There are two different possibilities in how speeders and pets will be shown in strongholds.
Possiblity A) Speeder/Pet Slots in Strongholds
You will have a number of “slots” to choose from for both speeders and pets, for example choosing your top three favorite speeders to put in your stronghold.
Market Speculation: If you can place 2-3 pets/mounts in your house, prices may go up a bit as people search for mounts/pets they like the visual look of to buy, even if they have a “normal” speeder they use all the time and wouldn’t normally buy another speeder. People may also start buying speeders just to have a few choices to choose from.
Possiblity B) Display ALL pets/speeders owned
You will be able to display any and all pets/speeders you own. This is unlikely due to the fact that it is possible to get hundreds of pets and types of speeders!
Market Speculation: If you can place ALL your pets/mounts at once, prices are going to skyrocket as collectors try to “catch em all” now that there’s a way to actually show off a collection.
Prepare Your Speeder Collection
There are quite a few speeders which can only be collected from Operations and Reputation, while others can be bought for pure credits from vendors, the rest coming from various Cartel Packs and the Cartel Market. Here are some you should start working on now as you won’t be able to simply buy them later!
Market Speculation: Prices of Cartel Packs are going to go up as people try to get those rare mounts/speeders to display in their Strongholds!
- Aratech speeders from quests picked up on the fleet
- Various speeders dropped only from operations
- Various speeders only dropped from Flashpoints
- GSI Speeders from digging
- Galactic Reputation Speeders
Prepare Your Pet Collection
Many of the SWTOR pets are simply gained from Cartel packs, but there are a few unique ones you can gain in game. There are also lots of pets from Cartel Coin cards sold by businesses, pets from past events, and pets from reoccurring events that are not currently active.
Market Speculation: Prices of Cartel Packs are going to go up as people try to get those rare pets to display in their Strongholds!
