Is the HK quest on Dromund kaas broken? I have spent 3 hrs yesterday and I spent 4 hrs today combing the temple approah from the camp to the temple door, moving only within the white ring that shows up after the scanning is complete. I cannot find the damn thing.

I spent 30 min before i found the hoth part and i was lucky on taris as some other player found it less than 5 min after I arrived. I'm only missing the two capital world parts. I'm not looking forward to searching for the Coruscant part either.

I have tried this quest several times over the years, but I have always been stumped by this search and two times have the quest been reset but game updates.

Am I just very unlucky or is this quest broken???

I got it just a few days ago, so unlucky I guess.

I have also scrounged for this one several times over the las couple years, and usually got bored and gave up. Found it last night between the two roads, right near the elite mob in the middle section. So long searched for and finally found.

Jumped to Hoth to chase down that piece and found it as I ran up to the wreckage. Cleared 4 mobs and searched for the hell of it. HK component within 10 metres. Should have heard the cursing right after I unearthed it lol

Based on everything that has been said about this quest, I'd say you're just unlucky.

Go to the nearest casino and spent a couple hundreds $ to appease RNG gods.

A wise man once said that you sould not gamble more money than you can afford to lose, and I cannot afford it right now. Besides the biggst prize I've ever won is 100 Dkr. (15$)

That said I would forego a couple of meals if I could buy the damn thing, either on the GTN or in the ca$h shop

You don't need to do the area from the camp to the bottom of the steps.

Check if anyone else is also looking for the part. If someone else finds it, it will be available to all for about a minute and then reset somewhere new. If someone else finds it, and you don't notice, it could get reset to an area you've already covered.

It can be rough. I spent 3 weeks looking 1 to 2 hrs a night on Taris before I found the chassis

We had a team of 3 people and that really seemed to help us find the parts in a reasonable amount of time. Unfortunately, we still don't have HK-51 because the final part in the Hard Mode Flashpoint wasn't clickable. Friends who obtained HK-51 swore that it should be. I haven't gone back to try a second time, yet...
