In all fairness, Bioware did say, back in March at the guild summit, that the legacy stuff was going to be expensive.

I think it's funny how they promised nothing was going to take credits AND legacy. Yeah, legacy "unlocking" the ability to purchase something with credits isn't the same thing at all...

a) They never promised anything.

b) They said that if you didn't feel like grinding out all that legacy for stuff, you can also acquire them via credits. They never said you wouldn't need ANY legacy AT ALL for stuff.

If you can show me different, I will be happy to admit I am wrong. I am going by the guild summit.

I think it should only cost creds if your not at the right legacy level yet. But once you reach that lvl in legacy it should be free. Including race unlocks say legacy 10 opens humans 15 another race 20 another. Keep going that way. At least it wouldnt break you to unlock one and it wouldnt require leveling a charecter on a faction you dont want to play.

They constantly say how they wouldnt want to try and force players to play a certain faction. But they sure as hell dont mind doing everything they can to force you into altaholics rehab.

The last paragraph is so funny.

I'm quite ok with the Legacy Unlocks and how it works.

They are by no means "Essential" nor "Game-Breaking", just some nice perks you can buy if you so desire.

Besides, Credits are so damn easy to come by; Only people that have no interest whatsoever in making money ingame that are broke. Legacy, even tho' a bit harder, is also easy as pie. You even can raise both at the same time.

Is it boring? Yes it is, dailies are chores within MMORPGs. Don't want to do them? Fair enough, don't whine when you can't afford said "No-essential perks", tho'.
Keep it simple. It will help you get further. ~

It would be - so my Legacy level 38 actually did anything for me. You get everything with incredibly low legacy levels and have to pay insane amounts for it. Now, I do have the creds but ***? 500k for a dummy that you can also practise on on the fleet? 5 Mil for a GTN you can access on NS? 2 mil for a lousy rocket boost? It's like paying 500 dollars for a slice of pizza to not have to walk 5 more minutes to get it for 5, it's just bad design. Actual Legacy Level does nothing for anyone beyond 10 or so, it's all just huge credit sinks without any benefit at all, nothing of that stuff is wotrth even 1/10 of it's price.

Question regarding legacy levels.

I am currently at legacy level 11 and what worries me a little bit is that I have to level up alts over and over to get to 20 which is what I want so I can finally play a Jedi that actually looks like a jedi (with the level 20 legacy orange set).

My question to you guys are this;

As I said I am currently at legacy 11 and my main is level 42. I also have a 33, 26, 35 and 19 level characters at the same server. Is it possible that I can raise my legacy to 20 with my main only by doing dailies at 50 and such?

Would be grateful for answers

Yes; dailies are probably the most efficient way of grinding legacy if a bit dull. On my reroll server, I'm nearly at legacy 19 and i have 1 50, 45, and a 27. If I hadn't switched over, I would have hit the mid 40s on my old legacy by now just from running dailies and such on my 50s.

Yes you actualy get more legacy xps from a lvl 50 Also i would check on that legacy lvl 20 armor as you can get the exact same armor and even some better looking by around lvl 30. As a matter of fact the lvl 11 quest on coresaunt republics most wanted is actualy a descent modable robe takes about 15 mins to get also and no money . But will admit it dosnt have the metal on the back of the robe wont get that till around lvl 30 inside the taral v flashpoint.

But before i sunk that much of my creds id definatly check into it. Thats why i didnt buy it for my alt. If you want it then hey by all means get it. To each there own a d you may see something in it i didnt. But just saying might save ya some regrets later to see what some other armor options are before spending that kinda creds.
