Minus the arm armguards and the hood (need to use a stupid circlet). Otherwise - it's pretty much it.

So what happened to the direct purchase set? Is it coming soon or what?

Could be numerous reasons. I wouldn't judge them too harshly.

99.999% sure he was talking about the Humble Hero's set, since it's a straightforward palate-swapped copy of Luke's Ep. VI Jedi outfit.

I'm pretty certain Humble Hero was the set as well, which is silly because it's not even a robe. Also frustrating because it is just Luke's outfit, but it was this thread where it was said they wouldn't "copy and paste" Obi-Wan's look. Why's Luke fine to do, then?

But we're real close with Kreia's robe. I'd be satisfied if we had hood toggle or I played a twi'lek. At least I can be happy Ashara will be able to get the look.

While it is a Luke's outfit - it is not a Jedi robe and it's nothing close to the "traditional". Priest-collared body suit? ;/ Really, they could've just made classic Ajunta Pall tunic, slap tabard onto it and be done with it.

So they won't go for Obi-Wan look. Fine. Then go for Master Kavar, from KotOR 2. Go for the robes Meetra Surik and her Jedi companions wore. Strip Ajunta Pall tunic of the funky and ridiculous orange stuff and release it as a traditional tunic. What about KotOR 1 robes? Why is it okay to release so many lore sets but only as long as they don't look like simple Jedi robes? Cartel market armor sets start to feel less and less like Star Wars. You've so many options, devs, and you tend to go for the awful stuff and do awful work when it comes to Jedi characters.

Direct purchase armors don't come along that often; nothing else would fit the timing. Except maybe Exterminator's, but even though that has a long-sleeved robe, armor is even less traditional. Plus he was hedging by questioning what "traditional" meant, even though we all know it's the Obi-Wan look.

Would still need a set with the robe, though. After we get hood toggle we need a robe toggle.

There is a general consensus among Star Wars community what a traditional Jedi attire is. See "Jedi attire" on Wookiepedia.

Jolee Bindo's definitely fits it but I really dislike the set in SWTOR (even though it's the best Jedi-like thing out there, still) because of them ruining it with the hump-like sack on the back.


Can be released as a standalone chest piece, like other cm stuff.
