Good thing I never got around to equipping or modding my Phantom armor sets on my alt yet. If I had fully committed to something I spent that many resources gathering and just had it ruined with the usual level of failure I have to expect from Bioware, I would probably have unsubbed or at least boycotted the Cartel Market.

This should have been addressed as close to the release of the item sets as possible, not this many weeks down the line Bioware. Another poor decision that is going to make alot of people angry about a Real Money item. Very bad for business.

The real shame is how awesome the Phantom set looked before and now it looks like total garbage. Why would you idiots give it a hood if the corresponding set helmet just overrides it? Seriously, hire some new staff......

wait a minute, WAIT A MINUTE.... its hooded now? I haven't had a chance to check in game yet, but I specifically bought it for my sentinel, because I wanted jedilike overcoat without the hood. damn it.

first they randomly bind pants to a wrong character, just because I put some mods in it before mailing it (mods were crafted on a spot, so they were not bound, and they worked fine with other pieces of gear). and now I have to figure out a new chest piece for her.. again? sentinel options at low levels that I like (aka, hoodless) are scarce as it is.
grrrr.

dear bioware. if you are going to randomly add hoods to things, could you do that AFTER implementing hood toggle? please?

P.S. I don't want her to use a headband. she's miraluka with the tribal looking eye covering that I chose very deliberately and would like to keep that look.

You deliberately miss the point. I paid money based on the IN GAME LOOK. Not some stylized look on a promo picture. Promo pictures are frequently wrong. I've rarely ever seen any concept art or promo picture show what the actual item looks like. So I wait until I actually SEE the item, and if I like it, I purchase it on the actual item. This is what I did. I purchased the item based on it's actual in game look. Spending a good chunk of money to do so. Is my money worth less than yours? The option to fix this to make every one happy is simple. That bioware would rather piss off it's customers instead of making everyone happy leads me to question why I continue subbing to this game.

Of course they were not unintended. These fixes have been noted in the patch notes.

  • Currently, the Stylish Dancerís outfit is advertised as being white, but it should be red, as it appears when you preview the item. This will be adjusted for a future patch.
We apologize for any inconvenience. In the future, we will ensure that all assets are in alignment on the Cartel Market. The final products are meant to look like the advertised art.
Thank you for the clarification. Maybe now people will understand that that if they got an item with different artwork than what's shown in the promo that it's incorrect and likely to eventually be fixed and that the Dev Tracker is there for a reason and that this was noted last month as an issue and their fault for not following it.

I've got something I called "The Device" ready for that

So I should expect the Revan robes to be changed back into what they used to be? because the cartel pack image is clearly showing the old version in it's image...
