Actually if they are in the character legacy part, then they have always been per character, just like the mailbox, repair and the command experience bonus.

What about tooltip that says about being available at 30 and 35 levels? Is it wrong?

They only ever said it would be a "Legacy Unlock", not a "per-character unlock in the legacy window" or the likes. They said the very same about the Legacy XP perk which actually is a legacy wide unlock.
The per-character unlocks have traditionally been shortcuts, the "funcitonality" of which was also obtainable by other means (especially for subscribers). With these two unlocks, there is no other way to get their "functionality" other than buying the perks per character. They should allow the use of these speeder speeds before you can purchase them from the trainer (like they state, they should be a shortcut purchasable at level 30 resp. 35 instead of say 65 and 70 at which you'd be able to acquire them from the trainer).

Personally, I think all per-character unlocks in the legacy window should be changed to legacy wide ones. It never made any sense to me that something in the legacy window that required legacy ranks, etc. didn't count for the whole legacy.

Another problem with these is that players without these perks can't really follow the players with the perks when adventuring together, which requires the player with the faster perk to stop and wait every couple of seconds instead of cruising at "autorun". This has always been extremely inconvenient and annoying, but at least recently with the crazy prices for speeder perks going away, players at the same level were able to get the same speeder perks no matter how rich they are. With this, the two-class speeder society is back and it's worse than it has ever been, since you are basically forced to purchase the speeder perks if you want to keep up with the other player and there is no way for the other player to slow down either. Perhaps a group buff could be added that buffs the entire group's speeder piloting level while in the group to the highest one any player in the group has unlocked at the moment.
On a side note, a higher speeder piloting rank can also be a big advantage in open world PVP.

I don't want this on every character, unless we can manually adjust mount speed. For instance, I am only unlocking this perk on characters that have a podracer... But others that use a bantha or whatever I don't need racing by at 88mph. That would just be silly.

So turn off "sprint" to slow down when you're on your bantha. Or if you want to go really slow, toggle "walk mode" on, and your bantha will trudge along like it's slogging through wet cement.

The actual problem here is some players, like yourself, making assumptions based on desire.

Speeder training has ALWAYS been a character specific unlock in Legacy. ALWAYS. And it has always allowed you to either unlock with credits or CCs... player choice.

What is different about speed 4 and 5 is they are not trainable from a trainer... only via a Legacy unlock.

This is affecting most forms of speeders. This bug is not affecting creature mounts however, so using those is a work around in the interim.

We are looking to get this fixed in our next patch, which based on the current schedule is 5.3. I will provide any additional updates as I get them.

When is 5.3 scheduled for? Are you seriously going to force us to wait that long to fix this new feature? Something like this needs to be hotfixed ASAP!

This is the exact quote from the patch notes :
•New mount speed Legacy Perks are available for purchase, Speeder Piloting 4 and Speeder Piloting 5. They increase mounted speed by 120% and 130% respectively.
Not really, to me legacy means it is on your legacy tab. Doesn't mean that it is account wide. I didn't read it like that. I read it this would be in the legacy tab, which is was under the character perks, just like the command experience perk. To me the speeder is not a big deal especially in light of the command experience perk. It would cost way more than just a increased speeder perk.

And what if the player that is in your group doesn't want the increase speeder perk, how would that even change your problem. I don't see this as a problem, people in my guild do not care if we need to wait for someone. We enjoy playing together and if we have to wait for someone we will.

Not sure how this is a problem. I don't have any problem waiting for someone to catch up if I need to. It's not something that annoys me or bothers me if they move slower. Can't force players to purchase something they don't wish to purchase. Even if it was legacy wide unlock if someone doesn't want to they shouldn't be punished for it by having someone get upset they have to wait for them.
