Earlier today, Senior Game Designer William Wallace detailed some of the upcoming legacy perks unlocked in Game Update 1.3 in a community blog post. In it, he breaks down the Character Perks into four types of unlocks including Advancement Perks, Travel Perks, Companion Perks and Convenience Perks. Along with that, William offers clarity on how these Character Perks differ from the Legacy Unlocks already available:

As Character Perks apply only to a single character, their credit costs are significantly lower than most Global Unlocks. Some Character Perks are also restricted by Legacy level and character level in addition to having a credit cost.
