It also kinda reminds me of the box you could hide in in Metal Gear.

So I was fiddling around with the crate-o-matic I got yesterday, and it doesn't seem like it has much practical use.

1. You can't use it during combat.

2. Outside of combat, you can't move around in the crate (though, as I read somewhere else, you can change your outfit while inside).

3. The crate does not shield you from damage. Nor does it apply any stealth mechanic as far as I can tell.

4. If you hop into the crate, send your companion at mobs, and your companion dies - the mobs will target you even if you're in the crate.

5. If you hop into the crate, and a patrol passes by, the patrol will attack you.

6. Using any abilities while inside the crate will immediately pop you out of the crate.

I do have to say though, that it is rather hilarious to be in front of a GTN terminal with a bunch of people nearby and just pop into a crate.

Also, a note - even though the item tag still says "Binds on Equip" in my inventory, I can not sell it on the GTN. Haven't tried mailing or trading it yet though (I am kind of afraid of losing it).

edit: fiddled around some more

Here's something worth necroing the thread for: a former guildy of mine "Tyranis-Vex" on Jung Ma just got the crate from the final boss of HM Kaon Under Siege. Lucky nerf herder.

Just got one on ToFN for 17 mil... I am mad at my GM who urged me to do it now xD
*Best Dressed Jedi of 2014* http://mmo-fashion.com/tor-fashion-contest-results/

Almost 3 years old and there are still no iconic / classic / traditional / prequel-style (pick any!) Jedi robes in the game! How come?

Also how about letting players wear the robes that are already in the game but not accessible to them?
