HM Flashpoints in 2.0

I saw in the PTS notes for the expansion:
  • New level 55 Hard Mode Flashpoints: Hammer Station, Athiss, Mandalorian Raiders, and Cademimu.

That sounds great to me. But my question is, what about the current 50 HM FPs? WIll they be converted to 55 as well? I really enjoy some of the current 50 HM FPs, but if they stay at 50 once the expansion hits no one will run them.

No they are all tier one still but LI HM is in same tier meaning for your daily you could get LI HM as a pop,

Reivews of the flashpoints:

1. HM Athiss: Gear check, mechanics were too easy.
2. HM Cadimemu: 1st boss (Officer and Droid) was fun, the 2nd boss (Wookie) was pretty much the same, finall boss was actually tough to figure out (wiped 2 times figuring out shackles).

So far I liked Cadimemu but Athiss was too much of a gear check, needs more mechanics.

Will post on Mandalorian Raiders and Hammer Station after I've done them.

I found all them easy. The hardest one would probably be Cademimu, because the final boss is tricky if you aren't in vent to call out shackles. Athiss was the easiest, followed by Mandalorian Raiders. Hammer Station was easy, but we wiped on the first boss do to a mechanic that requires a cleanse. It was faceroll once we told the healer via group chat what to do.

Overall, I would say the flashpoints are too easy and they compare to something like HM foundry or Boarding Party in difficulty on live server. None of them are as "hard" as LI HM right now, but that isn't saying much because LI is easy.

TL;DR? Everything is easy.

I guess to circle back to my original question: once the expansion goes live, what would be the point of running the 50 HM FP's? Everyone is just going to level right past them on their way to 55.

Flashpoints are made to be pugged and you are clearly playing with a group using vent. So the difficulty will there.

We only had 2 of 4 in vent, myself and our tank. Even without vent, it is pretty damn simple. All instructions can be handled in group chat.

What's the point of running the non-HM FPs? You already level past them on your way to 50.

My point is that I enjoy running some of the current 50 HM FP's, and I don't want them essentially to be shelved once the expansion hits.

My hope is that bioware creates a 55 HM version of all FPs.
