I apologize for not giving a link up front. I'm on the road and not at a reliable PC. I thought the information I found via a Twitter feed from @Rockjaw might help solve the mystery and didn't want an opportunity to pass by unnoticed.

I'm "full of it"? Wow, that's pretty harsh when all someone is trying to do but help brainstorm.

There's allegedly a Contests and Events folder in the Community Forums now, I couldn't find it or I would have provided a link, but maybe there will be a more detailed tickler on what is happening on Tatooine Sunday.

True if you're coming out from the base. On the other hand, if you consider "first dune you see" from the standpoint of the overall planet, left takes you in the other direction - this would also make it the same direction for the Empire to go, which would make sense.

On the other hand, going left from the Imperial and Republic Dune sea outposts leads you to a collection of broken down sandcrawlers in both cases, so it may well be something happening in these two separate locations...

I know I'm maybe dumb but, a long time ago (about a century) in an ocean not that far away, a ship sink no ? We're in a Dune SEA.

Just an idea I don't know what to do with that?

It's Tatooine, there are dunes everywhere and as someone stated before it's probably in the Dune Sea due to the fact that both factions can get there. Question is if the Jerky is needed to summon whatever is there.

Not sure if this is related, or even NEW, but I went to the Open world PvP arena on Tatooine and there are now "black market vendors" I don't remember being there, a GTN terminal, and I have even found chests in the area with WZ commendations and PvP GEAR in them!

Many people don't know about this area - it is immediately to the rigth of the Dune Sea in between the two faction bases. Right now I am closer to the imperial side and at -336, -1049.

I have only checked one Black Market Vendor so far (there are 3), but he was the same as the PvP vendor on fleet - at least he looked that way. I never payed enough attention on fleet to know if he has any special crystals or whatnot. I will report back after checking the other two...

From another thread:

"Is anybody here already got a tauntaun?I actually got mine! ^_^

You just have to bring the unusual egg in hoth and bring it on the top of the mountain where you could freeze the buff that you get from tatooine then, BOOM!!"

If you google "Wreck of the Stardream" you'll find out that this is a future event in which a ship carrying rakghoul disease crashes on tatooine infecting sandpeople! There will be 2 quests related to the area and even an "Infected Trapjaw" boss to kill! Stay tuned for more info on that matter, because it will surely be enjoyable, but don't expect to find a tauntaun there...

Where did this info come from?
