Looks nice but could have used a bit more information.

The carbonite 'decorations' were nice tho.

Also these places look massive.

Might be tired and reading too much into it, but did that just say something akin to 'this is the dual faction planet for strongholds' implying either it was recorded before Tatooine was added to the release or the homesteads may be in the faction cities.

Also kind of disheartened if the future of Strongholds and guildships seems to still appear as some huge structure from the outside but then if bought at the most basic level might be tiny on the inside. I get that as a subscriber for may 4th we get the basic +5 rooms, so the video is probably accurate to the scope of what we will get but when we own little one rooms of Coruscant and enter it through what appears are the doors of a mansion, or the basic guild ship is a large hall and transport deck, the only rooms in our Harbinger class destroyer, it risks a disconnect.

You are reading way too far into it. Don't sweat it.

What I want to know is so we get one for each character or one shared through the legacy?

Seems to me that they already answered that one...

Probably it was recorded, or the text was written, before Tatooine was announced.

More amusingly I swear he said "Nar Shaddaa, known as the smoker's moon..."

Not to the fullest. There's two possibilities here. Let's go over them.

Option 1: You unlock the Nar Shaddaa through your Legacy with credits or cartel coins. Now every character in my Legacy can open their own Stronghold on Nar Shaddaa that each character can customize as they see fit, with decorations that can be claimed (like collections) that are also unlocked Legacy wide. This way, my Bounty Hunter can make a bar/club out of it, yet my agent's stronghold can be totally different, more like a secret base.

Option two: You unlock the Nar Shaddaa through your Legacy with credits or cartel coins. You can then decorate it with items, trophies and furniture that you unlock Legacy wide. However, you can only do this ONCE. So each character from your Legacy will walk into the same Nar Shaddaa palace, as you, the player, decorated it, regardless of class. This holds true for every stronghold that you, the player, unlock. They're a shared instance that can be decorated once but will be accessible to all characters on your Legacy.

Option 1 is what I hope. Option 2 is what I dread.

I think you need to prepare yourself for disappointment then.

'Legacy wide, not character specific' seems pretty clear to me. If you can see ambiguity in those words I fear it is entirely the product of wishful thinking.

I know it makes sense to pace the rate at which you release promotional bits for the new expansion, especially now that it's been pushed out a bit, but I'm really curious about what the DK Stronghold is going to look like. That's the only one I really have no sense of. [/beingimpatient]
So can we dock our ships in it for safe keeping or will this palace replace our ships?
