I apologize if this has already been answered, but I was trying to dig through some of the legacy topics, and I was wondering if there are any unlocks or features of 1.2 that allow your legacy characters to level faster?

Thanks!

The leveling experience was not altered in any way.

In short: No.

We could pre-order in July? Whatever.

the "coming soon" part of the legacy interface adds xp buffs (pvp, flashpoint, or quests?) that you can buy for legacy alts.

As of right now, there's no xp buff, but the characters you level will gain presence, from previous maxed out companions on higher chars. Other than the performance upgrade for your companions on legacy alts, that's about all there is currently.

Also if you have toons that have finished Chapt. 2 of their main story line you get their class buff on all your other toons. That can really help when leveling a new toon.

Except for having the potential for always having all 4 class buffs. That alone can make a huge difference in the total time it takes from 1-50.

Purchasable character-specific upgrades (including increased XP for certain elements of the game) are indeed in the Coming Soon tab of Legacy. You can expect these upgrades to become available in Game Update 1.3.

Thanks again everyone.

Has there been any communication around the time (month?) that 1.3 is planned?

everyone is missing one thing if you have a lvl 50 human you will get a "decent" presence buff making your companion tougher... so lvling and soloing should be easier on all toons from that point on...

but no not faster...(gona have to keep an eye out for unintended side effects tho might be able to exploit a few lvls here or there.)
