HK demaning a Hardmode FP? You've got to be kidding me...

Seriously, what were they thinking? HK quest demands a HM?

Now I tried this with 3 groups, and ALL of them failed with me. I mean, I am a day one subscriber, I put reasonable effort into my level 50ies, but not that grindy super gear. Normal good endgame gear. And we just got owned by these bosses. And no, we KNEW what we were doing. Yea, yadda yadda, you all did it, HOW GREAT FOR YOU. But why the heck does Bioware force a HM on us, who don't like this sort of HM-grind needed to survive?

So now you add new content, but limit it to grinders? Well, player Bioware, well played.

Like not!



Ya know, THAT is what SUX about SWTOR, and why I so passionately hate WOW: They introduced this idea, you need to grind some gear by doing quests over and over in some repetitive grind mill, to "unlock" the same dungeon in a more difficult mode. Why would any sane person enjoy doing the same quests or dungeons over and over? Thats not fun or entertainment, that's a gosh darn punishment! This idea of prolonging a game content by grind demands to see some endgame stuff is what I vividly, passionately hate.

And especially in a STORY driven Star Wars MMO! Since when does the STORY of a Sith or a Jedi or what contain grinding the same bosses over and over? Thats not STORY, thats bollocks!

The "H" in "HK51" stands for "Hard".

Otherwise you would only get a "K51"

Recruit pvp set is enough to cope with HM FP, and is given free... (sadly)

You only have to do it once for the part. Is that really so bad?

Sorry you got fail groups, I'd run it with you if I was on the same server. I'm really shocked that you've failed at all though, at this point most people outgear these hard modes so much they're a walk in the park. I've been running hard mode dailes via group finder since 1.3 and I have yet to have failed any hard mode other than Lost Island before it was nerfed.

I can only say LOL to this. Foundry HM is a joke as you can skip almost the entire FP. And if 4 of you can't clear it in recruit gear then I can only say it is sad that you learned nothing in all 50 levels you gained. Just group up with people who know what they're doing and you'll be fine.

I went through it on the first try. It was my first time healing since release, I also had pvp dps gear. It was also the tanks first time tanking, that being said we also had another tank there but he wasn't in the threat mode. So our group make up was horrible, yet the instance was so simple.
