The hardmods are harder then raiding. It isn't WOW heroics either. it takes people CCing, and interrupting in order to stop those big hits. Keep trying and watch some videos on youtube.

Sounds like he enraged. Your group needs to improve their DPS.

I don't mean to be rude, but you should really work on your spelling/grammar.

To give some insight on your issue, as said, Hard Modes are fairly difficult. The last boss drops tier 1.2. You also chose 2 of the more difficult Hard Modes. I suggest trying False Emperor, or Taral V first.

The first boss in Esseles has a instant-cast nuke move that hits the tank for a lot. You can either handle it, or not. It's also up to the healer to get you back to full-hp pronto.

The 200% Damage buff you speak of is an enrage timer. It means you didn't kill him fast enough. This is either because your DPS isn't efficient enough with the boss mechanics their own rotation, and/or that they simply don't have the gear for the hard mode.

So get some more gear (read the sticky about gearing), while trying easier hard-modes.

This is kind of a newb question but what is the rating on the tier 1 gear from hardmodes? I've done regular Flashpoints and never seen anything drop that was better than crafted/dailies.
