I've soloed most of the level 50 hard mode flashpoints on my dps merc, but I haven't tried Lost Island or Kaon. I don't think I would even bother attempting HM LI solo but might give SM a go at some stage. I find when soloing hard modes that the adds can be more challenging than many of the bosses (they can really hurt!), so I use CC a lot and plan things out before attacking. I usually only use Torian as a companion but I tend to use Treek when soloing these, switching her between heals and tank stance as needed.

If so, do this:

1. Enter the room, but don't aggro the boss.
2. Dismiss your companion.
3. Re-summon.
You can actually send your companion in to fight Ortol and stay outside yourself. On my original server before the server mergers I soloed the early FPs once I was a few levels higher than them. I found the end of Cadmimu tricky till I realised that companions don't take any damage from Ortol's rockets. You can stand outside, tell your companion to fight and wait 5 minutes till the door opens again and your companion exits victorious. An odd way to do it but it worked.

I've soloed SM Battle of Ilum and False Emperor on two DPS characters:

TK Sage with melee DPS companion (Nadia)
Gunnery Commando with healer companion (Elara)

the TK sage was actually easier because Nadia did not stand in bad stuff nearly as much .

I did all the H4 quests for the HK-51 line (pre-2.0) with a level 50 Jedi Guardian tank and Doc (healer companion) in Rakata gear on my tank and a mix of Tionese and Columi on Doc.

It is ALL about taking your time, thinking things through, and using the resources you have to their fullest capacity.

Hammer Station HM Tunneler Droid. The second boss (torch, sawbones, tank guy) is just a tank and spank. I wasn't able to solo the final boss. So I decided just to upload this.

A little explanation of my strat. I deactivated my healer companion's cleanse and bound it to a key. I set myself to my focus target. When I got to around ~3 stacks, I would target myself and mash the button I bound to my companion's cleanse until he used it (usually took a couple seconds).

I might not be able to top my full solo clear of Athiss HM, but I'm gonna try Cademimu next.

Nice one! And it has restored my faith in Talos's healing abilities.
