Outfit Designer allows you to create multiple outfits for your character that you can switch to quickly and easily without requiring you to change the AMEs on your armor to maintain your stats. It is a visual system only and does not allow you to maintain multiple sets of armor for different roles or play styles. NOTE: At this time it only allows you to change the 7 armor slots and only applies to your character, not companions.
You can find the Outfit Designer by opening your Character Sheet. All aspects of Outfit Designer have been incorporated into the Character Sheet.
How it Works
The top tab is the armor your character is actually wearing. You can change your AMEs and armor dyes in exactly the same manner as you could before Outfit Designer.
To build a new outfit, select one of the tabs.
Place up to 7 armor items into the slots. NOTE: You can re-use the same items in multiple tabs and destroy them once you have completed your outfit. Once you have destroyed an item, you will need to reacquire it if you want to add it to a new tab.
To finish an outfit, you need to click “Commit Changes” to complete the set. You can also “Discard Changes” if you are not satisfied. NOTE: Each item you equip into an armor slot costs 5,000 credits at level 60 and the item will “Bind” to that character.
You can apply a dye to an item both before and after you place it into the Outfit Designer. If you apply the dye prior to adding it to the Outfit Designer, it will change that item’s look for every tab it is in. If you wait until it is already in the Outfit Designer, it will only change the dye for that outfit tab. NOTE: If you apply a dye in the Outfit Designer and remove the armor item, the dye will disappear with that item.
Each outfit has it’s own “Customize Appearance” settings. This means you could have the exact same set in two different tabs with the “Hide Head Slot” or “Show Dark Side Corruption” options checked for one, but not the other.
To activate an outfit, select that tab and click “Apply” at the top. This will change your character’s look to the selected armor set. You can change your character’s look back to the equipped armor set by selecting the “Currently Equipped Gear” tab and selecting “Apply.” NOTE: Your stats will remain constant no matter which outfit you have equipped and it does not cost anything to switch between outfits.
You can tell which outfit you currently have equipped by the green outline around the tab number and the words “Active Outfit” will appear next to the tab when you hover over it.
Each armor item you place into the Outfit Designer costs 5,000 credits at level 60. One full outfit costs 35,000 credits. Level 1-10 costs 50 credits per slot. It appears that level 11 is 100 credits per slot and then the price rises 100 credits per level.
|Level||Cost Per Slot||Cost for Full Outfit|
|1-10||50 credits||350 credits|
|13||300 credits||2,100 credits|
|16||600 credits||4,200 credits|
|17||700 credits||4,900 credits|
|19||900 credits||6,300 credits|
|23||1,300 credits||9,100 credits|
|55||4,500 credits||31,500 credits|
|60||5,000 credits||35,000 credits|
|65||5,500 credits||38,500 credits|
The first outfit tab is free. You can purchase additional tabs (up to 16) for credits or cartel coins. NOTE: When you purchase an outfit tab, it is only for that character unless you choose the Account Unlock option.

Tips and Tricks

- You don’t have to equip every item in Outfit Designer. For example, if your gloves cover the bracers, save yourself credits and don’t equip the bracers in Outfit Designer.
- You can use the Covert Energy pieces to hide your currently equipped items.
