Drops are based off Highest DPS

I'm convinced at this. Without fail, I will play a Sniper or Merc in a Flashpoint on an alt and get top DPS and I swear to you every - single - time I will get a drop off a minboss or boss that will have an item specific for me.

Switch off to my Juggernaut main and do the same? Never have a drop, barely ever, that is specific for a tanking Jugg. This trend of DPS: Drop Relevance has been persistent for 3-4 months in beta as well and hasn't changed. I can literally go into a Flashpoint on an alt DPS class and know 100% that all of the drops will be related to my class type. If this is the case, I simply can't understand what Bioware was thinking when making it this way?

I'd really like to hear from you guys to see if this is the case in your experience as well.

Thanks.

Yeah, that's probably why keep getting Smuggler gear with no Smuggler in the group. A few times in a row too. Damn sneaky Smugglers...

I'm saying majority of the time, not 100%. To me, this happens always and I can't just think its good luck on all my dps classes and bad luck on my tank!

I find exaggeration to be extremely annoying. The short, sweet, simple answer is...no...good day sir.
Listen, you put Bossk on a segway and you're gonna sell records.

swtor doesn't have any smart loot, all the time in HMs we get drops for a class that isn't in the group, so you are most definitely wrong.
Earthmonkey - Hedarr Soongh - Guardian
Bloob - The Fatman - Powertech

Some people simply cannot grasp the concept the random actually is random. Also, you probably aren't top dps.
