Didn't have any trouble with the emperor the second time.

On the first try, i've been one shot by a spell called 'force blast" (not lightning blast) which inflicted me 40k damage. But i did notice that all of his other attacks were just painless.

I'm Jedi Sentinel "Combat", with 11k hp, about 600damage so not an "extroardinary stuff". I've fought with the ataru stance.
Just focus him and only him, don't pay attention to his mirror images.
Don't try to play "smart" or strategicaly, just hit hit hit... and kick his "one shot" spell
Fight like this, and he will fall as quick as a silver mob does....

Very disappointing fight...

killed him on my second try at lvl 48 as a tank-spec guardian; though i cheated it and used HK-51 as I've kept him geared to max level with drops and blue augments. it was still rough even with interrupt spamming and i wished i'd respec'd dps and brought some stims and healthpacks. spam interrupt and boomshakalaka.

and if you've unlocked HK buy him for your jedi guardian and you'll have a better time than T7

Did HK do anything specific in the cutscenes?

OP I recently defeated him and was worried about the fight too. But he wasn't hard at all (Got him in one try and didn't even had to use the Heroic ability)

The strategy here as many others have said, interupt his casting abilities. If you do that then he will hardly do any damage at all.

Also make sure you do the laser puzzle in the temple before you meet the Emperor, it contains lvl 50 green gear for T7 and can make a big difference in your fight.

Good luck!
I'm just a simple man trying to make my way in the universe.

Nope Hk wasn't any different in cut-scenes unfortunately. he was just blue/purple geared at my level unlike T7 who I hadn't touched since tython plus HK is more like my personality than the lovely-dovey jedi fanboy T7 is

I was more interested in what he himself was doing during the cutscenes. Like, when you confront the Emperor and he uses the duplicates, T7 blasts one of them, so I was wondering if HK does the same.

Did you get/lose any affection from your responses during the encounter?

I'm kinda tempted to say "to beat the emperor there's a bug so basically you have to click on him then press alt+f4 then he'll be defeated"
Spoiler
so i'm assuming you just have to DPS him like crazy then when a bunch of him appears have your astromech kill some of them while you get the rest

OK. I do not play a Knight. I play a Shadow, but I've run escort for four different Knights as they took out Darth Cthulhu.

1) Gear the Knight up. I mean, run some Black Hole or Ilum Dailies. Spend your planetary commendations at the Makeb dealer (if you have access to Level 55), or Classic Commendations (Level 50).

2) Gear the little astromech up. People forget about their companions in this game, but I'm a BioWare vet. Your companions make all the difference in the world on a brawl like this. There is a puzzle in the Dark Temple that gives you a passible set of gear if you haven't bothered to maintain the little guy, but it's no subsitute for Classic Commendation armor.

3) There is no shame in asking for a little backup. Shadow Tank backing up a DPS Knight (and I take Tharan with me; the man isn't intimidated by Force-based nonsense) works nicely. A Healer Scoundrel teamed with a Tank Guardian also makes for an excellent team (and what's more humiliating to Emperor High and Mighty than getting taken out by a kick to the groin?)

4) Once you and the party are armed for bear, charge in. His followers are a pain, which is why the backup from your guild or your pals is uaually a good idea.

5) when you reach him, DPS like crazy. Your little astromech is your tank, so let the droid distract him while you wail on Cthulhu with your glowbat.

6) Oh, he splits into a half dozen pieces? I remember that trick from the old Brotherhood of Shadow mod. Nice try, but Akirrikon Sin did it better. Don't hit tab and try to attack them all. Focus on one and see if you can damage him. No damage? Go to the next until you're hitting the guy who actually takes damage. You only need to cut off the source and the others will fall.

7) Voice of the Emperor is a one-shot kill, so keep your interrupts on standby; not just the regular interrupt ability, but all the push attacks, the knockbacks, the stuns. He wants to scream, cut him off. If you have a buddy, let them know to throw all of their interrupts and keep Darth Cthulhu distracted. Oh, and amusingly enough, he did not appear to be immune to Holiday.
