So you're saying some people just cannot pug HM LI. Fair enough.

Your solution is to make the flashpoint drop 4 pieces of operations-level loot? Lorick already drops Rakata (and the Columi mainhand), but that's not enough, moar rakata!!!

"Look Joe, HM LI now drops 4 pieces of Rakata, this fact has magically made me a better player -- let's pug it!"

Silly.

Makes two of us, I believe knowledge and skill > gear. (To an extent.)

Another chapter in this story. Two friends of mine just two-manned HM LI.

Guardian Tank + Lord Scourge
Sage Healer + Qyzen Fess

Companions in crap gear.

Would love to see video proof of this.

Don't have video proof sorry, but here are some screenies they took:

Edit: Apparently (I didn't see this, so it's only hearsay), during the LR-5 fight, one of the grey reticles appeared underneath Lord Scourge. He ran out, dropped it and lept back in.

I have to imagine that was just coincidence. Either that or Lord Scourge is a better "player" than some of the pugs I've tried HM LI with.

i healed this on my sorc in tionesse / columi, but rest of the group was columi/BH.

imo u got to be top of your game to do this with a full tionesse gear group imo. i admit im a dam good healer, and i would think doing it with a group of recruit/tionesse gear players would be a dam fine challenge, but there is no way in hell i would want this in a group finder situation.

Silly? I am saying more people will try it, and learn it. Now the time reward factor is not there. NEXT/

HM LI is difficult sure, but not as difficult as a HM operation.

ONE piece of Rakata + Columi MH + 3 additional Columi + No lockouts is plenty.
