But I hope those Strongholds are for the whole Legacy, not specific characters. I play too many alts to take care of too many houses...
Well then I have good news! Strongholds are Legacy wide, not character specific

"Vehicles, Mounts, Pets, and Companion Characters can be placed as decorations in Strongholds"

Awesome! I just hope I can talk to my Companions in my strongholds. That would be a nice thing. Especially when I'm recording the Companion stories! (JUST MAKE SURE DYE MODS ON COMPANION ARMOR WORKS! :P)

Do only guilds who are in the #1 spot of planet conquering get the bonus, or do the second and third runners up also receive a lesser bonus? Also, do these bonuses affect other in-game qualities or are they just more of what guild bonuses already consist of (e.g. XP and Reputation bonus)?

Is Nightmare Dread Palace still slated to release on June 10th?

Any mention of 2.8 seemed to fall off the list of planned updates.

To bad we have to wait longer, but the extra features surely make it worth it.

A few small questions though,

Does this mean that people who are subscribed on both may 11th and july 15th get 8 additional rooms, or is it a maximum of 5? My guess is that those subscribed on may 11th get 5 whatever happens, and those who weren't, but are subscribed on july 15th get 3.
Do we get to see only the companions of your own character or is it possible to place companions there for your entire legacy to see?
Are the strongholds separated by faction, or could i walk in with my bounty hunter on my nar shaddaa stronghold and see my consular stuff(/companion?) there. Although the tatooine addition might answer that already, as the stronghold will probably be in your faction specific starting city.


I am looking very much forward to this expansion!

Thank you for the clarification, I had a feeling it was the 5 room only part but I wanted to ask and be shure. I am very excited by all this.

This is all awesome, but for fear of being labelled Oliver by proferring my bowl and saying "Please sir can I have some more"? Can I request that you include some smaller scale conquest objective events for SMALLER guilds.

As there are MANY smaller guilds out there that are that way by design and would still like to be able to do some events with our guilds like this but know that numerically there is just NO WAY we would ever be able to compete for planetary conquest control against the larger more populous guilds.

So how about including some smaller conquest events like Secure X objective or base.. that smaller guilds can do to gain lesser benefits. As this would still allow us to feel like were participating and benefitting to.

thanks
