Add non-set alt energy types to rep store

The 2nd energy type added to reputation gear which is unlockable at tier 6 was a good addition to the game that adds more build options, however it has also added a bit of a headache both visual and stats when it comes to mixed energy builds.

Most rep weapons have a set and non-set variant e.g

thoron infused polaron / advanced thoron infused polaron

refracting tetryon / hyper refracting tetryon

Radiant Antiproton / Advanced Radiant Antiproton

The alt energy types however don't have non-set variants, so if i wanted to do say a Radiant build using both antiproton radiant and tetryon radiant i would only be able to use 1 tetryon radiant weapon and the rest antiproton radiant since antiproton radiant is available as both set and non-set whereas tetryon radiant is set only.

tl;dr please add non-set versions of the alt energy types to the rep store, perhaps adding them as a tier 6 completion reward since this also unlocks the ability to do the alt energy type weapon project.

    I think its a decent idea, but they'd probably have to wait till tier 6 to unlock which might be a problem.

    Although I think they need to make buying weapons out of the rep store more worthwhile. As it is now they just aren't worth the cost. Some have suggested to make them UR by default which would be an interesting option. Another would be to give them some nonstandard mods to make them more interesting choices.

    the reason i suggested a tier 6 unlock is because the alt energy set weapon project is also unlocked at tier 6.

    This is a great idea! I'm surprised no one suggested this yet. In fact, I was surprised the devs didn't add this into the game when T6 reputations were introduced. Adding this would give me incentive to actually do the T6 reputations. I would also like to see these new weapons as drops in the mystery boxes you get for advancing the reputation. It would definitely create some interesting new build options.

    More generally, it seems like the need to review the gear in the rep store. For the most part, the gear isn't all that useful, especially for the cost even compared to fleet gear.

    The majority of daily rewards I get from leveling the reputation are sold to vendors or discarded immediately.
