Maybe I am wrong but wasnt Sandclaw a random spawn during the Rakghoul Event.

Alright, tonight I will be heading out to South Jundland area and hopefully a Sniper friend of mine can tag along with me. I don't remember there being a Rakghoul event boss named Sandclaw. Intresting stuff!

No luck finding anything yet. Are we sure Sandclaw is in game, and is not just a datamine?

Also, don't pay attention to Lukewaldo. He mainly just asks general chat if anyone has found sandclaw/Queen of sands...
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.

Anyone able to confirm/deny this?

We have spent a good 15 hours on our hunt so far. No luck finding the Krayt_cave. Still waiting on a CSM response to see if we can get clarity on if this tome is just a remnant.

I have already spent countless hours on thinking, searching and rambling - now reconsidering that the Tome would actually have a purpose in the current live client - let's recap which mechanics we have seen so far.

  • Activating different Items to trigger sth.
  • Clicking on objects to activate sth. (encounters, events, etc.)
  • Gathering buffs, moving to certain areas, clicking on objects with certain items in inventory

These are the ones that come to my mind.
So some of the "secret" stuff so far (like e.g. the fleet datacrons) took place on a rather small area, whereas the Magenta-Crystal-secret actually makes you travel across 3 planets and in the end spawns a "Boss" by interacting with sth. And the Magenta-Crystal-secret is probably the best reference considering to "how far we should go" - Shockfrozen water actually spawns a force ghost? Pretty far fetched, imo.
So what i haven't read in the posts is actually some more details about the Outlaws Den, which i would like to share.

  • The "Auction House" (Tome) Building has actually 8 round lights on its entrance, probably a hint to the need of an 8man raid group (lvl 50)
  • It kinda looks similar to Jabba the Hutts palace
  • Only one of the three smaller buildings spread across the area (the one north) has a lightbulb or sth. in it
  • This building has also some kind of panel attached to it, but i couldn't find a way to click/activate it

So probably my best guess - and i only tell you because i slowly run out of Motivation and ideas - is my lovely, super -suspicious well fed womp rat.

  • It's lvl 50
  • Only moves when a player gets closer than ~ 73,3m (which could be to indicate the presence of other Players)
  • It's path actually leads you to each vendor
  • The vendor buffs can be applied on the rat too (which could be a bug), and there is enough time to apply all 3 of them and have the rat move back to the center

Talking about the "Ultimate PvP Boss", defending/fighting for control of the rat and the vendors would be quite a PvP Task, considering their long respawn timers. But I have watched the rat for hours now, hugged that damn thing, tried to feed it, even tried to get it close to the Tome with all buffs on me and on it - no results. So probably sb. else has more time to take care of that ugly creature. Maybe there's an Rakatan device or sth. idk. of that transforms it, maybe the Tome itself is that device. But that are just my thoughts on it, maybe I'm completely off track
And a Dev/BW - response of some kind, whether it is currently ingame or not, would be freakin awesome at this point.

Anysao is lieing, I never asked in General Chat about the Queen of Sands or Sandclaw. Alright, once. Me and Anysao are friends and we've been having arguments recently. Can we please not bring this into the Forums? Sadly no luck as well on the Krayt Cave, actually didn't have enough time to head out to Tatooine. I once followed the Well Fed Womprat, nothing happened. I once tried going into a Exhaustion Zone with all 3 buffs from the Vendors in the Outlaw's Den. Nothing. I'll keep searching.

Wait, WHAT? Why did we not start with this clue?!

edit: oh, and lukewaldo: No, we are not friends. And I do not lie.

This has been common knowledge throughout the thread. Many people have tried several things with said womp rat buffed and unbuffed.

We were friends, for a year, and I swear I know there is something your not telling me. Like I said, I'm just a player who wants to help find out about the Queen of Sands and Sandclaw. You, Anysao, told me about this before. I got interested and started to look into it. And remember Asbjorn, who is a friend to me as you know, said he'd invite me to Ops, and even the Queen of Sands/Sandclaw if you were to ever get it spawned. I remember those good times... when we were friends. Look, I do not want to bring this: 1. On to the forums. 2.Into public. If were going to discuss this it better be on live game in /whisper. Because from now on after this I'm not responding to you on the forums and just paying attention to others on this Thread. Look, I still want to be friends with you. I will respond only if its something that bugs me.
