Just curious.

Specifically the Races. Will they be only unlockable via leveling one to 50 or will the race unlocks be available for credit purchase at launch of 1.2?

In general I'd like ot know what features will be unlockable via credits and which will be exclusively through level/content consumption (fininshing act 1, 2, etc).

I am under the impression that things are unlockable OR purchasable. They mentioned it was like this because not everyone rolls alts, and those players would still need a way to take part in the system.

So, for example, if you level a Chiss to 50, you unlock Chiss for all classes. But if you don't have a level 50 Chiss and want a Chiss Warrior, you'll need the appropriate legacy level and the right amount of credits to purchase the unlock.

The ability to just pay for items that are earned is horrible. this is just a ridiculous way to ruin this system. First you are giving the credit farmers an avenue to make heaps of cash. Secondly you make a high rank in legacy meaningless if you can just enjoy the perks from buying them.


So I think you should make all pvp gear and raid gear something you can pay for to get? Put that out and see how the population takes it.

they will still require w/e legacy lvl to buy them and a person only playing 1 character is going to take alot longer to gain legacy lvls.

buying a cosmetic feature and end game gear are 2 totaly different things.

edit: and technically you can already buy end game pvp and pve gear, go get the token from the raid/gear bag :P

You can buy entry level pvp gear in 1.2. You can already buy BOE rakata gear in 1.2

i'm already bored to *********** **** and back of dailies. can we not have to do boring **** every single *********** day to get **** in this game?

like i mean some *********** variety of **** to do so i don't feel like i'm doing the same two dimensional **** day in and day out wasting my *********** time as i semi afk mind numbingly grind credits and comms wether it's pvp or dailies or raids?


i seriously feel like swtor goes from the great story from 1-50 into basically playing aion suddenly at cap when the story is finished.
what's a few corpses if the credits are right?
