This is not about the level of difficulty of the mechanics or how hard the bosses hit. A group of people that already know the fight will faceroll it with less-than-adequate gear. The issue lies in how many mechanics and things to remember are there. Kill order, assignment of crystals, each master's specific ablities/bbuffs/debuffs, Brontes laser redux, positioning, dps "tanking". With voice chat an experienced player can instantly remind the group about the tactics throughout the entire run. Not exactly easy with chat only. Hence why this is a 'wipe until the entire group memorizes each stage of the fight' kind of a boss. Being the last boss with people already tired/wanting to finish, the result is pug groups constantly falling apart. A boss like this should be placed earlier in an operation.
