I literally almost fell over when I heard this. ^-^

(EDIT: Also, the first music track is quite nice, too. I don't recognize it; is it new?

Well I listened to the video and didn't see/hear where he'd say we'd have to pay to recolour armour ?
Anyway it's going to cost credits for sure no ? Or are you meaning that for sure it's going to be real money ?

That was the most exiting thing in the whole video for me at least.

But as always, they did not share all the details. Is the recolor tied to the Kiosk? what are the costs involved? etc... etc...

Also the video is for April. Does that mean everything happens next week?

The video says "April and beyond", so I'd expect it within the next 6 weeks.

A while back, they also mentioned that the costs for customization options would be designed to be friendly with the monthly grants for subscribers. Not a definitive answer, but I can at least be fairly certain that I won't have to pay extra to paint my op's Rakata jacket white.

I hope it doesn't turn the game into a sea of black armor.

I am Darth Emo! Everything I wear is black, black as the blackest night to show how blackened my black heart heart beats with black blood behind my black eyes behind by black cloaked black armor.

Atris' robes are great. But how about letting players wear the robes that are already in the game but not accessible to them?

No worries. it will be only 50% black. 40% will be all white. 10% "other".

Judging by how few people actually use lightsabers that are not black-core, I don't think you have anything to worry about. Very few people actually want to look like classic Star Wars characters. Mark my words, you are going to see pink and rainbow colors all over the fleet.

I think that's a bit of an exaggeration, sometimes black just looks better, especially if your going for a darkside look...although I do think there is a point where it becomes too much! I think this game however, doesn't accommodate those of us that do like or want black as a primary color in our outfits very well. This change will go a long way in getting a more intricately designed and unique look for everyone! Thank you Bioware!
