I see a lot of guild features, which is great for those who are guilded, but what can we expect in terms of solo and puggable content? I assume that you can't spill the beans but can you give some indication on there being something to do for us too?

I think you did this the right way and the update looks great. But feel free to throw us some more bones in the way of information and screenshots!

My guild has a few questions:

(1) Companions- Is there an option to leave them out of the strongholds?

(2) Other Players- Is there an option to allow another person access to the stronghold (where you share access)

(3) The decorations are they allowed anywhere we would like.

Other than that this looks nice.

Have a nice day.

So, you named 2.8 galactic strongholds which meant big part of it was this which now you are pushing later. What is left in 2.8 then? When will we get a new op and when is the level increase?

Also, I know this is big news so I am going to be sticking around in the thread answering questions as I can. We probably aren't going to talk too much about the details of each feature yet but I will answer what I can

Thanks for sticking around and answering what you can!

I'll ask a question that I think you probably can't answer yet.

Could you give us an idea of order of magnitude for the base cost for the top of the line Guild flagship? Should we be thinking millions, tens of millions, or hundreds of millions after adding important features but before adding decorations?

Some questions I am seeing in the thread...
  • Companions in Strongholds - I am not sure this is locked down yet but I will see if I can find an answer on specifics.
  • Guild Conquests - We are not ready yet to go into super specifics. We will definitely have a blog on this in the future to explain how it all works!
  • How do I place decorations? - This is also something we will go into a bit more detail on in the future.

Will we get an option to instantly travel to our guild ship / stronghold(s)? If so, will we be able to travel back to where we left, kind of like how the queue system works, or will we have to make our way back normally?
