What Oggthebase wrote... I wore a cape for months on my healer for the set bonus (thank the maker for campaign armoring), I ripped mods and armoring from black hole gear and put in my rakata and then ripped more mods and enhancements to fix that gear. On my dps, I blew off the second set bonus, until campaign armoring, to look good. It just wasn’t that big a deal. Now I wear what I want and still have the set bonuses. Which on my female dps shadow is the BH top with campaign armoring for the set bonuses.
The second bonus on my healer wasn't that big a deal either, but in that role I like every advatage I can get. Even if it meant wearing a cape for months.
