You can't work for something that isn't there.

I am genuinely asking whether hood down gear exists for Guardians AT ALL, at any level. It's not a matter of asking for goodies at the door, it's a matter of whether there any goodies in the entire house.

If these armors, with the hood down, are in the game at any level:

http://www.swtor.com/media/screens/miraluka-0

http://www.swtor.com/media/screens/miraluka-1

I'll be okay with that.

But I also disagree with you that your point applies to a hood toggle. People with helmets can look at their character's head easily. There is a hide helmet feature included. People with hoods cannot.

This game is almost a third cut scenes with close ups. I would like to not look bald under a hood in every one, as that is not what I selected my character to look like. This thread is not about wanting the coolest gear now, it is about wanting my character to look the way BW suggested he would during three years of marketing, and wanting a feature that smugglers, BH's, and Troopers have with the touch of a button.

I wish we could trade! I haven't seen any Guardian hood down gear after level 11.

At level 17 now as a Jedi Sentinal.

All the dam robes I have are hood up only and the hood is part of the chest item so it can't be toggled like other headwear.

Makes me wonder why I spend time in the character creation menu and selecting a hairstyle etc. I don't want my dam hood up all the time!
Solo shot first

Do you know what level those models where? what content they were being shown at? its impossible to know whats entirely in the game at this point. not to mention expansions and such. i cant comment on the toggle, as i too would have enjoyed the option. but you cant hold it against them for having certain quarks and such. wow didnt get an appearance tab till last month. DCUO did do a great job on styles, but game play, environment and many other aspects are lacking. its an mmo in its infancy, thats performing at levels surpassing others. be patent, if in three months we cant find you a hoodless/down piece somewhere, ill eat my hood.

Like I said, I checked out the synthweaving trainer and looked at the stuff that we can craft all the way up to level 49, so yes, those 5 unique chest pieces with hoods on are all we have to look forward to for us crafters. Maybe there are other rare drops along the way that look different and have hoods down, but the fact of the matter is currently there is no sign of hood-down chest pieces in the foreseeable future.

it is the beginning of a game, not even an expansion. rest assured, these "recipes" will be added too.

It doesn't really bother me that there is not a toggle hood option, but it is annoying that Twi'lek's get no hood at all. I really hope this is fixed in the near future.

I would really like a Dev to say whether or not this will ever be fixed. I'm sure I'm not the only one playing a Twi'lek that's hesitant to get too far due to the consideration of rerolling.
