Just finished up making these vids ( first time so be kind lol), and just wanted to show that melee is perfectly viable for EC even though most say ranged is a must. Yes I know ranged makes things easier and we did make a few mistakes which could be fixed. 1-shot everything except Toth and Zorn, which took 3 tries.

Toth & Zorn
Tank healer lagged a bit tank died.
At end needed to keep 1 dps on Zorn and 3 on Toth for final push to make sure they died closer together.

Firebrand & Stormcaller
Not sure why one of the dps died and the other died from a dur moment and ran in front of stormcaller towards the end.

Colonel Vorgath
Pretty standard fight, I just started recording late.

Warlord Kephess
Well not much to say here either other than me not accepting the revive there at the end. Was busy staring at the health bar and praying lol.

That's it and hope everyone enjoyed them.

PS- Has this been done by others? Haven't seen anything anywhere but I'm sure someone has.

We ran through us with 4 sentinels in about an hour and 1/2. Granted that was onc we knew the mechanics and were geared pretty decently.

Damage on three if the sentinels was 1300+ while the other one forgot to log his.

But yes it's possible on story mode. Not sure about hard mode yet and it is less forgiving of mistakes.

Considering the OP says his videos are of Hard Mode I'll assume it is in fact possible =P
In update 2.9 the game will simply uninstall itself for you.

You're right. Didn't have time to look at the videos at the time of first post.

Can I ask what you mean by geared decently, Our guild is still working on the two tanks, cant seem to get them down even though were all in full rakata.

HMEC is very unforgiving for DPS. We tend to want our DPS to be at least Full rakata w/ a few BH and all augmented. As for you tanks and healers if they can do NM EV/KP then they should be fine, they just require a bit more skill than gear for it.

I can see the first two bosses for sure (haven't watched the videos yet).

On the minefield how do you handle the exploding robots?

Kephess seems pretty doable except for burning down the trandoshan stage. Would love to know how you're handling that stage (cyclone slash ftw??)

Did you fully augment rakata? If not, you are missing a extra 200+ [Strength, Willpower, Cunning, Aim] and 100+ Endurance.

Also if you farm SM EC, NM KP, HM LI and HM Kaon and also do EoT you should be able to acquire some pieces of Black Hole gear and put it on the Rakata gear, that should buff up your gear more.

Most def cyclone slash.. Lol.

I agree, trandoshan stage is tough for us with a slinger, commando with their good aoe's.

We havent augmented them yet (that I know of) but we were saying it should be do-able because it came out before 1.3.
