Issues with Legacy set-up?

I've come back after a long hiatus, starting all over from the beginning with a new account since I can't remember any of the old account info.

I get to the point where I can set up my Legacy.

The dialog box is there, all flashy, and I enter the name I want for my Legacy and then click the "Create" button.

And nothing happens.

Every time I try to check on my Legacy, all I get is the "Start Your Legacy" dialog box and the listing of my achievements directly behind it.

Is this just me, or are other also having this issue?

Thanks.

Have you finished the complete starter planet quest chain of your class and reached the fleet yet? As far as I remember you can only create your legacy if you have completed your first class quest chain and got to your homeworld.

I was actually on the Fleet when trying to do it.

You can't have a space in the legacy name.

In English, a leading X on a word is pronounced like a Z. (zorDEVoro).

Are you at the right legacy level? I'm a little hazy on the details, but I think you have to be at legacy level 5 before you can set a name.

No, just have to finish the last class quest prior to leaving the starting planet.

Correct.

Anyway for the OP, if that happens it down to one of two things. 1. The name is taken or you are trying to use a invalid name. Such as mentioned by xordevoreaux in quote below.

Are you trying to use the same legacy name you had on your original account?


Which just leave me to say welcome back.

Contrary to how character names work, legacy names don't follow the same strict naming policy rules when it comes to duplicates.
Just two days ago I ran into another player's character with the exact same legacy name as mine. I then activated the option to show the legacy name on my character and it was funny to see his reaction.
