Patch 1.2...It's Coming.

Aiden Flux / Mar 15, 2012
1. Completing Act Two (around level 40) on any class will unlock a class-specific emote that corresponds with your root class. (i.e., Snipers and Operatives unlock a “/agent” emote.)

2. Completing Act Three (at max-level) as an Empire class unlocks the following abilities for everyone in your legacy: Flamethrower (Bounty Hunter), Lightning Storm (Sith Inquisitor), Force Choke (Sith Warrior), Orbital Strike (Imperial Agent). For Republic classes: Project (Jedi Consular), Force Sweep (Jedi Knight), Sticky Grenade (Republic Trooper), Dirty Kick (Smuggler). If you can collect all of these, you will ascend to god-status...just kidding. (Note: These are not useable in PvP, only while questing with a companion AND only while using Heroic Moment.)

3. Maxing out affection with all five companion types will net each of your characters a total of +50 boost to their Presence stat, a 5-minute reduction on the cooldown for the super-powerful Heroic Moment ability, and a 1-minute addition to the duration of the buff that Heroic Moment gives you.

4. To purchase a race, which unlocks it for all class types without having to level a character of that race to 50 first, will cost you 1.5 million credits for each race. In addition, you must be legacy level 8 to buy it.

5. All the unlocks for increasing your social rank are emotes. The best emote is /doublelasers (costs 150k and requires level 15 Legacy). The weirdest is /weld (costs 50k and requires level 12 Legacy).

6. There are a total of 4 unarmed abilities able to be unlocked by hitting high Valor ranks through PvP. These will be perfect for brawling in cantinas to show that loud-mouthed Rodian who’s boss, but doesn’t look like a full replacement for weapon skills. Each skill can alternatively be purchased for 10-25k each, and require a Legacy level between 5-15, depending on the specific skill.


Where'd we get this info from? Is it released to GMs only? :O

Jedi Chiss here I come! ^_^
Aiden Flux
Nope! It's been released to a few people, but getting your hands on the Public Test Server really helps.
Oh, you play on the test server, Aiden?
Aiden Flux
Yeah it's part of the things that have made me come on less often. xD
So just to see if I'm reading it right. If I level an Agent to 50 I can give Ehlina Orbital strike?
Correct Calthan. But it can only be used while your Heroic Moment ability is active (which requires a companion out with you), which limits it to duels, solo play, and small group activities.
Cool. I think a trooper having access to a "Nuke em from orbit" makes sense.
Aiden Flux
That does sound badass :D
Yeah, want to level an agent just ot unlock that for Ararius/Ara'rius... a Sith Warrior too (passive companions for epic duel abilities!! :D )).
