That would bore me to death. I don't even like doing them until the loot I am there for drops. BW made a pretty fantastic world of story lines here, unlike any other MMO and it would be a shame to miss all that because of being stuck in a raid raid raid only raid mentality.

If you feel Hammer Station is too difficult, FPs are not for you. Also this game may not be for you as well.

I was thinking that, too. If Hammer is too hard, stay the heck out of the Foundry!

This lol.
I have done BT, Hammer, Athiss, and Mandalorian so far and they have all been ridiculously easy.
Did have problem with last boss in Athiss because our healer kept dying during the dodge-the-fireball phase.....
we kicked him and 3 manned the boss on first try. rofl.

When you go into Black Talon, it says it is designed for 2 people.....

Hammer Station... hard? Ok, you people are losing me here. Wailing Caverns was harder.

I have to say that I think the Flashpoints are all really well done.

They're not faceroll easy and require that the players review their skills (interrupts are SO important!). They're not terribad hard so that players ragequit.

Black Talon is simple, yes; Black Talon introduces the Flashpoint concept and bridges players to the second planet. The intention is that the players complete a chunk of the second planet before getting a mission to another Flashpoint: in this endeavor, everything has fallen into place.

If players simply want to jump from Flashpoint to Flashpoint without visiting the corresponding content on the planets, then perhaps TOR isn't for them.
