How to Participate in the Dantooine Event
All characters level 20+ can participate in this Event!
To participate in the Event, just travel straight to Dantooine and pick up the Dailies in your respective factions base or interact with the Terminal on the Fleet. Interacting with the Terminal on Fleet grants you a one-off Mission with some minor story to it (but only if you’ve completed the Ossus Story!).

[Heroic 2] Shiny New Toy
- Soloable – Yes, 2-manned with heal and DPS or two DPS plus companions.
- Requirements – When soloing, mob management (CC’s, stuns, killing low health mobs first), minor companion micro-managing.
- Comments – Mobs are harder to kill then the initial bosses (mini-bosses). The final boss can hit hard if you’re not careful.
- Key Boss Mechanics – Use EMP Missiles to take down the Walker’s shield and stay out of the ‘shock and awe’ red circle (you can kite it) or interrupt it. You can also interrupt the shield cast for more DPS uptime on the Walker.
[Heroic 4] Beware of Hugo
- Soloable – Yes, easily 2-manned with healer and DPS or two DPS with companions.
- Requirements – When soloing, mob management (CC’s, stuns, killing low health mobs first), major companion micro-managing on the Boss.
- Comments – Mobs are pretty straight forward to deal with solo. Final two mobs can get ugly if you aggro both (which is easy to do, wait for the walking one to walk back to the mob group closest to gate before attacking second last mob). Alternatively, you can skip the final 2 mobs and just click straight on the gate and teleport all group members to the boss. Hugo is tedious and painful but soloable.
- Key Boss Mechanics – Bleeding Effect at 5 stacks really hurts. Taking your Companion in and out of combat can help reduce the stacks they get. The boss seems to switch aggro a fair bit though. Don’t stand in his cleave ability if you have 5 stacks.
[Heroic 4] Reactor Ransom
There are two different ways to complete this Heroic. Pay the ransom to Yavok or kill Yavok.
To pay the Ransom, all you have to do is click on the Droid in the entryway of the Heroic, buy the ransom item for 15 million Credits then use it.
To proceed with the Heroic and kill Yavok, click on the Locking Mechanism terminal, kill the mobs and then Yavok.
- Soloable – Possibly, but can be 2-manned with a DPS and Healer plus companions or 2 DPS with healing companions
- Requirements – When soloing, mob management (CC’s, stuns, killing low health mobs first) t, minor companion micro-management
- Comments – The mobs are straight forward to manage, the boss can be tanked and spanked pretty easily with good heals.
- Key Boss Mechanics – The circle Yavok puts on the aggroed player does a fair bit of damage. Everything else was ignorable when 2-manning. Make sure the beam ability doesn’t hit the conduit pillar thing in the centre of the room!
