    Social points in SWTOR (video included)

    In this video, released by SWTOR themself (so no NDA braking) we see a quest where the player gets social points. The developer talks about the social points at 7:30 in the video and sais "Acumelate enough of these (get enough of these social points) and he wil get acces to unique items and equipment"


    Does that mean you will be at a disadvantage for beeing gray/light sith instead of dark?

    What are these unique items and equipment? Is it like reputation rewards in wow (where if you get exhalted or something you can buy an epic) ?

    You'll be at a disadvantage for being Grey. Being a Light or Dark Sith will give you different rewards, but you'll still get plenty. Same with Light and Dark Jedi etc. Being Grey however is apparently limited compared to Dark & Light.

    No. There will be gray gear as well. That was said at PAX and Gamescom.

    They have only said that there will be rewards from social points, not really gone into detail aside from it being gear sets.
    I'm actually looking for money, work is just an unwanted side effect.

    Is it hard to get maxed on the social points? Do I need to be dark all the time, or can I spare some dude if I rly want to.
    My goal is to get all the available items asap

    You get social points from doing things with other people. Has nothing to do with LS/DS points. You will get social points regardless of which side you pick (ls/ds/grey), as long as you are doing that with people.
    As far as how it works, I would guess it is like pvp valor (or whatever they call it). The more you do the higher the rank you are and the more gear becomes available. Maybe it has a cap, I dunno, but since you get it from grouping with others I imagine it would take a while to get max since you will be gathering these points through out the entire game (not just a specific level/area like reps in wow).

    There will be equal gear towards all three sides (Light, Dark Grey).

    This is correct.

    Social Points are not related to dark, light, or gray at all.

    This is correct. Social points are related to doing things in groups - questing, flashpoints.
