Anyone try to 2 man heroic flashpoints with companions? Is it viable if 2 people play tank and heals and use 2 companions for dps?

I can only speak as far as bt and elleses, but yes, these are definitely doable with 2 players and 2 companions. This is how my gf and i play them and its aces so far.

The 2-man heroics are more than completable with 2 people and no companions, so yes.

Heroics and Flashpoints are two different things, though

You're talking about hard modes, right? If so, then in current gear it would be extremely difficult, if not impossible. I ran hard mode BT today, and it was not trivial even for a well-coordinated group of experienced players.

No, absolutely not. No way, no how until you way out gear the place.

IMPOSSIBLE.



Black talon: droid boss enrage is tight, doubt your companion is gonna out-dps a human (well a good human :P )

Healing's hard too so forget about that.

If your companion was absurdly geared and companion micro was actually responsive (it isn't at all right now), then it might be possible. As it stands, you will absolutely hit the enrage timer even if things go perfectly.

The more likely scenario, however, is that your companion just plows avoidable effects and you can't sustain healing, or he dies to a spell that needs to be interrupted and cannot be because you're short 2 interrupts.

I have done it 2 man 2 companions... But my companions greedy and rolled need on everything!

Yea its doable at the lower levels but AI does not cut it in the upper levels. We tried one the other day and its not fun or easly done.
