Why are HMs harder then raiding!!!! Why do they charge you 50k to repair??? As of now I need to farm for two hours to run 3 hours of a FP in witch may not even end well with the last boss even dieing. You have to spam for a hour to get the group to full then its wipe time and thats if and I MEAN IF the boss isnt bugged some how. PLEAEs tell me and the rest of us you have plans to fix the cost and inbalance of these HM with the time and gear it takes to do them. Raiding is so much faster and cheaper then this.

gear up doing your dailys, as long as you have modable gear in those slots, the armorings, mods, and enhancements you get from the dailys should be just perfect to gear you for hard modes, also, get a guild, makes group content much easier to complete.

Iam geared but with no way to look at others till they show up takes even more time. This group was geared allmost all epics and if you need full epics then whats the point in running it at all cart befor the horse. It shouldnt be that way. As is its a big end of the line or no fun at all and to much money and time.

As Rethoren stated, get a guild. If everyone is geared well, the problem is tactics/skill/lack of knowing each other.

Playing with people you can rely on and you can improve together with should help you.

*edit* I'm not saying that you can't rely on groups of non-guildies, but you know, you never knows what awaits you.

I love the HM FP's!

Just recently started doing them together 3 friends. First time for all of us. Did Kaon last night, and the bonus droid was hard, but fun. Took a few tries to get that one down.
It's awesome that they are actually challenging, and not a dang cake walk like it is in other mmo's.

Personally I really hope they keep this up when releasing new FP's. And it's not hard to get money for repairs/stims etc.

I'll leave the FP group long before I got 50k in repair costs. 2 wipes is enough. (for an entire run)
Deception sin <3

He has a point about wipes costing way too many credits. I spent 23k on 3 or 4 deaths. Thats *********** ridiculous.
I don't care who you are. I don't care if you are male, or female, black, or white, gay, or straight, religious, or non-religious, old or young. I care about 3 things. Can you tank properly? Can you DPS properly? Can you heal properly?

Please the cost to repair is trivial compared to how easy it is to obtain credits in this game. Also 50k in repairs means you were running the instance with complete idiots and should have left about 35k in repairs sooner than you did. None of the hard modes requires anything more than moderate orange/blue gear to complete with a group that isn't stupid.

I found it easier and faster to gear up for pve by just doing pvp. Just skip the hm flashpoints as they give way to little. When you got a bunch of champion pieces just go and raid. But there you get slapped in the face again with bugged speeders and what not that make you run from a few bosses back to the one you wiped on instead of from the last downed one. *sigh*
So I do agree with the poster. The punishment for trying (for you) hard pve content in a progressive manner is also really harsh and not something the current system encourage due to repair costs and 'funny hikes' for hours.
On some bosses/flashpoints you do get back to the boss when you enter after a wipe though but this could really benifit from beeing streamlined across raids and flashpoints to be consistent and less tedious.
