Hi
I would like to confirm once and for all, as I have read and heard conflicting things......

Is Darth Hexid Account Wide?

Or do i need to do the achievements on every server? (just in case at some point in future I decide to switch). I have currently completed 3 PVE missions on Satele Shan server (which was about as painful as having my wisdom teeth removed thanks to a crappy laptop)

Thankyou

yes, it is account wide.

can verify by going into legacy menu and seeing the achievement on other characters.

My confusion is that the achievement is NOT complete if you login on a another server. Legacy wide AND Account wide are two very different things, add to that there are some posts stating account wide and others that make no mention of it at all

It was said that it would be account-wide (and I cba to go dig up the quote, but I saw someone quote it here on the forums today, so it can't have dropped away that far), and all the reward companions so far have come with an item to summon them mailed to every character on your account, so I would assume that they will just continue to do what they've been doing in that regard.

When United Forces goes live, we will be offering new rewards for reconnecting with friends and guildmates in Star Wars: The Old Republic. Log in and play between November 8 – November 27, 2017 to get new rewards*:
  • Simply log in to play to get the new Mini Mogul NM-1 Mini-Pet, inspired by one of our classic Operation bosses, Karagga the Unyielding.
  • Earn the merciless Darth Hexid Companion when you complete three PvE or three PvP missions through Group Finder by the November 27th deadline!
  • Plus, unlock the new ‘United Forces Group Recon’ achievement when you complete three PvE Group Finder activities and get the new ‘United Forces Warzone Recon’ achievement when you complete three PvP matches through Group Finder!
  • Finally, once United Forces goes live, get double rewards: Double XP, Double Command XP, and much more through November 14!
  • NOTE: All achievements are unlocked in-game as earned. The Mini Mogul Mini-Pet and Darth Hexid Companion are delivered via in-game mail on November 28, 2017.

So, the key to getting Darth Hexid is to acquire the “United Forces Group Recon” or United Forces Warzone Recon” Achievements, as that is how we will track the “complete 3 PvE or PvP activities” component of the requirement. Then, we will distribute Darth Hexid (and the mini-pet) during maintenance on the 28th and it'll be available for all of your characters across your entire account (not just legacy-wide) when the servers come back online. Keep in mind, it's likely going to be a 12-hour maintenance that day.

Not HK-55. To get him you have to do the recruitment alert.

It is not account wide, it is legacy wide, this means that once you complete it on a server, all your characters on that server have the achievement completed.

If you go to another server, you have to complete it there as well to receive the companion.

That's not what the yellow text says. Is this Keith person wrong then? You'd think Bioware people would know. But then again...

correct, it's going to be mailed to us like most other promo items, once active all toons get it you don't have to activate it for each server when you turn codes in

Short version, yes it is.

Slightly longer version: A character that you are playing on needs to earn one of the two United Forces Achievements. Those Achievements are tracked Legacy-wide. If you have one of those two Legacy Achievements within the qualifying window, then on 11/28 you will be granted Darth Hexid onto your account, which will be delivered via in-game mail.
