Also, again, anyone who is level 40+, can you post screenshots of the armor options at that point? Just in case MAYBE there's something in that level range without a hood that looks good?

That's what really sucks about this, there might be something awesome later on that is really worth it but its difficult to know because being an MMO, there's not a lot of solid documentation on the game yet.
I agree. If it's out there, I'd love to see it, but I was in beta for three weeks and never did. I don't think it is.

I don't wanto to craft or wear another hooded robe ever again. Stopped playing my Knight because of it, it really kills visual progression. That hood down robe top we get from the commendation vendor on Tython was ok, why can't we have countless recolours of that instead? or orange schematics for it that Heavy armour Knights can use.

Meh, that one's decent, but I really want something more like this.

I mean... its ridiculous how often they've shown hood down versions in promotional screenshots and yet there isn't a single one in the *********** game. Which means that they clearly either meant to have a hood toggle and didn't implement it yet, or scrapped all the hood down versions for no reason, because they obviously already have the models available in the game.

People playing guardians really should realize something :

While you guys don't get the "hood down versions" of your gear, us sentinels...

Don't have "our gear" at all. It is hooded too, and not a SINGLE piece we get isn't a colour swap, while original art and pieces were promoted through different media.

Maybe they removed all the cool content so that they can put it in an update and pretend they actually worked or something. I don't see any other explaination.

Agreed Strayth, although I think the larger issue right now is the hood thing, because the gear variety for BOTH Guardians and Sentinels is kind of lacking right now.

The sad thing is, knowing how MMO's work, this isn't a high priority issue so we're likely looking at at least 6 months down the line til we can even see our character's face. Just incredibly frustrating.

You don't have the Sentinel piece with the big "round neck" and no hood that the guy in the video has?

Make sure to ask Stephen Reid this question on his Reddit on Wed. the 28th. He said we would have a hood toggle on Twitter and this is the time to ask:

I would do it myself but I will be on an airplane.

I would love an answer.

Yes somebody please ask. I have no interest in reddit so someone else will have to do it tough. I will gladly keep this thread bumped until then.

200+ replies so far, everyone in agreement that we should have a hood toggle or at least robes with hood down. Other than Kira this is pretty clearly the biggest issue for the Jedi Knight class atm, and we already know Kira is getting fixed next patch... so maybe there is some hope.

Hopefully get an answer for that and the whole Twi'lek hood issue as well.

Here's a pretty decent (imo) looking hoodless orange chest piece (i.e. modable):

Anyone know where to find it?

I'd rather have a robe than a vest, yes, but at least a vest would let me avoid the "big butt" syndrome a robe brings with it currently...

Plus, I like blue.
