Empire and Remembrance Day Rewards

Here you’ll find the various things you can spend your hard-won coins on. This list only includes the items that are unique to Empire Day, meaning it will not show the “regular” event rewards that appear on other reward vendors. If you want a closer view of the reward, click on the image to see it enlarged in a new tab. 

IMPORTANT NOTE: The Ranite Geode and Box of Flawed Crystals can only be opened by a Master Jedi. Opening a Ranite Geode guarantees one of six color crystals (3 pairings). While cheaper, the Box of Flawed Crystals only has a CHANCE to contain anything.  For more information on the colors that can be obtained, check out the forum post about lightsaber colors and where to find them
