I like to collect clothes…a lot. Not in real life, but in my MMOs, collecting clothes and armor is an obsession at times. You may or may not have noticed by my screenshots that my Imperial Agent has changed her gear at least 4 times, and I’m not finished yet! I’m currently on the lookout for even more gear for her. My tank is also getting in on the fashion action, he is still in his gear that he received at low level, and he is farming NPCs for the matching pieces of the set.
Thanks to the orange gear that Star Wars the Old Republic has, my Agent can wear anything that is medium armor or light armor and is orange (for more info on orange gear click here for a previous post). I do want to stick more to medium armor since it’s the highest level of armor I can wear.
I go through phases on my Agent where I am proud to be an Imperial Agent and I wear my Uniform with pride. However, there are other times when due to the story or the need to be undercover I want nothing to do with my Imperial Uniform. There are even other times when I just want to feel like a sexy gun-crazy Chiss while I’m saving the Universe. Nothing wrong with a little blood on the flesh to remind you what you are fighting for!
My Past and Present Fashion
Current Outfit: Showing Some Skin for the Empire
Chest: Agile Wisdom Vest
Gloves: Marksman Elite Prototype Gloves
Legs: TD-07A Panther Leggings
Boots: Sniper Elite Prototype Boots
At the moment I am wearing this, it’s not a perfect set but I am enjoying showing off some of my blue skin! What is funny is the tank found this piece for me on the Galactic Trade Network right before we went to Hoth. I found it humorous that I would decide to wear something a bit more revealing on my Agent when we were going to a planet covered in snow and known for its extreme cold temperatures.
I’m pretty happy with this outfit but the boots bother me, they draw too much attention to them for my tastes but I am currently looking for a replacement. I don’t have a helmet to match this set since I don’t ever really show my helmet. This is her “flirty” and “bad girl” outfit. It’s just meant to be fun, and she wouldn’t dare really wear this to Imperial Intelligence, but while she’s out in the field, it’s nice to let your skin breath.
As you’ll notice as you read more below you can see that I’ve re-used some of the items. They seem to match well and I haven’t found anything better at this point.
My Third Outfit: Ready to Serve
Chest: Imperial Coordination Prototype Jacket
Pants: TD-07A Panther Leggings
Boots: TD-042 Spec Ops Boots
Hat: TD-07A Panther Headgear
I really loved this outfit at the time I found it because I was really into the missions I was doing for the Empire. I was also in an area where I was encouraged to not hide my status as an Agent. This was pretty neat for me, since most of my Agent’s career I’m not supposed to be an arm of the Empire. I will forever love this outfit, and when I do wear it I’m proud to be able to look like Imperial Intelligence. Overall it’s just cool beans!
I’m very pleased with this outfit, I even like the helmet, even though I don’t show it unless I’m really in the zone. I adore this chest piece and love walking into Imperial Intelligence with this on, it really does make me squee some!
My Second Outfit: Undercover Sister
Chest: Synthmesh Battle Jacket
Hands: Synthmesh Battle Gloves
Legs: Plastifiber Barrage Leggings
Boots: TD-042 Spec Ops Boots
I really liked this outfit because the color matched my skin very well. I also liked the hood that rested on my back, although I would love to be able to actually have a hood on my Agent. It had a nice feel to it, I actually felt like I could touch the fabric that runs down the arms in the chest piece.
This set is nice, it’s not one of my favorites but it was a fun set to try out. I really like the overall feel of this on my Agent and feel like it’s a good outfit not to really stand out in but to be prepared for anything for. This is what I would imagine she would wear for undercover missions, something that doesn’t scream I LOVE THE EMPIRE AND YOU ARE GOING TO DIE!
My First Outfit: Certified Bad-Ass
Pants: TD-07A Panther Leggings
Chest: Black Talon Operative’s Jacket
Boots: TD-04B Spec Ops Boots
I loved this outfit and felt very lucky that the chest piece dropped for me the first time the tank and I did the Black Talon flashpoint. It has a Bounty Hunter feel to it, but the grey works well for an Imperial Agent. I always love the long trench coat look and the way it moves is wonderful! One thing I hated before in other MMOs is that if I had a cloak it wouldn’t move, it would just stay in one position all the time. In SWTOR the long jackets and the cloaks move with your body and the environment. Nothing was cooler for me than jumping towards an enemy in this outfit with my gun blazing!
I had to slowly add to this set as it was one of the first piece of orange gear I ever received in the game. This is a really fun set for me that I know I will continue to revisit. This is totally for undercover use but honestly I could see her relaxing in this gear in her down time.
My Future Fashion and My Role in the Empire
Currently I am on the lookout for a medium armor skirt to match my top. So far the only one I have found that I like is from the Social Vendor on Voss. They have a nice skirt that could match, however it is light armor so I’m still debating on this issue. However, as a side note, the whole social set on Voss is AMAZING! The tank and I are closing in on Social Level V and I’m super excited to unlock the set!
One thing that is kind of holding me back from going the full skirt route is I feel like I’ll look more like my Sith Sorcerer in that armor and I’m far from being a Sith. This kind of concerns me, especially since my Agent really can’t stand Sith and all the trouble they cause (that she has to clean up), but sometimes throwing the enemy off on who I am can be a good thing right? I’m sure there are many Sith who might be offended and honestly? That would please my Agent greatly. She fears no Sith and would like to give them all a taste of their own medicine at times.
So what about you? What gear are your characters wearing? Are you incorporating role-playing into your clothing or just going for the cool eye-candy factor?
