Revan's Chestplate; any word on a fix?

I have to say, as one of the focal characters in this era. I am completely disappointed in the "look" of Revan in this game as a whole. Beginning with the "double-hood" issue and the seemingly lack of interest from Dev's in getting it resolved. If this was with any other armor set in the game i wouldn't be quite so bothered by it but come on... its Revan.

Secondly, (and this is a gripe more than a complaint) the armor as a whole seems half-assed. If you look at concept art developed BY Bioware and the set-in game they look nothing alike. The Revan Armor was simply re-texture mapped to an existing light-armor model already in game.


Please BioWare. Fix this issue. As you can tell there is a big interest from this community to get this issue resolved.

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.
^This should be the solution for any time this happens, the Revan items and mistakes not yet made. Just make it a new permanent vendor that get's new items each time you have to modify a life CC set.

An example of this would be when we made changes to a few armor sets, such as the Spymaster’s set, due to display bugs. After making those changes players were understandably upset that we had now changed the appearance of an armor set which they had paid for, we want to make sure to not replicate this issue again.
Absolutely the right call, don't move my cheese.

But honestly, how hard is it simply add another piece that has the single hood? Or maybe change the current piece to have one hood and add a piece with the double hood.

What really crosses my peas with my carrots with this, is this could of been fixed forever ago before the phantom and spymaster "fiasco" even took place. Double hood bug has been here since the item came out in 1.6.0, it got bugged being light grey in 1.6.1, the lower robe got graphically fixed in 1.6.2 and is still bugged to be brown on default.


Common BW. It won't kill you to remove the second hood, and I doubt the community would cry for a hood that is clipping through the armor anyway. There has been over 113 posts as of right now since u last posted, with almost 94% of positive feedback saying fix it.

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.
Man, it really is striking just how different original Revan looks from the existing set. I really wish they would just copy-past his equipment from KotOR, since it just looks absolutely amazing! We can all agree, though, that the two-hoods issue is, frankly, unacceptable. Also, I hadn't really noticed it before, but the in-game Revan's Mask looks quite a lot "bulkier" than his original mask.

Perhaps they should also make a set that is COMPLETELY true to the KotOR armor, and release as a new "Darth Revan" set, as opposed to just not doing anything at all?

I agree, a new set entirely would be sufficient enough. At least to quench the taste of Revanites like me

Well, it works out for me since I wear a headband to remove the top hood. I prefer to show my character's faces in MMOs, so having the bottom hood showing looks better than having no hood.

Of course, a hood up/down toggle would be the ideal solution. I know that is a lot of work so the immediate practical solution would be to have two versions of the chest. Barring that, I prefer to have the two hoods version rather than one hood up that gets completely clipped off with a headband.

I hate to spoil your look but even with the hood down you still have clipping. Look at the back of your outfit next time you're logged on. You'll see part of the "up hood" is still there and is clipping through your "down hood."
