Join the community on Empire in Flames for this year’s celebrations of Empire Day and Remembrance Day! While once a commemoration of the foundation of the Empire, Empire Day is now also a day for loyal Imperials to mourn the loss of their Emperor. For the former members of the Rebellion, what was originally a day to honor soldiers fallen in battle in Remembrance Day now also celebrates the New Republic’s founding. Whether you fight for the Empire or the New Republic, players can listen to speeches, tear down or put up propaganda posters, and race across Endor or they can group up and join the PvE and PvP battlegrounds. Completing objectives will award you Empire/Remembrance Day coins, which can be used to barter for rewards including new schematics, air-speeders, and decoration items that haven’t yet been seen on the server. Unlike other holiday events, Empire Day allows you to participate in as many events as you want, as many times as you want. This means you can grind out all the coins you might need in the course of a couple of days, or take your time and earn them over the course of the event.
This year, Empire/Remembrance Day starts on July 1st and will run the entire month of July. Head on over to Kuat City on Kuat (for Imperials) or Hanna City on Chandrila (for NR) to get started.
Once you land at your respectively-aligned city, talk to your Event Coordinator for a quick run-down about the holiday, and the types of events available to you. Each Coordinator also has a BB-unit that you can speak with to check your Empire Day or Remembrance Day Coin balance, as well as redeem your earned coins for the available rewards.
Speak with Ingri if you’re NR, or Wulf if you’re Imperial.
Amidst the decorations and troops gathered in celebration, a handful of other NPCs are scattered about that will have more information on quests or activities you can participate in.
A new world boss has been sighted around Theed. Approach with extreme caution
A new system is being rolled out that will allow players to display a hologram of a schematic. Only a handful of schematic currently have this option, but it will be continued to be rolled out to other schematics going forward
Journey to Tatooine and speak to Mayor Mok Shaiz to begin your Boonta adventures.
Perform one task a day to earn Boonta coins:
Race a skyhopper through Beggar’s Canyon in a time trial.
Fight Valarian Raiders intent on disrupting the holiday.
Escort slaves in to pledge their allegiance…or scout around for someone willing to help them escape
New loot has been added to the Boonta vendor and older items have been cycled out
The Mos Espa cantina is now under new management and has a new look (credit to Mina for the new deco!)
Added camo kits for Hoth, Taanab, and Kuat to Master Ranger.
Flamethrower and electrical gauntlets are now available for commandos and bounty hunters. These weapons will allow a player to equip a gauntlet in place of an armor bracer. When a flamethrower or LLC attack is called, it will first try to use the player’s held weapon. If the held weapon cannot execute the attack, it will instead use the gauntlet weapon for the attack.
Fixed holstering issue.
Fixed performance issue with isRotaryCannon check.
