What's the point of Birthright armor?

Every time I can buy one I just end up having the token for it just set in my inventory, I never use it. Why? Because I'm always over the min required level by a LOT. So what's the point of said armor?

Birtright equipment isn't actually for you, it's for your next alt. It will be a serious upgrade for a lvl 30'ish char., and will be good for at least 3 or 4 levels.

You send the Inheritance kit to your alt with some money, and when they get to either Coruscant or Dromund Kaas they buy the gear/weapon.

Sadly I find that by the time I get there, I usually have some moddable armour, making the Inheritance/Birthright stuff a bit pointless, but if you have got moddable stuff, then it should be worthwhile for at least halfway into the next planet.
Peace can be found, above all passions. Through passion, I may gain strength.
Through strength, I may gain power. Through power, I may gain victory.
But for every enemy fallen, a new foe rises.
For every chain broken, new chains bind me. Only the Force can set me free.

If you have high level Cybertech and Artifice characters, the Inheritance and Birthright gear is really useless because you can gear your alts in orange with custom mods.

The Inheritance token you get for completing chapter 1 is for a level 14 weapon. Its stats are about on par with a level 17 blue quality moddable weapon (rating 50). So it is pretty good for a few levels. I guess most people burn through those levels in a couple hours though, so you don't miss that much if you don't use it.

Got more of this junk again today on Oricon. Do any 55's really need this garbage? Seriously Bio-ware. Revise this stuff or get rid of it. We can't even sell it. I'm not sure how anything could be any more useless.

My account is spammed with tokens for this sh...!

Birthright and inheritance. It's everywhere. Even in purple lockboxes and storage boxes with item roll 50 and higher. And it's totaly useless even for my lowlevel alts.

I don't need it, I don't want it!

BioWare stop this crap! Drop this useless crap on planets lower than level 30, but f... off with it on content higher than this!

It was the first bind to legacy gear in the game and was supposed to be for your alts when they hit a certain level. Though these have become absolete since there's tons of bind to legacy adaptive armour for lvl 10. And the conversion of planetbound planetary commendations to one type of commendations have made it easier to put armorings/mods/enhancements in these pieces of gear. So in other words, inheritance and birthright are a thing of eons past and still here to provide players with an extra look of gear.

and yet they couldn't keep all the other armors they removed from the game. WTH! (just ranting)
Peace is a lie, there is only passion. Through passion, I gain strength.
Through strength, I gain power. Through power, I gain victory.
Through victory, my chains are broken. The Force shall free me.
