So I have heard people draw to this conclusion as I have, do flash points only give out loot for the specific classes playing?
I ask because I ran esseles with three jedi knights and all the dropped as basically knight gear. I was fine with that being the only guardian able to wear heavy armor I got all the loot, but it seemed unfair that our sage didn't even get the chance to roll on anything.
If an item is modable then it isn't class specific because you can get your classes mods and swap them out for the mods that are in the item when you loot it, so the only true difference in class specific gear is the armor type (light med heav). The only time that I have noticed specific "class gear" dropping was when I was running Mandalorian Raiders with 2 IA's and at least 50% of what dropped was IA gear so I guess classes do determine the loot dropped.
