For anyone who's been hiding under a plague-infected rock somewhere this past week, your final notice is served: Tatooine has been devastated by the Rakghoul virus, and you only have until Tuesday morning (4/22/12) at server reset to get in on the action. If you're really out of the loop, have a look at our complete guide to this first-ever SWTOR World Event here: Rakghoul Pandemic Guide. It seems that while the contagion somehow managed to hitch a ride offworld from Taris and wreak havoc throughout both Republic and Imperial outposts, inroads have been made into pushing back its advance:
Quote from Joveth GonzalezAttention citizens:
We are happy to announce that we are starting to make progress in the neutralization of the Rakghoul Plague Outbreak. It is our hope that the outbreak will be completely contained by April 24th at 2AM CDT (12AM PDT/3AM EDT/8AM BST/9AM CEST/5PM AEST). Citizens have until this time to completely avoid Tatooine and to not engage in investigations of suspicious wreckage on its surface.
There are now fewer than 48hrs left to secure your very own and very limited-time Black-Green color crystals, Rakling ghoul pets, infected companion customizations, "Containment Officer" title and Containment Officer social gear set. Happy eradication.
