Purchasing 24 packs of stuff you know to be rubbish is odd behaviour.

Doable solution with some existing armor examples:

A DREAM would be a vest similar to Relnex's one, the sand-colored bit. No overcoat. Just sand-colored vest but with long sleeves like on Ragnos' set. Then the pants: not skin tight but more like those from Sion's set which look fairly loose and really nice. The pants should also have extra bit of clothing to appear under the waist, a "skirt" (look at Handmaiden's pants) which would pose to be the lower part of the vest, which then wouldn't look like it's tucked into pants. Alternatively the bit below the waist can be part of the vest (like in the Aspiring Knight's vest). Then the tabard. Like on master Orgus' set, a cloth or leather (colorable pls!) tabard which would look more or less like Anakin's from episode 2/3. Obi-Wan also had one but it was made of cloth and practically indistinguishable as a separate clothing article.

And then an alternative chest piece which would simply be brown Ragnos' robe with a hood attachment, no extras. Plain. Just textures inside to resemble a mentioned above vest and a tabard would be only on the front and only front bit would hang beneath the waist (Battle Expulsor's robe). I won't mind the tabard to be "glued" instead of being a free-flowing addition. just wouldn't like it too glitch as hard as Jolee's one. Oh, and a plain pair of boots ending a bit below the knee.


It's doable! I just mixed together good lot of Jedi sets. Their features just need to be put together and Bioware can do it! :/

Look at this guy's armor. Just get rid of the extra metal additions, add long sleeves, replace the cloth (there is a cloth hanging from the chains) with tabard and there we go! This guy even has the "skirt" bit below the waist but as part of the chest piece.

Hi folks, I'm from the french server "Battle Meditation" and I totally agree with this post:

where are the Jedi robes I expect for ages ?

I'm mostly a films fan (The Star Wars extended universe is quite obscure to me, sorry), and I'm still wondering why SWTOR is full of ugly (and desperatly hooded) outfits which make the Jedis looking as some kind of "Space Ivanhoe" mixed with World of Warcraft knights style.

I mean, we have planets, warzones, flashpoints, spaceships, funny emotes and stuff, but not propers Jedi robes and it makes me wondering if it's a technical/copyright problem to add them in the game.

So PLEASE, I'll be REALLY happy to have this:

It is "full of" that stuff and not the "traditional" robes becase this takes place 3600 or so years before the movies.
Fashion changes.
It is like asking for hoodies and jeans in a game that takes place in ancient rome.
Ok, so maby that is an extreme, but to think that jedi have dressed exactly the same for over 3000 years is kinda silly...

Somebody please take Kira's advice: Go to the Sith Empire and grab some of those supposed fashion designers that all seem to work there.

Otherwise, synthweaving could use some more useful schematics. Let the crafters make some of these- and make the most common-type robes ultra rare.

Regardless of what side of the argument people take- whether the canon robes(by whatever definition) are sufficiently in-game already or not; it does seem likely there would be customers to buy these robes if they can be crafted.

I HATE this argument. First off, the Traditional Jedi Robes that we are talking about can be found in KOTOR I & II. So to use your analogy, it is like pre-Roman's wearing jeans & hoodies, Roman's switching to toga's, then jean's & hoodies remarkably making a reappearance 3,000 years later.

Secondly, to be consistent, remove all Smuggler gear, Imperial uniforms, Trooper armors, Bounty Hunters armors that look strikingly similar to what we have seen in the movies & other modern EU depictions.

Finally, BW used many example of Traditional Jedi attire in the promo materials. Most notably in many scenes from the Timeline journals and the web comics.

Don't you people get it already?

It's been 2-years since this game launched, and it's become totally obvious why this isn't in yet: They don't want it in. They don't care that the players have been asking for it. All that matters is that they don't want them. They want big shoulder-pads, they want spikes, they want bright blinking lights all over the place, they want backpacks, MORE BACKPACKS!!!!!!

There is a video on youtube of some G4 reporter taking a tour of BW Austin and they showed her this entire wall covered with pictures of armors. Just think about how much work went into creating and entire wall of armors with huge shoulderpads, backpacks, spikes, and animal-helmets......And people wonder where 6-years of development went wrong.....

The irony is that when half the programmers and staff lost their jobs after subs tanked, I bet the artist all kept theirs. Explains why there's been no change in direction since launch. Just more of the same ---- all the time.

Sadly, I think no truer words have been written on these forums.
