I expected more from the last pack of this shipment, I guess I will wait for Shipment 6 to buy a hypercrate then

Well, let’s hope then. I wasn’t impressed with Shipment 5 in general to be honest, excluding the various animal mounts which were pretty cool, and a couple of speeders.

i seriously hate when people say that, they are not the same, the helmet on section x is a generic helmet and the chest is backpack-less which in my opinion looks stupide without it

Because if they did that, then nobody would buy this bulky jetpack later.

Gotta sell the less desirable ones first, THEN make people spend again on the nicer one.

I can see logic in that, but its been 3 years and we still gets some ugly sets and rarely some nice mounts (but now they overusing walker and recolor old mounts)

^ this x’s 5 and don’t forget the many hues shades of the jetpack. This one is vanilla. We are all on the hook until they have a black with purple/red jet fire.

Because existing non-functional JPs on BH chests would clip through. That’s why it’s so huge. The only reasonabel solution would be to make a JP you can toggle visibility on/off with.

Yea like others I have been missing my jetpack since SWG closed down. And in that game you actually worked your ass off to get it, not buy it off some market. Im sure these will go for 444.3 billion credits like everything else that is grossly overpriced, but we shall see. BW should make it a common drop just to piss off all the credit gougers out there.

It’s prolly gonna be 3 mill at most, and ypu could always just buy packs to get it. I promise if you really do want it, it’s not gonna take you that long to accrue credits or cash. Hell, lots of people probably play this game daily and buy packs and still have some life outside it all.

gonna drop some cheese on this pack. 3 dope mounts and cool npc’s to put in my tattoine bar so i don’t feel so lonely on my dead server.

I’m all over the new Vorantikus color. Other than that, only thing I’m definitely gonna get is the title. SO AWESOME.

Lol yea anyone who can’t do something some people can are scrubs! Look how much better I feel about myself for putting others down! I feel so much better about living in my mom’s basement now!

Really? We finally get a jetpack mount and it’s an oversized, double-rocket version of Fett’s? Why can’t Bioware make anything correctly proportioned? This isn’t World of fucking Warcraft!

Don’t worry, I’m not crazy, I just don’t like how Bioware feels the need to make almost every armor set, weapon, and vehicle absurdly over sized and not at all proportional. The shoulders on my Commando’s armor are bigger than the boots, gloves, and helmet combined…

Yes! That Jet Pack matches my trooper Vanguard’s armor, perfectly! XD Even the size works due to the body type I use.

Hate the jet pack, but I am gonna get it. Why? Coz of the feel. And I am not gonna do ops like crazy just to get the Wings of the Architect, lol. OVERSIZED!

Well after getting Conquerer of the Dread Fortress early May, i think we got around 25 mounts since then. Last one was taken yesterday in a 43 minute run. We dont play SWTOR that much, hence the low number of mounts.
What you consider oversized we sell for 30 million a pop :D.

what you sell for 30 million a pop looks like an unused prop from a bad hellraiser movie, good luck with your pollution of the game with a lame un-star wars looking HM hero mount, congrats

Given mounts dont scale this will look fine on my body size 3 male hunter. no doubt this is just the first of many jet packs.

The weapons will just be the same models as the apprentice pack buthe with blue lighting effects rather than yellow.

Here’s an idea: add a Legacy perk that allows Rocket Boost to be used as a mount toggle on top of usable as a speed boost out of combat.
Now *that* would sell like hot cakes!

Oh wow! A jetpack actually reminds me of Star Wars. It has no sorcerer skirt, no magician wings, it’s no peter pan pirate design. It’s really Star Wars, not World of Warcraft on acid.

Maybe BioWare’s Art Team did get it? This is a Star Wars game, not the Hobbit…

Yea man how insane are they to not cater to your exact definition of what is or isn’t star wars! What a bunch of jerks for fleshing out established cosmetic themes and designs that have been part of star wars EU for decades, that you have never bothered to know anything about. They should really just stick to what you specifically know and consider to be thematically star wars, you tell em boss!

Just remember that mount sizes don’t scale with body type. So this looks huge in a BT2 Female, it might look normal on a BT3 male

I was just going to post the same thing. 🙂 I don’t mind recolors so much as long as they are making the items look better. These are some of the best re-texturing they’ve done.

MY THOUGHTS EXACTLY. Sorry for yelling but finally! Someone who actually looks forward to recolors instead of griping about them like a spoiled child. I agree, these colors are pretty neat. Can’t wait to see them in-game.

I love re-colors honestly, I have very specific/narrow tastes in the color of mounts and armor so I never mind re-skins.

yeah, i’ll never understand some of the design choices by bioware or whoever thinks this (insert questionable item/tool/mount) looks good/natural etc.

they’re meant to have that capability, i know jetpacks in star wars have rpgs on the top, but this just looks ridiculous i think, jetpacks have to be aerodynamic and minimalistic as much as possible. Not boring mind you, custom paintjob would be as far as you could go without compromising functionality.

Question is: will the rocket pack mount be placeable as a deco in strongholds?

Because so far the Wings of the Architect is not.

Most of them. But I wouldn’t be surprised if we see some clipping.
Some backpacks are the size of two fridges.
😉

Yeah, depends on the type of armor. I was thinking of most BH chestpieces with the ‘pack over it would fit but some do have backpacks that would present a major clipping issue.

A nexu would be awesome! We might definitely see one sometime judging by all the other creatures they threw in the game as mounts.

The more natural tones of this next vorantikus mount are a lot more appealing. I never liked the vivid blue appearance of those creatures, it looks a lot less cartoonish and more menacing with subdued, natural colouring. I don’t think I’d ever want to ride one, though.

Yeah, I’m definitely digging the more natural look of this one over the blue one. Might actually have to go for this one, been wanting a large creature mount…there’s plenty of rancors running around already, but haven’t seen many Vorantikus. 🙂

Possible thought on the jetpack size…Remember how some mounts preview larger than they actually are? Maybe the same is happening with the jetpack? At least I hope so. lol

That regen item looks awesome. The armor on the other hand is nothing I’d be interested in. Can’t wait to see some weapons. And I’ll have to see that jet pack in action. It’s a little bulky for my taste, but it may grow on me 🙂

am I the only one that cares that the cybernetic set was penned for all of the previous shadow packs and still hasn’t been released yet?

Wow those armours are a massive scare for my poor retinas; scary coloured mounts, too. Right now I would only opt for the regen item and pass on the rest (yes, including the jetpack)

The regen item looks like it doesn’t belong in SWTOR. Should go to some other game like Wildstar or what ever fairytale styled software.

I think I saw somewhere that Lord Scourge is getting a customization in this pack. Maybe that was just a dream though? Who knows.

It was datamined around the time of the first Shadow Pack. It looked like an older Scourge with the stitch like pattern lip jewelry for Purebloods. It’s supposed to be for this pack.

Finally a pack with some stuff that actually looks worth buying. I mean a jetpack mount its about time and the armor wasnt too bad either

Oh great.
We are getting at least 4 armour sets that are completely new and original.

And they all look like crap 🙁

Like that M1-4x skin and the revanite sorc-like armor on the bottom, as well as the slim hope I have of ever getting that jetpack. Looks like i’ll have to shell out a couple bucks on this after all. Let’s celebrate Rasta ‘Scourge! Crank that Bob Marley, get the steeldrum and lets make some jerk chicken!!!!

Pretty sure that’s not hair, it’s a Scourge Customization. That hairstyle already works on every species if I recall.

not liking the new armour sets, although i don’t like a lot of the armour sets, ah well, i’ll look forward to the next set of packs and hope they get a better armour designer 😛

ehh the mounts win again! the armor sure don’t.. All the bulky shit and big ass cuffs on the gloves. I was expecting an skimpy Revanite outfit to follow suit with other series of packs that always have skimpy stuff.. maybe the weapons will have light beams on them hopefully.

I lost faith on BW like 3 months ago (and I think it should’ve been so much earlier), they just don’t get it. Fck their armors, they are all mostly sht,,, 2nd one looks pretty decent but those shoulders… same mistake over and over. Get someone who understands aesthetics! Nvm, I know u won’t listen. The other stuff which is the same but dif. skin… ok… they look pretty decent too.

Why is it me and so msny more dont play this gambling game ? .. oh thats right no jedi armors only ugly shit.Funny after 3 years the greedy corporate pigs at bioware still dont take feedback.Meh what ever dont play this turd,just fun to point out how shit bioware managment is

And yet you “waste effort” to come in here and comment? And it’s not BioWare’s fault, cos EA holds the purse so they pull the strings. They say jump, BW guys say “how high?”. You can’t keep everyone happy, no matter what you do but at least they are trying, and their new content is at least fun and the new planets are great. There’s enough Jedi armour around anyways so use some of that.

No Jedi armors? There’s plenty of cloaks lying around. I’m pretty sure you get one before you leave your first planet.

Last I checked, there is a metric fuckton of different looks you can have. But if you’re really hung up about “Jedi armors”, like I said, there’s plenty of regular ass cloaks lying around.

There are piles of plain cloth jedi robes, robes with little armor, robes with ornaments, robes with more armor, cloaks, hoods, plain leather boots… You checked the Collections in the recent two years? Blind.

poor scourge, looks retarded

that assault canon is gonna be really pricey if i wanna have it but the m1-4x finally a reall skin for him and i want that regen item its so cool ^^

Enter ” the grapefruit crystal”…. and finally they introduced some strange rotation on the barrels of the RH35-Assault cannon

No… I can see all the snark about the Jedi wielding “Fleshlightsabers” filling general chat now…

Is Bioware in a contest to make the ugliest MMO gear in history? Because 5 of the 6 gear sets look like something a 4 yr old designed with crayons. How in heck can gear THAT ugly end up in a game? I just don’t get it…

Please indulge me – let me see an armor set you’ve designed yourself. Im guessing you’re at least 5, so you have them beat there. And you can use any writing utensil you’d like or software. Go ahead, I’ll wait.

Interesting new armor – not the whole sets but parts – looking forward to mix and match for new outfits. Red Lergo and new Vorantikus look great!

Everyone is waiting for the Jet Pack mount but whats up with that rotating light saber?

enough with the cybernetic armour sets they look horrible and dont sell eather. whats the odds that will be the main armour you will get in the new boxset with a scattering of the nice ones

I’d say this new series looks the best so far. Headpiece aside, it actually looks like a cyborg, where as the other series have looked more like droids with weird parts of skin here and there.

Some of them were uglier than others; the Series 617 had what looked to be intentionally flesh-colored-plastic-looking upper and lower arms and thighs around the mechanical joints. But I _really_ wish that there would be someone assigned to the Bioware art department that would be in all the meetings where they present new gear sets carrying a four-pound mallet and, if the person creating the gear can’t give a reason for _why_ the hands and shoulders are grossly asymmetric other than “We think it looks cool”, whacks them unconscious and sends the set back with some _other_ art department person to fix. There is, for example, not _one_ of the cybernetic gear sets for which you have two basic skeletally mechanical hands like the right hand on the B-100 set above without having some bulky and unexplained wrist wart like the left hand of the B-100 set on one or both hands.

Right… To approach your whole “asymmetric” deal…
The answer for that is simply; variety. We don’t have two item slots for each individual glove or boot, or a slot for shoulders or capes as other MMOs sometimes have.
Bioware was trying (and thus far arguably failed) to appeal to cyborg players by making several cyborg sets that would “cover all the bases” so more players could try to achieve the cyborg look they wanted for themselves.
As I said before, the previous serious looked like 90% droid rather than a cyborg. This new series looks much more realistic and common as this is what would be under a synthetic layer of skin, and I’d reckon future sets will have less of that bulky stuff you don’t seem so fond of and perhaps better symmetry.

It’s not the ‘bulky stuff’ in and of itself — for example, I use the Stalker gloves with my Vanguard, because they contribute to the ‘walking wall’ image by making him look larger and more solid — it’s that the bulk is slapped onto one side of the gear. Take the Tulak Hord set. If both shoulders matched on the chest, regardless of which one you duped across, it would look better than the current ‘one of each’ design. And there seems to be no reason for the big flange on the left arm; I considered it for a Commando, because the shoulder and wrist flange looked like additional armor for the front arm when holding an assault cannon, but for a Sith I just don’t understand the reasoning for it. The Ceremonial set, on the other hand, has large, subjectively unwieldy flanges on the shoulders and hands, but they’re on _both_ shoulders and hands; I’ve seen real-world ceremonial clothing that was equally unwieldy-looking; it’s a plausibly-uncomfortable set.

I agree that the B-100 set gives a more ‘person with cybernetic reconstruction’ look than the other sets; too many of the earlier sets, with the legs, gave the impression of ‘we were able to save the leg, but not the pelvis, but we stuck the leg back on anyway’ reconstruction. And the ‘90% droid’ is a fair assessment, too — I have a character with the Series 212 chest and legs, Series 505 feet, Series 617 hands, and the Revanite Pursuer head that I’m playing _as_ a droid. The B-100 is the first set that is more ‘Six Million Dollar Man’ than ‘Robocop’; it’s ‘person with mods’, not ‘fragment of body with complete life support and reconstruction’. But I dislike having a greeblie stuck on something for the purpose of making that object more visually busy, and the plate on the set’s left hand doesn’t look as if it had a reason for being there that wouldn’t be served better by having one on the other hand, too..

The most common reasoning for having a large gauntlet on the left hand is so you can guard with it. This is especially true in Tulak Hord’s armor, a Sith who was a master in lightsaber combat. It’s quite apparent. He doesn’t put any weight on his right arm, his lightsaber arm, because not only would it slow his strikes but also because the lightsaber is fairly capable at defending against attacks as well.
It is his left side that would be most vulnerable, hence the additional armor. More importantly, the large gauntlet allows him to block and deflect lightsaber strikes to his “vulnerable” side.
“Why bother guarding with your arm when your lightsaber can easily do the same with less risk?” If his left arm can guard against an opponent’s attack, that leaves his own weapon free to quickly retaliate with a strike of his own.
As someone invested in Sith play and general swordplay, I don’t find it hard at all to think up a reason. If you need a real world example, you can wiki a buckler.

The only bit that i might think of using would be the feet or hands if i was desprite for something temp in my mog set. But i would just not bother

I really like the Ceremonial Guard Armor Set and the Jetpack (of course)…
Guess i have to get some packs there…

jetpack looks cool. However, I believe that it should be a reward in some type of long mission like SHROUD 🙂

Rotating barrel gatling gun: Absolutely awesome

Rotating lightsaber hilt: I don’t even……what? Lol

I love the blasters in this “RK series” and I’m very eager for March 10th to arrive so I can hear the change they made to the blaster sounds

I love the SOA regen too.

Unfortunately I’m unimpressed with all the armors. But overall quite a good mix of items 🙂

You’d think all of these rotating barrel miniguns would be awesome for the commando, but I just don’t think it works. So many of the commando’s abilities are not blaster bolts, they’re mortar rounds and beams/arcs of electricity and stuff.

If this is the theme they’re planning on going with, these ‘miniguns’, I think they should re-animate all of those abilities so that they’re either thrown grenades, or fired from the trooper’s gauntlet or something.

I’m not quite sure which Commando abilities you mean ? Demolition Round, Boltstorm, Full Auto, Vortex Bolt, Hammer Shot, Grav Round…. all are straight (curved) shots from the barrel. Seems like you actually haven’t played the class, right ? Or at least not past the first few levels….
Pseudo “star wars” science here – nothing you can’t achieve with some magnetic fields putting the ammunition into a spin

What I actually would like, is the shots NOT flying off sideways or upward towards the target while moving and the gun actually pointing at the target.

Seems like you didn’t take the time to actually read what I wrote. I have played commando to 55.

“So many of the Commando’s abilities are not blaster bolts, they’re mortar rounds and beams/arcs of electricity and stuff.”

Examples: Explosive round, Grav Round, Pulse Cannon, Mortar Volley, Electro-Net.

All of these are abilities that are fired from the gun, but have no business being fired from the barrel of a rotating barrel-style weapon. They’re not bullets or blaster bolts; they’re arcing mortar-style projectiles, beams of electricity, and so on.

magnetic rail gun acceleration…? Rail gun barrels located around a central grenade launcher barrel ?

And honestly, you do expect realistic science-based projected ammunition in the Star Wars universe ? In a setting with laser-based melee weaponry, with obviously no energy management problems ? Where twin handguns do the same amount of damage as a gas-tank sized heavy weapon ? I regularly laugh about my body type 2 Scrapper Smuggler beating up robots, rancors or the underlurker ten times her size with her bare fists….

Star Wars (especially TOR) is simply technically coated fantasy, so please, rein in the “wish for realism” and stop wondering how it works.

What do magnets and railguns have to do with firing mortar shells that fall in a parabolic arc, and beams of electricity?

While I certainly don’t expect the sci-fi in Star Wars to be “realistic”, I do believe that things should at least be logical. One should be able to say “Yeah okay I can see where that could be happening.” And when they come up with things that don’t fit into that line of reasoning, we should call them on it.

Otherwise we’ll end up with stupid shit like this http://a.fastcompany.net/multisite_files/fastcompany/imagecache/inline-large/inline/2014/12/3039210-inline-i-4.jpg

he’s never going to live down that crossguard no matter how good the rest of the film might be

even the tryhards who put forth the theory that the T junction might be cortosis weaved to protect them from being cut off cant explain why the entire cross guard couldnt be made from that to make it safer for the user without it being a cutting blade

Even if I accept the dubious argument that it might prevent the opponent’s lightsaber from chopping your hands off, it doesn’t make up for the fact that you’re now much more likely to CHOP YOUR OWN HANDS OFF, not to mention any number of other self-inflicted injuries.

Those extra blades are just two more things for the user to have to worry about during a duel, which are typically prolonged encounters wherein the loser is the one who screws up first.

I am going to ask a very stupid question…
What the hell has happened to actual JEDI robes, you know the classic brown, clothe robes with none of this crap on the shoulders or metal freaking helmets, I mean really this SWTOR can we get basic robes.

Well… They’re in the game. They have been since the very beginning. I mean… You can’t exactly recycle “basic” robes that much. Just play the game and you’ll find quite a few without needing to spend cartel coins, and they’ve already released quite a few basic Jedi robes in the past for the Jedi wannabes in the Empire.
So… Yeah… They’ve already offered those basic robes.

I agree that a lot of them are in game, but not many good ones are on the CM. Most are goofy short sleeved ones or have something else wrong with them. Traya’s are just about the traditional iconic ones, though really some more like Old Ben’s would be good since people keep wanting them and the CM is sorta about making mulla.

not only are they already in game theres already been some on the CM.. how many more basic robe sets do you need? its a troll request. might as well be asking fore more darth vader style rebreathers as if there arent 50 different ones in the game already

Ignore this guy, he’s probably that guy from the forums that whines about jedi robes in every single post

Haha. Anyone else think that the Revanite Avenger Armor Set looks like Destro’s Iron Grenadiers from G.I. Joe?

Is the Ceremonial Guard inspired by something ingame, like an npc or what? It looks cool but I feel like I’m missing a reference maybe?

*facepalm* When I thought BioWare were going to release a jetpack mount for us bounty hunters I thought these, not a oversized scuba diving tanks..

This is horrendous, and anyone defending that art design decision under the bases of clipping needs their head examined by an interrogation probe droid! And no, this era does have slim jetpacks that are cable of prolonged flight of 70 meters vertically (might not look it, but they weigh a ton). They even have rocket packs cable of working in space smaller than this.

If they were going to make it this big, they could of made it look like a space marine jet. At least then it look half decent. Watching BW copy and paste other works it shouldn’t be a problem for them, as they lack all imagination anyways.

Except most SW jetpacks were meant to be used as the way to increase mobility on the battlefield, not as a means of long range transportation. And since that JT-2 one is the substitute for a mount (as in prolonged use) it has to be different.

Shae Vizla was running around higher than anything I have ever seen in the game with a small jetpack for a prolonged period of time.

Yet this giant ugly gas tank can only hover a few centimetres above the ground? That makes no sense? I don’t think BioWare implemented this design based around logic at all. Just another poor aesthetic decision as usual.

At least they added one though, even if it’s hideous. They might make future models that are more smaller hopefully.

And Clone Wars is what, 3000 years after the era the game is set in? I can definitely believe a difference being made in jetpack technology in that time.

3000 years means moot. Tech in star wars is based on the idea that technological advancement plateaus after a certain point and the tech in star wars has remained mostly unchanged for the past 10000 of years or so. Star Wars technology doesn’t make too many leaps in advancement at this point.

Take a look and compare them though, I see no difference whatsoever. The only giant big difference between Shae’s jetpack and Boba Fett’s jetpack is one has nothing attached and the other has a anti-vehicle homing missile.

There is no tech leap, just modified versions based on the individual using the equipment. Otherwise lightsabers and blasters would be obsolete by now.

And if this giant gas tank was a jetpack it would only be able to keep you in flight for a sustain period of time. Making the jet bigger doesn’t automatically make it a reliable transport/mount, it just makes it unnecessary heavy and impossible to wear on foot.

And you want more proof, take a look at the jump pack. It can only rocket the user into the air for about two seconds and then you descend back down. It also stated to have the worst mobility and control in air for the user, except from reaching great heights and length.

And that’s the Galactic Empire technology, so no this ugly crap design holds ZERO logic whatsoever, except a bad designer.

BioWare has a terrible art department with zero ambitions, except roll out content to make you drop cash. There is no logic behind this. BioWare could of easily adjusted it so it could be compactable and adjust the height of the mount so it hovers 4x-6x that of a rancor or walker mount.

And I gave you plenty of references that the jetpacks in the Old Republic era are on a similar technology level as the Clone Wars era.

Honestly regardless of if it fits or not, I know why they made it this way. I can say it by just looking at any of the gear IG. Backpacks and Jetpacks would clip through this jetpack. Obviously they aren’t selling you the jetpack you already have but a new one and it probably needs to be big so the smaller jetpacks on armours don’t clip through. I think that’s the only explanation. So it has more to do with the limitations with the engine and the graphics rather than anything else. I think you are over analysing this a bit too much, it’s probably not that they want to make it this big but that they have to.

Basically, do you re-write code so jetpacks already on chest pieces is hidden when this is used or the route where the mount is hidden if you have a jetpack chest piece (Which would take a lot of time for something that is just a flavour item that doesn’t affect gameplay). Or do you just make it big enough for nothing to clip through. Either way you twist or turn this you are going to upset someone, so they made it the most simple way they thought of that take up less dev time.

Like I said, this is just a flavour item, it’s not game breaking if this jetpack looks right or not. It’s about game mechanics vs dev time spent on making a single item that probably only a small portion of the people IG will use. People have been asking for a jetpack mount though so here it is, done to the best of their ability without straining resources on this thing, enjoy.

Only problem with that is BioWare never bothers trying to avoid clipping with mounts in the past. And I refuse to believe that BW thought about bounty hunters pack backs and jetpacks in the long run. This pack will end up on Jedi/Sith wannabes.

Most bounty hunter jets are so small you could probably just paste a smaller one on top without any drawbacks. And if you’re complaining it sticks out you can always wear a outfit without a backpack. Troopers cannon is going to clip either way.

PS. the original designs of this mount had giant homing missile rockets, probably to try and favour the fans of Boba Fett, except it backfired and people complained that it was too enormous.

So no, BioWare makes terrible copies and this mount is ugly big, because they are too lazy to come up with a decent idea for once.

Clone Wars VS Old Republic Era is total garbage both scientifically and fictionally. BioWare has clone trooper inspired helmets in this era for damn shakes! The Old Republic emblem is that of the Rebel Alliance and Jedi Order in this game.. *faceplam*

Anyone else want to try and argue on behalf of all mighty BioWare? You love the mount? Great.. You want to stuff in down my throat, and give me explanations why BioWare made it? No!!!

Good grief. I was just saying there are 3000 years in between. Even though the tech has plateued, there’s room for refinement and improvement of existing tech. After all, T7 is a forerunner for R2, and there are some size, tech, and model differences. Just making that point.

Looks a mixed bag to me, I am not really fussed about the Jet pack
mount, I like the look of Fearless Hunter’s Armor Set (maybe for Mako)
and Revanite Avenger Armor Set (for one of my sith) but will wait until I
see in game before judging completely (I liked the pictures of the
recent trooper armour, but the colour looked much different in game and
don’t like it now).

They almost get the assault cannon right except those stupid piston type
things on the side without that it would be perfect (assuming it sounds
OK).

if i’ve said it once, i’ve said 4 or 5 times, what’s with all the pink fucking crystals? i cannot see this big a need for them. i NEVER see them oot and aboot.

The RH 35 cannon: nicely done but could do without the moving pistons.

Sabers with spinning hilts: No. I feel the model was fine enough without with the spinning. Now it just looks wrong.

The jetpack: I thought the other model was better and would look much better scaled down.

RH-35 spinning barrel
RH-34 = RH-35 w/o spinning barrel
RH-33 = RH-34 w/o barrel on the end
RH-32 = RH-33 w/o blue highlights

Powered Exoguard Armor Set AKA: Iron-man Mark XIIIV Discarded prototype . Lol

The Blaster Rifle looks nice enough, The Emote: Worthy and Soa(regen) are the only thing im interested in, maybe the two mounts… And the Rishi pirate cannon from the Decorations, the rest, not really my cup of tea.

Here’s an idea… implement a “mount” that’s just a permanent “Rocket Boots” buff. “Rocket Boots” already automatically switches to jetpack animation for Bounty Hunters. It shouldn’t be difficult to code this “mount” to:

– If armor has jetpack, apply “Rocket Boots” jetpack animation
– If armor has no jetpack, apply “Rocket Boots” boots animation

They won’t get a cash cow with less effort required than that…

Of course, the obvious semantic flaw here (hence why I go for it) is that there is no such thing as “Rocket Boots”, and never has been. It is Rocket Boost, which is why those good heavy armors with jetpacks on the back of them (and proper dev work) show the jets there instead of at your feet. I agree with the general sentiment, though.

Am i the only one waiting for customization of every heavy droid in game for Forex?
All these recolours are so stupid.

Btw. Dulfy, what is rarity of items? How often each of these dropped for ya?

I opened around I guess 5 hypercrates. 3 jetpacks, 5 lergos, 3 gale cutters, and 1 Marrshwood mount. Only got 1 Soa regen item and I believe 2 of each emote

I thought about this. As far as I know there are no all pink dyes, all red dyes or all blue dyes for example…and suddenly it hit me. Of course! If you could have those colours you could dye skimpy armour fully pink/red/blue and make it look like your character is completely naked…I mean think of a chiss with all blue very skimpy armour…and of course that won’t do for a teen rating…

In-game images of the new Vorantikus and I like it even more now! Wasn’t a fan of the blue one from the Acolyte’s pack, I like the nice neutral/natural colors of this one.

First thing that came to mind when I saw that sith on the Vorantikus was “what the devil?!” That dude is creepy.

These new world of warcraft shoulder armors are great! I didn’t even know they had cartel packs in wow! I am so excited to wear these giant silly new shoulders on everything armors on my paladin. [/sarcasm]
Spinning gatling gun, cool. Spinning gatling saber…wut? Hot purple mounts, fun. Realisic colored animal mounts, nice.
And a regen item that makes me want to monologue and drop the floor.
What a confusing pack. Crap armor, everything else is kinda cool, or weird enough to appreciate. Cyborg Helmet made me giggle “Whats on tv I wonder….oh, its my face!” and the Mystic armor was almost star warsy, so they slapped a rearview mirror over the eyes to derp it up to stick with this packs theme.

At its worst its a mixed review, enhance your calm citizen. Its ok for people not to like things, and critical review could result in better things later. Those armors are bad and their designer needs to rethink the aesthetic. Most of them would be ok if the person making them knew when to quit.

Opened two hypercrates and scored the following other than the usual companion items and boosts. I go into these with zero expectations and open them for fun, to sell on GTN, or share with my guild. Overall I’m happy as usual. Really wanted the Soa regen, the Vorantikus, and the Jetpack…2 out of 3 aint bad.

Full set of Ceremonial Guard armor, plus some extra pcs (it’s better looking than I thought, especially if dyed a different color.)

All but the legs from the Fearless Hunter set.

Some Lower and Supp crates of Tranquil Mystic and Powered Exoguard armor.

One Revanite Avenger gauntlet.

Every vehicle except the jetpack, chemlizard, and Amzab. Got several Tions.

Several Ginxs and a thranta.

9 pink/yellow crystals (mostly Endurance) and a mix of a total of about 10 weapons

2 x Soa regens, 1 angry dance, 2 x Worthy

Decos: Several Rishi flags and totems, a couple each of Celebration tent, Kubaz citizen, Rishi ceiling light, and Blue Holo-ship sign. 1 each of Rodian, Gand, and Pub data storage unit.

You got a fairly nice haul. In one hypercrate, I managed less than half of every outfit, 4 crystals (all but hawkeye), only the Amzab speeder, and a variety of decorative stuff – plus two dye kits, one of which was black/purple. Though listed as ‘deep purple’ instead of ‘dark purple’, I can see zero difference in tinting in the preview window. So hey, I got a dye kit that doesn’t suck. 🙂 I’ll probably scrape up credits to complete an outfit or two, but that crate was pretty much a waste. Only myself to blame, I gambled and lost.

Yeah I think the packs are getting better and better especially the armours. There appears to be something for everyone these days instead of the usual reskins.
All in all well done bioware.
BTW does anyone else think the male model looks cross eyed.
Also (and I know its extra work) but what it would be good to see a preview of the larger/muscular body types. Just a minor gripe.
Excellent work as always dulfy.

I didn’t see it listed, but they have a Stronghold Title in this pack called “Chamber of Truth.”

I must admit, the Lergo is a lot better looking IRL than I expected from pix. I could care less about the new Joko and Tion I got…fugly arse purple crap. Really bummed I didn’t get a Jetpack, but I knew from the get-go they’d wind up being uber rare. Saw a guy flying around fleet with one….they do look nice.

Out of an entire hypercrate (24 packs) and 3 extra packs I purchased, I got a total of 2 weapons – so the random number generator clearly hates me.

In 3 crates I got 2 pistols, 3 rifles, 1 assault cannon and zero lightsabers at all. Worst weapon drop rate since first two sets of packs.

Thanks Arby.
Thats really surprising considering the drop rates for weapons have been really high of late. When the first starforged blasters came out i bought one of the GTN for 20k cause there were so many.
I don’t really mind the low drop rate though cause it means they will sell for a good price and owning one gives you a bit of exclusivity 😛

got myself the assault canon for my commdano and sniperrifle but i cant be arsed to get the lightsabers they are far to stupid

I like how the team keeps pushing the boundaries of the female outfits. One day we’ll get something even more racy than the slave outfits, mark my words!

Need high Heels WE need 6 Inch stiletto Platforms , my toons need them,
Yes you can walk run and fight in them. That old ” you cant walk how can you run” That is from chicks who never wore REAL high heels. Not only can you walk but you can kick and clean and screw in them…also wield a light-saber and or a Blaster.
HIGH HEELS 6 Inch+

I dont know what knee high hooker boots are. My wife wore Knee high stiletto Platform boots all the time and heels. They never said Hooker and we didnt buy them from a Hooker Store.
She is on my facebook. Since Hookers also wear jeans must mean ALL jeans are HOOKER jeans…

I think that in your case all you need is the invisible set that has been avalible for some time. It turns your man into an armored underwaer guy.

Opened 5 packs, 2 or 3 of them had no equipable items, only: a reputation item, scrap, companion affection item (those that you use to gain +xx relation), a title, a stronghold title. Up until now they all atleast had a piece of armour or a weapon. This is new to me, I hope when I get more they’ll contain something more than these did.

If you’re trying for a particular mount, emote or deco you will get more armor than you can store, and vice versa… Murphy’s law of cartel marketing.

I boguht a hypercrate which i will sell entirely on gtn pack by pack. Besides that, i bought 4 packs with 1000 coins i had left from subscriptions, and opened them myself. I got a rk-7 blaster, couple of pink yellow crystals (endurance and critical), a Joko mount, a Tyon mount, an angry dance emote, a black and deep purple dye and a jetpack. yes, a msm jt-2 jetpack, in 4 packs, i was lucky definitely. i think that’s the luckiest i have been in this game.

About time they released a new m1-4x customisation.
Until now there’s only been the two on the Ilum security key vender

sadly unlike all the other customisation that bioware released in these packs

m1-4x version is restricted for prefered players while lord scourge custom skin in this pack isnt

its fucking lame…..

I have a feeling that the jetpack will be the new most expensive mount on the exchange. Walkers went up in price like crazy, and before that it was animal mounts, so I expect jetpacks will be similar.

They’re apparently pretty rare as well (got 1 from last pack of third hyper-crate), which will drive the price up even more.

Have no fear. In future packs they are sure to release the same jetpack in different colors like they do every mount. Sure, the walkers are expensive still. Or you can just get one off the rep vendors. I’ll bargain on the jetpack not being super uber super rare in future packs to appease us who refuse to spend 100.00+ on hypercrates to get one.

Personally I think the jet pack is bullshit. It takes enough time and money to unlock the rocket boost inside your legacy, now they just up and allow people to use it as a mount. Bad call Disney.

I don’t even understand this. They’re not the same thing and it rocket boost certainly isn’t very expensive. And the jet mobile-home backpack is super-rare and pretty ugly.

It is ugly so I don’t want it. Simple. The difference is that the jetpack is a mount/speeder. So you can use it indefinitely in areas that allow mounts. The rocket boots only work for a short time and then have a cooldown before you can use them again. The advantage of rocket boots however is that you can use them also in areas that do not allow mounts/speeders. Also rocket boots can be used as of level 1 but as I said, with all the advantages they have a short duration and a cooldown.

Jetpack is a mount. Rocket Boost is not. I don’t know what you wanted to tell us but it doesn’t make sense.

i got the angrydance v2, how can i add the other 2 in same char? or is only 1 per char and random?

Some dances have three or four versions when you use the same emote. They just randomly pop up which version. Kind of like the “Stylish Dance” (/style) has three different “Gangdam style” dance moves when you use it. Just keep using the same emote and eventually you’ll see all the versions.

God i luv those jetpacks. And they dye modules on this pack are pretty nice. But man, every shadow pack hypercrate that goes on discount bfore being discontinued, im buying. Fingers crossed for at least ONE jetpack. Just one lol………

I’m laughing at all the people that are spending 10mil on them. The packs have only been out for a couple of days, the ones at 16-19 mil are just crazy.

And I rest my case, bought my MSM JT-2 for 7mil. And all I had to do was wait for a few days. Still the most dumb design I have ever seen. But the rate BioWare is going with the art, and content it is better than nothing.

It’s going straight on all my Mandalorian and bounty hunters, and not on the 20 people that think it’s cool to see a sith/jedi using it.

Anyone happen to know if the glowy blue patches on the assault cannon change colors with the slotted crystal?

Have played swtor game for half a year around and we like to get credit for swtor on buy4games.com which place price is more cheaper and delivery is fast,

I was able to buy the SH title “Chamber of Deception,” but I’m not able to sell my extra SH titles of the “Chamber of Truth.” Anyone else having this problem?

WOW new lightsaber (single) is so kick azz, The new sound i love and when performing attacks the base of the crystal/saber top Glows BRIGHT. Looks like the animation on trails has been lengthened as well

Just got Fearless Hunter Helmet for 15k, powered exoguard for 5k , and revanite avenger helmo for 80k. I truly love it when they put an item in a pack that makes everyone fork out 400 real life dollars to get. They end up having to purge their limited cargo space and everything goes for pennies on the GTN. Keep up the good work Jetpack!
