If you want the campaign boots its required! If you want to finish the quest for the speeder its required!
What those people are doing is plain griefing, you should report them in game they will be dealt with. they are stopping your game play they are griefing. but coming here to complain is pointless. Petition them in game.
mmm Ill give you the speeder point but I dont think the camp boots are really required you can just take rakata boots and mod them out with BH mods.
I mean I certainly agree with you the entire 1 shot mechanic needs to be reworked. Instead of making it one shot the raid that is currently attempting it I think that it should one shot anyone outside the raid. Makes much more sense to me.
