Drop Rate of Companion Gifts

Okay while my toons currently had "Underworld Trading", and I have noticed that the drop rate of certain Companion Gifts seems to have diminished since the release of 1.2. I am wondering what other people are seeing of the same.

It appears I am getting more Underworld Goods and less Cultural (like none), and Technology items (rarity now). I am wondering if this is due to the ability to award our Ship Droids gifts now too?

What are others belief.

I'm sorry to say that I still receive an inordinate amount of Companion Gifts missions while trying to get missions for my actual crafting skills.

In an 11 day period, including logging off an on, I have only found moderate and a couple of level 4 Medical Supply Missions for my Diplomacy runs on my Bio Crafter.

I also run into way too many Companion gifts on UT, TH, and even Investigation.

It may be just a hairs breadth better in finding a metal or other mission, but I still see and get way too many Companion Gifts missions, and I still can't craft with them.

Maybe we could swap out if you have the opposite problem.

I swear that the system looks to see what you need for crafting and makes it near impossible to get the missions needed to do the crafting.

I've not tested this, but I do know that it is random. Though I do not totally agree with the RNG method, it is what it is for now.

To the second poster. I have tested that. The return rate for companion gifts is approximately 3.15 to 1 over underworld metals and 2.25 to one over fabrics. That is very much out of balance.
May the Schwartz be with you....

Just do what I do when I got 5 useless missions... go to your ship... entering your ship will give you 5 new missions... if still no good missions, leave your ship... leaving your ship will give you new missions too...

Rince, repeat until someone at Bioware gets a clue that this is NOT fun and they seperate the Gift Missions from the others.
