From what i've seen so far, bosses enrage at about 50% hp, at which point they become untankable, can anyone actually compete them?

Get better DPS. Not much else to say. Our static group only ran into an enrage on the last boss of Esseles so far at around 2% once, and we've been clearing all of them on an almost daily basis.

Yep, better dps. We had last boss of BT at 10% before she enraged, but our tank popped all his CDs and we downed her. Some of the fights are somewhat prohibitive on DPS requirements, but are mostly doable. If you're jumping into hard modes right at 50 while wearing level 40 greens, you're going to have a problem. Run BoI/FE a couple of times to gear up, get some craftables, and go back later.

All bosses I've seen have a hard enrage after X amount of time. If your group isn't close to downing the hard mode bosses, do as the other posters suggest and get better gear from the level 50 regular dungeons. You could also run a lot of battlegrounds to get mercenary commedations and warzone commedations to buy champion bags. These bags give you a small chance at epic loot or award you with champion commedations you can purchase equipment with.

Learn a better rotation? Or scold your other dps for looking at pr0n instead of attacking. In either case, it's a severe lack of DPS if you're hitting enrage at 50%.

What about bosses like the padawan boss in black talon? It sucks everyone in and forces you to run out of it, if you waste time doing that, how do you dps it down fast enough?

Is your party also decked out in PvP gear? That would be a huge problem. I would imagine you have stats that are useless help against hardmode bosses.
