Quests

 

Creature Rehabilitation

Tips:

  • This mission takes place on Rishi, Hoth, and Alderaan.
  • PART 1 – RISHI: Fly on over and exit the main city to the west and follow the mission marker to an area of nests past the waterfalls. Examine any of the Orokeet nests on this path (there are a few near some trees at ground level, and some across the road up the hill) and it will summon a silver-level Tonitran to fight. Examine the nest a second time to get the bird. Once following you, safely quicktravel back to the docks and interact with the glowing blue creature cage.
  • PART 2 – HOTH: On Hoth, the Tauntaun locations to scan are slightly north of Gargaths spot in the Jagged Plains. Republic players can use the Frostclaw heroic shuttle to get here fast, but both factions have good quicktravels. Once standing directly on the objective quest marker on the map, a yellow temporary ability to scan should appear. Do this three times, and the third location will direct you to nearby nests. You must right-click a nest. Once acquired, take the tawn fawn back to the Jagged Plains outpost for your faction – not the starting base. There is a large glowing blue crate to right-click outside.
  • PART 3 – ALDERAAN: On Alderaan, the nerf grounds you’re looking for are halfway between outpost talarn for imps and house alde library for republic, so quicktravel or taxi to either. You’ll find a bunch of sick nerfs on the path called Illness Stricken Nerf Calf. Slightly further north of them is the vet equipment you can riight-click, they are glowing blue boxes. Near a nerf, you’ll get two temporary abilities; using the first one unlocks use of the 2nd, so Scan then Cure the sick nerfs. Then head back to Dantooine!
  • PART 4 – DANTOOINE: On Dantooine, head up to your farm and go into the green-door with your three new creatures in it and walk over each of them. The care guide is a glowing blue datapad to right-click on a table inside the building, which will send you around to collect supplies.
  • To pet, scan or heal your creatures, you must be very close to them and select them, then click the ability on the temporary ability bar.

Festive Footwork

Tips:

  • This mission takes place in Blba Groves.
  • Head down to the Holo-Pole just down the road from where the mission terminal is and press the temporary ability that pops up.
  • Wait a minute and a half and you’re done!

Festival Pastry Sampling

Tips:

  • This mission takes place in Blba Groves.
  • Festival Pastry Sampling is a very simple mission – go to the tables across from the mission terminal and eat from each of the four pie types.
  • In order to have a pie be available for sampling, a player must complete Patissier for a Day and make the pie. You can only make one pie a day. If you are alone and no other players are making pie, you cannot complete Festival Pastry Sampling.
  • This is a seasonal event that’s sure to draw a lot of players though on less populated servers like Leviathan or when playing outside prime time for your server, keep in mind Pastry Sampling requires at least 4 players willing to make different pies during Patissier – or log in quickly on alts and make your other pies for yourself. Any pie made and placed at the sampling table lasts exactly 10 minutes.

Patissier for a Day

Tips:

  • This mission takes place in Blba Groves.
  • Enter the building to the right of the mission terminal and select a baked good to make for the day by pressing the glowing button in front of the displays. Keep an eye on the tables outside the shop, as players doing Festival Pastry Sampling will need to sample one of each pie to complete it. If you see any pies that aren’t being made equally, choose one that’s most in-demand at the moment to make completing the sampling daily easier on yourself and others.
  • Next you’ll interact with the recipe table, then head back out of the shop. Past the sampling tables and down near the holo-pole are a few tents with different ingredients stored under them. The one you need will be glowing blue.
  • The next step will be to “Gather Remaining Ingredients”. These are all stored in a side-room of the bake shop, so head back. Similar to the Feast of Prosperity cooking, all of the items are interactable but only 3 are correct. These are listed as mission objectives, so it can help to simply mouse over each item in the store room one by one. If you see the mission objective in the tooltip, you still need that item!
  • Next you’ll head back into the main room and combine the ingredients in a tin on the table in the image above – a temporary ability will appear when standing at the table. Shove what you made in the oven and bring it out to the tables outside to complete the mission.

Cultivation

Tips:

  • This mission takes place in Blba Groves. Head north to the large farm warehouse and interact with the terminal inside to take control of a farm probe.
  • The first phase of the mission is to sow some crops. Y0u will have three abilities to do this – First grab each kind of seed from the three boxes in the middle of the field. This will enable Sow Seeds , which you will use to plant them by placing the aoe on the green arrow indicators in the dirt. Then, grab some water from the tank on the north wall of the enclosure. This enables Hydrate , which is a short Line AoE you can drop across each row of crops. Finally grab Fertilizer from the pile next to the shed you started in, and channel this Fertilizer AoE overtop each patch.
  • To move on to the next phase, go back into the shed and interact with the panel on the floor. Time will pass and the crops will start to sprout. Pests will attack, and you must drive the drone back to each patch to eliminate them with specific abilities. Fumigate is a point blank AoE used to take care of the flying enemies. Deter is a focused laser attack you can use on each crawling lizard pest. Finally the Controlled Burn Probe is an AoE you can click and drop onto each of the vines growing on the final patch. Return to the shed afterwards.
  • Time will pass again. Exit the shed one last time and harvest 3 of each crop, and come back into the shed to complete the mission.

Germination Preparation: Fleet

Tips:

  • The Germination Preparation missions are simply quick shopping trips to stock up on seeds that take place in the area mentioned in the titles.
  • For the fleet, check the center cantina area for a shady merchant. He will sell all 3 seeds you need for 15,000 credits each.
  • Simply head back to Blba Groves and go north to the farms to deposit the seeds in the bin.

Germination Preparation: Mek-Sha

Tips:

  • The Germination Preparation missions are simply quick shopping trips to stock up on seeds that take place in the area mentioned in the titles.
  • For Mek-Sha, take a taxi or quicktravel down to the Three Points area and leave the Bazaar on the western bridge. You’ll find the Harido Wald Shipping Terminal right here at the end of the bridge. After using it, grab your shipment located down the hallway to your right (when facing the terminal) and under the starship in this hangar area. It’ll be locked, so continue west and pick up the security key from the table. Finally go back to the shipment under the ship one more time before leaving.
  • Simply head back to Blba Groves and go north to the farms to deposit the seeds in the bin.

Germination Preparation: Nar Shaddaa

Tips:

  • The Germination Preparation missions are simply quick shopping trips to stock up on seeds that take place in the area mentioned in the titles.
  • For Nar Shaddaa, head to the Lower Promenade. Just south of the giant hutt statue is an Inventory Terminal to interact with. You’ll find nothing you want, so go to the northern one next, in between the biochem and artifice trainers. Again, no hits, so head up the ramp to the Upper Promenade and head left to the kiosk just outside the GSI building west of the Feast vendors.
  • This third terminal will be what you want, so to place an order, a temporary ability should appear when standing directly in front of the kiosk. This starts a shipment back on Dantooine, so go back to Blba Groves.
  • Go north toward the farms to grab the shipment on the side of the road, and then further north to deposit the seeds in the bin.

Zap-a-Fish

Tips:

  • This mission takes place entirely within Blba Groves. Start by heading north, past the farms, all the way to the northwest phased area and grab a beverage.
  • Directly behind you will be the interactable radio to start some music, then interact with the blanket to settle in and start fishing.
  • To fish, your screen will populate a helpful temporary ability bar with 6 moves, shown in the image above. The first four are pretty obvious, it moves the fishing droid up, down, left, and right around the pond. The pond is actually a 3×3 grid of 9 positions, so don’t worry about accuracy, controlling the droid is easy.
  • The last two abilities are to zap fish and to quit if you need to stop early. To catch your 15 fish, move the droid over the green circles that appear and simply press the zap button. This is more akin to Whack-A-Mole than fishing, with the green circles disappearing at different rates. The largest ones linger for about 5 seconds, while the smallest circle of fish stay for about 10. If you’re having trouble catching fish, stick to the small circles, or at least stop trying to get large circles from across the grid. Due to the grid structure of movement, it’s impossible to “miss” a fish by zapping between circles – the droid always moves directly on top of each.
  • After 15 are caught, the droid will move to the east shore of the pond where you can collect your haul (which gets stored in your REAL inventory, so have 3 or 4 empty spaces ready). You’ll be awarded different sized bags of different fish species, depending on how many of each size of circle you zapped.
  • It has no bearing on completing the mission, so it may be achievement related later. Simply deposit the fish into the repopulator on the southwest side of the pond to complete the mission.
