3. I can't type and fight at the same time in flashpoints. I don't know how you guys do it.
After a couple years (myself being at 15+), you get used to it
4. Shouldn't they, Bioware, let you trade items dropped in Flashpoints? It would do a lot to cool hard feelings for people who don't know the difference and pick up something they don't need but another group member needs. I would have gladly traded but the stuff is bounded.
You can as long as the individual you are trading with participated in the same group as you.
