I ran Esseles HM last night for the first time, and as a Smuggler I found this instance to be frustrating. The two primary fights are obviously Ironfist and Vokk - with Ironfist, my ranged interrupt - Distraction - did not appear to work. We were able to keep him interrupted after the 4th or 5th attempt, but my teammates had to pick that up.

With Vokk, the lightning is an absolute Smuggler-killer ... for us to do any respectable dps, we have to go in cover; however, if the lightning appears on you while in cover you're pretty much dead. I had zero lag and quick reflexes, I would move forward the instant the mark appeared on me, yet I was still hit almost every single time. I wound up having to do a dance, scan the field for the mark and pick my moments to go in cover. And you DO need to be in cover for 1) dps (vs. enrage timer) and 2) to defend against the saber throws ... I would love to hear from fellow smugglers on some advice on how to handle that fight, because I really struggled with it
Common sense isn't ...
