Level 55 HM Bonus Bosses are too anti-melee

The fact that you CAN does not mean that you're supposed to. IE: I know a spot where you can solo Gil without taking ANY damage at all. Does it means that's how you're supposed to do it? nope. A guildy takes upon himself to solo everything he can. The other day he was soloing Lucky (and succeeding). He soloed at least one of the Ilum WBs during the gree event, and so on and so on.

He is melee btw so if you want to argue about workarounds to boss mechanics you might as well introduce every single possible glitch, losing and kiting technique available in the game.

Fact stands: 3 of 4 bosses are designed to hit the whole group, with minor exceptions.
I'm also fairly sure that you are still in melee range of Gil if you position yourself carefully.

I believe it is 25. Our Commando never gets hit, either.

Commandos can use hold the line to ignore it (though it normally works only once every two stuns). However, if the tank is able to, somehow, ignore the knockdown (IE: a vanguard tank using hold the line), then nobody in the group will get hit.

Slingers in the same way can use, if timed correctly, hightail it and use the 3 seconds of entrench to ignore the stun as well.

It may be 25 m, honestly haven't bothered trying as it's pretty insignificant damage, but somebody said they tried at 29.5 and were hit anyway.

The Cademimu bonus bosses pull can be negated for ranged dps and healers if they stand behind one of the boxes near the elevator.

The reason, why there are antimelee mechanics is, because you can not do anti range mechanics
There is just one reason for that: If you do something against melees, they can not make themselves rDDs for that time, but if you do mechanics against rDD (like on different WBs, TFB phase 1) they simple go to the boss and become mDD.

to enrage them you need to be really bad on dps..undergeared or wrong rotations, or tank not taunting stressing the heals..
