First of all, thank you SO MUCH Kwich for buying me one of the European Cartel cards T~T Really made my day.
I’m hoping to check a Gamestop and Best Buy around here soon, but due to some craziness happening in real life, stopping places hasn’t really been possible ATM.
Besides that, the expansion will be out on April 15th–April 9th for those with early access and I’m, unsurprisingly, so not ready.
Ignoring event issues and that I still need more reputation with the gree and am probably the only one who does… I still need to buy the experience boosts ahead of time for the upcoming planet and possibly get some quests stacked up to get some experience right away.
…I also should probably finish the story with my agent as well.
I have the answer to these two questions which I think is what most people are looking for (especially B)
A. In order to get the pet you will have to have received the email mentioning the pet promotion. Then you would need to create a new SWTOR account with that email address. That account will then, at a later date, receive the pet.
B. At this moment subscribers cannot get the items, no. This was intended as a cross-promotion to other EA free-2-play games. However, I can tell you that subscribers will have access to these items in the future. We are still working out both the when and the how. I will share any details as I get them.
In addition to the Cartel Coins, each of our retail partners offer an exclusive mini-pet that will be added to your account when you redeem your Cartel Coins Card here on this website.
The currently available pets are:
BestBuy: Arctic Manka Lynx – Renowned for its speed and grace, this Arctic Manka Lynx will loyally follow you on your adventures across the galaxy.
GameStop: Lobelode – The Lobelode is hardy and persistent, at home in even the most dangerous and exotic environments you could visit. EU Retailers: Forest Nekarr Cat – Known for its agility and viciousness, the Forest Nekarr Cat will loyally explore the galaxy with you.
The one in bold is the newest edition–the pet that has only started popping up recently. The question now is if they are still from space pirate packs or if this is really where they were from all along. 🙁
Also, the Gree Event is returning tomorrow so for those who were good and don’t suck like me, you should be able to get more stuff!
Yes, it does exist. No, there are currently no confirmations on how to get it (although, again, it does exist–proof of that has been given).
My idea is it was forgotten from the Space Pirate’s Cartel Pack (as that is where it was originally rumored to be in) and is a late addition.
This, of course, opens up the idea that there could be other late additions. If you see someone selling the Forest Nekarr Cat, please contact the seller and see where they got it. Edit: Confirmed to be from the Space Pirate Cartel Pack.
and if anyone gets on on the Shadowlands, please send me it …no seriously, please. (and dwedtoof)
Edit: And to add, from the 2.0 patch notes:
“Dread Master Styrak now has a chance to drop a Kell Dragon vanity pet.”
…*sigh* at least it doesn’t sound like it is hard mode only :/
So, after lots of testing today and help from people killing those who were being jerks to me and someone even showing me other spawn spots, we now have conclusions! 😛
Anywhere that the Ancient Gree Destroyer bot can spawn is where you want to be. Besides the giant dome in the center of the PVP area, it can also spawn in the Southern area in various places.
The robot spawns every 7 minutes.
On rare occasions, instead of an Ancient Gree Destroyer spawning, an Ancient Gree Defender will spawn instead. This robot is a lot smaller than the giant Destroyer Droid–similar to the war bots patrolling around and is about the size of a character.
While Ancient Gree Destroyer will always drop the small reputation, Ancient Gree Defender ALWAYS drops L1-L Defender. Please keep in mind that the bonus quest does ask you to defeat an Ancient Green Destroyer–not a Defender so defeating an Ancient Gree Defender, despite it spawning in the same place (and thus, if one is up, it needs to be defeated before a Destroyer will spawn), will not complete the bonus quest.
So, 1.7 is officially out and the game is up. Site is still down though which means you can not buy Cartel Coins right now. Regardless, the new pack is out…
Anyway, as for reputation stuff… There’s 2 Gree Reputation pets. They are both 50K each–there is the Data Core at Newcomer and the Miniature Gray Sacant at Legend. I guess this will take a bit of grinding :/
I haven’t seen any of the other Reputation Vendors yet (kind of on Ilum so…), but going through the overview are the following titles:
Republic Battalion – Hero unlocks Hero of Section X, Legend unlocks The Section Guardian
Republic Space Armada – Hero unlocks Hero of Deep Space, Legend unlocks Hyperspace Legend
The Gree Enclave – Newcomer unlocks Gree Research Assistant, Hero unlocks Honored Silver Acute, and Legend unlocks Perfect Gold Bisector
The Voss – Friend unlocks Honored Voss-Friend, Legend unlocks The Chosen of the Voss
You can gain 12,000 a week… which seems like a lot, but I doubt you can get Legend in a week so I’m scared to think of how much you need total. Not to mention this event is only around for 2 weeks so… :/
but yes, shall update this randomly. Time to work on the pet list.
So, if you preorder the Rise of the Hutt Cartel, you now will be getting the following items when it comes out this Spring:
1. The title: “Scourge of the Hutts”
2. A Brand New Pet: Makrin Seedling
3. A Dr. Oggurobb Hutt Holostatue (which can be used for training)
If you already pre-ordered for the 5 days of early access, do not worry, you will be getting these already! Regardless, I’ll be updating all pet related information shortly :3
