Alright folks, round 2! From what I can tell there were two big questions still on the table and here they are:
Can I place BoP items in my Legacy storage?
As of Game Update 2.9, you cannot place or "transfer" BoP items through your Legacy storage. I will say that this issue is something that we will continue to discuss internally and could potentially change in the future.
Can I access my crafting materials from Legacy storage?
Yes you can! The way it will work is that when you go to craft something, your materials will be pulled in this priority order: Inventory, Cargo, Legacy storage.
Sweet another debate put to rest!
I can live with no BoP legacy transfers since I know it hasn't been ruled out completely.
