I don't post here much but I think I either found a bug, an oversight, or something of that nature.
purchased a Caitian BOFF from my Fed VA account and, like the Borg BOFF, expected it to be account bound. However, logging into my other Fed characters- all of them don't allow me to get the Caitian BOFF "free".
I tried claiming through in game C-Store, requisition officer, and got nothing.
Is this intended? If so, then why is it not listed in the purchase description on either the Web C-Store or the in-game C-Store?
You only get one instance of the Caitian or Aenar boff per purchase. Once you turn in the requisition and claim the officer, you can trade it or give it away as you please. Conversely, you can have more than one Caitian or Aenar boff in a given toon's bridge crew. It's not an account-wide purchase unlock like some items are.
Just looked at the C-Store here on the web, and it is indeed confusing. It quite clearly states This item will be unlocked for every character on your account.
This suggests that every character on the account can claim a BOFF from a single purchase. What I assume they mean is that any character on the account can claim the requisition. Thus, a single character gets a single BOFF.
This is how it used to work, prior to Season 5. Has it changed?
