Hm LI already has that. The Security Droid has a low chance to drop the Midnight Rakling pet, and the Doctor has a chance to drop the Mysterious Egg (which, when hatched, provides you with an Orosquab, which is different than the Orokeet provided by the Unusual Egg). All 6 of the characters that I routinely run Hm LI with (3 tanks and 3 healers) have no need for any of the drops provided, but I still do it because of the pets.
Oh I agree with you.
I'm just trying to find some middle ground with Slowpokeking whose been arguing with me over loot drops for days now.
