When we were in our 20s, my group of three tried to kill (LVL 22) Grandfather in Balmorra, but his health kept resetting, as did his aggro table. He had some buff (can't remember the name) that I Googled and couldn't find any good info on. We then saw a level 50 come in and actually be able to reduce the world boss's health.

1) What was my group doing wrong that his health wouldn't go down?
2) And are world bosses with a level of X meant to be done by a group of level X, or a level 50 group regardless of boss level?

They need to be level appropriate. IE: A L49 can not damage the world boss on Belsavis because the boss is L50.

We were at or above the boss's level.

If that is the world boss im thinking of, he has a constant health regen buff that you need to out damage.

World bosses are generally meant to be taken on by an operation group (probably at least 10-12 players at the level of the boss).

So your group of 3 probably had 1 DPS where the boss is tuned for probably 7-9 DPS. With a health regen mechanic you aren't going to be able to take it down.

I thought this forum was for making **** up and having 10 pages of replies complaining about what you made up? Is it supposed to be used for something else?

You need a large amount of players to defeat a world boss at same level. When we killed Grandfather it was with 15 players. If you don't kill them in a certain time, they will enrage and deal extra damage. Obviously, if you have higher level players help, it is much easier. World bosses will reset if you move them too far away from where they start.

if you move grandfather like 15 feet either direction he resets kinda like taking the belsavis boss out of the water right behind him
