Hard modes not droping Rakata loot?

Hey there, a problem we are noticing after 1.1 now.

Hard modes that used to always drop rakata gear, are randomly not dropping it sometimes. Clearing hard mode Karagga's, the first and second boss dropped head piece/belt, but the third and fifth did not drop the bracers or mainhand.

We just had the same problem in Hard Mode Eternity Vault, where the first boss did not drop rakata gloves. Is this supposed to work like this, with a random chance to get rakata gear, or is this some kind of bug?

Ya we downed the first boss today in EV and he didn't drop any columi/rakata with it on master loot, so we had to take it off that to Need/Greed which was a pain in the *** to distribute the gear properly, but after we did that all the rest of the bosses dropped rakata/columi

Not a trustworthy guild,eh? Its actually easier with need/greed than ML if your guild isn't full of ninjas.



To be honest I wish it was this way, they should've left rakata to the last tier of raiding.

But that doesn't make any sense; give players even better gear with nothing to progress on to?

Rakata gives you progression into nightmare mode, and downing nightmare modes gives you bragging rights. It's the first MMO i've seen that actually has a sensible gear progression structure.

Disappointed.

I was under the impression that hard mode was suppose to have a chance to drop Rakata gear whereas nightmare was guaranteed. Perhaps I was misinformed but this might explain it; you guys were simply unlucky and didn't have rakata drop. Did Columni drop instead?

Uhh how do you need/greed 2 of the same tokens with two of the same class that needs said token? There is no way to identify which token is which, so even rolling one at a time with the small timer window is tricky.

Did Nightmare mode EV 16man last night, and I think it was Gharj, dropped Columi Bracers. You know, the same ones you get from HM BT.
