Ah, I get what you're saying.

It wouldn't bother me personally, as it this is the sort of game that rewards having lots of alts. And it would theoretically encourage more time actually playing the game.

Of course, "kill 250 npcs" on a planet 25 levels below max is sort of silly and too easily exploitable. Anything that was changed from "once per legacy per week" to "once per character per week" should (in my opinion) be limited to activites actually relevant to the character level.

So? Where's the problem?

If I do a random group finder HM 55 flashpoint on toon X I'll get points, then if I do a random group finder HM 55 flashpoint on toon Y I'll get points. So where's the harm in killing 250 NPC's on toon X and getting points, then killing 250 NPC's on toon Y and getting points? Or killing 25 guard turrets on toon X and getting points, then killing 25 guard turrets on toon Y and getting points. You're putting in the work either way, and not abusing the system. People with more alts will always be able to get more conquest points overall than a person with only one toon.

After reading DawnAskham's post (see below), I now understand why some conquest objectives are counted legacy-wide. It is like this as a matter of dev convenience, not because it was intended. I am bringing this up in the hope that the devs can somehow correct this so that all conquest objectives are tied to individual toons, rather than having a couple tied to legacy. This is not just a matter of convenience, but a matter of necessity for those players who have toons in multiple guilds. Please address this, devs.

Unfortunately, the achievement system was designed to count random objectives at the legacy level, not at the character level, so conquest objectives being tracked through that system are completed by legacy.
