Hi!

I know this might be kind of a noob question, but what are "lookouts" (mission log, tab next to codex)? How can I use them? What are they for? Do I need a certain level to use them? My highest toon is level 39 btw.

Cheers, Niko

A Lock out is when you complete a flashpoint/opperation that can only be completed once a day/week
Peace is a lie, there is only passion. Through passion, I gain strength. Through strength, I gain power. Through power, I gain victory. Through victory, my chains are broken. The Force shall free me.

Thanks for your answer, but... How do I use it then? On the lookouts screen I can't select/start/begin anything?

You do not use them, they are for information only, and they only apply to the end-game instances that you do not have access to yet.
Once you complete one of those, a countdown will start, and you will not be able to go back and do that instance again until the countdown has completed. The Lockouts page simply displays your currently active countdowns.
No, really! I am telling the truth, honestly! Look I can prove it, I am a politician! I am as honest as the day is long!
Besides, I am a terrible liar, everyone can see when I am lying - my lips are moving... oh damn, err, that last comment was off the record, right?

"Lock-outs".. meaning which instances you are "locked out of."
