BioWare announced the SWTOR August Events Schedule. Right in the middle of the Summer the Nar Shaddaa Nightlife continues with full strength and no more bugs. The newest addition to the roster – the Swoop Bike event returned again for a week and later this month Dantooine will once again need your help against the Pirate Incustion. The Bounty Hunter Week returns as well!
All Worlds Ultimate Swoop Rally
The newest event that joined recently the roster of the recurring monthly events was back for yet another week. If you missed it, don’t worry, the Swoop Gangs will be back soon for more action, story and prizes!
Date: July 28 – August 4, 2020 (BEGINS AND ENDS AT 11:00AM PDT/6:00PM GMT)
Requirement: Levels 20+
In the growing shadow of war, swoop fans across the galaxy descend on Dantooine, Tatooine, and even Onderon for the sport’s biggest spectacle—The All Worlds Ultimate Swoop Rally! They’re packing the stands, eager to take their minds off their troubles and cheer their favorite swoop gangs. The bikers are here to take on dangerous challenge courses, show off their piloting skills, and flaunt their souped-up swoop bikes. The thunder of the engines, the deafening applause from the fans, the wind battering their helmets… there’s no bigger rush for these thrill seekers.
Despite their reputation as wild rebels whose makeshift courses disregard local districting restrictions, swoop gangs aren’t a serious threat to anyone–something all true swoop fans know! They just love adrenaline-pounding speed, sweet jumps, and big explosions, and the All Worlds Ultimate Swoop Rally combines all three in one crowd-pleasing package. The biggest gangs on the circuit — Horizon’s Razor, the Pit Screamers, and the Blatant Beks — are ready to show their fans a great time.

Bounty Contract Week
The previous appearance of the Bounty Contract Week was plagued by nasty bugs with the mission terminals. This is one of the oldest events and it is very likely that unless you are a new player from Steam or returning veteran, you have farmed everything you need or want. If not, let’s check out what is in store for you next week when the Bounties return!
Date: August 11 – August 18, 2020 (BEGINS AND ENDS AT 11:00AM PDT/6:00PM GMT)
Requirement: Level 15+
For a limited time, the Bounty Brokers Association has opened its doors to anyone willing to take on their dangerous contracts, offering an opportunity for both seasoned and rookie hunters to prove their skills and bring crime syndicates and violent gangs to justice!
Each day, you can sign up for one standard Henchman contract and one high profile Kingpin Contract, and each may take you to a separate planet. Complete five standard contracts to unlock Kingpin missions with bigger loot! Head to the fleet now, invite your friends and visit representatives of the Association to get started on your contracts!
- Reputation with the Bounty Brokers Association
- Bounty Tracker’s Armor Set and Contract Hunter’s Armor Set
- Assassin’s Bowcaster and Elite Tracker’s Bowcaster weapons
- Lobelot, Swamp Kell Drake, and Drink Server Probe Mini-pets
- BH-7X Custom Hunter Mount
- … and more!
Pirate Incursion on Dantooine
The Dantooine Pirate Incursion event is my personal favorite of the August events list. I have nothing more to farm from it, but the small daily area on Dantooine is very cool and the missions are interesting and somewhat different, but still simple and easy to do. The secrets that the planet holds and the special achievements you can hunt on Dantooine are a must-do for every SWTOR fan, I think!
Check out the SWTOR Dantooine Missions and Achievements Guide to be ready for the last week of August when the pirates will return!
Date: August 25 – September 1, 2020 (BEGINS AND ENDS AT 11:00AM PST/6:00PM GMT)
Requirement: Level 20+
The remote planet Dantooine has been thrust into the center of escalating hostilities between the Galactic Republic and the Sith Empire. Spurred on in secret by covert Imperial forces, the Nova Blade pirates have staged an all-out attack on the pastoral Republic world. As the Republic scrambles to defend this key territory at the edge of Imperial space, the Empire plans to capitalize on the chaos and deal a major blow to the longtime Republic bastion.
- Nova Blade and Dantooine Homesteader Armor Sets
- Ugnaught Companion
