So, not less than 100 million creds.

There are some yahoos out there that have over 100 million themselves, and some guilds with multiple people like this.

I see "Credit Sink" of epic proportions here. And it's needed, true. I wonder what this will do to the economy I fear nothing, but that my meager 8 million credits spread across my entire legacy will soon confer very different purchasing power than before.

See you in the warzones, muppets.

This is excellent news. Well done. I like the options

Next question...Chat...

After 2-1/2 years, General Chat on Fleet is where the vast majority of PuG groups search for players. This is good because we have an established and centralized location to search for players. Could you please encourage the Devs to allow us to still be a part of Fleet General Chat from our homes? If not, would the team consider adding a new default LFG channel that defaults to all players (old and new) chat tabs? Trade has one...LFG needs one. My only fear with Strongholds is that you'll be removing players from the PuG pool by stretching chat too thin in multiple locations vs. the centralized Fleet Chat we have now.

Agreed. I'm sure there are people like myself who can justify their toons living together.

*My Knight and Consular are cousins, so they can share the Coruscant house.
*My Trooper and BH are brothers, and good friends with my Smuggler, so they can share the Tatooine home.
*Even in my head-canon, my Agent lives on Nar Shaddaa, so he can have that place. My head-canon Kaliyo is in a relationship with Lieutenant Pierce, so I can see the Warrior crew moving in with the Agent for convenience.
*My Inquisitor will selfishly keep the DK house to himself.

I will make sure we get it noted in the roadmap!

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.
You could make your Sith's home on Drommund Kaas with your Agent on Nar Shadda and your BH on Tatooine, for example. Having your Sith live on DK and the other characters live elsewhere would probably fit with whatever RP you have for them. Technically the game will probably allow all of them to access all of the homes but there's no reason why you have to do so.

EDIT: Forgot to say thanks Bruce & especially Eric for the update and answering our questions. I wasn't that interested in the Strongholds update but now I'm really keen. Planetary conquest has me actually thinking about joining a guild for the first time since before the first round of server transfers!

When you say strive, do you mean strive through hours of grinding dailies or other boring content or strive in that it will be challenging/hard in difficulty.

Okay, on the "Strongholds are Legacy-based, not character-based" front...

Eric, you said we can buy/unlock multiple Strongholds. Does that mean, I can get one on every planet available, or could I, for instance, get 2 Sky Palaces?
