This. And:

In WoW you would have 3 Items and maybe some stupid enchanting shards.
In other games you would have even less. Be grateful that in swtor the items have another use.

Let's say you play a Sorc. Bounty hunter gear drops but no bounty hunter needs it. You win roll and give it to your companion since you can't use it. This could potentially happen over the course of several raids.

It's just RNG.

I was in Full Rakata except Chest for 2 months with...get this...a tionese weapon.

I understand it can be frustrating, but on the plus side, you can now get Rakata From...

1. EV HM
2. KP HM
3. Lost Island HM final boss, (Drops chest piece.) (FP HMs can be farmed now I believe)
4. Explosive Conflict Story Mode.
5. Daily Quests (Daily Comms buy 2 Implants, and Ear Piece...)
6. Armormech/Synthweave can craft BoP Belt and Bracers.

So that being said, if you *REALLY* want Rakata, you could have 5 pieces without even stepping into a HM Op (or Storymode EC), and you can try to farm your chest piece from the HM FP.

There is no random about Rakata drops. 80% BH 20% everything else. We have a BH that has 3 fulls sets of rakata while every other class in our raid has barley finshed there set or is still missing pieces.

The simple solution is to change the Rakata tokens to be usable by any class just like the Campaign tokens. Maybe not "simple", but hardly outside the realm of technical possibility or a massive undertaking.

Blah blah, everyone says that about every other class. Sometimes I'm the only BH in the raid, other times we have a second, we'd be in full rakata if we got most of the loot, as it happens, we don't. What we've noticed in our raids recently is a ludicrous amount of imperial agent drops, with only 1 in the raid (practically full rakata in 2 raids? happy days). But thats just RNG again, another person will come here and say a different class gets all the loot.

Have a look at your raids class composition, you'll often find that the class you perceive gets all the drops is the class least represented in your raid. It just *feels* like that class is getting more drops, as its all going to one person, but your 5 sorcs are all having to fight over the same gear piece when it comes up so it feels like the sorc stuff is never dropping. Thats the prob for our raid, usually 1-2 BH, 1 IA, 1 SW, 4-5 SI - hence our assassin and sorcs are gearing slower.
