Hey everyone, the Rakghoul event started in the early mornings of Jan 21 (for North Americans) and I was able to catch about an hr of the event before the servers went down. Here is what I have so far in terms of a guide for the Rakghoul event. Alot of it is fairly self-explanatory but it might help some.

Link to guide: http://dulfy.net/2014/01/21/swtor-th...e-event-guide/

Alternative link (incase site goes down):

How to Start

You will find new terminals on the fleet. Interacting with it will give you a small cutscene and a quest. You will also receive the codex entry for THORN. You will complete this quest once you arrive inside the Rakghoul tunnels in Alderaan, which will reward you with 8730 credits, 2 Basic Commendations and THORN Booster Pin (green rep item).

You will need to head out to Alderaan and talk to Doctor Ressel (Empire) outside House Thul or Tralie Masoon (Republic) outside House Organa. You will also get the codex entry Rakghouls on Alderaan when you arrive on Alderaan.

Once you have talked to them, you will need to travel to the location of The Spike, a giant drill located in King’s Pass to access the Rakghoul tunnels. Walking near The Spike will give you the codex entry for it.

Rakghoul tunnels and dallies

You will find a bunch of dallies on the mission terminal as well as the datapad nearby. You will also get the codex entry Rakghoul Propagation when you enter the tunnels. Alot of the dallies are fairly self explanatory so I won't bother with it here. If you need any help you can check the guide linked above. These are Empire version of the names, I will add the Republic ones once I get there.
  • Contagion Zone: [Daily] Collecting Rakghouls – 5 minutes Reward: 8730 credits, 2 Basic Commendations and 1 THORN Booster Pin (green rep item).
  • Contagion Zone: [Daily] Dissecting the Plague Reward: 8730 credits, 2 Basic Commendations and 1 THORN Booster Pin (green rep item).
  • [Daily] The Tunnel Network Reward: 8730 credits, 2 Basic Commendations, 1 THORN Booster Pin (green rep item), and 1 Rakghoul DNA Canister
  • Infested Pathways: [Daily] All that Remains Reward: 8730 credits, 2 Basic Commendations and 1 THORN Booster Pin (green rep item).
  • The Epicenter – [Heroic 4] Fungal Corruption Reward: 13620 credits, 4 Basic Commendations, 1 Engraved Rakghoul Claw (blue rep item), 2 Rakghoul DNA Canisters

Rakghoul Tunnels
Rakghoul tunnel is divided into 3 sections: Contagion Zone, Infested Pathways, The Epicenter. They are all interconnected with each other. Epicenter is where you will find the Jawa vendor Jeelvic and is also the location for the [Heroic 4]

Jeelvic the Jawa Vendor
Everyone’s favourite Jawa vendor Jeelvic is back! He can be found in The Epicenter area of the Rakghoul tunnels but before you bolt your way to there, grab a one time quest off the Contagion Zone as that will not only lead you to Jeelvic but also give you 1 Rakghoul DNA Canister.
What does Jeelvic sell? Lots of stuff
  • Black-Green crystals
  • Pets
  • Infected Mounts
  • Exchange old Rakghoul DNA samples from last event back in 2012 for Rakghoul DNA Canister at a ratio of 50:1 (50 samples for 1 canister)
Plaguetail Kowakian Monkey-lizard: 10 Rakghoul DNA Canister 1 Barnacle of the Eyeless 1 Symbiotic Fungal Bloom 1 Exotic Plague Specimen
Infected Dewback 50 Rakghoul DNA Canister 1 Barnacle of the Eyeless 1 Symbiotic Fungal Bloom 4 Exotic Plague Specimen
Infected Varactyl 25 Rakghoul DNA Canister 1 Barnacle of the Eyeless 1 Symbiotic Fungal Bloom 2 Exotic Plague Specimen

Titles
Character specific titles:
  • [name], The Rakghoul Nightmare - You earned this title by participating in rakghoul plague relief efforts on Alderaan, Corellia and Tatooine.
  • [name], Unseen Assailant - You earned this title by defeating The Eyeless during the Rakghoul Resurgence.
Legacy Titles
  • First Responder (Newcomer standing)
  • THORN Specialist (Hero standing)
  • The Neutralizer (Legend standing)

Reputation Rewards
Can't do a table properly on reddit so here is a screencap of it. This does not include the Jeelvic stuff yet, some of which requires legend standing.

Is this a 55-only event or lower levels can participate as well?

Yep.

After the first attack against a rakghoul or infected human prowling the tunnels, the enemies that spawn afterwards scale accordingly to your level; Good show.

I love that Bioware is starting to play with timed quests.
I know in WoW they were sometimes annoying but it adds a bit of urgency to the quest.

Woot! The Raks are back. About to log in. You know.... I feel like we owe Dulfy a gift or something.
