While I could sight many other areas where I find fault with this game(as untested as any Alpha I have been a part of to name the least).

 

Have you ever been given a mission, in any other game you have ever played, where you are required kill 18( A NON-group quest at same level) Gold Elites? A NON-group mission?

No. I haven't had one of those in SWToR either. Though I usually get a couple or more in every area, but they just happen to be nearby and they tend to drop decent green gear. They're good for practicing your interrupts and stuns. Especially if they have little helpers.

Are you sure you didn't just stumble into a heroic area or that the quest was mislabeled?

I can not remember winning or losing a single debate on the internet.

 Hoth, Ship Graveyard, automatic Area Quest. NOT a Heroic area. Kill 18 Gold Elite Droids.

 

I could also site the Kill 5 Gold Elite quest on Alderon(one of the first you get when getting to Alderon).

Huh. Were they actually harder to kill than the 'Silver' elites? Do the higher difficulty mobs become the 'normal' mobs you fight as you get to higher levels?

** edit **
My guess would be the quest is mislabeled as a 'standard' bonus quest. Usually though you don't get Heroic bonus quests unless you're on a Heroic quest.

Different types of Gold Elites. Boss, Champion, World Boss.

 

Boss mobs are frequent, think Warlock/Hunter with tanking pet against 2-3 Silvers plus 1-2 trash mobs all at once with starter/leveling gear.

 

Oh, add in certain Story Bosses have specials that can 1 shot you at same level if you miss an Interupt during the fight.

You are probably talking about a area quest, when you step into the area it gives u a quest to kill x amount of gold elites or whatever mobs they are there, they dont say group quests but they probably assume they average persons brain is bigger than a peanut and will figure out that its meant to be done with a group

Mostly they did. The terms "Heroic" and "Gold Elite" have become pretty standard and recognizable regardless of the game you're playing. Mobs are Normal (weak), Silver (strong), Gold (tough) and Champion (world boss or boss). Some of them are just stronger and have more health, or they have stuns and heals or both.

** edit **
Looks like 'Champion' and 'World Boss' are two separate levels, not the same thing. Champions probably take a group of probably 4 and World Bosses take at least 8 people.

I was getting Champions and World Bosses mixed together in my head.

 The quest is given to you in the same large area where you complete 1/2 a dozen solo quests.

 

As far as how hard are they to kill? They are just as hard to kill as every other Gold Elite you are required ti kill at same level.

 

Some of the Prof specific Golds for your story cna 1 shot kill you.

 

Not sure what level you are or what Prof, but this game is as untested and non solo friendly as any game I have ever tested..,oopd, sorry, meant Played.

First of all, elite in this game is not as tough as elite in others. My sorc can solo them just fine.

Second, area quests ARE group quests.

I've found it to be very solo friendly*. I do think the range of mobs makes more challenging fights available though...for instance the final guy in most bonus quest lines is a gold elite. 18 sounds like a bit much. I would hope the reward is something nice.

Otherwise, I'd report it as a bug or something. Solo quests and areas (so far) have offered a range of difficulties from easy to heroic and heroic content is labeled as such (so far). I'm level 29 and I've done very solo quest on every world and that's been the recurring pattern. That set of quests doesn't sound like any of the other quests or areas I've been through.

* I also go out of my way to kill the gold elites if I see them standing around and most of the classes I've played are a healer or have a healing companion. My view might be skewed.

I've soloed all the area quests. I assumed that they were all made to be completed solo.

Gold elites aren't like gold elites in (for instance) WoW. I think the 'Champion' mobs are more like gold elites in other games.

I was in the ship graveyard tonight and saw that very quest. Although it specifies it is an [Area 4] quest which would designate it as a group quest. Although with enough perseverance I'm sure it can be soloed. Although that would get a bit old quick lol.

 It can be done, but having to use every single Special per kill with some Specials having a 20 min cooldown, not seeing your average soloer completing this quest..

    I did this quest.  Took about 45 minutes total to finish AND I only died once.  It was hard and basically was AMAZINGLY fun.  Sure beats most MMOs where you get lame quests all the time with only one or two hard enemies thrown in occassionally.

i can't think of the elites in this game as elite, though. for starters, they're not that tough. they die about as well and fast as your average mob in a wow dungeon. i can see where 18 would be exciting at once. but in my view, that'd be a vast improvement on the rest. when i see "strong" on anything, i groan now. strong? you call that strong? pfft.

plus they hardly ever drop anything worth killing them for.

the 4 being the important part in all of this
