Most groups take waaay too many tries to move on to the second turret fight because people are un-willing or unable to prioritize targets and the double spawns that happen occasionally are no problem to someone who knows what they are doing but the people who don't understand just get squashed every time. The rest of the flashpoint is fine but those turret fights need a nerf to the damage taken or maybe just set everyone at a certain amount of health like most vehicle fights. I'm not sure if it was intended to be done with 3 turrets and healer but it seems like an oversight on bioware's part...
May the . be with you

3 people on turrets and 1 healer is exactly how we did both those turret fights.

Turned out to be a lot easier that way.

Could you explain what is the proper way to do these turret fights I have had problems with them the few times I have tries that flashpoint

The turret fight(s) is(are) REALLY challenging. You just have to know what you're doing. Often you'll see one side being a lot more overrun than the others. It just takes skill and practice.

That said, it is VERY hard and most people probably can't do it. It takes 4 very experienced gamers.

Also, I wonder if taking damage on my character while in a turret is intended.

Could anyone be more specific on how to do these encounters. Like what buttons you push, which mobs to attack and any other tips you have. Thanks

Pretty easy to do. Everyone take one turret, turn aroud and shoot at that direction. It takes them more time to reach you and everybody cover middle. Try to kill ranged first.

1) Shoot ranged mobs first (the white drones)
2) Shoot whatever is closer to you
3) Collect loot

You don't have to push any buttons. All you need to do is hold down your right mouse button to aim the cannon. The cannon fires automatically.

3 turrets + 1 healing in the middle, piss easy, if you actually try 4 turrets it's impossible (unless you're a group of friends or something and have voice contact)

This instance is annoying. Oculus level annoying. People are going to walk in, get smashed, then never do it again.
