‘Ey dere folks. Welcome to today’s episode of Modular Customization & You! Today we’ll be looking at taking the whosie whatsits from the thingie mabobber that you like the thingies on and jamming them into that there other something-or-other to enjoy maximum visual customability at home or at work – whether you be just your average run of the mill winner of the Great Hunt or your working class Sith lord on the go.
Did you understand any of that? Good. Me neither. What I’m actually wanted to talk about today was a fun little thing that I stumbled upon in Star Wars the Old Republic, that logically I had no reason to think it wouldn’t have worked but it wasn’t clearly spelled out anywhere that I could find that it was doable. Okay, I’m making this sound way more complicated that it actually is. Let’s put it this way. You know that piece of orange modification gear that you absolutely LOVE the look of but it is clearly designed for another class? Like for instance that awesome breather mask that Darth Malgus wears and that Sith warriors can snag as a quest reward? How awesome would that be to wear that around on say… a cyborg powertech to complete the image of the ultimate machine/man interface? Well, I agree:
Meet my Level 25 bounty hunter powertech. Oh I know what you’re thinking. “What the heck, Vry? Bounty hunter’s don’t use strength!” and I don’t. That is the moddable version of the breather mask that you can buy with Nar Shadaa commendations on the Imperial side. What I did was gathered up enough commendations to buy that breather mask and the moddable bounty hunter helmet (the one that looks like a miner hat with a Geordi La Forge visor) and I swapped out all of the mods on them. Twenty-four commendations and a few thousand credits later, and wham! I have a breather mask on my bounty hunter, and no messed up stats.
Oh, I know some of you are out there saying that of course you could do this. It was so obvious. Well, I didn’t know. I thought that mask was a sith thing, the miner hat was a bounty hunter thing, and that was that. So I looked and looked and couldn’t find a thread about it or a post anywhere saying it was doable. So I am here, on the internet to declare, Yes! You can be this custom fit your look to any orange modification armor that you could normally equip! That means no heavy armor for the Assassins, no equipping Jedi knight only robes on your imperial agent. I would also recommend not decking your bounty hunter out in light armor. But otherwise you can just rip the mods out of one and stick’em in the other. There’s no “this can only use strength mods” restrictions at all, and I am absolutely loving it. Why? Because that means my bounty hunter can stroll around the Imperial fleet wearing some bad ass Sith juggernaut copycat oranges.
Bonus Objective: Go back to the first paragraph and re-read it to realize that yes, it DOES make sense in its own twisted way. Mwa ha ha!
