I remember spending thousands of credits on repairs when it first came out, I was barely geared for it and the mechanics seemed intense. It took awhile to get the hang of it, but once you and your group get it down, it can be a lot of fun.

Tank = Marauder
Healer = Merc
DPS = Sorc

Yea, there is no problem with this (I play a Sentinel). We pump out enough dps that we can keep threat up. Also, if you have spent the two points in Recompense / Cloak of Annihilation then you can use Rebuke / Cloak of Pain more often. Either way, with or without the special spec'ing, they have enough armor and self heals to make it similar to healing a Shadow / Assassin. The only fight that it might be a problem in would be Project Sav-rak I would think. Personally I've never tried tanking LI HM on my Sentinel, but I have tanked other HM's (Taral V mostly).

As for choice of healer, I'd personally feel more comfortable with a Scoundrel / Operative healer (no real rational behind this though).

P.S. : Forgot to note, trash pulls might be harder with no taunts.

Personally don't have either Cloak of Annihilation or Defensive Roll on my Annihilation Mara but both would make the task easier. The hardest fight is actually LR-5 Sentinel Droid for me as Sav-rak tends to be a cake walk with Lorrick being interesting during his first phase but easy as hell once you get him to transform after 40%.

If you work the 3 defensive CD's Mara's have well enough then you can make things much easier on the healer though its still harder than if it was a tank class. As for a healer well Sorc/Operative would be the preferred choice for either the HOT's or AOE heals but wanted to go with a Merc as many think it's the weakest healer.

I don't really rate trash high enough in LI to ever CC anything other than 1 medic on the last pack before Lorrick. The rest of the time its just charge then some AOE followed by as much single dps as I can to take the targets down.

prettty impressive, though u out geared it. Me and my guildies did it last night with our fresh 50's in all recruit gear...
classes :
sage seer- heals
sage hybrid- dps
sage tele- dps
shadow - tank

we wiped once on sav-rak due to the tank facing him toward us and we all got the bleed and took more dmg then the heal's could handle. after that mistake it was cake. i think this fp is not as hard as ppl think just gotta be focused and know what ur doing. but now im gonna try 3 manning it with our mains

My point is you out gear the content so any rewards are worthless to you.
(Like doing Esseles level 10 at level 25 and complain about how easy it is to do.)

Yea that would make it easy to 3 man it.
Point! Its like 2-manning BT HM in full rakata laughing lol

Nevertheless good job guys, I hope this will convince all those pu$$ies out there this instance is a joke even on hm, all u need is proper strat and good gear. :-D

3 manning LI hm is fun, but to stresfull to do it regulary, preffer traditional way, but feeling of being pro after doing it is priceless.
specially when your alts 3 man with no wipes (2 dps and healer) and second guild team 4 mains are wiping like little girls

there was a lot of 'in your face' that night HA
