mm I did post minigames didnt I?

Anyways, the QoL I would like to see:

More UI customization:
-Resizing health/resource bar on player and target frames (just like the Ops frames)
-Option to show energy/heat regen breakpoints instead of the 20% breakpoints. Easier for newer players to understand when an ability brings them a regen breakpoint lower.
-Highlighting your debuffs on the target frame (really nice for DoT classes).
-Seperate class procs (buffs that reset CD/autocrit/buff certain abilities) from the 1h buffs, auras and HoTs. Perhaps highlight abilities when they recieve such a buff. (I know WoW did it too, but it makes it much easier for the eye)
-Being able to change the colortheme of the UI from blueish to red (to give an imperial feel) or the typical starwars orange. Perhaps even more custom colors.
-Able to drag companion abilities to rearrage them on the companion bar.
-Being able to hide the Cartel Market icon or the ability to add it to the microbar.
-Allow elements (actionbars) to hide and reapear on mouseover.
-Resizing the worldmap.
-Mouseover healing. (Played a healer in WoW for 4 years. I simply cannot get used to target healing after that.)
-Ability to hotkey the PvP and Group-finder panes.

Also, for companions:
-Make the usefulness of DPS and tanking companions more in line of the healer ones.

-Sort per unit price instead of total price.
-Allow easy-linking of item names into the searchbox.
-Selling of multiple stacks of the same item at once. For example 4x1 Derelict-Purple Color Crystal for 120k each.

-Reduce lvl requirement of Worldboss weeklies to the minimal recommended lvl of the zone the first world boss is in. For example, the first weekly is available at lvl 16, at which point you already are to leave Coruscant/Dormund Kaas. Same applies to the other weeklies as well.
-Armor color dyes.
-Sniper/gunslinger cover has a green lightpulse. Make it so the color uses the Sniper-rifle or MH pistol's color crystal. Have Scattershot use the color of your colorcrystal, instead of always being green. (EDIT: Actually make sure all abilities use the color cryatal where applicable, if there are any besides the Sniper/Slinger scattershot.)

Despite the list, I still love the game! Keep it going Bioware.

They would have to do something about the little dude that always gives you the planet quest line. They could move him to the surface outside the shuttle, but that would take redoing camera angles and stuff for the conversations.
A classic sig that should not be lost:
Stunned , pew pew hack slash , stunned , running backward circles, stunned cannot move, pew pew, break stun, 30 second snare, wha?!?!!? stunned, knockdown, ...less stun more pew pew and hacknslash please.

Thanks for all the feedback guys. I'll add a list of most of the big stuff to the OP and try to keep it updated. Would be great to get some dev feedback too! ::coy smile::

Hood toggle
Hoods on twi'leks, anyday now.
Shared storage between toons. Would make crafting easier.
More legacy gear.
Character transfers
Sitting chairs
Swoop racing
bring back more events to get the world busy. Ilum is a great example with the gree event. Tatoonie could use some love with the rakghoul event again.
and the Force beat generic Swords and Magic any day. 8/26/14 That was my old signature but after RotHC, I went back to superheroes and swords and magic. Now waiting on Dragon Age and a SWTOR story expac for my Bioware fix 7/30/15 Returned for KotFE. Finally, a story expac.

Maybe some sort of holocall droid? Speaking of, why do holocalls load almost instantly, yet going from the dock to the planets takes so much time?
All warfare is based on deception If his forces are united, separate them If you are far from the enemy, make him believe you are near A leader leads by example not by force

First, thank you for ready check. Has already been used and useful in the groups I've run with.

Some of these are repeats of others, but y'all had a lot of good ideas

camera lock - sooooo tired of resetting my camera
account (or legacy)-wide friend/ignore lists
buff/debuff customization (being able to more easily see your own, know what's cleansable, etc.)
gtn - search by unit price
gtn - sell multiple stacks
sitting in chairs
in-game barbershop (hair, makeup, tats, etc.)
character recustomization
server transfers
mod vendors - sort by stat
ability delay/not firing
hood toggle
legacy codex (addition to individual character one)
keybindings from character to character

Edited to add: in-game guild event calendar
aren't you a little short for a stormtrooper?

I'm having trouble caring about any of it now that I know our class stories are going to be abandoned. Maybe I'll feel better and give a crap next week.

(1) Sort by unit price on GTN

(2) Legacy bank
