Doing dailies should come natural for a new lvl 50, you need it for cash, daily coms, bh coms as well as to get better with your rotation/specc.

I don't need for companions, not without asking if everyone is fine with it. I don't see why it makes more sense to grind dailies for weeks to get implants when I could just take a few minutes to fight the bosses. I also enjoy fighting the bosses, while dailies are boring grind.

There's no way in hell I would join a guild and/or do Ops. Haha, no.

Dailies are also mind-numbingly boring. I don't particularly need them for credits or anything, not unless I want to stockpile huge sums of credits.

Even tionese gear is worth close to 10k at a vendor, I don't understand why you wouldn't want the chance to get that, if you are well geared it really takes no time to burn down a boss.

Yes they are, but they are necessary to quickly get relics, ear and implants. Even if you pick them up off a boss in HMFP, they will not be rakata level.

Section X give 3 comms each and can be done in 20 mins (not doing heroics) and that is me doing them on a healer on my dps it is even faster. On dps I can do all the dailies even all the heroics, but the 4+ in about a hour.

Getting gear is the individuals responsibility and we should not expect people to carry us to gear that we can get for ourselves especially when that gear is inferior to the gear that we can get for ourselves.

This is true for both Empire and Republic sides (latest is a Sage, previous 2 were a Juggernaut and a Mercenary).

I'm on The Red Eclipse (EU) server. Maybe it is a problem on your server.
I do play on the same server, maybe it's because of the time of day i play at, it's off peak hours, is why i'm having the problem, i still find the hardest to find a group for are the ones right before lvl 50 like D7 story, red reaper, and colicoid.

I initially started playing off peak because it was easier to complete dailies (this is back at launch when you'd have up to 1 hour wait to log into some servers), but i guess the flip side is it's also harder for find groups at that time

Who said anything about being carried, the number one reason I want to fight the bosses is because they're fun to kill. That's the whole point of the game, not gearing but having fun. If the game isn't fun in and of itself then it's pointless.

This is probably close to the truest statement i've ever read online!

The game is about having fun. If your not having fun and are playing anyway that's called an addiction

Can you solo yourself to the gear? Can you kill the boss solo? Then you are be carried by the group to some extent. There also many people that just want to get gear, but do nothing to benefit the group in getting gear. I have seen people log in once a week to collect gear in ops. They were too lazy to augment, practice their rotation, get relics, get implants or ear, they were even too lazy to get the matrix cube. However, they were the first one that yell they needed a piece of gear.

Sorry that I implied you were like that, but that is the way it sounded when you said you did not want to do dailies because they were boring. I have heard that excuse many times. Guess what dailies are boring to me, but dailies gets me daily comms and black hole comms, which gets me gear and adds to the groups ability to complete a instances. So I have done my dailies over and over on 4 different toons now.

I can agree with that and if I were grouped with you in group finder we would kill all the bosses if you gave me that reason even if we had to complete it and go back and kill the skpped bosses with our companions. I enjoying killing them too and have no problem doing it. I am also willing to help anyone get gear, what I am not for is getting people gear because they are too lazy or bored to get it themselves.
