If your healer companion gets hit with this, they won't move - and it's likely to be the end for them (and for you, shortly afterwards!).
Didn't we just leave this party?

I've been wandering back to Quesh every now and again since my Jedi Guardian was Lv 37, I'm Lv42 now and try as I might I still can't quite put the fekker down (although I came pretty close with Doc in tow very recently).

Jesh is a bit like an old friend now and I'll be almost sorry to defeat him when I finally get the Sith Emperor and his wife (Mrs Nuclear Missile Hands) as companions.

I'll admit, this mission got me more times than I can count. In the end I got lucky, I stopped trying to dps and spammed packs and triages on Corso. Corso dropped dead when the boss was about 17% but I managed to finish him off that time round.

[PlayerY]: nien nunb
[PlayerX]: Ah that wa sit

Just finish him, i'm gardian dps lvl 37 : The secret is to manage your kick to block his AoE, after that and a companion heal, you can beat him easily.

Yes, if you interrupt/stun his AOE he shouldn't be that difficult at all

as far as i know as a smuggler/healer the only interupt i have are flash and dirty kick what ever this mob is useing dosent have a cool down and as someone pointed out he spans this AOE attack. interups only by time in this case too little too late; i alway die before any of my interup cool downs are up. i can't get Corso out of the blast zone fast enogh to avoid hits. all it takes is 2 hits and corso's out (fallowed by me).

Better take a second look at your abilities, smuggler "official" interrupt is called "distraction". Thats a third you can use (12s cooldown). Its melee range though.

EDIT:
I have just taken on this mob on my lvl 36 scoundrel healer (same level as captain Jesh himself), did it on first go although he downed Akaavi Spar. I did notice that he seemed to be doing more damage than 'normal' elites and that his flamethrower seemed uninterruptible. I did it on first try so I didnt have time to check whether I just fessed it up somehow or whether the flamethrower really is uninterruptible.

note: I have relatively good gear for my level with custom gear and mostly blue mods (I have three 50s incl. cybertech and artificer so I can keep my alts wellgeared and looking good). Spar only had her starting gear though. My character also has all the class buffs.

My first advice if you have trouble with this would be to check if you gear is too lowlevel or bad, or if your build is trying to be too "hybrid". Soloing this mob is definitely doable.

if you are level 42 sentinal and you use doc and you hold one of the robots, you can get him down to about 800 hp if u stay on top of cancelling his flame attack thats the best i have been able to do with out a group which i never am able to find. maybe if u are a character that can use heavy armor its easier .
but your armor wont protect against the fire bomb. the spam he slings is hard because it requires u to be able to direct your companion to assult the other droid which is no good if you are playing with Doc no other powers really work and using your epic force seems to accelerate the amount of damage he is able to do while lowering docs heal your best chance is to use kira because she will draw damage and that will get u with in just a second of being able to beat him .
i have the same issues at 42 with the Sith boss you find back at the camp with two other siths i almost beat him all the time though i generally get lucky enough to have a weird latency burp every time i am close to managing an impossible task that allows the npc to win.
i am kind of not the fan of forced socializing outside of the flash points. i really think that most normal play should be able to be done outside of group quests .
some of us play video games when we dont feel like going out and finding people to do things with lol
if i wanted to be forced to find friends and work together i would take a second job for a hobby lol but overall its ridiculous that 6 level higher is not enough to beat some parts of the game on your own like i said i think all the people who have had success are using characters that can use heavy armor
