By this, do you mean there is a vanity / appearance tab where you can choose the look of your character without affecting stats?

Disappointing.

As far as "finding an orange armor with the hood down," if you are a Jedi Guardian, you can't. There aren't any until level 50 as far as I know from beta.

Just level after level of hoods you can't remove, that make you look bald, that cover up the character you created in a game that's thirty percent close ups of your avatar.

Where are the looks BW advertised on the Jedi Progression video? Or the cover of the game? Or these, which have been on the Holonet for over a year:

I would like to see the face of my Jedi as BW suggested I would.

I actually wanted my hood to show up, but all i get is a goofy looking bald head.
You are not alone. Bothers me to hell and back again.
I really hope they fix it soon.

No.

Custom Armor has full mod slots that can be upgraded from basically 8-50 if you keep all the mods up to date.

Ran into that today. Looks dumb. I went Shadow and was really looking forward to hoods! Would be nice to keep my headdress at least. Might have to re-roll for race...

So, a ton more people in now. And so far, the same all hooded gear is dropping, so I'd love if anyone could let me know if they have any Guardian Heavy Armor gear without a hood covering your face after level 13?

The only armor set I know of so far is the level 50 pvp gear. Is there anything besides that? I would love to know about the armors in my post a couple above, but until they make a hood toggle, I am happy for any lead there is. I really don't want to stare at a hood for the whole game.


Also, can anyone confirm that if you equip a helmet and select hide helmet, it pushes the hood down?

Thanks!

Yup, pretty disappointed too. Checked out all the gear at the synthweaving trainer and there's maybe a total of 5 unique looking chest pieces, the rest are recolorizations of the same 5, and they ALL have hoods. For a game where 50% of it is cutscenes with close-ups, why was this overlooked? I want to see the character I created up close.

They all have hoods? NOOOO!!!! Synthweaving was my next place to look. I just have to hope that some non hood chest pieces drop somewhere in the game.

Why did the Devs show us three years of non-hooded Guardians in video after video and screen shot after screen shot, only to put none of that armor in the game? If hoods are so great, why did they put every single Jedi on Tython's hood down? Why can't I look like them? Why can't I look like the guy on the front of the game box?

Can i ask, who here is at end game? or even past level 35 for that matter? gear is something to be achieved in an mmo. Complain about aesthetics later on, in end game when content has been explored. don't expect all your goodies right out the door. this is an MMO. go work for it.
