I am very much in support of pushing the date back to get a lot more features. At work, we push dates back all the time when a product simply isn't 100% what we wanted.

Eric,

Can we get some input on buffs or bonuses strongholds will provide? Is it simply a sandboxy feature for fun (which is fine) or does it also provide some bonuses, etc? I am sorry if you covered this before. I think there was a post before that mentioned something about bonuses but I don't recall.

Either way, it is something I will definitely be enjoying.

Don't let logic get in the way of the game.

They said during the Boston event that decorations for guild ships might fall into the 2-15 million credit range. We've known for a while that personal strongholds will have a credit cost (as one option for acquisition).

It stands to reason there will be a cost of acquisition for the guild flagships, too.

You really made my suggestion box thread tremble with the complete features GS will have.
I, gentlemen, am ashamed for doubting you.

Keep up the good work, I don't mind waiting 2 more months if that's gonna make Conquest real once and for all.

Aren't homesteads different for factions though? Even though it's legacy I'm concerned about placing items like mounts and it being in different locations because of the difference in faction layout.

Basically, are there specific placement options for the faction specific locations?

Certainly the idea that there is a Stronghold on Dromund Kaas and one on Coruscant adds in some extra complication. We are still working through the details but we will talk a bit more about how the separate faction stuff will work across Legacy further down the line.

Will we be able to place our companions in a cage, or a torture chamber? I would totally place Quinn or Skadge in a prison cell, or in a box with a gundark.

Why do we have to pay for guild bank slots, or stronghold locations, or armor, or speeders, or... well, anything in this game? It's an optional bonus for guild who can afford it. You're buying a capital ship FFS, that's not cheap.

So if my subscription doesn't expire until after May 11th, will I get the rewards that include the Palace Stronghold with 5 extra rooms (my sub runs out on May 23)?

Also, will active subscribers during May and July get two Palace Strongholds (one with 5 extra rooms, one with 3), or will we only have one?

I figured that each character gets his own version of your legacy's stronghold. It wouldn't make too much sense to have Mako in my Jedi Knight's stronghold, or Quinn in my Sorcerer's.
