I know, it's weird that they're posting information about a MMO here. They must be getting paid to do it from BIOWARE.

/sarcasm

But seriously, there's still a lot of people that play this game and enjoy it. I'm loving this influx of information.

@Wic I bet its ok for it to be full of GW2 stuff amirite? Don't see people raging about GW2 news overload yet when there is more then one SWTOR post people claim massively is being paid off.

Maybe SWTOR posts genarate alot of traffic for the site and maybe there was just alot of news coming from SWTOR today.

Gee, I wonder if it's because SW:TOR has a big patch imminent that a whole lot of detail is just coming together on? Nah, couldn't be!

Weird, I got to level 33 before I cancelled my subscription - but I never went to Alderaan.

It's different for your playstyle. Some people just follow class quests and others do some PvP and Flashpoints.

Heck, I didn't get my Legacy name until I was level 38 !

Ship customisation is good.... (or it would be if they had done space combat properly) but it is retarded that Legacy upgrades is the only way to get Mail / Bank access on your ship!

In a galaxy far , far away - they invented faster than light space travel - but they couldn't work out how to install an email client on a spaceship. Right...

A pathetic attempt at creating population hotspots.

If you look at the DarthHater writeup, you can buy most of the legacy perks(besides the legacy abilities) for credits if you, say, are an altaholic with many characters who happen to be below the end of Act 1. So you can buy these for credits. That's probably why you were downvoted. But there is bright news for you in the meantime, being able to buy the mailbox and stuff instead!

In the same boat actually. I have a human smuggler I am nearing end-cap (but doing class quests now) but I have two other human classes...and a Cyborg class.

That's one of my beefs with the Legacy System. I heard that there is a way to unlock some of these things with "Points" or "Legacy Points" but not sure how those enter into it; are such things gainable in-game or you buy them from a cash shop?

Too many people roll Humans when they have such cool options to be other races. I personally like the Zabrak race myself. My Trooper is one, my Smuggler is a Cybord, my Operative is a Chiss.

If I had access to a Trandoshien or a....member of Ackbar's race, i would SO be there!

I do like the Chiss, but held off on it. I had story ideas with my others. And the common, "I want "me" in there. Or "I want my old character from PnP RPG/Playground/wherever". I do have a low-level Sith and Sithy Zabrak on there. Not into Twi'leks as much or Rattakis. but like them more than the..."blind folks" with cookies pasted to their eyeless faces. ;p

Pretty much; I must admit now that I was rather dissapointed to find that all the playable races were "human or close to", rather then a broad range of diversity like SWG had.

In the end, I found that almost every character I rolled was a Human or cyborg. So I'm a wee screwed for that legacy too

All races are human in the SW universe. A Twi'lek is a human with tentacles on its head. A Zabrak is a human with horns on its head. A Wookie is a tall human with a lot of hair. A Hutt is a greedy human that looks like a giant slug. In the end, they all behave in ways that are undeniably human, or non-alien, rather, even if they look different. That's not to say that all science fiction aliens are human, but that there is very little reason to choose one of the SW 'alien' races over human unless you just want to "look cool," which, if you were to ask me, kind of diminishes the experience. I always choose human. Call me biased.

I would say there's a difference between being human and being humanoid. Yes, most races in SW fall into the category of humanoid, ie: upright bipedal with two arms, two legs and a head. But all the playable races in SWTOR are very human with very superficial features, ie: a few facial horns, blus skin, tattoos, implants, etc. Basically, they literally use the exact same human body with a different head, which is a very lazy approach. The only props I give Bioware is the Twi'lek who have a very different head model, but even there they chose the easy way out by not modelling unique head armor for the Twi'leks.

If Bioware were to incluse other playable races such as Wookiees, Jawas, Kaminoans, etc, they would have to create completely new models to animate, which seems more work than Bioware is willing to dedicate.

The legacy system excites me the most about this update, all the other features are cool too, but I've wanted real information on Legacy for a long time, now. Since before launch when they first spoke about it! I'm a huge fan of the Chiss species, so I'll definitely be making my Chiss Inquisitor and SW now. :D
