I made the switch to The Bastion with most my 50s from other servers, in hopes of playing the game to its fullest... PvP is still pretty live on the server and i dont have a long wait at any level, but the FPs(both reg and hardmode) are nearly impossible to come by. I sit on my toon for upwards of an hour and get nothing. and this is for all lvls. ive been working on a smuggler since there's nothing much to do on my shadow, and still cant get in anything... So i wanna know....are FPs dead?!

I've been running HM FPs in group finder on two toons pretty much every day for the past couple months on the Shadowland server. My dps can take up to 45 minutes on a slow day, but usually pops between 20-30 minutes. My tank usually pops the instant I que, but have waited as long as ten minutes. I'm not sure about the normal mode FP's, haven't had a low level toon since early spring.

As a tank I've had no problems in general, it either pops instantly or very quickly, both for normal FPs while levelling and HM at 50. I'd say it's probably more of an issue for DPS than for healers and tanks, but there definitely seems to be a lot of activity.

Ya i could see regs bein a issue, but today was the first time i was actually able to run a HM... and it took about an hour and a half in the queue... i guess its just gonna take a lil extra patience as a DPS lol....

We do. Daily HMs on 3 toons, ques for DPS are usualy long, since most ppl preffer to que up with their guilds, (since 4 man que has been fixed). most ppl in my guild preffer to do that. to speed up ur que, get tank or healer friend to que up with you.

Meh, I'm lvl 33 atm, the earlier FPs popped almost instantly since I queue as healer, however after I hit 30 it really is slowing down... sometimes it takes up to an hour (The Red Eclipse)

I recommend turning on the queue and leaving it on while you quest and pvp. Bailing on a warzone or having to travel back to where you were questing is a small price to pay for running a 10-49 flashpoint as a dps.
A classic sig that should not be lost:
Stunned , pew pew hack slash , stunned , running backward circles, stunned cannot move, pew pew, break stun, 30 second snare, wha?!?!!? stunned, knockdown, ...less stun more pew pew and hacknslash please.

Run them almost every day on 2 toons. Healer varies from instant to 20 mins. DPS is usually 15 to 30 mins, but I have waited 45 mins once. I just usually go to Black Hole and start the dailies. If group pops up I go, if not at least I got something done while waiting. Only annoying thing is coming back to BH after with all those loading screens when Legacy travel is on cooldown.

About 20% of the time I take my DPS with the guild masters tank. Pretty sure he would rather me take my main (healer), but healer can get a group way faster than my DPS.

At least on our server I donít think the problem is lack of people using Group Finder for Daily HM FP, it is the lack of Tanks the server. Never been grouped with a tank and my healer where the group was instant, never been grouped with my DPS and a tank where it took more than 5 mins and 99% of the time it is instant too.
