I have been looking for information on this part of legacy since it was announced. Is it possible to buy the unlock to the buffs or is this one of the required play to unlock?

Found my answer, cannot buy them...sad panda.

Is it also bound to a specific lvl, or is it possible to be pulled trhough classquests by a lvl 50 friend until chapter2?

Assuming like most things in the game tied to class quest completion (companions, ship, legacy surname) you should be able to get powered through if you want.

I tried it today and it doesnt work, because you have to have a minum level for some planets.
e.g.: you cant enter quesh without consulting a medical officer, but you cant visit him before a specific lvl. With my lvl 28 he doesnt give me any quest, so i cant visit quesh and therefore cant proceed with classquest. So the bad news for all the rushers: you have to lvl the normal way

Each class' buff applies all of your unlocked class buffs with a single click. It's not 4 buttons you have to keep on your quickbar. One click, all the buffs.

An example: I have an Imperial Agent that finishes Chapter 2. The Agent unlocks his class buff for my legacy. I now go log onto my level 1 Sith Inquisitor. When my Sith Inquisitor casts Mark of Power, it ALSO applies the effects of Coordination, since I have unlocked the Agent's buff.

Furthermore, to get the full set of buffs, you only need to unlock 4 classes. Unlocking the buff for Agent and Smuggler still only nets you a single buff effect, so you can't stack their +Crit bonuses together. (Because that might be a wee bit overpowered. Maybe.)

Clarification ends... now.
Thanks for the clarification. Off topic but why is there such a massive delay between when the system claims you made the post and when it actually shows up both here and on Dev tracker? This only showed up a few minutes ago, yet in the thread it appears like you were right in the middle of everyone talking.

You have to play.
There are other unlocks that you have to pay for.
Other ones that you can play or pay for.

Also if you buff another player they get all the buffs you. My level 1 Knight buffed someone and they also got the Smuggler buff.

PR reasons, they post ahead of the time but hide it until its been given the "ok" by the fact-checkers and grammer nazi's.

They stated in the guild summit that it does work in Warzones, so you can have one person have 4 characters up to chapter 2 and then go into a Civil War match with 8 troopers and still have all 4 buffs.
Kemira - Level 50 Miraluka Jedi Shadow Tank Ashonde - Level 50 Chiss Powertech Tank
Kel'nera - Level 50 Twi'lek Sith Sorcerer DPS Epick - Level 50 Sith Pureblood Juggernaut DPS

Isn't this is wrong, you'd only need 3 40's (or so. one of each class) to have all four buffs, provided you're not playing a duplicate class?
Be reasonable, do it my way.
