In the process of leveling 5th 50 pub on the pot5 server. I have noticed some hilarious and frustrating things while queuing for flashpoints. Tank jedi knights with endurance/willpower sabers and aim/ endurance implants that wipe on the first boss. Sage healers with strength/endurance sabers. Jedi knight tanks with wrong stat weapons again that will que as damage role and stay in soresu the whole time taking aggro away from you. People needing for things they don't need for their class then equip them right after. Numerous people not letting the tank attack first and just aggroing everything to themself. People that won't listen to you on final bosses that will stand in the fire on cademinu after you told them not to. PLEASE people this game is not hard read up on it search the forums you make it frustrating for people that want a quick run through these for gear. I literally LOL when I see tanks in flashpoints with the wrong gear on and when I try and call these people out on it they magically never respond. :facepalm:

*** are you talking about? Lol I am saying numerous people I have been grouped with have strength/endurance sabers equipped and not willpower/endurance sabers because they don't know what the hell they are doing. Of course endurance doesn't matter.

As a member of PotF that has recently lvld up a republic side toon I can confirm there are many people like the OP described, but most of them seem to be on rep side. I mean imperials still have their share of bads, but man I dread logging on the republic side and having to tolerate such terrible players.

The fact that wetslampigduex didn't know what you meant probably means that he's one of those people that you're talking about. Lol

Since you clearly don't know what you're talking about -- he's saying that numerous people are putting HILTS (not the crystal -- you do know that crystals aren't hilts...right?) that don't match their stats.

Having gear that adds more endurance is fine, as long as said gear also adds to your main stats. A Sage in +str gear is being stupid, no matter how much endurance the mods add.

More galling to me is the number of people who have no clue how to use their abilities, one guy appearantly didn't know there was a skill tree in the game!!

Levelling through story mode flashpoints, for someone of your skill, should be easy enough that even with these ragamuffin and rag tag groupmates, you can faceroll it all.
