    these guides are missing infos.
    you should say if other classes other than sith , i. e. BH, can get it too or not, and the coords for the starting point and coords for where to pick the quest

      I am sorry but I am not sure what you mean. There is a clear Starting At section at the beginning of the quest indicating which NPC you can get it from. There is a screenshot of the map where this NPC is located. Since in the KEY Facts it does not indicate that any other quest is a prerequisite or any particular class is a prerequisite I do not see the reason why BH would not be able to get this quest.

        I’m BH and I cannot communicate with Ephran Zell. Any BH or IA got this entry already?

      What is the trick to beating this quest solo?
