Other than making you have your own story and own virtual star wars family, does having a legacy benefit you with? I know it helps you be able to buy other races in the cartel shop. But anything else?

Buy global unlocks with creds or legacy level instead of paying real money?

It allows you to buy unlocks, so you can get your speeder licenses earlier, allows you to buy faster rates of experience, and some unique unlocks, such as rocket boots. You also can create legacy items, so a new character has better than average starting equipment.
Peace can be found, above all passions. Through passion, I may gain strength.
Through strength, I may gain power. Through power, I may gain victory.
But for every enemy fallen, a new foe rises.
For every chain broken, new chains bind me. Only the Force can set me free.

Honestly to me the most helpful thing ever is the unlocking of a GTN and mailbox for your ship. This unlocks account wide for all your characters and saves so much time on the early planets if you need to get some gear, you don't have to go running back to fleet.

I'll be honest...other than that the legacy system is kind of "meh" especially the vendor.

Yep. Ship astromech-droid (sell stuff) + mailbox + gtn in ship -> You don't ever need to leave ship with your crafters

It makes the game much easier in many ways. Being able to buff yourself with all 4 class buffs is a biggy. Legacy gear, legacy purchases, etc, etc.

There are also legacy bonuses when you complete your class companion's stories and class story.
