Sorry if you don't like the sleeve length...
When I first saw those robes, I thought to myself "no way that's what he's referring to."

Nearly a year later, I've accepted that it probably was.

It's funny though. I'd probably rather have traditional robes more than Galactic Starfighter.

Maybe someone will get the dvd's as a Christmas present, really they only need to watch the first 5-10 minutes of Ep 1 to see the Jedi robes people are requesting.

I'm confused why this is an issue. There are plenty of robes in the game that look like traditional Jedi robes. Hell just leveling through Coruscant you get 3-4 of them.

Arrrrgh, how many times to we have to repeat ourselves? xD

- Skin tight pants
- Hoods up permanently (no up/down variety at all outside of the cartel market)
- belts outside of the robe
- short sleeves
- Only primary dye colour applies (can't turn it all-black as the vest will always remain light brown)
- Not adaptive --- Sith/Consulars won't wear the simple gear

Not good enough after two years.

Apart from those few relatively simple robes (Battle Expulsor for example) with the above mentioned features, everything you get beyond Taris has plenty of unnecessary additions and armor paddings. :[ Would be nice to finally get something everyone can look at and say "It's a Jedi outfit I know!"

I am not here to 'cause havoc like certain people who were banned in recent weeks. It's just the only thing I want to feel... Complete. :l You wouldn't understand!
Atris' robes are great. But how about letting players wear the robes that are already in the game but not accessible to them?

Jolee Bindo's and Relnex's set meet most of the "requirements" you listed.

Those are not requirements! Those are the features we are not fond of. We, the people who'd like more traditional and iconic Jedi looks. :[

Question - if people want the "traditional" Jedi robes, so to speak, then why is that even a request. What we see in the movies is 3000 years in the future - it is not the tradition, let alone the style of this time period. I have no problem with most of the robes and armor we have in the game now - at least we can see something change in the 3 millennia between now and then. I don't want the game to look more like the SW of the movies, I would much prefer it remain on its own - in its own time period. That's part of the fun and attraction of the SW lore and IP - that it actually is a different time period and thusly should have a different look.

You haven't played KotOR games or seen all the art accompanying TOR? :[

Well that's all fine and dandy if that's the case, but to ask for stuff that we have seen in the movies - even if it was in some part including in the previous games, then no thank you. I am quite happy with the robes we have gotten thus far. The traditional robes are rather boring to me.

I do miss those armors

I also want the Jal Shey and Zeison Sha armors added in. Less bulky looking, but still look like they would be more in line with force user guardians.
I'll tell you what, then. Why don't you call me some time when you have no class?
