Cover does not increase your threat? It seems if I stand out in the open, no one attacks, but if I get cover or if I crouch down the boggie man attacks.
Playing last night with my Wookiee and a Jedi tank. Really pissed when the big creature from the Jedi class quest attacked me instead of the Jedi and Wookiee. Used surrender to get it to attack something else. Of course it still didn't go after the Jedi or the Wookiee, but the Jedi's companion healer.
BTW: got to fight instead of heal most of Sunday goofing with Lynk and then in random group last night. Game is really fun when getting to actually fight without worrying about dying every 5 seconds.
