The Jedi are often sent to the front line in the fight against the Empire. Jedi Shadows sneak behind enemy lines to do as much damage as possible. But does the Republic consider what happens once the Jedi is no longer stealthed? Defender of the Free is a Jedi Shadow outfit for SWTOR which addresses this concern. Sporting a heavy plate armour look while retaining a cloak for your Jedi-ness, it balances defence against the need for a sustained attack. Shadow Jedi should drive for balance and I think this outfit achieves that. Enjoy!
Defender of the Free in Action
Excluding the ‘Kick’ knock-down that Jedi Shadows have, the cape mostly behave itself! Here’s a range of combat abilities to give you an idea how it works while being in combat.
Components of this Outfit
Here is a mini gallery of the individual pieces of this SWTOR outfit. I needed to go for something plate-looking for the legs that fit the chestpiece. This wasn’t easy, especially with my current Collections unlocks. But I got there in the end! Only the top of the leggings shows as the boots come up pretty high. So you may choose to swap the trousers out.
Making this Jedi Shadow Outfit
This heavy armour-like appearance is made up of various SWTOR armour sets. However, the Scion’s Gloves can be acquired on Odessen and the Dye is craftable if you have an Artificer.

Alternatives with Similar Skin
As I notice them, I’ll try to give alternative items with the same, or similar appearance (aka “Skin”).
- Alternative to Conquered Exarch’s Meditation Robe: Exile’s Shirt (this can drop as loot from fallen enemies on Ossus)
