HK bonus chapter wasn't free to anyone, it cost 6 months of sub, in order. thats about $90.00 USD. it was also considered a limited prize and presented in a way that if you didnt sub, you would never get it, giving it priceless value at the time. You are just lucky bioware needs subs.

I'm one of the people who've always said that past rewards should be brought back at some point in the future, as population comes and goes, you eventually reach a point where no one or almost no one has those rewards.

Having said, I think it would have been really unfair if they had released the unlock for free, as in the past there was a cost associated with it.

Muh. I don't have it, and I'm short of about 400CC to get it. And not gonna get it .

Didn't care for that yellow Piss Hk, since I still remember fondly the original HK-47 and how unique he was

That aside, I think you guys didn't understand what the OP actually said.

They didn't say ''OH NO! I GOTTA PAY FOR THIS TOO? GIVE IT TO ME FOR FREE!!!'' .

Remember that not everyone live in this forums, and is up to date . (at least I'm gonna give them that benefit that they didn't know) .

I'm guessing here (and I rather guess then assume they are scum of the earth freeloader like the lot of you seem to assume) , that since if you sub and say for exemple you didn't own Shadow of Revan right? well you get it automaticcly if you do .

And since said chapter is a story and not some toys or armor..but an actual chapter. Shoved right there under KOTET ....so maybe they though it would unlock in a similar manner if they sub again.

They could've missed the whole debacle about it being a reward for sub only. Or maybe they missed that BW said they bring it back as a an Item you can buy from the CC Shop. Or maybe they could be pretending...

How I would know. But jumping down peoples throat like that...tsk .

They made it avaliable again and gave it a rather generous price (come on, it's cheaper than some sabers). Buying and playing it was the first thing I did after it was put on CM, before even starting the expansion.

I would pay for a legacy unlock so that I never have to do it again and just get HK without having to play the thing again on every alt.

HK isn't even a decent DPS/Tank/Healing companion. I personally missed out on Shae Visla and would gladly pay to get her as she is the top performing companion.

I fully support a la cart purchases of things we might've missed out on in the last 7+ years

Because we had to pay 6 months of subs to get it. What did you want, it handed to you?

My self-imposed embargo so as to avoid spoilers and incessant whines on the forums is over! Here's my take...

Current creature and droid companions cost 2,100 Cartel Coins on the Cartel Market.

I've been told the story for HK is pretty short, but hey it is content. I don't see 3,800 CCs for a new companion plus some new content as that bad a deal, particularly since some were saying it should not be available at all or cost upwards of U.S. $100. One person even suggested U.S. $150!

As for his efficacy -- who knows? I read that they were doing an overhaul of all companions to make them more equalized. Haven't tested yet since I'm too busy running through the story on my characters.

On topic: as alot of others have pointed out the price is pretty reflective of the same amount of free CCs given to subs in the correct amount of sub time that the players originally had to sub for. Convenient little compromise if you ask me.

Further Off topic: I don't even know if that's true anymore. Didn't they nerf all companions and "make them all the same" now? At least they had said they were going to in 6.0 if they haven't yet.
