http://www.swtor-spy.com/item-single...rs_Robe/32608/ - this is the one from the launcher picture

http://cdn-www.swtor.com/sites/all/f...ld_854x480.jpg - that's how the whole set looks like. Look up the rest of the icons.

And this is where it drops from:

Do you think it's a good move?!

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.

They could have just added a armor like this long ago, it is just greedy that they add a armor like this now on the cartel store and only in the darn cartel pack drops. Which means they may be very hard to get, who knows what kind of price they will go for on the marketplace, probably very high because of the demand.

That's baseless speculation.

They're a company. They need to make a profit, that isn't greed, that's business.

HOOD DOWN function was PROMISED to arrive this year! After 1.2! Now the only Jedi robe with a hood down will be in the cartel pack AND considering the amount of random rubbish they contain we won't even get our hands on them by spending the bonus coins we've got . The monthly grant is only enough to buy yourself one better cartel pack. This is ridiculous that the only hood down robe is available in such form. I'd gladly buy it if it was sold like the destroyer set but it's not.

This is what we get after a year of subbing and supporting the game? The only hood down robe won't even be available to most of us without spending lots of real money?

Baseless speculation? Check out the source i provided. It is found ONLY in the cartel pack. And considering how much a JEDI robe with a hood down was demanded they will be very expensive credit-wise to get. They might be as common as dancer tops but everyone will want to get those.

I think it's a great move...if all you can think about is a hood on a robe...put your money where your mouth is...pony up the points and buy it.

Otherwise don't buy it...keep complaining...and see what happens. Who cares?

Already paid since December and I was promised a hood down function months ago. And I can't even directly buy that robe. I would buy it but I can't. I can buy cartel packs but the the chance to actually find what you desire is minimal.

Business is not making an item that you are well-aware consumers want and was promised to consumers earlier in the year as a GENERAL FEATURE and putting it only in your gamble packs.

It is greed. Anybody who manages to get this from a pack could easily make 3-4 mill + from selling it.
