Lost Island HM should have better loot.

Interesting. I stand corrected.

I'm going to try to convince my group to re-gear in Tionese just to see how far we get. I'll MOX the fight so we can get an idea of what sort of dps we can get on that fight with that gear.

Granted, they may laugh in my face and say "No thanks" ...

I think armor drops are fin the way it is right now. What i want is more credits to be droped by the bosses... sometimes you can die a lot in that instance and the repair bill can reach the 50k or 80k credits...

Now, an 80k HM LI repair bill is a heck of a dedicated run.

There really shouldn't be any wipes in this instance if you know what you are doing.

We currently are farming it working our members thru it to get the unlock for the speeders. But once people get the unlock it is the one place they dont wish to go back to.
I do the instance on a regular basis, almost daily since GF tier 1 FPs are bugged if you que with a full group, but tier 2 isnt. It isnt a hard instance, and it can be 3 man, but the fact that a developer says it is tuned for tionesse leveled players made me question the difficulty for that low of gear.

Thanks for the detailed reply, Allison.

Having killed the droid with fresh 50 alts in sub-Tionese gear, I'd say the zone is probably working as intended.

I must be doing something wrong... I've got BH and mostly Rakata/Columi gear and have never successfully made it past the first boss encounter... I read someone posting who was a Scoundrel who said they had trouble keeping his/her mates alive. The Scoundrel and his/her mates all had high level gear.

Interesting developer post. The fp hm is really a joke for rakata geared players. I think we should give it a try with tionesse gear. Might be fun.

LOL I find that those that really do not need the gear have no problem, so kinda defeats the purpose of being there!

Basically you outgear the content so the rewards pretty much suck.
