New Star Wars: The Old Republic Community Q&A Lets You Pull Your Hood Down

If you read my interview with Bioware’s Live Producer Cory Butler you probably know that I really want to pull down the hood hiding the features of my Jedi Guardian.

Yesterday BioWare published the second community Q&A session, responding to quite a few new questions about the future of Star Wars: The Old Republic. Thankfully one of the answers explained that I’ll be able to show off my Anakin-like hairstyle with the next major update after 1.2 (that will come in March).

Other highlights include the implementation of unique seasonal events soon, the ability to toggle the headgear of companions, the fact that mobile apps dedicated to the game are currently being worked on and the ability to move armoring mods (and the relative set bonuses) from endgame gear to customizable gear that goes on the same slot, effectively giving players the freedom to wear whatever look they want and give it optimal stats, even after reaching the endgame.

The option to activate chat bubbles coming after the UI customization features will also please the roleplayers between us (roleplaying in croweded areas with the normal chat is an absolute mess due to the overcrowded chat window).

As icing on the cake, Principal Lead Combat Designer Georg Zoeller explains in detail the mechanics behind taunts and group healing and Principal Lead PvP, Operations & Flashpoints Designer (they sure like long titles at BioWare) Gabe Amatangelo lets us know what will be done to discourage “ragequitters” and “afkers” in warzones.

If you have questions of your own, you can post them here. As you go to read the full Q&A remember: There’s no hair. There’s the Hood.
