Galactic Reputation?

My primary concern about this is what exactly are the benefits to grinding this rep.

So far all they are teasing us with is new titles.

Will there be reputation based vendors that will sell unique items to players depending on reputation with the faction?

Agreed, for some of the Reputation Groups, it will be retroactive. Obviously the Gree Enclave won't but the Voss, or the Imperial Guard on Belsavis, etc will be Retroactive.

Should be retroactive. Why in the world does someone like me who has been here since launch and actually plays for the stories should have the same rep as some player who unsubbbed a long time ago or a new player.

Legacy is normally retroactive.
1)When they first released it, everything I had unlocked before the legacy update showed in my legacy. Like my Twi'lek species unlock and my companion presence unlocks.
2) In the test server, my legacy there has all my live server unlocks even though only one of my 50's is there.

The second they put it in the PTS is when I will find out since my legacy is already there.
and the Force beat generic Swords and Magic anyday

I expect the next daily area to be on Voss for this reason. Section X dailies will probably give Imperial Guard rep, the new Gree event dailies give Gree rep, and the Space dailies I assume will give First Imperial Fleet rep.

Ps. I hope its a fresh start for all. I'd dislike it if I'd be exalted with everything right away.

•Galactic Reputation is tied to your character’s Legacy, so enjoy earned Reputation Points and ranks across all characters in your Legacy!

Wow way to fail basic reading comprehension; but I guess that's the norm nowadays. They couldn't spell it out any easier and people still misunderstand and hear only what they want to hear.

Galactic Reputation points and progression is tied to all your Legacy characters. it has nothing else to do with Legacy or Legacy level, so far.

If Voss does have rep for it, getting Legendary the rep award should be unlock Voss as a playable species

Give another option to unlock species..

Since everyone is starting from zero and it will probably be rewarded for all quests done for a faction, it's a way to encourage some long time players to make new toons, as it will be easier to get rep from making normal quests than grinding the dailies, I know that many ppl won't agree with this course of action but I do. As for those that ask for it to be retroactive because legacy was - no it wasn't, we all started from lvl 1 as I remember, yes races were unlocked, but that was based on what 50 toons you had, also the companion, pvp and social legacy traits were based on a statistics that were already present in game from the very beginning, we don't have any reputation stat as right now, and no I don't think they should register and/or take into consideration all the quests for the faction that you did previously, what would be the point? They give you a new feature just so you could have it maxed out from the beginning? where is the fun in that?

I like that idea, but I don't think it will happen, because BioWare would surely have some money for them and also have you noticed how long it take them to get the Cathar done, so the Voss will also take like forever to get implemented into the game (and I want the Togruta first).

As far as an equal start I don't agree with that. It may have been a year ago but any of the lower level quests that I assume they will attach rep to, (such as when you help some random inept Imperial officer on Dromund Kaas you probably would get a little Imperial Military rep) we veterans completed. Not happy about getting cheated out of those accumulated points just because I was here at launch. Guess we'll see though even if it happens like that I assume they'll make up for it. Or suffer the wrath of forums. Think it's great the game is progressing. Just make sure their are some impressive rewards and such. Keep on trucking devs were getting there.
........you will try.
