You can as long as they are the same class or you are buying generic items,

You can just mail legacy gear to alts tho right?
I’m guessing that binds to legacy and bypasses the refund timer?

Yeah, like the others are saying, you don't really need to.

And I'm not sure about mailing items with a refund timer, Eastiano... I know that it would not let me put such an item in my Legacy Storage, saying it was bound. So I wonder if trying to mail the item would work the same way.

In either event, my only goal in doing this is to buy random pieces. I don't care what they are, set bonus, tactical, whatever. Just as long as it costs 3000 TFs and is refundable. That way, I can return to that character and redeem refunds when I'm ready to splurge.

[ you'll want to be careful to only refund one item at a time, or you may spill over your 5000 limit]

Yep, mailing them removes the timer and you can no longer refund them.

I don't know if anyone was using this same scheme with the specific set pieces and tacticals from the class vendors, but if so it looks like tomorrows patch is going to kill that...

"Set Bonus gear and Tactical items purchased from the Class vendors on the fleet can no longer be refunded".

I don't see anything in the patch notes about fixing any of the drop rates for gear that are total crap. But they are blocking a way to store up tech fragments?

You have a bit over 4 hours to repent your sins.



It's not new. This has been done multiple times before to stop players getting around token storage limits.

That sucks considering half the tacticals have poor write ups:

"Overwhelming Offense

Dealing damage increases all damage done for 2 seconds. Stacks up to 5 times."

I bought that and used it just to see how crappy it was before refunding it. Looks like now we'll be stuck with all crappy tacticals that failed to have a decent write-up.
