Since sharing my thoughts on how I chose legacy perks for my next SWTOR alt, I’ve heard a lot of folks talk about the lack of customization available for their characters, and complaints that there wasn’t anything “good to buy” in the new crop of Legacy character perks. To that I say: Baloney! There are perks for altaholics and end game only focused players alike. And to that end, I’ve grouped them together to make it easier to see the playtime customization available to you through their purchase.

PURCHASE: Field Respecialization
CRAFTING MIN/MAXERS and ROMANCE ADDICTS
- I wish more of my max level items critted to include an augment
PURCHASE: Legacy of Crafting

PURCHASE: Legacy of Persuasion

What perks have you ended up purchasing?
I always start with the speeder perk. As soon as I get my Kurtob Alliance it will be really awesome! The rest of my alts will be able to have Rank 3 speed at level 10!
I am still bummed my prior refer a friends did not net me the freebie speeder– I’ll have to buy my alts the perk and a bike. But it seems well worth it, thinking about a certain HUGE planet with much running back and forth past rakghouls…
I thought previous referrals counted??? I’ve seen people on the fleet with them, and the only way they could have gotten them is if their friends have completed their 30 days and paid for month…
I clearly did not do it properly (or my referees didn’t do it properly) as I have referred 2 peeps whom I know played for months, yet I never got a speeder.
Actually the Kurtob is level 25, but that’s still pretty sweet!
Yeah, but the above comments refers to Legacy Perk unlocks – Rank 1 Speeder Piloting at Level 10. This is why people are so excited about the Kurtob; you can have effectively a Rank 3 speeder from the moment you hit level 10 (leave your origin world).

I usually avoid the increased XP simply because I feel like I level fast enough as is. Sometimes I may miss most of a planet. The speeder and companion conversations are the two I buy.
So far the speeder perk is my favourite. I have yet to try out warzones so depending on how those go for me, the warzone perk might be next on the list. I’m currently saving up for a lot of the ship perks and the deployable repair droid and such. 🙂
I wish my legacy was high enough to max out some of the perks…downside of my 3 legacy server is split efforts. Nice that the speeder peek is pretty attainable for folks.
For every new alt I create, I automatically buy the “Improved Fp XP”, “Improved Class Xp”, “Legacy of Leadership” and “Improved Speeder Piloting I”. My reasons are quite simple: I mostly team for flashpoints, I travel to planets usually only for the class quests, a 5s trash items selling time is too amazing and I’m about to get my hands on that Kurtob Alliance Speeder. 😀

I get laughed at for not even having reached level50 yet ive been subbed since launch… 😉
I am looking forward to some of the Legacy Perks though, number 1 being the Speeder Perk and since im an altoholic probably also all the XP enhancers.
What im most looking forward though is the Race unlock so i can expand my Chiss family and finally create my BH’s Smuggler and Jedi Knight relatives 🙂

The first rank of speeders is probably the biggest impact, it’s a very small added premium for mount access fifteen levels early.
Leadership is under-rated, especially for players without a lot of alts – I use the vending thing for convenience in inventory management, even at the default cooldown.
As to Persuasion and Altruism, buyer beware – because each individual character can only earn so much affection and each point of affection has a credit value (i.e. cost of gifts to purchase it), you can pay more for these perks than you “save”.
