I'm happy that taun tauns are available but they way they did this sucks horribly. 20 pieces of fruit no drops and too much pvp

This is great. I've been wanting an animal mount since launch. I hope the dewbacks are next!

That's odd, I swore when I checked the Rep subscriber vendor his tauntaun also cost 20 tickets.

Reflects mine also, one of the things that I missed from star wars galaxies are mounts. Thanks Bioware!

what fanboys seem to overlook is people dont "complain" because we hate bioware. we just want good content.. and this patch is exactly what most of us are calling for. its amazing.. when bioware puts out "content" we dont want.. they get called out.. but when they actually release content up to the standard we KNOW they can produce.. they get praised. funny how that works.
McSidious: Gotta go with uno pistola for myself. Remember that Han Solo saved Lando, killed Boba Fett and escaped the sarlaac with only one pistol... and he was BLIND. Give a smuggler two pistols and eyesight and I'm fairly certain they would solo the Death Star while hitting on your sister and balancing the federal budget.. CE VIP

Don't really care for the Tauntaun but it actually looks decent, glad we have the option, thanks!

I agree, there are so few nests that they are camped by both factions and since the reset for the fawns is so long you'll run into an enemy faction group that will kill you if you wait.

So you have 2 choices, stay and hope no other faction group kills you while you wait for the re-spawn or travel to another nest hoping that it's not camped by enemies.

It wouldn't be so bad if the success on luring was more along the lines of 50% and not 10%...

6 camps. 3 fauns. 18 attempts.

Phase change.
18 more

If you're sitting at the same camp waiting you're doing it wrong and should not be complaining it takes to long. We had had as many as 5 instances of Hoth yesterday on Pot5 and that was early in prime time. Even during the day we had at least 3. Was able to farm both Tauntauns in a few hours.
