On the minefield how do you handle the exploding robots?

Kephess seems pretty doable except for burning down the trandoshan stage. Would love to know how you're handling that stage (cyclone slash ftw??)
The minefield robots we have one of our healers take care of it. he cc one and has the other go towards him. then i beleive he shields up and runs into the first ala soa lightning balls ( I believe though not sure since I'm up top everytime, I just know he is the one handling them.

As for Kephess I think your talking about the post 60% part after the pull in+purple circle. After we get out of the purple circle we have the dps jump in and start dps while tank positions Kephess (one reason we hit enrage in vid was because the dps didn't get in there right away). They can't go full dps during the transition since he is moving into position, but any dps is needed. Most important part is making sure when the tanks swap that Kephess doesn't move and also the dps have to understand that Kephess may turn a bit towards the side the tank is coming from to relieve the current Kephess tank. This is why we tank against the wall so the knockback doesn't mess things up. One other thing on this for any PT tanks out there, our final hurdle for beating HM Kephess was the fact I kept insta-dying from the No Escape move that kept targeting me. Just make sure while placing the purple circles down that you don't do any dps at all (even rapid shots), as this will make him jump over and **** you.

edit: ahh you mean the Shield mobs. Just kill warrior then smash/sweeping your way through. If we don't kill them all we just move onto the next warrior and repeat till all 3 warriors dead. We also pull one mob out to the side for any recovery time for healers but mainly so we can position to kill him in middle so when bomb spawns we can pull him safely without the frontal cone aoe from the battlewalker
