Didn't see any prior threads about this heroic but it needs to be toned back some. Vanguard, Shadow, Guardian and a Scoundrel and we were getting smashed at the first objective protecting the Organa slicer.

you just have to survive around 10 elites iirc. CC and spotting from the healer helps.

we wiped once because of the range mobs and numbers, but had no problem the second try.

Went looking for a post about this heroic...we wiped twice and realized we didn't have a chance...all four of us a few levels above and we maybe took down one or two mobs before wiping. Part of the problem is you don't know where the mobs are coming from or when they come, so you focus on the first few and then realize your healer just aggro'ed two others who just happened to appear...

Yeah, it's a very difficult heroic quest. It all revolves around CCing and...wait for it...not breaking the CC.

It would be nice if the mobs appeared in a different way so that people could have more than 1 seconds to get their CC off, but it's doable, just really hard.

Just completed it today and 3 of us were healers, the fourth guy was 4 levels lower than the mobs.

CC is the key. In other words, if a group doesn't have any universal/droid 60 sec CC, they are doomed... Thankfully, you don't need to down the entire wave. Just survive long enough for the specialist to finish his job.

One time I did this quest with me (Vanguard) and three commandos, we started it up, did okay... Then as we're mopping up the last few, some Jedi runs in and hits the button and all of his mobs latch on to us, and he just runs the F away. So we're fighting for our lives against a 20 mob pull, and then another group shows up and hits the button again, but luckily they stayed to fight. Still, complete cluster-relations for like 4 minutes straight.

I did that one with 3 shadows and a scoundrel (who wasn't specced healing, but was healing).

Basically, after two wipes we decided we didn't have the right group for it but we'd try one more time. What wound up happening is I tanked it and LoS'd around that big rock while throwing some dps out occassionally. My group was able to, for the most part, avoid taking damage while I just kited the mobs around like that.

I'd definitely say it's a tough heroic quest, but if we had a real healer we'd have had no trouble at all with it. Considering 3 rogues and a non-healing specc'd healer can do it...I don't think it needs to be toned back at all.
Let him who desires peace prepare for war.
