Carbon Copy Skills Addition

Can we make it possible to buy the opposite class animations? Or to even make it where we can buy a package that changes the color of our skills to a certain extent?
What I'm saying is, is that as a person who has played Sith Juggernaut all the way up to 51 and who is now doing a Jedi Guardian, I'd like the Juggernaut skill animations and aesthetics much more than the guardian and for them to be able to be put on the Guardian. So why not make it possible to be able to buy the Sith Warrior skill animations/effects and put it on that Jedi Guardian.
There should also be the option to be able to change the color. The Sith Warrior animations are dominantly red in color, so it should be fairly easy to change the base color to blue or green. As a Jedi Guardian, I'd actually want to be able to force scream my enemies

The idea as a whole should be (or sounds to be) low budget, and shouldn't be time consuming at all. Simply make it where you take all of the skills and recolor them, or take the skills and turn it into an equippable package (for valid classes) in the Cartel Market

The same things can be fone for classes like the sith inquisitor, where we can be able to change the lightning to red or white if you wanted to.

This would also help make the aesthetics of classes who use firearms look better too. For instance, if you have a purple color crystal in the blaster rifle of an operative, the power shot skill still makes a red projectile. Being able to change the skill color according to the crystal color makes the game look that much better as a whole.

For me personally, I would actually pay money for this.

It also wouldn't hurt for Bioware to make skill packages, where they change the animations of the character. So there could be things such as the Marauder or Sentinel holding the lightsaber in different ways. Or the skills and aesthetics to look completely different, but are the same.

This has already been brought up a dozen times before. Not going to happen. You can scroll down to the previous threads if you want to futilely argue about it.

Is that "not going to happen" just like how Player Housing will never happen? Or just like how Guild Ships will never happen?

I don't think this is the sort of thing anyone expects will be rolled out tomorrow, but BW does implement things that the player-base are interested in (see also the dye system, PVP space content), especially when it can be monetized.

OP I linked/quoted this thread and your ideas for it in the Consolidated Ability Animation Customization Thread to add it to the list of interested players in this feature being added.
Given the choice whether to rule a corrupt and failing empire or to challenge the fates for another throw, a better throw, against one's destiny, what was a king to do?
But does one ever truly have a choice? One can only match, move by move, the machinations of fate, and thus defy the tyrannous stars.

Who said guild ships and player housing were never going to happen? Straw man argument there, not to mention the fact that adding customizable instances like that is not the same as changing the inherent uniqueness of the player classes.
