I think the OP was asking a legit question and many answers here do not seem based on the question asked. I reviewed the video that BW posted on upcoming changes (and I'm guessing that this is where the question arose for the OP) and this same question came to mind.

The video shows that Alts will be part of a family tree in the legacy...and how you branch this tree, will give additional COMBAT abilities to your characters, that would, otherwise, not be available to their class. Now, if BW didn't mean that, they need to clarify it more. Because, if Legacy is going to do that, it will really make PvP interesting.

We believe that our Legacy System design strikes a great balance between players that like to play multiple characters and players that rather focus on one main character in endgame.

We know you're anxious to hear more, and don't worry, we'll talk about it in the future before patch 1.2 goes live.

Yes... Talk Talk Talk... That is all we hear! This coming from a system that should have been setup from the start. It is ridiculous that we are gaining level in a system that hasn't even been implemented or explained.

Much like guild banks.. Should have been in from the beginning!

Thank you, i hope you implement a system that rewards skill points for legacy to furthur shake things up with multi-spec'd classes.

why is it ridiculous. At least we get to level it now rather than later. Why is it so bad that they want to make sure the system is right before they implement it?

I cant see how this is really affecting anyones gameplay at this point. Seems like some of you are impatient and WANT EVERYTHING NAOW!!!!!

chill out.

I didnt use the legacy options and I wont do it as far we dont get any more detailed infos...I just played without this.

You still accumulate legacy points without a name.

I just want to know if in the video the Miraluka Sith Warrior was created that way or changed the race after a few levels.
I really want to play a Trooper alt, and I want him to be Chiss (with Cyborg implants as customization option!)...
So, should I start leveling now or wait until the Legacy System is implemented fully, possibly waiting until March?

This is my biggest concern at the moment. I have a low level Inquisitor alt that I want to level SO bad but I'm discouraged because if Legacy presents new race / class combos, I may want to go that route. My issue is that I believe Inquisitor would be my main toon but I don't want to put that time into it if I'm just going to re-roll it a few months from now. It would be nice if we knew if we'd be allowed to switch our current race to one of our newly unlocked races or not. That would be a deciding factor in holding off or leveling this much wanted alt.

For now, I'm holding off on leveling him. But it's a little upsetting that the only thing I want to play right now is the very thing I'm not letting myself play due to lack of information.

Because, let's face it... A Miraluka Sorcerer is WAY TOO COOL!

You get quite a bit of legacy doing daily missions at 50. The killing xp is not good, but missions, etc is nice legacy. I do play alts but the bulk legacy I get is mainly doing my 50 dailies

I hope legacy will be made availible cross server, i probably reroll a republic toon but at a high population server cause imperial is allready to empty for my taste at my current server (Sith'ari, is a medium populated server). You shouldn't be punished for chosing the wrong server early on (mine even had waiting ques at launch, case of bad luck)
