I am an 18 Commando and would like to run a flashpoint, but I have no idea if there is one for my level or where/how to find out. Did I miss some fundamental info, or is this just not documented well? I have done The Esseles and thought it was great fun, and would like to do more similar....

If anyone can point me to something I can read that tells levels, locations, etc, I would much appreciate it....thanks!!!

Well, the game's sorta designed so that at any given time, you'll be about at an appropriate level to do at least one flashpoint. If I remember right, Hammer is late teens and Athiss is early 20s?

As for a master list, there are plenty online. But honestly, I'd suggest just checking the fleet station every now and then. You can find pretty much everything there. Check your dailies.

I was on the fleet at lvl 11 or 12 and got the quest to do either hammer stn or athiss but when I looked for grp was informed that my lvl was too low... tried to find a guide online for min required lvl for differnt fps but nothing useful came up. Now im lvl 20 n have yet to do hammer stn(which has greyed out in the quest log) and only athiss is yellow or green(cant rmb @ work now)

Can anyone post a link to some helpful info pls? Thanks

EDIT: Just read that there are fps for the following lvls
Levels 10, 16, 20, 24, 28, 32, 36, 40, 44, 48 and 2

As you play through your class quests, you'll get a quest from one of your leaders (Malgus, Satele) to run a flashpoint. When you get that quest, you are for sure of the appropriate level to run it. I was able to tank Athiss at 19 because I was part of a good group. Trying to take on Hammer Station at 12 is a bit low, I'd recommend being around 14-19 before going there.

There isn't necessarily any formula for when you can run a flashpoint, but if you get the quest, all you have to do is press L and see what color the quest is. If it's orange, you'll have a tougher time of it. Yellow means it's appropriate, green means easy.

There is an area where all the flashpoint terminals are, just go to the appropriate one and get the quest for it. Also the flashpoints Boarding Party/The Foundry are located on another carrier called the White Nova and some of the level 50s are not on the fleet either.

I remember reading in beta that there was a 2 man lvl 50 flashpoint.

For the life of me I cant remember which one it is. Can someone give me the name?
