What this wise man said. It is true there are easier Heroic 2+ quests than this particular one but there's really no need to nerf it so it becomes soloable.

Most Heroic 2+ are soloable if you can CC one of the mobs, but this does not account for the fact that different classes have limitations on what they can CC. For example Shadow/Assassins can't CC droids, so a 3Xstrong droids would be very hard to solo. Anyone who can CC a droid would have no problem. For classes that have generic CC (Merc/Sor), the Heroic 2+ are easy. For other classes, you've to hope the heroic features stuff you can CC. And if you don't have a CC, you can forget soloing them at an appropriate level.

2+ IMO gives the impression that it COULD be done solo with companion, I tried this with my Jedi Guardian at L22 and again at L24 and it was flat out undoable solo...I then went in again with 2 other L20+ players and 1 companion @ L24, others were a Jedi Sentinel and Guardian L22 I think and we were able to complete it but it was not a cakewalk by any means...

The problem I see with this heroic quest is the mobs hit ridiculously hard, harder than ANY other mob I have encountered to date....

Trying it solo, I could have my companion tank 1 and I could take down 1 of them and about 1/3 to 1/2 on the other before dying, and that is using saber ward, medpac etc...

I think this heroic needs to be tuned down, heck I 2-manned Total Elimination a 4+ heroic with a trooper and it was FAR easier to do than 3-manning this 2+ heroic, something is amiss here don't you think?

As far as my guardian goes, I have had VERY little trouble with any (heoric or otherwise)mobs to date, UNTIL I encountered this heroic, and I have kept my gear up to date, in fact all through Taris it has been betetr than any reward I have gotten so far....and I have used commendation to upgrade to best mods offered...

Hopefully you check into this heroic and adjust it, 2+ hreoice SHOULD be able to be done solo with a companion, particularly if you are a few levels above the mobs, and that clearly is not the case...either that or change it to a 4+ heroic and leave as is....
Considering that many mobs are very easy to beat, it's nice to have a challenging mission where we die multiple times trying to reach something.

So you tried group content without a healer and complain it's too hard?

Take a healer.

I did both Nightfall and Mutations, which are 2+ heroic end world content on Taris Solo with Kira and had little problems....I expect trying to solo a 2+ heroic to be potentially challenging\difficult...however the point of my post was that the Rakghoul Release 2+ heroic is flat out undoable with solo & companion and possibly with 2+ players and companions.....I finished this heroic with 2 other players AND 1 companion and there were some deaths and it was not easy....

My point is either properly label this as a 4+ heroic, which in its current state is what it essentially is or tune down some of the damage, specifically the stacking damage that the rakghouls give to fit it properly as a 2+ heroic....

Unless Bioware states differently, and they have not as far as I am aware, a 2+ heroic should be doable BUT challenging to a solo player w\companion....Same goes for a 4+ heroic, doable but challenging for 2 players w\companions....and all of the other 4+ heroics and other 2+ heroics on Taris accurately reflect that philosophy, this quest does not...
2+ does not mean 1 player and a companion. It means 2 players and their companions should be able to do it. Accept this.
