I must have ignored it, because weapons are not hard to get at all. And yes, the vehicle is becoming unrealistic for people not only in the cost but also in the binding to that character that they may not want the vehicle on. Cmon BW let's make these changes happen. Legacy Bound Helixs and Vehicles.

i admit i feel abit cheated i bought one of those crappy sabers because i thought what they offered at the time was it so i might aswell spend it on something.. now i dont demand a refund but it would be nice to get some more info on what kind of items these vendors are supposed to sell... and maybe add another faction for new stuff to work on instead of adding it to a pre existing faction on whom most have allready wasted their currency on, not knowing better stuff was to come..

No thanks.

Just, man, what's the big deal if things take a little while to get? They already brought back this event WAY too soon and now people are upset that they can't get the Gree speeder RIGHT NOW.

I don't really see much point in role-playing a lifetime of journeys in a character if everything is just *poof* available instantly or easily.

I wish more people would enjoy the gameplay and the anticipation and effort it takes to actually *get* something rare.
Here's my referral link if you want your 7 days and free transfer:
Remove Datacrons from Legacy and give them a meaningful % boost that scales with level.

I don't think that's a good idea. Why not just create a new vendor to buy more helix currency with? Only available at champion tier, roughly let 1000 rep points exchange to 1 helix.

The ONLY reason I feel this is reasonable is that the max helix you can gain without the very hard to to access HM 16 player xeno clear is 1 per day on the main heroic mission and the handful for the Xeno story clear, which i believe is 6 for 16 player, with the exception of the few that you get from the relays mission or the initial xenoanalyst referral mission (i believe that gave a few, maybe it was just a purple rep comm).

I did the 16 player hard mode the 2nd week, I believe only 8 the first week in addition to story mode, and ended up with 31 helix, without diligently clearing the heroic every single day. From a start point of 9, I determined that I can in fact hit 48 by the end of the 2nd week here this time but only by getting the hard mode 16 player and story mode, and 11 clears of the daily heroic. So it kind of feels like there absolutely must be an alternative for players or their alts that just aren't viable to approach the hard mode op for this event.

One other idea I had if not a trade for just rep items, let some type of material or currency item that simply drops for you while killing any enemies or players in the event, better chance to drop off of the bosses/stronger enemies at the end of each mission, which can then be exchanged up for helix currency or more rep trophies. that item could then be bought and sold as well via GTN. this will create an option for non operation ready players to fill in that gap of the 12-16 helix currency they can't get from the HM xeno in the 2 week span

My alts have one or two comms left after they bought some weapons i wish i could transfer those remains to one char so they won't just be useless crap. I agree with hallucigenocide. If i knew that good stuff is coming i would not have spend comms on just anything

If I'm doing the math right, the maximum number of components that any one character can earn over the two week period is 42, not enough for the mount. (14 per week for Xeno SM + HM, and 7 per week for Primary Testing.) I'll be able to buy one because I have some leftover components for last time, but if they were tradeable I could get 3 mounts. But as it stands now, most of the components will be wasted until the next event.

I agree with this. People whining about "you want rare item so fast haha lol u noob suxor go pleh and grind for nice things trololol" also FAIL to realize is that if I do the SAME missions on my 5 50 alts, then it's super boring doing the same thing for 14 days in a row times 6 chars. AND if I did it with that many alts, I'm ALREADY putting in the grind time to get these things. Pooling the components would be really nice seeing as how all the rewards are BtL anyways, save the mount which is BoP.

On a side note, please bear in mind ALL other event items were tradable... helix components are not.

Bioware invites us to max reroll characters for a while but we get no avantage from doing Gree's whith them
as far I get about 10 helix on each 4 rolls so 40 helix but I can't event buy the cheapest weapon ... I very glad to have all these recommendation that are useless pass legend ....

No response on this? As I said, it's impossible for any one character to get enough components in a two-week period. Allowing us to pool them would be a huge help...

I would like the helix legacy bound also.
