Can We Make CM Crystals Bind to Legacy?

So...I just switched out master crystals with crit. And the set in my bank happened to be yellow/orange CM crystals. I put in my guns. play a few matches. Then I put all the gear in the legacy bank to play on another toon and WHAM! gun won't go into bank b/c the CM crystal is bound to character.

I mean...really here. this is ridiculously petty. I don't even give a **** about CM gear. I need a crit crystal, and I don't have any lying around that aren't CM. why are we doing this? do we really have to remove and replace crystals every time we pass guns now that EVERY thing is legacy. this feel ridculously petty and, more important (to me) TIME CONSUMING and a reason NOT to use or buy CM crystals.

Unlock the Crystal Accountwide in Collections and you will be able to put the weapon with the equipped crystal into your Legacy bank.

They already are if you open them up in your collections.

You need to do an additional microtransaction for your microtransaction because... EA.

Seven hours of paying to win in SWTOR can double a subscriber's monthly cost. Detailed figures available on request.

Why don't you just get another pair of pistols rather than doing all this switching between characters?

In fact, why not treat your alts to their own set of gear?

why have legacy gear?

because I have two sets of the best weapons in the game (furious s2 rated) and 26 "alts" to share them with.

You also need to pay for a subscription in order to post on these forums. Considering that you see yourself as a Social Justice Advocate whose only purpose here seems to be singling out shady monetary practices by EA for this game, I can't help but chuckle at the fact that you are basically paying them to do so.

Hmm, one time "fee" to be able to claim the item as many times as I like for every character I ever make? Sign me up. It sure beats having to buy the item every time at full price, as other games do. The problem with "but everything's not free" is that, once you have the fee covered, it is free. It's free for the next 2, or 200 characters you decide you may want to use it on.

If your "freebies" were in a weapon you sold to a vendor or destroyed, they would have been active in your collections on that character. In other words, you can claim copies of that item on that character without purchasing the extra account unlock. The same is true for regular cartel market crystals. As long as you have them bound to a character, copies are available on that character.
