Hey folks,

Just to answer two questions I have seen in the thread...

Why the value difference between the pre-order Nar Shaddaa Sky Palace bonus and the early access cost of the Nar Shaddaa Sky Palace?

It is actually fairly simple. The base cost of the Nar Shaddaa Sky Palace is 250k Credits. The cost of the three additional rooms is what makes up the remaining 1.25 million that is a part of the pre-order bonus.

If I already killed a boss that has a Stronghold reward (such as Karagga) will I need to kill him again to get the reward?

Although this is a great question we are not quite ready to talk details on the various methods of item unlocks, etc. We will have a blog in the future that outlines more about how the system works and how it will affect previously cleared content.

Sooooooo excited for this! Can't wait 'til more details start popping. Hoping for ease of customization similar to that of my old City of Heroes base. Being able to craft stuff for the Stronghold sounds real nice, too. Wonder what kind of special materials it'll require. I may have to actually start running Ops for the first time ever in order to get what I need to make my new online home look just right.

Well done, BioWare. Well done.

Excellent! Thanks for the answers.

What about the question of whether or not strongholds will be shared with all characters in your legacy, or if they will have to be character specific? Is that something you can share yet?

Just cramming lotsa Rak smileys to get Eric's attention

Eric, can all my characters from the same legacy (and both factions) use Nar Shaddaa stronghold and contribute to it? Also, will alts (their models) appear standing in the stronghold when I'm logged on one of the characters?

I could care less about the Strongholds and cosmetics, but the Legacy Storage...Finally! That's something my toons need and can use.

I am curious if any unique housing items will be added to the Collectors Edition Vendor?
