Seeing a trend...

I don't know if anyone else has noticed this, but it's starting to irritate me. Every time BioWare comes out with "new" equipment, all it ever seems to be is existing armor/weapons, but now they have particle effects. Take all of the Gree items, the weapons and the armor, it's just old armor with lights and particle effects on them.

This continually seems to happen and my question is, are they really even designing new armor/weapons/speeders? Or are they just going to continue to rehash all of the old stuff by adding different effects to them?

I hear they're coming out with a new expansion in a few months - maybe that will have some new gear sets for you?

I have an idea... nice basic robes. It will be the #1 seller.

Yep, but nobody seems to really mind that much. Now we can cosplay TRON.

Yea this Ilum event is just a build up to the expansion don't think they are going to devote that much dev time to it when they have that closing in on them.

You just now noticed this trend? It has been pretty much standard operating procedure for BW since the great purge.

This. They come in four different colors. Black, brown, grey and white.

^This.

Even better, though probably more difficult for them to implement, would be your basic chestpiece, then an outer chest piece/robe/heavy jacket as well, even if it was just cosmetic with no stats.

But yeah, a basic black robe, no armpads or weird designs or extra stuff on them, that would be awesome.

OP must be blind because the event weapons are all new models. That new Incendia speeder however is just a lazy recolor. Oh wait...
