How in the world are you suppose to beat the Avatar of Sel-Makor? He just destroys me in under 10 seconds, this isnt even labeled as a group quest.

Every other end planet mission has been soloable, i dont see how this one is, unless your 50 or something. he nukes for 4-6k, massive aoe force chokes, big aoe.

Anyone have tips on beating him or something? Its annoying leaving something un-finished.

I kept dying at 1% on this fight over and over.

The fight is 100% about using your cooldowns in the right order and having the best companion out for your playstyle.

I believe I tried this mission at level 42 and failed at 1% many, many times and had to come back when I hit 43. I'm a Sith Juggernaut Immortal so I had lots of defensive cooldowns & interrupts.

This was by far the hardest fight until the final encounter with Lord Draagh which I defeated through a lot of kiting and the use of an undergeared Malavai Quinn at level 47. (A tactic I also used for one of the phases of the Darth Baras fight.)

But on to some useful information:

Your companion will more than likely die on this encounter if you do not toggle passive on to move the companion out of the AoE effects.

You need to prioritize your interrupts - Interrupt the abilities that are really affecting you the most, maybe let some of the other ones go. And remember that stuns, cc, interrupts, pushbacks & pulls will all act as interrupts. I can't remember if this mob is immune to CC or not, but as a Sith Juggernaut at max level, the Intimidating Roar (AoE fear) we get is quite amazing as an interrupt (especially as an AoE interrupt). I'm sure other classes get similar abilities they can use as pseudo-interrupts.

I did this fight with a melee companion - probably the worst choice, but it was the only one I had geared. You may find that a healer companion with smart use of toggling passive on & off may be the best bet for this fight.

They need to tweak this encounter. Its not really a 2 man because when I finally was able to run it with a second person the encounter was insanely easy. I can say however as hard as it is for you tanks at least you can do the LOS tricks..try doing it as a healing spec operative, if you hold the hate your a corpse, if your companion holds the hate you cant use LOS. For those operatives out there looking for help, use your interrupts on embrace, not affliction.

I am Marauder near 49 lvl and using Malavar. I cant beat him, wasted like 60k on repairs already. This guy Force Chokes you, while creating AOE righ under you, throws some dark energy which takes like half of your health, and he uses Force Lightning like Psionic Storm from Starcraft 1. There is no way to interrupt even half of it thanks to cooldown. And healing can't overweight the damage all the time to take away his 28k, since you can't stay on one place.

I know how this guy works now. He using a deadly consequence od actions:
1. Force Choke you and your companion. (Thus no healing)
2. At the same time open AOE right under you.
3. After Force Choke - summon Lightning and blast you with dark energy.

When this cycle happens 1 time, you save yourself by your unstun ability and a medpack + you had almost full hp before.
When 2 times come - everything is on cooldown, and your health is not that great. If you are
lucky, the blast (stage 3) will kill you. If you are not, Force Choke will.
I tried not to let him use the Choke, but it seems he will use it anyway.

I fought him at level 47. You just interrupt his AoE and you will survive.

During my rise to Darth (lvl 50) there has been two final bosses I couldnt defeat solo.
Avatar of Sel-Makor is one, the Colicoid broodmaster was the other. Colicoid I propably might have pulled off solo if I had a new chance (I just had a chance to call help so I took it without trying to grind it out), but avatar was ridiculously overpowered.

I tried him at equal level, Xalek died in roughly 2.2 seconds, went from full to zero faster than dark infusion activates pretty much. Interrupt him? Sure, but he has more crazy stuff than I have cooldowns for. I think he did CC at roughly 10 second intervals. Not enough time to heal, only one unbreakable will to get out of CC and you die if you dont, etc. I think this mission needs to be made a heroic 2+ or the boss toned down. I had to call a +2 level friend to tank which made it easy, but solo it was damn near impossible for my sorc.

Its propably ok-ish if you just tone down his damage output slightly.

Tried it as Sniper at 47, unbeatable. Went to Corellia, leveled up a bit. Came back at 49, still unbeatable. Found a friend.
This was the only soloable enemy that I couldn't beat solo.
