Newflash. You devote 100 hours each to 4 different toons, you are NOT "working" harder than someone who devotes 400 hours to one toon. Yet you were give the buffs "for free". People are just asking to be allowed to PAY for them.

Now both those teams are short on tanks, I would really like to roll a Jugg, but I am actually hesitant to because I feel like I would be "missing out".

They should just calculate whatever legacy level you would need roll 4 toons through chapter 2, and make the buffs purchasable for those at that legacy level.
This is a great idea! I only have 1 toon, but I'm legacy level 25. I've probably played as much if not more than someone who has every toon through chapter 2. Probably more seeing as my legacy was earned purely through PvP which is significantly slower.

So shame on all of you saying I'm lazy and want it on a silver platter. There shouldn't be anything unavailable to someone legacy level 25 IMO.

But this is clearly BW's plan. They want everyone to have a 50 of every class, so that way when they mess up the fotm in a patch people wont ***** too much because they can just switch to their other characters.

Yeah, when will they learn that success of a game isn't on how many toons you can level, but the breadth of things to do while you're playing.

Seeing as 1.4 is around the corner, I want to raise awareness on this issue again.

1: Make it so that War hero gear is purchasable with just credits.
2: Make it so that War hero gear isn't better than other stuff so that time invested doesn't equate to a bonus."

That's pretty much what you're saying, except with a different subject. There's nothing stopping you from going out and getting these buffs for yourself, it didn't have it's availability limited to a specific time frame.

Secondly, at some point, I imagine they will be purchasable with credits. I recall Bioware saying that some things were going to start off as legacy only unlocks and then transition into credit unlocks in the future.

If you're not content to wait for when/if that happens, then you have to ask yourself how much the buffs mean to you. If they are that massive a difference to your viability, as an avid PvP'er you'll gladly go out and acquire the buffs. If they're not that massive that they warrant you putting effort in, then it's probably also not worth complaining about.

As a side note: Most dedicated PvPers that I know have rolled multiple classes, and that was before the buff sharing came into effect. They do it because a good PvP player knows the other class almost as well as their own, which is a level of understanding you can only genuinely get by playing it yourself.
Very well said!!

Might as well ask for datacrons to be purchasable too, I mean who has time to get those when all you do is PVP.

Good idea! Maybe make it with legacy levels 25+ seeing as there is no reason or want/need past 25 now.

A) Get a guild, get in voice, call for rebuff.

B) Do all the class quests

C) Unsub

There is your options, deal with it.

There is no imbalance at all, you're just to lazy to balance it out for yourself.

It's different with Swtor,the longevity of this game relies heavily on each player having multiple characters, i'm sure that any players that still play this game have at least 2-3 characters , and the players that only have 1 char atm are in minority or unsubbed long time ago. To get all 4 buffs,you only need to level 4 different class and complete chapter 2 (~level 40).

The majority of players already had 2-3 buff available so there's really isn't that much imbalance in pvp. The imbalance is only like a player will full datacron collected vs a player with no datacron.
