Really Bioware? You have the balls to charge 2400 cc (20 dollars) for Life Day items we should have got for FREE, WITH an in-game event? I know the first round of CC shop items were a huge financial success, but now you're just being greedy!

I strongly urge the rest of you to boycott this nonsense.

Just make sure to make fun of anyone in game sporting the stuff. I know I would make it a badge of shame if I was there!

You can buy the things separate ya know. In fact that 2,400 is actually a reduced price considering what it actually is. So...be thankful for that.

Life day wasn't around until 1ABY there is no history on it in the Old Republic, the fact that its in, is basically adding non-canon equipment for your leisure, plus the amount of people qq'd about it like 6 months ago.

If they gave me these items for free, I would /destroy most of it, starting with the speeder (which is what drives up the price of the bundle). Seriously.... you are cramped about not getting these for free???
Judgments are often inaccurate because the brain relies on cognitive biases over hard evidence. Cognitive bias is the tendency to make irrational judgments in consistent patterns. Researchers have found that cognitive bias wreaks havoc by forcing people to make poor, irrational judgments.

Correction, I paid 60cc for the Orb, which I find fascinating for some reason.
I may break my rule about never buying coins and relying on the stipend for the Robe. But that's really about it.

Yep. The Orb is the only thing I find interesting and will purchase.

It is so heart warmingly EA :3

In WoW, you get n orc dressed as Santa who gives you a quest to acquire cookies and milk. Come Xmas eve, gifts underneath the xmas tree can be opened and contain varyingly fun goodies.

In TOR, you get to pay five dollah in RL cash for a holo pine three. I feel so loved<3

Oh it's great, you just pull it out an contemplate it between your hands like a snowglobe. The ONLY thing that would have made it better was if it's color matched your alignment, and maybe if you continued to hold it until interrupted.
