No. Relics provide stat bonuses and on use effects and there are - NO - Neutral relics. All of them REQUIRE an alignment.

You also can't get a majority of the Orange Items.

I agree. I mean, I won't quit over this, but I'd love to hear a Dev response(Which will probably be "We are looking into it").

That is not equal. That is not fair. They are forcing me away from - MY STORY - with this design, and that in itself is against their advertising claims.

Here's an idea, quit being Neutral. People that can't make up their minds on being good or bad deserve nothing as they have done nothing for either. Sorry you can't use those awesome dark/light relics.

This is problem for us people who want to go more down the middle. I almost feel like I'm being forced to go a certain path. This can't be the way this game was ment to be designed, this hasn't been the case in other BioWare games.

Bioware: Hello, gamer!

We have created a story driven MMO for you! How story driven? Well, we've forgone many standard features of regular MMOs (not to mention we have some bugs!!!) just so we could allocate as many resources as possible to your story experience. If you love story, this is the game for you!

Gamer: Sounds good, overly excited Bioware person. Thanks.

10 hours later....

Gamer: So I really like this story, Bioware. It's immerse and exciting. I'm playing an Empire Bounty Hunter who is driven by credits, but who also has a sense of honor. I find I'm pretty neutral when comes to your dark/light scale.

Bioware: Well that's just great, gamer! Glad you're enjoying the story and becoming immersed in it.

By the way, you will now have access to less gear because you didn't pick your answers correctly.
Make a fast break, or that'll be the last mistake that <bleep> will make, is what you get for messin' with
Master Shake.

Your arguement is invalid. This is not a situation where I am simply just going to align myself and ruin my story, which Bioware so heavily covets. This is my story, and my story for this specific character is neutral. I want Bioware to fix their issues, and supply me with Neutral loot. It's only fair.

People can be such @sses. Bioware can easily put this in their game. The OP has a valid point.

You can actually get relics without an alignment restriction through heroic flashpoints and pvp.

Insofar as I know, you're mistaken. There are quite a few relics that are not alignment specific.
