this makes no sense in a realistic world.
i grabbed all my pieces in 1 run? dont need to run it anymore? i'm going to lvl an alt. need my help? i get nothing in return exept repair bills and frustration? thanks, but no thanks.

The point is not even that they dont want to help us, they are still helping the group. The point is it is getting boring for them - and everyone plays to have fun.

The endgame of this mmorpg is designed to be about gear progression, all i am pointing out here the current implementation is flawed.

BW already noticed this on the PvP side of things by changing the amount of commendations that drop.

I suggest now the same changes are applied to PvE or something about the random algorithm is done.

Random is fine, but what is not fine is:

- assigning a columni piece to a class that already has it while another one who could use it cannot get it
- one melee in our raid has 5 columni weapon drops now while others have 0 - people need to be able to give pieces they got to other people in the raid group

I mean how exactly are we supposed to equip new players for hardmodes or nightmare modes? We run flashpoints nothing drops for them we do normal raid nothing drops? That is not acceptable. RNG is way too strong in this one.

This is gonna get even worse once u release the next raid tier where people need the current gear to progress.

--> solution: make the items u get in normal mode tradeable between the persons participating for 1-2h after it has dropped, this would solve alot of problems

Itīs serious demotivating to play when u know u wonīt get the gear u want and wth. 1 columi token pr. daily ?!!? and 3 for weekly when 1 piece costs 67 are u out of your freaking mind.. LOL thats 1― month grind pr. piece if u donīt get any drops like me

I just stick to gathering BM gear instead since my chance there is way higher.....

There technically is an equal chance and loot drop, you're just unlucky. I will say, I noticed the same thing and instead just went into ops, where the warrior gear has been a rich yield to say the least. I'm full rakata short of a chest and MH weapon, which I hopefully get this lockout if Soa loot works. There is a lot more loot dropping in ops than HM, and you'll find the content fairly straightforward even with no experience in raiding, even if you just pug on normal mode.
Always act with intent and intensity.

I was in Normal EV last night and we had 2 sorcerers in the group, myself and the other healer. He got a piece of loot from every boss, I got none. I ended up walking out with no loot what so ever and he got a ton of gear. The loot distribution isn't fair. It doesn't take into account gear you have, what you have won, nor does it allow you to trade it to someone else who needs it.

its simple why change something that hasnt been broken in every single mmo that has exsisted

in all instances

everyone is seeming to forget there is no LFG tool if you ninja the likely hood is you will never get invited by the people in the group again which resolves the issue anyway.

its starting to get so frustrating that I seem to think bioware actually wants us to quit the game

we have 2 snipers 2 ops raiding 1 sniper 1 op is fully geared the other 2 have 1 item each

this week the geared sniper got 6 items Head chest legs rifle bracers and boots all of which he already had.

we are a small group of players so leaving people out isnt something we want to do yet this ****** system just makes for much resentment and ill feeling towards bioware

I just dont get why you would change something that works its unbeleiveably stupid and inept at what you have done

at least if the person has the item then it shouldnt give it to them

joke joke joke

beta was months ago sort ure **** out or end up like warhammer

They should just make it so if at least 6 out of the 8 members are in the same guild, then you can turn on Master Looter.
