So Flashpoints have a smart Drop system?

Has anyone noticed that Flashpoints tend to only drop gear that is for the classes running it at the time of the drop?

It's something I notice a lot when duoing flashpoints with my wife.

if we run with a Trooper+Sage, only trooper/sage gear drops.
if we run with Knight+Smuggler, only knight/smuggler gear drops

While it may seem like a good thing at first, it quickly became problematic for me when I tried getting orange heavy armor to drop for my Agent's companion, only Agent gear dropped... for 8 runs. Ultimately I had to bring in one of her heavy armor wearing characters to get it to drop and have her pass on it.

Anyone can confirm/deny this?

Can deny it. Have had HM Flashpoints drop BH gear without a BH in the group (IA aswell, but pretty much always have a SW/SI) several times.

Only talking the tier pieces here tho, the rest of the gear that drops is pretty much null.

I think its like that in the normal FP's. When I ran a buddy of mine through the low level stuff nothing but the gear for our classes dropped. However for HM and OP's its pretty much RNG.

Yes, it's only true for normal modes.

Edit: I should doesn't seem to take your AC into consideration though. On my marauder I've seen a few heavy armor str drops that no one could use.

Absolutely not the case in Hm's, have a group that's been stable and no Jedi Knight in our group so what do you think keeps dropping.
