Gree event question

Tell me if I'm understanding this right: There's a weekly reputation cap and the event only lasts a week, so I can only get Newcomer status at this point? Is it coming back soon after? Seems weird to limit it like that.

You gather more rep tokens than you can consume this week , then use the remainder next week and then the week after and so on ( if you get lots ).

It's a recurring event. The last two times it was around it was here for two weeks each time, and they haven't given any indicators of an "end" to it so it will be back. We just don't know when yet.

Ah, I see. Hadn't thought of that. I feel a bit silly now

Seems weird they're only doing it for a single week this time though, since it was 2 weeks the last times.

Well they are changing the event for next time so I guess they thought people would want to play one last time in this way. I thought the daily comms would be basic comms but they are classic ones. I'm sure they will be basic when the event returns as a 55 event.

I'm not familiar with the Gree event & looked it up. Appears to be a series/group of missions on Illum to build reputation which you can then get rewards...

- Scalene Armor (look like Tron)
- Nifty hamster ball speeder
- a rare pet drop

Is there anything else?

There are also some legacy bound weapons but that is it so far. The speeder was added in the 2nd time the event happened so I wouldn't be shocked if more items are added in the future. Say when the event is retuned for level 55.

So I just hit level 45, which makes me eligible. Where do I go...direct to Ilum or to Fleet? Does the Gree event require a group or are the missions able to be played by individuals like on any other world?

I think you have to get the initial mission on the fleet, from the terminal thingies. There are dailies that can be soloed as well as heroics that need groups, and some pvp ones that wouldn't hurt having a group for also.

Another question for those more knowledgeble than me: Can I only get the Gree Ops (Xeno-something) from the Gree ship, i.e. I need to achieve newcomer rank and get there first?

Yes -- you must have newcomer rank to be able to do Xenoanalyst II.

To the other person -- there are news stations on the fleet, you will see them in almost every outer junction. You can pick up an initial quest here (though not required, highly recommended). At level 45, you can participate -- but you will want to find a group to do the quests with. The area is tuned to level 50 -- and there is no longer a bolster to help out.
