey Dulfy, just thought you might want to know something peculiar about Qyzen. When I handed him the trophey for Battledroid R4-GL, I LOST 7000 influence with him and he lost several influence levels. You might want to put a warning in there about droid bosses.

    • Darth Twinge

      I thought influence isnt supposed to go down. only change. Maybe it’s bugged?

      • Uncle Touchy

        I don’t know, but I know for a fact that I lost -7000 influence with him and his dialogue said something about “disapproving of unnatural hunts”.

        • Seph

          Did you give him the trophy then press Esc instead of ending the convo with the proper option? If you pressed Esc it resets but you get the item back, check your inventory special items

    • Logarth

      You have to complete the conversation by selecting the end text. If you escape without doing this it exits the conversation, removes the influence it granted and gives the trophy back. I was in a panic before I realized that.

  • pduggie

    One of my commander’s share boxes had a Zakuul Speeder mount in it. Its really big, and noisy.

    • Errtai

      If you mean the Zakuul Taxi one, I got one too. Big but can’t say noisy. Looks cool though.

  • sangrer

    Be careful when submiting to lokin/qyzen if you end conversation after submiting items using esc, conversation will reset and you will have to give all the items to them again. You don’t lose those items.

  • David W

    So there seems to be several quests where you need to raise up influences to 10, and those quests seem to require groups (Qyzen, Choza). So, maybe I am misunderstanding things, but it seems like those of us who are solo players are rather limited in unlocking these companions.

    Am I going about this the wrong way? And if not, am I effectively screwed when it comes to the remaining chapters?

    • Dace Hawke

      No, Qyzen can easily be done Solo, just hunt 20 Jagannath.

      • Livestick

        That’s hardly easy, considering how infrequently they spawn.

        • Dace Hawke

          Go up in the mountains, they spawn all over and decently often, an hour or two tops.

          • Livestick

            That’s what I’m doing. It’s been almost 4 hours and I’m only halfway there.

            • Dace Hawke

              Idk,it took me like half an hour to get 13.

  • Sozinho

    I received a mount from a box, it is a Roche Scyk.

  • Uwen

    There appears to be at least 2 more sets of legacy armor. I have gotten Remnant underworld for smuggler inquisitor and agent. I have gotten Remnant Resurrected for Inquisitor and agent.

    • Jonathan Parker

      I think there’s a set for each of the previous sets of commendation gear. I’m getting gear for all classes that ranges back all the way to Black Hole sets. I really love this, since I can finally get that armored coat for my Agent.

      • Bryan

        It’s great but they need to give us more legacy storage options to hold them all.

  • Mike

    Doctor

    • Mike

      Just talking with the pvp companion don’t seems to get the doctor mission up. Must hunt on Hoth too for the other companion

  • Jonathan Parker

    So… No Elara? Damn it, Bioware! Where’s my wife?! She said she was coming for me!

  • Corvus6

    I picked up Yuun, Nico, Talos, Xalek, and Pierce, but the Lokin mission hasn’t appeared.

    Wat do?

    • Jo

      I think you have to do the lizard man one first.

    • Errtai

      You must first get Qyzen.

    • jaydog

      Nico for some reason does not count as one of the PreReq….still not sure if that’s a bug or not.

    • Dark Edge Gaming

      Yup. You definitely need to recruit Qyzen first, it’s not just a “4 Alliance companion” requirement.

  • Dave

    For Qyzen…do 3 world bosses…it is the easiest way.

  • Solar1808

    Found another Worthy Jagganath target at -3462, 1318 in Icefall Plains.

  • Ironheart

    wish companion skill ui window had info on wep types they can use now, like for instance “lady of sorrow” has something completely different…..
    maybe on tues….

  • Rob

    for Xalek, imp’s need to avoid the green arrow. it goes into a pub base. head to the bottom of the map http://i.imgur.com/LAdHwB2.jpg ty darthpuyang on Reddit site

  • Sarah

    Since you cannot turn in less than 24 of an item to Dr. Lokin, you will actually need: Anodyne Extract/Metamorphic Cell route: 816

    • Siby

      Rakghoul DNA Canister (obtainable from rakghoul event) gives 250 influence per item. You can hand them over limitless amount.

  • Andrew Sowers

    So Guss tuno is hiding in Nar Shadaa. “Shiny Jedi Man” in the Club Vertica Foyer. Any ideas/news on if he’s recruitable? I’ve got 20 rank with the force enclave so that’s not it. Hmm. I’m relatively sure that there’s a way to get him this round just because they probably wouldn’t add him in this patch if he wasn’t. Maybe a certain rank with Force enclave and smuggler’s. Would like to hear suggestions/news if anyone has any.

    • Ygnox

      maybe wait to finish the Lokin’s quest .

    • Valenjinn

      I found tuno also there, near the event vendor. I think is one of the companions the terminal bugged doesn’t allow you to get.

  • Lanae

    Hmm interesting. So a Sith Warrior gets to bypass that stupid 20 PvP matches because it is a SW companion. Yet I do not get the same option with Lokin even though he is my Agent’s companion?
    Also why does PvE content now suddenly force me to go do PvP? I am sure PvP players will be delighted to see me AFK camp 20 matches just to get this companion sorted. 🙁

    • It’s a reward for trying out warzones.

    • jaydog

      If you are an agent you automatically get 10 influence and and thus bypass having to get all of the mats like everyone else. You just have to do the second step which is ridiculously easy to do. You just have to wait until the event.

      Comeon, did you really think it would be that easy to get them all (companions) at launch xD

    • Holyfrog

      You can’t AFK PVP matches. You you be killed then when you don’t leave the safe zone in the alotted time you will be removed from the match.

  • Ygn

    anyone know what il the Treek hidden achievement? I know for Xalek and Lokin hidden achievement but i cant find for Treek. (sorry english)

  • Ben Gimson

    Anybody know if the Remnant gear drops include Dread Forged stuff? I’m gone through scores of them and nothing, so I’m guessing not 🙁

    • Sindariel

      Opened dozens of supply boxes and didn’t get a single Dread Master, Dread Forged or Kel Dragon piece, yet.
      But tons of ugly Yavin and Arkanian armor… >.>

      • Ben Gimson

        Eh, crap. Well who knows, they might add them in later.

      • Ancaglon

        Pretty sure Kel Dragon and Dread Master won’t ever drop like that — maybe from the actual NiM Operations. Dread Forged probably should, but isn’t.

        • Lyraine Alei

          Not available anymore, unless you go through the 1-60 path.

    • Sayaendo

      I’ve got several Dreadguard pieces if that counts… Underworld and resurrected as well

      • Ben Gimson

        Oh? From the alliance supply crates?

        • Sayaendo

          From the ones I got back from the Allaince Specialists, yes. Let me check to see which pieces…Dreadguard: Inquisitor, agent, knight, warrior, and trooper.

          • Ben Gimson

            Nice, I’ll have to keep an eye out for that then.

  • TheWillock

    Another Jaggnath target in the Whiterock Wastes: -3309,-1488

  • TheWillock

    And another at -3308,-1633

  • So if I collect Pierce, do I automatically get M1-4X as well or is that a separate quest?

    • jaydog

      Pierce and M1 are faction specific. So yes they are two separate quests.

      • But isn’t the whole point of the Alliance missions that there are no longer faction-specific companions?

        • jaydog

          Not necessarily. You must understand, Bioware has always maintained that everything they do has to make sense in the realm of Story.

          For example, Dr Lokin is an Imperial Agent whose sole allegiance is essentially to himself. Which is why his “story” alliance wise is for him the player to aid him in curing himself. He will aid (and reward) who ever aids him regardless of Faction.

          In the case of Major Pierce, he is, and has always been a diehard Imperial who still sees the Republic as a major obstacle. So storywise it would not make sense that for a Republic Player to be able to recruit Pierce. Especially since Pierce is only recruitable on Dromund Kaas (a planet that only Imperials can visit).

          It is the exact same with M1-4x who is quite literally programmed to fight the Empire lol. This is why their missions require PVP.

          All within the realm of story,

          Apologies if i typed too much. It’s a habit lol

          • Having not played through on my Knight yet, I’m curious the justification for Xalek helping out the Republic.

            • jaydog

              He is a Sith lord (no longer an apprentice) he can ally who ever he friggin wants to lol.

              That and depending on player choices, you can earn his respect. (by combat)

              Rule of the strong. You kick Xalek’s ass you are deserving of his loyalty.

              • jo

                Hoping more of the companions will follow the Major’s line of thinking. Quinn should be imp only, Jorg and Corso pub only, etc. I’d love player choice to effect companions more such as having to pick between Torian and Akavi. It would be great if come January the choices we made were a little more significant story wise. It feels like most of my decisionsthis far were immaterial. Bowing to the Emperor? Seems to change nothing so far. Surrendering to Arcann? No biggie, his old man will pick a fight anyway. Hopefully the repercussions will come in the next chapter.

  • B

    I found another Worhty Jaggineth target on highmount ridge further North. (-757, 154)

  • Firnon Zodd

    Hey, I was going to do C2N2s mission for this week, but he said he needed supplies. Do I just give him locked supply crates or what?

    • McNooberton

      if you click to give supplies he asks for adaptive circuity x4 , farium x8 , molytex x8 , metamorphic cell culture x8 , anodyne extract x8 , biocell memory core x8 , and ruusan crystal x8… those mats are required to do the weekly for c2n2 hopefully dulfy will update the guide

      • Firnon Zodd

        Oh, so just gathering skill stuff. Cool. Thx

  • noobsshadow

    I’m confused, do we ever get all our previous class companions back or not. I could have sworn they said in the blog that we wouldn’t lose any companions permanently. But during the early access I did several class stories til there were no new quests. And characters like Vette are still mia.

    • Firnon Zodd

      Well there’s the console thing in the commander’s quarters where you can get them all back instantly. The decline option text for it suggests that all class companions will be unlocked as the story progresses, either in the story itself or as alliance recruitment missions

      • Harold

        This. And some companions for example Khem can’t be recruited in any way so far. They are probably tired to something important in the story or undergo some changes. that won’t be revealed yet.

  • Sindariel

    Did they change the inflicting comfort weekly to a one time quest?
    Because I can’t do the mission again, this week. Instead, I have to turn in some crafting materials to C2-N2.

    • Ignis Parsinus

      I’m assuming those materials are what he uses to make the things you give to the alliance captains, since the first time he just had some spares lying around now you have to get him the supplies to make the stuff and
      he’ll distribute it automatically.

    • Holyfrog

      I can find anything about what the mats he wants are. It’s just a some random stuff, it says I’m missing some but not what they are. Anyone have a list?

      • Holyfrog

        Never mind it’s below.

  • HollyC

    I’m not sure if it’s been posted here or not, 277 comments is a lot to sort through haha. Imperial Agents don’t have to turn in bioanalysis supplies to Lokin, they get to skip straight to the Rakghoul Tunnels. Of course, you still have to wait for the next Rakghoul Resurgence event to start 🙂

    • Viv

      Same thing for Qyzen and the consular, you don’t have to fight world bosses and all that.

  • Aricin

    @Dulfy
    Not sure if its already been posted, Major Pierce (and assume M1-4X) continue to gain 500 influence with each PvP match played. Don’t know if its a bug or not and its 500 win or loose.
    But, for those of us that pvp regularly that’s roughly 2000 free influence a day if you do all your dailies.

    • Stalker1

      This should really be a thing with Hk-51! really makes sense imo.

  • Randy Johnson

    trying to figure out why i dont have scorpio as a companion even though others do she shows up in some stuff just not my companions and constacts window. finished chapter 9 and still do not have her in my list and didnt make her mad so kinda stumped as to why she isnt in my crew.

    • Dimius

      I also don’t have her, and i’m an agent. It’s stressing me out man.

  • gog

    Haven’t seen it mentioned here (or I missed a comment), if you recruit Qyzen by doing jagganath targets, you can group with others and you all get the trophies. Makes the competition less of a pain since you’ll only compete with players of the other faction that way.

  • Sarigar

    Yuun and Tanno Vik can both equip either vibroblades or techblades. I tested it last night. Not like that opens up huge vistas of customization, but it does add a little variety.

  • Powerhead

    “Nov 10, Dec 15 and Jan 12 are the dates of the next 3 Rakghoul events”
    does that mean that Gree and Rakghoul events are becoming monthly?

    • Rakghoul is monthly, not Gree

      • Caliyesca

        Bounty week is monthly, not Rakghoul

  • j’oe

    guildie got a speeder from a supply crate reward
    it is called Roche Ice Cat
    said its from Sana-rae share crate

  • Luke

    Need some info on this if anyone has tried. Lets say i didn’t complete
    my main class story & left out getting my last 2 Companions. Then i
    start KOTFE till chapter 9 and use the companion terminal. Will i
    instantly get the other 2 missing companion? The whole Companion thingy is so messy now.

    • Look

      Will probably be compelled to complete the class story before you can start KotFE.

  • Nissana

    The supply list and influence is not correct for some pieces of Dr. Lokin…
    Correct: Anodynex24, Metamorphicx24, Hemostaticx20, Autoimmunex12 = 300 influence
    Correct: Exotic Plaguex1 = 500 influence
    Incorrect: Barnacle of Eyeless is not an option
    Additional: Rakghoul DNA Canisterx1 = 250 influence
    Additional: Symbiotic Fungal Bloom = 2,000 influence

    • Jason M.

      Barnacle of Eyeless is definitely an option.

      You must have it on your inventory to see it on the list though.

    • Ancaglon

      Ahem. I did turn in a Barnacle of the Eyeless and got 3k influence.

      • Ancaglon

        Sorry, 4k.

  • Erdag Ahmet Yilmaz

    I used the umbrella for Nico Okarr’s mixed drink but still didn’t get that achievement for using an umbrella. So buggy. 🙁

    • James

      Wait, we were supposed to use the umbrella, oh well.

      • Erdag Ahmet Yilmaz

        Yeah, then you get a special progress.

    • sentientomega

      No achievement for the umbrella, the achievement is for getting Nico after Chapter IX, and not through that device you get in the mail.

      • Erdag Ahmet Yilmaz

        I already knew that. What I meant is you do a different kind of progress if Nico Okarr recognizes that you used the umbrella in the end. 🙂

        • sentientomega

          Yes, he approves if you do, and disapproves if you don’t. 🙂

          So, as you can imagine, I reset the mission. 😛

          • Erdag Ahmet Yilmaz

            True, but resetting was buggy back than, happy that that is possible for Nico Okarr now. 🙂

      • Erdag Ahmet Yilmaz

        I know. But you can make a specific progress(at least in the cutscene) if you use the umbrella in the end.

  • Satyriasis

    What are the hidden achievements for Xalek, Lokin, Treek and any others i missed?

    • Ygn

      Kill Xalek (50pts) , kill Lokin and one other with lokin but we need wait the event.
      And for Treek , nobody know for the moment…

  • James T.

    Is it Necessary to Recruit M1-4X and Qyzen Fess?
    PVP and World Boss hunting is Boring as hell.

    • Qyzen is required for lokin

      • James

        So, basically I have to piss away my fun on PVP and hunting world bosses.

        • Johnny Casul

          You poor thing…

          • Erelas RyAlcar

            With travel the way it is now and a decent group (better a guild) then you can have Qyzen to the level you need in an hour, not a big deal.

            • James

              There in lays the problem.

            • Sayaendo

              Took me under two hours to kill the 20. It would have been less if competition for spawns wasn’t so high and if I hadn’t stopped to take care of some RL stuff while hunting.

            • Bryan

              I did Qyzen by killing the 20 mobs, took about an hour also, just a little more boring/grindy.

        • Bryan

          You don’t have to do anything… If it’s that rough don’t do it. That simple.

      • SupRun

        Couldn’t you just get Talos, Nico, Forex, and Xalek? That would be four.

      • Ignis Parsinus

        I hope so. I have all the comps except Qyzen and Lokin and was wondering why I haven’t gotten the alert for Lokin yet.

    • Laf-Oh

      Hm. No it isn’t, you just don’t like it. I asume you would prefer killing some trash mob instead. And that’s boring as hell.

      • James

        If you knew of what you state, you’d
        Have never made the comment.
        Sense, you have idea who I am,
        Keeping your opinion to yourself is
        Recommended.

        • another shitter

          go back to dodging red circles shitter…stay out of PvP.

  • Incognito

    Anybody have the same problem of the Forgotten Trophy quest/alert not showing up?

    • Scorpio

      YES!!! This has been bugging me. I’ve got all companions now (minus Lokin… soon… so soon…) but The Forgotten Trophy quest/alert has never shown up for me. Anyone know what the deal is?

  • Sayaendo

    Has anyone else noticed in the companions section of legacy that some comapnion names are gold while others are green and still others cyan? Most of the ones I know are recruitable are gold – Lokin, Qyzen, T-7, Scorpio, etc. Exception to that are Pierce/4X and Talos.

  • Sayaendo

    “Upon reaching Influence rank 6, you will receive another set of quests rewarding 20 Common Data Crystals, 10 Glowing Data Crystals and 5 Radiant Data Crystals per Alliance Specialist at rank 6.”
    This is incorrect. I just tested it. I had Yuun and Talos at rank 6 before getting to rank 6 with Dr. Ogurrobb. When I took the quest from the datapad and turned it in, I got a flat 20/10/5.

  • Kodar

    WTF? Anyone else trippin’ cuz other ppl can just say “hello” and recruit? While I get to a damn grind mission during a event to get my Dr Lokin back??

  • Pui-Pui

    Is the recruitment done once account wide or do you have to unlock everyone again with another character?

    • Jha

      Unfortunately it isn’t legacy wide. So going to be a grind for all of us with a heap of Alts….

      • Pui-Pui

        hey thanks for the reply. Alright hopefully SWTOR can make it faction wide for characters at least.

      • Ancaglon

        Actually and personally, while I do intend to recruit all the companions on my main, I don’t intend to get all of them on all 22 of my characters; since you can only send 6 out on Crew Skill missions, plus one to run with, I can’t see any mechanistic advantages to getting all of the available ones. (You will have 6 from rank 10 companions from the Star Fortress local support guys, plus the ship droid).

        • Bryan

          Agreed. The only thing I’d add is on an alt I don’t care much about I’ll probably to go through and do most of the kill/reject companions for the achievements.

  • Nyanpasu

    Ok, so if i am consular, warrior or inquisitor i get my companion back instantly. But if im agent, not only i dont get my scorpio back due to the bug, but i also have to get lokin doing quest like every other player. And evasion is still not fixed. Nice.

    • jo

      You only have to do beacons in the tunnels part. You don’t have to farm items to give him which is the long part.

  • Konoha the Wiper

    How do you buy companion customization’s for companions originally belonging to other faction? For example, I get Talos on my Sage but I want him “Talos Customization 6” for him. The Vendors only sell companion customization’s for companions of your faction, and the ones I looked at recently were BoP so it isn’t possible to transfer them over.

    • jo

      I hope they add a cross class costumization vendor at the Alliance base soon or at least a boat load of CM customizations.

    • Kalarn

      If you have an opposite faction character and a stronghold you can buy them with the faction that can get to the vendor then drop them in your stronghold vault to retrieve on the right character.

      • Konoha the Wiper

        Bind on pickup, you can’t.

  • j’oe

    also from crates, you can drop planetary displays

  • jo

    Any way to kill or reject Qyzen, Yuun etc. maybe later we’ll get more choices in who we keep. So far Xalex and Tanno are the only ones I’ve found killable.

    • Ygn

      and Lokin soon apparently

  • sentientomega

    Frankly, we should be able to buy Valour 40 for CCs, but have it show when we’re inspected that we bought that much Valour for the coins.

    • L2P scrub

      too scared to take an ass whoopin in a vidya game?

      • sentientomega

        Not really, I’ve already done it; for PvP, it’s way too grindy though.

        I’m guessing you’re a PvPer, judging by both your attitude, and your eager willingness insult people.

        • takeachillpill

          what is it with pvpr’s and hate? It’s like part of the game for them…

          I’m a hardcore GSF’r and we’re not like that by and large. It’s just the WZ types…

          • Varak’sas

            I dunno. I love pvp and I love people telling me I’m bad and this is what to do to be better. You don’t want to PvP with people who tell you “u suck” or “Why can’t you defend? Idiot.” These people are (usually) bad at PvPing and poor teammates. Though to be fair, SWTOR probably has the least toxic community out of any game I’ve ever been in, if not a bit silly.

        • Chuck

          Seems to me the problem with PVP is it brings out the MMO L33t gaming crowd. Too much troll rage and not enough love for Star Wars

    • Ancaglon

      20 matches won’t take anywhere near as long as getting Valor 40 does, and you can pick up conquest points toward your personal total (for the Strategic Resource Matrix, sells for decent money even if you don’t need it for crafted items) if you do it over a week or so.

      • sentientomega

        Well, seeing as I just did it, it took several hours; I’d reduce the requirement to 5 matches, so that not too much resentment is created between PvEers wanting the companions, like me, and those among the PvPers who hate the rest of us anyway.

        • Ben Gimson

          Tbf, most folks in warzones aren’t going to care as long as you try. Had a guy join the Alderaan map the other day and he just hid behind a rock rather than actually help. I called him out just in time to vote kick him from the group, fortunately, but that’s the kind of self-serving thoughtlessness that creates resentment.

          Don’t do that and it’s all good (and I don’t agree with the warzone requirement either, even though I have the valor rank on most of my characters).

          • dawgbone

            I wish this were true. Getting sworn at for wearing PVE gear took exactly 30 seconds into my first PVP match.
            At least let me do it via GSF

  • sentientomega

    Whereabouts in the Rakghoul Tunnels do we get these Exotic Plague Specimens?

  • Rasmus Sundgaard

    Hey Dulfy..
    Some of the locations for “Death Before Dishonor” was before a location for an Enduring Tauntaun and a Gray mane, Elite mobs for the achievement “Ilum’s most wanted” Do you know where those mobs are now?

    • Ancaglon

      The Enduring Tauntaun is now just a little way west of that mining camp, still near the edge of the chasm.

      • Rasmus Sundgaard

        What about the Graymane?
        And thanks

  • Darkojin

    Valor 61 on my Guardian and still have to do the PVP missions to get M1-4X, so either I am bugged or there isn’t actually a valor requirement for that mission.

    • Bobby

      The missions works fine with valor of 40+. Did you speak to M1-4X?

      • Darkojin

        Did not think to try that, since it just gave me the Complete 20 Warzones objective. Just went to talk to M1 and had a chat option that said [Requires 40 Valor] and I got to skip the warzones requirement.

  • Diebo

    Seems my maths is failing me this morning – what’s the total needed to grind up each specialist rank + get all the recruits from the star fortresses?

  • Darkojin

    Found a Jagganath target near the WB spawn in Jagged Plains.

    • Darkojin

      Second one, North of Jagged Plains Imperial Outpost.

  • j’oe

    probably no one mentioned, but repeating C2-N2 weekly gives 1150 (500+650) influence with the specialists, and another 650 influence with the droid. It gives you the option to simply give grade 8 mats to the droid since he already knows what to do

    4x purple slice mat
    6x purple slice mat
    8x scavenge + archaelogy + bioanalysis mats

  • Which Comp?

    So I may have just missed this, but…

    If all the comps can perform all 3 roles now (HK a healer? really..?) then is there any reason to go around getting all the possible companions? Do any of them perform differently than any of the others? Is it purely aesthetic, or is there some functional reason to get them?

    Thanks.

    • ö2ä

      I don’t know why we now need a billion companions.

      Did anybody notice… nearly all of them are male. Only 5 out 20 new companions are female.

      BioWare is unablte to balance anything!
      Before 4.0 we had almost no new companions over years. Now we are flooded with them for no reason. And one is more boring than the other. They only know black and white. No companions at all, or a shitload of them. Why? All of them can do the same.

      Worst of them is that Idiot of Nico Okarr. What’s the point of that alcoholic and stupid fkcer?

      • pallytime

        You’re complaining about Nico Okarr and you’re posting like a drunk slob yourself. I’m just as, if not more disappointed in 4.0 than you are but… seriously… after reading this… I don’t even know what to say. Go back to League of Legends or Minecraft or whatever game you enjoy more.

        • Chuck

          Well said pallytime

  • Sarigar

    I’ve noticed that even though companions are supposedly “the same” in each role, some still seem to be better at certain roles than others. Pierce and HK-51 are good examples: HK seems to take a lot more damage as a tank, jumps around awkwardly a lot during combat, and generally does not keep enemies grouped or hold aggro well. Pierce is exactly the opposite on all counts. Both of them are at 30-31 Influence, so there’s not a huge variation there.

    I plan to do a lot more observation of this and see if it bears out across multiple companions. Anyone else noticed companions that tend to be better at their original roles than when they are in one of the alternate roles?

    • Darth Twinge

      I have encountered this as well.
      I have both Veeroa Denz and Lana Beniko at 19 influence. Doing heroic star fortress runs, Lana has a significantly higher survival rate throughout no matter what role either of them seem to be set at.

      This may or may not be an indicator that Lana is best suited for tanking?

      • dawgbone

        I’ve noticed the melee healers/tanks seem to be far superior to their ranged equivalents.
        I had Okarr and Beniko at 25 influence running star fortress heorics and I was constantly running into issues with Okarr (dying, nearly dying, etc). Beniko I don’t think I needed to pop my heroic moment once, with Okarr I had to do it several times.

        • Darth Ji’inx

          Tech healers seem to be weaker than force healer companions in terms of healing.

          • sentientomega

            And melee tech healing channels are bugged, they’re 25% healing compared to ranked companion healing channels.

            Compare Qyzen and Felix, Qyzen’s healing channel heal does that for 25% of Felix’s.

            • Darth Ji’inx

              You’re right. It could just be ranged vs melee. I’ve done fine with Nico (ranged tech), but struggled with a higher influence Qyzen (melee tech).

        • GameEntity

          If this is true, I actually like that there is some difference between the companions.

          • sentientomega

            Which defeats the whole purpose of being able to use whichever companion we want for any role, by making some companions decidedly unattractive. CS told me that melee tech-healing channel thing was a bug, anyway.

    • GameEntity

      I agree. Senya seems to be a far better tank than Lana, but Lana is kind of a better healer.

    • Echko_H

      I’ve noticed this too. Gosh, ask about it on the swtor forums and they’re adamant that all the companions are the same. But here were my findings.

      My second character through KotFE was my sentinel: I never had any high influence with my old companions (all of them under rank 4) so I teamed up with Senya – had a girl crush on her anyway. She’s now at rank 31 and excels at all roles – no problems or anything running Star Fortress and we rip through our weekly heroic quests.

      Now my first character through the storyline was my Sage – I teamed her up with T7 because of my abundance of technology gifts but the poor little guy kept getting crushed in our normal weekly heroic quest runs (this was at rank 35), we even struggled with trash in Star Fortress heroic. I switched to Senya and got her to rank 20 and everything is so smooth.

      My third character was my Guardian who leveled with HK so naturally I had hoped to keep teaming with him. But he was a messy tank, his dps was not even close to what it use to be and fights were too slow with him healing. So I switched to Lana because I was running out of Luxury gifts for Senya (lol) and she’s so much more better.

      A bunch of other 65’s I have that haven’t done the questline but we do heroics on:
      My Shadow Kinetic teams with Okarr (rank 10) and his dps and healing is OP but horrible tank lol. And my Sorcerer is with Ashara (rank 10) using her as a tank – she’s pretty good but her leap is a bit buggy at the moment.

      Yeah that’s pretty much it – I wouldn’t mind testing out Koth if only they had Artwork drop from those crate thingys.

  • Urza

    Just a note on the valor 40, you have to talk to him again to bypass the 20 match mission.

  • Cephsus

    On my JK i was unable to get “A Kindly Old Monster (Dr.Lokin)” after completing all Alerts except for the Trophy hunt for that lizard and the Warzone stuff. I did speak to both of them, but still didnt get any Alert for Lokin, bug?.

    • Guest

      You need to complete Qyzen’s quest before that will pop up.

  • Ry

    Is there any way to get back your original companions? I want to get Jaessa back on my warrior and Ashara on my assassin.

    • K

      There are quests for some of them, and eventually all of them when more Chapters are released. If you are impatient/don’t care about story then you can use the terminal in the Alliance Lower Base, it’s in the room with the quest turn-in item that you use at each Alliance rank gain

    • Kryonic

      There is a Map you can Right click on in the room where the Datapad is for extra bonuses when you level you your Specialists, wait for a little bit and you can get your companions back early

  • lordschmee

    A note on Lokin – you do not need to get him to Influence Rank 10 as an Agent. This isn’t marked on the page so it’d be helpful if you put it down. I just spent the past 2 days collecting Anodyne samples. Guess I can use ’em for another character. Or alternatively, just sell ’em for profit on the GTN.

    • Sozinho

      Yes, I visit him in my Agent, with empty hands because he is a former companion. No need to gain the rank if you already have it. Good note!

  • p4v7

    Good thing that I kept ten Exotic Plague Specimen in my cargo. I knew that one day they would be used for something new. 🙂

  • Nevarin

    About Lokin mission: After tossing the probe to the pit on Tatooine, and you can’t see any “specimen” to pick up – relog. Do NOT reset mission, since it will send you back to the begining of everything, making it take longer time to complete.

    • mike

      swap instance works as well

    • Darth Ji’inx

      Haven’t done this yet, but going to your stronghold and coming back works with the wall not being clickable for Xalek’s quest. Maybe it works here.

    • Sayaendo

      Or if you see the specimen but can’t interact with it even after your probe has returned.

  • Facepalming

    I killed Xalek for the achievment but he’s still in my alliance recruit’s list? Does anyone know if he can be removed?

    • Rachael

      As long as you don’t have the option to summon him, then you’re alright. Click on his picture and there should be an option in his biography box to transfer all his gear into your inventory to sell for a few extra credits. Even when they die, their picture will still be there, just like Darth Marr and HK.

  • sentientomega

    “Exotic Plague Specimen x1 = 500 influence”
    Where can we get these from?

  • Zwyx

    To Reject Lokin (achievement) : On the 1st conversation in his house on alderaan, attack him (he will send you some rakghouls and inject you the plague) and when you talk back to him after the Sarlacc tell him “What ! forgive you ? .. after This” and you will have the option to reject him.

    • Sarigar

      Does it give you the option to kill him?

      • RS

        SWTOR has only one rule: Don’t fuck with Dr. Lokin.

      • GameEntity

        I want to know the same thing. I want to kill that pretentious douche, so bad.

        • Sarigar

          I wasn’t given the option to kill him at the end, but it may require a different set of conversation choices.

          • GameEntity

            I want to kill him so bad!

          • Darth Twinge

            I had originally threatened him when I met him so
            mine had the option: {Reject Companion} “In Hell!”
            which I assume would have killed him. I didnt because it seemed like a waste after spending all the bio mats and time running around the tunnels and tattooine….

  • Oxy

    there is a other hidden achievement with Lokin ( 10 pts) , someone find it ?

    • Mike

      Probable for when we meet him again.

      • Zwyx

        Feed Scritchy: near Aygo in the hangar on Odessen you will find a box of food. Scritchy is somewhere in thé hangar, throw him the food. (do it daily 10 times)

  • Lugh

    Rakghoul DNA Cannisters are also available to get Lokin’s approval, at a 250 rate per Cannister.

  • j’oe

  • Darth Ji’inx

    @dulfy:disqus

    If I unlock Pierce on my Warrior or 4X on my Trooper, can I access Lokin without getting Qyzen?

    • Nope, gotta do Qyzen. The reason is that the recruiter is both the Aygo guy and you can have only 1 alert from him at a time.

  • Nathan Nash

    Is there a way to reject Pierce without having to go through the PVP bit? I don’t want him to begin with and I certainly don’t want to do all that PVP to reject him.

    • Alkuzar

      As far i know Pierce does not have n option to reject him, not 100% sure though, as i unlocked him on the second day of early access.

    • vin b

      abandon the mission or never do it

      • Miss Fortune

        If you don’t do the mission, you’ll never get another one to get another companion, which sucks.

        • vin b

          I don’t see why you wouldn’t, I had many offers for companions through alliance recruitment available at the same time as pierce. and getting him did not unlock any new ones.

  • GameEntity

    Seriously, can I kill Lokin instead? Please? Does anyone know? xD

    • Alkuzar

      No, but you can choose to reject him.

      • GameEntity

        Damn you, Lokin! xD

        • Zwyx

          I think you can only reject Lokin and not kill him. But they wrote the same text for Xalec “Kill, refuse or reject” since you can with Xalec

        • Bryan

          Since you didn’t help him with his cure, you kinda did kill him, just the long way.

  • Vergil

    You can alos use Rakghoul DNA Canisters to gain influence with Lokin at 250 per canister.

    That Qyzen mission needs circles for Jagganath areas, no player here is an actual hunter; so we need some kind of proper ingame mission, not just a hit-and-miss-random-respawn mechanism of frustration.

    • Sean

      There is a glowie right next to Qyzen; if you click on it, you get a pop-up for a holodocument describing areas where the Jagganath targets can be found.

      • Miss Fortune

        But it doesn’t stay in your quest log so you can review it. You have to return to Qyzen each time to review.

        • sentientomega

          Here’s an idea though, take a screeny of that text that comes up.

    • Amodin

      Your Valor for recruitment is irrelevant. You would obtain the recruitment quest for him through your Companion Window, and would be sent to speak to him. Then he would tell you to complete 20 warzones. You would get him after that completion.

    • Sean

      It appears that any companion you had previously returns with the same influence they had prior to your starting KotFE.
      Also, the ‘no more companion conversations once you start KotFE’ is not entirely accurate; if you _acquire_ either Treek or HK-51 after you start KotFE, you will get all of their conversations as you increase your influence with them. The termination of companion customizations appears to be only for companions you already have when you start KotFE.

    • snakedoctor

      Jugg/Mara can, since he was your companion before. Otherwise you need rank 40 valor.
      Personally, it’s more annoying that I can’t abandon that quest, so it’s taking up space I could use farming heroics or whatever.

      • Jeremy

        Yeah, if you abandon the quest, it goes right back to Lana. You can’t reject him so he just gets to sit there and block anything that comes next. Thanks Bioware.

    I really want to just skip Lokin altogether but I’ve been kind of ocd about this alliance thing and he’s the only recruit left that I haven’t got, so I’ll likely end up doing his mission eventually.

    Did Bowdaar quest on 2 chars today. On both he stuck in Contacts>Alliance Recruit, can’t send him on missions or use as Companion. But around 3 weeks ago i did it on 2 chars and all working fine.

    • Hawke

      Same thing happened to me, my Smuggler finished the alliance alert for Bowdaar yet he remains as an Alliance Recruit, can’t summon him. Relogging didn’t help, neither did restarting the game. Created a ticket.

  • Jonathan Parker

    I just completed the Bowdaar mission, Freedom Fight, and it says he joined my alliance as a follower. Unfortunately, he seems to be stuck in the “Recruit” section, and I can’t summon him as a companion. It seems like this is a recent bug, since I see a lot of people having the same problem and lots of people who have had him as a companion since the mission was available. Has anyone else had this problem and found a fix?

    • Known bug, wait for Bioware to fiix it

  • Skurhink

    Why does one char gett 550 influence and another get 650? With the Continuing Comfort mission

  • bigbob7_77

    having trouble recruiting talos. (mission fighting power with knowledge) cn not pick up artifacts from site 5. There is a big purple thing with very long range that stuns and kills me. Can not get close to it nor the relics. Anyone know what the deal is? it did not used to be there.

    • t0bs

      I went to tatooine – inside the open-pvp area you can find a tome to “fight” the ancient evil on Yavin 4. The tome gives you a buff for 1 hour. I think it prevented the thing from dragging me and I could take the relics. Hope it works for you

      • Arkira

        What t0bs wrote is correct. However, the active buff (lasts 1 hour) does not prevent you from being dragged to the ancient threat, but now you take a lot less damage and are able to flee the immediate vicinity and thus recover the datacrons on site 5.
        bigbob7_77 is correct, too, it is a bug, but when this will be fixed we’ll have to see – best use this workaround. It also helps to have the travel conveniences to Outdoors Den and Yavin 4 active (to be found in your legacy tab). Details about the ancient threat are found here: http://dulfy.net/2015/01/13/swtor-ancient-threat-and-yavin-secret-achievements-guide/

      • Rubix

        Confirmed that by just having the buff I wasn’t dragged by the Ancient Threat.

    • bigbob7_77

      Turns out it is a world boss that does not spawn and de-spawn properly. It is a bug that will be fixed soon on a release.

      • Farsear

        That bug has been fixed.

    • Farsear

      It’s a bug and that bug has been fixed.

  • Matt

    What’s after completing chapter 16? is there still possibility to upgrade base and doing star fortresses?

  • Anne Rogers

    If the Outlander can travel back in time to complete heroic missions that are 5+years in the past to gather crates for the Alliance, why not go back in time and formulate a better plan to stop Zakuul?

  • Lizzy Gracemount

    Some of this is wrong. You don’t get your companion immediately if your ranking with them is below 10. I went on my smuggler to get Bowdaar and had to do the quest a few times to get my rank up to 10. It wouldn’t just ‘give’ me him…same with M1-4X…unless I’m missing something on his quest, he won’t join my Trooper without doing the 20 matches, which I don’t want to do…Only thing I can think of is his rank is 8 with me and not 10 starting out…Other than that, thank you for this list. It has been very helpful.

    • Mac Spoon

      I thought he said for those companions you mentioned if they were already ranked 10 when you had them, you can skip the steps when you go to recruit them.

      • Lizzy Gracemount

        “Bypassing recruitment

        If you are Sith Warrior trying to recruit Major Pierce or Trooper
        trying to recruit M1-4x, they will join you right away without the
        PvP/Valor requirement.”

        No, it says if you are that class you can skip the extra requirements, but this isn’t true. Unless there is another place in this long post that said this that I missed. It is a long post. May have missed it somewhere else.

        • Gguy

          Same goes for recruiting Xalek and Talos as an inquisitor.

  • Verner Lond

    Found a Jagganath Target at -2995,78 -3414,88 and -3290,89 all in Icefall Plains.

  • Mayka

    Can anyone tell me if the legacy gear you get through the crates is class based or random loot? Like the warrior pieces. Do you have to be a trooper to get troop gear or is it ok to go ahead with a different class to try for the set you want. Any help is appreciated, thanks.

    • Drake Ryzer

      Each supply crate you give them will earn you 500 influence with them and they will give you back a Commander’s Share of the loot. This crate will usually give you Bound to Legacy Remnant armor shell (Arkanian, Dreadguard, Yavin), companion gifts, and mounts.

      Beywan Aygo only drops TROOPER or WARRIOR legacy gear
      Hylo Visz only drops SMUGGLER or BOUNTY HUNTER legacy gear
      Juvard Illip Oggurobb only drops INQUISITOR or AGENT legacy gear
      Sana-Rae only drops KNIGHT or CONSULAR legacy gear
