Stephen Reid just said on Reddit that a Hood Toggle was difficult to add to the game. He has been an honest Communtiy Rep and I accept him at his word, so I get that may not come for a while.

Still though, I (and a ton of other Knight players) don't want to be stuck playing a bald hooded character til 50. So please add this interim fix. The following armors are completed and playable, as we have seen from this very website. Please add moddable versions of the following to the game as soon as possible:

The two Guardian and first Sentinel chest piece from this video:

The Knight from this video:

If this is different from the Class Progression video, than the Knight armor shown here:

The Jedi Armor from 1:05/1:06 in this video:

The armor on the central image on this page:

The Sentinel armor shown here:

The Guardian armor shown here:

... and the Guardian armor shown here:

http://www.swtor.com/info/holonet/inhabitants/miraluka

... and here:

If some of these are duplicate looks, then just add one, but right there are at least 8 chestpieces with the hood down, both Guardian and Sentinel, and if they were added in as moddable orange chest pieces, it would make at least this Jedi Knight, and though I don't speak for anybody else, I imagine a lot of other Knights, happy enough to enjoy playing our characters until such time as a toggle can be made.

Please do this. You have the art. It's done. It's as simple as adding 8 chestpieces to the game. With so little effort, you could make so many of your players happy to play again, and happy to subscribe again. Thank you for listening.

Ah thanks John for including Sentinels !

I support that ! If the "toggle" feature is too complicated, don't leave us with only hooded bath robe like now :/ ... Or that awful pvp gear.

The more I watch those trailers and screenshots, the more I think "wow the game is gonna be epic ! Some time in the future..." :/ ...

I'll stop playing the knight char, with broken companions, horrible design (cause the good designs didn't make it into the game for some reason), face hidden, fat butt, extremely hard to be competitive in pvp etc... It's just a clear message from bioware in my eyes : "play something else we'll fix the Jedi when we have balance within the population" ...

You are welcome! All the Jedi Knights are in this together.

Here are three more, bringing the total of already implemented Hood Down chestpieces that can be added in right now, to 11:

The Knight shown here:

The Guardian shown here:

http://www.swtor.com/media/screens/evolving-style

The Sentinel shown here:

All of these armors exist right now. Please, Devs, give the Knights a great late holiday present and let us enjoy the game fully.

Don't forget the ones on the freaking character creator that taunts you when you first make a Knight.

Not to mention every NPC Jedi Knight in the game.

And these:

The armors at 0:44, 3:03, 1:29, and 4:59 of this video:

http://www.swtor.com/media/trailers/...ing-light-side

One may be a re-color of one of the Sentinel armors I already linked, but it's different. That's at least 14 hood down armors the Devs have already designed and fully implemented that are waiting in a file to be added to the game as moddable chest armors and make every Jedi Knight player in the game happy. Devs, please do this as soon as possible.

How many of the people who would like a Hood Toggle would be happy with this solution?

Totally agree... I actually got upset enough with it, so I bought first modifiable trooper heavy armor of my level I came across to, added my own modifications into it, just to get rid of that damn hood look...

Agree. It's ridicilous that were forced to use hoods almost all the time. If hood toggle is difficult to implement then DONT ADD HOODS TO EVERY SINGLE GEAR.

Not to mention the other sources for Jedi Knights who fight with their hoods down: The "Star Wars" series of films and television shows.

Clearly the "harder than it looks" angle is hogwash, as they are already in the game, but the devs have either forgotten or chosen not to include them for those actual players who wish to play jedi knights.

Create new item. Copy/paste stats from planetary commendation vendor robe. Copy/paste hoodless robe model from existing hoodless robe model. Now, the time consuming part... pick a new name. Place on vendor. Done.

If it's harder than that, I shudder to think how long any improvements will take.

I explained why it might be complicated on the other thread.

Though for "new pieces" without toggle, obviously, we have to wait for a real content update.
