Agreed. Thank you for the great post MidichIorian. Fantastic summary and I'm sure all of us reading it appreciate the time you took to type it up.

Thanks for the details, sounds pretty interesting.

Any lag resemblance to Ilum 1.0?

It was done nicely. It can be a gankfest all day if you let it, but it encourages team work. I did it this morning, and after awhile the gankfest stopped. There is an objective in the area that multiple groups of 4 were trying to reach. After awhile, people started to wait patiently while others tried to achieve their objective and after that it went by fast. I started the whole quest chain around 9:45 am and completed all of it by 11am.

As far as PvP goes, you don't have to go in that area to get those quests. Just abandon them and do the other dailies if you are opposed to pvp. I was actually grouped with a healer who never does pvp and we did well. All in all tho, it was a fun experience. It was nice to face people outside of the arena.

I jumped into Ilum during my lunch break and had a total blast. No lag in the FFA area which is where I spent my entire time. Just roamed around with a group of guildies killing Pubs on sight. Had several 1v1s, three of which were good fights. Even finished two of the Gree quests.

This new Ilum is going to be a fun place to hang out while waiting for WZ pops. Can't wait to hit the zone up for more action tonight.

I doubt the PvP will last long. The event ends in 2 weeks and for those on a PvP server, we could already do this on any planet. Just most people are in the new area to check it out. As people get their Leg. Weapons you'll see less and less people there. Without proper rewards people will go back to doing WZ. And Ilum will once again be the dead planet.

bioware did a proper good job with the grind for these stupid weapons tho.

it takes 24 gree helix comms and Champion level rep w/ the gree. have fun with that grind

and it looks like you can get 1 gree helix thing a day, plus 2 from a one-time-only quest. unless im missing something, which i seriously hope i am. 22 days to get 1 of these weapons, sheesh

well the only difference i can say from doing black hole dailies/belsavius and ilum is the scenery. Theres hardly any pvp going on its nothing but hardcore pve'rs crying thier getting ganked. Theres enough pve to get you 10 lvls lol if you were leveling.

If you want pvp were stuck with the same garbage warzones that even now a year later you still cant choose the warzone you want.

Once again poor development takes a lead sigh

Seriously though. When I found out you could finally get a legacy saber I am like "finally"...then I noticed ill have to do this every single day, and to top it off there is like a truce going on which is total bull. You should not see imps and pubs waiting to charge the pylon...its old Ilum all over again.

*** bioware.
