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) ?
