so i got this way super cool FREE starship that i apparently know how to pilot (for FREE) and go into space combat with, but i have to pay 40k credits just to learn to ride a personal speeder?

i understand game money sinks and can accept the cost of personal speeders themselves, but this is just silly.

judging by posts made on the cost of training abilities, respecs and gear repair at high levels as well, there should be a complete reevaluation of money sinks and mandatory expenditures so they fall on the more reasonable side.

40k aint much at that level. 1 full inventory of loot at level 22 = 10k or more.

It's to keep everyone from becoming crazy rich. I have over 150k and I'm level 32. Just imagine how much money I would have if I didn't have to pay a but load for training.

The spaceship is needed to travel between planets. There is no way to do it without one.

The speeder is an optional luxury that you can choose to buy for 40k, you do not have to buy it.

I have a 21 toon with 47k. I've been working on crafting too (Synthweaving) so it's not like I've just been gathering and selling crap. I've just sold some of the items I made on the GTN which has made me some money.

I will probably have somewhere near 70k by the time I hit 25. I don't think it's a lot of money.
Space, is big. Really big. You just won't believe how vastly hugely mindbogglingly big it is. I mean you may think it's a long way down the road to the chemist, but that's just peanuts to space...

Okay.

Now explain why your character is so stupid you have to be level 25 and pay for training for a speeder, but you can fly a million credit starship with no training at all at level 13+.
