Just spitballing here.
Two of my characters have received the kit; one is 50, the other is 37. Receiving the kit from BioWare wasn't my real concern - it was figuring out the long-term mission of the Inheritance Kits items.

I held off on exchanging it because I thought it was a bug that I couldn't get it for another class.

But cool, now I'll mail it off to the other alt I just started.

I like the idea of BtL, but since having certain stats effectively makes an item only useful for one class or AC, as they have it implemented now it's pretty useless. If the items were higher level, like upper 30s or 40s, then you would at least be able to use them for a while, but a level 14 item is probably only going to be useful for two or three hours at most. If the legacy items morphed stats based on who was holding them, then they might be kind of useful, since you could pass them around.

Also, the free one is nice, but the costs of the kits for the other pieces are completely out of whack with reality given that it's an unmoddable level 14 item.

The other ones are supposed to provide a low level boost to new alts.

I'm confused. So I recieved this "Inheritance Mainhand Weapon Construction Kit" when I logged on today with my level 50 Smuggler. What do I do with it? I have a low-level Bounty Hunter, can he use it and when?

Edit: And HOW does he use it?

I think if the item was allowed at level 10 or 11, then it would be more helpful. Allowing it at level 1-9 could interfere with the stories (for those force users who have to make or obtain their own). Having the weapon being effective for 5-7 levels would be much better than 1-3.

You mail it to the alt you want to have it. He trades it in at the capital city where legacy item vendors have been added.

So you are mad at Bioware for not implementing the feature you made up in your head?

People are whining about the quality of something they got for free? Really?

So I would like to hear from the Bioware Team if these items are supposed to level with the character or not. If so do you have to level 1 time and do you have to use the item for the entire level to set the stats on the Item? Please Help. I just hit 45 last night on my alt so it will be a while before I hit 46.
