you're ignoring his mechanics if youre dying that fast. He almost always starts off with an immediate incinerate, which destroys anyone. you have .5 seconds to interupt his cast before a shell is launched. He does it approx every 12 seconds.
Dont go in with 2 melee dps.
Don't go in with 2 melee dps ?!? Would you please enlighten us how exactly your two melee dps affect tank damage on the 1st boss ?
The droid and last boss can be a bit harder with melee in .. but an unaware ranged can cause just as much trouble as a melee.
Please do not spread misleading information. ( btw. my main is a tank + alt healers )
But anyway ... a lot of people have outgeared t1 flashpoints by far now and the mechanics can be completely ignored. In LI HM you can be BiS and still die stupidly on Sav Rak for example
, boss design is more deadly than some of the old ops bosses, and definitely a step forward, I hope we get more of this soon.
