Great I hope you enjoy it.

I like ING housing in general, but weighing this stuff out so far it doesn't hold enough appeal for me to bother with.

Sorry, disagree. Given that getting to a Stronghold and back takes about 30 seconds, Legacy Storage becomes an excellent shared Weapons Locker for your legacy.

For example: last night my wife and I were finishing the Makeb story line on Makeb on our Jugs. Using a DPS companions wasn't getting the job done on the fight with the Archon, so I borrowed a set of Legacy Aim gear from another alt, put it on Treek, and even though the fight glitched took the Archon down.

That took a few minutes because I had to log off, log on to the alt, mail stuff, log off, log on, get a mail droid, regroup, etc. Then later I had to send all the gear back and repeat the process in reverse.

If only I had my Stronghold, I thought!
I could have QT'd to the Stronghold, grabbed the gear from Legacy Storage, QTd back - in less than a minute. And later I'd repeat the process to put the gear back. All without even leaving the group.

It does allow Bind-on-Equip (BoE) gear to be stored and transferred, and Bound-to-Legacy gear as well. You just cannot regular Bound gear in it.

If I want more than one stronghold, I have to spend a significant number of credits to unlock that. If I want to decorate my stronghold... well, you get the point.

I'm certainly not opposed to being patient. I have to be patient already because I play casually. But doing any ONE of these things will take me several months. It could take years if I want to partake in all of it. I already do a LOT of picking and choosing for content. Lots of people do. Now we're getting cut out of some interesting new content just because BW decided that everyone can just sneeze and be rich in the game.

Why drop all of this at once? Couldn't it have been introduced a little more thoughtfully, over time? At least I would have had the false hope of making progress for a little while. Now I just... I just don't and I just won't.
Just pretend they didn't drop it all at once, but instead dropped it in exactly the priority order you would have liked it to be dropped in. Then acquire the things in that priority order.

Yeah, it's going to be great around this time next year when I can afford the second tab of legacy storage.

Is it going to take you a year to earn 5 million?

Very possibly. Unless I absolutely resolve to not spend any credits on anything else. Then it will take 6 or 8 months, I reckon.

Sorry but one tab wont even hold just the high end mats I have on one toon.

A maximum of 5 tabs for 50 million is not nearly enough to hold all the mats I have across every toon for every gathering profession.

It is overpriced for it's limited usage.

And my point is that even if it's already bound, for 50 million credits, you should be able to take off your bound implant and send it to your alt which might just be your RP wife.

for 50 million credits the Legacy storage should act more like a legacy gear in how it transfers bound items. It needs more functionality for that kind of credit drop as well as more space.

What you mean "we"? I have a reason, two other players I run with have a reason, and we will all be expanding the Legacy Storage to the max on the day of release for a combination of credits and CC's. All three of us have run on the PTS, we all like the Strongholds quite a bit, and we all know how we will be using the Legacy Storage tabs.

BW might drop the price later, just like they did with Rise of the Hutts. We don't care. For us, it's worth it at the current PTS prices. YMMV, but at least you get one tab for free, right? Start using that, you'll probably be back for more.

That's probably why BW is giving it to you for free but only a first taste. It's a classic tactic.

50 million credits? Hell, most players don't play TOR long enough to cumulatively accumulate that many credits.

I wonder what crackpipe BW was smoking from when they made this pricing decision.
