If enrage mode is meant as a gear/dps check, how will bolster help? You will hardly ever find a lvl50 optimally geared for HM.

Please show me a PUG of 50s clearing a HM False Emperor or HM Maelstrom Prison.
HM FP don't require you to be really well geared. I mean, I cleared some of them with DPS that had 105% accuracy or tank in full massassi gear back in 3.0 and it went fine. Sure it's a tiny bit harder if you're not 65, but bolster compensate a lot what your gear is missing so the only thing you really need now to beat enrage is to know how to play your spec half way decently.
And I'd be really happy to show you how to beat False Emperor ou Maelstrom as a level 50, but I don't have a level 50 and can't be bothered to level one just for you.

HM False emperor has been soloed. So if 4 people cannot do that one person did, I guess the issue does not come from the FP...

That's awesome!

I'm at work & can't watch the video, but a few points to consider -

1) was the person who solo'd HM FE maxed out in gear? I think that would help.
2) weren't comp's OP for a while after release of KOTFE? Can you tell what his comps influence is?

Not to take anything away from this person, I agree it is quite an accomplishment. Just wondering if they could do it again now that comps have been nerfed.

To answer the op o this thread - yes, it is totally possible to pug HM FP's at <65. Don't give up!

Well I have been doing many HM fps lately for achievments and yes, there are groups that fail badly on them, but overall for every player that knows what to do, its a walk in the park.

LIke 2 days ago I was tanking Lost Island (i only get pops as tank or healer), we were wyping on every boss (except the first one) and then we got to the bonus boss. He enraged everytime around 30%. I was able to survive by using shroud 2x and then a little kitting so we did get him to like 5%. Then one dps got kicked for being crap and the healer drew out his lvl 10 companion and made him dps. Naturally the companion died in the first "ice dropping" phase, however, we still got the boss to 10%.

All this means, that the dps person had lower dps than a companion that was dpsing only until 75% hp of boss. Now that is the state of the swtor players now. Its not just one HM FPS i have seen this in, but many.

Depends on the hard mode,HM like Czerca and Hammer station can be done by almost any PUG,however some HM such as Battle of rishi and blood hunt,and the forged aliances one require a great deal of player skill and team work you rarely find in group finder.

the quality of the video is really bad, but he wrote in the description that he has lvl 50 lana, it's published 1/10/2016 so should have op companions. it lasts one hours so i'm sure he wipes. he's definetly not at max gear watching his crits ( 12k dispatch, 10k last MS tick).

on topic, probably to all the FP, and not in all roles all bosses, but yes..you can work around it. most pugs can wipe even all 65 and such so...

The video was posted January the 10th, so way after the companion nerf.

Awesome!

Now show it can be done by other classes; and a non-50 companion.
