It looks like the Valarian quests are bugged roe me right now. I'm hoping a CSR can help me out in the near future. Here's what happened:
-- Went to the Lucky Despot in Mos Eisley and saw the revamped theme park with new NPCs.
-- Tried to get a quest, but was told I had to prove myself. I had pretty low Valarian faction at that point.
-- So, I killed a bunch of Jabba's guys and raised my Valarian faction to about +800
-- I talked to that quest-giver again (forget her name -- woman with blue skin and red eyes, like Thrawn), and...NOTHING. No conversation options at all. I think it has something to do with my weapon skill. I'm a novice carbineer, equipped with a carbine. If I switch weapons and then talk to her, she does respond, and says something like, "You're not powerful enough yet for the job I have." So, maybe I *am* powerful enough with the carbine, but the text is bugged?
I really hope they can fix it for me. I've heard the revised loot is pretty cool.
