I have tried to do HM Esseles 4x now, and we can't get past IronFist. we were all HEAVILY AND WELL geared and still got our heads handed to us. Iron Fist is hitting for about 75% of EVERYONE'S health. Please advise/fix.

Are you interrupting 'Headshot'? If not you need to as he will hand your backside to you if you don't interrupt it.

I did this earlier in recruit gear with people in mostly tionese...
No problems detected...
Dps is science, tanking is strategy, healing is art.

Don't fight him where he's standing, get the Tank to pull him up to the front of the bridge, right under the big view screen. This way when the adds spawn you DON'T have to fight them. The adds have a tendancy to swarm the healer or interfear with the DPS making it much harder to deal with Ironfist. Other than that (as others have said) just interupt Headshot. Eassels HM took a major NERF in one of the earlier patches (1.2 or 1.3 I think) before that Headshot was a 1 shot deal (even for the Tanks) mand it could hit 2 players at the same time.

Sir, your first post was that you were well geared......I hate to break it to you, but your not. If you were in Hazmaat and Dreadguard , then that is well geared.
The fight difficulty is set for columi/ tionese, and your party was wearing the equivilant of that gear. I know battlemaster is set at 140 raiting and columi is set at 136, but unless the party min/maxed and augmented it-battle master is worse then columi in pve. Stock columi gear has more endurance and main stat than stock battlemaster.
The Esselles changes roles on difficulty, in story mode it is the easiest flashpoint. In hard mode esselles is one of the harder flashpoints. The strategy of having the tank bring Ironfist t the bridge is a good one, it makes the adds not spawn and its much easier for the healer. Good luck on yor next run.
