I am fine with not getting any usefull gear this event. The speeder is great, the pet is nice. Think I maybe will also buy the outfit... and maybe I will buy a blaster for one of my companions. Maybe next event will see much stuff just for lightsaber users, who knows?
The crystals from the Rakghoul-event is a little bit more fun for those with lightsabers, it's much more visible when you got your hands on a particularly nice looking one. Got a friend who was a little miffed that he was left out because he had a trooper vanguard. With a blaster rifle...
Well, he's dancing this time
Who knows what we are getting the next event. If you want all the pretty things, then you will have to work at it in every event. Or just participate in those that has got swag that you like.
