Exactly how did it find itself on Taris? and that too Taris? I know how it orginated and all with the Muur Talisman.
But im missing the taris part. Can Anyone Elaborate? My second question, was Taris ever rebuilt to it former self and cured of the Rakghoul plague? if so how?

Dude, use Wookiepedia. And yes, Taris was rebuilt but it never regained its former glory fully.

Muur made the talisman to create an ever-expanding army of Rakghouls he could control to conquour the galaxy. Also poured his soul and spirit into it so he'd live forever.

And then... He died. His physical body that is. Some sith fought over his stuff and one ended up taking the Talisman. For reasons unknown (And time unknown), he (She?) ended up on Taris and died in a cave in.

That's LITERALLY all the information given on how it ended up on Taris. Some dude(tte?) killed Muur and he/she or someone else took the Talisman... Then died. Without even getting a name or a gender.

A Jedi Shadow named Celeste Morne hunting a Jedi Padawan (A story for another time) ended up finding the Talisman and sealing herself away in stasis during the Mandalorian Wars (Another story, another time). Revan showed up on the scene some time later and found that even without the Talisman, the Rakghoul were still multiplying and spreading. Bummer.

In game. We're 315 years after Revan. Rakghoul are breeding somehow (But we're never told if 'standard' Rakghoul can breed or not anyway.) Stuff happens (Spoilers!)

3000 years later aaaaand...

Clone Wars. Taris is back in the news. It's rebuilt and free of Rakghouls (Evidently. No information on how either happened) and is generally a 'meh' place to live. It's not amazing, not horrible. Upper levels are nice, lower levels are scummy. Standard city planet. The senator representing the place joins the neutral system alliance when the war comes near... And that's pretty much it. Warlord Zsinj claims it after Endor, but the imps and new 'public take it back in a joint strike effort.

The Vong end up taking the planet when they come to town but don't destroy it like Curoscant for some reason (Possibly implying some parts of the planet were left bare? No information there.) but the world is taken back when they're defeated.

Last we hear of it, Boba Fett's there relaxin' in his private pad he owns on the planet.

TL;DR: Some guy/girl killed Muur and they (Or someone else) ran to Taris and died in a cave in. Taris ends up rebuilt by the Clone Wars, but isn't very important... The Vong don't even care to smash it up. But hey, Boba owns an apartment there at least.

the talisman ended up in hands of a rogue jedi or something and after order 66 Darth Vader and a squadron of stormtroopers were dispatched to kill her, but the troopers were made into rakghouls and Vader had to retreat. later the talisman was used to transform of the crew of Imperial warship Pellaeon(was it?) into something similar to Rakghouls. Can't they just Orbital strike Taris before rebuilding it?
