ridiculous amount of trooper gear

Ridiculously stupid post. The drops that no one in the group can use will always be more memorable and annoying. The ones that we useful and upgrades for people other than you are soon forgotten. And yes your bad luck can be that bad..

I haven't seen a trooper main hand drop in HM KP ever. Seriously, not once. That's running it at least once every week and many times twice.
I agree with you, I finally got my T3 main hand from Kephas Last night

pre 1.2 my guild had 90% Smuggler/Imperial agent loot.
post 1.2 we've had quite good variety, however I must say it turns somewhat to Bounty Hunter/trooper tokens, but the reason might be because we bring 1 merc healer, 1 powertech tank and 1/2 merc dps. Inquisitor/Consular loot seems to be quite consistent as well, we bring 1 tank, 1/2 dps and 1 healer of those as well. while we only have 1 warrior with us, he is fully geared from pre 1.2 anyway. for full Rakata we only miss 2 Main Hand for inquisitors and 1 pair of boots.

I think the system is more or less ok now, bad luck might happen, but eventually you should end up with loot as well.

I'm sure it's just the RNG, but my guild experiences the same exact thing from HMs. It's become so comical after about the 10th run that everyone with a BH alt saves their force users for pvp or ops and only takes their mercs into Hardmode. I have yet to see a single piece of usable gear outside of ops for a sorc. Think I've seen exactly 1 columni piece for an agent. Even the exotech/tionese crap seems to be 80% BH.

I know the rolls are influenced by who's in the group (which might explain why we still see nothing but BH drops), but we were seeing almost all BH drops when we were taking 0 BHs with us. But, like I said, probably just bad luck.

I run with 4 knights 3 consulars and a trooper, and the trooper so far has collected at least 10 boots while most of the rest of the party has none
RNG ridiculously broken

Edit: Smugglers seem to do alright with drops when we add one too..
dont worry, thats to account for the 75% more troopers that have been rolled in the past week..

Tons and tons of BH gear. We only have 2 BH in our main raid and they have 3x set of rakata gear

Usually we have 2 snipers, 1 powertech, 1 arsernal merc, 2 sorcs, 1 jugg and 1 marauder.

My guild's OPs run usually drop heavy Jedi Knight/Smuggler stuff...

We usually run 3 Knight/3 Smug/5 Consular/5 Trooper.

It's actually quite hilarious.

Jedi Knight stuff for us will probably drop 50% of the time. ;D

Know how many JK Mainhands we've gotten from HM KP? Alot. We probably have a pile of sabers somewhere...rotting away.

It's similar for us when we run ops. We go in with some 4-6 SI, and we get IA and SW drops out the *** when we only brought 1 of each.
