Costello, i completely agree with you sir. I have been unimpressed with the cartel store to date also. with the exception of the axes (which are ugly imo) and a few of the hidden "rare" items (ie crystals, speeders, pets) in the over glorified cartel packs (total waste of cc's) nearly all the "armor" they have put on the CM has been retooled from stuff i have actually worn in game, i'm sorry, but taking ingame items, retooling them into sets with a little recoloring does not constitute something as "new" at all. if i can get it in game for free, why in my right mind would i pay that much for it on the cartel market? i'm a subscriber, i've also been playing since the prelaunch early access, and i'm seriously disappointed with the direction this game has went. the developer attitude now seems to be "lets put more shinys on the cartel market it to blind them from the game crippling bugs we dont seem to want to fix"

Such a waste of what could have been a wonderful game...

Let us work for it in game otherwise what's the point of gaming, I want to grind etc. not take out my credit card and buy crap.
Usually there are two different teams of devs for this kind of stuff, stop going all "omg pls stop with the CM and fix bugs", there is a dev/designer for CM, and other devs fixing bugs, stop wasting space on forum if you don't know what you're talking about.

Let's think for a bit, they introduced CM in the f2p so that they can actually pay their devs, if they STOP with CM, they cannot pay the devs, if the devs are not payed...guess who will fix your bugs...oh yes, NOBODY (the caps lock is not screaming, it's just keywords so that you could understand better).
And at the end of fear...OBLIVION!!

Don't kill the CM, just stop selling crap on it.

Now see... On my poor Light side Inquisitor... Who did not want to look emo... I had to suffer with having to put up with EMO hoods on everything even though I didnt want them. For someone like me. The lack of " hoods up " is just fine. To the other hood complainer guy on here that said much the same as you but also added the icon should match... Did he expeirement first and learn that you can preview the armor to find out for sure. I most certainly did before investing Cartel Coins. Which basically represent real money. Even if mine were gained by sub and preorder bonus. I am aware each is "cash". Kinda cash.

I am shocked and amazed though, none of the agent jakets with the shorter colars... the ones that dont look like garbage on a twilek with massive head tail clippage made it to the Cartel Shop. No I don't like the colar-less PINK/BIEGE one. Were talking a male, body size 3, dark blue, matcho if slightly lovably goofy scoundrel here. Plus Blue and Pink?! He's not in junior high school... he's a licenced Republic Privateer for cripes sake! ;p

Please put up some more AGENT gear. Thanks. Oh... also both the smuggler and agent goggles would be nice. Sometimes I find myself wanting one or the other on either side.... and being forced to just the one kind.

Also, Blessing to Bioware and the cartel market for my Sith Sorcerer to finally be able to run arround in something other then a skirt... and have a hood down robe with a shidge of armor on it for appearances. Very, very nice with the various pants avaible from the flying mission vendors and the balmoran hands and feet. Trust me... Try this look all.


PS: There is some gear that drops very early... a grey cris cross the chest vest sort of deal... very poor mans look, that looks pretty good on most charactersa and would really solve the "something simple with no embelishments" type of player. It's white/green gear. Actually there's more then one decent white and green look that there are no moddable versions of. Really quite a shame. The market or adding more synthweaving recipes could repair that neglect. Ta Ta

And does it really cost that much? Say if a subscriber purchased it..aren't they getting some Cartel Coins to begin with, so its not REALLY 18 dollars. All in all it comes down to it being a want. Not a need. I can understand some of the grief that is felt with it being a single char speeder (I refuse to call these mounts) and I would definately expect that if it is popular that we'll be seeing different colors made available. (Weekly Vehicle quest anyone?) But all in all..if the consumer is willing to purchase it, I'd say its a solid idea.

1st) If the coins came from your monthly bonus or straight up purchased you still have money invested in them.

So now looking at coin cost low end 90 for $1, the best deal 137.5 coins for $1
making mount cost $13.09 to $20.

I do not see any issues with them keeping this price range for a single character, like most said its within the standard. However I will not be buying any till they add a way to buy them for an account for say 3k to 3.5k cartel coins. Making the cost if you buy the better value coins roughly $22 to $25.45 for account wide mount this too would also be within the standard cost. Giving two examples WoW & Tera both offer account wide mounts for $25, Tera also sells single character mounts at $15 showing they could keep what they have just add the other option.

You cannot trade the armor set to other people until that timer runs out. The armor set itself is permanent. Equipping it will make it bound(regardless of when the timer runs out).
