The final missions for both were absolutely great. It really gives a sense of accomplishment.

I'm glad they made them difficult heroic +4's with some ops-level strategies thrown into the mix.

It's a heroic that's only available at a specific stage of that questline and not repeatable. Without the help of group finder no matter how big your guild is, the chances to get a group are really low.

You are forgetting something. Our guildie was at a final stage for macrobinoculars. He asked for help, and three of us stepped in, even though we did NOT have the quest at that stage. (I didn't even pick up the binoculars on that particular character). As soon as the person who has the quest steps into the instance, any other 3 can join him. It's actually really easy to get this quest done if you have friends.

Still waiting for people to do this with on The Bastion. Created a thread last night, no response yet.

It really is a huge shame, seeing as a lot of people have gone through the trouble of going all over planets looking for the seeds and now it's just kind of this gigantic blockade at the end.

Hopefully, more people either become willing to help or the Heroic gets switched down to a 2+.
I'm dishonest, and a dishonest man you can always trust to be dishonest, honestly.

It's the honest ones you want to watch out for. Because you can never predict when they're gonna do something incredibly stupid.

Which does nothing for people who play at off times, or who just aren't around when the bulk of the other people are. I work 3rd shift and have yet to get any of the Heroic quests done to finish these up, and I have 4 toons waiting for the Heroics now. No one, and I mean literally No One, is interested in doing these quests at 9am EST.
It's bad enough that I had to sit and click the ground for over an hour to get the stupid seed on Hoth, on just one toon. Same issue for each toon at multiple locations. Haven't seen anything but a few green mods or gray vendor trash yet.
Coupled with the horrible implementation of the seeker mechanic and it's user unfriendly usage, this might actually be the straw that breaks the camel's back for me. Which is a shame, because I love SW, have since I was a kid. I anxiously awaited the game, I've been patient as they tried new things, but this is just a time waster that I am unable to even finish...

I am in agreement that, while the concluding missions themselves may be good, the idea of a long solo questline capped by a group mission is beyond stupid.

At this moment, I am stuck at the final Shroud mission because after completing the second to last mission, the PUG fell apart. So now I have to find three other people in the same situation or willing to just do charity work, or bribe them.

This is just poor social engineering, whatever you may say about the artistic or code engineering of the questline.

Yeah yeah, join a guild, find a group. Whatever. Obviously since you yourself had no trouble, everybody should be just like you.

My personal thought on this is the seeker droid and binocular quests take FAR to much time to complete. I think it took me about 3 maybe 4 hours to do it all with very little interruption or breaks. It was completely asinine in the length of time it took, the heroic's didn't bother me, thought maybe a heroic 2 would have been a better choice.

Now I don't even bother doing the quest on my alts due to the insane amount of time it takes.

This even if it was just a herioc 2 it would be fine. My friend and I got almost to the end of the binocular quest only to find out "oh even though we can kill everything we can't push enough buttons to complete it. Thats just stupid (yes I realize I should've prolly looked before I started but I really like to try something before defaulting to a guide).
