Maybe its either then? Cause we definitely pushed the phases every time 2 days ago in NiM by dumping a bit of extra DPS on firebrand.

And when SC had 10-15% as FB died, we didn't get a fifth shield phase.

There is an alternative method that is quite simple, every time you exit the shield/begin the fight, have a dps perform a single rotation on SC, it helps you escape that second DD, everytime I've used that strat we haven't gotten that second DD.

Even doing this just the first time out helps. The 1st 20% is going to be the hardest to get though. This is because by the time defensive systems kicks in and you locate where the shields are you should of burned off another few %. Done this for NM and it does help eliminate that issue.

Thanks for the reply.

We tried the 3 dps on storm last night and the 20% markers on storm still initiated the "defensive systems" phase.

What DPS are you running with? If you get your two strongest DPS on SC they might be able to push the defensive systems. Our op make up for NiM is to usually have our two melee DPS (usually dual PT's or a MT/Marauder combo), and during the first 20% the operative healer even drops an orbital strike. Pushing that first 20% is the hardest due to a combo of tank threat starting at zero, timer counting down whilst still getting into position, and having to actually get the 20% before the second DD starts casting. If you do beat that first one, subsequent defensive systems triggers are easier as you get to start at a lower value due to DPS'ing during the cast (we usually push 3% during the cast, so we only need 17% before defensive systems is cast).

I hope that made sense, I kept getting interrupted as I was typing it.
Thanks for the reply.
really great stuff, i will pass it on to the guys.
