His question was how to gear up to do Hard Mode Flashpoints.
Reading. I duz it.
I'll admit I barely glanced over his post after reading "just hit 50" since what pretty much everyone I know that dings max level on an MMO jumps into Flashpoints.
So, OP, don't worry about your gear going into FP's, and just do them. They're simple, and you'll gear fast enough by running them.
