How to Look like Poe Dameron in SWTOR

In another great installment of “how to look like ___” from SWTORista, we have how to look like Poe Dameron. We love these guides she has created that detail exactly how to create a SWTOR character that looks like character’s from the new Star Wars film, “The Force Awakens”. Here, she tells us how to recreate Poe, the famous pilot. A snippet on getting his outfit just right: Poe’s outfit in the movie is the standard Republic starfighter suit – it’s the same as the ones in the old movies. In SWTOR, there is a few types of pilot suits available, but there is only one close to the one Poe wears in the movie. You could also try dying this uniform with an orange dye! She also tells you how to get the build, hair and face right. You can try different combos to see what comes out best…

How to Look like Captain Phasma from The Force Awakens in SWTOR

Even if you have not seen the new Star Wars film yet (what rock have you been living under?), you are probably familiar with Captain Phasma. We’ve seen her in a great deal of marketing promotions for Episode 7. She’s the silver-clad Stormtrooper who is seen as Kylo Ren’s right-hand man. She’s 6 foot 5 inches of badness. The actress who plays her, Gwendoline Christie, is 6’3″. You may recognize her as Brienne of Tarth in Game of Thrones, or as Commander Lyme in The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2. © 2015 – Lucasfilm If you’re fond of Captain Phasma, SWTORISTA gives us the breakdown of how to recreate the look in SWTOR, despite the fact the movie is set thousands of years after Star Wars: The Old Republic. Here in this article, she explains exactly how to do it and we think it’s pretty cool. Here’s a snippet: Captain Phasma…

SWTOR Firebrand PvP Armor Animations

Along with Kell Dragon armor, they also updated the Firebrand PvP shells from Ranked Warzones with similar animation effects in patch 2.2. Dulfy does what she does best and made us some great new videos showing the animations. They are really similar to the Kell Dragon armor but they’re red instead of blue. It’s cool but not much different from the PvE sets, minus the colors. I think it looks better on some than others. But then there is the issue of whether or not we want our PvP gear to be blinking like an airport… Have a look and let us know what you think. Yay or nay? Check out the videos (thanks Dulfy!)

Preview of SWTOR Armor Dyes

We already told you about how armor dye kits are coming to SWTOR. This is a point of excitement for many players who are looking forward to the chance to change their gear or wear gear they love with the colors they want. While some of the gear is not eligible to be dyed, there is still a lot of flexibility when it comes to changing your look. This is just one more way that Bioware is moving forward with their “customization update” and giving players some of what we have been asking for all along. It’s many of these seemingly small details that actually make a game stand out among others. Something as simple as the look of gear can make some players choose to leave the game. Allowing more customization, like with these armor dyes, is one more way to keep players happy and on board. While there…
