I've got a question for those of you in beta. How good is armour. Because we've had all the threads about Mandalorian and anything else relating to armour, but how affective is armour class. Can any withstand a few blaster bolts, or can they have attatchments, enhancements etc?

I also have some questions about armor. Can you live without it? Can you put clothes over it? I don't picture my guy wearing armor, but just casual combat clothes. He is going to be combat oriented though.

Armor is really effective. The first group of armor is bone armor, it's sort of newbie, and it looks cool. I don't remember the next step up in armor....but back to what I was going to say....Ebik really only recently got armor. I was playing with only a rugged jacket and some blue ribbed pants (matching the jacket). Although I had some hide boots they really didn't play an effective role because most mobs aren't going to be attacking your feet.

I decided to go to Lok, just to see the place and explore a bit. Well, most of the mobs there are armored. One in perticular had an armor rating of 1. And basically when you attack it, the armor will take half the damage and the creature will take the other half off their hp/action/mind pool. So, I attack the action pool for 100 hit points, so in reality i only take 50 hit points off his action pool.

You can wear cloaks over armor, and one of the most popular cloaks was a Neo-esk type cloak that was quite expensive. I was going to buy it, but never won it in an auction.

You can play the game without armor, but of course, the armor is always a nice addition :)

Check out http://www.swgcenter.com/PointSystem/PS_Items.asp?ItemType=Armor
for a few armor pieces. I don't think this is everything though.

Yeah, that's where you get some nice bonuses after buying armor and all, it'll be easier to solo :)

Say, I just got an idea. :)

Head over to SWGalaxies.Net (http://www.swgalaxies.net), submit that question for instance and others aswell, and help us build up the database again. :)

That E-11 question is great for that.
And it appears that it is atleast available in-game, but I haven't come over any restrictions to it. It's a cool weapon. :)

Well I want some of that composite armour. Lol.

[EDIT]What selection do you have on clothes when creating character? Also do they have some hooded clothes.
