why we dont discuss cool stuff for a change, like the removal of sprint ability?
thats right sprint is now base speed since lvl 1, and instead in lvl 14 or so you get a special ability, like the consular/ inquisitor have ( force speed) the BH wil be able to fly with his jetpack, i dont know about you but i like this alot. now pretty much every class will be usefull in huttball for instance, as every class get a special ability like that.
Why no one talks about this i wonder i think is a pretty big thing.
From the things i could see in 1.2 notes so far , swtor will be launched in 1.2 not as it is was back in december. My mean the 1.2 features should have been in the launch not 3 months after. But hey, at least they arrive :P
also i like to point out the buffs from your alts you get :P they give you the option to eventualy through the legacy system to unclock all the bufss from your alts to every toon you have. And it works in pvp too as far i understand. that is cool, YOu eevntualy with the click of one ability you will be buffed with all possible buffs, as well your party.
Probably because alot (like I) is not quite informed of everything in 1.2. Keep going, i find it very interesting. What does the smuggler get?

Well these abilities can be used in a PvP setting while either leveling or outlaws den, anywhere where PvP can happen other than Illum or WZs you will be able to use these abilities.

That's the risk you take, buddy! It's pretty much the Wild West out there anyway, but it's not like they can spam them in PVP is it? 20 minute cooldown? If a PVP fight lasts 20 minutes, then both parties are AFK.

Stop worrying so much! 3 seconds of force choke on a smuggler every 20 minutes is SO not a big deal.

Edit: I goofed with "20 seconds" lol. Fixed.

I just feel that some combination will be really OP. I just fear that since the balance is already REALLY FRAGILE on this game, putting such a big system in that require even more balance will be a total mess.

Like i said , i love the idea but that just scare me to death.
The Heroic Ability Legacy unlock doesn't allow you to pick any ability you like; that would indeed lead to some balancing nightmares.

There was very careful consideration over which abilities to allow as unlocks. With the limitations of the ability only being usable during your Heroic Moment (requiring an active Companion) and the cooldown on that, you shouldn't see too much 'Heroic Ability spam'. We see the unlock as a fun, limited ability that many players will enjoy. It wasn't designed to unbalance the game.

There's so many people freaking out over the legacy abilities without knowing what they and their limitations really are.

You are right, they will be very OP when you have that ability with your companion against a Non-player character since that will mainly be the only time you will be able to use it. Lucky for us, non-player characters do not make forum posts so we won't have to deal with all the qq they will have.

Yup, all good. I'm glad Bioware opted to implement this via Heroic Moment. Kudos.

Still, I could use it in PvP on a regular world map. But at that point, none of that is really game breaking since that sort of combat has no rewards, just bragging rights.
