1.3 comes along, and again, more legacy fluff comes along, and again I'd have to shell out a bazillion credits if I want to tinker with the legacy perks. Except this time, it's even worse because they're per character.

I know credits aren't terribly hard to come by in the game, but come on! The legacy perks cap out at level 25. I'm sure more will be added later. I'm LL30 and the XP just keeps on piling up as I keep throwing my cash at Bioware - and yet you guys keep putting credit sink barriers with ridiculous numbers up? Really?

At least start giving legacy unlocks after LL25 to give a discount on legacy perk prices for us losers with no life that support your game!

LOL Legacy level 30......

I'm legacy level 50..... and I have been so for at least 4 months Bioware doesn't care, they don't listen to us, and they love changing their story even after certain developers tell people at a Guild summit things. or they just plainly ignore posts.

I see why there are credit costs to the perk, but making everything cost credits and not require legacy levels totally undermines the purpose of legacy levels at all.

Anyone that's been playing since launch should be well past 25, making the current level requirements a joke.

I guess people were expecting the devs to put in other meaningfull credit sinks and not simply change the oh so lauded legacy system into a credit draining beta for an eventual cash shop. I wouldn't even have a problem with this approach if it didn't completley devalue the legacy xp/lvl system at the same time.

One thing I will say, not including the incresed sprint speed that they teased us with was smart on BWs part. They're skirting the boundries of good taste with these perks as is, that would totaly have been one of the core gameplay elements for sale instead of readly abailable to everyone, pay to win in essence (albeit with just ingame credits for now). People haaaate that lol.

I agree, the prices should reduce the higher you get on your legacy level. That being said, this game needed more credit sinks pretty badly, I think this was there slapped on solution.

I am not one of the players who ever complained about having too much money in this or any MMORPG I have ever played. I am not advocating for "free stuff" or that I be "given everything". I will leave it to you to click my sig for the explanation.

As it should be. I'm of the opinion that there simply shouldn't be a way to unlock existing species with credits - they're altogether too common.

There shouldn't have been a need to unlock species in the first place. Character customization is an important part of modern MMOs. The decision to gate certain species behind specific classes was senseless.

Brilliant nickname.

Though when it comes to Brazilian music I am more fond of Tropicalia.

Still, Bossa Nova is surreal. Pure beauty
