When does legacy unlock?

Or, more specifically, when does chapter 1 of my character arc end?

After you complete your class quests on Alderaan (around level 32), you'll get a set of quests (maybe 3-5, depends on class) in different locations, often on ships you travel to, and those will complete your chapter 1.

Usually, the very last part that finishes the chapter will be a meeting somewhere, then you'll be told to go to the Fleet. At that point, you will get your chapter 1 title, and the Legacy unlock.

The game's milestones are generally based on story progress, not level.
Chapter 1 is shortly after Alderaan, as they have said, but that allows for a wide range of levels.

Starting planet -> Faction capital -> Nar Shaddaa -> Tattooine -> Alderaan, with whatever other story-based running around might be involved in there.
That is the minimum that you will do to complete chapter 1.
Add in PvP, flashpoints, and any non-class missions that you choose to do and nothing stops you from being level 50 before you finish chapter 1.
Free stuff (for you and me)! My referral link.

Beta Squadron 157. The pixel lives on in our hearts.

It'll be Taris (Republic) or Balmorra (Empire) between Faction Capital and Nar Shadda, but generally, you'll be around level 32 when you finish Chapter 1 (all the Chapter 1 ending quests are marked as level 32 quests, so if you are more than a level or 2 below that, you will have serious trouble finishing them alone, although of course you may be over-levelled if you did all the bonus series and bonus quests: -- similarly the aftermath to chapter 2 assumes level 41: )

Legacy actually unlocks before Alderaan now. I forgot exactly when, but my 29 Sorc has had legacy unlocked for a while. I'm not sure if it unlocks earlier because I have a 50 toon on same server, but it definitely unlocks before Alderaan.

Once one character has completed chapter 1, the legacy unlocks for all characters, regardless of level.

However, to get the legacy in the first place, one character has to complete chapter 1, and that happens after all the class quests on Alderaan, and then some specialty quests.

The game's milestones are generally based on story progress, not level.
Yes, but you can't do the quests required unless you've achieved close to the level for each world (or have help), so most people need to be around 32 when they complete Alderaan. Yes, you could be level 50 before you complete chapter 1, but most people would not wait that long for their first character to complete its legacy.

Wish the website would be up-to-date. And sorry for the... no, not sorry for necroing: the website still claims that legacy unlocks when on character has finished the first chapter of the class story. But THAT IS WRONG!

I think, but can't find it, that it unlocks when one char gets to level 10. I do have two chars on The Harbinger, who both are barely above 10, and the legacy is unlocked.

Really, Bioware/EA/whoever, update your <censored>!
