You know ... maybe you should become a game developer ... you have such good ideas.

/sarcasm off

Seriously ... if you don't know the answer to that question let me give you a clue: Google

Yea ... that's right ... go educate yourself on the topic. There are very real and valid reasons for why ALL the game developers do random drops off a loot list.

Wow, you want gear to drop based on the party and then you'll be here a week later, crying about having nothing to do on your gear capped toon.

I ran troll dungeons at least 5x a day for 3 weeks to finally get a full set of the daggers on my rogue. I capped out on points so many times, I was randomly giving away BoE epics if I didn't feel like shouting for sales.

What a joke, random numbers are there for a reason. You win some, You lose some. And when you finally get the item(s) you are after, it feels so worth it.

I am having this same issue gearing up my Juggernaut. All the heroics I have ran over the past 2 weeks have dropped nothing but Bounty Hunter and Inquisitor gear. With the odd agent belt from Black Talon. Only once, did Juggernaut gear drop, and that was the bracer token from Black talon as well.

I can accept that gear is not always going to drop for me, but when it is the same exact items 98% of the time, it is beginning to feel like the loot table is broken.

Gotta love the topics where you can tell that the OP and half the posters have never played an MMO before.

Seriously if a boss gave you the loot you wanted every time you ran a fp or op, what on earth would be the point for you to keep playing?

It can be frustrating, RNG can be your best friend or worst enemy.

Anyone who was a raider in wow can tell you how frustrating loot tokens were.

Always Hunter Shammy Warrior tokens....never any pally/priest/lock/dk tokens to go to the half of the raid that could use them XD
Everyone makes a mistake sometime, I'll be there when you make yours.

It's always fun when a piece drops that no one needs or a class isn't there for.

RNG loot is what makes you do it again. If you all got what you want then you just don't do that boss anymore. I barely run Flashpoints because I'm fully geared atm.

Im at the point now where i wont run HMs with my marauder, i am sick and tired of getting operative/BH gear. Havent had a drop in over a week, i got one on patch day when we did KoS and i got the columni helm but thats it apart from that. Sick of it. I wouldnt even care, but NOBODY got anything they wanted/needed/could use. making it a waste for everyone.
I dont mind if someone gets something, thats great hey atleast it wasnt a total loss, our guild is slowly gearing up, but this crap? literally strikes me as pointless. Bored of farming HM's just to be back at the start point with no loot and a repair bill. Its not fun, its just infuriating.

Except their RNG system for HM flashpoint loot is NOT random, if you run with the same 3 friends in your group, it'll be the same loot dropping. It seems they seed the loot generation based off your group somehow.

Unfortunately the only advice I can give the OP, is to start running the flashpoint with different people than your usual group (it should only take one new person to switch the loot drops).

Even 1 person swapped is a crapshoot for us. Not until 2 new members are in the group do we see significant variation from our standard loot.

If the BH gear that dropped was modable and you choose not to get it thats your falt not the games, if armor is modable you can get any piece of loot REGARDLESS of stats and make it your classes stats.
