Strongholds are legacy wide purchasable personal residences for players to customize and decorate. They were introduced with the Galactic Strongholds expansion. Strongholds are divided between personal and guild strongholds. Guilds get access to a flagship and a headquarters stronghold. Personal and guild strongholds can both be managed from the Stronghold Management Window.
If you deactivate your stronghold, all decorations inside the deactivated stronghold will automatically be moved into the decorations list to be made available somewhere else, but otherwise it will remain the same. When purchased with credits, reactivation costs the same amount as the purchase price; when purchased with Cartel Coins, reactivation is free.
List of strongholds
There are nine strongholds available for purchase, two faction specific and seven on neutral planets. The faction specific strongholds can be traveled to by characters of an enemy faction, but require a smuggler's fee.

Customizing and decorating
To start placing decorations, click the button on the toolbar to enter EDIT MODE. While in Edit Mode, right-click a hook layout to pop up the hook editor.
The hook editor window will display a complete list of decorations that will fit into the selected hook. The list can be filtered by category and subcategory. Decorations will often fit into multiple hook types. Eligible hooks are displayed in the decoration's tooltip.
Once the desired decoration has been selected, click the PLACE button to insert it into the hook. It can then be nudged and rotated within the hook using the sliders that appear.
Decorations can usually be modified by clicking the LAYOUTS button and selecting a different set of hooks. Different layouts can be previewed by selecting them. Clicking APPLY LAYOUT will confirm the change and automatically pick up any decorations placed in the associated hooks.
Players will earn prestige for their legacy with each new decoration unlocked in their personal collection. As decorations are placed, the stronghold completion percentage will increase. A stronghold's prestige value is determined by its completion percentage multiplied by the legacy's prestige. Prestige is used to rank strongholds on the Public Listings.
Players can also unlock stronghold labels, which allow them to set a different name for their stronghold in the Stronghold Management Window. They can also select a different character in their legacy to be the official owner.
