Bioware launched a surprise dynamic event on us over the weekend. I haven’t seen any of the world bosses for it, probably won’t with our guild gone dark, but the content I’ve been able to do has been pretty fun.
I like the pets from questing or purchase with the event currency. I’m not a pet and mount fiend like I used to be, but these spikey little guys are pretty nifty.
The Crimson Rakling requires a pretty long chain and epic exploration of Tatooine, a bit of cliff jumping, some cross faction guards dodging… Thank goodness for map coordinates and fan site guides. I used the one from Torwars and it saved me a lot of frustration. I’m amazed at how quickly people found and documented the pieces for this chain.
The other pet, can be purchased from a Jawa vendor north of the crash site which is ground zero for the event. For 60 DNA Samples, you can buy a Pale Rakling pet. Between my various alts getting infected, experiencing glowing eyes, green gas, and blowing up, I was able to gather that many pretty quickly for a pet on one of my characters.
Here are a couple of the companion customizations for the “rak” ish look. Quinn looks sexy even as a rakghoul.
