Can you turn off your Legacy Surname

I was just curious on the legacy name because it constantly reminds you to create one after your able to. But I am not much of an RPer and just quickly threw a name on so the darn thing would stop popping up every time I look at my talents or log on. So I just used my last name so I could move on in hopes that I could just turn it off. If anyone knows let me know.

If you hide it do you still get legacy experience?

I hate to say it but I too am unable to turn OFF the legacy name. I chose one so it would stop prompting me although I really didn't want to have one.

The game help file refers to preferences/social but there isn't an option there to turn it off.

Perhaps they could update the help file to be correct and say ' there isn't an option to turn it off' OR actually put the option where they say its supposed to be.

I can't wait to see this in one of the game updates.

It's in the Title/Name tag area on the character screen. At least it was when I first input mine...

Open up your character page where the drop down menu is for titles like Black Bisector etc. At the bottom of the drop down menu that shows up when you hit your title choice menu will be the legacy change options. They moved it from the preferences to there in some recent patch.

Yeah, open up your Character Screen (C), click the icon to the left of your name and go to the drop down menu at the bottom of the screen that pops up. That should do it!

the question I have is... why wouldn't you want to have a legacy. I understand not wanting to display a name, but the perks that come with having your legacy unlocked are pretty nice, so why not want them
