For those of us who did not join at launch, you may not have gotten your toons to lvl 50 before patch 2.0 which removed the tionese/columi/rakata gear sets from the game. While some of the new armor looks good, I though the old tier gear's appearance was much better. That gear looked much more like what our toons would actually wear around the galaxy. The weaponsmaster gear is possibly the only gear set in the game that would look good on my mara. Unfortunately these gear sets have been removed. My solution is that Bioware should insert a new vendor into the game that sells the schematics for that old gear for basic or maybe elite comms. Or classic comms since it is classic gear. DON'T put in the CM and force us to pay for gear that we already though would be in from the progression trailers. We already give you money every month, we should at least get the gear that lured some of us in in the first place.
These new J. J. Abrams movies are just a bad dream. Someone wake me up when Timothy Zahn says he's directing a SW film.

No, don't be a baby. People deserve to have exclusive items, everything doesn't have to belong to everyone, this isn't a lesson on Marxism.

I played WoW for 6 years, and I enjoyed having items that other players could not have. It was a nice feeling having things like a ZG tiger, or Tier 3 gear, items that were time sensitive and could not be obtained after a certain patch. I don't even have any of the TIonese/Columi/Rakata gear, and I wouldn't want it, since I didn't do anything to deserve it.

I'd be ok with either classic comms or drops from those old bosses. I wouldn't like just a credits vendor or a CM addition just anyone could go pick up (not that classic comms are hard to come by).

Have a feeling though this will fall on deaf ears, as it's been asked for ever since they were removed.

Reading this thread makes me want to throw my columni gear back on my BH.

I'm certainly not sad that I don't have to see this absurdity anymore.

You weren't there, you shouldn't have access to it IMO.

When partisan was current I remodded my sage tionese set and had good fun in reg WZs. The silly look of it was like a red cape for bulls.

Well Id certainly support this. It would be nice to have them come as either planetary vendors or classic comms as has been suggested. There may be some threads about this in the cartel market section of the forums... which is most likely how they would bring it back to make some money.

Perhaps they could bring the sets or pieces back for an event?

To be honest, no one did anything to get this armor. it was GIVEN to you for free once you hit 50. I think the shells should be brought back...for a price. My idiot butt vendored mine when I got CM items..I regretted that the second RotHC came out and I could no longer get them. They were cool looking, and that is why I think most people want them back. And (correct me if I am wrong) but the classic comm gear = rakata? The gear looks similar if I remember right. So you do have that gear. the classic gear used to be the high end gear before the expac.
Death to all whom oppose us!

Are you talking about recruit gear? Tionese, Columni, and Rakata involved running HM FPs, and OPs.
