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.

Seconded, think I found a pair of those cheap, but credits are credits, you can't get the whole look otherwise.

  • The Spymaster and the Phantom outfits were both adjusted to look more like their advertised appearance in the Cartel Market, after we received more than a few remarks about this dissimilarity. This is to ensure that customers receive the advertised appearance.
  • The Stylish Dancer Outfit (white) is in the Blockade Runner pack, but it was mistakenly used on the Skip Tracer pack art. The Fancy Reveler Outfit is red and included in the Skip Tracer pack. The artwork for the Skip Tracer pack will be updated to show the appropriate outfit in a future patch.
We apologize for any inconvenience. In the future, we will ensure that all assets are in alignment on the Cartel Market. The final products are meant to look like the advertised art.
As far as I'm concerned the advertised appearance was what I saw when I used YOUR preview function!

Oh well, lesson learned.

^Definitely this. What, do you have 12 y.o. boys doing the models?

When people were asking for the fix, where were the people who didn't want it to change? No where. I like the new look like I said. More so than just a bland chest piece. I like the shoulders that were added (not so sure about the life preserver yet). But that is just my opinion.
No reason to come to the forums if one likes the looks of these sets.

Or another idea i thought of would be to keep the sets the same they were before, just add an updated set to the cartel pack, one with the old version, and one with the new version

Thats because everyone pretty much accepted that they will *never* fix these bugs.

I'm quite displeased with the head-clipping-through-hood bug which has been around since 1.2 (that's the legacy patch right?) and was also annoyed by the speeder sound bug which they just finally fixed a content patch ago, but this isn't really the thread for complaining about that... This thread is, quite spesifically, about the Phantom and Spymaster sets. Beta bug whines belong in beta bug whine threads, this is gear whine thread.

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.

I second that - new looks are UGLY! And an explanation from Joveth sounds so riddiculous that I want to scream!!
I've decided to invest time and money into both this sets BECAUSE of their look on character and NOT cause some stupid advert on Cartel Market!!!

Some of us are FAITHFUL customers paying REAL money for your incompetence. If you doubt it please check my CC's purchasing log.....now after such stupidity you failed my trust .....
