Heroic quests & bonus series and their rewards–Empire

Looking for the Republic equivalent? http://dulfy.net/2012/05/13/heroic-quests-bonus-series-and-their-rewardsrepublic/

Hey everyone, while leveling up via the various planets, you will encounter many heroic quests and bonus series. You might be wondering from time to time if it is worth your while to stay on the current planet and do them or hop to the next planet and start a new quest chain.

This guide will hopefully answer some of that question for you. It will list all the heroic quests, bonus series and their associated rewards. Keep in mind that this list does not include any of the normal quests or any of the heroic dailies on Ilum or Belsavis that rewards Daily Commendations (exception: the Heroic 4+ on Black Hole is included as it drops orange armor as well). This list should hopefully help some of you fashion fanatics that are looking for matching armor of a set.

Flashpoint Guide: Hardmode Maelstrom Prison

Hey everyone, this is my second installment of a series of three guides covering Republic exclusive flashpoint, this one touching on Maelstrom Prison. Maelstrom Prison is the Republic equivalent of The Foundry and is a continuation of Taral V. It is an indoors area much like False Emperor and therefore you cannot skip as much trash as you did in Taral V. The bosses in Maelstrom Prison are also a bit harder than the bosses in Taral V, or at least I have found.

Companion Gifts and Crafting bonuses for 1.2

Hey everyone, with patch 1.2, you can finally gain affection with your annoying ship droid and make him get better at certain crafting skills. I thought this would be a good time to update all the previous companion gift information and add in all the crafting bonuses in one page. All of the data here directly came from the client files and therefore should be fairly accurate unless I made a typo.

Rakghoul Pandemic Dynamic Event Guide–Updated Daily

Hey everyone, most of you are probably well informed of this event by now, but for those who are just doing it for a first time, this is a good starting place! The Rakghoul Pandemic a new dynamic event that started on April 15 on the planet of Tatooine. It involves a series of time limited quests about the Rakghoul plague!
