Hey TUX,

I do entirely understand the sentiment behind the question. Unfortunately the answer is surprisingly not simple. Placing of decorations may work a bit differently than some might expect and as such we would like to show you. To your own point, we have to manage expectations and I would hate to have me explain it since that won't really do it justice. You need to see it

More information on that coming soon™!

First off, amazing, thank you for the information.

That said, one thing

My Sith characters would live, decorate and focus on architecture and designs completely different from my Agent and my Bounty Hunter. I know you said that the Strongholds are Legacy based, and I'm assuming that means that there's one Stronghold on each planet per account, as opposed to having Strongholds for each character.

I'm a bit saddened by this as this means I'll have to pick ONE character to focus on when it comes to Strongholds.

Would it be at all possible to add in an OPTION to allow us to buy more Strongholds per account? I want my characters to have their own homes, not share one.

Also note the timeline differences for factions e.g. Taris and Balmorra , different views out of said windows.

Cheers,

I hope not I wanna throw my whole legacy in one building (companions included) for a massive orgy!

I know it has been asked so I just want to confirm, Nightmare Dread Palace will still be coming in Game Update 2.8. Again, we will talk about what else is coming in Bruce's Roadmap. Just wanted to make sure everyone knew about that!

The things which from a consumer perspective appear simple, fluid, and obvious, are anything but behind the scenes. It ain't easy looking easy

Good on you to not answer a question via text that is entirely visual in nature anyway.

Some questions!

- Will we be able to decorate with friends, i.e. put a friend on "admin" of our stronghold and allow them to help us decorate?

- Will large groups of players be able to visit our strongholds so we can have player-run events in them?

- Will guild ships have a permissions system so multiple people in the guild can decorate?

- Can we own two strongholds of the same type, like two Dromund Kaas strongholds, or can we only own one of each?

Does placing Companion Characters as decorations mean I can mount C2-N2 on my wall and turn him into a singing fish?

Does this at all change the plans for there to be 2 expansions in 2014?

1) Any chance of us getting to name our Guild Ships?

2) Can we customize its appearance, inside and out?

I realize these are 'out of left field' questions, but better to ask than explode with curiosity.
