Well that makes sense, the primary color of the set is black and secondary is red, so maybe on some items with certain materials the red may look orange... or if that item has a lot more of secondary color than primary...
Anyway, they're fixing the whole set now so it's possible the unified pieces will look very different as well.

There are two sides of the coin we had to look at. 1) Be sensitive to those who like the current look of the armor and to not take away what they enjoy. 2) That the current appearance contains a bug (which we of course would not want to leave in place) and isn't entirely canonical.

As indicated in my last post, we decided to err on the side of caution and to not change the appearance in the event that some players liked it. However, after continuing to read this thread it is clear that players in general care the most about the armor appearing canonical and not have an appearance bug in place. I do realize the forums are just one component of our entire community but I am inclined to believe a lot of players, even those outside the forums, would like to see the armor be more canonical.

After passing that information on to the team we have decided that we will be changing Revan's armor, and more than just the double hood! I will have more specifics later on, but aside from just fixing the double hood, you will see some color adjustments, etc. in the armor overall. Our current target for these changes will be Game Update 2.2.

I want to reiterate that when these changes take place, we will not be releasing a classic version of Revan's armor - the new appearance will be the only appearance available.

Thanks everyone!

Thank you so much.

One last question. "we will not be releasing a classic version of Revan's armor" Does this mean the KOTOR Revan armor, or the new set of armor similar to the spymaster situation?

"and more than just the double hood!" - I will purchase 6 more months of subs if I can look like the KOTOR Revan.

That aside, you guys really pulled through here, and whether or not you release the KOTOR Revan armor, I can finally say you guys made the right decision.

It is very rare that I read something from EAware and fills me with hope (doubt it'll last long though ).

Thank you for announcing that you guys will fix the broken Revan armor you gave us.

But actual Revan's set must look properly, not as a bugged recoloured inquisitor set with 2 hoods.

Thus you are incorrect.
The Mandalorian Wars were a series of massacres that masked another war, a war of conversion. Culminating in a final atrocity that no Jedi could walk away fromů save one.

Well then use phantom chest. Same model, a bit different textures (not gonna matter much when dyes come out) also does not cut off belly part.
