The easiest way is to get a stealther and let him free the captives while waiting nearby (it does not break stealth).
If you don't like to cheat, you have to use CC or knock mobs down. And kill droids last, they explode before death

Well just tried this with all 29's. Sage, Sentinel, Gunslinger and myself (Vanguard).

I thought this fight was tough right off the bat but doable.
Unfortunately, it took 3 attempts (wipes) before the sage in the group tried long term cc.
Nobody else in the group had any long term cc.
Sage did not use Force Armor on anyone I could see (at least not me).
Poor sage got all huffy though because somehow by my tanking 5, (mind you this was pulling the 3 adds off the healer because he opened with an AoE)...it was my fault. I did pop all my cooldowns and made sure half the party got away...but they didn't bother coming back so I self rezzed back at the base.

Best I could do was keep 5 or 6 on me and hope that the DPS in the group could drop 1 or 2 of the weaker mobs. But it didn't happen.

I'm definitely coming back with a different group and set up and try some of the alternative tactics though.

Slingers and Sentinels can CC mechanicals. If there were droids(as this thread seems to indicate) your Slinger and Sentinel were being idiots for not CCing them.

Umm... me and my brother 2 manned this on our first toons (vanguard and commando, with 2 comp healers). And it IS difficult not but not undoable. Lots of wipes and field rez moving past really hard groups, when you get to the captives just run in and free them all while the tanks tries to keep agro. And solo'd it on my first alt (shadow). Maybe not the conventional "kill everything in sight" approach but it's still done. So while this IS a very difficult Heroic it's not so bad if you use your brain a little. : )

As long as everyone knows what they are doing this mission isn't that hard, finished it yesterday when I was levelling with a friend and we had no problem at all on it, me being on my Jugg DPS and her on her Sorc DPS, one healer comp and one DPS comp. Never wiped even thought we had some troubles since we lacked two CC (if we would have been four players and not two) so I just think this is all about skill and class/ability knowledge, I mean we were lvl 26 and 27 in blue gear....

Further, this is easily completed solo, no matter gear or class. You used to be able to free the prisoners in combat. I believe they fixed that, but it's still rather easy. You can run around and not aggro anything to get into the base. Once there, run up and click on a prisoner before you get aggro, and then run away. Rinse, repeat. Takes a minute or two and you're done.
