One of the things that makes SWTOR different from other games is the notion of "world drop".
Say, for example if you were playing WOW, and you wanted a certain staff because it grants underwater breathing (actually did this back when I played it) you could farm a certain dungeon till you got it.
Not here. When they say "world drop" they mean any mob has a chance to drop it.
Prior to 2.0 HM flashpoint bosses and operation bosses were the only exception, and would reward a specific item.
The final boss in Battle of Illum dropped a Columi offhand, for example. (or was it a columi OH Token, I forget)
Stronger mobs have a greater chance at purple loot, but I've gotten purples from the weakest trash mobs, and rubbish from champions.

On a positive note, you can exchange planetary commendations for gear boxes. Purple gear box = random purple.
