Hi, I'm on the Ebon hawk server. I'm pleased to announce that my guild, an allied guild, and several other friends are here to help you solve the puzzle. We've seen the tome, and we're dedicated to help you crack the code.
My guess? We need to get a special item to get this "missing" buff. So a good place to start... Where are other deserts in the galaxy?
Ooh! In WildStar, I get double jumps, path choices, and massive PvP!That sounds cool, but one question, where do I get a lightsaber?

I will never take someone who says "EAware" seriously.

Hi guys, i am passing on a message from 'Obiray' as he has quit the game.

obiray is the original founder of the ancient tome. he also said F*** YOU for not giving him any credit in his video and 4days after he uploaded it you then created this thread. heres his exploration video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tPQ6-sThskQ - the second jump is where the ancient tome is. (also watch his other swtor videos )

aside from that he is still willing to help you with working this out and here is his idea of what it might be...

theres a codex called the 'history of tatooine' its about a forgotten war that has wiped out a whole race but no one can recall the war... http://www.swtor-spy.com/codex/histo...tatooine/1616/. my idea is that the tome has the story of what actually happened in the war 30,000 years ago - hence ANCIENT tome.

what made this more clear for me... ive seen multiple threads saying that the 'history of tatooine' codex does not exist in the game yet or the codex is bugged. lol but these people dont know about the ancient tome. so here i am putting 2 and 2 together. ill be passing this message onto the codex threads to get more people on board for this.

the only other thing i could find with ancient things on tatooine were the 'ancient sand demons' heres a quick paragraph of info about them...

By the time of the Cold War between the Galactic Republic and the Sith Empire, sand demons were well-known among the natives of their homeworld Tatooine, though they were largely shrouded in myths and legends. Grainy satellite images and the stories of Tatooine's nomads prevented the rest of the galaxy from dispelling sand demons as an outright myth, and almost all attempts to learn more about the creatures ended in disaster. The Tusken Radiers believed the sand demons absorbed their victims' life essence in order to strengthen themselves, and the Raiders made cave paintings of ancient sand demons that had supposedly survived for centuries through this process—sand demons who were believed to be immune to any injury.[4] The mercenary Kord Murdok hunted sand demons for a time on Tatooine,[7] and the Demon's Blood ritual was a tradition that had existed for generations,[1] though by the time of the Cold War it was no longer well-known.[3] For the ritual, members of the Jedi Order who were seeking enlightenment would track a sand demon out into the deserts in order to anoint themselves with its blood, and those Jedi who successfully returned then visited the Tusken Raiders in order to learn their own unique path to self-discovery.[1]

this is just a second alternative and if it was related to the sand demons then i believe that the ancient tome would relate to the 'seed of rage' and it somehow might activate the tome. i know nothing about these new quests as i dont play the game anymore.


IMO dont get your hopes up on a secret boss because its probably just a lore object for a codex. but lets hope im wrong for your sake

sorry i cant help with the physical part of activating the tome, although i did follow that 'well fed womp rat' around on tatooine for an hour... he runs past every vendor in outlaws den but you cant agro him to pull him towards the vendors, you have to wait for him to get there. also if you stand too far away from the womp rat then he will stop running and stand still. in the past people have tried giving all 3 buffs to the womp rat maybe theres another step involved to make something happen.

any other questions probably best to contact me on youtube.

thanks

The Consular's story on Tatooine touches this briefly.

got a kick out of how bitter obirary was about the satelitte dish blockikng the jump on balcony like bioware actually planned that to irritate people. I guess he never did the binoc quest chain or dailies on tat associated with it. Its a part of a quest now not put there to irritate him or prevent him from gteting there:P

Yup, Tat was once a planet with forests and stuff, but the Rakata used a high heat laser beam and everything was turned to glass. Eventually it became sand... (I think that's what Wookiepedia says )

No he's not, please do not spread useless misinformation. If you or "bad obiwan name ripoff" would check the date on the pictures you'd notice they were uploaded 7/6/13, a full 21 days before he posted his video.


Anyway guys, several dataminers and other people have been contacting me and it seems that they've gathered this so far: 3 vendor buffs + sandclaw buff activates a script within the game files that teleports you from a beam of light within one of the buildings to the Ancient Tome, which makes sense because these kind of jumps aren't very likely to be the real way up, and then the ancient tome will do a check for all 4 buffs when you try to activate it. The only thing we do not know is how to spawn Sandclaw.

Some info on Sandclaw:
Started as a wraid, was changed to a llyek, and the final version is a duneclaw, is referred to as "PvP Superboss".

Maybe one has to slaughter 1000 or so Players in the Outlaw's Den to summon the "PvP Superboss".
You know, "blood for the blood god..." xD

Ladies and Gentlemen... we're onto something! I bet this has been in the game since the start... or has it?

Not the worst Idea I've ever heard. I'll have my group try something of the like. Now it's killing me on the inside: what does this book say?

EDIT, something occurred to me here. Sandclaw was a wraid, then a lylek, then a duneclaw. Maybe were thinking too hard... Lets think of the world bosses of Tatooine.
Trap jaw, a giant wraid.
Then they added something bigger...
The Dread-seeded sand demon, a lylek.
Coincidence? Tatooine is possible *the* most iconic planet in Star Wars. Besides Belsavis and the fleet, it's also the planet BioWare has added most too since launch. So why don't we try to find some specific duneclaw?

Oh maybe you are on to something there. Maybe kill Trapjaw, then the lylek, then the duneclaw (if one can be found).
