Also, why have we heard NOTHING from Jesse Sky, or any other dev, that this is even still being considered in almost a year, if not over a year?

Given the silence that this is still even on the wall of crazy, and the statements that it will not happen, i would have to say that it seems highly unlikely that we will see legacy datacrons. Feel free to tell yourself I'm wrong if it makes you sleep better at night. Keep this in mind, though. In the time that you wait for legacy datarons to be implemented, you could actually find them on your characters and have those stat bonuses that you want so much. I doubt that you will do that since it requires a little effort and time, however.
What if they name datacrons as a legacy achievement? Is it all in the name for you?

Agree with the rest - it's a dead issue.

I'd love an update on this considering the recent interest from the community.

As much as I'd like it free... I would actually pay for this... I have 19 toons just on Harbinger and have done all the datacrons for 7... I just can't be bothered doing it for the rest...

I want to know why the Fleet Datacron never got a codex entry. I have so many characters I can't remember which one has it and which one doesn't. If there was a codex entry, I would know, now wouldn't I?

Well if the usual vocal bunch are bumping then I'll bump the "Please, do not make the datacron stat increases a legacy item that automatically applies to every single character a player already owns and every single character they decide to create in the future"
You are adding a dangerous precdent where by you would be adovating the idea that a player need only do something once, on any given character for the bonus/equipment to be applied to every single character present and future.

I feel confident it will never happen, but not confident enough not to post my opinion and my hope/wish on this subject. The complete lack of input from the devs makes me feel pretty safe that it will never happen.

The dangerous precendent set would be one where by people would only need to complete a task once, on a single character for all characters present and future to benfit from this.
So, why stop at datacrons - surely all codex achievements should be shared? Titles?
But again, they don't actively change stats. So why not equipment? Coms?
Maybe I should only have to PvP with a single character, earn the coms, buy the PvP gear and then that automatically grants a set to each of my characters too?
If I go do some ops and manage to get a high rated mainhand - why shouldn't each of my other characters get one too? Not just the ones that exist right now, any more that I create should also get this item?

I do not agree with making games too easy and I certainly don't agree with a system where people only need to achieve something once for it to be a benefit to all characters present and future.
That is the argument against this.

The argument for is still "I don't want to do the datacrons on every character - I can't be bothered". That is still the only argument people are putting forward as a reason for these to be added.
I cannot be bothered to get into ops groups continuously and somehow "win the roll" that gets me the mainhand weapon - doesn't mean I should be able to get one on every character as soon as I've done it once.

Some people think tedium in MMOs equals skill.

Some people think being able to put up with more tedium and time sinks makes them more elite.


I definitely support account wide datacron unlocks.
