After over two hours of asking on the fleet for help with Dark Designs and not finding any I decided to try and solo it. I got all the way to Maki’voro have gotten him down to half health three different times but each time when he does his move that blows players back either I or my companion are knocked off the ledge of the Data Skiff making it impossible to beat him and have to restart the fight.

Do you guys have any plans to lower this from a heroic +4 to a normal mission? If not could you add it and any other +4 Heroics to the Group Finder so players don't have to spend a lot of time looking for someone else to group up with for the mission?

Thank You.

Makil'voro did not pose a problem for me as long as I countered his Nanoshield Probe quickly. But the next step (Shroud last standing) requires four players to pass a door (four switches to activate quickly). You can't solo this one and it's by design - they don't intend to change this.

I'm not one for looking at forums before trying to play different levels. I was very frustrated to find out after all the work of getting to Maki'voro that I can't beat him solo, and I can't finish this mission unless I'm in a group of 4. There should be a warning before accepting this mission that you need to have a group to finish it. If I knew that, I wouldn't have wasted my time playing it.

He’s easily soloable, the next quest however actually requires 4 people for the puzzles.

position yourself with your back to the console and make sure your companion is close to you, you won't be knocked off the ship, just against the console. kill the little probes that heal him when they spawn.
