I am definitely not bragging. I am demonstrating that the first people who downed Soa NM used three melee. Thus, the fights can't be too "melee unfriendly".
After coming to that conclusion, I stated that the OP must be doing something wrong.
Edit: I would add that I don't believe encounters are "horribly designed" but merely too easy, but I would have to agree that there are too many bugs. Hopefully Bioware gets their act together in the next few patches.
That it's possible doesn't mean anything. No one said it isn't possible. All it takes to see that the encounter is melee unfriendly is to... look at the encounter. Look at the mechanics of ball lightning.
Look at Bonethrasher everything.
