If its CCd then that's best because it'll blow up by itself after the timer runs out and won't hurt anyone. The same sort of applies with the tank, grab aggro on it, knock it away or run away from it. Stun if you have one and just let it blow up.

Myself, if noone CCs it properly, I grapple him away from everyone else if he's close to them. Then Carbonize him,continue attacking the walker, and then stun the.bomber with electro dart.Once that's he usually explodes shortly after dealing not much damage overall. And my damage missing from the walker isn't very signifant, especially since I use a few ranged attacks in between stunning the bomber.

But that's just my specific situation, just to give you an idea of how to deal with it. Like I said, sorc CC is best.

Don't get me wrong, its a very annoying bug that should not happen. But simply prepare yourself for it and try and expect it, so that instead of it wiping your raid, it just becomes a small hurdle to overcome.
This. This. This.

A 4th bomber spawning shortly after the 3rd should not wipe your group. I would even go as far to say that the CC isn't necessary. Whichever tank is not on Kephess should pick it up. Tank DPS is not needed on the Walker (honestly the DPS requirement on the 3rd burn phase is quite nominal).

Does it suck? Yeah. But it should not be wiping you.
