datacron unlock legacy

I'm gonna say no on this, and hope they do the same. This is content, not main content, but content none the less. And if they start giving out legacy "I did this once and don't ever want to do it again." purchases then we'll quickly have legacy valor, legacy rwz rank, legacy companion affection, and eventually legacy op gear/wz gear (yes I know it's nearly possible currently, but at least it still has to be repeatedly earned on A character, even if it's not the appropriate one and as far as I know they haven't yet even endorsed that as working as intended).

A legacy option to make getting the datacrons easier I would be fine with, but flat out give them to you? No way.

Character A goes through all the hard work in finding and obtaining all the datacrons.
Datacron Legacy Unlocks become available in Legacy window.
Characters B, C, and D (all belonging in the same legacy), unlock it through legacy unlocks so that they don't have to suffer the same misery all over again.

Character E, who is on another legacy (hence, on another server) does not get the benefit of the above legacy unlock.

It's not much different than the HK-51 legacy unlock feature,why is it so hard to implement / accept?

We are not saying that it should be given out freely to those who do not want to go and find the datacrons. All we want is the option that, once we have gone through the trouble in finding all the datacrons on one toon, we can share it via legacy with all our legacy toons.

A day may come, when our courage fails, when we forsake our class, and break all bonds from it; when we fall to our knees and cower in fear, and we look up to you and see death as inevitable. But today is not that day. Today, we fight!

The point is that if your warrior found a datacron, there is no reason why your smuggler should get the bonus as well. If you want the bonus on your smuggler, then go get the datacron on your smuggler. They should be character only, and not legacy wide.

If you found every datacron on your 50, why should that new level 1 character start with all the stat bonuses?

No, go and work for them like those of us that did, you add stats to your toon so if they sold it in the CM that would be a Pay to Win.

And who in their right mind is going to hunt THE SAME datacrons on six characters ?

a) it's not fun
b) it's not fun

I have done all datacrons on 3 toons now. its easy once you know where they all are. its about playing the game not buying your way through it.

You don't have to hunt the same datacrons on more than one character. You can choose to do without the stat bonuses they provide. If you want the bonuses, you have to put in the time on each character. I think that's very fair.

YES! Please make the datacrons a legacy unlock. I agree that we need to find the datacrons at least once but it is very time-consuming and boring to find them on multiple toons. I too like to level multiple alts but I definitely don't want to spend the hours and hours of time to find the datacrons on each toon.

IF you enjoy doing boring, repetetive stuff all over again, hell, be my guest.

But DO NOT, I repeat DO NOT tell others that it is fun only because you find it fun.

Nowhere did she say it was fun, only that it was easy once you know where they all are. Datacrons should not be legacy wide. The arguments of "it's boring" or "I already found them once" are just excuses to justify laziness.
