Concur. Glad that info became available. The OP has my profound thanks for playing the part of a test dummy.

Refund please!
You'r not having a big enough tantrum...use more caps that might help.

Remember kids say anything remotely positive about SWTOR and you're automatically labeled a Bioware employee.

I don't know which ability you bought but mines on a 2 minute cooldown, unless I spend another 1 million to lower it by 30 seconds and then another 1.5 million to lower it by another 60 seconds. It's worded like it's cumulative so you can get Rocket Boost down to a 30second cooldown if you spend 4.5 million! So after that it's like a mount that only works for 24 seconds a minute, what a waste of money.

I couldn't find any info on Rocket Boost before I bought it, at least this way I can warn people from it.

Rocket boost is a speeder with a duration and cd (can't use indoors).

Some people spend 2 million, so others don't have to.

There's really not much in the legacy system that's truly useful to game play. Just cosmetic/convenience stuff that's really only intended for the uber rich to have something to spend their piles of credits on. (Read: money sink) Even the GTN for your ship is the useless neutral one. Don't waste your money.

P.S. If people don't waste their money on this crap they might actually put something useful in later. /shrug

Does Rocket Boost break stealth?

More Vroom-Vroom for my stealthers would be worth it to me, especially my poor Operative who feels like a lame dog when stealthed compared to my Assassin with Force Speed.

I wish Rocket Boots were usable everywhere, just like force speed is usable everywhere!

If everyone had the neutral GTN it would be very useful, but at this point in time hardly anyone will be legacy level 25 or be able to afford it. It will probably be useful in a years time or so...
