Since i'm new to SWTOR i'm hoping someone can tell me how collections work.

I bought the Eradicator's Suit from the Cartel Store for one of my characters. I thought that buying something from the store will unlock it for all my other characters. but when i load a different character and look in collections, the Eradicator suit is not unlocked so i can't equip it for my other characters.

can someone tell me if i'm doing something wrong?

Thanks.

In a dream galaxy far, far away... a customer calls up the SWTOR hotline to ask a question ...
(the following is the conversation as follows)

Customer Assistance:
Khankar ... first, after you bought the ERADICATORS SUIT, did you equip it entirely on the first character you want it on, or place mods in it? This would make it to be BOUND to that character. After this, then you can log into another character so you can unlock it on other characters. Some times, we see a glitch, as some call it a bug, where some things don't OPEN in collections right away. I suggest you either swap over to another character or log out entirely, or maybe even wait for 24 hours or even after a server restart as sometimes any of these actions will get the affected collections to open correctly. We do apologize for any issues you may be having. Hope this helps you resolve the issue.

Khankar:
Thanks.

Customer Assistance:
If you don't have any further questions Khankar, may we suggest taking our short survey at the end here, to let us know how we are doing and how we may best serve you, our loyal customer. We strive to have the best customer service in the business.

Nice. Not often you see a roleplay scenario in this forum. And the answer is correct, too.

Yes, you have to first equip all of the items (thus binding them to a character), then you can log onto another character and unlock that outfit for your entire account. Note that it does cost additional Cartel Coins to unlock it account-wide.

Do you have every piece of the set? If you want something thats a set to show up, you have to have the entire set.

From memory it's 480cc to unlock it for the rest of your chars, but I could be wrong.
Altoholic:100%, Explorer: 80%, Socializer: 73%, Achiever: 33%, Killer: 13%
