I airquote need because I don't actually feel any especially pressing need to hit the level cap. I already have all five companion legacy unlocks (3 are maxed for extra crafting bonuses and the other two are close). With the class story complete, I have my legacy ability unlocked. I hit legacy level 5 and paid for the human racial legacy bonus because it is a decent bonus to solo play but I'd rather give up half a million credits than wait out 50 levels as a human to obtain it. The one bonus I would obtain for getting this character to 50 is the racial unlock for Cyborgs, which opens up the race for all classes. However, I don't really plan on doing another Cyborg in the near future.
As a solo player, the biggest argument I have for sticking it out on this character is probably that it's easier to earn credits at higher level, which can be used to pay for gifts for companions on my new alts. Somehow, this seems less pressing than experiencing a whole new story - or seven.
