I'll be checking out entrench in nightmare mode for both KP and EV this next reset. I'll post what happens for anyone who's wondering if it works in the new patch.

Update: Doesn't look like my guild will be doing KP / EV this week due to the progression in EC, maybe next week.

Wait wait, you mean the infernal council EV individual fight, when the marauders (the boss for dps) knock you out of entrench is actually a bug?

I REALLY REALLY HATE WHEN HE DOES THAT.

That quest is called Multiple Fronts, and the mobs that use the knockback missiles are called Guerilla Commandos. They come in packs of 2-3 or so, so as a sniper getting repeatedly knocked back without anything to do about it, especially since we're only in the upper 20s and still heavily reliant on Snipe for damage, it's pretty frustrating and quite easy to die on that quest (even if you know what you're doing).

lol Yeah. It probably would be easier to list the ones that it actually works on but then again, after that Multiple Fronts; I think I quit trying as I don't think it ever has worked in any of my other attempts.

The rocketeers on Alderaan knock you out even if you're entrenched. When they do their rocket launch.

There are a lot of things in raid that knocks you out or up that I really think entrench should block! I wish a Dev would post as to specifically whether or not we should be reporting when it does not work in raids; be it on trash or raid bosses. I would expect that it never working on raid bosses is the mechanic they intended, but clarity would be nice after that previous yellow post.

Yes I can also confirm the commandos on the one quest in Alderon knock you out of entrench every time. Just last night too I was on Voidstar and popped entrench defending a door and suddenly very soon was knocked out of it. This has happened on a few occasions in pvp. On a huttball I noticed I was knocked back out of entrench (only about 5 feet but still ruined entrench).

Most times I see issues with it it seems related to knockbacks but seeing how I can't show any combat information in my chat windows no matter what I do (reload ui and making sure combat information is checked) I cannot report what could be causing this.

Dont forget that Diversion from th Marksman tree does knock you out of cover even while entrenched, next time it happens, look for the green smoke cloud.
