I'd suggest at least 146 rated. You could do it in 140 rated but you'd find it to be a real challenge.

I recommend 150 or you won't be able to finish any of the optional bosses, and will definitely have real trouble with several of the main bosses.

I blasted through a good amount the other night with 146 gear (The WH set once they removed the expertise) and we did all optional bosses and it wasn't straining at all for me as a healer, usually let the fights with over 50% force. To be fair though the Tank was in a lot for 69's & 72's so I'm sure that helped me a lot.

Ahh good to know. I actually had 150s before I went in so it's hard for me to judge the low end until I get other toons in there.

Yeah, I've been busy working on getting my Conqueror PvP set so I haven't ran any since we did those power runs. I think that if my Tank wasn't geared out (and was actually a damn good tank) already it would have been more of a pain to get through, I'll test it out more this week.

But if Toborro's Courtyard is any indication people should be fine with 146 gear going into the HM FP's. I healed the HM 16 man in WH gear with conq/partisan relics/implants and did just fine. I was struggling to keep my Force up, but as long as I was aware of the boss/add positioning i could noble sacrifice and run through the AOE heals to recoup my lost health. But lets be honest, anything in this game is easy if you know what you're halfway competent and don't stand where you're not supposed to as a healer and the DPS can beat the enrage. These aren't anything near as difficult as the 40 man raids in the game that shall not be named.

A group fully in campaign (146) non augmented could do it if they were good at their class. Ive dragged people through in tio before, but it took other over-geared players to compensate.

I've done it on my Shadow with Campaign/Black Hole/Hazmat gear tanking. Everyone else had the same gear levels as me it looked like when we ran it. It's more work for the healer but if it's a good healer it won't make much of a difference.

Every time someone has come undergeared to BH/rakata level we've always had to skip the bonus boss, most simply can't keep us with the enrage timer or healing needed.

Depends on if its a pug or a guild fp. Guild fp can be done in 140/146 easy. Pug 150 atleast imho.
