Create your own Character Perks

These ideas are nice, but I think they are sending the wrong message and aren't fully representative of all players. Not everyone wants even more exorbitant credit sinks. There should at least be some perks that are obtained by legacy level alone. They're also contrary to the idea of Legacy in the first place - the whole point was originally to tie your characters together, like a family, so that one character could have the abilities and benefits of another. These character-specific perks of extortionate cost are a step in the wrong direction.

I get that gold sinks are necessary in an MMO, but they should be restricted to rare items or vanity. There's no need to extort the 80-90% of people who do not even have more than 1 million credits (I believe a statistic like that was given at the guild summit) just to be able to use features that are supposedly for everyone.

For the record, I play the GTN and have millions of credits at my disposal, but I still think this system is flawed. I despise dailies and can only imagine how painful it is for the average player without business know-how to accumulate credits to buy these unlocks or do even the most basic thing that is taken for granted in most other MMO's - changing your appearance - without having to do a week of dailies beforehand.

Excuse my brashness but I find it unbelievable that people are making these suggestions and actually want to spend 3 million credits on something that should be available to everyone, like dual-spec. I guess this is their way of having something that others don't?

There's a reason WoW's economy thrives. The basic things like dual spec, changing your appearance, and respeccing are incredibly affordable and are available at early levels. But there are tons of things that are incredibly difficult and/or expensive to get, but these are things to show off with rather than basic commodities. I didn't mind building up 750,000 gold to buy a Swift Spectral Tiger, but years ago I did mind having to grind up 10,000 or however much it was when dual-spec was first introduced and when gold was much more difficult to get.

Being a Light Side Sith Inquisitor, I would absolutely LOVE to be part of the Jedi. Me and Ashara would be quite happy if this were to come to pass.

Make. This. Happen!

Oh god, please none of this crossover stuff from other Bioware games. Besides, I think they already said they won't be giving any new personal ships because of cutscene issues.

Or they could just buy the Field Respec for 200k. It has no cooldown, works anywhere and I doubt you respec that much that you'd push the cost through the roof.

Even if it is just a bandaid because Bioware once again didn't list to the Beta community, it's still serves the same purpose.
