Look's a lot like robes in game that you are saying isn't good enough, short sleeves and all.

Aside from the lore outfits, I suspect that the Valiant & Eradicator sets are the two most popular. I wonder why??? Let's see no extraneous tubes or shoulder accoutrements. Belts inside the outer cloak. The pants do not look like they are painted on and leave a little bit to the imagination.

I currently wear Relnex on my guardian because it's probably the closest I will ever get to the look that I would like to wear. But as I stated in my previous post that set has some important short-comings. From a pure aesthetic standpoint, Valiant & Eradicator are much more appealing and much better designed armor sets.

But no, I'm sure that you are right. BW should keep on producing sub-standard products for the CM. I'm sure that will lead to a very healthy game in the long run.
Oh you mean, give a tiny minority of the customers what they want because they whine about it all day?
The stuff in the CM is not sub-standard just because you don't like it.
There is a ton of stuff there that is very popular, hell, ive even seen people wearing the "ugly" Czerka shirt or the "craptastic" alderaan sets...
You strike me as a spoiled teenager that gets upset at xmas because they got an iPhone 4S instead of an iPhone 5... And now their world is ruined.

Oh and like the guy above me pointed out, you are so blind in this quest for the exact replicas that you didn't even notice that one of the pictures you used as "proof" that they existed in this time, has one of the major flaws you are crying about. Short sleeves....

Look further into the background. Game's world features traditional robes as well, along the crazy and exaggerated stuff for consulars, but they're just not found in the game.

So I knew what I was posting here : l

Yeah, we need more Jedi outfits in the game.
For example Zayne Carric http://www.residentgamers.com/cdn/im...aboutkotor.jpg

This kind of an armor is not part of the thread but I totally wouldn't mind this

btw Zayne is not wearing his Jedi robes because he's on the run, no?

Pssst... those guys in the background also have short sleeves...

just sayin'


As for Zayne, he never once wears "traditional" jedi robes... And neither does his master (or the other padawan's masters).
In fact, he has all the hallmarks of a "bad" jedi robe as outlined here on the forums.
He has short sleeves, belt on the outside of the robe and tight pants.
Not only that, but it's not even brown, its white! *ghasp*

I support this thread!

I think my favorite Jedi gear was the Black hole Consular gear that made my female consular look like an ancient egyptian temple prostitute

It's funny how that when your logic runs dry you must rely on personal attacks. As I stated a half a dozen posts ago, my evaluation of the items in the current Cartel pack is based upon the noticeable decrease in the prices on the GTN.

FWIW, I am more than happy to support anyone else championing specific items in the CM. I'd love to see more plain black robes for Sith and more proper Mando gear for BH's, etc etc. It just so happens that for me Jedi robes (in particular robes that aren't skin tight) are most important to me. The apparent strategy for items in the CM seems to be reskins with varying colors of blinking lights on them.

I would suggest that much more than a vocal minority would love to see outfits that are simpler and more fitting to the SW universe. This has been a recurring theme on these boards since launch. BW has acknowledged as much, yet we are a long way from their acknowledgement to actually seeing results.

BTW, check the posts, I wasn't the person that posted any pictures. I believe Alec did. If you want to make ad hominem attacks on me at least due me the favor of attacking me for things I've written. I learned the value of that in my 4th grade class this year.

I fully support this thread! I'd like to see more iconic robes with the option of hood/no hood
