people not playing heroic on Ilum?

From my experience, it's never an issue to find a group in BH or section x. But on Ilum, it always takes time to find somebody willing to do the heroic even though it's the only 2+ quest of the 3 mentioned. Anybody has a theory why?

(Imperial Side)
1) It's not part of a Weekly
2) It's not part of a Weekly
3) Even when 2+, it can be brutal. Especially because the elite spawn is random, and if you get 2 Jedi Shadows and your teammate has no CC/gear/heals/skill the wipe is imminent.

The one guy who knew what he was doing was eleven years old.

Sometimes it's better to solo then to do a bad pug... last week, a sage using project+saber attack only! wanted to 'joint forces' on h2+ with me. When I refused, he was hittin my mobs, breaking mezzes.. other person actually called me a noob for doing heroics solo, not wanting to joing with him...

Because it's really easy to solo once you get decent gear?

And because it's faster to ignore it than find someone else to do it with.
A classic sig that should not be lost:
Stunned , pew pew hack slash , stunned , running backward circles, stunned cannot move, pew pew, break stun, 30 second snare, wha?!?!!? stunned, knockdown, ...less stun more pew pew and hacknslash please.

once you learn the mission very easy to solo, don't even need great gear. just before the expansion when you reached lvl 50 and got your free gear you should be able to do it, gear yourself in the pvp gear, use the tionese coms for your companion and your good to go. cc the gold guy if you can or let your comp aggro them, make sure you kill the healer first then the other strong, nuke the gold, repeat 3 times get your reward

Because there are not a lot of people doing the Ilum dailies, to begin with. And even though I like to do them for some quick cash I rarely do the heroic. Why should I? I would have to look for someone to partner up with, to wait for them to show up and since I only do dailies while in the GF I don't group up anyways.

Time vs. reward.

The reward is simply not worth the time investment.

I do it, but I just like killing stuff.

Normally I solo it, but at least on the republic side, Frog_Brains is correct, gear is not a factor with either my knight, shadow or my trooper. Watchman just burns without CCís, while using interrupts and defensive cooldown including Unity. Trooper and Shadow CC the Gold and burns the others, extremely easy. Sawbones now can do it easy, even aggro another mob, but she had to get gear before being able to solo it.

If you are not able to solo it, then just do the other missions while asking for a group. I have been known to do it more than once in a day because someone was nicely asking for help in general chat, but not getting any replies. I know others do the exact same thing. We may not volunteer right away, but if I see someone ask 3 or 4 times (not all together, I whisper asking if they found someone, if not I go).

On the imperial side I have an Operator (healer too). Iíve soloed it, but it is way more dangerous and fun. There though I do look for help first before starting the quest.
