When I logged into the game to try out the new event, I was pleasantly surprised to see a new mission available. It was a short conversation, no doubt giving us a teaser about the new flashpoint that’s supposed to come to the game later, but it was still nice to see a continuation to the story even if it was brief.
As for the new event, I found it very interesting. After conversing with the two Hutts throwing the feast, I tried out the new dailies where I cooked and served food. It took me a few seconds to figure out the droid server quest. In some ways it reminded me of a few Nancy Drew games I’ve played, except Nancy usually stood behind a diner counter or a bar to fill out orders. With the droid I had to move between tables to serve the customers in a timely manner and make sure to get the orders right. The other quest was slightly different where I had to walk around a kitchen preparing ingredients and using the correct appliances.
After I finished those quests I headed to Rishi to do a couple quests there and ended up spending some time waiting my turn to click on three pipes. I started out in the pvp instance, but the Republic players wouldn’t leave me alone so I ended up switching instances. I arrived at the first pipe just in time to see someone click on it and then run off, so I had to stand there and wait five minutes for it to respawn. When I arrived at the next one, I was horrified to see a long line and a bunch of players standing on top of each other to try clicking it first. I ended up grouping with a few Imperial players so we could try getting it before the Republic players. Thankfully, clicking on it once counts for everyone in the group, so I hung back and let the leader of the group try clicking on it first. I would definitely recommend that the devs make the spawn time shorter if they ever intend to have that mission available again.
Overall, I’d have to say I enjoyed this event, especially the cooking missions. The Feast of Prosperity is going to last three weeks, so that will give me plenty of time to try out all the new quests and hopefully buy some of the cool emotes and decorations at the events vendor.
