Bronze Armour Set of the Week – “Ravager”

SWTOR Blog Banner

Judging by the number of forum posts on the official SW: TOR forums regarding RNG and loot drops, I am assuming that the “Bronze” armour loot boxes that plague both cartel market packs and Command pack drops kinda tick people off. At one point, so many people complained about the number of repeated bronze items in Cartel Market packs that BioWare was forced to do something about it and changed the RNG loot drops for CM packs entirely. Sure, you still get a few bronze items in the CM packs to date but the ratio of bronze items to say silver or gold is much more improved than it used to be.

That said, I don’t think players are giving the Bronze Packs the credit they deserve. Whilst they may not shine as brightly as their Silver, Gold or Platinum counterparts, I’d like to argue that an armour set’s value is not so much in the colour of the pack it comes in but in how good it makes you look once you have it on. If you’re only wearing gold armour sets because they’re gold armour sets, you’re missing out on quite a fair bit.

So with that in mind, I’m not sure if I’ll make this a weekly article or just an “every now and then” write-up on some of the sexiest looking Bronze Armour sets that people tend to ignore but shouldn’t.

The first time I saw this armour set I always wondered why it was never released as silver or even gold for the way it looked.

Here’s a little video clip:

One thought on “Bronze Armour Set of the Week – “Ravager”

  1. […] This bronze set is one I’ve never worn because I always thought these sets and similar sets like them (Magnificent Dancer etc) didn’t really have a purpose to them. Then of course, I remember the “Slave” girl outfit Carrie Fisher was made to wear in Return of the Jedi while Luke gets dressed in an all black ensemble and looks kick-ass. That kinda makes me squirm. This set and others like it really do belong in that category – armour sets only men could appreciate because they really make your character look like a hooker. That said however, there are plenty of women who have since worn the outfit at conventions and in other popular culture who think the Slave costume is empowering. Yep, it says so right here. […]
