Depth's of Manaan bug, Czerka Meltdown, and Maelstrom too difficult...

Depth's of Manaan is not counting as completed for the Dark vs Light after completion, and Maelstrom Prison is insanely difficult. Boss #2 is ridiculously hard. Looked up a strategy, one my team was using and he was literally 1 shotting everyone anyway. Played peekaboo with him for several minutes we didn't have the dmg to take him down. Then theres the Czerka Meltdown fp. Cannot beat any bosses, attempted 10 different times on low level and high level DvL toons. I want to get Eternal level and it looks like I may not be able to clear Champion due to these issues.

PS Side note, there is absolutely no pvp going on on Jung Ma. So i'm not sure I can get Champion even IF I manage to get past everything else.

Do solo mode for Maelstrom, tactical version is not worth the hassle. Never done it on hard mode though. I been hearing how Depths has been bugging on people too, I rumor I heard is the last boss can't die in the fire, like the last hits need to be done by an actual player, but I have no idea if that's legit or not.

Czerka meltdown isn't that bad. The duneclaw boss is pretty straight forward, when he does his 1 mechanic, whoever has agro needs to move him to the green lights. That's literally all there is to it. The other boss just break the egg next to him to hit him with green goo then just keep doing that when it wears off. The last boss is easy, just kill pillars and adds, dodge circles, then burn him down at the end.

Dulfy.net has a ton of guides for all these encounters.

Maelstrom second boss is over-tuned - though doable with lots or running around clicking kolotos and playing keep away even when he isn't in his laser eye phase.

Last boss is just broke on tactical - more trash spawns right at start than ever spawned on HM, boss will still snipe (one shot) when people reach him in melee, as well as snipe (one shot) through walls, boxes, pillars, etc.

Given its already a long flashpoint, the tuning and bugs make dropping Maelstrom at start, along with eating the deserter debuff, the most efficient use of time.

Czerka is also a bit of a mess these days - the damage in the desert boss is very high and the boss has a lot of HP.

If you get mostly high levels that play well, especially someone with a taunt to park boss on barrels, it isn't too bad - but get a bunch of lowbies doing piddling damage and struggling to stay alive and its not worth sticking around.

Oh and the boss likes to stun right before he does his smash, so if the player with aggro isn't already on the barrel, or doesn't have a cc break + speed ready to go, it is easy to end up with the boss smashing just short of the barrel and having to eat the sandstorm damage until he cycles through again.

Anyways - if I were in charge of instances at Bioware, I'd be embarrassed as hell with the current state.

Now I remember why I dropped my sub shortly after KotFE launched, and why I won't be subbing beyond the month to get all the last KotFE chapters.

No new group content - and the group content we do have is in a worse state than when it was fresh.

Both have a solo mode - you should be able to just go out to the ship (forget name - not Gav but the other one) and there should be a mission NPC / droid near the entrances, though there is a mission giver with a breadcrumb on fleet.

Depths of Manaan counts if you don't kill the last boss in the fire.

One Manaan on DvL toon, 3 times , killed last boss in fire , out of fire, no fire at all, still no credit, fired off a bug report to Bioware, waiting for the fix. Just getting tired of the repeat on the same non-counting mission

Made several tries at Manaan. The last time i completely removed the jesus droid and put the companion on passive at last 5% of all the bosses and it counted. My guess is it's not just the fire - on every boss the killing blow should be yours.
