We Seem To Be Made To Suffer

Before we go any further, let’s all just take a good long look at the following picture of the new tier 2 gear available in the upcoming 1.2 patch.  Sitting comfortably?  Here it is, Imperial side first.

Not entirely sure what’s going on with the Sith Inquisitor, their Tier 1.2 gear seems to be “a purple fart”, but it could just be a poorly timed special ability going off.  The other classes seem to be sporting the usual spiky/badass look you expect from the Empire.  The shoulders even seem to be relatively under control this time around.  Now for the Republic…

The whole “Get the shoulders under control!” theme seems to be extending to the Republic side too, the Consular in particular has gone from one extreme (My shoulderpads are a launch platform for moon missions) to the other (Dude, where’s my shoulders?).  Troopers look as badass as Troopers always do, Jedi Knights seem pretty HOLY FUCK WHAT’S THAT ON THE SMUGGLERS HEAD GET IT OFF BEFORE IT KILLS HER!!!!

Really, Bioware?  Seriously?  You couldn’t just go with a pair of pants, a low-slung holster and a vest?  That’s really all the Smugglers actually want, you know?  Instead we spent this entire raid cycle looking like this:

And we’re now condemned to spending the next god-only-knows-how-long looking like Beaker from The Muppet Show.


The good news is I’ll at least be able to strip the mods out of that stuff and stick it in the gear I levelled up with.

That I got from Coruscant.

At level 15.

    I actually kinda like the sage look thats going on there, that gear I have right now with the ice-cream scoops all over it..i’m not a fan. When I’m riding on my speeder, it just looks so un-aerodynamic, the gloves alone must cause terrable drag and muscle strain. Ask any biker here if he’d like to put airbrakes on his gloves to go riding, see what they say.

    On the other hand, yeah, my smuggler has had the same chest since Esseles at lvl 11 with the mods switched out, so i’d rather not have what I can only imagine is some of of kitchen applaince on her poor face.

    Yeah I like the Consular thing they got going on there too. Looks a bit like an 80’s Maddonna video. Try to picture it without the hood but with the hair in a scrunchie instead. See what I mean? 🙂

    What I find funny about off of this is smugglers complaining. Have any of you ever seen the Powertech PVP helm. It looks worse than that thing.

  4. Calli says:

    Actually no I haven’t. But for it to look worse than that Smuggler Tier 2 monstrosity it’d have to be the equivalent of wearing a fat middle-aged drag queen on your head, and even then it’d still be a close call.

    Actually, I’d pay good money to see that.

    Edit: Okay, just Googled it. And while I do sympathise that you have to look like General Grevious, there is no way in hell that’s less intimidating than Beaker from the Muppets. :p
