Hood On/Off Toggle?

The outcry was sated simply because of the statement it would be in after 1.2. Which is fine. However now it's been shifted to "unsure when". I appreciate that things take time and there are (legitimately) more pressing issues in this game than a cosmetic issue with clothing, but when all the JK advertisement up to the game, in the beta, and even now on the splash pages for this site have hood-down Jedi you sort of seem to understand how iconic that look is and how frustrating this is. The butt issue needs fixing, I agree, but I'd rather my hair be visible than stop showing off my large wallet.

Even if you just introduced some reskinned sith robes with the hood down that are modable we'd be happy. But no... none of that. Oy!

SPOILER ALERT





The funny thing is most Jedi Knights you encountered in game do not wear hoods. When you gather your Jedi army on Corellia for the class quest (I paid attention to this), and none of your Jedi wear hoods.

So I don't get it. On one hand, someone in the art department seems to feel the hoodless Jedi is the typical look, yet, on the other hand, pretty much all Jedi armour (especially Guardian heavy armour) is hooded.
Build three farms and a barracks.

It is a sad fact that BW have SO much that needs to be developed and implemented (things that should have been in at launch), that this is just going to get pushed back and back.

There are many features that should have been included, many tried and tested MMO systems, but the lack of hoodless armour is an absolute joke... As many others have posted, Jedi Knights are plastered all over the official site, nonchalantly fighting off Sith with they're mullets out.. And yet as players we cannot. You go from 12-50 no longer seeing your character's head properly, all those cutscenes, all those dramatic moments with your hero obscured..

The whole issue in perspective is trifling.. But when you have a JK Guardian, it becomes a rather large annoyance.. Probably moreso than having a massive jedi arse...

Ironically I bet there are a few players out there that have forgotten what they're character's hair looks like...

Still hoping that this finds its way into the game sooner rather than later.

Only hoodless jedi guardian wear I have seen so far is the highly expensive legacy items, sold from the vendor on Coruscant.

With the latest patch this morning it would appear that a change has been made. If you have headgear on then the hood is dropped. If you remove the gear (at the loss of the headgear ratings) then the hood is back up. I still wish I could see a toggle applied but that is in the works as has been previously stated.

It also puts the hood back up if you select 'hide headslot', so you don't need to loose your headslot for stats. It does hide the look, so if you liked the hood + headslot look, you can't recreate that in the current build. Also, the hoodless look appears to simply rip the hood off your robe, rather than have it in the hood down pose other chest pieces have.

So yeah, this feels more like a bug than the hood toggle I'd like to see.

(EDIT: Yes, in fact it is a bug! http://www.swtor.com/community/showt...highlight=hood )

Here's hoping that devs will do more than just fix the bug and maybe finally implement the toggle everyone has requested since beta!
