thanks. started doing the mission and got as far as the last 3 guys who keep killing me. Am i stuck here now or can i go back to my ship and do something else? I'm not going to beat them alone
I don't think he meant you to try to solo it at low level. He mentioned that you need twinked gear (gear made/bought by hi-lvl alts), and most likely a class that can heal, and it still is hard.
If you're stuck, you can just use "Exit area" button above the minimap to exit the flashpoint.
