It's the first few flashpoints. They're meant to be fairly simple - here's the thing, you and I and probably most of the people on these boards have done this whole hotbar MMO thing before. But not everybody has our experience and BioWare would be failing if they threw out the difficulty curve. Can you imagine the rage if Kael'thas style mechanics were found in Black Talon? New players would be completely overwhelmed, probably yelled at by some of the less socially skilled members of our hobby, and likely quit out of frustration.

I actually think TOR does quite a good job of gradually introducing staple mechanics quite quickly throughout the first few FPs, starting with simple not standing in the fire and progressing to add control in Hammer and then in Athiss you get introduced to Kael's phoenixes.

Yeah it's simple for veterans but give it time.

Difficulty curve. You need one for a good game.
