In recent patches, we’ve seen some much-needed changes to SWTOR’s Legacy perks, but one thing we haven’t seen is any new rewards or perks for players who have reached the higher Legacy levels. Quite a few players are above Legacy level 25 now, with many sitting at level 50. Yet, there aren’t any special rewards for the levels above 25, which has been a disappointment to many fans.
In one community forum thread, this subject was brought up, and Joveth Gonzalez said the following:

Hello! So I spoke to Principle Lead Systems Designer Damion Schubert about this, and he feels that with some of the Legacy rebalancing that has occurred recently, he definitely agrees that there is a need for more rewards for players with Legacy levels 25 and higher. The team hasn’t made any decisions yet, but it is something that they are exploring.
The word “exploring” is admittedly a little less encouraging than the usual Soon™, but at least it’s knowledge that the team is working on some type of reward.
Within the same thread, players also took the time to suggest a few rewards and perks they’d like to see for Legacy levels above level 25. Here’s one idea:
Every time you ding a new Legacy Level, you get some more Legacy Credits:
LL1-10 = 25k Legacy Credits p/ level
LL11-20 = 50k Legacy Credits p/ level
LL21-30 = 75k Legacy Credits p/ level
LL31-40 = 100k Legacy Credits p/ level
LL41-50 = 150k Legacy Credits p/ level
This money can only be spent on Legacy Unlocks, and is a one time thing across all characters. So if you spend it all on Global Unlocks, you get it for all characters, and if you disperse it around Character unlocks, only those characters get it.
So in total, you would have 4,000,000 Credits to spend across all characters on your Legacy for Unlocks.
This is actually a rather nice idea, similar to one outlined in another thread. Gaining Legacy levels, ironically enough, isn’t that difficult, but some of the best perks also have that rather large credit sink attachment, which doesn’t make a whole lot of sense. It would be nice to see some way to reduce the costs of those perks, or the addition of perks without an additional considerable credit cost.
