In the early hours of March 12, the “Star Wars: The Old Republic” servers were brought down for four hours, for scheduled maintenance. When the servers went live, the second round of the game’s Gree Event came back with it.
This event, which launched for the first time in February upon the release of update 1.7, includes a set of PvP and Daily missions, along with an operation. Quests provide commendations and reputation trophies, which can be used to earn reputation with The Gree Enclave.
Meanwhile, a new faction showed up, the Contraband Resale Corporation, whose reputation trophies can only be earned through Cartel Packs. These Cartel Packs include 1 or 2 rare items (with a chance of super rare), a companion gift, crafting materials, an experience boost, and a trophy of varying rarity. The packs cost 160 or 320 Cartel Coins.
Some missions in the Gree Event were altered, to increase drop rates, and a full list of changes in update 1.7.2 can be found on the website, in the patch notes. If this pattern keeps up, it looks as though the Gree Event will be available for two weeks, to come back two weeks later.
