Bioware is making it hard to respect them as a developer anymore... I really am starting to despise how they do things. How long have Jedi Knight's been asking for a hood down robe, and now they make us pay real money for it and not only that, but it is just about pure chance to get it... Very bad move Bioware and very greedy.
If you're subbed you get like 1500 cartel coins "free" and 150 every month you continue to sub. What does it matter if you have to get it off the market? You're getting a return on your first year's investment.
