Really disappointed that after XX Cartel Packs, I finally hit Legend with Bounty Supply Company Vendor, get the Vectron BL-37 Zephyr, only to find it has no Legacy Unlock option.

So I think any items which don't have this option should be removed from collections as its misleading, either that or remove the certificates all together, they are unnecessary, I think its enough to reach Legend!

It is awesome, and I would spend 1200CC to get it unlocked, but I'm not buying any more CC as long as those certificates are needed for items I've already bought and are highlighted in collections!

Guys, if you hover your mouse over it, it specifically states that additional copies of this can only be purchased at the vendor. No collection unlock. The same for all the old chestpieces they embargoed and put on the CM vendor. So you can't claim that you "didn't know" and "wasted" your certificates.

Besides. After opening that many packs, you should have easily 10-15 certs, which is enough for 2-3 of these things. Just send the certs over to your other character and buy one.

All items available for unlock have special symbol on them, and this vehicle didn't have that box with arrow thingie on it. There was nothing misleading about it. If you cannot pay attention to icons, read mouseover text etc, who is to blame, but you?

There are many items in collections that are not available for unlock - cartel armors with mods, all cartel-reputation gear and companion customization, PTS titles and so on. Guess, reading terms before purchase is an art that is hard to master.

And, tbh, it isn't very expensive at all given what you are getting. I think it is 100k and it is one of the coolest speeders in the game.

It's a valid question. I don't think that character with unlocked speeder need another copy of it. So what is the point of having it in collections if it can't be unlocked? Loving collection but this solution is quite pointless.

Maybe BW thinks it will work like an ad for having more cartel packs?

The unique vendor stuff has never been unlockable for collections. It says so on the description of the item in collections. Items without the CM symbol are generally not eligible for unlocking through collections (although if you get an item for the vendor that is also available in CM packs, this is an exception). You could have asked in chat and gotten that answer. There are several threads on here about this, so you could have spent a couple of minutes and found the answer. Basically, you assumed something, didn't bother to look into it, and assumed incorrectly. So you supposedly set out to obtain this item without first determining whether your assumption was correct. That's your fault, not BW's. More importantly, if you're claiming you bought all the CM packs it would take to hit legend standing just for this 1 vehicle, then I'm calling BS.

Certificates have other purposes, such as being able to buy certain popular items from packs and embargoed items.

It's in there for tracking purposes because some people like to "collect" things.

I honestly don't see the harm in them actually letting us unlock stuff like that through Collections once we've made the original purchase with certificates.
Some points that work in favor of allowing these to be unlocks (IMO at least):

- The Certificates are used across all Cartel factions (AKA currently both the Resale Corp and the Bounty Supply).

- The Certificates are rare enough that it'd be pretty hard to get every item from those vendors even once.

- I'm pretty sure it'd be a positive thing for them rather than a negative one, there are all too many people willing to spend more CC to unlock some of these items across their Collection, and this is something that they can only do with CC as opposed to getting more packs which they can get off the GTN.

Not to mention a lot of people are probably unwilling to gamble even more to get another copy of the item that they like, Bioware would probably have an easier time "suckering" them into spending even more CC/money with these unlocks.
Especially if they keep adding new, well stocked vendors like they have been.
Thanks for showing us you listen to our feedback, Bioware!
