Legacy Level Guide

Below you will find each objective required to complete the Legacy Tier of the Dark vs. Light event. Notice the “spoiler” button associated with each objective. If you would like more information on how to complete that objective, simply click that objectives spoiler button for more details.

To participate in the Dark vs. Light event, you must use a character created on or after June 28, 2016. You will know if your character is participating in the event if they have the following icon present on the Character Select screen.

Legacy Tier Objectives:
The Story Continues

To complete the objective “The Story Continues,” you must take a Dark vs. Light event character and gain enough experience to gain Character level 50. In order to reach level 50, you need to engage in activities that increase your experience. This includes Missions, Warzones, Flashpoints, and more! To track your progress, simply look at your character’s current level, listed next to your portrait.

Once your Character reaches level 50, you will receive the Achievement “Dark vs Light: The Story Continues” to note that you have completed this objective.

Flashpoint Responder

To complete the objective “Flashpoint Responder”, you must take a Dark vs. Light event character and complete the following Story Flashpoints:
  • As a Republic Character:
    • Esseles
    • Taral V
    • Maelstrom Prison
  • As an Empire Character:
    • Black Talon
    • Boarding Party
    • Foundry

Story Flashpoints are action-packed adventures made to be played by characters either Solo, or with a group of other players. We recommend playing through these Flashpoints with a group of players using the Group Finder. To use the Group Finder, follow these steps.

First, start by clicking on the Group Finder icon located at the top left of your mini-map. This will bring up the Group Finder interface.

Second, with the Group Finder interface showing, you are only a few clicks away from the action! At the top of the interface, select your preferred playstyle between Damage, Healing, and Tanking (note: you can select more than one option).

Lastly, for this objective we recommend playing Tactical versions of the Flashpoints. Tactical Flashpoints are meant to be a normal challenge for a group of four players. Keep in mind that you have to complete specific Flashpoints to complete the “Flashpoint Responder” objective, refer to the Republic or Imperial character section above for which Flashpoints you need. To queue for a specific Tactical Flashpoint follow these steps:

Look at the Story Mode Operations and Hard Mode Flashpoints sections and make sure that they are not checked.

Once you uncheck those options, scroll down to the Tactical Flashpoints section and click on the selection filter button in the top right of that section. Select only the Flashpoints you need to complete. Press Accept to close that window.

With your Flashpoints selected, press the Join Queue button and wait for a pop-up indicating a group has been found and allowing to join the Flashpoint. Press ACCEPT to hop in! Repeat these steps and complete each Flashpoint in the “Flashpoint Responder” objective to complete it.
