Jedi Knights PvP gear is unacceptably pathetic. Be united against it!

I"m a 42 Sentinel right now who enjoys PVP, flawed though it is. I'd like to actually look cool once I finally hit 50 and earn all my top tier gear and not like a gay samurai from the sixties.

To be fair its not just jedi pretty much all republic gear you get from venders is horrible.

I think the best gear i have seen have been on npc's.

playing as Jedi Sentinel myself and this gear is horrible. Every lvl 20 sentinel with random green items looks better than me in my great pvp set...

why hating on the samurai look... if the armor only looked anywhere near a samurai look, then it'd look epic, but alas it does not..

I think we can easily ALL agree on this. Not only Sentinel and Guardian seem to have the same armor (which makes no sense at all), but it's also outrageously horrific.

THAT is supposed to be a Jedi? Really? There are some awesome armors in this game, including PvE ones which I dig a lot. But this is unacceptable.

It's not even the Samurai look, which could be passed as different. The helmet is the least worrysome part of the set. But the chest, the boots, the leggings, and come on, that thing on the back? We ain't Troopers!

Sign this for developer attention. I personally won't be using this armor set even if it means losing the Expertise.
Eh, the more I look at it, the more I'm convinced it's just the helmet that's god awful. Hide the helmet and I can stomach it.

Hi Alexious,

Style is something that is very subjective and what some people love, others find unacceptable. The solution to that lies in allowing players to control their own style, a function that the core game currently provides via customizable (orange) gear.

Please see Emmanuel's post on extending orange gear viability into endgame to get an idea of our intentions. Obviously, new appearances will also be added to the game over time as well.

Regards
Georg

Style is very subjective indeed, but somewhere you have to draw a line on what should a certain character look like, or not look like. As subective a style may be, I doubt you will ever consider implementing a pink tennis player outfit style for troopers, or a '70s disco outfit for jedi consulars. That JK outfit is honestly just as bad, tho I realize it must not be easy to imagine many and more different and credible outfits for Jedis since the movies and the general canon don't offer much other that the standard robes.
Still, it's good to know that we'll probably get full customization for looks, that's the best thing you can do about it. The second best thing is change that crappy samurai stuff right off the bat :P
