Exactly. And whoever says that 1st boss is melee unfriendly are mistaken, sent/mara imo are the best dps for that fight.

We had a bounty hunter healer with us and because of the stupid *** nerfs you did to them he had full heat before the first phase.

Was this really designed to be a flashpoint that only gives Tionese Crystals and Columi.

To be honest I don't know how a PUG would be able to do this.

Do you not test this crap before the release?
Dont complain. Learn the fights and go in and clear it faster next time. Using two gunslingers, a commando healer, and a guardian tank, we cleared this in approximately 30 minutes.

It really is a learn to play issue.

1st attempt 2 melee(scoundrel scrapper my main in bm gear) commando healer 1 guard tank. 15 wipes on droid and we stopped. Tank is full columi healer is 1/2.

2nd attempt 1 guard tank 1 sage dps (me), 1 commando dps 1 commando heals. All 1/2 columi except 1 full dps mando. 3 hour clear

3rd attempt scroundrel dps(me), shadow tank(full columi), sent dps 1/2 rak, sage healer 3/4 columi. 1 shot everything except 2 attempts on droid. Only me and tank had experience.

4th attempt same tank from try#1. Sage healer ( full columi) me scoundrel dps and 2nd scoundrel(1/2 columi) 2 hours of wipes on droid and quit. I even went to my dps sage to try different mechanics and wiped still.

Runs after that with me as scr dps using brother in law as sent dps always 1 shot clear.

Easy mode now unless people have l2p issues. Even went yesterday with a guy in 48 mods dps slinger and owned the instance.

Just beat LI on HM and I've got to say, making it more challenging makes it more fun. When my group killed Dr. Lorrik I almost had to turn down the volume because they were "wooting" on Vent so loud my headphones vibrated!

Trust me OP, making HMs more difficult helps EVERYONE. The guys who are going to leave SWTOR because it's too easy (compared to some of the hardest LOTRO stuff HM LI is a walk in the park on a sunny day) stay and the extremely casual can just do story modes.

Now if you're QQing about the story mode LI it's probably something else entirely:
A) one or more members of your group needs to learn the strategy - BOSS MECHNICS
B) you might need better gear - at least A22/Purple 50
C) You might have a tank , dps or healer who needs to L2P
D) Some combination of the above

Lost Island hard is fine. If you can't do it then you're clearly are not ready for it yet. It's aimed at people preparing for hard mode ops and really shows how you are performing skill wise. My group did this is mostly tionese/columi gear, just because your with a "full rakata group" does not mean they are pro.

Normal/story mode is the equivalent of other hard modes.

It's a challenge but its def not as hard as you make it out to be. Follow mechanics...win.

If you really think it's your skill that did the job, try it again after downgrading half your pieces to say Tionese level, and bring 2 melee DPS, then come back and tell me how easy it was.
We did this on my juggernaut tank alt this week he is in full Orange gear with only level 49 epic mods armorings and enhancments the two melee dps we brought assassin and marauder where in tionese/columi gear with rakata implants ears. and our healer was a sorc geared like my juggernaut tank 49 epic mods armorings enhancments in orange gear. We 1 shotted every boss because we knew the mechanics from running on our mains. the first boss we just kited the boss around the room every stacked up behind the boss and every time a shield opend we moved to the next corner of the room. Right corner left corner then mid then left side then back left then back right then right side then back where we started. The Sorc healer just dropped his aoe heal when we stopped then healed the tank. was just as easy as running 2 ranged dps.

this flashpoint was difficult and i got to say... its frustrating but feels so rewarding at the end. i hate it but at the same time after beating it i feel accomplished in beating it because it took skill. though i do have to admit i dont see a point in the tionesse crystals or corellia comm in the beginning. no one needs that crap if there running hard mode most people running have full columi or already have rakata. id love if they put columi commendations instead of tionesse crystals because honestly i have 300 commendations and 406 crystals i dont need more id prefer getting columi would be a bit better upgrade. though i did enjoy it especially going with a good group i already beat this place 6+ times now and it feels awesome because every run someone in my guild beat it i was there except for one so im glad its difficult better than just easy runs like the other hms.
