    Today I was just thinking about how cool the Black Hoods will look. "Man, they probably have some of the coolest uniforms. Of course a hood that's black, and not sure if it will be open or have a mask... Would be really cool of they had ma-......" Then it hit me!

    Even though he's a Human... Could he be one of the Black Hoods? I'm definitely getting that feeling! What's your thoughts on the matter? How do you think the fights between the Black Hoods and the ICI will take place? Would you want to be a Black Hood if it's not just for the Mordesh?​

    I hope it will be a war in which it's crucial to find the best intel.

    Mayby some hacking, assasinations, political intruege etc.

    Kinda a ''back-stabbing war'' :D

    I really hope we get more information about the Black Hoods. I've read that there may be chance the Black Hoods will be involved in a dungeon or PVP match-up, but it would be nice to get some more background information.

    Yes! more info plz(maybe a WSW perhaps or in game). It would be awesome if there's an entire line of quests based around either the black hoods if your exile or the ICI if your on the Dominion. And then if you complete this sneakily based lines of quests you get a cool spy gear or a costume.

    well this one guy is just a player (well in this case a dev playing as Stalker) for the video of the Paths,



    Also I doubt this is the set of the Black hoods, yes it have a hood, but devs also confirmed hood helmets for players the same day that this video was uploaded to internet

    don't get me wrong, I really want more lore about the Black Hoods, and other factions in the game. that 's why I will made my main a Mechari Stalker Scientist

    I knew that already, where did you think the pic came from? ;)

    Sure they confirmed hooded helms, but they also were still testing the Mordesh then, and probably it's content in which the player could also get the Black Hoods gear. Also back to your point of the player being a dev, can't devs have any armor they want? Especially in beta?

    I mean it could also very well be another gear set and not Black Hood gear. But, at least in my head, it just adds up that it is Black Hood gear.

    Off course they can use any kind of item set on their dev videos. and more because those videos are just for show things. And also I'm sure those weren't recorded in the closed beta servers, they maybe used the one in the QA department or a sandbox servers just for the videos

    but in this case, they just used "iconic" armor for the paths to made easy recognize every paths in the video, in this case that stalker armor looks a lot like a soldier one, with all those plates in and the full helmet mask.

    Also I don't think the "Black Hood" is a Literal thing, is just a name for that exile's organization they don't even need hoods when you have hi camouflage technology .

    jajajaja well I'm not in beta. but I had experience with beta stages of videogames. the builds that players see isn't really the last one

    they test like this. first they test in their QA departament, those build are very advanced stage in comparison with the one where players are. then , when one build is good enough they install it on the beta server. because not every bug is found by the QA department, because not every player is the same and those tester will make a good feedback for QA and the Dev team.

    Also , for videos is better use a sandbox server, because some beta tester can appears and show something that they don't want to show yet to the rest of the ppl.

    about the "Also I don't think the "Black Hood" is a Literal thing, is just a name for that exile's organization they don't even need hoods when you have hi camouflage technology ." I just had a lot of experience in other Sci-fy videogames, and the name of an organization is just a name not a literal thing. but I can be wrong this time

    Not only do I want to see more info on:
    ICI vs Black-Hoods (explorers based faction like?)

    But also on the:
    DRED vs XAS (science based faction)

    And the:
    Crimson Legion vs FCON (soldier based faction)

    Those are all kinda the well-known factions within the Dominion and the Exiles (atleast well-known to lore-geeks like me ;)).
    Now we'll have to see what kind of ''settler based faction'' there will be on either side aswell.
