I see now we can have weekly operations. I have been in a few operations but I have never set one up. Now that I have two end level characters I would now like to do more operations and finally see all the fine story arks that Bioware has created.

The problem is I don't know how to initiate a operation. I think it would work like you would keep inviting people to group until a have the number of people you need for the content you want to do. If I am wrong please tell me how how. I want to learn.

I also have one more question how do you pick from the different modes? What I mean by my last statement is how do i select story mode, hard mode, or nightmare mode.

Thanks in advance for anyone's response

Not sure about setting the difficulty, but I suspect it might have something to do with rightclicking your portrait. At least setting group to ops group has. Maybe as a start it would be better for you to join groups of other people to see how it works.

It might be a bit hard to find a group for SM EV/KP these days, which are operation best for learning. But personally my first operation ever was EV HM with no experience and on lvl 50. So it doesnt really matter if you do SM or HM of these lvl 50 operations. More important is if the group is legit.

What do you mean by if the group is legit?

To "create" an operation all you have to do is find people (8 or 16) that also want to do the operation. The OPs leader must right click on his own portrait when he starts a group and "Convert to OPS group". This allows the group to expand to up to 24 players.

Once you have expanded your OPs group, and found members that intend to enter the instance with you, all you have to do is walk in. (Assuming the leader of the Operation and every member in the group are not locked out you will start from the beginning.)

If you want to change the difficulty or size of the Operation, right click on your portrait again and adjust the setting. (**Everyone has to be out of the instance before you change the setting.**)
Settings include:
8man Story Mode
8man Hard Mode
8Man Nightmare Mode
16man...
16man...
16man...

Nothing to difficult. If you are new to forming OPs I would suggest not trying to form HM or NiM groups for TFB or SV. It wont go over well.
