With no individual class story's in RotHC does this make the XP bonus for "Class Mission" useless or does the Makeb story quests count?

By Class Mission bonus' I mean both the Cartel XP Bonus Buffs and the Legacy XP improvements.

It would be nice to have this answered before pre-launch next week.

I'm going to have to go with, no it does not apply to the Makeb storyline as its just another planetary storyline.

This seems pretty clear cut to me, its not a class mission, so no bonus.

As some have already alluded to in the thread, class mission bonus experience will have no effect on Makeb. Technically speaking, the missions you will be going through in Rise of the Hutt Cartel are planetary arcs, etc. and are not classified as class missions.

Thanks!

So in other words, don't buy these unlocks if you haven't already, since they've already told us there will never be more class missions. Especially not with Cartel Coins, they're not worth it.

Um, no.
Both of them are useful when leveling an alt that's going through its class story. Just because there are no individual class stories for 50-55, it doesn't mean the unlocks/boosts are not useful.

And it wouldn't have made a difference as to how useful they are even if there were individual class stories in Rothc. There would've been like what, 10 class quests? The unlocks/boosts would remain pretty much as useless/useful as they currently are considering the general boosts will always be better than the individual ones (class, flashpoint, space etc).

Chapter of the story, doesn't mean it need to be CLASS specific, even if i wished it was.

Lets hope all characters get different lines.
