I guess since the toggle may be a lost cause for now, I'll bump this. We want our hood down robes dammit! And we want them yesterday!

There may be clipping issues incoming - yes. I dont like these little beasts - yes. But in that special case i dont give a damn - you may fix that later. I can wait for that a long long time if you get off them hoods by now.

There are already clipping issues. The hoods clip the Miraluka masks in many cases. Clipping issues are in the game right now.

The Twilekk Lekku won't clip because the hood part doesn't appear on a Twi Lek anyway.

Even if there are clipping issues on half of the 14 ready to go chest pieces I linked to, that's still 7 moddable knight armors with the hood down in the game, more than enough to allow me to find one that suits my Jedi.

The ironic part of all this is that so many of the looks are amazing when the hood is down. I am genuinely excited about being able to wear any of them. They would all be better then the Medium Tython tunic I am making do with currently. And all are better than being hooded and bald against my will.

Yes please! I can live without a hood toggle, IF there are hood down robes in game!

Give us a chance to choose, to enjoy our characters and the story!

This is a story driven mmo after all, is it not?

That's it guys, I... am wearing the goggles. I was tired of my "prince" look (the white and golden cape, ya know). So I put some sentinels cloth on, with googles.

Well as I had a lot of hair, it kinda hides it, and strangely, as sentinels cloth have a lot of stuff like that, it doesn't seem too weird.

Wonder how long I will last till the illusion is broken again. At least it doesn't have the fat butt.

(talking about that, think about upping the butt thread or they'll think we're over it D; I'm the last post I don't wanna double post)

I'm totally fine with the toggle being too complicated. That's what this thread is for. It's to promote the Devs just putting the armors I linked to in the game for now. I don't need to "toggle on... toggle off... toggle on... toggle off" to be a happy Jedi. I don't need to re-enact Ben taking his hood off in Ep IV.

I just want to be a Jedi with the hair I gave him who can spend a cut scene without his head covered up and still wear cool Heavy robes/armor meant for a Jedi, not a Trooper.

And I disagree that we would have to wait for a big content update. If the armors are done, it should be as simple as what the previous poster stated: Add stats. Name. Insert into commendation vendor. I really believe we could have them in the game by next week if they thought it was important. I also believe that having it in before the first month of game time is up IS important.

Well John, I think I've been vocal enough so that you know I agree with you on all points.

That being said, all that matters is Bioware's point of view.

Obviously, they knew exactly many of their JK players would be upset by how badly the class has been handled (there's not a single area that doesn't have SERIOUS problems).

If it were, let's say, imperial agent, I guess we could understand that. But failing THE class the licence your game is based on ? That's hard to believe. As the game has great qualities, it's impossible to believe that such an incompetent team actually put this great game together. So it had to be done "on purpose".

Though I think they didn't want us to feel so bad about it. Problem is, there's been TONS of other problems with the game.

From game breaking issues (quests failing etc...) to the game being unplayable for many players (with high end comps and decent comps), all the "little things" they wanted to fix "quickly enough" are probably delayed.

For instance, the "hi rez" textures pack (did you seriously zoom on the Jedi textures ? They're among the most hideous the game has), the Anti aliasing, depth of view etc...

All of that will be focused on LATER, because right now they're trying to make their game actually run properly the way it launched, before "changing" it.

Thing is, for the Jedi, we got easily the most underwhelming class of the game. And I think that on their priority list, "adding hoodless pieces" and "fixing the jedi butt" etc... are probably THE LAST thing they would take care of.

As it ruins some fun but doesn't ruin "the game", per say. At least they're taking care of Kira.

I think, if the game had launched without all those problems (there's also that nasty ability delay and animation stutter they need to work on before the free days pass), they would have made a "big" update at the end of the month, with operation, flashpoint, and new content. In that, there probably would have been all those beautiful pieces you found.

It creates interest from the player you know. "oh I'll need that piece it looks great ! Aw but my sub is over. Oh it's just around 10 dollars, not a big deal !" Classic marketing.

Though as I said, with everything that is WRONG with the game engine, I think that particular "Jedi Knight" class will have to wait for a bit. And I'm sure it will be the first to see changes when they take care of this kind of issues. :/

I don't think it's that easy as adding "robes to the vendors", they probably have their content planned way ahead (actually they said so).

So yeah, in the meanwhile, goggles or cape.

Your logic is airtight and depressing. I still hold out hope that if they realize how bad this issue bothers us (and 26,000 views on the old thread is a pretty good start) they will prioritize it higher, and you and the other Hood down die hards are a huge help.

But what is the cape option you speak of? I can't stand the LaForge goggles, or a massive and useless Trooper backpack, so I am in orange moddable Sentinel chest piece from level 11 and just eating the armor hit. The last set out of Tython/first set in Coroscant.

What is the cape option? Is it another Sentinel piece?

Also, if and when the new FP and Op James Ohlen teased comes into the game, that means new gear, and it should be at least an occasion to put the iconic armor from the cover of the game, the character creation screen, and the Class Video to be put in the game for Guardians. If there were to be one Sentinel armor added in as well, what would make you guys happy?

I personally like the capes. Avoids the huge-butt syndrome and you can see the pants you wear.

Sadly all the heavy (and medium that I've seen) capes past about level 25 are ALSO hooded with the hood up.

So I'm currently doing the Geordie LaForge thing, which looks good enough I guess. Can see my hair and most of my face, if not my eyes. (And the visor doesnt line up with the eyes either.... but anyway...) So there's no graphical or engine based reason why these currently hood-up capes/robes in game cant be given a toggle, since they ALREADY have a toggle: if player=twilek or player=wearing visor then skip the hood drawing part. Add in a if playerhattoggle=off in there, and you are done.

Can someone list ways to get goggles? I know there are some from the Hoth commendation vendor, but I don't want to wait until level 40+.
