I try to avoid everything except Hammer Station via GF because the groups are usually random people who do nothing but FPs so know every short cut, jump etc and expect you to instantly know them too. As a solo player I'm used to killing everything unless I'm on a stealther.
If I had any skill, I'd attempt the vet FPs solo but I've never been able to do any solo, not even HS. If anyone wants to post a vid of them doing Vet:
Cademimu, Directive 7 or Kuat Drive Yards solo, I'd be grateful, otherwise it's yet another weekly PO that I'll be getting no points for.

But, if you're only doing the FP for GS, like the OP, wouldn't you want to do the shortcuts and skips? 😇

Sadly, I’m the wife with the agro more often than not. And you’re right, I’m both immune to calming effects & interrupts

My wife’s escape ability is to stealth out from the gaming room to reach minimum safe distance before I achieve critical mass

I would if I knew them and/or could make the damn jumps! However someone (you know who you are ) PMd me the most awesome of how-to-solo-vet-Cademimu videos with all the skips clearly shown and I can't wait to try it myself, even if I fail miserably. After the random GF hell groups I ended up suffering through just so I didn't miss out on the weekly PO points, I really hope I succeed with my solo attempt.

Just say "I'm new, pls take it slow" at the very start of the fp.
I did it when I knew nothing about FP and most people were good and made sure I followed the shortcut, boss fight etc.

Most people are good, or were good, seems lately people in gf have gotten a bit more toxic, it's one of the reasons I stopped doing random gf's. It's the only thing I reroll on GS, everything else I try to do, don't always get a chance, but i try

Not saying everyone in GF queue is bad, but I just got one too many toxic runs and gave up.

A piece of advice for new players. If you want to do FP's through the GF, join one of the bigger guilds, it may seem daunting, but on SF, they are usually quite great.

Sanctuary are extremely active, and for the most part are great people ,'Cat' is great with new people, and tries to get FP runs in to get to know the newer players. My only gripe is that you have to get 100k (CQ) to stay in the guild, which is fine for most, but i could always guarantee to be able to do it, especially since they F***ed crafting.
Courageous, is another, and always recruiting. Revan's rapture are also good, but not sure how active they are, my time zone is different, so I seem to miss most people. There are more, just can't think of them at the moment




*Hope it's ok to name the guilds, as it's in a positive light, not naming & shaming

I don't even have that excuse as I've played since beta (one of the few times I'm glad I missed out on the "Founder title"). I usually use "I apologise in advance for any **** ups" or "Remind me as I've not done this sine the DvL event" or "I've no clue pls help!! The trouble starts when the other group members don't have chat open and/or don't speak the same language. It's far less hassle if I can solo things I find.
