Forgot how to interrupt? Never heard of cleanse? Do you think the circles mean "Stand Here"?

No problem, just grind some black hole comms for a week and try again!

P.S. And while we're at it, Story Mode Toth and Zorn is harder than Dr. Lorrick and HM Soa, all of which drop the Rakata Chest. Let's have SM T/Z drop a Campaign Chestpiece instead! Oh, and a random Hazmat implant, too!

Not everyone will want to try LI with Tionese and pay all the repair bills, especially pugs. At most 7-8 wipes then disband.

I don't see a tionese pug could do LI, maybe 1/10 of them can past LR-5 and 1/20 of them will be able to do it.

Then don't do it with Tionese gear.

So that means they mostly won't need the drop from LR-5 and Sav-Rak, that's the problem I'm talking about.

The only thing that bugs me about this Instance is when you finish it, you 1 Tionese Comm which thb isn't that useful when rest of the instance drops columi.

but apart from that, i love this instance, i hope they don't change it.

Now if they made a Nightmare Mode Verison of this then i'd love this even more.

P.S the Bonus boss drops nothing but rubbish lol.

I'm not talking about lag. Lag is random.

Let's say a Sniper is shooting at the ape. Shooting at his face if you want, which means the Sniper is in front of him but safely at like 20m. Ape starts pounding his chest. Sniper runs and keeps being in front of him. Smash. Everybody on falls on the ground. Where is the Sniper ? In front of the ape and not safely at 20m. Sometimes the boss will jump to the pipe immediately after the smash, sometimes he wont (dont know that works tbh). If he doesn't, the Sniper will most likely get cleaved.
When you run to the boss if you're heals or dps, stay looking at his butt, after the smash when you fall, you'll be at his back, so no risk of getting cleaved. Not everybody does this.

If you're a skilled player, you run LR-5 without full Columi, get the boots, and use them, or rips the mods out for optimization, or give them to a companion.

If you're a mediocre player, you need full Columi and only Lorrick drops upgrade gear.

If you're a poor player, you need full Rakata and nothing is an upgrade.

If you're a bad player, you can't even do it with the 100% black hole gear you got from T1 group finder BH comms.

What's the problem exactly?

i did it on my sorcerer with half tionesse/columi, no black hole at all and no augments, but i did have guildies with me that have brains.

Then do it with Tionese gear, if you can't handle challenge, don't do it. Stop whining about nonexistant issues.
