This is all the correct choices for Corso netting 380 affection. I've been able to do this up to level 18. You don't get any xp, but 15 mins is well worth the 380 affection and 200 lightside points. You can max out his affection in this way. x=no affection gain. recommended choice for x is one, as 2 and 3 can both have negative effects at certain points.
x, 2, 2, 1, 1 - initial

For Jedi Consulars, this is what I found to give the most affection for Qyzen.

Passenger: 3, 1, 2 or 3, not 3, 1
Hakan: Any, 1, 3, Any, Any, 1, Any
Narlock: 1
Asara: 1, 1, 1, not 1, 2, 1
Chief Salen: 3, 2, not 2, 1, 1, 2
Asara: 1, 2, 2, 3
Ironfist: 2
Asara: Any, Any
Hakan: 2, Any, 1
Kilrain: 1, 1
Vokk: 2, 3
Asara: 1
Hakan: Any, Any, Any, Any
Return to Space Station

Should net +455 affection for Qyzen and +250 light side points. Took me about 15 mins at level 30.

Yes, you can come back and do the Flashpoint if you decide to go to Coruscant first. You can also re-run the Flashpoint as many times as you like. When you finish it and return to the station, you can grab the quest from the quest giver both right outside the Flashpoint entrance, as well as, at the landing area for Ord Mantell and Tython shuttles.

The toughest thing in this instance seems to be finding the right door to go through. Nearly every time I've run this several people end up going the wrong direction and getting themselves lost by going up lifts when they were supposed to stay on the level, or they run left when they were supposed to run right. So just remember to check your map before you follow anyone anywhere in here. A fair number of people don't have the slightest idea where they are going.

Also, the task list above is dependent upon group choices. If in the Engineering area, the dark side option for resetting the Bridge's shields is taken, you will simply return to the command deck to face Ironfist, negating the need for destroying conduits. But this also means that you will not be able to access the LORE OBJECT which is the panel that grants you a ship codex in that area. (There is a second LORE OBJECT on the Emperor's Glory in the room with the holocom terminal where you speak to Grand Moff Kilran--it is in the area where a large droid is standing in front of a group of computer banks, there are also two smaller droids in the area. On the back side of that environmental computer bank is an interactive one that gives you a second ship codex.)

The task list also seems to skip the Bonus Quest in the area where the tractor beam is shut down. People sometimes walk past the bonus boss that is popped with you simultaneously shut down the power stations. After you defeat the boss in that room and shut down the tractor beam the robot for the bonus quest spawns on the other side of the raised walkway. (And for those first timers, without a player who has been there before. When he gets the debuff that slows him, don't be in melee range. Melee just has to sit it out, which means tanks are pretty useless in that fight and won't be the main target of the mob past the first slow unless they are troopers, who since they have a great deal more ranged damage than other tanks can sometimes keep threat, though they too can lose it.)

If you play both sides, you notice that Grand Moff Kilran is a major player in both level 10 Flashpoints.

Republic Trooper:
Here are the optimal choices for gaining Aric Jorgen's affection while doing the The Esseles flashpoint! Even if he's not visible, as long as you have him out when you joined the group/entered instance you'll still gain his affection points, but not if he's on crew missions. I tried all choices, but only for light side, I haven't tested the dark side story line yet. If you choose any other choices you will get no points.

x indicates no points available, any choice should be safe, but (1) is always safe.

Initial - 1,1,2,2,1
Bridge 1 - x,x,x,x,x,x,x,
Security 1 - 1
Security 2 - 2,2,3,1,1,1
Engine 1 - 1,2,1,1,1,3
Engine 2 - 3,1,1,1
Bridge 2 - 1
Bridge 3 - x,x
Elevator - 2,x,2
Grand Moff - 3,x
Sith Vokk - x,x,1
Leaving - 2,1
Bridge 4 - x,x,x,x,x
Return - 2

total possible affection: 435

By Ameley at 2012-08-21 14:25:37


I got 515 with Aric Jorgan along with 250 Light Side points.

Passenger - 1, 1, 2, 2, 1
Bridge - No rep changes
Narlock - 1
Narlock #2 - 2, 2, 3, 1, 1, 1
Engineering - 1, 2, 1, 1, 1, 3
Asara - 3, 1, 1, 1
Ironfist - 1
Haken - No rep changes
Elevator - 2, 1, 2
Kilran - 3, 1
Vokk - 1, x, 1
Asara - 1
Bridge - No rep changes

Very easy to solo ( I did it at 24). Hope this helps! :D

By Frumello at 2012-01-05 09:15:11
Yes you can do as many times as you want.

For Jedi Knights wishing to maximize lightside points and T7 affection as of 1.2:
Total Lightside points: +250. T7 affection +440
Passenger: 1,1,x,1,1
Haken: x,x
Kilran: x,x
Haken x,x
Narlock: 1
Asara: -3,1,1,1
Narlock: x,1
Salen: 1,1,1,1
Asara 1,1
Asara (conversation 2 in engineering) 2,-3,1,1
Asara: x,x
Haken: 2, -3, 2 OR 1 (both give +15)
Vokk: 1, 1, 1
Asara 1 (or choose 2 then 1 either way won't make a difference to ls points or T7 affection )

Sparing Asara will net you the Uncompromising Title. You can do the flashpoint again and leave Asara behind for the Backstabber title as well ( Dismiss T7 before choosing or you'll get darkside points and mega - affection for T7)

Return to the bridge, no choices matter there for affection or points.

Bridge - No rep changes
Narlock - 1
Narlock #2 - 2, 2, 3, 1, 1, 1
Engineering - 1, 2, 1, 1, 1, 3
Asara - 3, 1, 1, 1
Ironfist - 1
Haken - No rep changes
Elevator - 2, 1, 2
Kilran - 3, x
Vokk - 1, x, 1
Asara - 1
Bridge - No rep changes

There are actually 2 security chests on the Esseles port hangar (on the way back to the bridge before fighting ironfist). 1 is obvious and the other is semi hidden near the southeast part of the hangar.
By eternalquiet at 2011-11-28 09:18:59
As of the November 25-27 Weekend Beta, this instance rewards Coruscant Commendations instead of Esseles Commendations. Unsure if this switch was a bug, or if it was operating as intended.

If you want to pick the DS choices and still want affection for Qyzen, this is what I found to give the most affection. The numbers in brackets have no affection gain and were either chosen for easy memory or spam clicking or to not lose any affection. Conversations with stars are different from the LS variant.

Passenger: 3, 1, (1), (1), 1
Hakan: (1), 1, 3, (1), (1), 1, (1)
Narlock: 1
Asara: 1, 1, 1, (3), 2, 1
Salen*: 3, 2, (1), 1, *2(DS)
Asara2: 1, 2, 2, 3
Ironfist: 2
Asara3: (1), (1)
Hakan2*: *1, (1), 1
Kilran: 1, 1
Vokk: 2, 3
Asara4*: *(2), *2(DS), (1) [if you dismiss Qyzen before this conversation, you'll net out 30 more affection]
Hakan3: (3), (3), (3), (3)
Return to Space Station

Should net around +330 affection for Qyzen and +250 DS points.
Something interesting I found, not sure if it's a bug, but if you go through to the point where you make the first DS choice and leave the FP because say your WZ popped, when you go back in you'll either be floating in space and die and the quest will reset or you'll continue where you left off. If the quest resets, you don't lose the points you already gained. I ended up getting +720 affection for Qyzen and +550 DS points.

By gror at 2012-05-20 15:33:47
On your way back to the bridge from the engineering area eraly in the flash point, there actually 2 treasure chests in the Essles port hangar. One is obvious (in the north portion of the hangar) and in the open. The other is behind a container in the SE corner.
By scottd90 at 2012-09-09 23:59:53

did this solo with t7, i chose 1 for every option except for after the final boss fight where i chose 2, then 1.

I got 690 affection and 400 LS points

By AbsolutGrndZer0 at 2011-11-22 21:53:27
One thing that annoys me is at the last option you get all the light side people are just "Let's Go" and they get their 50 light side points. Dark siders get nothing, unless they win at which point they can then in the next dialogue get the 50 dark side points. In the mean time, anyone who picked "Let's Go" and then subsequently picks "Of course not. I would not leave you behind" ends up getting double the LS points as they got 50 from "Let's Go" and another 50 from "Of course not..."

As for Corso, Pniles wrote in the end:

"2, 1 - return
x, x, x, x, x - bridge4
2 - return to space station"

I rather found this to be correct:

1 - return
(then bridge conversation, did not take notes)
x - no matter if station or Coruscant

By Austyn at 2012-02-04 02:06:58
As long as you do 1 for the x's in baieoulik's post, I got 515 faction with Aric.
By Dashdar at 2011-11-24 21:37:48
This is a pretty simple Flashpoint, but a great into into the TOR system. You can do this with a couple of people, but having a non-companion heal seems to be the easiest way. Definately worth running through a couple of times for, if nothing else, the DS/LS choices, but the gear is nice to.
By DigitalBaka at 2012-03-01 16:17:58
Nice and easy. I've been playing for 3 days and I found this to be quite fun. I was able to go solo (with companion help) through 99% of this as a Level 11 Gunslinger. Only really one rough spot before the end boss who of course kicked my butt. Only manged to get him down by half. Had only self buffs and had no med packs either. I've since gained a couple levels so I may just go back and try again with my new abilities.
By apaksl at 2011-11-25 10:27:07
So if you take the other transport, can you come back and do this later?
By geekgirl101 at 2012-03-31 04:38:53
Gained 485 affection with Aric as opposed to every other figure.
By Falkenburg at 2011-11-21 14:44:08
Strategy for this flashpoint can be found here, via <Condemned> : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AoxFj0R54lY
By Austyn at 2012-01-30 04:11:54
Jedi Knight / T7 - Just Pick 1 for all conversation options...
Result is +550 Light Side and +1015 T7 faction.
By TheTurning at 2011-11-24 15:52:47
Pretty easy flashpoint. I don't think a walk-through is necessary.
By Shubawks at 2011-11-26 23:10:28
Very easy Flashpoint. Bosses are pretty straight forward, no need for a tank - just bring 2-3 people and you're good to go. :)
By Kazashini at 2011-11-22 06:06:05
