Cleared all of them, they are fun and better/harder than WoW heroics but they're by no means unfinishable.
I don't really get how you're doing it. Our tank has like 20,5k hp, timed all CD perfectly and still took a 22k hit before anyone could even see a castbar. What are we doing wrong ? do we just need to know exactly when the cast is about to come and pre-empt it with an interrupt ?

The fight is almost certainly not working as intended. Main thing to know is that from the time he switches to Dark Side of the Force (starts with a weak AoE force lightning, at around 45% for us), his timer starts ticking down towards doing his zomg insane damage. There's no buff indicator, I just pop all cds when he's at around 33% (your mileage may vary based on your group dps), wait to eat one hit for about 20k and interrupt INSTANTLY when that tick hits. It's the most reliable way to interrupt the attack.

That should cover it - at that point he should be back to normal. From there, straight-up burn, avoid boulders and kill. Minor additional bug to note: he goes immune to damage at low single-digits and is supposed to 'end' the encounter and disappear... but can sometimes go immune to damage yet stay in combat, thus proceeding to roflstomp your team invincibly. Good times!

Have killed this fight a couple times on hard mode with the bugged lightning.

At around 42-44%, Revan will start to cast Force Storm.
At around 34-36%, Revan will start his first Force Lightning

When Force Storm finishes, have your tank wait around 3-4 seconds, then pop all of his cooldowns and get a pre-shield if you're running with a sorc. When he gets hit by Force Lightning, he should survive the first tick giving you enough time to interrupt. From here on out, you need to burn cooldowns to get him down to 20% for the final phase. You do have some leeway in a 2nd Force Storm, but anytime past that is risking catching a 2nd Force Lightning.

Once you reach 20%, the fight is pretty much a kill.

My take on the fight is that it is WAY too easy without the Force Lightning being "bugged". It could probably be working as intended

This guy has it right.

Here's our wipe video, it illustrates that it's indeed POSSIBLE to survive the first tick, but if not interrupted tank will die.

Don't see how it's possible, tried to run it earlier to day and Revan hit us for over 30k even with CD we died in one shot

The Main problem with this guy is that he Continually casts it even if you interrupt it.. Or if he kills someone with it he just chain casts it 3 x to wipe your group.. so many things wrong with this stupid encounter..

This has been happening since last nights patch, fights totally undoable now without great RNG

Tried today. We got him to the immune phase and he runs around and attacks everyone while we die

It's really just a crap shoot. Sometimes he'll continue to channel force lightning on subsequent targets, retaining his Power of the Force ability. Today I got melee'd for 54k after our tank died to the second Force Lightning. This just isn't worth it right now, might as well run it to HK and then leave.
