Star Wars: The Old Republic 1.3 Legacy Details are OutBy: Lushy posted at Jun 23, 2012 4:24 pm
The updated details for the Legacy System in Star Wars: The Old Republic have been published here. The new additions will bring in several features that are for individual characters, instead of being Legacy-wide. While I applaud the expansion to the system, I was also sad to see how many excellent features that will be added are going to be restricted to a single character.
On the plus side, this does stop someone who is ridiculously good at making credits into purchasing all of the perks in one swoop and having 8 characters who level to max in a matter of days. On the other hand, I'm hoping that some of the perks, such as the Field Respecialization Droid, will be eventually moved to Legacy-wide. Considering that the Repair Droid on your ship is a Legacy-wide unlock, they should have some sort of trend here involving summoning helpful robots. It worked for Luke Skywalker after all, right?
The traveling perks are also definitely interesting. Sort of. Why someone would pick Dromund Kaas or Corusant as a teleportation landmark, I hope to find out. Outside of the Legacy vendor, there isn't much else there for higher levels and if you've seen the Birthright armor then you should be laughing about that too. Hopefully they plan on adding more to the starter planets then just more crappy unslotted novice gear. Don't get me wrong, the purchasable slotted gear is great, but who seriously approved of the birthright loot? Honestly.
I have hopes that they are going to eventually add heroics and dailies somewhere in these areas, as they did with the Black Hole (which will also be another quick travel point you can buy). However, neither Belsavis or Ilum will be available for a quick travel purchase. The lack of sense in some of these decisions disturbs me.
SWTOR still has a lot of growing up to do and I look forward to future patches. Crossing my fingers they add more places to access daily PVP quests, Skill resets and Legacy vendors who will start holding fun items like exclusive pets, skins, or mounts. Having max levels on both the Republic and Empire sides, I see a world that is dying to be opened up and explored more. The stories already intertwine on both sides, making it appealing to play at least one complete story on each faction. Crossing my fingers that 1.3 will bring in a in order to make future patches possible.
