Also, where did you have to go on tat that you couldn't bypass an imp base? I'm not quite there on my scoundrel yet with Corso so idk. You should be able to bypass every imp base on tat.
It is around the location of the +3 Aim datacron on Tatooine, which is nested in canyon between two imp bases, and the only access to it is through either imp bases, or through Outlaws Den (see this map for the Datacron location to get the idea - http://www.swtor-spy.com/img/datacro..._41_26_721.jpg)

Nope, there is a tunnel between Outlaws Den und the imp base, using it you can travel from the Dune Sea to the datacron without getting flagged - or getting killed.

Nope tunnel just north of outpost Zaroshe. The imps often forget about this when we flank in wpvp

But you can get anywhere on the map without encountering Imperial base guards, well at least the areas you are supposed to go lol.

  • Quick Travel - You can travel to your Stronghold anytime you can use Quick Travel currently. Also, as a subscriber you have a few options on where you can travel to from your Stronghold, including back to the coordinates you just came from.

Yes! Kotor nostalgia!! Thank you!!!!! I've thought of these 'strongholds' more as 'Wow! the Taris hideout is coming to the game!!!!' than 'YES!! Player housing!'
May the Force be with you. is... is that how it goes? yes, may the Force be with you.

Something delightful I thought of: it would be cool to be able to display armor sets around your stronghold. Being a "stronghold" or "castle" and all it's appropriate.

Hello Eric and TOR team,
I am confused about alt characters. Can I have 1 apartment and have all my characters living there? Or since I'm a subscriber do I have 1 Nar Shadaa Skypalace per character?
Also (you don't have to answer this one just I case in someway it is a spoiler) will there be some form of a vendor to get your stronghold or will there be a mission?
I am really looking forward to this update it sounds AWESOME. I was a bit annoyed about pushback but the extra features level it out!
Thanks in advance

Strongholds are legacy-wide, meaning that technically all your chracters can live in there. But as far as we know, you cannot place them inside, so only one of your characters will be visible there.
And there is both vendor and a mission to lead you to it
