Legacy arrives today

Today marks the release of Star Wars: The Old Republic's 1.2 patch, or Legacy.  I have to say, I am pretty excited about it.  Although, there is no real reason I should be.  While this patch includes a ton of stuff, none of it really provides me any immediate benefit.  You can check out the patch notes here.

Right now I have 2 characters.  A level 32 Commando who just finished Chapter One and a level 18 Jedi Knight.  That puts me at a Legacy level of.... one.  So I don't think much is being added to the legacy system for me quite yet.  It is still my favorite part of the patch though because I know I will benefit from it eventually.

I don't really have an interest in the new Flashpoint or Operation, so I could take or leave them.  I should be interested in the new warzone, but I still don't find myself PvPing all that much in SWTOR.  I'm sure I'll try it out on my Commando though.

It turns out that Ranked Warzones were pulled from the 1.2 patch at the last minute.  Since I don't have a 50, it doesn't bother me but it sure looked like an interesting feature.  Let's hope they get it in the game within a few weeks.  I'm sure a lot of PvPers are bummed.

There is also the UI editor and crafting improvements which should be pretty neat.  Since I am slow playing SWTOR, these kind of updates do make me very happy.  I love to see the game grow around me, instead of just ahead or behind me.
