Try giving your child a ice cream, now "slap" their face & take the ice cream away, are they upset? Now eat the ice cream with them watching! Well done, you have mastered the art of Nerfing ©Blizzard/Trion/BW.

PS. And no, my main isn't a Sage or Sorc or BH. But the rest of the classes are next, long runs the fox in the world that has become FOTMMMORPGs.

So I have a question for you lore guys out there regarding the legacy system. In part of the trailer I saw characters being marked as another characters son or whatever. This is a legacy and your characters share a last name so it is supposed to be some sort of family right? How does that work with all these different species?

I agree. I made a cyborg for my level 50. I'm never making another cyborg again. So unlocking the additional cyborg features is completely useless to me. This will be beneficial if they do end up putting a barbershop type service in the game that allows me to change the look of my character and includes all cyborg options. If they don't do that, having my cyborg at 50 means squat.

These feats require boss kills and more to unlock special speeder skins/colors.


So i take it pure pvpers are screwed on this?
Pvp will have its own awards.

If you earned your legacy levels by playing lots of lower level toons, say all in the 20-30 range, you can get the legacy levels without having the credits. And since legacy is supposed to encourage you to play alts and not just run a toon to max and grind dailies all day I think it's a little to contrary of that vision to have the credit requirement too.
You're not likely to have any significant legacy levels if you just play characters in the 20 to 30 range. You only unlock legacy levels once you finish chapter 1 ( ~ level 30) with a character in the first place.

And let me make this clear, since there's some confusion about it:

The system allows you to unlock things EITHER via achieving the unlock condition (e.g. reaching chapter 2 in a specific class, reaching a specific PvP rank, etc) OR by paying credits. It is not both.

The credit option exists so players can enjoy content that they know they would never unlock in regular play (e.g. 'I'd love a pureblood Smuggler, but no way I'll level a Sith Warrior just for that').

Some things (like legacy class abilities) cannot be purchased with credits while other things can only be purchased (not unlocked) but are gated by legacy level (e.g. the GTN for your ship requires you to have a high legacy level before you can purchase it).

Same way non-PvPers are if they wanted PvP armor styles or other rewards.

Did anyone consider that imperial/republic zabraks look at least now, significantly different, maybe the idea is the ba able to hide your afiliation and play a dark side zabrak as a jedi?

What would you reward solo players for? Completing regular content? Standing around in Fleet?
