._. They'll just chop off my lekku again.
I could have had hours of laughs looking at the bunny ear lekku. They were already funny enough in beta, but seeing it more wouldn't hurt me at all. It's not great, mind you, but damn it would have been hilarious.

Now that sgr crowd got their satisfaction in the latest state of the game update, I hope the next one will deal with the hood toggle... -_-

I believe that having a hood toggle would be great. I am a huge fan of wearing good-looking gear and sometimes people do not want to wear the hood but they like the chest armor.

Pretty much. All my appearance issues with this game would be finished if I had a toggle. I swear. There are honestly good looking lower-level sest. Battle expulsor and the legacy one are sweet! Problem are the glued hoods. And I wish i could toggle shoulder pads off, too Rakata set for knight without pads would be nice, don't you think?

You can always pester them as much as we did.

It is complete and utter nonsense that the toggle is difficult to implement, since we've known from the start that certain pieces of headgear, as well as playing a Twi'lek, knock the hood off. The functionality has been in game since launch. However, they've made certain non-visor headbands remove the hood now, so I'm somewhat satisfied. I won't post which ones because if it was non-intentional, they might "fix" it and screw us over.

They are probably working on some stupid hood UP or DOWN toggle, which does require a lot of work because they'd have to make hood up and down art for every single hooded robe, and do a lot of extra coding to boot. IMO, this is a lot of work that's completely unnecessary. They seem intent on going down this road though. This pig-headed insistence that they must do hood UP or DOWN and not ON or OFF has robbed us players of much desired and easy to implement functionality for over a YEAR now.

What they should do is add in an adaptive armor head piece similar to all those "naked" or "invisible" armor pieces from the Cartel packs that knocks the hood off but has no actual graphic (e.g., the Covert Torso). It should be as cheap and common as those naked armor pieces as well. This would effectively be a hood ON or OFF toggle. But I guess I might have to be satisfied with my headbands and visors.

I don't need my character to animate the whole putting hood up or down! I just want the hood up attached to the armor switch into hood down details. They surely have means to do it. The headpieces which are removing hoods are proof that the hoods are completely separate details from the chest pieces.

i feel the same way. creating an animation for it is totally unnecessary and just complicates the sith out of an otherwise simple feature. if the volume of hooded gear is a problem, then make it so only moddable ones can switch between the up/down hoods.

Okay. Something is not right here. I totally feel discriminated against.

sgr demanders got what they wanted and it's gonna cost them 10 quid and involve so much other new content. And it's gonna be available to all their characters.

All of us who wanted hood down robes are forced to pay 15 quid for a single item set which is legacy bound!

Come on, we were even given eta for hood toggle and sgr not only makes it quicker but cheaper. What the heck? I feel discriminated! Can we get some fashion activists to start writing letters to Bioware and stuff?
