Legacy gain on PvP

Can some of the Devs care to explain to me/pvpers why we arent able to win legacy on WZ's??
Are we inferior on something in comparison with PvE?
So let me get these straight.

- A PvP player will be in disadvantage reguarding PvErs on the count of companions. If we dnt make our class story line we wnt get them period. So a pvper needs to make PvE either he likes it or not, if he wants to craft or make money by crafting.
- Certain items on the char perks need legacy levels but since we are only pvping and we dnt like to do nothing else, we wnt be able to grab those perks cause we arent winning any legacy, GG.

I would really like to know why pvpers are constantly being forced to play the game the way they dnt want to.

PS: Dnt take me wrong, i have nothing vs PvErs, i myself was a hardcore raider for 18 months on SWTOR and 7 years on WoW but im really tired of Devs telling peeps the line on how u have to play. If a pvper wants to pvp, than dnt put them on disadvantage to others or force to make PvE to have the same perks and obvious, vice-versa.

I'm not understanding what you are saying.. you mean the buffs?

Class quests on alts are barely that much effort and i do majority of the lvling on those with pvp so..

I'm mainly a pvper and been legacy lvl 50 for like.. ages now so idk.

If you've been raiding for 18 months, trash kills = legacy XP, and there's alot of trash in EV and KP to clear (all level 50 so you wouldn't suffer from diminished XP). So I have no idea how you dipped out on all that legacy XP.. if you've been raiding.

And I got to legacy 50 mainly doing PVP and collecting legacy XP from every warzone at the end. Matter of fact, aside from Tython and Coruscant, I was so overleveled from PVP, that when doing my story and planet quests, I would get single digits for XP and 1 legacy XP, meaning the vast majority of my XP and legacy XP came from PVP and Codex entries (since you can't really outlevel those).

The buffs as well aye but what i was referring was about the number of companions. If you for example dnt give (pardon my language) "crap" reguarding PvE content and are in this game for the sole purpose of PvP u will be in disadvantage reguarding PvErs in number of companions thus making u in disadvantage in terms of crafting since u do have less companions for crafting obviously it will also give u less buffs towards your char.

If you only lvl via pvp you will end up overleveling the story quests to get the companion so much you can just go back and one shot every boss of class quest.

If this is too hard work for you.. then idk maybe u shouldnt get companions or legacy buffs associated from doing class quests..

Ure missing the point again m8y, PvP players SHOULD NOT be "forced" into going to make PvE iot be equal in terms of crafting or whatnot and obviously the same applies to PvE players but that wasnt never a problem so.. (PvE players being forced to make PvP)

I don't see the problem?
Its not as if they're making you do nightmare operations to get these buffs. Its not much effort to do class quests. This game was a story based mmo first and foremost they want you to experience that content to get the buffs/companions...

It has nothing to do reguarding a story MMO. I do love the class story line and all that and i do applaud BW as usual , thats what they allways were and thats what they will allways be reguarding their games.
However, no MMO should "force" players to make a direction style of play whatever it is reguardless on the effort putted in. Thats an old school philosophy and its rapidly being taken out from MMO's and truth be told it should never been like that from the beginning.
Players should not be in disadvantage to no one because they purely wanna make PvP or PvE. Buffs do affect PvP players in RWZ's and WZ's to a small extent and the number of companions do affect your number of missions u can send at a given time when crafting.
General buffs and crafting has nothing to do with PvP or PvE and it should never be affected/perfected if u only play PvP or PvE.

while what you say is true, it's also no big deal imo; all you need to do is run through the planets just before missions turn grey. takes between 20 and 40 minutes a planet, even faster if you're stealth

Like i said, that is beyond the point m8. We should not be "forced" to make PvE to be on equal terms.
