3) Spreading Infection Daily

You get this daily automatically when you reach stage2/stage 3 of the Rakghoul Plague and blow up, infecting other players. The daily asks you to infect 3 other players give you 1 Rakghoul DNA Canister and 1 green rep item.

The Rakghoul Plague has 3 stages

  • Stage 1 – lasts 10 minutes, you do not blow up when you die.
  • Stage 2 – lasts 10 minutes, you explode when you die, infecting others. What you can do is buy the VIP Lounge Wristband from the droid Cantina vendor in the middle of the fleet for 1 million and the use the elevator to get up top. When you reach stage 2, you can leap from up there down to the gathering crowd below and infect anyone not infected/vaccinated.
  • Stage 3 – you automatically blow up.

  • Pound: Proximity AoE attack, deals damage mostly to melee and tank.

The Midnight Rakghoul – Secret Boss in Kaon under Siege

This is a secret boss added recently with the Rakghoul event. He has a 100% chance to drop the Midnight Rakling pet on both storymode and hardmode Kaon under Siege

  • He has a similar plague effect to Shellshock the world boss in Alderaan so you will need vaccines or have relic from the reputation vendors. Also have an interruptable rock throw.
