It would be nice to carefully read how the rewards work. Keep in mind that you need to complete previous tiers to get the higher rewards. So, if you are gunning for Eternal Level to get the new companion, you must complete all previous tiers (Heroic, Valiant, Legacy and Champion) to be eligible for Eternal level.

Also, since the DvL reward packs and all items inside them are bound to one character, you should create a strategy so that the same character knocks off the last achievement for every tier. That way all rewards go to the same character and you have a bigger chance to unlock whole armor sets.

Here's my own strategy:

-Roll a Jedi Guardian and a Sith Juggernaut, both specced as Tanks.
-Since the Jedi and their companions can use all weapons, that will be my main DvL character.
-The Jedi finishes the first two tiers (Heroic and Valiant), unlocking the first packs and the first 3 pieces of the bind-to-legacy XP armor that any other character can use.
-Then the Sith finishes their class quests, does Shadow of Revan, Ziost and KotFE -- but NOT the stronghold mission. That will lock the 3rd tier! That way, I can do whatever achievement I want with any other DvL character and still save the rewards for my Jedi.
-For the non-solo Flashpoints I use either the Jedi or the Sith. Since they are Tanks, queues pop relatively fast.
-Once I get everything done up to Eternal level, I'll decide if the Legendary tier is worth a shot. Since this entails doing every Hard Mode FP out there plus a few Ops and World Bosses and I'm not that good with end-level content, I'll probably not even try. If I do try, and if I manage to get it done, I'll probably let the Jedi buy the HK unlock for last and do the 50 kills.

Anyway, good luck! And if you decide to do the DvL event on Ebon Hawk, drop me a line. Maybe we can do the HMs together
Hohoho, now I have a referral link, too!

Legendary is not difficult either. Several of my guild members are just waiting for Chapter 16 to drop in order to complete the final 3 tiers

IF and only if you can find groups, aye. I've been hitting Group Finder for a month, and still have three HMs to get impside (Depths of Manaan being the constantly finished, but no credit given, one of the three). If you are a member of a guild who runs together, you can get through Legendary pretty quickly.

Waiting three to four hours, nightly, and maybe getting a chance at a run (that may or may not collapse) is a special kind of hell.

1). am I too late to start this event? how long does it take to fully complete it? time to play is rather tight for me right now due to other obligations i'll be able to play like an hour or 2 a day until September, at which point i'll be able to go hardmode and no-life it for ages.
An hour or two DAILY? That's far more than I have time to do, and I plan to do the companion level - I'm probably 90% of the way there right now. You should have until late October (best guess we have right now). Leveling is easy...class quests + Heroics and you never need to do anything else.
All warfare is based on deception If his forces are united, separate them If you are far from the enemy, make him believe you are near A leader leads by example not by force

Also, they have no Jawa Scrap, and don't always drop a companion gift.

The Cartel Market ones are much better, because you can sell the contents (after the usual 36 hour delay), get two random items instead of one, always get a companion gift, and get some Jawa Scrap... but you have to throw more money at the game.
Wait a second...you can't even sell any of the rewards? That makes the whole thing a complete waste of time.

Can't sell the contents from the Force-Bound DvL Packs, but you can from the Cartel Market version.

Just a fair warning - at the moment there are several bugs that if you are unlucky will prevent you progressing past tear 3. They don't seams to be getting fix - like Depths of Manaan flashpoint not counting in achievements. There are some walk abounds... That don't work form all people.
So if you want a couple of packs, you may enjoy it, completing tires past 3 may never happen regardless of what you do and when you join.

Legendary is easy stuff. I finished a week or two before the Rakghoul event and only had that, which is done now, and Chapter 16 to finish up.
