Soloing Herioc Missions

I'm playing solo right now, which means I have to skip the Heroic missions.

However, I assume that once I'm a few levels above a Heroic mission, I should be able to return to it and complete it solo. For example, "The Esseles" is a level 7-10 flashpoint that's Heroic 2+. I should be able to return to it once I'm level 15 or so and run it solo, right?

Yes just bring the right companion and your set though the drops will be outleveld by the time you get them but if thats not a problem go for it.

With the right companion and good use of gearing/crowd control skills doing solo heroics is not difficult.

It's also no where near as fun as it is with a group but it's your choice.

Another thing with soloing them: no social points. Esseles/Black Talon are the best sources of social points in the game, from what I've seen.

But, if you just can't get a group and want to experience it, then go for it. I had trouble finding a group for Trouble in Deed and Enemies of the Republic because I hit those areas in the wee hours of the morning for my server. I'll be going back to do them solo soon (since I figure most don't want a level 20+ facerolling it for them) because I can't stand leaving them in my quest log and just can't bring myself to abandon them.
I'm not a hater, I'm a disillusioned and disappointed fan.

Cool, thanks.

Sounds like I'll have to ensure that I don't go too far above the intended level. May take a little time to find the 'sweet spot' of high enough above that I can solo it, but not too high that it's no challenge (or making the drops worthless).

Just curious. Does the number after the word Heroic mean the number of recommended players you should have or is it something else?

Thanks!!

Keep in mind that soloing a Heroic 2 will be significantly easier than a Heroic 4. Black Talon and Esselles are balanced for just 2 players, but all other Flashpoints are meant for four. You are going to have a harder time soloing them, and Heroic 4 missions out in the world can be really nasty.

1 more thing - when you solo it on 15 lvl you won't get good xp or items, there is really no point in doing it on lvl 15+, it is ment for lvl 10-13
A: Screen shot or it didn't happen
B: No screen shot, it was a phone conversation...
