That way folks who wanted to keep the old robe could, and folks who wanted to trade it in for the unbugged model could do so as well.

No-one gets double items and everybody gets what they want.

A worrying precedent.

It's not a quirky bug that people shrug off but a very noticeable looking error that mars the appearance of what was supposed to be a visually cool item.

It's sloppy and unprofessional to acknowledge this obvious error but fail to rectify it due to 'some liking the current version'

That argument can be used to NOT fix any bug ingame:

Codex borked? "Some like the challenge of finding out which are broken and which aren't so we're not fixing any of them, yay."

Ship grade 7 blasters no longer do the right damage? "Well, we've found that a few players have enjoyed this artificial challenge increase and so why disappoint those buggers with a fix?"

Naked bolster gives better results than fully geared in Warzones? "Well, I've met a few ingame who love the current diversity in appearances now in Warzones. With varying degrees of darkside corruption few naked players are the same colour and that adds more variety to the WZ landscape...for some people that is. No fix incoming."

While i bought and am happy with what i already have im on the fence as to wether i want it to be fixed or not

Its very hard to disagree with the above as the main problem i now have with this 'bug' is the prescedent it sets for future bugs that you BW cannnot be arsed to fix

+ 1 vote for the above save your selfs BW your , your only hope!!!

Adding a bunch of honesly awful looking ornaments to a whole slew of armor sets =/= "fixing sets due to display bugs." You just randomly tacked on shoulder pads, weird antennas, and all sorts of other junk, which are exactly the sorts of things people have told you time and time again do not fit with the Star Wars universe "look" that so many players prefer. Of course people got pissed, when they went out of their way to collect sets they really liked, and then you tacked a bunch of ugly crap onto them overnight with no warning. You deserved exactly what you got as a result, which was a huge amount of negative feedback.

Fixing a blatant glitch that would never have made it into the game, if your artist had simply put the set on in-engine and did a 360 spin on the toon, has nothing to do with randomly restyling sets and adding ugly, unrequested ornaments to them. It is troubling that you have learned so little from what players have been saying that you think "fixing" the double hood bug and "fixing" the Spymaster set are the same thing.

Reference #1 - Revan's Armor

Reference #2 - Revan's Armor


Reference #3 - Revan's Armor


Reference #4 - Revan's Armor

Revan's armor is much bulkier than what we get in the game. Instead of an inquisitor's robe, Revan wore body armor with a bulky chest plate that obscured the waist. It is similar in look to a samurai's armor.

Instead we get holy-shoulders-revan!-armor.

This is closer to Revan's classic look.

Overall, I'm just totally disappointed with Revan's armor in SWTOR. The only thing I like about it is the mask. They did a good job on the mask.
Yes. The fact that they used the model of the inquisitor's set, appears as pure laziness on their part. Lore items are not supposed to appear similar to generic item models already created in game.

Once again. FIX IT, MYTHIC/BIOWARE AUSTIN!

I know simply quoting is not adding much to this thread. But this is the best reply by far and summarizes about 75%+ of the comments made here.

It has been said a billion times already, but it seems we'll need to repeat it 5 billion times more for them to do it. If anyone deserves a unique and non-re-used armor models it's Revan. Even Blizzard made a full custom set for Arthas. But Bioware simply recoloured some inquisitor set... Without at least adding a cape.
