Boonta Eve Celebration on Empire in Flames

Hello? Yes, this is Dog.

It’s that time of year again – join us on Empire in Flames as we celebrate Boonta Eve! Mos Espa has had its fair share of tumult in recent times, but Mayor Mok Shaiz still seeks to preserve the Hutt Holiday and bring some stability to the people of the city. After receiving a call when you first log in, head on over to Mos Espa, Tatooine to participate in the festivities and complete daily quests to receive Boonta Coins that you can exchange for rewards. (article updated Dec 7, 2023)

Dates: Starts December 7th and runs through January 9th, 2024.

Speak to Mayor Mok Shaiz to learn of the different jobs and events you can take part in. You can earn one Boonta coin a day by selecting any of the three activities to complete, so pick a different one each day or return re-run your favorite. Once you amass enough coins, you can exchange them for limited-time event-only rewards!

The Taanab Harvest – Week 4

Content

  • The Taanab Harvest event has entered its final week!
    • Players who travel to the Taanab hex farms can speak with co-op president Bukrom in person, who will give players details.
    • The Taanab Harvest is a four-week event, with each week introducing a new phase with new missions, loot, and escalating danger.
    • Quest givers have a new set of missions for the final week as open war has begun between the Norulac Raiders and the Taanab Farmers Cooperative!
    • Kari Saarek is looking for volunteers to man the lines at the hex farms against Norulac Raider attacks.
    • Jaa Haruss needs brave operatives to rescue farmers taken for ransom by Norulac pirates.
    • Vinon Daivik needs assistance keeping the defenders of the hex farms alive.
    • Completing missions for a co-op leader will provide a single-time, unique prize, in addition to harvest coins. You can only earn one of these unique prizes per week. (I.e. if you earn Kari Saarek’s unique mission prize, you cannot earn Jaa Haruss or Vinon Daivik’s prize for this week!)
    • NOTE: Solia Maduel’s quests are disabled. Maybe next year.

How to Harvest – Week 3

The Taanab Harvest continues with a new series of events and activities for the third week. Thank you to Traycn for putting together this guide!

Hello, Empire in Flames players! Welcome to the third week of the Taanab Harvest. We’re on the back half of the event, and the activities will only increase in difficulty, but the rewards are about to stack up as we prepare the Taanab farmers for the imminent pirate invasion!

For Week 3, our quest givers have a brand new set of tasks for you to complete at the Arcon Multinode Hybrid Plantings POI on Taanab. You’ll need to seek out Kari, Jaa, And Vinon to begin these quests, earning you Harvest Coins that you can spend at the reward vendor. The first quest you complete on your chosen character will earn an exclusive reward! Like the previous weeks, you can only earn one of the three rewards on a particular character.

By completing Kari’s quest, you’ll earn a Carbon-Frozen Canister that contains the Creature Handler Massiff pet.

 

If you complete Jaa’s quest, you’ll gain the Taanab Wheat Tea, which increases your dodge chance by 50% for a short time and comes in a stack of 50.

 

Finally, completing Vinon’s quest rewards you with the Smuggler’s Lucky Dice for a guaranteed Armor Effectiveness slice.

 

Below is a breakdown of the three quests for you to check out! Feel free to read through them to see what tasks you’ll be working on this week as we prepare for the final stretch of the Taanab Harvest, and good luck out there!

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
