I went from hating this fight to realizing that Bioware wants us to use all of our abilities. I this is great since it makes each encounter have a different expectation. I hope they can do more with this.

Had no issues at beating him at level 24. OP needs to start using all of his abilities and learn to interrupt.

One problem may be the fact that you have a preset damage rotation rather than make the best rotation for the situation. The damage rotation on one boss is not always the same as a damage rotation on the others. I don't like the idea of damage rotations since I think it is far better to choose abilities that make sense in the moment. I play a Sentinel not a Guardian but with a Sentinel you don't know when a riposte proc is coming and it is a good ability to use when you can but it costs 3 focus. If you have a damage rotation preset you can't use riposte and continue with that rotation. You need to think on the fly about what you're going to do with that focus if a riposte proc comes. You need to have a plan for each and every focus. Not some damage rotation you use all the time.

Use force leap to interrupt his blast one, and kick to interrupt his lightning.. it works. just beat him at 22, was a very close call but got it.

I had a really tough time, but then I get a new lightsaber (was using the commendation one from coruscant)

I took Valis on at 26, and even then he was rather hard to kill. Even with interrupts. I'm a dps specced Guardian and used the rotation mentioned here =) But still I found myself dying at least twice.

But when he was dead, I think I had a heart-rate of over 600..

best thing to do is not suck... and honestly if you do not skip quests and do the bonuses you will be slightly over level and have plenty of gear.

nearly all of these people are doing their class quests UNDER leveled. If you did everything on Taris and Nar Shaddar you should be closer to 27-28 not 24, that means you skipped stuff.

Sorry but not being able to "****** charge" everything does not mean its over tuned it means it has a "challenge" to it. Sorry but if you never die then the game is not hard enough. This is not wow, if you want to kill everything while drunk and stupid then go back to WoW.

dps rota...WHAT?

Im a sentinel, beat him while I was one level below him and concentrated only on using 2 defense buffs, choke like thingy and the 90% enemy damage lower skill on the right time from the begining keeping him unable to deal serious damage for as long as I could

all based on their lenght, enemy current target and reload times

beat him as a Sentinel without too much trouble, used a medpac just to be safe, interupt is your friend.
