???????????????????????? I don't understand the part I just underlined. You obviously haven't kept up with this thread. Just stop posting, please.

You're trying to force what you think is canon on everyone here. You didn't invent the character, you don't get to decide what's canon or isn't. Deal with it.

Technically speaking. What Bioware has on the NPC Revan is Canon to Revan's personal equipment.


While on the other hand. the set of items we are given through the packs have an appearance bug contradictionary to what it was. Which is why there is a fix coming. As they have admitted there was appearance bugs.

That's the point I was trying to make. SithEMP or w/e was trying to say the armor Revan has in-game wasn't canon, but since Bioware invented the character if they want to say that's his armor, then he has to deal with it.

What is really interesting is that you folks are having a very similar conversation/debate to what happened internally when making this decision. 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!

I just subscribed to let you(EricMusco) know that I have lost a great amount of respect for you and your company. I have 0 faith in BioWare as of today.

It isn't canon IMO.

However, the armor in The Foundry is still broken, and EricMusco said that they aren't going to fix it, even though he promised that it would be fixed. He is in my book, a typical liar. I used to respect EricMusco, but after his statement, I'm disgusted at the entire BioWare staff, and especially disgusted with EricMusco.

The opinion of canon is left to the people who own the character rights, and that's defiantly not anyone who has posted in this thread. I told you, aelther and xorcist repeatedly they wouldn't bother wasting the resources making a whole new set from scratch over the current. People had the right over an existing set they got fixed over having it destroyed over a new set that doesn't exist in this game.


And to the latter, yes, the current set is still broken. Still light grey.

Not only in the current set broken..

EricMusco said that it is intended and there won't be a fix for it.

You promised to fix the color in this patch, and when it isn't fixed; it is working as intended.

Pathetic.

It's not just the color that hasn't been fixed, it's everything. Nothing about this armor set has changed in the patch. There are still double hoods aswell.
