Thanks you. I just think the ability to work among your legacy members would add so much to the game, even if they're just AI controlled companions.

The idea is to be able to unlock one of your alt characters as a companion. Use my Marauder as a companion to my Sorc or Have my Powertech act as tank for my Op healer. They would be AI controlled of course and unless you had Legacy gear, you'd have to re-gear them as a companion, but think of the possibilities to truly bring together the Legacy.

This would be a Legacy perk after all that you purchased with Cartel Coins and you'd have to purchase a slot for each Legacy member you wanted to add as a companion. These companions wouldn't hang out on your ship, have affection or conversations like standard companions though since they have their own lives and are already part of your Legacy.

Also, think of how it could bring use back to the often maligned alignment system. Like for instance only a Jedi with full Dark Side points could be used as a companion on an Imperial character or fully Light Side Bounty Hunter working with your Trooper. Just an idea of course, but it opens the whole system to more possibilities.
Yes please. I would happily buy slots though I think subscribers should get a couple for free.

I don't think that's unfair, though being how many people only have just a few extra toons, I'm sure they wouldn't want to shoot themselves in the foot by limiting the possible purchasing numbers upfront.

Remember that as a suggestion to the Cartel Market, we're basically trying to "sell" the idea to them as a one that could be not only beneficial to the game but also be profitable while also being cost effective to develop.

Well, at least this idea isnt as window licking stupid as the "let my nasty and evil sith warrior have the empire loathing elara, jorgan, mx et cetera" companion tnreads. Alts at least wouldn't have established game backstories/ reasons for being the class & faction they are.

Good point. I've never been a fan of cross Legacy companion sharing as it didn't make much sense but Legacy alts themselves? It is doable.

Already liked the idea of using my alts as heroes (AI-controlled party members) in Guild Wars 1, support this!

Having my Imperial Agent be my sith warrior's companion? I love it! xD

Now there's another matter of a legacy member being able to fill 2 roles, so I think this should be based on whatever your advanced class is. For example, if the Legacy Alt used is AC'd as Jug, you could used them as either DPS or tank, or a Merc could be used as either heals or DPS.
