I had some guildies run into a problem with 13k/14k HM people. They even asked them if they knew about the FREE Tionese gear. They said they did but didn't care about it/didn't need it.

People are expecting to get carried now, since they believe everyone else is in BH/Dread Guard and can handle it. Honestly? I only run HM's if I can get one other guildie to come with me, and either I will leave (If both other parties are unwilling to get the gear) or I will tell them about the free gear then kick them.

Some people might call me a B-tch/Ahole/Whatever but I wouldn't do it to other people so why should I let people do it to me?! The quest isn't hard to miss either, you get it from the same terminal that you get the daily/weekly/operations from.

Amen, if you are a Tank spec and gear as a tank.I loathe the guys that say "I can tank or DPS" . My reply is pick one and specialize. I sometimes see people say "DPS/Heal". No they cannot, I refer to my last statement. Pick one and master it.

With free field respec, Healers can definitely swap on the fly. Tanks need 2 sets of gear. My main's tank set is halfway to full 63, and his dps set is nearly full 61s

It happened to me sometime that I uncheck dps and queue up. Nothing pops up yet so I was about to leave queue. Then, I saw dps box checked, which is strange because I am certain that I unchecked it. It could be either way, intended or bugs or carelessness.

Tell him to get field respec and go healer-spec. It can easily be done with dps gear, flashpoints aren't that hard. I que as both dps and healer on my dps sorc, and just spec to whatever pops first. Nobody should be too arrogant to respec.

I think when 1.6 came out the GF reset.

I had this happen to me on my merc BH. Specced DPS, got into group as healer. Luckily, healing ain't that tough in SM sub 50 FPs; I muddled through .

But when I went to my other characters I made sure to check the GF options and both my JK tank and Smuggler healer were set to DPS as well and set to queue for HM LI (I don't bother with LI, not worth the headaches).

I have done all HM's except LI as both DPS or Healer on my sage without respecing. I frankly was an asset as a DPS on many occasions when the healer missed someone , let them get near death, or couldn't keep up with the healing needs. Maybe that is just a unique thing about sages. Though I will say I have all columni parts except some of my enhancements. Really, I have had a few pugs that were challenging but none since my first that I couldn't heal through the weaker players. I just make note of any DPS that needs healing and make sure to stay ahead on force armor on them as well as the tank. So far I havent had a fail pug since my first (yet anyways).

That's a little harsh. When I first started playing I had no idea what I was doing and dual-queued for Flashpoints. It maybe just that they didn't know the proper queuing procedure, since the game doesn't really explain it to them, and could use some polite guidance. If they explained that they didn't know and would fix that in future, then I would have no problem carrying them (though if they were a douche about it, I might add them to my ignore list). In short, don't always attribute malice where ignorance can be the culprit.

Gear does'nt make skill. My main is a tank and knowing all the fight mechanics is key to being good at. I know guys who try your tactic and I am underimpressed by it. The guys that only do dps are better at it than the guys who flop around between re-specs. Tanking and DPS are not the same. I know several sages that refuse to go heals spec, I can respect the honest answer that they feel they are no good at at healing. Free respec might be better used to change your pvp format with your pve format.

yeah but is there a single HM FP that is challenging for a half smart DPS?
