Hi Holotable Heroes!
Here is all the new content you’ll find after today’s update, 8/22/18.

NEW CHARACTERS
This week we’re bringing a little bit of everything to the holotable with a new character, new ship, and another rework in the Bounty Hunter faction.

Aurra Sing is a master of stealth and assassination whose skills are well known throughout the galaxy. Cad Bane features a brand new contract and payout along with a reworked kit.
Bossk’s deadly ship, the Hound’s Tooth, is a sustainable front line taunting tank that introduces the new debuff, Breach.

For more info on these units, check out the kit reveals and strategy guides below:
EVENTS

On the Hunt II
Learn the abilities of Bossk’s personal ship, the Hound’s Tooth.
  • Event begins: August 23rd
  • Level requirements for event: 60+
  • Forced Ally: Hound’s Tooth

Clone Wars: Hunters II
Join forces with Aurra Sing to track down elusive bounties and earn shards.
  • Event begins: August 24th
  • Level requirements for event: 20+

Contraband Cargo
Keep on Smugglin'! With this release we're adding a new “resource event” (think Credit Heist & Droid Smuggling), called "Contraband Cargo". In this event you use Cargo Ships to try and sneak one over on the Empire and get your smuggled goods to their destination.
  • Event begins: August 23rd
  • Level requirements for event: 60+

The event has 4 mission tiers:
  • Easy is intended for players who have just unlocked the Ships feature and are around level 65. The recommended/required units are any Fleet Commander and 3 Cargo ships at level 65+, with crew at 65+ gear 7+. This tier primarily awards things meant to help players build a stronger fleet of Cargo Ships to do the more difficult tiers of the event. Note that due to how Ships fundamentally works, you will need 3 Cargo Ships to enter the event, but it meant to be easier, so that you do not need very powerful ships to complete.
  • Moderate is intended for players around level 75. The recommended/required units are any Fleet Commander and 3+ Cargo ships with crew at level 75+, gear 8+ and mods equipped.
  • Tough is intended for players at level 85 with multiple cargo ships and a powerful Fleet Commander. The recommended/required units are any Fleet Commander, 3+ Cargo Ships, and crew at g10+ with level 15 5-dot mods and all units at level 85.
  • Deadly is intended for players at level 85 with 5+ cargo ships and a powerful Fleet Commander. This tier awards Reinforcement Ability Materials as well as Ship Omega Materials. The recommended/required units are any Fleet Commander, 5+ Cargo Ships, and crew at g12+ with level 15 5-dot mods and all units at level 85.

All tiers in the events share Victory Counts. For an explanation of what a Victory Count is, follow this link

New Ship Class Tag: Cargo Ship
We have added the "Cargo Ship" ship class tag to the following ships:
  • Slave 1
  • Ghost
  • Phantom 2
  • Lando's Millennium Falcon
  • Millennium Falcon (EP7)

Even though many ships can technically be a "Cargo Ship" the intent of this tag is not to add it to all such ships, but rather ones which might reasonably be usable for illicit or scoundrel type purposes. We will evaluate on a case by case basis the ships which will be getting this tag with future ship releases.

Galactic Bounties 2
Bounties are Posted! We have created a new Galactic Bounties event! This event will feature 5 new Bounties to capture. This event will exist alongside the previously released Galactic Bounties event (now named Galactic Bounties 1 to help distinguish the two events). As before, assemble a squad of Bounty Hunters and track elusive targets across the galaxy to capture them (and earn their shards).
  • Event begins: August 24th
  • Level requirements for event: 75+

The bounties in Galactic Bounties 2 are:
  • Easy: Qi'ra
  • Moderate: Visas Marr, Amilyn Holdo
  • Tough: Ahsoka Tano (Fulcrum)
  • Deadly: Enfys Nest
As with the previous Galactic Bounties event, Galactic Bounties 2 is a rare event, but with two Bounty events your Bounty Hunter squad is now twice as useful. Good hunting!
