Ha I ran into another bug last night. My group did HM Last Emp..at 100k I pulled him to the edge with my back against a pillar to avoid being tossed off myself as I was the tank. For SOME reason, Malgus went to another player for a sec, thus moving JUST enough for me to taunt and get thrown over the edge. 3 Seconds after I died, the fight was overand The kill was completed, BUT once you die that way, you automatically get booted outside the instance. I was unable to reenter the instance and join in the loot. I was on TS at the time with the group, and they waited for me but , the damn place just wouldnt let me reenter.

I tanked the whole thing, every boss, up till the final seconds of the last one, died, and guess what he dropped.. The jugger tanking chest token. LOL I was so pissy. After running multiple hard modes(daily for 2-3 days) and never seeing ONE SINGLE PIECE OF TANKING GEAR, it finally dropped, and I wasnt allowed back in. GFG

Yep. There are some group setups that cannot kill him because they're lacking the knock backs.

Vanguard/Powertech, Operatives/Scoundrels, Marauder/Sentinel, Gunslinger/Sniper.

Dumb Boss Design is dumb.
"I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain."...

The best strategy is to hope he bugs out and doesn't enter the "I R immortal and spam lighting at u" phase at all, which seems to happen sometimes. Then you can just kill him normally. And I'm not even kidding here :/

Bump.

The boss needs a redesign if 4 out 8 ACs do not posses a knockback.

Don't go into the encounter without knowing you have atleast 1 knockback? Fairly easy.
There ain't no nothing we can't love each other through.

It is intended. It's a reference to how Darth Vader killed the real emperor.

It is pretty dumb design though. A reference is not worth bad gameplay and balance.

Did this without having a knockback. I, as a powertech tank, just jumped off the edge and grappled him off..........was not able to loot, but got the "W".

Shouldn't have to have a specific group makeup to get this fight done.
