Many have debated how the Legacy family tree arrangement would impact their Legacy benefits. William Wallace, a senior game designer at Bioware, has cleared up all the debate. As he explains in his post, the arrangement of your Legacy characters has no positive or negative impact.
More from William Wallace after the Jump…
“The family tree is just a fun visualization of the relationships between your characters – we don’t want you to ever have to “respec” your family to get the unlocks you want, or for guilds to require you to have a certain family arrangement in order to pick up the right rewards.” – William Wallace, Bioware
So make your Trooper your son or have him be a rival as long as he is in your Legacy the benefits will apply. Once again Bioware is allowing you to play the game however you want to and allow it to be your story. Perhaps this just might help bring out the hidden role player in us all.
Is this a good way to handle the Family tree arrangement? We would love to hear your opinions.
