The current resurgence will run until July 7th, enough time for players to fight off some infections and pick up some rewards in exchange for their dedicated ghoul-hunting. Nothing about the event appears to have changed, so if you already have everything you could dream of having from the reputation and the like, you may as well just shack up in your stronghold and wait the infection out. It’s just a little zombie plague; those things usually handle themselves anyway.
Star Wars: The Old Republic fans, we’ve got good news and bad news. The bad news is that another upswing in rakghoul activity is sweeping the galaxy, which means that everyone in said galaxy has to deal with a sudden influx of ravenous cannibal monsters. Of course, video games being what they are, this is also the good news because it means that the Rakghoul Resurgence is here again to offer players pets, mounts, vanity gear, and plenty of enemies to fight.
