Except it's not good news at all. It just shows that Bioware don't know what they are doing at all.

I for one want the items to look like how they did but I still think they are giving unfair treatment to.. well.. at the moment, -everyone- involved who cares about this issue, regardless of what they prefer.

This statement needs clarification. So the fix was unintentional? It was unintentional that everyone was fixed? I'm so confused. Someone need to post exactly what was "unintentional" about it and what your intended fix entails.

Except, it's NOT a photo, not even a screenshot, but a handdrawn artistic interpretation of POSSIBLE contents. Otherwise, every single pack should contain ALL the items shown on that picture.

BIOWARE PLEASE READ:

This is how you fix the problem.

Create a temporary vendor that contains the armors (Phantom, Spymaster, not sure if others) that were falsely advertised. The vendors should contain BOTH the "old" and "new" armors. The cost for the "old" armor would be the "new" armor, and vice versa.

This way everyone can have the look they wanted, no more QQ.

Yes, some sort of clarification is needed as to what is going to happen. I was going to acquire a couple of these sets for companions now that they have been fixed, but I will wait until it is made clear exactly what BWs intent is.

I'm digging in to this today. I'm going to see what happened and clarify what the gear should look like. Apologies for the confusion.

This makes a lot of sense.

Alternate way to avoid a vendor. Make them two separate items (would have to happen anyway) remove the item from everyone and refund the coins and let them rebuy the one they want.

I have to say I am seriously disappointed with the changes. I was excited to finally find the Phantom outfit because it did NOT have the stupid shoulder crap or a hood. Now they "fix" it so it looks just like the rest of the crappy armour with a hood and idiotic shoulder pads.

Its bad enough they couldnt make the Revan chestpiece without the stupid shoulder pads, but now they screw up the one outfit I'd found for my sith that actually looked good.

I wish they would change it back or give us an option to have an unchanged version.

I hope this means they will return the Phantom Chestguard to its shoulderpad-less look. I loved its look pre-patch. And I like many spent money to get it. So I hope it is not a waste.

I'm so confused by what Joveth is trying to say. You guys said you'd fix the sets, you did, and now you're saying it was done in error? What am I missing here?
