This fight should be super easy. In the phases where you can't hurt him, you take practically no damage. Just keep healing yourself and walking around clicking every single console. Before you actually click anything, stand 15' away and wait for the red AoE to target you. Then run out of the AoE to click the console. Keep healing, running around, and clicking. You are missing the click parts during the "you don't take much damage" phase.

I basically did what the previous posters wrote: click both consoles downstairs, run around like a headless chicken, activate two upstairs consoles, run around like a headless chicken, kill repair droids, run around like a headless chicken. Kick Isotope-5 droid every now and then to keep it from health resetting, rund around like a headless chicken. Use healing companion.

Took me 4 tries but I eventually beat the bastard.

Omg I tried this over and over again doing most of what you have already posted here and I still do not get the droid to die. I think this quest is bugged or you need at least a partner to help click on consoles to beat him.

I did this just fine with my sorc healer and Xalek as my companion. Didn't have any resets. I suppose that might happen if no one hits the droid for a while, though it reeks of poor design.

I can assure you that you do not need a partner.

1) There's no time limit
2) The mobs do trivial damage as long as you can heal at all

1) Damage the boss.. Heal.
2) Click consoles. Take your time. Heal.
3) Go to step 1.

Fought for a good 20-30 minutes my first attempt, noticed the immune stage, tried the lasers upstairs to no avail, so i came and checked this thread out. First try doing it in the order explained, done! Thank you all that gave explanations, was very helpful to say the least.

Good tips by the previous posters. It took me almost a dozen tries to finally beat the mission.

I loathed this mission. It felt overly difficult, even with healer companion. The sudden difficulty spike is not challenging in a fun way. I was frustrated and it made me, as a player, stop caring about continuing the story. The mission feels better suited for a Flashpoint rather then a story mission. I'd rather Daily and Flashpoint grind my characters to level 55 then play the mission ever again.

Been at this quest for a long, long time now.
Level 55 dps assassin, most attempts with either Talos or Treek as healer-comps, but have tried other companions as well.
First bundle of attempts I missed out on hitting the big guy every now and then, just ran around like mad dodging red circles/killing smaller mobs - and blammo, at some point, three or four red circles all locking into an area around me that even force speed didn't get me out of.
After that, a bundsle of times where inbetween I did hit the big guy, even found his blindspot, so to say, but.... after a while, he just resets health to full again and whenever that reset hits, I'd get pummeled like a uhm.... freelance... eh... professional lady at a 1970's... uh... professional interest management person convention.
Watched a few tips on Youtube and other sources, tried to do whatever I saw in those vids for the next bundle of attempts, but.... well, I think the damned droid told me to "wear something pretty next time", which brings us to me posting this right here.
Yeah, I've kinda had it with that damned droid... if I had the funds to pay the real-world mob to put a hit on that b!!ch in-game and permanently take him out of commission, I would.
It also doesn't help that the few times (well, 4 times in all) where I asked if someone would team up for it, the answers ranged from "lol noob" to "gimme 5 million credits and I might hink about it".
I wanted to complete this piece of plot, even after a bunch of fails, but right now, I think I'm not going back to that damned mission.
