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!

Woop! Now I get to save extra space in my Stronghold by not placing a Legacy Bank!

Officially useless for anyone who doesn't craft, barely useful for those who do craft.

Wonderful.

barely? BARELY?

speak for yourself. ability to craft from legacy storage was the one feature I really wanted. I would have been ok with just consolidating mats in it, but the fact that I can craft directly from it? is fantastic.

and personally I'm also going to use it to consolidate odds and ends from cartel packs, as well as companion gifts. at the minimum. to me, legacy bank even as it stands right now is pretty much the only real reason to bother with a stronghold. decorating might hold me for a few hours, but legacy bank isd why I'd keep coming back

Absolutely freaking PERFECT. Legacy Storage is turning out exactly as I wanted, just lucky I guess.
Thanks, BioWare.

I know there's major concerns with BoP items being allowed in Legacy Storage (Lost monetization, drastically reduced gear grind time, etc). But you do realize that Legacy Storage won't solve the MAJOR storage problem that many of us are facing.

The problem is that I have nearly 5 Cargo bays full of bound items, most of which can't be reacquired or have a very steep repurchase cost or a require a large amount of effort/time to reacquire. Also your Collections/Cartel Market system essentially forces you to hold on to any gear you've equipped, but not unlocked the whole set for in Collections.

So, two questions/Suggestions:
1. If you're not going to allow BoP items in Legacy Storage could you please increase the number of regular Cargo Bays then?

2. If I have more than 50% of a Collection, could you add moderately expensive option to just unlock the rest of the set? I.E. If I have the Revan's Mask, Chest Plate , and Robes I could pay something like 1,000cc to unlock the other two items in the set.

The only upside to Legacy Storage right now is that it reduces the need for alt storage of crafting materials, boosts, companion gifts, etc. Which is a very welcome addition, but not everything I hoped for.

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.
They've already said in the latest stream that they are STILL considering it.

What space??? For anyone thats not a crafter/trader the legacy storage is practically useless.

Yes, Barely.
I have an armstech, Cybertech, and Artifice.

I don't see the point in putting them in the same hold at all, now I have to go to and out of my stronghold instead Of sitting on fleet.

If you're worried about BoP transfers in the Legacy bank messing up the Cartel Market issue, just tag cartel stuff as only transferable through Legacy Bank if its been Legacy unlocked.

They've already stated they're considering having the Fleet Chat available in Strongholds.
