Sages can Force Lift anything.
Sentinels can Disable Droids.
Smugglers can Slice Droids.
Scoundrels can Tranquilize non-Droids.
This isnt always the case. First boss in Mandalorian Raiders has two adds that cant be cc'ed and are untauntable. So 1OT with good DPS or 2 smart DPS to burn down ads asap is nice. So far tanking has been different in this game for me and requires some adjusting but its still incredibly fun.

The smoothest flashpoint group I was in consisted of:

Powertech- Tank
Operative- Main Healer
Assassin- DD/offtank
Sorcerer- DD/off heal

We were running Mandalorian Raiders at the time.

lazy, wow, your post is just plain ignorant.
Force Scream is ranged and does a lot of threat. It's just not labeled "TAUNT".

We've been running 2 dps, 2 healer setup. 1 Merc, 1 Marauder, 1 Operative healer, 1 Sorc healer. The Merc is usually the tank, when he cant hold agro on something then who ever has agro is the tank. So far we've cleared: False Emp hardmode, Battle of Illum hardmode, Boarding Party hardmode, Foundry hardmode (up to Revan, his force lightning does like 50k dmg), Black Talon hardmode. When we struggle for dps the sorc goes into semi dd and off heals as needed.
Second place makes you first of the losers.
