One of the initiatives that we wanted to take on in this Digital Expansion was to increase the kinds of mission activities to be found in-game. In particular, we felt that we wanted more exploration. The planets of Star Wars: The Old Republic are huge, expansive and beautiful, but we don’t have enough game systems that nudge players off the beaten path.
Macrobinoculars and Seeker Droid were designed to serve exactly this goal – at roughly level 52, players will be invited to go on a mission that will grant them Macrobinoculars and Seeker Droid technology, as well as unlock access to unique storylines and new daily missions, some of which send the player back to classic planets like Tatooine and Hoth. We think that players who fancy themselves explorers will find their playstyle rewarded if they choose to explore this gameplay path, as they discover ultra-rare items with their Seeker Droid and earn Reputation with a new organization link Galactic Solutions Industries on Nar Shaddaa .GamesItem.com
I first became eligible on my commando at level 53. Two astromech droids right near other on Carrick Station offered the missions to begin. I completed the introductory mission line on Coruscant for the macrobinoculars. It's not quite as straightforward as it might seem. I won't give it all away, but you'll need to stop and think, and be aware of your surroundings, to finish. It was frustrating when I seemed to be stuck, twice during the introductory quest line, but satisfying when I finished. I now have missions to go to Taris and Tatooine with the macrobinoculars. I'm looking forward to see how they unfold, keeping in mind what I learned during the initial quest line on Coruscant.
