My friend and I are starting a playthrough of SWTOR. We've done the Flashpoint "The Esseles" on Story Mode a few times now, and wanted to try it on Veteran Mode. However, whatever we try, we always end up in a Story Mode version.
The steps we take:
- Group up freshly
- Start conversation to pick up the quest
- Both choose "Veteran Mode" when the options in the chat wheel pop up
- Both make sure the "Mission Difficulty Preference" is set to "Veteran"
- Make sure the instance phase has been reset, to prevent old instances from troubling us
- Run into the instance
- The result: we get thrown into a Story Mode flashpoint, and a related Story Mode quest pops up
- Expected: starting the Veteran Mode flashpoint
Here's a screenshot of most of the above points visible:
Is there some trick or setting we need to use to enter "The Esseles" on Veteran Mode?
