Yeah, that lightning strike was annoying, because you'd die from it even though you were like 10 feet out and it would be ******** because you'd try to explain to the rest of your group that you're not a noob who can't move out of the fire,, and that it was just a bit buggy ;p

But I wouldn't say it was overtuned, ye the lightning strike was bugged, but the saberthrow was supposed to hit pretty hard (shouldn't have been able to take a hit from it without being full hp imo) because it would just be too easy for healers otherwise.

As long as people stands still and makes sure to interrupt his headshot ability, the fight is actually not that bad.
I thought I was undergeared in a run last nite till I read this. This is exactly what our group was doing and we ended up wiping as I couldn't keep up with healing demand. Might have been a bit of both as the tank was going down really quickly. Funnily enough, did the same HM FP a few days earlier and that group knew the strategy of bringing the boss up top and using ints on the headshot - that was a walk in the park and used the same toon/gear as last nite.

Only semi-related, but I was doing this on my Sent a few days ago when it popped in group finder. I pulled aggro off the tank right before he started channeling his missile barrage, and when I hit Force Camo it interrupted the ability XD

Should've tried this back in early January when the fight REQUIRED two interrupters for the headshot or it almost couldn't be done. All you need to do is put down your pisspool and light heal the group and you're good through the volley.

Another trick for those new to the fight is to have everyone run around the boss up to the bridge (where you saw the ship captain die in the beginning) and have the tank run to the big blocking console behind the boss' starting point, aggro the boss, hide behind the console, let the boss come to you and then begin dps. The adds (which were a bi-tch way back when) will sit there doing nothing until Ironfist is dead and then you may kill them at your leisure.
