Laying the Trap/The Padawan story quest bugged?

**********Act 2 story spoilers for Sith Assassin below!!!!!***********

OK ive been trying to do this quest all night and nothing seems to work. Basically theres a class quest for the Sith Assassin at the start of Act 2 which ends with you getting a jedi padawan companion.

The first quest "The Padawan" starts with you heading out to get a sith holocron to use as a bribe to get a bunch of assassins to attack the republic base. Ive completed this part and received the next quest.

This quest is called "Laying the Trap" and the objective is to attack a group of republic troops and steal a republic holocom.

Does anyone know how to complete the "Laying the Trap" quest? Is it bugged?

Every time i reset the quest and start over the marker on my map disappears and i am not able to get the republic holocom. I know where to go to attack the republic troops but no one drops the holocom.

Also my personal holocom indicator is always on now while im doing these quests. Both objectives for Laying the Trap and The Padawan quests on my main screen (not the quest menu) says Use your personal holocom, but every time i use mine it plays the same conversation over and over.....basically telling me to take the sith holocron to the guy from the last quest i did.

I cant progress my story any further until i can complete these quests, please help! Anyone!!!!

First time I have ever heard of it...I really think you will need to put a ticket in with as much detail as possible

I just finished this quest last night. The holocron you have to find is sitting on the ground in one of the back rooms. Easy to find. Just kill your way through and pick it up.

I'm having the same problem. I've killed mobs for over 2 hours and cannot get the holocron to drop. Someone else was doing the quest and said it dropped from him in a few minutes.

It doesn't drop. It's a static item, on the floor or a table as I recall ( it's been a little while since I've done it).

I did this last night. It works fine.

I'm assuming based on earlier dialogue choices in the quest there are a couple of possible "routes" to this quest. When in an earlier dialogue with the Imperial Contract Zash provides, I decided I would show her I had faith in her power (As opposed to prey on her insecurities).

Fast forward to Laying the Trap, go to the map location, and there is a single guard standing in a tent, who is holding a holo communicator and using it, also has about 2k more HP than the rest of the trash there, and has a different name.

He drops it.

The holocron doesn't drop. It's sitting on a table.

I'm having the same problem. I have been farming for a week and the holocom still won't drop. I have sent in two tickets and both have been escalated. Still nothing.
The Empire is not evil, and the Republic is not is all a matter of opinion.
