like the tittle says, in stead of them being Bind on Pick-up or bound on equip they should be Account /legacy bound, since the cartel market coins are account shared it makes more sence if the items u purchase with them are account shared aswell(not 1 set of items for each character, but the same item being made so its freely tradable between characters in your account, but not tradable to a diferent person)

Many times it has happened to me, that i buy something for 1 of my chars, then i level him max, and get boring of playing with him and after a wile, so i end up starting a new character, but then i miss all the cool stuff(gear/pets/speeders/etc) i had on that character.

Since we are already paying for those cartel coins(one way or another), we shoudn't be forced to buy things twice just becouse we decided to start a new character from the begining, neither should we be forced to just forget about all those items like if we had never purchased them in the first place.
Many wish this game had a Hard Mode Story mode after u reach level 50 so u could re-do all the story again with ur character, his skill, gear, ect, well this ain't exactly what those ask for, but it would be something at least close to it, letting u transfer ur speeders, clothes etc to your new character, in stead of penalising u because u liked ur character and its story and want to re-play it.

All this, ofcourse, taking in consideration level cap for gear, speed training required for vehicles, if the items contain any mods(if that is the case they should not be tradable until mods are removed), etc. So that the game stays balanced.

-"remove/delete" option for pets and speeders from our abilities panel.
-"sell to NPCs option" for Cartel Gear(bounded gear), pets and speeders.
-"make Pets/Speeders AND Cartel items(specially GEAR) legacy bound in stead of character bound.

I think it's kind of foolish to think BW would make this change and risk losing money.

well considering they had to realease FTP option in the first place cos they were LOOSING money already, BIG BIG TIME, its not so foolish to spect them to make the experience of playing this game, and re-playing it over and over again, worth the time and the money we invest on it....

yes, should be legacy bound and have the possibility to sell then to a NPC vendor, GTN in my server has 43 page of 68 full of junk that no one buys, but it cost real money no one wants to destroy it
there is 10 pages alone of banners selling at 100 credits

I'd definitely be in favor of equitable items such as the Cartel Weapons and Armors being make Bind on Legacy and making the power ups account wide. (Which do titles only apply to one character anyway?)

It should and they know it. But the cash influx is just too hard to resist that they'll implement it later if ever at all.

No, they should not be bound to Legacy.

Cartel Coins are already Legacy, so buy what you want with the toon you want to use it with. Here we go again with "I earned something on one toon so ALL my toons should have it". This spam request is getting so old. If you want something for a toon then EARN it and stop crying for everything to be given to every toon you have. Why should my Social X "Big Time" title go to all my toons when they are all <Social V?

And it seems as though Yellow works for the developers and has access to financial information and is breaking company policy I'm sure by posting that info here.
