What would make the expansion worth it?

First of all, im the oldfasion guy and i like to get a boxed version of the expansion. Id pay extra for that.
1 planet the size of one of the current big planets isnt much, but if you expand on the current planets too, then i could live with that. If its just one planet then no. Considering the number of planets we got at launch id say 3 planets would be fine. 2 planets not so much but i could live with that.
A bit of reshuffeling in talent trees and maybe a new skill. Its nice and it does feel like it belongs in an expansion, exept if it goes by wow standard, everyone will get new talent trees. Also those who dont buy expansion. Might not happen here, but 2 different sets of talent trees in the same game seems unlikely.
more class story would fit in an expansion. Alternatively a new class with his own story. New race is just fluff, personly i dont care. Since its only a 10$ expansion i can live without new chapters in our class story if we instead got a new class. No class story sounds too much like DLC

Also some QoL, some GTM search love, Legacy love (legacy bank ex), quicktravel to spaceship.

Some minigames would be nice, but i could live without it. Barbershop would be nice, Customisation of spaceship, even if only on the inside would be nice. The ability to ask a friendly npc to join your crew so you dont all run with the same companions. Some of this or smilar stuff thats not so much endgame but helps people not to feel like clones of eachother.

And ofc new FP and OPs. Since its cheap expansion i could live with 2 FP and 1 OP plus some upgrading of current hard modes.

And since theres more datacrons on this new planet it would be nice with a level 55 matrix relic. And give some love to the tank version relics.

To what end? Legacy is worthless post level 25 or so ... I think you mean to say in this reguard that things should be added to legacy for levels 26-50.

Realistically at the price point

At least the one large planet and maybe 1-2 flashpoints with appropriately placed flashpoint couriers.

New tiers to crafting to match the increased level (preferably trained rather then REed) so that some of the crafting feels a little more worth wild.

Maybe rewards for legacy level since some people are in the 40-50 range now there.

we only recently got a new OP but I suppose one related to the new story content would not be an unreasonable expectation.

Pazaak was something I meantioned a Long time ago, shortly after this game came out and no one knew what I was talking about, and they thought I was crazy when I mentioned racing... it seems like now WAY more people either played Kotor, or just know about how awesome they were! They were some of the most fun mini games I've played in any game.

Bioware never directly stated that Makeb was going to be free. (EDIT: Once, sure. After that they flipputy-flopped)
They did heavily imply through a number of interviews that it would represent the largest Content Patch of the game, ipsofacto, as content patches are not expansions, it was assumed RoTCH would be free.

Promise or no, Bioware set expectations and did nothing to correct them until the announcement.

Horrendous Customer Service, setting appropriate expectations is literally one of the most fundamental aspects of Business-Payee interaction. And they failed.

On to the OP:

As an Expansion I would expect a New Class Story Chapter 4 an expansion of all Companion Arcs, and the addition of at least one (1) new operation and perhaps one (1) new Flashpoint (with HM) per new planet (of which I would like to see 3).

In short, I would like to see a real expansion.

Oh, and I would also want a pre-expansion Balance Patch to be live well before launch.

I would gladly pay $20.00 for that.

I am still undecided if 1-Planet, 5-Levels, and zero-class mission or companion expansion is worth my extra money.

For me? Adding in a player list in the group finder with the desired flashpoints/operations listed (can be icons) as well as chosen role, so I can see what people are queuing for if I want to switch my role.

Adding in things like name change, legacy name change, server transfer, appearance change and a group leader summon tool to the Cartel Store would be the icing on the cake.

This I would love to see. Crafting is great level 1-49 and then at level 50 it pretty much becomes obsolete since you can't craft any of the top gear items. I'd love it if they made the new level 50-55 gear stuff that you could buy the schematics for (with daily comms or credits).

I get that gear grind is a standard in MMOs but I really wish we had the option to either 1) gear grind or 2) schematic grind so you could craft the armors/hilts/mods/enhancements for level 50+ gear just like you could craft high quality (or even BiS) gear pre-level 50.

Well, it seems like we won't get another chapter to our class stories. But if you want to know what I expect for just $10.-

2+ Flashpoints
1 Operation
(not confirmed, though it is confirmed that there will be new end-game content, we just haven't been told yet what it will be)

5 more levels (confirmed)

An additional tier to our skilltrees or an additional skill tree (additional tier is confirmed)

At least one big planet with leveling content (confirmed, including that it's sized comparable to the bigger planets we already have, so hello Taris II)

2-3 new armor models (not just retextures) for each advanced class (not confirmed)

New crafting blueprints (not confirmed)

And I think I'm already pushing my expectations FOR ONLY TEN BUCKS here. But at the same time, I think I'm pretty much spot on with my expectations as well.

Sorry to those expecting a WoW-FotLK size expansion, but that's obviously not going to happen for just $10. It's going to be somewhere between a quarter and a third the size of Fail of the Lich King, which seems perfectly right at just about a quarter of the price. And thank god we're not getting any of those bloody class overhauls.
