This is great!

Will we be able to take mods from Battle Master, etc and put them in social gear?

A friend of mine tried this on just one piece and it cut her armor down to 50 or so points on her amor and when you get higher it makes a big difference.

What they are doing now makes the amor work to what type of your amor is. You don't lose any rating/points on your armor this way and makes it more viable for anyone to wear it now (or when the patch goes live)
So you are saying that the Chain mail Bikini just became a viable option in this game as a female trooper can put on the dancer outfit and it will act like heavy armor?

While not the right place for this, I definitely preferred it the old way then. I hate when games treat light/cloth armor as heavy armor because it is for the look. Oh well.

almost, as I found out the hard way, with the new stuff like war hero you can do this but with the older stuff like battlemaster you cannot. I'm really hoping they changed this as I spent ages getting the respective social levels and fleet comms to get the look i wanted only to find out I'd wasted a lot of credits stripping all the mods out

Getting there slowly eventually they will give in and just allow an Appearance tab and the customization will be complete.

That's the Rakghoul-containment-officer (imperial) and was only available during the rakghoul-event. You can't get it anymore, sorry

Um...can we get a color kit on top of that? Maybe also for our ships/speeders?
