I was on my dps guardian, so naturally I took the adds, G would tank, and the others did their roles.

I ended up joining G's guild, and whispered we should do more content together. Side note to end a great run, I popped the req levels so I could upgrade my mods soon as I got back on fleet. Wins for all

Second was Directive 7. REALLY hadn't been here in a long time. Last time I think I wa a healer, and being a healer vs dps in FP I barely remember was incredible. Once again I'm on my now Lv. 48 dps guardian, and a very kind 65 jedi gave me clear instructions how to tackle each boss.

Cleared it all in record time, no big glaring deaths and everyone walked away with creds, gear, and no if very little repair bills.
You've hit two VERY important factors:

#1 you said from outset that you were unfamiliar with the FP. While some will up and quit (ignore those), most will be supportive and give instructions.

#2 but equally important is that you and your teams FOLLOWED the instructions given.

I will take three newbs who follow instructions over veterans who try to blow through and/or skip trash and/or ignore mechanics, EVERY SINGLE TIME.
