Decent-looking Smuggler Gear

I'll start out by saying that I hate the high end gear for the smuggler. Capes... capes? If I wanted to wear a cape, I'd play Champions Online.

However, there are some nice pieces as you level up... I figure that, at level 50 I'll hide my hat and swap the chest for an orange piece, even if it slightly gimps me (and use PvP gear for the rest).

Anyone else hate the high end smuggler look? It's not just the smuggler to be fair - the high end jedi gear, bounty hunter gear (for PvP at least) leaves a lot to be desired.

I also had a question - I've found a piece I really like, but it's blue, so not moddable.

It's a burgundy short jacket with white sleeves and a shoulder guard.

Here's a picture: http://i1078.photobucket.com/albums/...mysmuggler.jpg

Basically, I just wondered if anyone knew of an orange ( moddable) version of this armour piece?

There's a couple of versions of that chest piece that are moddable but they're all coloured blue, not brown... The blue version i found in Esseles at level 14 from one of the Robot Bosses. But i don't know if there's a moddable brown version..

Personally i hate the Smuggler end-game gear. I hate it more since the PvP and PvE sets are exactly the same, so not only do i have to suffer ugly PvP armour but ugly Raid gear as well, while Jedi in comparison get two fairly good looking sets that don't turn them into Superman.

Are we just not worth a second set Bioware? IS THAT IT?! ARE WE JUST THE NEGLECTED YOUNGER CHILD. NOT WORTHY OF YOUR TIME OR YOUR LOVE?!


But uhm.. There's a nice Chestpiece on Tatooine, after finishing all the quests. It's a long coat, greyish brownish colours, with goggles around the neck. Personally it's my favourite. I'm still using it at 50, full epic mods.

Im very partial to my Moddable Drelliad Jacket. Simple brown hip-long leather Jacket over white and blue Shirt & Undershirt.

and BTW, Jedi top PvP gear, aka "The golden Samurai with Backpack" is even worse.


As i heard, the Hilevel sets mods will be transferrable (with Setbonus) into other items, soon.
...and thats the way the flatcake crumbles.

Cowboy:

More recent set I made, more spacer looking:

I too am disgusted with the PvP and Raid gear looks, they make me look like a stupid derptastic bulimic super hero in a cowboy hat.

I pretty much won't wear my PvP unless in a WZ, then it comes straight the hell off.

I have VERY similar outfits.

We have VERY similar in game names (Captain Lee Apollo)

We're the same spec.

Wat.

The Pimpsuit and Cowboy jackets you linked are the same model with different coloring, and the Spacer look is a low level item. Considering you can get every single one of those jackets by level 40 and never get anything even remotely close to good looking from then on, there's a problem.

I have an almost all white outfit that I love. Random people I've teamed with seem to like it as well, but I got the pieces in the 30s. I looked at the high end gear and most of it is bleh. The one thing I have always disliked about games like this is that end game forces people to be clones or be weaker for raids.

What we need is a social outfit tab for putting ANY piece we want to be seen in. They can have no effect on our stats but let us look like we want. I do seem to recall Han wearing heavy armor at one point.

Mine is the "pimp suit" one or very similar to it. I don't mind the long coat but it's the collar the freaks me out. Not even the 70's had such radical collars. I like the low and mid lvl "Han Solo" looking outfits better.

I'm partial to the simple cut-off jacket that is given at the conclusion of the Coruscant Gree questline:
