Nope. Need on those until you max your reputation, then start passing on them.

Why is it that people who insist on chain-pulling everything --without even stopping to regen health and resources from near-zero from the last round of chain-pulling-- often speak little or no English?

Or at least, it appears that way, they could be lying, too.

Bads.

Bergeren Colony is flooded with hideous, horrible, awful, bads!

Oh Gods, the bads! (/Me goes to a corner and cries.)

Not that Harbinger, Pot5, and Bastion are any better, but eff me man, this is just bloody indescribable.

A while back me and 2 guildes qued SM Boarding Party, me as tank. We were minimal lvl and with dated gear, but would have no problem getting through as long as everyone played smart.

Well we get a Marauder pug. The first big fight with the 2 elite droids he immediately breaks CC on one, getting me killed trying to keep all the threat on myself in the process. Our healer politely tells him to watch for CCs to which to which the Marauder asks a question about the healer's choice in name that we couldn't tell if was snarky or just unintentionally blunt. So the healer assumes the latter and politely responds.

Very next fight the Marauder pulls then in combat immediately starts on a foul mouthed rant about what a terrible tank I am. Basically hanging a big flashing sign on himself that says "Kick Me!". Then precedes to pull the next group too, at which point we decided we had enough and decided to let him die then boot him. Despite us obvisously standing away, not taking part in the fight at all, he starts ranting about why he isn't being healed. Wasn't a tough fight so he manages to survive and before we can even kick him pulls another fight. Realizing he's going to be gone the second combat is over he snarkily proclaims "Yeah, good luck clearing this without me."

He gets replaced with an assassin DPS, the rest of the run goes smooth as silk. Some people just live in their own little world....

I Greed, not Pass, once you I get Legend, since they have a vendor value. If everybody Needs until Legend, this should be fine.

Agreed. The rules on those should be:

Need - I'm going to use them for reputation.
Greed - I'm going to vendor these for credits.
Pass - I don't want them.

I have checked this, and I have confirmed with people being in the same group with me at a time. The dialog shows you your own stats when you inspect other players. Have you ask them to confirm that what you see is correct?

You have misunderstood my question.

Unless you are having a very different experience than me, the percentages that show up are correct, it is only the ratings in the tooltips that are my own, not the targets.

Not that I can see, unless you left out some details that you thought were "obvious".

It shows DR and Def chance, it won't show you shield or absorb but from having a jug tank myself and seeing a boatload of shield augments on that guy with only one defense mod on his entire person, I could make a pretty educated assumption that he was doing things very wrong.

It does glitch sometimes and show you incorrect numbers/your own stats, but for the most part it works.
