I just remember that talking to the droid he has us drain his coolant and it shows up in mission items, and since you apparently don't have to click on it for the quest, it's easy to overlook.

I'd hate to ask someone to blow their jerky on this, but can someone please go to Ilum and mess around with it there. I've supplied coordinates to the Imperial Tauntaun's that are green (there are 2 sets) and it has been comfirmed by myself and someone else that they are mirrored on the Republic side. They were added to the game and are labled uniquely...there must be a reason for it.

There is also a Champion level "Enduring Tauntaun" that I have never seen before that I killed the other night. I would try all of this out myself but I am in rehearsal all day. That mob is located in the upper East corner of the map past the Poisonous Strategies Heroic Area for Imperials. (On top, not down below in the canyon where you head to get the Willpower Datacron.)

If I'd classify what planet I got the bird pet from, I'd say Alderaan, but in actuality, it was Tatooine where I was able to manifest the pet. That may be the case here with the jerky ingredients/recipe mainly coming from Hoth and previous mentions in tooltips/patch notes of hoth pets being available. We can think of it as a "Hoth pet" but it manifests on another planet entirely.

I remember seeing your post but I don't have it saved, where are these Tauntaun? I'm on Ilum at the Imperial base and, right now, I just see the ones that have always been there.

Also, the Enduring Tauntaun has always been there.

Nevermind, I found your old post. The ones you mention have always been there.

Not sure if this is in anyway related to the ongong mystery but the SWTOR Community Manager has been tweeting since yesterday that something important will happen or be announced on Tatooine tomorrow (Sunday) morning before "mid-day". In an interview he said: “Make sure you are on the servers on sunday morning. Tatooine in particular.”

I'd love to hang out and wait on my server but I will be enroute from the Bay Area to Nevada. How I'd love a quick travel option for that.

I have been farming this Tauntaun and the blues/greens he seems to drop for weeks now, well before the 1.2 patch. I highly doubt he has anything to do with it, as he has been around for a long time.
