Patch 1.7 hit today, and with it brought new Reputation grinds. Locked behind the grinds are reputation based gear, weapons, and pets available for purchase. Awesome or awful, to each their own on the vanity of it all. Here’s a summary of the Reputation gear available for Imperials.
!Protip : All reputation gear is Legacy bound. You can mail it across your legacy and gain reputation on all level appropriate characters. All gear and weapons are custom shells, they have no stats.
GREE REPUTATION GEAR
!Protip : The Gree gear is associated with the Gree Relics Event. According to the patch notes this event will last TWO WEEKS, but will return. I couldn’t locate any info on if the vendors will come and go with the event or not.
All of the Gree Rep Armors are recolors of Imp Agent Vendetta Gear. All Gree Rep Armor has a Level Requirement of 45. All Gree Weapons have a Level 50 Requirement. Pets have no Level restriction. Black Armor Reputation is locked behind Friend Status. White Armor and Weapons require a status of Champion.
This is full shot of the Black with Blue Accents. Also modeled is the Grey Helix Sniper rifle.
This is a close up of the Grey Helix Sniper Rifle. This weapon model is one of the more detailed with Gree ‘Flash’.
Above is the other Tech user Weapons. They all feature Gree ‘Flash’. It was expected that they would all be recolors, and they are. The Blaster Rifle is a conservatively used model only seen in leveling flash points that I know of.
The Lightsabers available have the Gree ‘Flash’ on the blade. I can best describe then as geometrical emanations.
The Gree Rep grind has two pets available. The Data Core can be purchased by players with a Newcomer status. The Grey Scan Requires Legend Status.
SECTION X GEAR
This gear is a mix of Trooper and Marauder recolors. The pet is a ‘Baby’ Drouk. The armor has a level requirement of 48. The pet can be purchased by a Legacy with Friend status, the armor is locked behind Champion. The pet has a pricey tag of 250,000 credits.
You can locate this vendor in the Voss-Ka cantina. Along with the weekly mission for Voss Heroics. It’s a darker recolor of Voss Social Gear and it’s locked behind a Champion status and can be worn by level 49 Legacy characters.
The bulk of Space Mission reputation gear is locked behind Hero Status. The ‘Bounty Hunter PvP Helmet’ recolor is available to Space Mission players with a Champion status. Legacy characters at level 38 can wear the Hero armor. You have to be level 49 to wear the Champion Helm.
The Silverstrike Legacy can be found on The Bastion’s Vaiken Space Dock in the company of his fellow Zergadins.
