Have some respect for other players, and if they need something, don't roll need for your companion. You are just being selfish. The world doesn't revolve around you. I know for a fact that your companion DOESN'T need to be flashpoint/drop geared in order to level up efficiently. If you think this is the case, revise your tactics because you probably just aren't good at the game.
People who think only they entitle to the loot because they choose a class and can use the loot being selfish or those who think he should entitle to a loot he worked for and wanted it and can use it for w/e reason is being selfish?
I know there are people who will roll need on everything. But there are also people who will only roll need on things he needed.
