With the upcoming game update to Star Wars the old Republic – Galactic Strongholds, BioWare will be introducing new legacy storage. Eric Musco took some time yesterday, updating the community on the official SWTOR forums on what to expect: here is a C/P:
I know there are a few questions surrounding Legacy storage and although I can’t answer everything here are some of the bigger answers:
How do I get Legacy storage?
You will get Legacy storage for free with the completion of the “Introduction to Strongholds Mission” upon acquiring your first Stronghold. Legacy storage will also be craftable and is possible to appear on the Cartel Market. (In both cases this means it would be available on the GTN for credits as well)
If I add another Legacy storage to my Stronghold, does this add more storage space? It does not. Adding more Legacy storage “units” will simply add another access point, similar to how the cargo hold works right now. You can increase the size by adding more bays (more in the next answer).
How big will it be?
Legacy storage comes, by default, with one bay unlocked. That bay will have 80 slots in it. You will be able to purchase additional bays with credits or Cartel Coins.
Can I transfer Bind on Pickup (BoP) items through my Legacy Storage?
This is still being worked on/decided in development. We should have an answer on this soon™.
I hope that answers most of the bigger questions you have.
Glad we got news on this but I have to ask. What is the point of crafting or selling legacy storage if everyone gets one by completing the introduction quest? Also why is this still in the design phase. At this point I think that the only thing that will be released in 2.9 is strongholds. Everything else (guild flagships, guild strongholds, planet conquests) will be pushed back to the next expansion.
