Well, people do level on nothing but FPs, either because they like playing in groups rather than solo, or because they just can't stand the thought of grinding those horrid planet quests again. From that standpoint, the level 50 FPs are just more of the same that you did from 1-49. So people might decide to try and grind out FPs and ops at 50 rather than running (or rerunning) Makeb to level up.

Of course, you may have to do Makeb dailies and weeklies anyway to get your Basic Commendations, and it's not clear if the HM 50 FPs will give enough XP to level up to 55 on their own either. The real problem will be that most people just decide to skip them, since they're no longer "endgame," and so getting a group will take ages.

if the daily random dungeon only consists of 5 FP they will get boring pretty damn fast. Especially since the new FPīs are wellknown normal FP made hard mode. I hope thereīs some new FP's in RotHc too.

I know itīs a tiny expansion, but imo there should be new FPīs in an expansion and i hope thereīs more than just 1 or 2. Theese new hardmodes arenīt realy new FP's but if itīs to get more variables into our daily groupfinder itīs ok.
If thatīs all there is it's just not ok.

To people running them on the PTS, what gear are you running them in? The reason I ask is because if you are running in a full set of the new tier of gear, I imagine they are going to appear easier than they will on live. For instance, LI HM is very easy when your team is in 61/63 level gear but pretty challenging when everyone is in Columi. Likewise, if you're in Dread Guard on these new HM FP's, perhaps they will be much tougher until you get a good deal of Arkanian.

Anyway, hoping that some of the new HM's will be very challenging. Lost Island is the only fun HM FP left and they are nerfing it so here's hoping there's a challenging new HM FP.
Ryaffil (Shadow Tank, Main) - Ryaffia (Guardian) - Odinsun (Sentinel) - Mintass (Commando) - Ryaffam (Gunslinger)
Tralyan (Sorcerer) - Echeara (Juggernaut) - Cran (Mercenary) - Zobess (Operative)
Death Mark - The Shadowlands

Can't compare values when one of them is unknown, like exp given on Makeb. But you still will want to to run missions on Makeb, since reputation from there is required to buy some entry level weapons and schematics.

I doubt anyone has run them on PTS in anything less than full Arkanian, since you get a full set of it just for clicking the power up console a few times. Of course that means everyone is "testing" them while already stupidly overgeared for them, since Arkanian is the designated set for hard mode 55 ops.

There are. I guess you didn't notice that they added the word [HARDMODE] to the names of Hammer Station, Athiss, and Cademimu. That's three new flashpoints right there.

Some people just won't be pleased.

He's wondering if there are going to be new FP's that revolve around RoTHC itself. Hammer Station, Athisis and Mando Raider are NOT new FP's they are just more challenging now. I believe the OP Scum&Villainy will revolve around RoTHC ( I Think) but there has been no news of actual NEW FP's but, one can hope.
RESPECT THE EMPIRE!!!
