I've gotten quite a few whispers from people saying they loved my kitty. A few people even said they hated Cathar, but they loved Major Meowpower. Everyone loves Major Meowpower!
He was worth every last one of the CC that I've been accumulating since launch. All his gear comes from the GTN, not an extra penny spent on him. He is now way better than the plain and ordinary Zabrak he used to be.
Honestly I probably never would have logged onto the commando again if I didn't do the species change, so imo the customization feature is most definitely "content".
Lovin the kitty thread! Keep the hairballs coming!
