First I'd like to say I tried to post to the SWTOR website forums about this and was unable to.

But yes, if I delete one of my characters that I have purchased several character-specific things for with Cartel Coins, will they transfer to a new character?

 I don't see why they would.

You will lose the character specific stuff the same as if you bought it with credits

 

You will keep server wide, legacy wide or account wide unlocks.

 

Character perks are all character specific.

 

Hope this helps.

Thank you everyone, I suppose the answer was obvious, I simply don't want to accept it :P

They need to allow name-changing...

You have to buy the forum unlock to ask for help on the official forums for the other money you just already spent with them in the cartel shop.

It's 15/month for forum posting rights unlock.

Well that is incredibly stupid. Buy forum rights? MMORPG.com has just gained my business indefinitely.

Its obvious why they would not let just anyone post on their forums.  What other game allows trolls to come on and bash all day long, thats what mmorpg.com is for.

The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over while expecting different results.

First off if you spend cartell coins on a character specific unlock then delete that character your out of luck. You cant get back what you purchased on a deleted character. Now any cartell coins still unspent will remain in your account.

They dont let paying customers post on their forums. I don't know any other game that does that.

If something goes wrong with your PAID cartel purchase you cannot ask for help on the forums.

They also made their customer support number no longer a toll free number.

They even manage to try and nickel and dime you that way also now.

Not true...lotro has limited reading/posting on their forums...I do agree they should have a better way to support f2pers, but they should not be allowed to post on the forums.

You can always submit a ticket via the webform or email regarding CC purchases....They do support those (Coin issues) for all players.

What? No trolling. I acknowledge LucasArts is doing it wrong. I won't buy (literally) into their forum nonsense, I will use MMORPG.com from now on.
