Oh, I didn't notice that there were gloves, too. Must've been an oversight on my side.

Absolutely love the armour; whomever came up with this deserves a bonus and should be promoted because this armour is so unique and the gear fits in quite well with multiple other armour sets.

I'm not planning on every purchasing the entire set for one character, rather I'm going to spread the gear out across my legacy. It makes sense for my 55s to have some sort of structural damage given everything they've been through so I'm going to throw in a missing leg here, and a missing arm there!

Kudos to the artists and team that implement this. I'm usually quite specific in what I want my characters to look like and frankly there is not enough customization yet to make me entirely happy but this was a curve ball I wasn't expecting and is now an essential part of several characters.

Ord'os (Lvl.55 Sorcerer), Naresa (Lvl.53 Operative), Jagrafess (Lvl.19 Marauder)
Nydus (Lvl.54 Shadow), Toclafane (Lvl.27 Guardian)

One very good reason to get this full set bound to one toon is collections. If you have the full set on one toon it goes into your collections and that character can get endless copies of it for themselves and their companions. Pay 600 CC and you can unlock it for all your toons account wide. I have the full set on my BH and now I just have to stay out of the appearance designer and save the CC to unlock it for the rest of my account :P

I'm not just picky on what my characters look like but their companions too. I love the collections and mix/matching pieces of different pieces from my collections. It has saved me quite a bit of credits on companion looks.

off topic but do all the new armor sets cost 600 CC for them to become an account unlock?

It depends on how many pieces are in the set, some are not much at all.

Must admit I love this set. Have it on my 3 55's. The best though is my female smuggler with a white/white dye kit. Looks very Bjork if people remember the All is full of love video. The only problem is the white/white kits are expensive to get, for those looking for a cheaper option the orange/white also looks great with only a little orange accent and they are much easier to get hold of.

I like it in white too, although I can't afford the dye. Mix/matched with the white Gree armor gives some really cool looks though

This.
This Cash shop armor is approx what I dared to assume Cyborgs, as a race would have been like from day 1. Set looks great and I much like it. I bet/hope we get more similar cash shop items sold for cash for people who like giving EA some more of their cash so cash can cash the cash as they Monetize the Players.

Since graphics are already there, it would(have) be(en) fair if they'd add this stuff as part of Cyborg customization options.



But seriously, it looks great.

I'm all for Cartel Coins and the Cartel Market. I'm all for supporting a game that is very enjoyable for me. I am a subscriber, and have been one since pre-launch. I also have no problems spending a few extra bucks for some Cartel Coins when I can afford it. If that is what it takes to keep the game around for a long time I have no problems at all with it. It's better than the options of just shutting it down because it wasn't making money or putting it on maintenance with no more updates at all. If you enjoy the game this should not bother you. If you don't enjoy the game... well that is another story all together.

Look back at my earlier posts on this subject.

Look back at my earlier posts on this subject.

Wetther or not such heavy emphasis on cash shop and monetizing subscribers is a necessary evil is very questionable. It most assuredly serves best interests of remaining Devs and EA both to sell this idea to players.

I have a huge problem with significant majority of new, good looking gear being available for dollars. I'm glad you do not!

Let us assume group of invest bankers, large corporations and their lobbyists own my country. Because of greedy stunts and mistakes they have pulled,my country begins crashing and burning. I am told a bail out of massive scale is needed to salvage things. I can believe this bail out is necessary. Unlike groups previously mentioned, I don't own my country. Thusly, It is me who ends up having to pay for it. It doesn't mean I shouldn't despise this Bail Out or the reasons why **I** ended up as the payer of mistakaes, greed, miscalculations and selfishness taking place long before end-user.

TOR launched in dysfunctional condition and under completely unreasonable expectations. BW got 200 millions+++ of cash to toy with when developing it. Yet game was unfinished, uninspired and misliked by many. Instead of being forced to pull some old fashioned hard work and top notch quality service to redeem things[Rift. Eve Online.] , they get to buy(or rather,sell) their way out of the hairy situation. I have no problem at all in being pissed off and disappointed about all this despite liking many aspects of the game.

SW:TOR is in all likelyhood most expensive video game ever made. Idea that EA would give up on it or 'pull the plug' just because it is " dangerously close" to not making any profit is ridiculous. It is clear "we need a new way of doing things" was a present thought though. Comunity's warm reception of getting to pay 10 dollah for Holo XCmas trees and Revan bathrobes ensured the easiest, most low effort, most greedy and most insulting way to subscibers was the right call. We, as community, most certainly didn't make EA work for their sub fees, so to speak. We are easy.
