So, the first normal end game flashpoint/Instance/Operation.
What is it, and where is it located?

We tried Hard mode The Esseles, but it was way too hard, since we don't have any gear.
Any tips and info is appreciated.

Can someone make a list on what Instance we should do?
I guess we need to grin the Normal mode instances before moving on to Hard Mode?
I would spread the cloths under your feet:
But I, being poor, have only my dreams;
I have spread my dreams under your feet,
Tread softly because you tread on my dreams

First, do your Ilum/Belsavis dailies and get some purple mods/enhancements/armoring (do the heroic ones for those).

You can try normal mode Battle of Ilum/False Emperor/Directive 7 so get some upgrades but alot of the bosses will drop green gear sadly.

Normal mode BAttle of ilium/False emperor/Directive 7.
I noticed it was mostly greens, and some blue.

But just keep doing it until you got something for Hardmode atleast?
After you've done those a few times.

What Hard mode do you recommend first?

Don't do anything that these people say.

Go PVP and do Daily/Weekly and get the Champion bags. The Champion Gear is very easy to get and will make the hardmode flashpoints so much easier to do.

The Champion PVP gear is better than Tionese PVE gear and like 50x easier to get.

Get real Bioware, you're endgame gear design is *********** hideous.

Welcome to endgame, worthless grind.

I recently did hardmode The Esseles with some friends. After shortly hitting 50, we went in there and couldn't kill the second boss.

After a few days of acquiring new craftable gear, PvP gear, etc. we went back in and cleared the whole thing. Ironfist is arguably the hardest boss in there as he will test your healer to keep the tank up and the DPS to kill him quickly-- he will hit your group HARD.

In terms of loot, we found The Esseles to be far more rewarding than the normal mode level 50 flashpoints. We were getting purple gear token drops on several bosses.

We're planning on farming hardmode The Esseles as much as possible now. After picking up some Blue or better level 50 gear it should be pretty easy!

I dont care much about gear at all, i don't like the fact that people grind stuff to get better looking pixels.

I want to try out instances not for the gear, but to have fun. That's the reason i do stuff in games, not for pixels but for fun.

Seems to me like i am the only one. That's why i want to know where to go to try out some Lvl 50 end game

Okey. But what do you recommend?
We just did Directive 7, and it was Awsome, really fun.

Where to go from there? We got some Correlia commendations from it, but that's it.
Not that i care much, but those i play with do. After Directive 7, where would you recommend we go?

The Esseles is the Repub equivalent of Black Talon right?

We went there the same day we hit 50. Cleared it ok.
