You then start over as the new faction, and presto, no issues with quest flags, they've all been reset, and you're level 1, so haven't done anything yet. You have the added bonus of getting to keep your name. If your new faction weapons don't coincide, too bad, you're starting over, you'll have to acquire new stuff.
That's just ludicrous. I know you're poking fun at the OP, but this is just nonsense. Legacy bank will take care of all of that and you just create a new character.

Faction change would be fun, but I want to keep my class if I got to do it. It could be something available at end game, though it kind of makes future story content a bit more challenging.

Not sure what I did to tick you off. I've not called you a troll, I've not derailed any of your threads, and I've never attacked you personally on a topic. Wish I could say the same. and.... queue my tiny violin (beat you to it).

Hey folks,

This is a good question! We have been asked this a few times at some of our Cantina Tours as well but I wanted to make sure we had the answer here in the forums for folks to be able to find it.

I am remiss to ever say the word never, but I can say that it is very, very unlikely that we would ever implement any type of Faction change. As some others have alluded to in this thread, a very many things are tied into your characters Faction, and the choices they have made throughout their story. Due to that, having your faction change has a lot of impact on many things, not only from a story sense, but also technically involving your character.

Because of that, it is very unlikely we will ever implement Faction change.

No, you only post threads in the wrong forum.

Would doing it at max level with the understanding that all your 1-50ish stuff "happened" (so those flags don't need to be reset etc) change anything?

Or is it much more complicated than that?

Thanks Eric! I appreciate the response. I'm bummed, but not completely put out by it. I know it is likely a difficult and spendy feature to implement, and really isn't conducive to the SWTOR world. But thank you for stopping by and clearing that up for us!

I truly appreciate your reply Eric, thank you!!!

I'm guessing Eric was ok with it since he just stopped by to let me down easy
