Change Section X Heroic

So I don't know about most servers, but even on peak times my server has maybe 10 people on section X. Most of the time it's less than 5. This makes it very difficult to do the heroic 4 man. Not because it's difficult, but because you actually have to have 4 people to finish at the end, and even though there's 5-10 people in the zone, most of the time people just don't want to do it anymore.

With the current gear it's possible to at the very least 2 man the heroic 4 man, but due to the lack of players that are in section X, I can't ever finish it because of the stupid way this is designed at the end. Yes this was awesome when it originally came out, but now it's quite honestly just a pain. You give us a weekly that requires us to do all of the daily quests including the heroic, but due to the low population servers and the fact that there are many new daily hubs, it's hardly ever viable to finish.

You can leave it at it's current difficulty level, that's not really the issue. Just please make it possible to finish the end part without having 4 players.

Thanks,
Ezenthor

I agree. Usually there are no more than 20 people in Section X on my server at any time. More often what happens are 6 groups of 3 calling out LF1M for Aurora Cannon...and no takers, lol. The content is fine, it's just that 4-man requirement that can be a pain.

At the very least, I'd like to see it removed from the weekly requirement. But I agree, changing it so that you can simply 2 man it would be much preferable.

I wonder if there is some way they could rework it so that your companions could play 2 of the 4 roles for the end of the mission. I know you can get past the final ray shield to get to the final boss with just 3 people, but you can't blow up the cannon without 4. Perhaps, once a player activates the ray shield, their companion will seek to go through and activate it again from the otehr side. Two players with companions would then be set. Similarly, post final boss, a live player could activate the main panel, then it is just assumed that the companions take care of the left and right postions, which just leaves blowing up the cannon for the other live player.

Actually you don't need 4. 3 is enough, just one person needs to do 2 activities at once, so to speak, in the last part. It's all about timing.

The shields go back up pretty quick. I've never seen it done with less than 4. Not that I'm saying it's not possible, but even if it is most people apparently don't know how to do it, and the original need to change the quest is still there.

I've seen it done with 3 peeps, it's possible (seemed kinda tricky to pulll off though and I wouldnt know how)
In any case, I've only completed the rep grind recently, since I couldn't be arsed with the mob density when the level cap was 50, too annoying. I managed to get a group even with 5 people in the whole section, reason being the usual "you can solo it" doesn't fly. If someone needs the weekly, has to group up to get the heroic done.
Or maybe I was just lucky....

Since I highly doubt they'll change it, I would suggest asking some guildies to help you for the heroic or go to fleet and ask for someone to help with Section X.

I, too, would love to be able to complete the H4 alone or with a second person. There really aren't that many people in Section X anymore. A change would be nice.
