Not sure if there is answer anywhere else but I couldn't find one myself.

Is there a mission to recruit Darth Hexid? If so, how do we go about to start it or is it part of "A Traitor Among the Chiss?"

Thank you for any future help. Much appreciated.

In order to be eligible to recruit Darth Hexid you have to have met the requirement of completing either United Forces: Group Recon or United Forces: Warzone Recon prior to today's update. If you did not then you are not eligible. If you did then you'll have an in-game mail with an item that can be used to recruit Hexid immediately (subject will be: "Your Darth Hexid Companion Reward), or you can complete the Alliance Alert once you have completed Chapter 9 of KotET (if you haven't already). Unfortunately, if you didn't complete either of the recon achievements prior to today then you missed out on Darth Hexid.

Oh, that's why ... I only completed Chapter 9 of KOTFE so far, not chapter 9 of KOTET ...

I'm using the mailed communicator , then.

To clarify, this may be a typo by Musco. I'm not sure why Hexid requires chapter 9 of Eternal Throne while other alliance alerts unlock after chapter 9 of Fallen Empire. But this is what he said. One thing to note, unlocking Hexid via the email token doesn't affect your ability to recruit her through the alliance alert and doing the story later.

I guess it must be bugged, since I finished both KoTFE and KoTET expansions (all chapters on both) and I dont have the alliance alert for Darth Hexid. I did get the thing in the in-game mail though. Is there a hidden achievement for getting Hexid via story?

Edit: Nevermind. I was expecting a Hexid alert, not a Lana alert. lol

I've made all kotet, kotfe and stories FPs except the OP gods from the machine and I've nothing in alerts.
If things weren't worded wrong, the event was to get her straight without meeting prerequisites and doing chapter 9 of whatever was the only one? Does she require to have finished some companion recruitment from alerts?

You also have to have completed either one of the two achievements by the deadline. If you completed one of them on the last day you may have been missed in the granting process, but they we're working on that. If you completed the achievement requirement and didn't get the in-game mail then you should contact customer service.

If you conpleted the achievement before Nov 28th, and are eligible for Darth Hexid, you get an in game mail with an item attached. Theoretically, you can either use the item to recruit her immediately, or recruit her via a "mission". According to the email, "You can recruit Darth Hexid as part of a mission on the planet of Odessen once you complete the Knights of the Eternal Throne expansion story (my emphasis)." And since KotET is nine chapters, that would agree with the statement from Musco, linked earlier.

I logged in Tuesday after the patch, got the token in my mail, and unlocked her immediately. I then went and did the new Chiss mission. I did all of the KotFE, KotET, Iokath, and Umbara stories prior to the patch.

I didn't have any alerts when I first logged in, before retrieving the token and running the Chiss mission. I thought I might see the Hexid alert afer running the Chiss mission, but no such luck. I have no alerts now. Zip. Zero. Nada.

For companions with similar options (Nico Okarr, Shae Vizla, Master Ranos), using the "token" does not affect your ability to get the recruitment "mission" for them later on (or at least it didn't before the last patch) . Unlike those other companions, when i used the Hexid item, I got some command points when I used the item, so it seems that the item auto-completed the Hexid recruitment mission, and I can no longer get it.

As an interesting side note, I have several characters that did the recruitment missions for those other "promo" companions, and as I was going through them yesterday, I used the recruiting "tokens", and got a message saying I had already done the mission to recruit whavefer companion ... and I also got 75 command points when I used the tokens, like I had completed some "mission" by using the recruitment item.

I have saved the Hexid token on a couple of my level 70 characters, but it will be a while before I get around to running them through the KotET story and see if they actually get a mission to recruit Hexid after I finish KotET, and whether it's really worth the wait to do it. If it's like the "missions" to recruit Shae and Ranos, I suspect it won't be.

It's exactly like the "missions" to recruit Shae and Ranos. And starts from an Alliance Alert in the same manor.
