Credits - what do you use them on?

So far I've only earned credits from story and side quests plus the heroics I stumble upon playing through the class stories, so I haven't really ground towards any specific amounts as of yet.

But my credits have tended to go towards outfit compilation, dye and upgrades, so augmentation kit 10's and augments that I find within reasonable price ranges.

I also buy dye for some companions, depending on if I want to upgrade their look. On my smuggler I wanna save up so I can make Corso's hideous heavy armour that I found less green, lol.
The only companion of which I actually liked one of the awarded outfits so far has been Vette.

Nothing at the moment. They're just stacking up. There isn't much in the game I want at the moment.

So far, mostly armor, weapons and mounts that I like on the Galactic Trade Network. And some on character/legacy unlocks.

And I'll have to spend a lot more before I have everything I currently want. Mostly to expand my collections so I can make future characters to play with (for me, putting together a costume is an important part of the character creation process =).

^^this for me as well. Well, there are still some CM items I am after, but they are outrageously expensive. I just won't spend 70M on one item, for example. The amount wouldn't be a problem. I just don't like shovelling those credits into just one player's throat, just because the RNG god was with him.

Thus I'm piling up credits. I even stopped most of my crafting. I don't know what I should use the income for except for more crafting.
Bioware offers a friend referal system which gives referred players a couple of goodies (incl. 7 free days of sub and a neat free 10 x inventory slot for every character) and referring players some little shinies and cartel coins.
I would be happy if you choose my referral link to grab your free goodies.

This and dyes. Gotta coordinate ....I also am always re-rolling characters, so I generally send every new character 500,000 in start up funds.

Yep dyes too.
And that'd not be fun if the ones i like the most were not the most expensive colours

I really wish the CM dyes could be unlocked for the account once we have them, just like the outfits, weapons and mounts.

I like to collect things. A lot.Unfortunately. I make millions every day, and I spend them all like no ones business. I have every stronghold, and two of them are empty, in 0%, because I STILL don't have enough decorations. I can't just throw chairs in there, I decorate with Great Care! Armors...after you have bought all the cheaper ones, you move to ones that cost half a million, and after those to ones that cost a million, and after that...you get the picture. Mounts and pets I don't really collect, but buy now and then if they are cheap. I pretty much have all mounts I want.

For a minimalist, drifty person like me, my behaviour in SWTOR is a mystery for me.

Well, seems like all people here using credits for cosmetics, not gear upgrades.
Guess it is my problem not caring about cosmetics, mounts and strongholds....

Stat gear doesn't age well, not to mention the game provides stat gear for free - so if others are like me, they see little to no reason spending credits on something which is free, and which will become outdated in the future.

For me, I've bought most every unlock available through legacy, bought a bunch of character server slots (some with boosts), bought every possible preferred unlock for when I'm not subscribed, every stronghold fully unlocked, and a bunch of cosmetic stuff including appearance gear as well as decorations.

I do use credits for gear upgrades, but it's few and far between because I'm very casual. I mainly play for the story elements, but that might change now that I have almost completed them all.

I'm thinking of investing time into getting upgrades for my agent, just because she's the most fun to play with, so I might actually be able to save up money for the mods that I might want.
Or I might finally look into crafting, I haven't touched that at all.

The tallest amount of cash I had at any one time was with my consular where I basically poured all the credits from all my characters at that point onto her, I managed to reach something like 3.5 mil. I'd need at least 4.5 to get the best barrels on the GTN for my rifle and vibroknife for example.

I haven't decided if I wanted to stick with the game yet. I purchased the 2-month sub to try it past the f2p limitations, but I might just decide that I'm not into the gameplay alone enough, for me to enjoy getting into crafting or grinding.
