A shiny blue item drops off a boss in a flashpoint that your character obviously can't use, but would be a hefty upgrade for your companion.

Do you:
1. Need roll
2. Greed roll and 'hope' that you win and nobody else needs it
3. Waste 5 minutes explaining to the other group members why you want this item and decide how to roll/trade for it/etc.
4. Whine like a little girl until whoever won the roll gives it to you to shut you up.

Number 2. Needing gives your companion the same chance to win as an actual player which is not fair. (In my opinion)

My companions should not take priority over actual players.

That's a good question... I suppose the community will work it out over time...

For me though, 2.

I would choose greed.
I'm not an inconsiderate ****** like far too many players have seemed to be.

2. I don't even think about my companion in flashpoints. And despite the complaining I've read on the forums I haven't run across any ******* in flashpoints that think needing for companions is acceptable.

Definitely 2.

I'd never need over someone who can actually wear it. A strong companion is very helpful, but still not as good as another player can be. And any companion that wears the same armor type as I do gets all my hand me downs.

Myself?

5. Pass on it, buy customizable gear for my companion, and rip upgrades out of my own outdated gear for it.

I think that even "greed" should be used for player gear, but I certainly wouldn't be upset if someone else greeded it. That's kind of what greed's for.
