The story in short:
We are 3 Shadows and 1 Scoundrel go for Essels Hardmode.
Thats been really hard for us as we are mostly noobs.. But after dozens of wipes we managed to complete it.. And guess what - the loot from last boss was Columi Token restricted for Jedi Knight(!)

Thats just bizzare.. We don`t have any JK in our group so this high-level prize just useless..

Why such thing happen?

Random loot is random in almost every mmo or game with dropped items, heroics were not meant to be done without the base tank, healer, and 2 dps.

If you somehow did complete it with an odd group then good for you but the loot system is setup in this and many other games to actually be random to possibly reward multiple specs/classes that are running the dungeon not be funneled down to 1 or 2 classes who want to be different and not use the proper group setup.

Random element in looting is part of fun. Do you think you are entitled to loot every time you raid? Well, you have never been and you shouldn't be.

While I agree that random loot is random and that's the way it always has been, what you said is just plain silly in light of what he said about his party. There is no reason at all to assume that his party somehow had a "wrong" composition without the proper roles. There were three shadows and one scoundrel. Shadows can dps and tank, scoundrels can dps and heal. Most likely, one of the shadows was a tank, the scoundrel was a healer, and the other two shadows were dps.

Greetings folks,

As has been correctly said above, the loot is randomly generated. There is no guarantee that when you kill a boss you get loot for your class.

Thank you for your time.

1 shadow is Tank, 2 shadows is DPS and Scoundrel is Healer.

I see no problem if Loot will be random.
But what "random" is it if you cant nor use, not sell this loot?!?
Its Bind on Pickup and it for a different class..

Why is the high-level prize cant be generated accordingly to the group participants?

Reason 2 words that are corner-stones of MMO's since they first came into the gaming scene.... TIME SINK!

Always chance that NO useful loot will drop for a group, thus it only adds to number of times you'll have to run these flashpoints/operations. If loot came easy people would burn threw content far too fast, and developers would be unable by any stretch to roll out content to keep its playerbase entertained.
