Legendary Implants

Legendary Implants are a new type of gear for level 80 players in Star Wars: The Old Republic. Updated for 7.1!

In previous expansions, you would collect a Set Bonus, a special type of gear that was specific to your Combat Style, and that bonus was attached to your armor pieces and you had to collect six different pieces to get a full Set Bonus, which would change and improve the way your abilities worked. In the 7.0 Legacy of the Sith expansion at level 80, Set Bonuses are being retired, and your new equivalent of a Set Bonus is called a Legendary Implant.

  • Step 1 – Pick Up Quest at Level 80
  • Step 2 – Complete 100 points worth of activities
  • Step 3 – Buy Implants
  • Step 4 – Upgrade Implants

Pick Up Quest At Level 80

To get a legendary implant, you must first start a special quest called Technological Advancements, and it’s recommended that you pick up this quest immediately after you hit level 80, which is when it becomes available.

To pick up the quest, you will first need to talk to a character in the corner of the Supplies section of the Republic or Imperial fleet named Lonndar Eadwinn, a blue Twi’lek character who is an Implant Researcher.

Technological Advancements Quest

He will give you a quest that asks you to complete 100 points worth of activities and then return to him. These activities include things like completing conquest, flashpoints, defeat operation bosses, complete pvp matches, and daily areas and heroics. Each activity is worth a certain number of points, with completing conquest being the biggest way to get points. This is why you want to speak to him early – if you’re lucky, you’ll pick up the quest, and then be able to complete your conquest for the week, which will give you a big chunk of points. If you are a solo player, if you complete your conquest three weeks in a row, you will be able to complete the quest within three weeks, and you can complete it even fast if you play group content, though solo players can even speed things up a bit by running heroics or daily area missions.

Points

  • Completing a Personal Conquest – 34 charges **BEST, ONCE A WEEK**
  • Completing Flashpoints or Operations via Group Finder – 2 charges***BUG***
  • Completing Flashpoints on Story Difficulty – 2 charges***BUG***
  • Completing Flashpoints on Veteran Difficulty – 6 charges***BUG***
  • Completing Flashpoints on Master Difficulty – 10 charges***BUG***
  • Killing Operations Bosses on Story Difficulty – 4 charges per boss
  • Killing Operations Bosses on Veteran Difficulty – 7 charges per boss
  • Killing Operations Bosses on Master Difficulty – 8 charges per boss
  • Completing a PvP Match – 10 charges **FAST**
  • Completing Daily Area Weekly Missions – 10 charges (likely must be the ones listed in the Activities tab in the Solo section, not all weeklies are available at once)
  • Completing Heroic Weekly Missions – 10 charges (Must be the ones listed in the Activities tab in the Solo section, not all weeklies are available at once)

*** BUG: At the moment, at the launch of 7.0, it seems running flashpoints through the groupfinder does not always reward the “Story/Veteran/Master” points – instead it is just giving the 2 points for running it in the groupfinder. You also don’t seem to get neuro key charges / points from running flashpoints outside the groupfinder at all. Bug Thread As of 7.1 I’m still not sure which have been fixed and which are working.

Conquest

Conquest is a set of weekly rotating objectives you can complete to earn conquest points – if you complete 100,000 points worth, you get a reward. For the Legendary Implants quest, completing your personal conquest will net you 34 points of the 1000 that you need.

If you are still learning how Conquest works, check out this guide. If you want a list of my favorite easy conquest objectives, my favorite is running a single space mission for 43,000 conquest points, and here’s some more!

Buy Implants

Once you have done your 100 points worth of activities you will unlock a vendor that will sell you a Legendary Implant, which has a small set bonus attached to it. You can have two different legendary implants.

These implants are item-rating 326, and these are what they cost once you have unlocked the option to buy them:

  • 100 Conquest Commendations
  • 6,500 Tech Fragments
  • 20 Daily Resource Matrix
  • 25,000 Credits

You will see by default only the implants for your discipline but can change that with the drop down at the top, however you will only be able to buy implants that line up with your current Combat Style.

Which Implants?

Which Implants should you buy? That depends on your class and discipline. You likely do not want to buy the same Implant type twice as effects usually do not stack up. Please see this guide by Merlyn for a chart! 

Upgrade Implants

To upgrade an Implant from 326 to 328, you bring the original Implant to the vendor. The costs to upgrade are the same:

  • The original implants
  • 100 Conquest Commendations
  • 6,500 Tech Fragments
  • 20 Daily Resource Matrix
  • 25,000 Credits

Keep in mind if you turn it in with an augment, you will lose the augment, so you may want to remove the augment first.

You can upgrade your Implant at least one additional time up to 330.

Cheaper Implants for Alts (Update 7.1)

You can unlock discounts on Legendary Implants now! The achievements can be found under Feats of Strength -> Advancement -> Legendary Items.

Upgrade Two Implants to 330

Once you have upgraded two of your implants up to item-rating 330, and then have both of them equipped at once, you will get an achievement that will lower the cost of all implants purchased on your server by any characters who have the implant vendor unlocked.

The reduced cost to buy a new implant, upgrade it from 326->328, or upgrade it from 328->330 is:

  • 60 Conquest Commendations
  • 2,500 Tech Fragments
  • 20 Daily Resource Matrix
  • 25,000 Credits
  • and the original implant if you are upgrading

In short, you can buy implants for alt characters for 4,000 Tech Fragments less. The cost to upgrade from 330->332 and 332->334 is still the higher original price.

Upgrade Two Implants to 334

If you continue your Implant journey and get two equipped implants to 334, you’ll unlock an additional discount. In addition to the previous discount, you’ll get the discounted price when upgrading the later tiers of all implants on your server, from 330->332 and 332->334.
