Of course the OP's going to find it hard to get people to group with - they're a bloody ninja!

while I agree it`s only need if your char needs it not companion
I been told off needing a med aromor as had custom bits in that where better than my jugs armour
and the maruarder went off on one

If I ever get people like you cross in a group I kick them because you are being a selfish ***hole. If no one needs it for there char then everyone can hit need and whoever wins one it fair and square for their pet.

Because if it was a big deal, it wouldn't be unwritten. I'm playing to win, so I reckon if that means stepping on a few people's toes so be it. I'm gonna try and make me and my team the best possible.

You sound like such a spoiled, pompous little git right now I want to slap you until your face is as red as a sith

I'mma do things my way, you go ahead and be the selfless, righteous person you are portraying. Thats your thing not mine. But I want my companions to be up there just as good as me. I'm not gonna pass on ORANGE gear that they can use. Thats just dumb.

I got a guild to do end-game with, and I'm friends with them so I'm not going to need something if they can use it faster, or whatever before I can. But as far as randoms in group finder are concerned, especially on sub-50 I gotta do what I gotta do to get gear. I'm not upset that they got upset, I just think its a little ridiculous for them to get upset that I needed it, even though they won the roll

You don't have to be a greedy jerk to get gear in this game as a matter of fact, I have geared up faster because people have helped me get gear because I have helped them first. My alt Jedi knight already has mods, enhancements, implants and ear and armor for full rakata and above and she is only level 30. People have been mailing me stuff because they know I will use her and continue to use my sawbones to get them more gear.
can i hang out with you and your friend sometime
but really, you and your friends sound like really great players, love the way your so thoughtful of the others, enough to MAIL RAKATA GEAR to each others alts, thats awsome, also this post makes me feel bad i took tionese gear for my jaesa

EDIT: i did ask the group beforehand tho.

well I should have said Rakata level mods, enhancements and armor. However, now it doesn't matter, she is level 45 now and has BH/Campaign level gear with a few level 27 mods thrown in and even my main hasn't been past the 2nd boss in HM TfB. However, the A team has and we have been farming mats in HM EC and SM TfB.

Still have to figure out how to get a higher hilt, ear and implant...Hate BoP. Main still has 250 bh comms and I can't use them for my alts. Guess I could try my luck at RE.

The best thing is to ask if you can need for your companion. I hve found most people will say yes and if they need it they will say so.

I personally think companions requirement of gear should be put on the 'allowed to need' because a gimped companion is a gimped player when doing dailies and solo-questing.

If this needs to be changed, then bioware needs to make companions' gear automatically level with them, that way, you would just need to worry about gearing yourself.
