Great looking trooper armor?

Hello,

 

I was hoping to get some opinions on really great looking trooper armor.

 

What are your favorites?

 

 

Thanks,

The Unbreakable Veteran set from the older Casino packs is a good one, as long as you find a dye to get rid of the fugly primary burnt yellow.

 

The RD-17a Phalanx set is a good "scout trooper" armor, and it's even restricted to Troopers, so you won't see another class using it! For a slightly heavier look, there's also the TD-17a Colossus set (also restricted to Troopers) with a rather unique helmet. It's the Stalwart Protector Cartel armor WITH the backpack still on it.

 

...and if you don't mind grinding PvP all the way to Valor rank 60, you can always find an Armormech willing to make you a set of Battlemaster shells. (I can do the deed for you, if you're on Jedi Covenant.) The BM Supercommando set, with a Primary White dye...well, they screwed up the primary/secondary/tertiary color assignments, so it looks something like my Vanguard tank, Hadriel. That's with a White/Blue dye, by the way.

 

I hope to see what you come up with!

My favourite gear is actually just the elite comm gear, dyed Red/Black or Blue/Black

 

It is also available for Underworld Tokens, Kel Dragon tokens, and as random drops from NiM SnV/TFB, HM SnV/TFB and the last 2 bosses of DF/DP Storymode.

 

The Kel Dragon/Shadowed gear is better though because glow effects (NiM SnV/TFB only)

 

I do use a "Force Battler Headgear" as the helmet though (Belsavis Comm equipment vendor, its a Jedi Guardian hood but I just swap the mods out)

 

Heres an example of the Kel Dragon variety:

And here's the Verpine/Underworld variety:

(No glow effect)

Love the Verpine / Underworld set as well, but I'd dye it white/orange or secondary orange, looks close to what the npcs are wearing on CZ-198.

 

Some pieces worth checking out:

 

-War hero chest, dyed white/something

-Oricon reputation chest, dyed white/something, same as battlemaster/unbreakable vetera, minus the massive shoulders

-Oricon reputation helmet, same as war hero

-Section-X reputation helmet and gloves

-KDY reputation gloves, legs and boots (although the boots are quite massive), same as battlemaster/unbreakable veteran

-GSI reputation boots & gloves (same as classic gear)

-Forward recon armor set (hide ugly helmet)

There are few that fit in my eye

I like old black hole look dyed to darker colour (can buy similar camp, chest with classic coms and farm from lvl 50 hm fp:s and ops)

From newer ones only craftable Exceptional Powered Assault Body Armor is to my liking.

 

Old tionise, rakata, colume were nice too there are some lookalikes around like sec X legacy set
