I had done this encounter twice pre-1.2 with a healer sorc and then a deception assassin. The first time took me at least eight tries. The second was easier because I knew what to expect. That took maybe 3 or 4 tries, all at 47 or 48, because I do a lot of planet and side quests.

I did it again last night with a 48 vengeance jugg. I had Jaesa decked out with 5 orange armor pieces all with resolve 21 armor and 20a mods, and my jugg had mostly the same level might armor. Jaesa was a machine for DPS. I beat on the avatar with my usual offensive cooldowns, used defensive cooldowns when I taunted aggro to keep Jaesa alive, then repeated with saber ward after using heroic moment. Don't miss vicious throw when he gets low on HP.

It was close, but I did this on one try. Max your gear with at least blue quality, use your interrupts carefully, and make sure you swap aggro back and forth with your companion. Pick your taunt points and use defensive CDs when you do.

I don't know if you've ever tried this fight on an Imp toon but it's one of the hardest fights outside of a FP/Op. For some reason he is MUCH harder to fight on Imp side and is a joke on Rep. I've soloed him on both sides and almost always end up helping other Imps when I'm leveling toons there. I enjoy the challenge on Imp side but not sure why BW made this fight so drastically different difficulty wise for Imps vs Reps.

I'm having a hell of a time with this guy.

I consider strategies. Kiting, DPSing him down, keeping him away from Quin, or using a DPS companion. I make sure my gear is up to par. I'm overlevelled.

I run in. He Force chokes, DOTs me and charges his AoE at the same time. As ssoon as I touch him I've got a 3k per sec dot on me, and as soon as I interrupt, he just recasts immediately. My health is gone in the first 3 seconds of the fight.

I'm a Sith Juggernaut. I'm really not sure what I'm doing so horribly wrong, I didn't have this much trouble a year ago on my Inquisitor.

For him to get all that done immediately on engage makes it sound like you're bugged. Surviving this encounter with any class is based on not getting hit with both the dot and his main attack. You need to be able to use your interrupts to break his attack chain, and you aren't getting the chance. You may want to reset the encounter and see if that fixes you getting blistered on engage like that.

What server are you on?

Easy fight. L2Interrupt. Did with Quinn - never dropped under 50% health.

I remember it being hard as an assassin, not quite as hard as a marauder, and a joke as a Jedi Guardian. Interrupts were the key, and I think I waited till I hit 50 on the Imp side.

Interrupts and keeping your healer alive, use cooldowns. Avatar is among hardest fights during levelling.

Turns out I was bugged. As soon as I brought someone in to help me, he returned to his 'normal' behaviors and he was down in seconds.

I've had this happen a few times, where enemies sometimes don't have cooldowns on their abilities. It's frustrating to have a non-elite healer-type mob suddenly become immortal because he can heal himself faster than you and your companion (3 levels higher than him) can damage him.

Only happens while I'm solo.

If this is the hardest fight while leveling, I'll believe it . I just did this fight with a boosted lv. 55 Agent Operative on the test servers and the avatar still killed me the first time, lol . You should have seen my face, my mouth was open in shock . Next time I just attacked him to build aggro them ran around like a frightened 6 year old while Ensign Temple attacked him. After a few seconds, I got the message to speak to him again, and was he was kneeling down with his 1 hp . That was the second time my mouth opened in shock as the fight went so fast . I rewarded Temple with an orange blaster after that for saving my behind .
