This is not a guide (unfortunately).

Last night me and my guild master were scouring through cleared Scum and Villainy looking for odd spots we could use the Dreadful Orb at, we combed the desert and even wasted the 24 hour cooldown on feeding the Sarlacc with myself while having the visual effect from the Orb.

Official dev response on the question of Dreadful Orb and Darvannis was: "You shouldn't play with strange objects you find in the caves. Bad things could happen."

It would mean that orb can be used practically anywhere, not necessarily Darvannis.

Did anyone discover any out of place locations at Darvannis? I encourage you to look around and tell us where it would be sound to try and use the Orb. While TFB had big, red letters on the screen saying that there is something up, there might not be such notice this time.

Come on, let's do some search!

Haven't done Scum and villainy yet, and I don't have the orb. (Ugh, i need a guild...) I was curious though, what's this about a 24-hour-cooldown with a sarlacc?
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.

Nope. Will get my GM to do so today.

The "official word" comes from Dulfy interview. http://dulfy.net/2013/03/25/swtor-ri...brian-audette/

We tried to see if something activates in the instance if one person will jump down the sarlacc pit with the animation from the orb.

We were in 16 man instance. Friendly Fire is only doing 16 man raids.

There's a cave before the thrasher boss I believe? It's where all the arms trader trash is. In the cave, there's only one skeleton...idk if that'll be it, but worth a shot. There's trash before the cave. It's a little path that leader to the left of the main underworld arms traders trash thing...looks like a market.
