Why do two imperial agent head piece tokens drop in Hard Mode Kaon if there are no agents in my group? This is ***-backwards.

In theory, drops at 50 are random, and not weighted based on attending classes unlike pre 50 content.

what I have been seeing though, is that our premade sees very little variation after many, many runs.

Check out the 7 page thread on it.

Funny... we had 2 BH helm tokens drop today and BH was the only class we did not have.

RNG is RNG. It sucks but that's what it is.

I refuse to believe its completely RNG. There is something else in place. Way too many coincidences. Ill give you another coincidence.

Ran BT alot on normal mode with mains as well as many alts. Never once seen marauder gear drop. The other day me and a friend made marauders and duoed BT a few times. Just about all marauder gear dropped. I made a BH and soloed BT a few times and just about all BH gear dropped. I solod with Jugg and just about all Jugg gear dropped.

There is more in place on loot drops then just RNG. I think they have some form of smart loot with the RNG and their smart loot system is bugged.

Saw nothing on my first week. Just IA IA IA IA IA IA IA IA gear.

This week, I can't NOT get my appropriate token, whether it's the Champ Box or Columi drops.

If hard modes had significant lockouts I would be annoyed if they didn't drop based on classes in the instance but since they can be done every day RNG is fine.

Look I had to run the new fp 4 times before I got my headpiece, and that was the only jedi knight headpiece that dropped... So don't whine about it, running instances over and over again until you finally get your item is part of an mmo.. for this whine post I hope it drops next time for you but someone else wins the need roll. xD
