SWTOR Life Day Event Guide

Here is my full Guide to the Life Day Event in Star Wars the Old Republic.


The Basics – What is Life Day?

In The Old Republic, it is an event where you throw snowballs at people and NPC’s to get Snow-Covered Parcels and hug Wookiees.

That’s it. That’s the Event. There are no missions to pick up. All missions are automatically given to you. There are also some achievements to get along the way which grants some nice titles.

Basically there are three different activities you can do.

  • Throw Snowballs at other players, companions and some NPC’s to get Snow-Covered parcels
  • Throw Snowballs at Lifeday Gift Droids to get Snow-Covered Parcels and Decorations
  • Hug Wookiees to get Snow-Covered Parcels and Achievements

How to Get Started with the Life Day Event

Simply travel to your factions Fleet and go to the ‘Master of Ceremonies’ Life Day Vendor. They are located in the Galactic Trade Market Area.

Once you’re at the vendor, purchase the ‘Life Day Snowball Bomb’ for 1,000 Credits.

Alternatively, you can purchase the ‘Life Day Snowball Cannon’ from the Cartel Market for 500 CC that does the same thing. The only difference is that the cooldown to use it is 6s.

Then, put the Bomb or Cannon on a quickbar, target a player or NPC, then click on the ‘Life Day Snowball Bomb’ to throw it at your target. Note there is only a CHANCE that you will get a Snow-Covered Parcel.

When you successfully earn a Snow-Covered Parcel, a mission completion window will pop up. Accepting the Mission Completion will grant you the Snow-Covered Parcel into your Currency Tab.


Currency – Snow-Covered Parcels

Snow-Covered Parcels are the currency you get from throwing Snowballs. You can use this currency to purchase a fair few items from the ‘Master of Ceremonies’ Life Day Vendor.

Snow-Covered Parcels are now a Legacy Event Currency. They are stored in the Currency Tab of your Inventory in the ‘Event Currencies’ section.

If you have any Snow-Covered Parcels from previous years sitting in your Legacy Bank or Cargo Hold etc. you will need to mail them to an alt. Then log onto the alt and take them out of the mail. They will then automatically be placed into the Currency Tab.


Getting Snow-Covered Parcels

You have a chance of getting a Snow-Covered Parcel from throwing Snowballs at:

  • Other players
  • Companions
  • Life Day Reveler
  • Life Day Gift Droids
  • Overheated Life Day Gift Droids
  • Wookiee Caroler or Reveler

Lifeday Gift Droids, Overheated Gift Droid & Life Day Revelers

You can find Life-Day Gift Droids on the following planets

  • Coruscant – Senate Plaza
  • Dromund Kaas – Kaas City (Victory Spire)
  • Nar Shaddaa – The Promenade (Lower and Upper)
  • Mek-Sha – Slugfall Harbor, Three Points – The Bazaar, Contested Gangland

Throwing a Snowball at a Life Day Gift Droid only gives you a chance of getting a Snow-Covered Parcel. Throwing a Snowball at an Overheated Gift Droid has a chance of giving you either a Snow-Covered Parcel and/or a Decoration.

Wookiee Carolers and Revelers are found on Fleet, Nar Shaddaa and Mek-Sha.


Life Day Missions

There are three different missions you can complete during the Life Day Event. All missions are granted automatically from performing specific tasks.

Two of the missions have a chance of completion from throwing Snowballs and one requires hugging wookiees.

TitleDescriptionReward
A Special SnowflakeThrow a Snowball at a player, companion or select NPC.1 Snow-Covered Parcel
Little HelperThrow a Snowball at an Overheated Life Day Droid.Choice of 1 of 4 Decorations.
Could Use a Good HugHug 10 Wookiee Revelers or Carolers.2 Snow-Covered Parcels

Snowballs – A Special Snowflake

Simply throw Snowballs at players or select NPC’s for a chance to earn Snow-Covered Parcels and complete the Mission ‘A Special Snowflake’. It’s not uncommon to throw out a lot of Snowballs and not get any Parcels.


Overheated Gift Droids – Little Helper

Throwing Snowballs at Overheated Gift Droids gives you a chance of completing the mission ‘Little Helper’. The reward for completing the mission is your choice of one of four different decorations.

Here are the decoration choices.


Wookiee Hugging – Could Use A Good Hug

Wookiees can be found at the following locations.

  • Fleet – near the Life Day Vendor
  • Nar Shaddaa – The Promenade (Lower and Upper)
  • Mek-Sha – Slugfall Harbor

To hug a Wookiee, you need to click on the Wookiee then stand close to it. Once you are standing close enough the temporary ability, ‘Hug A Wookiee’ will pop up. Then you have to find the ‘sweet spot’ for the ability to light up. Once the ability is lit up, then you can hug the Wookiee.

Hugging a Wookiee automatically grants the daily mission ‘Could Use a Good Hug’. You still have to hug an additional nine Wookiees to complete the mission.

They’re packing the stands, eager to take their minds off their troubles and cheer their favorite swoop gangs. The bikers are here to take on dangerous challenge courses, show off their piloting skills, and flaunt their souped-up swoop bikes. The thunder of the engines, the deafening applause from the fans, the wind battering their helmets… there’s no bigger rush for these thrill seekers.

Despite their reputation as wild rebels whose makeshift courses disregard local districting restrictions, swoop gangs aren’t a serious threat to anyone–something all true swoop fans know! They just love adrenaline-pounding speed, sweet jumps, and big explosions, and the All Worlds Ultimate Swoop Rally combines all three in one crowd-pleasing package. The biggest gangs on the circuit — Horizon’s Razor, the Pit Screamers, and the Blatant Beks — are ready to show their fans a great time.

FEATURED REWARDS:

  • Swoop Rally Mounts (regular and gold versions)

Conquest Reset Time Change

The time Conquest commences is also changing. It will now be at the same time as the daily reset time.

Conquests will begin at 12:00 pm GMT, so the previous Conquest week will end at 11:00 am GMT to allow for the hour cooldown period between events.

This change was done to align all reset events (Operations, dailies etc.) so now everything including Conquest and Events will all have the same reset time. This will help prevent development issues that could arise and be more convenient for the players.
