Run near it and AOE taunt.
Can stay targetted on whatever you were targeting before it appeared the whole time.
You realise that Powertech's have a "Targeted" AOE Taunt not a "Everything in the general area" AOE Taunt? I think you need to know other classes before telling then to L2P.

That's how the jugg/guardian AOE taunt works. It's PB-AOE. I'm not sure about the sin/shadow one.

The shadow multi-target taunt is also player-based AOE. But yeah, using an AOE taunt on the claw is just not going to happen with my Powertech, who is also a tank.

I still think taunting is a suboptimal strategy. Whoever has the claw's attention has to kite, CC or take lots of damage, and neither my PT nor my shadow can CC droids. Why shouldn't that be whoever is targetted rather than adding an extra layer of complication? I like to have both of my taunts to use when the turrets come up anyway as they do massive unavoidable damage if they latch onto the wrong person and you can't get them both with one taunt.

Yes, I can beat that. KP SM through GF, I join the group at fabricator.
The plan is that I do the puzzle alone, keep myself alive (gunnery commando), and everybody else is down there. But after the fight started, one of the tanks runs up to me. Like a cat with its tail on fire, he runs and jumps around between the consoles and presses the buttons entirely randomly. At first I was very annoyed, but then I saw the challenge. First time that solving Tower of Hanoi was actually fun! Every couple of minutes I was able to fire the right thing anyway, when he got stunned by a droid or pressed the right button by chance, and the tank down there had full campaign gear and survived it.
In the following 2 fights he pulled aggro and broke ALL cc's and re-cc's, but the other tank and the healers saved the day again - not a single wipe in the entire OP.
