Species Unlock Server Specific?

Hi!

So, I am a little sad right now. >.< I came back after a year away, decided to subscribe, found out I could be a Chiss anything with legacy unlock and/or cartel purchase. Super Excite!

On the server I played on ages ago, I had a level 35 with a legacy unlocked of course. I went on that server and bought the Chiss unlock, which said it would unlock that species for any character creation I chose to do. It did NOT, anywhere, state that it could only be on THAT server. [Or am I blind?]

I went back to the server where I play now, went to make my new Chiss Inquisitor - low and behold, I am unable. I figure, well, maybe I need to unlock a legacy here first? So I level a character to 10 and begin my legacy.

Yet still, I cannot make a chiss inquisitor. It says it is locked.

So my query is: Do I need to buy MORE Cartel Coins and unlock this on a per server basis? Was this specified somewhere and I did not see it? Can the unlock be transferred? I mean, I tried to research and read very carefully, and since Cartel Coin balance is account wide, and I have met the criteria of level 10 and legacy unlock AND purchased the unlock and used it... I appear to have met all the stated requirements.

I'm sad. :*(
Let them see what is not there, and feel what does not touch them.
When they no longer trust their senses... that is the time to strike.

My understanding is that legacy unlocks apply to a given legacy. So you have a legacy on that server, and you bought the Chiss legacy unlock which, well, applied that unlock to that legacy. On a different server, you have a different legacy (or no legacy at all), so... the short form is that as I understand things, the legacy unlocks are per-legacy (and thus per-server).

Sorry to be the bearer of bad news. That's something they probably could clarify in the Market, you're right. :/
