I'm a juggernaut tank with about 15.7k hp unbuffed 25% defense, 40% shield, and 25% absorb. I have cleared Battle for Illum, False Emperor, Boarding Party, BT, Directive 7 all on hardmode.

I use my cooldowns according to enrages and abilities. The thing that makes these instances possible is the wise use of cooldowns and coordination within the group.

Yes, these instances are badly tuned
Yes, they are very unforgiving
but no they are not impossible, in fact their difficulty gives many people a sense of accomplishment (something the raids do not).

If you hit enrage timer you should find new dps.

I beg to differ. While the enrage timers may be a bit rough, that is what makes them challenging. I have no problem with somewhat short enrage timers. They are not undoable if my group can finish a hard mode instance with still most blue gear and some purple armorings from Ilum.

Yeah, we're all geared in all champ pvp gear though, including my companion.

With no tank, only the first robot presents a challenge (he shoots through walls now). The 2nd boss is easily kitable, especially if you have sorcs to grip people out of the way.

The third optional boss can be Dotted and LoSed and killed even through enrage.

Yadira hits like a wet noodle, and can be tanked by even ungeared people.

In some ways, the instance is much easier with all dps and no tanks or healers, you never hit enrage timers that way.

Call all you want, when you get to 50 and try some of the HMs, you'll see how easy they are

I'll record it next time we do it. Honestly in BT, the hardest pull is the first one with the elite guard and strong guards. I died like a noob because I hit my pot late, but the heroics aren't that hard.

All hardmode bosses are doable without a tank for example my group has always consisted of a 3 dps and healer ( merc,marauder,operative,inquis) 80% of the time merc tanking though. Video here of our Revan hardmode kill for example(dont click if you dont want to ruin the fight for yourself ofcourse) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CzTRY5X8bJ8 i'm not the one who recorded it though i play the merc which i have 19.5k hp buffed in full pve dps gear.

But yeah the hardmodes are abit of a joke that they can be achieved with setups like this but its possible easy, we also have done more than enough bosses with my companion mako offhealing with 1 healer + 2dps, shame the hardmodes aren't actually that challenging.
