Dunno if someone has already done this (even back in lv50 times o_O), but I thought I'd chime in to tell you about my bout with da big cat!

2/12/32 Sage (lv 55 naturally) with an average gear of little over 66. The first 75% of his health were really easy, he did virtually no damage to me and it was just boring to get that far. At about 25% he enraged and that's where things got interesting. I had to use Force Barrier to make sure I survived the next snowstorm, and CC-breaked away from the next. Had to heal a bit at times, but in the end I got really lucky and resisted most of his damage. Had the added help from a Rakata medpac, a Rakata Power Adrenal and the latest lv52 Willpower stim. I got him down on my second try, after realising I wouldn't pass the enrage without using my CD's more wisely.

Anyone else tried this as of late?

PS. to that Sorc: get a life. :P

You have a companion.. they are useless in WorldBoss fights apart from the allowing you to use HeroicMoment/Unity abilities..
Missandei Shadow ...yet shadows can kill. And oft-times a very small man can cast a very large shadow.

Didn't use a companion. The thought of being able to Heroic Moment it didn't even occur to me.

Only chiming in because of companion comment. If you properly equip them, like you would a character. The companion that most offsets your class can be helpful. Basically you DPS, they heal tank. The comp can buy you time. They are still cannon fodder, but you may have enough time for a long cool down to pick back up, ad that bit of damage that turns the tide while distracting the boss long enough for you to get in more strikes. Sometimes with limited adds the healers can sit back there and continue to heal pretty much left alone (yes give me every example to contrary now).

My mains are pure DPS (Sentinel/Merc) so soling a world boss or even at level heroics or fps will need to wait until I can do what our special ops do, laser mark them and get an air strike.

I do want to see this thread go further

Companions are useless in WB fights. At the start Boss do some intimidating move that make your companion be mezzed till the end of the fight.

Actually a Companion was needed for solo'ing the Coruscant World Boss because they counted as a party member for obtaining a debuff, otherwise he'll just do a ton of damage to you. Not sure if the ability still hits you at 55.

However for Snowblind, if you stand behind your Companion you can force he/she/it/them to take the freezing debuff for you and you won't be frozen in Ice.

I haven't tried, but I imagine you could also use Sacrifice on them to heal yourself for 40% of your total HP if you're an Imp.

You just need a character with Dark V. Faction doesn't matter. (Also, you can.)
I have one of every class and play them all. I give up on this class signature thing.
