This boss is so god &*^%$# bugged it's ridiculous, every time we get to stage three SOA bugs out....1) Falling through floors,or they dont appear 2) When SOA floats u in the air u fall and die 3) Getting insta-killed from 100% hp..... 4) mind traps tank and resets boss?!?!?! all 9 times ran one of these buggs wiped or reset the boss.... Absolutely retarded.... this endgame content should not have been released, This would never happen in any other MMO and if it did it would be fixed the next day.

-end rant, fix your game or make it FTP

i have yet to see falling through the floor, them not appearing is easy to fix with raid reset. the only time i have seen anyone die to throw is during transitions which is usually savable with extricate. getting killed instantly also rarely happens, almost always you were in an effect that you may not have been able to see. the boss himself does not always update his position correctly between server and client, same with some of the effects. its one of the few that we havent really been able to nail down, but these kinds of things is what brez are for. boss reset due to mindtrap is either you or an offtank not taunting correctly.

the vast majority of bugs are more than beatable with good play.

This is the problem.. THE VAST MAJORITY OF BUGS.... There should not have to be a "workaround".

This is endgame we are talking about here.. not some random *** quest on alderaan...

I think what has really got people ticked is the fact that they said it was fixed and that they are running everything just fine on their end. Then we get this patch and its the same ol' ****...

Good play or not.. when the damn mob just dissappears and resets, its not a matter of good play.. its a matter of just plum luck... and crap programming...

Half-*** work will never get you anywhere... Trust me.. I use to have to do the dishes 5 times when I was a kid cause I tried to rush it because I wanted to do something else... But when I got a job washing dishes as a teenager I MADE SURE it was done correctly or it was my job, or even worse.. someone getting poisoned or something cause I was lazy and incompetent...

Long story short.. get stuff fixed correctly the first time... I would much rather wait a month to know it is truly working the way it should be than get half-*** work and false promises for a month.

Did they test this stuff on the public test server? If so, can someone that actually tested it comment on it? was it working correctly there?

when he starts to cast mindtrap on you then either you or your designated offtank need to taunt. do this and he wont reset. would it be any more of a bug if he mind trapped the tank and walked around 1 shotting healers? cause honestly thats pretty much what this equates to. there are very few pulls that are wipes to actual bugs. if you can prevent it, intended mechanic or not, its your responsibility to do so.

I was off-tanking the ops and i didnt even have time to taunt before he reset, it was ridiculous and on our last try there were pieces of the floor again were missing during phase 2! These bugs are dumb the only reason we were in there because it was supposed to be fixed.... they need to stop rushing content and work on it AND TEST IT before its released.

If I recall after reading some of the PTS threads, they don't have 50's to test end game Ops and FP's. Maybe every character resets after a new patch? Doesn't make any sense, but that's what Ive been hearing.

Take it with a grain of salt

Really? So if I play better, I could:

Avoid the missing floor
Avoid a crystal dropping on my head while being pulled into a mind trap
Avoid the boss resetting when a tank get mind trapped
Avoid the crystal not breaking the boss' shield

So you tell me that all of those are a L2P issue?

Wake up and stop defending this piss poor broken fight.
