Can any HM be duo'd?

My wife and I (Tank-specced Guardian w/ Kira, and Heal-specced Sage w/ Nadia) are proficient with our classes and have duo'd a number of challenging things, but have never done a HM and want to start working on that and our dailies.

Are any of the HM FP's duo'able with this set up or is this just fantasy? I can accept any answer and we're happy to start grouping up, but it's just a question so please keep it civil ;-) and on point, thanks!

I believe one of my high geared tank guild members along with a fellow equally well-geared DPS member managed to 2-man BT HM...
You said you would never let go... you lied.

Unless you and your companions are fully Columi/Rakata geared out, I highly doubt it...the Companion fight mechanics don't match up with the Enrage Timers...If there were no Enrage Timers I would say sure, especially Taral V on Light Side...but Enrage Timers make it impossible really...

Enrage timers on boss fights may lead to some issues. I'm not sure how much worse companion DPS is compared to a player but I'm guessing that lack of DPS will become obvious on any boss fight.

The obvious answer here is "yes", and while it is technically correct, I suspect that the characters and companions would have to be so well geared that the drops you get from the HM would be basically irrelevant vendor trash.

I think that settles that. We are not even columni geared yet so we've got some work to do. I doubt we'll be able to pull it off at this stage, and it probably wouldn't be as much fun anyway. Thanks all

My wife and I, as tank and healer with our companions as dps, have so far done HM BT, Foundry, and FE. We started with crafted gear and ran BT a lot of times til we got enough comms to get a few pieces of gear before we tackled HM Foundry and HM FE. Being good at controlling your companions is a must. also, for some bosses, having your ranged dps geared up is quite helpful. Even the healers aid in some boss fights, like Foundry HK. He doesn't have an enrage timer, just a fight mechanic of hitting panels, so I use my melee dpser (jaesa), and she'll use her healer( either Talos or Mako pending on who she's playing). The fight is long with a bunch of adds, but without the threat of an enrage, we keep the extra healer out to make it a bit less stressful on her.
I'm glad to hear we aren't the only ones doing them, and we both wish you luck. We have wiped PLENTY of times trying to learn how we can manage, but now we clear those three with no problem and are gonna be trying some other ones.

i almost duo'd BT HM with a guildy but our pets were too stupid to run away from when that jedi chic pulls you in.

we were gonna try her again and spam passive or whatever tells yoru pets not to attack but we got a third person and did it no problem.

Passive would be enough to 2 man it.


It works. Even on the stupid poisonous strategy quest when those elites drop their aoe.

Black Talon would be your best bet. That is an incredibly easy FP to run. My guild tried to make it harder so we ran with 4 DPS (no tank no heals) and cleared it even easier then before...
