Quest Help Fighting Inquisitors

I'm a level 50 Assassin. I am having trouble with every story mission that has me fighting a sith inquisitor. The biggest problem seems to be that they use lighting storm every ten seconds. I've tried jolting it so it doesn't go off, but I still can't get these guys to die. My experience to date is to just level up three levels and go back and muscle through the fight. But now I am level 50 and I have to kill Darth Kallous in the quest called the Duel to proceed and I can't gain any more levels. I am dps specced with as much willpower and crit as I can. I get all my gear from oranges that I get for handing in commendations. I have been using Khem as my companion because I can make gear for him as a synthweaver. I tried using Xalec on some other mobs and he gets burned down even faster. I tried using the healer but I can't make equipment for him and I am trying to save credits. So my question is how do I beat this guy. Am I just using the wrong companion or is there some other trick that I am missing. I can get him down to around a third health before I have to vanish.

By the way I just have to say that these class missions are much too hard at the end and should be easier so you get to see all the content. The side missions are a LOT easier and it makes no sense. Also the space missions get way too hard. One of them has you kill 150 mines. I mean 150. That is a bit excessive if you ask me.

Do you have a self heal?

I had to resort to kiting to win ALOT of the tougher fights, get aggro and play with Line of sight as much as possible till your pet gets, aggro again, then take aggro back, run...repeat till dead.

Since my method is basically me doing the tanking (even though I'm just running), i'd go with my best DPS pet and TURN OFF any tanking Abilities your pet may have (Taunt/Challenge etc.). Keep as many dots up as you can, sneak a hit were you can and keep on the move.

good luck.

I'm an assassin so I can't kite the mob. I don't have a self heal. If I don't have something tanking for me I die in 10 seconds.

Similar position now. I haven't had problems with any previous quests up until now, just trial and patience but Kallous is giving me a pain in the butt. Can't imagine how the big boss will be but that lightening, even behind LoS is a killer. I use my healer companion, though I have tried others, health pack and my 20 minute CD health regen and even sacrifice but no go. I got to about my 20% once or twice.

And that's with all my stuns when they're ready to go and I'm getting my *** kicked. I suppose I can't get to level 53 ;-).

I did this fight with Talos healing, darkness spec. What you have to make sure to do is keep Talos out of his AoE's and keep his aggro, do that and just slowly chip away at his HP, if Talos is decently geared at all he should keep you alive no problem. Pack an Exceptional Medpac and Endurance or Willpower stim.

im having the same issue. does anyone know if you can have a friend help you out with this quest ? or does it have to be done solo ? this is really frustrating
The galaxy isn't split into Good and Evil. We've all have both light and dark inside us. What matters is the part we choose to act on.

Hello, I was having same problem but I saw this hint in this website http://www.swtorhub.com/db/quests/501836863766528 and basically says that try to bring him closer to the elevator and those guards will help to defeat him. I did it and it worked.

First off bring your healer with you. A lot of people bring a dps or a tank to a fight. no no bring your healer. Secondly an inquitors weakness is his aclarity. So interrupt it. When you interrupt a spell or cast they they are wide open for a dps spank. Since they have light armor it won't take long to wear them down. Just interrupt their casts and time your attacks, you will do fine. Also if you are not that skilled with doting bring medcaps, boost and use your heroic moment. Every class has one.

Good luck
