In any case, the point I was trying to make is, should the Dev's say it's an artwork issue, it's just not true. Every knight robe I have ever worn already has a hood down model in the game that can be observed using certain types of headgear (like the Battlelord glasses). It's just a matter of someone changing the model to use the hood down image with the Hide Helmet option, I know it can't be THAT difficult....

Currently it's: armor + headgear = appearance
Just needs to be: armor + headgear + helmet option = appearance.


I would like to see some of the other armors in game as well especially the colored up character creation set.

Well, that is not exactly true. Such headgear removes the hood completely, not puts it down. Though i agree on everything else, there are lots of hooded down alternatives in-game in a form of useless green/blue low level items.

Not really, there is only one (!) heavy robe with a hood down. It's blue quality and blue in colour. I had a nice comparision shot in the other thread between that hood-down piece and the other with hood up.
Bioware, please let us know if we're ever going to see iconic Jedi robes in the game... Or why not?

I really wanted to mirror that with a Jedi guardian right after I finished my SW storyline but I just couldn't look at my character covered by hood for the whole time. By the way, feel to contribute any pictures and all you find. Because I didn't play all the classes my knowledge of gear sets for any other classes than Kngiht/Warrior is rather limited.
I have to agree that BW failed when it comes to Republic armor sets. The Empire's armor sets look so much cooler/better is almost every case.

Pretty sad when you think about it.

Actually that's a good point

I usually avoid the forums, because they depress me, but this topic is one I am passionate about I would love to see more moddable sets for all classes. And I feel all your pain Jedi, as I could never get mine to look the way I wanted either. But it's not just the Jedi! My poor lil marauder just wants a hooded robe. I think they could solve a lot of issues by just making more items availiable to both factions. The dark blue Black Talon one for Jedi, and one of the neutral hooded ones for Sith.
Anyways, sorry for the jumbled thoughts, love the thread and hopefully they take notice eventually

Hey. Any voice matters. And I am sure they noticed it ages ago - they are just preparing it all for the Cash Shop. It would be very unfair if those items made it to the Cash Shop. Tbh I really wish the Cash Shop made it already because I seriously want my dream-sets (from the trailers...) asap.

Just from that first video, the knight 'class' video, the hair option isn't there. the facial 'type' isn't there either. and some of those moves/abilities aren't there either (or changed) like that whole pull-out-the-saber-toss-it-in-air-and-grab-it-in-mid-air-and-ignite flourish.
But yes hood down jedi battlelord robes

I am more annoyed about the armor than abilities/moves. Didn't even pay attention to that.
