Not sure what people are on about, but it is working.

Raced a guildy who had rank 5 and I had rank 3, i started early and he overtook me after a bit, it is working.

But unlocking it for 50+ chars is just not feasible. Make it a 10-15 mil legacy unlock or something.

Calling these "legacy perks" in the patch notes and advertising them as "legacy perks" is very misleading. Yes, they are on the legacy screen but aren't they in the character unlock portion of that screen. Having to pay and unlock these for every character is definitely not a "legacy perk".

This. They were stated as LEGACY perks not CHARACTER perks. There is zero reason to not put it under the global unlocks.

It seems as if the speed is working for people who had the Tier 1 - 3 unlocks purchased prior to the unlocking of Tier 4 and 5.

Fiasco Bioware. Doesn't someone test this crap before it's released to your customers? Also don't advertise something as a 'legacy' unlock when it's not. Good way to disappoint people even further.

I purchased it for my main character today for 1.8 million. I use "Activate Random Mount" instead of a specific speeder. It feels like the new, higher speed is in effect some times but not others. It might be based on the actual speeder or the planet/location or something else.

This should really have been a legacy-wide purchase to unlock 4 and 5 on the trainer.

You do know that they have made a number of clearly noticeable incremental performance improvements to the game engine over the years... yes? So this is not surprising, particularly as these new speeder ranks are actually diminishing returns.

What is surprising is that it took them 5 years to get around to this.

Yeah... I have not tried it yet, but it would not surprise me if some speeder types did not get the "memo" about going faster.

I know this reply won't be popular, but Character perks are part of legacy perks. I know there are 2 types, but they both fall under legacy.

That said, the game has needed credit sinks in a bad way. These are not necessities, but simple travel perks that save players time. We have lived since launch with a max 110% speed ... nobody's game experience will worsen by not acquiring the new perks on a character. If you want it, pay for it.

Don't get me wrong, I love saving credits and making credits, but I'd rather they keep making use of legacy perks as credit sinks so long as they keep adding new legacy perks or tiers to old ones. I am thankful for the opportunity to choose to use the new perks or not.

I personally do not care how it was advertised, the problem is that the gain is none or little, I'm seeing both reports.

Also, ranks 1-3 are meant to allow access earlier then it should be via trainer. Ranks 4 and 5 do not to the same thing, therefore, they shouldn't be the continuation of previous perks, but rather two new independent perks.

Cost is high for an individual perk, but at least is not as high as cargo and legacy storage.
