Hi,

the title of this Thread says everything, I guess.

What is the best order of the flashpoints at LvL50?
I mean normal and HARDmodes.

I found this:
  • The Black Talon (8), Empire only.
  • The Esseles (8), Republic only.
  • Hammer Station (15), Empire and Republic.
  • Athiss (19), Empire and Republic.
  • Mandalorian Raiders (23), Empire and Republic.
  • Cademimu (24), Empire and Republic.
  • Boarding Party (32), Empire only.
  • Taral V (32), Republic only.
  • Jedi Prisoner (33), Republic only.
  • The Foundry (35), Empire only.
  • Maelstrom Prison (35), Republic only.
  • Colicoid War Game (39), Empire and Republic.
  • The Red Reaper (43), Empire and Republic.
  • Directive 7 (47), Empire and Republic.
  • The Battle of Ilum (49), Empire and Republic.
  • The False Emperor (49), Empire and Republic.

Is this order for the Hardmode versions as well correct?

When I hit 50, which flashpoints can I clear easily on hardmode?

There are only 6 hardmodes available on the Empire side.

The order I suggest is Black Talon --> Boarding party (skip last boss) --> False Emperor (long but doable, skip Sith entity if you have trouble with enrage) --> Battle of Ilum (3rd boss is not melee dps friendly, bring 2 ranged dps if you can) --> Directive 7 --> The Foundry (cuz Revan is bugged).

Once you are geared out, you can go back to the bosses you skipped.

The drops off the last boss of each flashpoint are:


Black Talon: Columi bracers
Boarding Party: Columi Gloves
False Emperor: Columi Chest
Battle of Ilum: Columi Offhand
Directive 7: Columi Leggings
The Foundry: Columi boots

Thank you for the fast response!
Great.

When Revan will be fixed, the Foundry move forward in you order, right?


I am a little bit confused.
You are writing, that Columi(T2) only drops in the Flashpoint Hardmodes.


Tionese (T1) = ?
Columi (T2) = Flashpoints Hardmodes
T3 = ?

I didn't see the Columi belt, helmet, or main hand weapon in this list. What hard mode bosses drop these?

Some of the info there are highly incorrect.
There are 6 dailies on Ilum but actually 11 dailies on Belsavis.


Ilum – 8 Daily Commendations
Ilum base
• A Tightened Grip – Lord Tetsu – x1 Commendation
• Defend the Shipment – Major Dermian - x1 Commendation
• Operation Shatterstorm – Operative Che’nash - x1 Commendation
• Poisonous Strategy (Heroic 2+) – G-4T - x3 Commendation
Imperial Waystation
• Rightful Owner – Captain Barstead - x1 Commendation
• Sabotage – Colonel Baramak - x1 Commendation

Belsavis – 17 Daily Commendations
Imperial Domination Outpost
• [Heroic 4+] – Lights Out – Corporal Haddon – 3x Daily Commendations + orange companion weapons or blue class VI prototype box
• [Heroic 4+] – Old Enemies – Lord Shaar – 3x Daily Commendations + purple tier 22 armoring or blue class VI prototype box
• Invisible Threat – N4-71- 1x Daily Commendations
• Unintended Consequences – Major Charkron – 1x Daily Commendation
Deep Launchpoint Transporter
• Reluctant Volunteers – Darth Synar – 1x Daily Commendation
• Ancient Transmissions – AR-72 - 1x Daily Commendation
• Found in Translation – Specialist Nattis - 1x Daily Commendation

Signal Monitoring Center
• Droid Malfunction – SD-9 - 1x Daily Commendation
• [Heroic 2+] Freeing the Fallen – 3x Daily Commendations + purple tier 22 mods or blue class VI prototype box
• The Carriers of Xenovirus Prime - 1x Daily Commendation

Tunnel north of Signal Monitoring Center
• Deadly Mutations - 1x Daily Commendation

Also for Hardmode False Emperor, it is definitely worth the time invested. The last boss drops the Columi chest piece and prior bosses drop nice stuff including Tionese implants, and Tionese main hand.

I have a more detailed guide coming up on endgame gearing for Empire players soonish.

They don't drop from hard mode flashpoints. If you dont raid you have to slowly (and I really mean slowly) gather columni commendations off the daily and weekly missions.

Other than that the item tokens drop in normal mode operations (and I think they also drop in hard mixed with rakata but can't comment on the nightmare drops), and columni commendations you should get from every hard/nightmare boss in operations aswell.

Had 2x Columi helm drop in normal mode Bonethrasher today, got unlucky on the auto-assigned loot though.

Dunno, we went straight into Hard Modes without doing any of the normal 50 instances. Cleared Black Talon and Directive HM as fresh 50s. Some of the enrage timers were rough with our low DPS, but neither was especially difficult.
