Right. Didn't think about that . Now that you mention it, the gloves changed too. Honestly, Helmet, gloves and boots are about the only thing I really liked about it. Have the whole set on my 'Sin, but was toying with getting rid of the chest and skirt for my old look.
I was using Trailblazer boots for a sleek, simple look, along with most of the Spymaster set. They now have rockets stuck on the side. This makes my sleek jedi warrior cry.
EDIT - oh, and re staying on topic, sorry if I have derailed anything; I have been encouraging anyone unhappy with any of the appearance changes (like mine is with Trailblazer as well as Phantom and Spymaster) to come and chat here rather than stay scattered over four or five smaller threads.
