I'm surprised at how cheap bioware is concerning cartel coins. The fact you have to pay for a new hairstyle (long male hair) is fine... But when you have to pay another round of coins to actually put the new hairstyle on is a joke... Does anyone agree?

Cosmetic changes are luxuries.

I do, and I railed about it, but they don't listen, it's a cash grab. If you have free coins that they give you saved up, use those to implement your make over, instead of forking over more cash. It's what I did. I felt paying for the options was enough.

I only thought it sucked that those items were class specific.

Wut? More like race specific.

I'm also not very thrilled about the fact that appearance changes cost CCs. But at least it's a relatively small amount for which your monthly complimentary coins should be more than enough. They were for me so far at least.

Sorry, that's what I meant, race specific, ty. I was looking forward to using those white eyes on my Cathar, I should have read the descriptions better. :/

Yeah it's silly that they actually charge sub cartel coins if they want to change their hairstyle...nickle and diming basically

Yeah, I also was looking forward to changing my Miraluka's hair after ages, only to find out that most of the unlocks apply to humans only of course. But the fault for not reading the description (or remembering the title of the unlock, which I purchased months before) correctly lies solely with stupid me in the end Oh well.

I do think any cosmetic change apart from racial change should cost in-game credits rather than Cartel Coins. Race change is fine if it costs Cartel Coins though, I think.
