All i want is for a few robes that are not mage robes with big shoulders, something in dark greys or blacks (like the jedi have) that actually feel Star Warsy instead of a WoW mage with big shoulders.

Im not wanting fancy stuff plain robes with pants option, like the sith had in the movies

cmon guys, give inquisitors a Star Wars looking set, we dont want to be mages

Supreme Inquisitor set looks a bit like dark jedi.

Otherwise, for black without shoulder, Saber Marshall and Black Talon robes work for the upper body.

You'll still get a skirt tough :P

I don't mind the robe sets (I went Empire for the design choices, among other things).. but I DO think that the limitations for some gear (jedi only robes as an example) seem odd. I am actually not a fan of the robe look for my jedi knight, and I'd love to have some of that juggernaut heavy style to wear on repub side as well...but im stuck with the non-dyed wool throwover that my guardian wears. All they'd have to do is remove the class limitations on mod gear. most gear is gated via armor type already...there shouldn't be any reason why a knight/jugg can't wear the same gear.

No offense, but I dont think you understand who the Sith are. The Sith are NOT the Jedi or even "bad Jedi", they are the anti-Jedi. The Sith hate everything about the Jedi and try their best not to be like them from clothing, to philosophy, and if they could they would not use the same weapon (Lightsabers). The Sith would not wear the same clothing as Jedi, hence the different clothing style. Although I do think they could use some help with clothing designs, making them Jedi with darker color motif is not the way.

Definitely went for the saber marshall set. I just keep upgrading it as I level till I go to pvp gear. Doesn't have all the pinky and purple stuff in it that makes me look like a girl......lol There is also another robe on drommund kaas from a heroic close to the dark temple. (can't remember the name of the quest or the robe off hand), but it looks a lot like the saber marshal but with more deep dark red in it. Looks more sithy! Pretty nice...........not sure but there may be other pieces to the set from other heroics on the planet.

a bit offtopic but i hate robes on any male character, its just not my thing:

That being said, i have alot of nice options through social clothing (essentially another orange gear with "light armor" only flag) and jesus! I look freaking good!

At L50, im gonna ditch the pants-dress and mod an orange pants. Im gonna look (and perform) freaking nice!

Robes 4tl!

Supreme Inquisitor and Saber Marshall sets are the only 2 that come to mind that look like dark jedi. Everything else looks space-clownish.

Sorcs (especially when standing with lightsaber out) look more like an Undead Mage, than anything from Starwars. Even the way they stand is nearly the same. Both Jedi and Sith wear robes, different styles yes.

OP - I think there are more customisation options coming soon, that will allow you to use hoods, not sure about the huge shoulder pads that have been copied from WoW.

was using the Saber Marshal reward chest from Dromund Kass quest reward (i think) till latelly.

Kept that outfit till about L28, where at Tatooine i spot the quite nice Social armor chest of "Sand People" , a yellowish one with great textures and switched there. Also tried the helmet, it was funny

Not a level afterwards, i get to Alderaan and lo and behold and FREAKING nice chest/pants/gloves/set, that looks quite similar to Juggernaut armor of the same level (Normal looking cloth armor with cape). I combined that with the head item from Dromund Kaas, a goggle looking apperature that looks cool imo (and ditched the silly looking Sand People headpiece).

Yes, my Sith Sorcerer, looks KICK-AR$3!

Tat and Alderaan require Social3 btw.

Sidious was the Sithiest Sith of them all. I want to look like Sidious, not like a clown.
