Black Talon Loot

Just ran Black Talon, all boss loot that dropped was Aim gear, with the exception of the loot from the Padawan. I remember seeing posts regarding possible loot bugs last build of the Beta, just wanted to see if anyone else ran into this problem. (And I'm a BH so its a valid issue).

Random loot is random

If the loot is truly randomly selected, then it's perfectly possible to get results like this.

I don't know whether TOR has any loot bugs, but I would just make the advisement that random loot means RANDOM, and if the system is working properly, any patterns you may think you see are simply coincidental. "MY LOOT IS BUGGED, I GOT THE SAME DROPS FOUR TIMES IN A ROW" does not mean there's an actual bug.

Of course, maybe they have some non-random loot selection process in place, and I may simply not be aware of it. But I know that's how it worked for World of Warcraft, anyway.

I know that it is possible that all Aim drops can occur...I just wanted to get it posted in case there actually is a bug and so it can get fixed. :P

I ran the Black Talon just before the beta ended on my BH and got two of the blue/white heavy armor pieces, so it is indeed random.

Not a bug.

Ran Black Talon, only one Aim item dropped. The gloves.

2 Strength armors(boots and gloves, I think).
1 Willpower Robe.

Ya so far as I have been able to tell you get randomly generated loot from everything that drops something. The more powerful it is, the better the chance for better loot.

Named items seem to come just from quests.

I only ran Eselees and Black Talon once each. 2 players each.
BT with a BH and Agent
ES with Trooper and Smuggler.

Both runs while the stats where all over the place. The Armour drops were always something appropriate. Not stat wise mind you. Heavy armour with Strength wasn`t that helpful. But it was armour for the Trooper in regards to the class type. The same was for weapons. All weapons dropped were always for a shooter. There was never a light sabre drop.

Stats seem random and I admit that my sample of dungeons is low compared to many. But for every boss to never drop an armour class type for a Force-User seemed odd. So that was over 2 FP runs.

So we drew a conclusion. that Armour class type will match the classes in the FP, but the mods or stat bonuses would be random. Just from our experience.

Did you in all those runs pick the same LS/DS options? I seem to remember it being stated that the choices you make in a FP do affect what drops (unfortunately I can't look for a source for this as the beta forums got wiped )
