I cant help but to be a bit disappointed by the fact that Treek is not available via a long solo story mission like HK was. Also, I still think that the level cap for Treek (Legacy 40) is far to high. I would have personally expected it to be at around level 20-25, due to the fact that those at higher level will either be concentrating on endgame non-solo stuff, or already have a large number of high level alts.

The CC price doesn't surprise me, given how those who buy it are bypassing the in-game system. Still would be nice if, for items like Treek, a Collection unlock actually came with the purchaser. Anyway, despite the niggles I have with this introduction of Treek, I am very glad that they are adding in an option of how to get her rather then let her be an elitist show-off toy.

I am very much looking forward to concurring the known galaxy with my new Ewok companion (Well, save it sometimes as well I suppose when playing Rep/Light Side, but I am more of an Empire guy. . .). Treek seems to have a fascinating backstory and character, and I look forward to learning more about her!

Glad to see you've made getting this, er, companion (I can't really bring myself to call it a companion tbh) easier to get account wide via in-game means. Figured I wouldn't be getting the bear on more than one toon if it was the same as HK, but now I might. Shame you didn't listen to all the feedback you got about being able to buy your way past the Legacy requirement though.

Ignoring the fact that feedback on what people wanted in a new comp was completely disregarded, this news isn't too bad.

I'm suprisingly impressed how you've handled this. Good job.

That's double the price of a bloody 'expansion' for one companion. PER CHARACTER.
It's a bribe to bypass legacy requirement. Bribes aren't cheap.

Man this community has truly gone to the dogs. Venomous dogs. That hate each other.

As for Treek, I have so many cartel coins lying around thanks to the subscription, I'll probably just buy her that way.
Three months? Whatever.

While I am grateful that you have added a companion I'm not at all interested in ewoks. Also, I really like the way we had to quest for HK. I would like to see tons of big quests like that for various things and not just see everything on the CM.

Ps; Please NEVER add a gungan to this game.

since some people will now have 8 companions, may i suggest that those with 7 or 8 companions be able to perform 6 or 7 crew skill missions simultaneously, respectively?

i understand the intention behind not allowing more than 5 missions was to preclude players from having to decide between having a companion present, or maxing crew skill gathering. setting the max number to one less than your number of companions would uphold this philosophy.

Legacy Level 40 for purchase is fine. One MILLION credits? Plus another 300K credits for additional toons? TOO FREAKIN' HIGH!

Seriously, that's not a "reward" for completing Legacy 40. It should really be something like 50K credits to unlock via Legacy 40. A million credits is just frankly ridiculously high and a majority of player characters won't have that kind of spending cash, so this rewards only hardcore crafter types and the wealthy 1%.

So much for feeling like there is ANY benefit at all to hitting Legacy 40 and above.
