Anonymous provided this detailed procedure on how to ensure you get your DvL tier rewards on the same character:

1. Pick one character you want the rewards Make sure you this character is the first to reach 25 and 50.
2. There are 3 things you can not do on any DvL character until I say to from this point forward .Feel free to complete anything else though.
a. Eternal Championship
b. Run start or run any KoFE until I say so.
C. Buy the Datacron( Do not beat the 10th boss of Eternal Championship until I say to beat the Datacron)
3. Once the character you pick reaches 50 you need to make sure the next thing you do is DvL: Flashpoint Responder if you haven’t completed it. This will Complete Heroic Level and Legacy Level.
4. After making sure you have completed Shadow of Revan, Ziost and the stronghold quest on any DvL character. You can run KoFE and complete the first 9 chapters on the character you picked This character should be 65 now. This unlocks Valiant Level.
5. Complete all flashpoints on the characters side if you haven’t already.
6. Now you need to Level a character on the other side to finish up the flashpoints that are only on the opposite side completing DvL Flashpoint Expert.
7. As soon as Unlock: DvL Flashpoint Expert. Complete DvL act of Valor if you haven’t. Then you need to do Chapter 16 This will unlocked Champion Level.
8. Level the character on the other side to 65.
9. Once you have done that Hop back on the character you want the rewards on run Eternal Championship you can beat all 10 bosses if you havne’t bought the datacron. If you have bought the Datacron than run only the first 5.(You can do 9 but don’t be the 10th boss if you have bought the datacron)This will unlock Eternal Level
10. DO the rest of the event with who ever you want but DOn’t buy the datacron or beat the 10th boss until you have completed the whole event except DvL: Big Spender or DvL: Eternal Champion respectively.
11 Once everything else is completed buy the Datacron or beat the 10th boss on the character you picked for rewards. This will unlock legendary Level.

If you get passed step 6 before chapter 16 is You should be able to do chapter 16 right away as long as you if you beat boss 5 you leveled the character on the other side to 65 and haven’t bought the datacron or beat eternal championship boss 10 unless everything but Dark vs. Light Alliance commander is done.

3. Holofeed

  • BioWare is aware of the increased in-game spam, and requests that players report the spammers to assist in their timely eradication.
  • Patch 4.6a was deployed during regular maintenance on Tuesday to address a number of issues introduced in Game Update 4.6.
  • Eric Musco confirmed that while the 100K+ XP obtained from during the warzone introductory mission is not intended, it is okay to use it until it’s fixed sometime after the DvL event is completed.
  • The July Producer Livestream, later summarised by Eric Musco, discussed various topics, including a Q&A on the DvL event. Dulfy provides her usual extensive notes, and has a YouTube mirror of the livestream.
  • What EA Star Wars would be showing at their booth at Star Wars Celebration in London was apparently briefly unveiled early, and includes “Star Wars The Old Republic: KOTET”. “Knights of the Eternal Throne”, perhaps?
