I tried to like itm after going to Esseles for the 100th time. I cannot. I hate it. With a burning passion. The immense amount of dialogue making the instance last almost an hour. I know, it's a showcase flashpoint but damn, I hate it.
So I completely skip doing it and start my flashpoints at from Hammer Station and upwards.

Please Bioware for the love of precious time, do not make a flashpoint last an hour unneccesary via showcase dialogue voice over. Minimise it to nothing more as informative. Double the social points gained at the end so noone complains.

/end rant.

Spacebar is your friend. Make sure the others in the group want to do a speed run and then zip through it. Shouldn't take longer than about 20 mins if that and gives back a reasonable amount of social

I've done speed runs of Esseles for social points back in the day, and as I recall it only took around 20 minutes spacebarring through the conversations.

If you have new people in the level 10 storymode flashpoint, and they haven't seen it before and want to watch the conversations, you're out of luck.

But if you have a speed run group it's not much slower than the other flashpoints.

Personally I'd love to have more FPs like BT/this one in the game, with a story developing during FP and lots of conversations in it. I really enjoy conversations since they are new every time with different people involved. Too bad 99% want ot skip them.

I build my groups for esseles in general chat and clearly state: LFM/LFG [Esseles] skipping all dialogues

which makes it pretty clear I think ^^

with running around, skipping trash mobs (recently more people stopped skipping bosses who can be avoided and actually want to do bonus for comms), burning thro mobs asap, jumping, rolling, going rocket boots, speeders, teleports... it's nice to slow down on BT/esseles... I spacebar any way as i could recite those conversations in my dream, but if one person want to listen? great, I can relax ... have a drink, make fresh tea..

we rush thro life, we rush thro game, stop for a minute and relax.

It can be nice to watch it the first few times but then spacebar is a good tool to use

I always respect if someone wants to watch though, but it rarely happens heroic mode

Yawn...


Yes, i'm obviously playing with new people who haven't seen it before. Usually there are 2 or 3 people mashing that spacebar while 1 will watch the cutscenes. I'm not going to force people to skip. I just don't go there anymore. I levelup faster without going through Esseles.

Edit
You can spot the newbie who hasnt got sprint activated. Or doesn't have a mount or rocket boosts.

After 3 or 4 times I just want to get to the action without the same old dialogues again and again
