Well, since this thread was revived, I can honestly say with how it looks, they aren't going to make a new kotor themed set or alter the existing set, And they are just going to fix the current. now only 2 bugs.

As an update:

patch 2.1 Fixed Bug 1 of 3. Revan's Lower Robe is no longer brown on default. Leaving only the double hood and the light grey instead of black robes color bug.

The advertised name of the existing armor set in collections is -Armor of Darth Revan- Which throws out the idea of making a new set named Darth Revan to be more Kotor Themed.

With the set advertised/sold/seen as it is in the collections, Revan NPC, Blockade Runner Pack, Space Pirate Pack its safe to say they wont make alterations to the set outside of the last 2 bug fixes to upset the players who wanted it like it is now bugs aside, and its easier and cheaper of resources to just fix the current than make a brand new set altogether, which is 99% of their intention anyways.

Of course this doesn't mean they couldn't make a Kotor themed one in the later future, But I can say patch 2.2 will just fix the last 2 bugs, and nothing more.

Our current target for these changes will be Game Update 2.2...

Thanks everyone!

Honestly, none of us have any more information than the post from the Devs here. We're all speculating.

Perhaps the best thing to do, then, is alter the existing Armor of Darth Revan to take on his KotOR-appearance (since they clearly are fine with making all-new models for the game, as they've done with the other KotOR-related sets), and use the existing *graphics* and apply them to a new set. They said that they're opposed to splitting the sets up into "Normal and Classic", but there's no reason they couldn't take the classic items and make them into a new "Foundry Armor-Set", either.

I dunno what the best solution would be or anything, but I definitely think there *are* solutions. I'm not 100% convinced, but I'm definitely *hopeful* that they'll just re-do the set to match his KotOR gear.

As of writing this, in the PTS 2.2 update. There has been nothing fixed to the armor. No Double Hood Fix, no light grey color bug fix. Nothin.

Was this sarcasm? As nothing has been done to fix this on the PTS.

Huh, that's.... disappointing. I suppose they *did* say that they were only "shooting for" 2.2. Honestly, though, they can take all the time they need, so long as they deliver on Revan's *true* clothing, instead of reskins of existing stuff

There is a strong difference between fixing appearance bugs and making a whole new set altogether. They can't add on to the current set any more than the 2 bugs. For Obvious reasons.

This is what was released, sold in packs, and made unlockable in collections interface. (2 bugs aside)

This doesn't exist in this game Nor does it have a right to overwrite itself over something that was paid for with money bro.

We get it; you don't want the original KotOR set. That doesn't mean that the notion that the set *could* be changed more dramatically is somehow "not going to happen". We clearly both feel passionately about both sides of the issue, so let's just leave it at that.

No I was being sincere. I was really ticked to hear that BW was not going to make a Revan Set correction because then they would have to release a classic gear set and an updated gear set. I'm genuinely glad they reconsidered.

This is not going to be fixed for 2.2?
