Make more of EVERYTHING bind to Legacy!

If you really want to push forward the benefits of Legacy, more items should bind to legacy instead of the one character.

I roll 6 character right now, at different levels and crafting levels as well. I want more of what I find and/or make while playing to bind to my Legacy, so i can share it between my toons. They are all me, so why does it make much difference which of the characters found it or made it?

This was the main reason I rolled so many characters, to have unique crew skills and help each other out. Now turns out many of the top items bind on pickup, so after I collect the materials and produce it I can only use it on that one character. Why?

A schematic that produces something that binds on pickup makes no sense. So you make it once or twice and that is it?? What is the point? At least if it binds to Legacy you can use it a few more times.

Also, here is a new concept : Bind to Guild? :-)

I don't know if this is a Sith thing, but at the beginning of every game conversation my first thought is "You are so dead"...

Bind to guild is an interesting concept...

and I say yes to more bind on legacy loot.

...or provide some way of changing an item from bound to legacy-bound. Based on item level and steepen the curve at the high end.

Could be a Legacy perk : when you get a certain level, you can buy the power to convert items from "Bound" to "Legacy Bound". That would be cool.

The current system already allows us to grind gear for our alts and send them over throgh legacy armor. It's great. I'd like to get legacy lightsaber hilts so i can transfer my rare crystals. I have three white crystals on my Sith but I am not using them since every Sith should use red... I'd love to send them to my Jedi.

I agree, more bound to legacy gear is needed, especially moddable items. I'd like to see a few different sets of mandalorian armor available to be bought only by a level 50 BH, but can be traded to other characters in legacy.

I think things should bind to legacy instead of character too, even if we'd have to buy it as a perk.

What a crazy random happenstance!
