The next tier of gear had better not have anything even remotely similar to a cape and cowboy hat or I swear to god.
While I like the cowboy look I'm tired of seeing power and accuracy on the gear. I'd like to keep my current crit + surge level (since I'm near the soft cap) while adding power, not replacing the crit + surge entirely with only a paltry amount from the scattergun and pants.

Sorry and your idea of diversity is not going to work for the simple fact that Orange Gear with mods will always be < PVP Gear.

Give us an appearance tab and allow a player to use any wearables of choice for appearance. Then we will have diversity.

then we will have a "Barbie dress up game"
one of the points of playing pve heroics-flashpoints etc is to get loot and not only because of their stats BUT their looks too!!
i love it when i go through a flashpoint from which i dont expect any new/stronger gear to drop BUT then i get a similar to my current gear item BUT whith different design (color etc)


one of the point of searching for armors in pve and also going to Global marketplace is to find better looking armors than your current one, even if they are the same-similar stats.

if we get "an appearance tab and allow a player to use any wearables of choice for appearance" then the whole point of armor searching either in PVE or Marketplace will be gone

This is awesome. I can keep my Shadow in her 'Republic Dancer's Top' now. Nothing like eating a face full of lightsaber from a pretty much topless alien girl.

You are bent..... in 1.2 we can remove the pvp armoring which has the expertise rating on it. This means your orange aspiring jedi knights chest can have the same stats as a battlemaster chest and still give the set bonus.

Reading comprehension on these forums leaves much to be desired.

Yeah I was reading his complaint like what??? Didn't someone JUST a page ago says they will be able to be EXACTLY equal.

Anyway, great news since I just hit 50 and love mixing and matching custom gear to look unique.

I'm so happy about this. Now I can find armor without the stupid mudflaps (what the heck is up with the stupid half skirt on trooper armor?!)

I played a trooper so I didn't have to wear a skirt!
