Can you send mail between factions ?

Good evening .

I'd like to know, if you could send mail, between the Republic and Empire factions ?

Some players tell me you can, while others tell me "only if you're part of a Legacy" .

Who, or which, is correct ?

Thank you in advance .

For all characters, Imperial or Republic, can now send cross-faction mail as of game update 1.2.

Pretty sure it has to be to a character in your legacy no?

I have never tried to send anything outside of a legacy, so I do not know.

You could roll two new toons and see if it at least extends to your account easily enough.
Have one send the other their medpacs or something.

I do it all the time, but all my toons are part of my legacy. I did try when they weren't and it wouldn't let me send and I believe that was after 1.2 was released.
It's a trap

Greetings everyone!

We appreciate everyone who took the time to respond to GibbsSlap's question!

According to Patch Notes for Game Update 1.2:

  • Players with a Legacy can now send unbound and bound-to-Legacy items to other characters on the same account via in-game mail (even if the characters are not of the same faction).
We hope this helps!
