Rakata stims BoP?

I'm sure there is some reason why rakata stims, adrenals and medpacs are BoP rather than Bind to Legacy, so instead of complaining I'm just going to ask what that reason is. Why can't I share such useful items with other members of my legacy?

If they were BoL, no biochem would ever sell another stim. It's very easy to have one Biochem alt crafting Rakata stims for everyone, and there aren't many fights where an Exotech stim makes a difference over a Rakata stim.
...I would like them to be BoL, but I know it's not going to happen because it would mess up the in-game economy.

It wasn't mentioned, but all Rakata medpacks and stims require a certain level of biochem just to use. Sadly all the exotech quality of medpacks and stims are much better than the Rakata equivalent. It should be no suprise that that exotech sells very well on the GTN. If we (biochems) can't sell medpacks and stims on the GTN, because they remove the skill requirement on reusable items -what will we sell? Biochem will go the way of crystal crafting- pointless. Since the cartell crystals are avalable.
Even though the exotech biochem items are vastly superior, the convienence of reusable items unbound to a prerequisite or skill would crash the market.

"much better"?
"vastly superior"??

Maybe I'm nitpicking here and the issue is admittedly subjective, but this strikes me as a bit of an overstatement. Rakata stims boost the primary stat by 112 points and a relevant secondary stat by 46 points. By comparison, exotech stims, the ones that are "much better" and "vastly superior" boost the same stats by 128 and 52 points respectively, an increase of less than fifteen percent. Noticeable perhaps, although to some even that would be debatable, but "vastly superior"?....

Sir do you bychance work for a major political party, or perhaps earn your living commentating professional sports of some kind? If so then this sort of hyperbole makes sense, otherwise it seems a bit of a stretch at best.
Don't make me get all green perpendicular up in this beeotch.
Yeah.
I said it.

The difference is substantial when you're in Columi or even Rakata. In full Dread Guard it barely matters unless you're doing 16 Man NiM (that's 2nd info because I haven't done more than a couple wipes on 16 man NiM EC).

I don't see how it would negatively affect the economy.. Most endame activities use so many consumables that not having an alt crafting that stuff is not really economical anyway. The worst thing they did was nerf adrenals in PvP...

I don't really see a market for consumables, especially endgame ones. Having Rakata as a BoL, especially since it is not as powerful as the exotech, and exotech schematic is not a drop anymore, would be ok.


Make it a legacy unlock? 1 Million per toon?
