Reading up on the Guild summit forum for things I missed....apparently someone saw a Sith Warrior using flamethrower, talk about cross skills. Hmm...interesting, must be a part of the legacy system

As I tweeted them earlier, they need to up the pace. One content patch in 3 months sub is unacceptable.

In 1.2: New Operation - Explosive Conflict, new Warzone - Novare Coast, new Flashpoint - Lost Island, Legacy family trees, Legacy racial unlocks, UI customization, Improved char textures, Appearance customizations, new Corellia dailies, new pets, Guild banks, new gear, ranked PvP, crafting overhaul and much more.

It's no wonder it's taking a while, hopefully they'll learn from this though and split this amount of content over 2 patches in the future. This is going to be one of the biggest patches I've ever seen in an MMO though.

More info about the Legacy abilities...taken from http://uk.pc.ign.com/articles/121/1219843p1.html

Other Legacy unlocks will not be available until you've leveled a class to 50, however. Such is the case with unlocking new skills. Do you wish your Bounty Hunter could shoot Force lightning? After 1.2, if you relate the Bounty Hunter to a level 50 Inquisitor, it'll be possible, though with some significant limitations.

A Bounty Hunter won't suddenly turn into a Force-wielding super user. Every class has a heroic moment ability which requires the presence of a companion to activate. Only by using these heroic moment abilities will you be able to access the cross-class Legacy abilities. That essentially means you can only use the abilities out in the questing world; they're locked out when you're in a full group or in a PvP Warzone. "It's a balancing mechanism. We wanted to make the abilities powerful and useful but we know that some players are going to eventually have all seven others on one character. We had to be cognizant of that when we were creating them so we don't give the player seven super-powerful abilities he can use in rapid succession."

nice, looks like they are planning to allow 8 man pre-made groups for warzones, didn't see a timeframe for it though.
