As mentioned earlier, no level 50 gear has dark side / light side options. Dont worry, its just a 1-49 problem.

What about the sequel.... "50 shades of Grey Sith"??? Me want!
SWTOR... the MMO some people LOVE to HATE, others HATE to LOVE, and others simply embrace it and play it for what it is.

Just something to read if your interested and would like to know more.

You don't really miss out on a lot. The leveling weapons all have at level equivalents that aren't hard to obtain. In fact, once you get your initial orange saber you just keep putting new mods in it.

And the relics you get for alignment aren't that great. You can get better via daily or comms or creds.

There is no need for a gray jedi in the game. You either go sith or jedi. You add this extra option then you need to add extras for all the other classes. You can't simply give all the extras to one class and not the others.

Why exactly should you be rewarded for not making a clear moral choice?

So Gray force user is an oxymoron IMO.

That said.. setting aside the lore context.... it's a game... so there should be bending of the lore to please some of the diversity desires of the players.
Considering that in game there are some Dark Side choices that seem more right than their Light Side equivalent (ie. Breaking a minor law to stop a Senator from propagating his Empire agenda), I'd agree. They need to bend the rules to fit the game, not the films.

BTW, if you really look at his actions, Luke can be described as a Gray Jedi. Solo is definitely a Gray Smuggler. And even Obi Wan did some things that might be considered Dark (using the Jedi mind trick willy nilly seems to be frowned upon in-game) if they were in this game. So, the concept is not without precedent, even in the films.

Items that require a Light Side / Dark Side Zero and have a level requirement so that lower levels can't use it. Voila!
What's the problem with that?

Gray Jedi are non-canon? Ummm... they are definitely KotOR canon.

How to implement them in the game? Uhhh... why can't we accrue light side and dark side points and just have item requirements like (Lightside III, Darkside IV, etc.).

Not the most difficult thing in the world to have implement IMO and quite frankly having to artificially be a jerk or a goodie two shoes just for "points" so I can get X gear is a major turnoff.

Really very little excuse for a KotOR game not to have this incorporated at launch and the irritating thing is that this was a conscious design decision. Not particularly time intensive.
