Open your character panel ("C") and press the button shown in this screenshot. The bottom of the panel changes, and you should check the "Hide Head Slot" button.

EDIT: er, sorry, *this* screenshot: https://i.imgur.com/xeRQNk6.jpg

Point of Lore: the Miraluka are not blind. They see with the Force instead of with eyes.

"Influence", not "Loyalty". And no, Influence is not "just as good". It is significantly better. Just rank it up and you'll be just fine.

No, anything, almost, can drop loot, even yellow-name "ambient" enemies. Strong and better (grey-white symbol = Strong, gold star = Elite, white/gold complex star = Champion or Boss or World Boss) have loot more often (except the ones that don't), but ordinary and weak foes can drop loot.

Any loot whose inventory item has a grey frame is "junk", and it ususally says so ("This item is of no use but can be sold to vendors" or something like that) on its tooltip. And yes, I'd like to see the sell-to-vendor price of loot when I'm *not* at a vendor.
