Good afternoon,

I'd like to post some QOL improvements or ideas for Onslaught.

1st - when we buy companion gifts from or any items from vendoors can an interface pop up and we can type the quantity we want and purchase them all at once? Having to hit the item we want they hit another button saying yes or no is a bit redundant and time consuming. The other option is just allow us to hit the item we want and we purchase it like like buying crafting materials from the vendor. I would prefer to have a pop up window with the crafting vendor so we can click an item, enter the amount and purchase it.

2nd - Is it possible to remove the spaceport when we are landing on a planet unless its a plot point? Can we just land directly on the surface of the planet and start questing? Once again will save time. For instance you allow us to travel to planets using the map, but the smuggler story in chapter one requires constant communication with risha after you arrive at the planet. SO you can't use that function. Can we just talk to her on the ground after we arrive?

Not sure if any of these changes are possible but they would save time and alllow us to play the game more.

Already there, at least on the vendor on the Fleet. Shift+Left Click on the item in the list.

The spaceport *is* on the surface of the planet, unless you mean the orbital station. People have been asking for a way to bypass the stations for a-a-a-a-ages, and no, no change.

"Possible" isn't interesting. The first is already in the game, and the second is likely to be possible but not feasible. ("Feasible" ==> "possible at a reasonable cost".)

A good workaround is to use the transport to the heroics terminal on each planet via the Solo tab of your activities window. That way you can bypass the space station entirely. If you abandon the quests, you can use the transports to jump around to each desired planet as you please, since there is no cooldown on those transports.

There is no cooldown on the QT *if you buy the global legacy perk*.

And that tip doesn't work for Quesh, since there are no heroics on Quesh.

You cannot use QT from your ship, fleet and other planets to bypass space stations, so I have no idea why you bring it up. And yes, Quesh and the starter planets cannot be bypassed by this workaround, it is still good for all the other class story planets.
