SWTOR: Rakghouls Everywhere by Isriana SWTOR: Rakghouls Everywhere by Isriana
Thanks, game - I can't think of a lovelier way to start a new session than being instantly attacked by a horde of husks plague carriers. :XD: So yeah, the zombie apocalypse rakghoul event started and I found out that I picked the most unfortunate time to do my diplomatic missions on Alderaan. Not that the outbreak is limited to the planet - I can't even check my mail on Dromund Kaas these days without someone randomly exploding on my face and infecting me with the rat rakghoul plague.

When i'm on a Rakghoul infested world, I just stealth to the nearest outpost, and I don't care how long it takes, and takes a taxi to the nearest starport, and goes to Tython or some sh!t

This totally happened to me on Corellia with my agent. Logged off in front of my mission entrance and the next time I log on there is a rakghoul event. And guess where their ambush site was?

The zombie apocalypse is back :x . It's on Tatooine this time. I think I will avoid SWtOR until the 12th when the Bounty Hunter Week returns

Ugh....I thought that rakghoul nonsense ended when Darth Malak freaking reduced Taris to rubble in KOTOR...

Well fuckberries...An interesting side note is that some weird magical amulet that ended up on Taris due to a mandalorian starship crashing there is the reason for the plague. SO sayeth the star wars comic books.

Also I wonder what happened to those undercity peoples in KOTOR that went searching after paradise when I gave them the datapads.

They just about reached the Promised Land as Malak started his attack, so they survived the initial bombardment and had supplies to last a while... but eventually they died out about halfway between KotOR1 and tOR. Republic players find journals in the ruins that reveal their sad fate.

On a related note, the Taris government supposedly had time to go down into a secure bunker that was even lower than the Undercity and be frozen in carbonite. I consider that utter BS. Malak gave no warning that he was going to bombard the planet - he didn't even bring up the Sith troops that were occupying the city. There was no reason for the government to go into hiding.
Fortunately, Imperial players get to close that particular plot hole with some well-placed explosives.

Why take a darkside point and subject them to immediate doom? Giving the Outcasts the way to find the Promised Land (and giving them a supply of the Rakghoul vaccine) was never a guarantee. Even in KotOR1, it was clear to me that what Revan gave them was a chance for a better life. We never knew in KotOR1 if they'd make it, we just had to hope.
As I said, tOR reveals that they made it. The hope builds that maybe you'll find their descendants... and then each new journal gets more and more bleak until you find the last one and know that they didn't survive the whole 300 years :(

They need to do that event again. I had so much fun ganking reps in the tunnels and spreading the plague on the fleet :D

Rakghouls are always on Taris, and in the endgame flashpoints 'Kaon Under Siege' and 'Lost Island'. Kaon Under Siege plays out like a full-on zombie apocalypse... which is why I hate it

Exactly how I felt about the whole stupid event, especially because there was an actual achievement for blowing up in other player-characters' faces and infecting them... and the fact that they were sick enough to make an "infected" or "plagued" customisation for nearly every companion so you could have your whole team running around as zombies. Ugh.

Zombies...in space!


Question: If the plague is spread across planets, how does it survive the void of space? I assume the rakghouls can't fly a ship...can they?

No, but they were able to infect players who visited Alderaan - who then took it with them to wherever they traveled and infected everyone who happened to bump into them... :XD: I think it took less than a day for the plague to be found literally anywhere.

Hah. Whoops. Poor terrified Avaleah and Tharan. I was wondering what was up with all this stuff I was hearing about the rakghoul plague hitting Alderaan. I don't have anybody there right now, so I was just occasionally seeing glowing green people having coughing fits and praying it wasn't contagious. xD

Also, I like the poster collection I see going on your walls. :D (Nightwish and LotR. Excellent combo)

Just an FYI, if you're doing the event missions, there's a Bind on Legacy relic you can buy off one of the vendors that you can use for the 6 hour immunity.  It becomes a lot cheaper than buying the vaccines really fast. (Especially if you're me and you have 18 characters >.<)

So glad I did not participate in this event! I was on Hoth at the time, finishing the second half of my Consular class mission... after I've already completed the damn planet of its missions (excluding the Heroics) & got Felix Iresso as my companion. Still, it has its perks. No absolute chance of a Rakghoul plague to happen on that frozen tundra of a planet. By Sunday, I finally started on Belsavis, which would have been a terrible place for the plague to happen. Like, the zombie virus hitting a maximum security prison.

I don't have a female sith warrior yet. The one I'm talking about is my male Zabrak. Internally, he would want to do that, but in all reality he would shuttle to the Imperial fleet to avoid the risk of teleporting to an infected town.
