PC Tip of the Week

Flashpoint Achievements

Details and fully-mapped Locations for all related Flashpoints are linked here

Meatbag title

Foundry & False Emperor 25 times destroying HK-47

both of these need to be done in HM

This might seem like a lot, but if you focus on running a couple a day it should be completed before the expansion goes live.

To help make the flashpoints go even faster, invite friends. It can also be a good source of social points.

Having trouble where to find some of these flashpoint starting areas? I know I did. Link to Maps here
