The point is we wanted to see at least a little more effort and something a little closer to what a non force user class would actually wear.

So what I'm getting from you is that it's okay to design mediocre end-game armor because you already have your look, and it doesn't really matter what any of that stuff looks like since you're just going to rip the mods out regardless. Is that about right?

Also, just because you're fine with mediocrity, doesn't mean that the rest of us are. This is mostly about taste, but when I hear hundreds of people on my server, other servers, in my guild, in my alt's guilds, on Facebook, and strangers that I meet that play TOR (a couple of guys at a breakfast joint I frequent) agree that their gear design is lackluster at best, then there's a problem.

I think if they just threw out a few designs in between large patches, or expansions and had the community vote on them, then there would be more satisfaction with the gear.

My biggest point is, they shouldn't design the gear with the idea that people are just going to rip the mods out. That breeds apathy in design.

I really stopped caring about the look of the new end game armor. It all looks horrid and they do this **** on purpose to make people want to buy the good looking armor on the CC store.

The armor you see on PTS is just a placeholder.
But i am amazed how good it looks, finally Blizzard made a right step to improve World of Warcraft armour...oh WAIT!

whatever I liked the rakata stuff, at least you could see the actual though and effort put in them, you got to admit compared to the new gear that mirrors the opposite faction and the stuff that looks nothing like what a trooper uses or a smuggler, I can honestly say I want the rakata gear look back, I loved those sets, they were not bad, keep in mind the gear had to look star wars while at the same time unique, such as sith juggernauts wearing a lot of armor into combat the gear reflected that, the agent would wear an advanced helmet and it reflected that, the sith inquisitor would wear something with bold colors in a display of both power and opulence, and it did just that. The point is, anyone see that amount of though go into designing obroan?
