You just want the system to be more poorly designed than it actually is, and you're upset the designers did a halfway decent job on the initial framework for the system. (I reserve judgment on the implementation until I see it.)

FWIW, assuming SWTOR follows the same pattern as most other MMORPGs, a year from now, you will be able to log in with a brand new account and get 50 legacy levels and a pony. I mean, a space pony. With photon hooves, or something.
Proton hooves, you illiterate noob! Photons are with that other space game. Good lord, what is wrong with nerds and geeks these days?

What's wrong is that we're recycling a gag from Bloom County, which, thinking on it, stopped being printed before about half the people playing SWTOR were born. (Check Wikipedia.) Oh, gods, it went out of print 23 years ago. Almost a quarter-century. And I was already out of college and working full time as a programmer. (And, for that matter, was already churning out rants by the bucketload on CI$'s forums, and playing Kesmai.)

Now I'm even more depressed. Up the wrists, not across, that's how you do it.

So then use the other method, level a character of that race to 50.

We can't get the Rattataki shadow boxing across all characters? That's something I was looking forward to... The datapad is just lame, but shadowboxing I would love to have.

Or both.

From what I can tell, you DON'T want to be level 50 with a race to unlock it. Having to be level 50 with a race is what upsets you.

This is precisely what you DON'T HAVE TO DO.

Unless I am utterly and totally misreading what seems to be very, very, straightforward, you need to be legacy level 8 with ANY character of ANY race, and then, you can unlock ANY OTHER RACE YOU WANT by shelling out the appropriate credits.

Please note:LEGACY LEVEL. LEG-UH-SEE LEVEL. Not character level.

If you want to unlock races without reaching a legacy level in the legacy system, sucks to be you, I admit. The whole point of having the system is to reward people who level alts by giving them more options. The whole point of the credits system is to NOT force people to level races/classes they hate to get a legacy option they want.

This strikes me as an eminently sensible design, though of course we'll know for sure only when it's implemented. It might suck giant sweaty donkey balls, but we'll burn that bridge when we're on it.

The sole acknowledge exception, so far, is unlocking legacy class powers, and it seems logical to me that if you want Sith powers, you ought to actually have a Sith somewhere in your family/clan/gang/whatever.

At this point, I'm going to have to put on my best Fry face and start pondering if I'm being trolled. If so.... good on ya, mate. You got me.
For the love of god, relax man. You're going to kill yourself!

What I don't like is getting the appropriate legacy level only to unlock the ability to buy something. The alternative to that is leveling a character race to 50 first, which I'm not really looking forward to but will do since I have to; I'm not rich enough to buy anything. I don't want to level a BH/IA to 50 (for Chiss), but I have to since I don't have any money. Understand?

So yes, what I thought at first was correct. I thought I was wrong when you jumped at me earlier, but it seems we were both on the same page in the first place.

For your own good, try not to... well, try so hard.

If we're going to have all the emphasis on alts and legacy points, instead of "Bound" equipment, our items should be, 'Bound to Legacy' instead.

Then we can share items with our alts.

NPC Vendor for in a ship is just a repair droid???
Oh no.

In addition to his capable equipment repair functions, the repair astromech is an officially authorized reseller of exclusive new droid parts from the C2 droid corporations. These highly capable parts enable never before seen Crew Skill performance on any of the corporation's ship maintenance droids!

But wait, there is more.

He will also accept any kind of item for recycling!

I still have a doubt (sorry for being so ignorant ._.)

We all know that is not possible to create a Ruby Red Skinned Female Twi'lek on the Republic side (the "Lethan" version which is present on Empire side). Curious that it's possible to create Lethan Male Twi'lek on the Republic side tho. I don't understand why.

Whatever.

The question is:
I'm bringing a Red Lethan Sorcerer Twi'lek up to 50... When she will be 50, will I unlock the red Lethan skin for Twi'lek females on the Republic side aswell? (with the Sith tattoos aswell?)
