Irrelevant to the discussion.

How are you glad that there is a chance of loot rotting for groups? How? Please explain how that is possibly a good thing. Actually, I'll save you the trouble, it's NEVER a good thing. It's one thing if someone already has the item or has better, but in a game of class-specific loot, end-game loot items should not be dropping if that class isn't present.

My expectations were not my own, they were created by Bioware when they published the 1.2 patch notes and said that changes were being made. The community gave feedback on a particular area of the game, Bioware says they're going to change it, thus, we naturally assume that they will change it to match our feedback. If they weren't going to do that, or they were going to do something different, then they should have stated EXACTLY what they were going to do. Instead they put in an ambiguous comment about group composition that could be interpreted many different ways. Now, if the intent was to hide the fact that they weren't following community feedback but wanted to make people think that they were, that is absolutely dishonest and is not a "stretch."

T5 HM is small fry. Try D7 or Lost Island HM where the bosses dropped gear no one could use and it all went to companions. What a total waste of time.

Your consular should be happy, anyway. The smuggler gloves have Power/Surge enhancements which are quite useful.

We ran hard mode EV last night and there were some smuggler stuff at every boss but we're used to that, at least other classes got drops too. Then we got to Soa. We killed him.

He dropped two Rakata Smuggler chests, two Columi Smuggler mainhands, one Smuggler armoring. It was actually extremely funny. My Doc's gear is absolutely brilliant now, he can heal through anything.

I think its a carefully constructed ploy to get us to all roll smuggler alts.

Think about... smuggler is the least played class... How else do they balance it out? Get us all to roll smugglers for the phat loot!

I'm convinced the game picks the least useful loot to drop based on group composition.

I've run FE more times than I care to count now trying to get the chestpiece. When my group has no troopers, it drops a trooper chestpiece. When my group has no smugglers, it drops a smuggler chestpiece. When every class is represented, it drops a knight chestpiece, because our Guardian tank obviously needs three chestpieces (yes, three times).

The good news is that Smuggler Hands have a Power / Surge enhancement in them that one of your troopers could have used to drop some of that over budget Accuracy.
