I always try to complete the bonus's when I can so I can score extra credits and commedations, no problem. But while doing a Bonus mission on Balmorra, I got through the first two stages just fine. But then the last stage is a Herioc 4 mission! In other words, you go into area full elites and champions and you need to team up with 4 players to complete it and get a bonus.
Of course I abandon it, not just because I hate pick up groups and don't like too much group play due to the drama ovre item rolls and such. But also because I might not necessarily be able to share the quest or easily find help. They really should just make bonus missions be regular like the rest of the mission. I would have understood killing a really tough elite or even having to kill a champion with the help of Friendly NPC's like on one Jedi Consular mission I got. But a whole Herioc 4 mission in a situation like that, it;'s pretty unreasonable.
Why can't you just make some missions totally herioc 2, totally herioc 4 and totally regular and not mix and match like that? I doubt gameplay would be unbalanced that way/

I have played through balmorra many times, and don't recall this, not calling you a liar, as I'm sure there are possibly one or two quests I never did. However I don't think I ever came across any Quest in game that starts off as a normal quest, then has a bonus part, that later turns into a Heroic 4 (bonus from a normal quest), there are Area Quests that show up as Area 4, which are basically Heroic 4's but often the first stage or two are easily solo-able, leading into a Quest much harder if you do not have a group. Do you remember the name of the quest? Is it possible its just a regular Heroic 4 obtained via mission terminal? There are often these Heroic quests on mission terminals located in an area on the planet that's only accessible after you start the Bonus Series associated with the Planet Story Arc.

edit* there is an occasion where I mistake a quest area for the wrong quest, some times the quest tracker doesn't update or I get tired and not really paying attention. This might be another possibility a simple case of mistaken quest identity.

He's right. I do all the bonus's too and got to this one. Parts 1 and 2 are the same as ALL other bonus missions in game, but part 3 is a heroic 4. Hard to find help cause you have to find 3 others that are on that part at the same time. And since there's hardly anyone playing this game anymore, there is noone to help. Not gonna waste my time waiting for 3 seperate folks to catch up to that quest cause I'll be on next planet in 5 minutes. Would really like to know what the item is from finishing it. Closest I got was 2 of us with our pets out, but at the end part the guy was too hard for us and we needed more, noone around so we just scrapped it. Prolly just some random orange gear that looks like shiz

I don't remember this at all and I've been through the Imp Balmorra Bonus Series six times since launch (Pub- twice...shows where my loyalties are ). Do you have the exact name of the Heroic 4?

There are always Heriocs in bonus area. Just like any other Heriocs on the planet, they are optional. you don't need to do the Herioc in order to complete the "Bonus Series" quest.

Assassine is a female assassin in French. None of what you said sounds like a female assassin.

If you meant asinine, then I don't find it foolish either. It makes sense that you would continue on the path of something and discover something bigger and badder than you thought. This big and bad thing would then require you to gather forces to overcome.

Yeah, I remember this, its the republic bonus series.
It can be easily missed, because once you've done the first 2 stages, it can be handed in at any point after that, and that's what happens, coming back to hand in and pick up missions, you can hand this one in without even realizing, and it shows as everything completed.

Sort of on subject, the devs really need to go back and re-tune any/all the bonus series heroics into H2's, as it is 10 times harder to get a group together for these, as most of them are locked out to anyone unless they are on the bonus series. Add to this the fact that lots of people dont even do the bonus series, they just head to the next planet.
They changed the H4's into H2's in the belsavis daily area for this very reason, and they really need to do it with the leveling bonus series as well.
