A Legacy Surname? What was this? I had no idea what I was being asked to do, so I quickly opened up my internet browser and starting reading. It turns out that this is a name added to your character that provides him or her with a last name or a "title" that reads "The *insert name*
I'm not sure how I feel about this feature. On the one hand, this provides a bit of continuity and ownership for all of my characters. Anyone who sees my legacy tag will know this character is part of my cadre. If I'm establishing a good reputation as a competent player then others will see my tag and know that they can expect the same competent play regardless of which character I'm playing.
On the other hand, I'm supposed to pick a "family" name to apply to all of my very disparate characters. I'm not sure how I could ever pick a single name that would apply equally well to my Rattaki Sith Assassin and my Chiss Sniper, or to my "Darth Maul type" (can't remember the name of the race) Sith Juggernaut and my Human Jedi Sage. This was a dilemma that I wasn't sure I could overcome. Seriously, there were a few moments last night where I was considering quiting the game altogether since I couldn't come up with a fitting last name.
It was at this point that I realized you can choose to display this Legacy as an additional title "the *insert name*
What do you guys think about the Legacy system?
