Is the Esseles Flashpoint supposed to be really, really difficult for even level characters? I could *not* beat it as a Jedi Tank with a Jedi Consular DPS accompanying. Couldn't even get past Ironfist.

I ran it with four people, levels 10-11, and we succeeded with no wipes. Thinking back on it, running it with just two people at that level would have probably been difficult, but then again one of our party members was very incompetent.

I did the Sith equivalent, Black Talon, with 3. It was really, really fucking hard like that, no lie.

I duoed it with a Vanguard/Smuggler combo, but I was 14 at the time.

I'm not sure it is entirely a good idea to judge the merit of my claim with how well a class does in the absolute earliest part of a game versus another class. I'd like to say that it's at least likely that if i'm not wrong, we would likely be able to see it in class balance decisions — my concerns with balance usually have a lot of falsifiability that way. I'll maintain for the time being that I do really think that Knight/Warrior is currently the most mechanically underwhelming class and that their biggest weakness is PvP, but I don't actually expect it to last long.

Well, I hope, anyway. I'm positive I'm playing a JK at launch.

Managed it last night with a 10-11 party of three - myself as a Commando, plus a Jedi Knight and a Jedi Consular. Have to admit not entirely certain what their specialties were.

Closest we came to a wipe was on the bonus power droid miniboss after the big guardian droid, but that's mostly because we weren't paying attention and one of the party went the other way and pulled another group.

But Mortar Volley saved the day. \o/

With a companion, forget what level.

As a Knight at 14-15 I was routinely soloing a Sith Inquisitor and Imperial agent at the same time. With a little backup, I was an ungodly machine of Force destruction, and I still felt a little underpowered. I'm super excited for the class at launch.

I ran it with 4 the other day - Ironfist was the hardest boss encounter for us. We had 2 Consular (1 tank/1 heals) and 2 smugglers (1 DPS/1 heals - me). i just healed the whole Ironfist fight and it was a struggle to keep everyone at half health. Everything after that was cake.

Per Bioware: if you were in the beta this weekend and already downloaded the game, you should not uninstall this client. They will be patching it for the Early Access and Live release, which will save you another 30 gig download.

They do recommend a fresh install to clean things up if you were in a prior beta, though.

If I ever get into this, my choice of class and gender will be based purely on the voice. And then I shall complain that "they should never have nerfed Nolan North just because Kath Soucie is less than OP since the latest patch"

Tim Omundson is the VA for the Trooper's first broheim? That's awesome. I'll have to see if pineapples are available as a companion gift.

Yeah, had the same problem yesterday. There's a post in the forum that says the workaround is to use the EA.com site rather than the swtor site. Worked for me.
