Kephess, HM Explosive conflict, one shotting tanks without the debuff

Since 1.4, I've noticed this behavior during the last fight in Explosive conflict.
During the Breath of the masters the OT taunts Kephess and after that gets one shotted for exactly his max HP by the savage arcing slash (that's 27+k hit and no, the boss is not enraged), in the meantime the debuff is on the MT and he is dropping circles (i.e. the tank that is tanking before the Breath of the masters is channeled). This make the last fight a bit chancy, depending on what percentage of the boss this happens. Never happened to us before 1.4. May be this is a lag issue (gotten worse since 1.4), the server somehow thinks that the OT has the debuff ?

Either an issue on the timing of the taunt, or a lag issue with the same final result.

Right before the "breath" Kephess knowck the tank he`s currently facing back. This knock back puts a debuff on the tank, which will kill that tank if he takes ANY amount of damage. The whole idea is to get that debuff, get "breath" and swith the tanks, so that the tanks with 2 debuffs ("insta-kill" one and "breath") runs around spawning circles, while other one is handling Kephess. If Kephess knocks back 2 people, both of them will get a debuff. So work on your taunt/positioning and you won`t have any problems.

P.S. Tank should taunt Kephess during the cast of the "breath".

Didn't you read that the OT is taunting during the breath of the masters?
And during that time the tank that taunts is behind the boss - so both of them are definitely not hit by the same savage arcing slash. The OT is killed without any debuff visible on the status bar.
And if this is an issue with the timing of the taunt then the MT dies, not the OT.
