May the Fourth Be With You
Fan-Favorite Space Gear is BACK
Login now as our out of this world Lore Wars gear and seasonal adventures return! Check out the all-new, rare Way of the J6 armor set in your game menu, plus find all our May 4th event items in the shop in the /zorbaspalace map.
Then return this Friday for the Fifth Lord Sepulchure boss fight, new farming rewards, new upgrade pack and... the DarkSide 2.0 Class (name TBD)!
DarkSide 2.0 Class?
Over the last couple of years, we've been bringing back previously rare class skills paired with new art so that ALL players can enjoy the gameplay. Previously, the DarkSide Class debuted in 2012*, as Vader Darkside's prize in Cysero's "Can I Has Mod" reward-giving extravaganza-of-craziness.
May the Fourth is the thematically PERFECT time for the class to return, and it will only be available by farming! The blue variant of the seasonal DarkSide 2.0 class will be available for ALL players to farm in this Friday's event. A diabolically-evil red armor set variant will be locked to higher-level heroes. No OG Darkside class required.**
Want to help choose the class's name? Vote in the poll on my Twitter account until Wednesday at 11:59 PM EST.
* OG Darkside Class owners, you'll keep your original, exclusive class just as-is, with the same art, battle pet, and skills as you've come to know and love. And if you check out the Darkside Orb's quest in /curio, you'll find a permanent, 0 AC version of the Hate Wolf battle pet has been added as a quest reward.
** Because this class is available via farming, and won't require end-game levels of time investment, we're making all of the new class art available for all players.
Zorba the WUT?!
On a planet far, far away... your quest to help Memet the Scruffy-Looking Nightmare Herder begins as we start our May event line-off with a BLAST(er). She owes intergalactic crime lord Zorba the Bakk, and if she's going to pay him back, she needs YOUR help. Find new bosses, rewards, and more this weekend!
Head to /zorbaspalace to begin your quests.
- Battle Palace Enforcers + Cactus Creepers
- Fight Thwompcats
- Take on Zorba the Bakk

May the 4th holiday... wait, what?
Well... it's not, really. Unless you're a particular breed of nerd. As the Intergalactic Space Wiki (run by wookies, of course) tells us:
"May 4 is considered a holiday by Star Wars fans to celebrate the franchise's films series, books, and culture as well as strict religious rituals. The date was chosen for the easy pun on the catchphrase "May the Force be with you" — "May the fourth be with you". Even though the holiday was not actually created or declared by Lucasfilm many Star Wars fans across the world choose to celebrate the holiday."
