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.

on the impside there's a nice little corner in the back of the mission area where you can do it fairly easy without worrying about pulling mobs. (near where the boss for the bonus is), on the flipside the imperial bonus mission is much easier to complete than the reb one.

The reward isn't very good as Tionese gear is at least as good as the enchancements from it (IIRC), and it is not part of a weekly quest chain like the heroics in the Black hole and section x are.

The other missions on Ilum are also trivially easy. For 3 of the dailies, you spend more time running/traveling than actually "doing" the missions.

As others have said:

- time vs. reward: there are too many other daily quests that simply give better rewards for the time invested.

- it's not a part of a weekly. Section X and Black Hole always have people looking for groups to complete the weekly, but there is no such incentive on Ilum.
