I'm not sure if I have the time investment that I used to when I played WoW to be able to find a guild and set time every week to do a raid in this game. Also, I'm not sure how operations compare to WoW raids in that you need to know the fights in and out and that pugging could and usually would lead to a ton of wipes and require a long time to complete.

Since this is the case I wanted to just find 3 other dedicated "casual" players and just do hard mode Flashpoints instead. Is this idea viable? Would you be able to just straight into hard mode fresh from hitting 50? Or after buying whatever gear you can from commendations and GTN? Or is the progression:

Operation > Hard mode FP > Hard mode Operation > Nightmare Operation

Also, is it possible to still gear up for endgame with only hard mode FPs? I'm not sure how many tiers of armor there are but for example, would you still be able to get tier 1 or 2 out of 3 from just hard mode FPs?
