No clue...looks like about 200 coins per month right now, but I have no clue how much a bar will cost. I plan on getting to 6 bars even if I have to get out a credit card to buy more coins. I will have around 1750 at launch of F2P.

Subject to change because they are still figuring all this out, but 250 per character or 540 for the entire account.

Cartel Coins

$4.99 - 450 coins
$9.99 - 1000 coins - 100 bonus
$14.99 - 1600 coins - 250 bonus
$19.99 - 2200 coins - 400 bonus
$39.99 - 5500 coins - 1500 bonus

Thanks to Dulfy and LordArtemis http://www.swtor.com/community/showthread.php?t=552743

$9.99 does not sound like too much for the extra bars to me.

And thats permanent across all toons on the account? not just one side or the other?

Btw, that list is something they should put up on the website somewhere.

All this bar talk confused me until I read it was quickslot bars on the previous page.

Didn't seem too bad with one bar in the lvl 15 trial, only going to 2 at the very end of it. Maybe later that may be different though, but with so many useless abilities, I wonder.

Anyways, I definitely wont be paying just to access a quickslot bar, heh. Especially moddable as the HUD is I expect a mod for that anyway if it really becomes bothersome... silly limitations.

Well, I ended up subbing yesterday so I can take advantage of the preffered player treatment. Not sure how that's gonna work, but I bet Im gonna end up paying more than if I had just waited and bought the extra stuff when its available lol but oh well

Am I reading that chart right? Even as as subscriber, I'll have to use Cartel coins, not the normal in-game credits, to unlock any further legacy abilities?

That kind of sucks.

You can use cartel coins OR regular credits to buy legacy stuff... you have a choice.

The cartel coin option for legacy items makes some things a lot more affordable than before... for example, the rocket boost and its upgrades are all a lot more reachable for a lot of people who use cartel coins to buy them instead of MILLIONS of credits.

It is just some rocket boots that give you a little speed for those areas where you can not use a speeder.

Great for toons that do not have any speed boost abilities like force speed.

I think mine was closer to 25, but yeah, it's still a bit.

Its around 27 GB, pretty large game. Especially since it was in production for about 5 or 6 Years [Don't know exactly].


Once MrObiWan
