I was afraid of that. I just hit 42, unless I do a massive grind, I won't hit 50 before the event ends.

Should be the whole Patch 1.7, as the event is part of it:

There already is. The speeder right outside the imperial base (I'm assuming the republic speeder is just as accessible) can take you directly to the western PvP area and you don't encounter any NPCs on your way there.

This looks more than an event, as it looks more like an Ops with Bosses. If it is only going to be for 2 weeks, I find that disconcerting. This should be for at least a month so that guilds can Ops and fight the bosses together. All the time and effort put into this and it's only up for 2 weeks? What a waste. It's going to take people a few days just to figure thins stuff out. Allow more than 2 weeks Bioware.

I really hope this isn't a PVP only event. If it is...i'm very unhappy.

Furthermore, upon looking at the new armor. The design looks horrible. Yes, a Tron look is cool, but the actual armor you put it on is UGLY! WHy not allow the Tron look on what you are already wearing? Why can't Bioware design good armor? Dunce hats, cyborg, and 2 ft long spikes? Seriously? 90% of the armor in this game is ugly. Half the stuff that actually could look decent is only blue or green level, not mod-able. Why is it always some hogwash you cant COLOR THE WAY YOU WANT IT!!! Good armor would be: Darth Vader, Darth Maul, Darth Talon, Dark Side Luke, Ventress. Get the idea now? Yes, stuff that actually looks good.

Also, I found it strange that the video had a Sexual Content warning, yet there was none in the video.

Unless they "enable" the PvP scaling of PvP levels 10-49, it will be next to impossible for lowbies. It will still be difficult for lowbies even if they do, due to the level of gear of many of the hardcore PvPers. We need, as usual, more information.

Has it been confirmed that we will be forced to PVP in order to partake in this event and content? If not, some confirmation would be super.

Can we get an official response, is this going to be a PvP, PvE or PvPvE event?

It looks like it is going to be PvE from the small bits of info we have seen, but the western shelf is where PvP has been known to take place. So is this the PvP revamp or a 2 week event and open world PvP or however PvP on ilum is going to change is going to be something different?

Relics of the Gree was said to be a recurring event, huh? there is no specified time frame. Could be next year, could be 2 months. Could be every month. Afterall there is nothing else to do on the Western Ice Shelf if the even is not up. The event is the "ilum revamp", no?

Unknown. Would be nice of them to say.

Also, would be nice to know if this event is tied to the repeatable monthly Gree rep grind or a one off.
