4. Go to outlaws den get ganked by 10 imps (What sadist made that decision?)
5. Go to imp alt go to outlaws den and get the item.
6. Maintenance
7. Decide to be a night owl and start searching the endar spire. Find piece over an hour later (think to myself "frustrating but maybe I'm just unlucky")
8. Thankfully manage to group with two others and we knock out the coruscant one and one of the group drops (No problem still got a searching buddy)
9. Search Ambria's Fury for what seems like forever non grouped person finds it. Groupmate gets it but I do not as I am on the other side of the wreckage and do not get there in time (Frustration levels rising but God Bless my partner who stays to help me find it). After about another 1/2 hour of searching call it a night (Still didn't find the Ambria's Fury piece).

All I can think of having reached this point is what an annoying and massive waste of time it has been for something which has it's premise based on such a simple thing. I believe Fez Burba made that scanner because it SUCKS! And the worst part is that, even though I think whomever deigned this is a complete and utter sadist laughing at me from across the internet, I'm still going to go back tomorrow and keep searching for that worthless piece of trash on hoth. That being said making the method of getting something annoying/long does not make it special, Bioware.
The HK-51 chain was some of the most fun I'd had in a long long time. The Outlaws Den is the only pvp factor, and a very minor detail IMO. For your sacrifice you get an incredibly powerful companion...

Wait, WHAT? You HAVE to go into a FFA PvP zone in order to progress with the HK-51 content? Aw, hell no.

Look, I realize my highest-level character is in her mid-30's (altitis sucks) & the odds of me ever getting there are vanishingly slim, but c'mon...the notion that people are essentially forced to (potentially) PvP in order to advance in PvE content puts this beyond the pale. I guess that's another piece of content gated away from me.
Two minutes to Belgium!

It's actually KotOR II she is thinking of. You have to collect the pieces of HK-47 to reactivate him.

Statement: This definition, I am told, is subject to interpretation. Obviously, love is a matter of odds. Not many meatbags could make such a shot, and fewer would derive love from it. Yet for me, love is knowing your target, putting them in your targeting reticle, and together, achieving a singular purpose, against statistically long odds."

Lol, this sounds so cowardly. I went with an entire 8-man of guildies/allies, the belief being that if any1 gets attacked, we return fire, otherwise, we keep using /say and typing "peace". None of us got attacked, and none of us attacked anyone either.

Being full WH probably helped to put people off taking potshots. Just go in a group. Simples.
You said you would never let go... you lied.

I had a really good time doing it last night. It was like a world event where people in general were helping each other and I was running open world quests with my guildies. We were lucky in that the Den was very civilized on our server as was Hoth. Finding the parts was slightly frustrating but only took 10 mins per since it was peak time.

Lots of fun!

I kept playing through the bugs and disconnects to see the new questline for HK and the Cartel Market goodies. If you notice, they put this update at the same time as most people's subs came due for the month...clue????

Wow this post gave me cancer.

A. There was a thread where people were posting when there subs expired and they were all over the board. The date having anything to do with sub dates is just a conspiracy theory.
B. Yes it probably was intentional but it's not because the devs think it's amusing, but to please the PvP community. Every event has done this to some extent to and a lot of people think it's a good thing as open world PvP is lacking and desperately needing these boosts.
C. There is still a team dedicated to SWTOR and I don't think that will change anytime soon (unless F2P flops)
D. Don't let the door hit you on the way out.

If the quest is so awful and hard here's what you do....you don't do it. Simple as that.
You don't NEED HK-51, you've probably been fine for months just using your current 6 companions. And I love the rage after a half hour of searching for a piece...
You are very encouraged to do it with friends so here's what you do...get some friends together.
If you get it fast: great! If not: Who cares you got to hang out doing some group content that isn't he same flash points over again doing something new.
