I am just looking for different strategies on this (Maybe an easier one?).

We use this one with my group, which is relatively silly but it works for us.

I (tank) Pull Massey and the Commander, the 2 dps and the healer head to the Medic and start DPS'n them. I pull the commander back in the hallway to keep him and his idiotic shield and grenades as far away from the others as possible. His damage is laughable. (I basically solo him and run to the railing when I need a heal)

Massey just ping pongs between me and the group far away. Once the Medic is dead the group focuses on Massey and by then Commander is near dead anyways.

His enrage is a joke so we just healed through it.

We have yet been unable to kill them all where they start without this. Damage is to high to the group due to the Commander's Buff.

All in all though I loved this fight, Probably the "hardest" of the flashpoint bosses.

We do slightly differently. we kill Commander Jorland 2nd and Massey last. Massey is a melee so he can be kited pretty easily when he enrages. I will upload a video of our kill in a minute.

We didn't get the chest to open, not sure if because we didn't one shot the encounter or because we didn't kill Jorland last..

on normal mode back when we did this, we killed Jorland last (medic and massey first) but chest still bugged so I think you have to one shot the encounter to get loot.

Hopefully Jan 4's path will fix it..

We were able to do this last night after about 10+ attempts, all of the others bosses in here (including the optional) were one shotted and pretty much a joke. The strat we used was to spread the group out, such that the commanders grenade launchers aoe did not hit multiple people. We then proceeded to kill the (forgive me i forget all of their names) melee mob first that was putting the shield on the commander, then the medic and then the commander. As stated above the commanders enrage is a joke, however the medic's is not, the medic will just about shot someone. the problem we encountered was that even after the melee mob was dead the commander bugged out and kept his sheild. at this point we had to do extremely light dps on him and my self as the healer and the sorc had to heal the 2 dps. The chest also did not open for us which is nuts, we submitted a ticket, hope to hear back in a few days. All in all, i would not suggest the fight right now as it is still buggy and you have a pretty good chance of not getting any loot.

This is the best way to do it imo. Kill the guy on the left that generates the shield, then the boss, then the medic. Once you kill the 1st guy it becomes way easier.

Just did this encounter after the patch, we didn't one shot and the chest was still bugged.

pull the left add to the stairs, tank jorland in the middle so the boss and the rest of the group is not in range of each other and the tank only gets that nasty rocket, if tank needs health "Řing pong" between the grp and jorland so healer can heal you.

after you burned down the left add, nuke the boss fast. unfortunately we wiped on the right add after killing jorland, got the tionese com but the whole encounter resettet and we could not enter the FP again since we got locked... the script seemes to be somewhat scetchy still where you can actually get the bosskill but when one add survives and you wipe you dont get the loot.

This encounter was pretty difficult the first 2 days of wiping, but we cleared it 5 nights in a row so far. The first 4 times we killed him we did Commander, Massey then medic. But we tried the harder way last night and downed him and still no loot. Medic, Massey then Commander. Spread out maxed ranged and when boss nukes, step out of range then back in. Pretty easy once you get it down. Our make up last night was PT Tank, MERC dps, MERC healer and Sorc dps. Also, off-heals is nice after medic and massey goes down to help boost hps after nukes. We never hit enrage timer yet.

Follow this and you will 1 shot it every time.

-Tank pick up the Medic and the Commando and tank them where they are.
-Have your 2 DPS pull the Chief up the steps a few feet into the hall(where you enter the boss room, red light shining on ground is a good spot) and blow him up.
-Have your healer stand at the top of those steps, on the console so he/she can heal everyone.
-Once Chief dies blow up Commando, pop ALL CD's, Defensive and Offensive.
-Once Commando is dead kill healer, interrupt if you can, if not just power through it..he's easy but he hits the tank hard.

Kill Order - Chief - Commando - Medic

Reason for pulling Chief up, to avoid lots of unnecessary dmg from the Commando until you're ready to kill him.

Notes:
Chief will sometimes drop aggro and go for the healer or the other DPS, not a big deal..as long as he doesn't run down to the tank.
If you live to kill the Commando you win, but you still have to kill the Medic.

This works for us first time every try now:

Everyone stays on the entrance/raised platform, kind of in the doorway. As a PowerTech, I attack the group below.

Jorland and the Medic move forward and start ranged attacking me, I'm the only one in line of sight to them (I stand kind of on top of the computer/railing there near the entrance).

Shield dude runs up the stairs and we all burn him down, I alternate taunts to keep him on me 75% of the time or so and it goes quick because he's also out of LOS of the Medic.

The group then jumps down and goes and kills the medic, staying spread out, then does the same with Jorland. The key is really having a half decent healer, and DPS who are smart enough to be in range of AOE heals without getting splash damage.

The most efficient way to deal with the encounter is to skip it. You're better off wandering into easy mode EV and gearing up for hardmode that way.
