What the Inquisitor Armor *Should* Look Like

None of the Jedi Robes really resemble the classic star wars jedi style in my opinion, what the consulars are sick of is not what I am asking for, I still dont think the consular can wear anything that at all resembles:

Again, its all a matter of personal opinion, I would just like to have the option wear something like the outfit linked above.

As a Consular and just starting an Inquisitor (making the Empire couterpart to my Shadow), I can say that the Consulars that are complaining about their kit are mainly looking for non-skirt lowers, as at present we're limited to a couple available from Alderaan commendation vendors. I think most would be happier if they could equip something that's more classically Star Wars in appearance, or looks more like Satele Shan.

I loved the KOTOR look when I played them both, as they were recognisable enough to be Star Wars, but distinct from the films' styling. I think if Bioware had kept that look going it would've been win-win as far as things go. The Sith Apprentices shot the OP linked to could've been a wonderful compromise. Personally, I'd like my Sith Assassin to look something like this - Assassin (obviously with a lightsaber/saberstaff instead of the blaster) - but I can see why they might not.

I do like that the dev team have tried to make a look for the game, but some of it just doesn't scream 'Star Wars' to me. The 'peacock' from the endgame armour looks quite cool, but doesn't immediately make me think that it's a feared Sith Inquisitor, more an ostentatious Imperial official. But, the Consulars don't get kit that's any better!

Kiannara - - Tactics // Khellin - - Annihilation
Kascie - - Combat // Kayuri- - Marksmanship

Honestly if you look at the classes anyway I would have prefered to have two other classes instead of having force using jedi and light saber using jedi, same for sith and have a hybrid pick and mix scheme where if you wished you could opt for melee or ranged attacks. I guess it woud be a ***** to balance but it would make sense to me lore wise.

I'm level 46 and just have basic black robes with a hood that I modded out to be as good/better than current level stuff. I dread the moment when I hit 50 and have to start buying battlemaster gear.

I disagree, the sith of this game are not the same sith in the movies. They like to flant their power and "simple robes" are not their style (the pvp gear looks great btw) and art wise it is a bold and powerful design that they went with, last I checked bold and powerful was very sith.

The fact that the sith don't look the same as the movie versions is a good thing, it sets them apart from the movie giveing them some unique looks and in the movies the Sith were hideing from their enemy the Jedi, and in this game they are not. However i will admit that in would like to see the pointy wizard hat go away thats just absurd, maybe a hood with a mask instead?

I'm not fond of the conehead either, and what's with the spray painted canoes for shoulderpads? Other than the BT robes, the quest reward for the Revanite questline on DK is the closest to classic SW I've seen that's moddable.
