It is nice to be able to explore Dantooine and enjoy the scenery with the reduced chance of running into mobs. However, ‘Peacetime’ Dantooine leaves little else to be desired. You can either sit around for hours at a time waiting for food or mission items to respawn or spend 5 minutes doing lacklustre dailies. So let’s take a look at what there is to do.

Dantooine – While You’re Out There Mission Guide

There is a one-off mission found on Dantooine in its peacetime state on a Terminal inside one of the dwellings in the centre of the map (near the Republic Comms Centre). Once you click on it, you have to find five items scattered around Dantooine. Here are there locations. All these items are always found in the same spot but have a fairly long respawn time on them, sadly (no seriously the respawn times are ridiculous). When they’re highlighted blue and clickable, then you’re good to go! Protocol Droid Remnant Found Coordinates: 299,1131 Lightsaber Stash Found Coordinates: -47,527 Archaeological Notes …
