In every group mission and flashpoint I have noticed the trend that the dps class in the group always has that specific class's gear type or weapon type drop from the final boss or objective. This has been happening for months now in beta and persisting here in live. Can I please get any official word as to if this is really the case. If so, doesn't that defeat the purpose of being a tank or a healer and hoping to upgrade your character in these areas?

For those of you that don't believe me, just pay attention to the drops vs. dps classes within your party.

I guess that explains why both times I ran hammer station last night op and sorc gear dropped for our BH/SW only group past night... Oh wait. Guess your wrong and making patterns out of a random number generator.

This is not the case. First flashpoint I did, I was dropped a tanking chest and a shield generator. Have had more heavy armor drop than anything else when in a group with my girlfriend and her son, who both are dps. And believe me when I say my girlfriend does way more damage than my tank.

I'm honestly glad to hear it because I just must have had an immense streak of bad luck.

I have seen no loot drop for my Healing Char from Flashpoints so if it is giving loot to the dps classes I can't see the point of me doing flashpoints for gear upgrades.

Either that or I've been unlucky all the time....

Totally not the case, i know a for fact a with a level 16 sniper in my group, as a lvl 11 Sith Juggernaut I was not doing any damage. However I was getting all the gear.
