Seriously, there needs to be a Twi'lek only fleet and only Twi'leks should be allowed to hide the head slot. The rest of y'all are too hard to look at sometimes.
We need a subsribers-only server much more than we need a twi'lek only place, me think.

Besides... wormheads aren't good for much, they should never have left Ryloth!

Isn't hood up supposed to be like using some type of stealth mind trick invisible thing. After 6 months of hood up and wearing a masquerade party mask as a guardian, this would be such a cool thing to do.

They said it would be in the next major patch after 1.2 which would be 1.3 yet it wasn't in that and it won't be in 1.4 so i'am guessing around 5-9 months.

They managed to make the hoods disappear when the robes are worn by Twi'leks. I'm sure they can figure out how to make that into a toggle. It's just a matter of time and with F2P coming up I'm sure it's something they are working on.

I think the main thing holding it up is, this time they want to do it right.
With the Twi'leks, it just removes the hood altogether. But what they want is for the hood to appear in the down position. In order to do that they need to do new artwork for any robe that would use this feature and that's a lot of work.

That one is Light armor. For a Sentinel you could use the Aspiring Knights armor, but as a Guardian you're out of luck. Unless you want to wear Trooper armor you get a hood with nearly every option you have.

It'll come, perhaps not in 1.4 but in the sub 1.4 patches it will. So really, it would still be coming in this update just not at the launch of it.

Hood up and hood down is still in the works. Unfortunately, it requires a few changes to our art pipeline and reprocessing those assets by the artists. The team has been hard at work on our upcoming content, and priorities put hood up/down on the back burner just a bit, but it's still on the To Do list and we are still very much aware of the demand - by developers and players alike!

Great to get some sort of an answer on this. It still looks like it is a long way ahead. Why wouldn't it be possible to get at least one hood down set in the short future?

Why is this set available in character creation/character selection screen but is nowhere to be found in the game? ;/

Atris' robes are great. But how about letting players wear the robes that are already in the game but not accessible to them?

Don't let your artists' work go to waste, Bioware
