A Few Legacy Questions

Just a few questions on the whole legacy thing:

1. How will the unlocks work? I keep seeing a lot of speculation but can't seem to find a definitive answer. If I want to play a Chiss Inquisitor, for instance, how do I go about doing that? Do I have to level a Chiss to 50 first (Bounty Hunter or Agent) or do I pay for the unlock as some have suggested?

2. How do I get a Legacy name, not surname, but something like this:

Darth Dark Evil
<The Darkity Dark Legacy> <-------this is what I mean.
<Inset Guild Name Here>
Mydnite - Sith Assassin Charnel- Sith Marauder Mourn - Sith Sorcerer
Arryanna - Imperial Sniper Malefica - Sith Juggernaut

1. You either roll a Chiss of any class to 50, or purchase the species unlock.

2. You get your legacy name when you finish Chapter 1 for the first time. You'll get a prompt. Keep in mind it affects all characters on that server.

1. You reach a certain legacy level (you gain it like you do xp) and you can if you have a toon of that race at level 50 unlock it through the legacy tree. OR you can buy it with ingame credits.

2. Legacy is gained when you finish Act / chapter 1 of your class's story and you give your legacy a name. It then adds it as surname OR a tag that says "the blah blah legacy" depending on your preferences set up.

Welcome to SWTOR btw apparently you must be new

In case the other two weren't clear enough you can have your Legacy name on a separate line using the preferences menu.

Oh no, been here for quite some time, I just didn't know about the preferences for the legacy title. Thank you for the info.

Good thing my surname wasn't too Sith-y, that could be awkward on a Jedi.
