With every jacket uglier than the last, I was stuck in my weird jacket with the doodads on the back and the horrendous neck roll…
Which, I might remind you, is still better than the higher level crap that I keep looting:
Then, as luck would have it, my sentinel finished a level 15 quest that I had skipped on my smuggler and the reward was a fully moddable chestpiece. Hrm… brain connecting dots… fully moddable chest… from level 15 quest, probably not too ornate.
I have never logged back to my main so fast ever. I abandoned my sentinel in the senate building and hauled my smuggly-butt back to Coruscant, picked up the quest, and got my very plain looking level 15 jacket.
Sometimes the simplest low-level items do look the best.
