Browse Database Quest List
This mission is for a group. 2+ players recommended.

  1. Board the Imperial Transport Black Talon
    ( More …)
    Note:
    You can reach the entry to Black Talon instance by taking the North elevator on Vaiken Spacedock and going to Dromund Kaas Departures. This is where you can meet the Black Talon Valet and take the quest.
  2. Talk to Lieutenant Sylas
    ( More …)
  3. Talk to NR-02 in the Lounge
    ( More …)
  4. Talk to the Imperial Lieutenant
    ( More …)
  5. Talk to NR-02 on the Bridge
    ( More …)
    Note:
    You will have to make an important choice here. Sparing the Captain and being nice to him will prevent the crew from mutinying later on AND you will get a nice chest with a thank you reward later on. But, you will get light side points (bleh). This is also one of the first in game footage Bioware showed back in 2009 I believe. Kill the Captain / spare the Captain is the defining moment of Star Wars: The Old Republic!

Option :1 Branch A1: Chose to kill Captain Orzik

  1. Destroy the GXR-5 Sabotage Droid
    ( More…)
  2. Return to NR-02 on the Bridge
    ( More…)
  3. Option :1 Merge A: Return to NR-02
    1. Board the Brentaal Star in a Transport
      ( More…)
    2. Contact the Black Talon via Holoterminal
      ( More…)
      Note:
      "Guarding" the Holoterminal is Brentaal Star Security Chief. Dispose of him… Remember that all members of the group need to click on the Holoterminal to start the conversation.
    3. Get to the Engine Deck
      ( More…)
      Note:
      On your way to the Engine Deck you will come across your first "real" boss of the instance. His name is Commander Ghulil and he is a fairly straightforward fight. Make sure you STAY OUT OF THE FIRE that he produces with the help of the droids he summons. If you move out of the fire your healers will be able to save your tank and the fight is easy.
    4. Get to the Escape Pods
      ( More…)
      Note:
      You get a Bonus quest to Disable Munitions Power Consoles as you enter the Engine Deck’s first room. Disabling these will release a bonus Boss – GXR-7 Command Droid. He might switch his aggro from time to time. People have been known to hide out of sight behind crates and columns when they are focused by him. Depending on the build of the game this tactics sometimes works or not. Have your healers ready when he starts his focused firing abilities.
    5. Defeat Yadira Ban
      ( More…)
      Note:
      Padawan Yadira Ban is the last Boss in Black Talon. Her special ability (Cyclone Nova) is to "summon" all members of the group and slow them down. After several seconds she does a mighty AoE ability that will severely hurt your health pool, unless you move away from her. Start moving away from her as soon as she pulls you all to her. When I played Imperial Agent I loved to "Shiv" her just as she pulls me in.
    6. Talk to the General
