I've been leveling my Imperial Agent as Light the whole game, and hit Light V shortly before finishing Corellia. After I finished the Act 3 story I went to Section X on Belsavis and got HK-51 as a companion. I'd like to increase my affection with him while questing on Makeb, but apparently most Light choices make him lose about affection while Dark choices tend to gain about 100 affection. I'm willing to lose Light V to get affection with him, but I'd like to have gear in my relic slots too.

What level 50+ relics are available that don't require you to be as Light/Dark as possible, and where can I acquire them?

I'm going to rank all the unaligned relics in the game (best to worst) with how they can be obtained:

  1. Dread Master

    Drops from Bestia in the Dread Palace operation on Nightmare Mode. Cannot be crafted.

  2. Dread Forged

    Drops from Tyrans in the Dread Palace operation on Hard Mode.

  3. Brutalizer

    Obtained via Ranked PvP comms (1300 plus the corresponding Obroan to trade in). Cannot be crafted.

  4. Obroan

    Obtained via Warzone comms (700). Cannot be crafted. This is the best bang for your buck if you are willing to do any PvP at all.

  5. Kell Dragon

    Drops from the Dread Guard in Terror From Beyond on Nightmare Mode. Cannot be crafted.

  6. Underworld

    Drops from the Dread Guard in Terror From Beyond on Hard Mode.

  7. Arkanian

    Drops from Calphayus in Dread Palace on Story Mode, the Dread Guard in Terror from Beyond on Story Mode, is a reward for completing the Ops portion of the Oricon storyline, and buyable from the Basic Gear Vendor for 150 Basic comms. This is probably the lowest tier you want to consider at the moment.

  8. Dread Guard

    Drops from Explosive Conflict in Hard and Nightmare Modes and possibly from Eternity Vault or Karagga's Palace, and buyable from the Classic Gear Vendor for 150 Classic comms.

  9. Campaign

    Drops from Taral V, Directive 7, and other 50 Hard Mode flashpoints; also drops from the Fabricator Droid in Karagga's Palace on Story Mode and possibly from Eternity Vault or Explosive Conflict.

  10. Rakata

    Craftable and usable only by Artificers, learned from the trainer.

  11. Matrix Cube

    You can assemble these by finding Matrix Shards from Datacrons; see this question for more detail. (This could arguably be slightly higher up the list.)

  12. Antiviral Kit

    These come in MK-3, MK-2, and MK-1 flavors usable at levels 45, 35, and 25. They come from the Rakghoul Resurgence event vendors and are sold from a vendor in the GSI area in the Upper Promenade on Nar Shaddaa while the event is not active.

There are a lot of relics that do not require level 5 alignment. Many are crafted, so talk to your favorite high-level crafter for those. The rest are mostly available from running operations.

If you complete the bulk of the Oricon quest series and get to the Dread Palace Courtyard to complete The Bastion of Fear/Descent Into the Dark Fortress quest, you receive one end game relic.

You can get your other relic drops from operations, or buy relics with commendations (at the vendors in the Supplies section in the fleet) received from those same operations (if you don't get the drops).

You only have to run story mode (SM) to get enough commendations for the relics, though running hard modes (HM) may help you get there faster assuming you can complete HM runs.

All of the relics from operations do not have alignment requirements.

You probably should add which commendations you need for the relics you can buy with commendations –  Damek Jun 1 at 19:10
