Bonus Shell Sets never dropped, not even once!!!!

I keep running flashpoints either in solo or vet mode...
Yet I never dropped any given sets to drop, i mean every loot is just junk
or ondelarian crap gear, never lets say..a piece of Preserver Set
(when i farmed meridian thingy,to see if it dropped) or any dropable given set
will drop.

This is ridiculous, i mean i know there is rng , but my mate who just hit
70 already dropped a full set for his tank , while im just holding flowers
and praying i drop anything...i mean at this point literally anything that isnt generic dung.

*I did select my loot discipline,even changed it to see if i dropped anything,yet never anything
does...its irritating and yet, EA gives me a bland response saying its normal
to not always have the set i want to drop.That I get, I think they fail to see that i dont drop any of
the special sets at about not letting me improve my character,nice going!

Anyone can help?

The drop chance in FPs is just bad(1). In a pinch (if you don't care about the set-collection cheevos), just take your Tech Frags to the setbonus/tactical vendor and/or Kai Zykken.

(1) But it *is* a chance, and it doesn't have a "pity bias"(2) either.

(2) Where it takes *pity* on you and *biases* the chance in your favour if you haven't "won" in a while.

Set pieces generally drop from master mode fps. Solo content doesn't give them. Vets rarely if at all.

You are just unlucky. I've gotten many set pieces as drops. However, like most people, I've gotten most of the pieces from the vendors.
