I hate tanking Kaon so much.

I like healing it alright but it's kind of tiresome.

The other day my new Marauder got Kaon, and I went in there the first time as a DPS. I did all the things that as a healer and PARTICULARLY as a tank I wish DPS would do - run out of bad things, kill dangerous things first, interrupt mercs, etc. It went great and I had a blast!

And then I realized why Kaons are usually so aggravating - it is the Tier 1 FP most dependent on DPS being aware for things to go well.

I think it'd be great if they upped the difficulty and stuck it in Tier 2. It is the only Tier 1 FP that anyone might specifically queue for with any regularity, which I'm sure adds to why a lot of us see it more often than any other. Why not isolate it in it's own little pool of people doing the Rakghoul Weekly. At least then you're guaranteed a decent group if they're already capable of doing LI.
Time for a nap.

People who quit a flashpoint after they see which one it is get added to my ignore list...
You queued for all of them, so live with the one you randomly get.
If you don't want one of them, either live with not getting the bh comms or live with the random luck of the draw.
Dps is science, tanking is strategy, healing is art.

I just exit area and back to queue. I can not play Kaon anymore.

I have 6 char 50's and I do the group finder daily with all my chars, every day, at least 3x kaon.
You do realize you can que for specific FPs right?
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?

You know that he doesn't get the BH Comms then?!

For me pe3rsonally it is no problem. I havn't seen bugs in kaon at all.
I do not play FPs if i do not feel lucky with every FP (and i have 9 lvl 50 char right now).

I see there is a lot of misinformation in this thread, so going to attempt to correct that. Here we go.

Mercenary's channel can be interrupted. I healed it in full Tionese/Recruit soon as I dinged 50 and then I healed HM LI. Gear is not the problem. The last 'boss' fight is actually 3 bosses, they are all bosses. The middle is not the only boss and the other two are not adds. Only one of the other two cannot be taunted.

Directive 7, Battle for Ilum and False Emperor are not solely level 50 content. You can do each before you're level 50. They are in the SM random Group Finder queue.

Kaon it's easy to do, but the rate compared to the others FP's it's insane...

I do 6 FP per day, at least 4 kaon, there is something wrong.

I resent this remark. If I'm not standing next to something, I can't kill it, and quite often, lag means that whether I run or not, I still get blown up.

You can't make up stuff like that.
