SWTOR Flashpoints 101

Are you wondering how Flashpoints work? Are you new to them or have you tried out a few but you are still not sure you know just what you’re doing? This is the perfect time to check out a great tutorial that tells you all you need to know about SWTOR flashpoints. First, they are not heroics but they will be a bit more difficult than your typical mobs. It might require some strategy or moves that you don’t know if you’re new to that Flashpoint, or to flashpoints in general. This is where a great guide can help you fill that learning curve and understand better how to succeed.

Here’s a guide from SWTOR_VEGA that covers all the basics for you. He talks about interrupts, crowd control (CC), line of sight (LoS), as well as focusing a target. He also gives some additional tips and tricks that are very helpful. Here’s a snippet:

“1) If you are ranged and doing a tactical, you have automatically become the backup healer. Try and stay near a kolto tank when doing a tactical flashpoint to help heal your group during boss fights or difficult encounters. The clickable stations around the boss are kolto tanks.

2) Don’t charge into every fight, especially if this is your first time or you don’t know or understand your groups makeup.

3) Heal yourself in between fights. You have an ability that does this too. Sadly, leveling is so easy, most have forgotten or don’t know this because your companion heals you all the time.”

So head on over here and read it for yourself because really there’s no reason to write it again when it’s already been done. We think it’s a good, basic guide to flashpoints and anyone, but new players especially, can really benefit from reading it.
