Q1: What is the Bestine Elections I keep hearing about?
A1: The Officer of Defense, Victor Visalis [-1132 -3585], and the Director of Commerce, Sean Trenwell [-1199, -3584], are vying for the same position which works closely and exclusively with the governor of Bestine. Both can be found in the BestineCapitalBuilding. Depending on which politician wins the vote and becomes the new role in aiding the governor, the city of Bestine will change. To vote for the aids you must find evidence about why you believe they should be in office (or which reward you want if RP’ing is not your thing). Each Political Cycle last ~24 days, with 7 days to vote.
Q2: How do I vote?
A2:You can only vote for one candidate per election. Talk to either Sean or Victors and tell them you want to ‘Join Your Campaign’ and receive a campaign disk, talk to the secretary to get clues on who may have evidence. Evidence from npcs are always requested in ‘written form’ and evidence from terminals are ‘data discs’. Once you have the evidence return to the Capital building and converse with Governor Tour Aryon [-1137, -3563], please note you must converse with her, you cannot drag the evidence on her she will refuse it. Select ‘I have evidence’ and accept if you wish to log your vote for your candidate. Hold onto the campaign disc and check back every once and a while to see when the election cycle is over.
Victor Visalis - Evidence Locations:
Business Terminal in Victor’s office [-1136 -3584]
Ileh Adag (Slums) [-1357 -1871]
Izosxisli (By Hospital) [-1294 -3500]
Sean Trenwell - Evidence Locations:
The Curator (Bestine Museum) [-1079 -3632]
Orqiti (Market Place) [-1104 -3705]
Edaekomeu Ossilei (Residence across from Museum) [-1078 -3630]
Note: You only need one piece of evidence to vote, multiple locations for convenience purpose only.
Note: By default Tour will see Victor’s evidence first, so if you want to vote for Sean delete Victor’s evidence.
Q3: Where is my reward for voting!?!?
A3: You only receive your reward if your candidate wins and the reward is random between two items. Once the election cycle is over talk to the candidates and if your candidate won you can ask him to reward you for supporting him in the elections. The reward is random between two items for each candidate:
Victor: 1 Imperial Banner (Rare) or a "Loyalist" Necklace (Common)
Sean: Ornate Rug (Rare) or Decorative Statue (Common, also renamed item originally a Strange Statue.)
Q4: I am trying to vote but they keep asking me to do something for them besides find evidence so I can vote?
A4: Doing the quest for either Victor or Sean is not required to vote for them. They do offer side quests with rewards of their own, not to be confused with the voting rewards though.

Kill the "Tuskin Executioner" Only one spawns at server reset then it does not spawn again.

Q5: Anything else vaguely related to this?
Q5: Ummm I guess the Tuskin Raids. This system is an Event system spawned by the Live Event Team. Several Spawn points have been set up around the city. One is out side the Gate Nearest to the Memorial Flag and the other is in the back left of the Cantina near the Salon.
