Does anyone know if Ryloth is shielded or not? I checked the Shielded Planets Lists, and they make no mention of it being shielded, but I wanted to be extra certain. Thanks for any help in this matter.
What makes you think the added cost of using hidden cities is an issue for a large faction like Tenloss? Frankly it's a common way of building a shield grid. Much better looking as well. Just looking at the map will tell you nothing unless if course it shows lava blocking possible shield grid. That's not the case here tho. If you really want to know ask Tenloss or go there yourself, anything else is a pure guessing game. Also, being a homeworld doesn't mean it is unshielded either.
You are completely correct Jay, but it's a well known fact you can access the floating rock gardens on Ryloth. If Tenloss have gone to all the trouble of putting a shield grid in to block access to a galactic wonder AND made it impossible to see.. well they would be total jerks.

The Floating Rock Gardens were made to be accessible, however I would be wary if you are on Tenloss' list of "People better off in a freezer" as Tenloss has made it clear on several occasions that it will not tolerate certain people. I know many people have tried to get Ryloth and other planets over the years, even at great benefit to Tenloss but Tenloss keeps a firm hold on those planets, providing a level of stability rarely seen in this game.
