Armor Progression

A small little trailer has been put up at the site:

http://swtor.com/media/trailers/armor-progression

It shows the various stages of Bounty Hunter armor.
And is it me, or do they look capable of killing every Sith/Jedi in their way?

Well, they look to basically be carbon copies of the Fetts, so...

What DAWUSS said.

I'm also disappointed that armor (at least from what I can tell) will not be crafted...lame.

I'm hoping there is some type of color customization, since there are "thousands of sets of armor and equipment available to you as a Bounty Hunter." If there is a color customization option that would increase the "individuality" aspect that I feel they are trying to achieve

Who says none of that armor will be craftable? It's just a progression from low level armor to high level armor.

This.
What WoW lacks.

They could do what Guild wars did and make it so you can buy dyes that change the trim color of your armor.

Customization would definitely be nice, but they did mention that there are plenty of different kinds of armor and clothing for each class so I'd like to think that means that this armor progression demo is just and example and not an absolute.

^ All that mean is that you could get a different looking armor every few levels, but whats to say all the endgame gear is all the same pretty much, like WoWs.

Well according to the interview from G4 there are going to be tons of options for every level. So this hopefully means numerous types of endgame gear.

I always went full-black in Guild Wars. Style was my middle name!

I hope details will be customisable too.
Add a little ammo pouch there, some torns here, some armor rust...trophies perhaps? Or rabit foot etc...would make the game so much more personal.

My impression was that this is just one example of armor progression - it doesn't touch on customizing at all. That doesn't mean you can't customize though - it just wasn't the topic of this video.

yea, I got to admit, I'm usually the one bitching, but to me it seemed more like a "Hey look how much you change between Nub and berserker" than "This is every piece of armor in game, and you'll all look the same"
