For the sake of all involved, can you please clarify: Can casuals like myself purchase Treek directly from the Cartel Menu without worrying about my Legacy Level, or, will I have to get to Legacy 40 and then use my Cartel Coins to purchase her? There seems to be a great deal of confusion and animosity which will not go away until we get a straight answer.

Once she is available, can I just purchase Treek from the CM or do I need to level my Legacy first?

Thanks Eric! We appreciate the clarification.

Agreed. I am spending more time defending the fact that I spend hundreds of $$ in the CM and would like to purchase her outright without some Legacy requirement. This will solidify once and for all if I purchase her, or forget about her and stop shopping the CM. I don't have hundreds of hours to throw at the game, but I do have a dollar for every minute I can't spare

"There's a couple of ways you can get Treek. We're gonna put her in the legacy system, so you'll be able to obtain her if you meet certain legacy level requirements for in-game credits.
Or, if you want to jump in and play with her right away on any of your characters, you can purchase her for cartel coins".

I think it's pretty self-explanatory.

Eric,

Please leave the legacy 40 requirement to unlock this companion in place and allow the use of CC's as an alternate means of payment once the companion has been unlocked by reaching legacy 40.

This would be in keeping with the only other optional companion in the game Hk-51. It is possible to purchase him using CC's, but only AFTER he has been unlocked by completion of the quest chain at least once. It is not possible to use CC"s to bypass the requirement of completing the quest chain to unlock HK-51 and many feel that it should not be possible to use CC's to bypass the legacy 40 requirement to unlock the new companion.

Well, not really.
You can still get to legacy level 40 and get her for free (=not real money).

Why bother with the legacy level at all then? Why not make it either or?
I'll tell you what, then. Why don't you call me some time when you have no class?
