With the announcement of the new upcoming Star Wars: The old Republic expansion, it was only expected that the official forums would go nuts. So many questions needs answering, and Eric Musco is trying to keep up. Here is a rundown of all the yellow posts on the official forum:

Good catch Ninjonxb,
Subscriber Early Access to Galactic Strongholds is coming as a part of 2.8. As you can see the decision has been made to move the 2.8 date out two weeks from its original target. We wanted some more time to work on that sweet, sweet player stronghold content.

Although a feature like this would certainly be pretty awesome, it is not what “trophies” will do in your Stronghold. The video was more to imply that you can earn awesome rewards for your house by killing things

Eric or Tait can you clarify that Guild Ships and Legacy Storage will not be coming in 2.8, but rather with the free-to-play launch of the expansion?
Your are correct Oofalong. Those features will come with the official launch of the expansion, not with subscriber early access in June.

Why am I so excited right now… coffee? what coffee? I don’t see any coffee? sip
You know, on the morning of big updates like this it is a tradition that I stop in the morning and get the team stocked up on some Starbucks. We too are here to make coffee disappear (or a mocha in my case)

Or will they most likely start on Coruscant/Dromund Kaas?
At this time we aren’t talking about any additional planets aside from what we have announced, which is Coruscant, Dromund Kaas, and Nar Shaddaa.

So I take it if I stay subscribed ( which I have done ) , it seems I will receive 500 CC and then 1000 CC , so a total of 1500 CC. Can you confirm this Eric , obviously in between drinking your mocha ?
sips his mocha
Excellent question BadOrb. You are correct, if you stay a subscriber throughout, you will earn an extra 1500 coins. Note that you will get these coins in addition to your monthly subscriber allotment.

Just to answer two questions I have seen in the thread…
Why the value difference between the pre-order Nar Shaddaa Sky Palace bonus and the early access cost of the Nar Shaddaa Sky Palace?
It is actually fairly simple. The base cost of the Nar Shaddaa Sky Palace is 250k Credits. The cost of the three additional rooms is what makes up the remaining 1.25 million that is a part of the pre-order bonus.
If I already killed a boss that has a Stronghold reward (such as Karagga) will I need to kill him again to get the reward?
Although this is a great question we are not quite ready to talk details on the various methods of item unlocks, etc. We will have a blog in the future that outlines more about how the system works and how it will affect previously cleared content.
