truth is kaliyo is a terrible tank, and that we don't get any other tank companion

I fought him when I was 33, not sure what level you where. I used kaliyo as I feel she works better with the engineering tree as she can set off cluster bombs where vector won't.

This fight seems like a test of everything you have learned up to this point. You need to use stuns and your instant cast ability that causes him to cancel casting (forget the name and am at work right now) to win this fight but if you do that it's not that hard. If you have been ignoring upgrading your companions gear you might have issues to.

Did you do all the solo quests on Alderian? I felt a couple of the last solo instances where you had to kill some elites were much tougher fights, at least for me. If you use yours stuns Jadus doesn't do that much damage, the last couple instances on Alderian they put out a lot of damage even with them.

As a Sniper (barely 32), this was very hard for me. I was there with Vector (who was trapped by CC most of the time anyhow), but I surmise that Kaliyo might be slightly more useful in this fight.

Thing is: if you try to use cover mechanics, you're pretty much busted. Jadus is on you faster than you can shoot a Womp Rat, frying your pretty behind.

I eventually prevailed by kiting him around the room, mostly just using the basic shots (as a Sniper with ranged specialisation, this is pretty much the only thing you can do). Once in a while I dropped into cover for a fraction of a second (to activate my instant Snipe, followed by a Follow Through). All the while
a) hiding behind consoles to break his line of sight and
b) interrupting his spells.
c) rooting him can come in handy, too.
d) Shielding/self-healing as much as possible (self-healing was limited to a medpac and the Advanced Recon Drone in one segment of the fights).

All in all, still a very hard fight for me to solo with my spec, but very rewarding when I finally had managed it.

Final note: If you choose to restart at the Entry Point, all enemies will be up again (you will have to clear them out around the bridge in order to kite Jadus).

Happy hunting!

I was a level 30 Medic and had a heap of trouble with him. In the end I had to get help from a friend

I just had this fight 30 minutes ago, he kicked my *** a few times, then I had the pleasure of kicking his *** a few times :P

Best thing to do is to run around, and kite him some while your companion keeps hitting him. use the computer terminals to hide and run like a little girl:P

When your interrupts are up use them, shoot him some and run again ...

The problem you are all having is you are trying to beat him in a fight. Maybe you should try to beat him -without- a fight?

Jadus has his superduper-lightning with an enormous casttime. Save your interrupt abilities for these. If your interrupts are all on CD when he winds up another spell of doom hide behind a computer panel.

Did it last night as a level 32 agent spec heal. The first one was pretty tough, he hits likes a truck and kaliyo barely survived.

Then I somehow managed to pass the first fight and then it was pretty much easy with the hots and letting Kaliyo do everything. you're just here to stun and interupt.

It was pretty easy, although it requires someone playing quite well without a target's target's thingy.

the first time is hard you have to nuke him with everything you got

but every time afterwards you just have to LoS the long cast he does or youre dead
