Alright folks, round 2! From what I can tell there were two big questions still on the table and here they are:

Can I place BoP items in my Legacy storage?
As of Game Update 2.9, you cannot place or "transfer" BoP items through your Legacy storage. I will say that this issue is something that we will continue to discuss internally and could potentially change in the future.

Can I access my crafting materials from Legacy storage?
Yes you can! The way it will work is that when you go to craft something, your materials will be pulled in this priority order: Inventory, Cargo, Legacy storage.

Thanks everyone!

Sweet another debate put to rest! I can live with no BoP legacy transfers since I know it hasn't been ruled out completely.

If I may Eric, can you check this thread of mine and tell us there or here if the Legacy Storage will be more akin to a Cargo Hold or Guild Bank?

As I mention there...

Which will be more similar to the Legacy Storage? Can you guys clarify at this point?

I'm just guessing, but since you can craft from a cargohold, but cannot craft from guild bank... probably more like cargohold. but official answer would be nice.

That's what I'm fearing, plus the fact it has the exact same number of slots that a cargo hold has. At the very least, the ability to both deposit and withdraw credits would be extremely advantageous.

In this case I do not see any use for the bank at all.
Totally useless feature like the rest of the Patch.

Guess I'll keep my Longshots for now, then. I bought a few of them on my Imperial characters when it was announced that the Tionese/Columi/Rakata vendors were going away once 2.0 and Rise of the Hutt Cartel dropped.

You know, it wouldn't be a bad idea for those old vendors to make an appearance again...maybe for Classic commendations...maybe put them in the Cartel Bazaar...just something to think about.

Bound to Legacy ≠ Bound on Pickup

Truth be told, it's not their fault that people have an issue distinguishing between the two.

I wouldn't say the entire patch is totally useless, but the lack of Fleet chat in houses coupled with this news is making housing less useful than I'd like it to be.

So here are my main points on this problem ;

- I only craft Stims/Grenades for myself. Nothing else.

- I already use legacy gear to transfer mods. So the excuse of being able to bypass endgame on alts is pointless.

So it's pretty obvious that legacy storage is made for crafters/traders.
