I am currently trying to beat the sand demon on Tatooine. I have tried using Vette for some more firepower as well as using Quinn for healing...don't seem to get very far without getting killed. I am a level 26 sith jugg, the boss is a level 26 boss, therefore iw as thinking about coming back to this once I get to level 28 just before leaving Tatooine. But just in case, doea anyone have any tips on how to beat this guy? Thanx!!

You don't actually have to fight it, so I'm assuming you're just doing it for fun.

Bringing a friend is the easiest solution, but if you want to solo it here's what I would do:

Use Vette as your companion, and let her get initial threat. Stand 30m away from her and taunt, then let the mob run all the way to you. Don't attack it just yet, just let Vette whittle it down. Vette should pull aggro as soon as taunt is over, and the mob should basically be running back and forth between you for awhile. Repeat this until the little adds come, then AoE taunt and Saber Ward to kill them.

Pop Call on the Force, and either resume taunt kiting, or try to burn it down.

You will be better served to try the less "violent" path in this case. Trust me!

I went in and helped a warrior out killing his sand demon.

It's not like the jedi knight boss that's on an abandoned mining facility and nobody's around.

My 26 (Immortal spec) Jugg beat him on first try. I didnt think he was so tough. Had my healing companion out.
WHY CAN'T I FAST TRAVEL TO MY SHIP?!

I beat him solo as Immortal using Vette.

Saber Ward/Invincible/Med Pack/Call on The Force/Saber Ward. Throw in some stuns, Endure Pain at the end. That's what I did for basically everything leveling up.

As said above, why did you fight him?

Used this method - thanks for reminding me of "kiting."

Honestly it is a bit that you are on the same level. He is an Elite or Champion from what I recall. Which means he is by no means immortal but RNG probably wont go in your favor. Having said this I prefer Vette because the extra dps is more beneficial than the healing to me. You have defensive cd's so use them and use your heroic moment. Make sure you use your stim, adrenal and have a health pack. Pop all your buffs as soon as you start your leap at him. You will have a few seconds to run away before the aggro kicks in and he comes at you. If you start to drop a bit too far run around a bit just out of his reach while Vette pounds on him for a bit. She can soak up some damage for a bit while it takes a few seconds for your buff and/or defensive cd to become available again. Also make sure you are popping your relics as well.
