Our ship is now named "Taris Rising" -- thank you to everyone for the fantastic name suggestions!

We ought to have a ceremonial ship launching party.  It could start at a stronghold where we have fireworks, music, and wonderful drink-serving droids, then move on board the flagship where we can fly around the galaxy at lightspeed.  While we can't break a bottle on the side, we can pass around cantina brews that give mission bonuses.

We are still in need of all types of Encryptions which can be obtained by participating in Conquests (solo or guild), teaming up to beat special bosses, and buying them in the GTN.  These can be used to expand the flagship and its bonuses.

If you would like Taris Rising parked over the planet you're currently questing on, send in-game mail to Kiralyn.  We can position the ship in a geosynchronous orbit above a specific location on the planet, so mention the quick travel point you're using the most.

I've parsed the favorites list down to these from various suggestions that I've received:

1) Taris Rising

2) Pride of Taris

3) Cerulean Star

4) Defiant Dawn

5) Beyond The Horizon

6) Liberator

7) Oathbound

8) Sunbringer


Assuming we're good with these, I'll go down the list until I find something that's not taken.


A few more encryptions and we're set!

The current conquest is underway at CZ-198.  There are only a couple of days left.

The next conquest is 10/4 to 10/11.  It's PVP heavy.

Conquerable Planets: Tatooine, Nar Shaddaa, Quesh, Makeb, The Black Hole
Tatooine: Warzones, Flashpoints, Operations, Starfighter
Nar Shaddaa: Warzones
Quesh: Warzones, War Supplies
Makeb: Warzones, War Supplies
The Black Hole: Warzones

I'm no good at PVP but even losing earns points.  I'm happy to group with anyone who wants to goof around with someone who has terrible gear but a good sense of humor.

Flagship Name

Our flagship needs a name and I'm looking for suggestions!

I was hoping to call it "Sword of Taris" or something related to our guild name, but that one was taken.  All flagship names on the server have to be unique.  I have a couple of other ideas, but I'm not in love with them and they might also be taken.  It would be helpful to have a long list of potential names so that hopefully one will be available.  Names shouldn't be too obviously from Star Trek, Babylon 5, Farscape, or other sci-fi franchises.  Please suggest some good names?

A few potential names:

  • Azure Dawn

  • Beyond The Horizon

  • Calatheas (blue jungle flower)

  • Cerulean Star

  • Distant Horizon

  • Felucian Orchid

  • Heroic Venture

  • Last Hope of Taris

  • Rising Sun of Taris

  • Shining Sword of Taris

  • Taris Rising

  • Viridian Star


Flagship Expansion

These are the things we need to expand the ship:

  • Dark Projects

  • Engineering Frameworks

  • Engineering Encryptions

We could use all kinds of frameworks and encryptions, but we'll expand faster if we stick to one type at a time.

Here is the guide to bosses that we could defeat together to get Frameworks:  http://dulfy.net/2014/08/12/swtor-conquest-commanders-locations-guide/

You can get Encryptions by completing the solo and/or guild conquests.  Check your Logs screen; Conquest is right after the Missions tab.  Participation involves doing Heroic missions, killing mobs, crafting, and doing other things that you already do.  Each conquest will send you to particular planets.


Flagship Decorating

Here are some pieces of furniture that we could use.  Most of them must be donated directly and cannot be Purchased For Guild.

  • Flag: Alliance: Standing (Gift with KotFE Expansion)

  • Computer Desk: Republic (FP – Boarding Party)

  • Generator Node (750 Warzone Commendations)

  • Large Field Generator (FP – Kaon Under Siege)

  • Power Transformer: Republic (FP – The Esseles)

  • Multi-state Mainframe Terminal (FP – Battle of Rishi, bonus boss)

  • Orbital Power Monitor (FP – Kuat Drive Yards)

  • Zakuulan Standing Floor Lamp (Star Fortress)

  • Zakuulan Chair (Star Fortress)

  • Gree Data Terminal (Gree Reputation Vendor, Legend status, 4 x Gray Helix Components)

  • Czerka Data Core (FP – Czerka Core Meltdown)

  • Mentor Processing Core (FP – Directive 7)

  • Any of the ship decorations that don't float over a little base (IE: Alliance Fighter, Republic Transport Shuttles)

  • Firebrand Tank (Operation – Explosive Conflict NiM)

  • Stormcaller Tank (Operation – Explosive Conflict SM/HM)

There's no huge urgency for decorations, so please only donate your extras.  If there is an item you would like to see on our flagship, please post and let me know.


Flagship Control

I have given everyone Silver keys.  I am going to try to set it up so that you can pilot the ship and activate orbital support.  Until I get it worked out, feel free to send me mail (as Kiralyn) and let me know on which planet orbital support would be most useful to you.

The Taris Wildlife Society now has its own Valor Class Republic Cruiser.

Feel free to use this as another way to travel around the galaxy cheaply.  At the moment, it is in geosynchronous orbit above the main Republic base on Section X.  We can not only pilot it to other worlds, we can choose which base we land at when we exit.  We can also activate Orbital Support features, which gives us damage, damage reduction, health, and other bonuses.

In order to upgrade and expand our cruiser, we can use several items:  Encryptions, Frameworks, and Dark Projects.  Frameworks are created out of 50 Encryptions of the same type.  Encryptions are rewarded for earning enough points during a Conquest.  Conquest Commanders reward one Encryption to everyone in the group and also drop Frameworks.  Dark Projects can be crafted.

The flagship is decorated using the guild's regular stronghold inventory.  If there are any decorations you would like to see aboard her, feel free to use the Purchase For Guild option in your stronghold decoration inventory.
