Revenge of the Archon: too hard?

my immortal jug had no problem with Toborro, but my pyrotech had loads.
couldn't target refueling droids on the raised platform (didn't matter if droid's nameplate was red or yellow). I had to be right next to the platform where Toborro was on or on it.
The fuel rods didn't drop well either. They rarely dropped

a sorcerer would have an easier time of it with earthquake and lightning storm available for aoe to take out the refueling droids.

I just dont get how so many people dont understand to just not stand in front of the giant freaking laser beam...

see that little passive button on your companion that makes him follow you and not attack? yeah, use that to drag him out of the laser beam area too and the quest is super easy.

I baffle that players actually make to post 50 without being able to micro manage companion or utilize basic tactics like not standing in bad.
For every man there is a sentence, a string of words, which has the power to destroy him.

Let me share, what i friend and I learned...

It is good, if you have a healer pet, and keep him in passive, until you need healing.

Now here it the trick:

Make sure you defeated all the mobs at the room area before the archon.

Go fight the archon, kill bots, and use the yellow rods the robots drop to destroy generators, you may not need to do this, but trust me defeating the baddie will go much faster.

Now after a time, you will get hurt, leave the room and as you leave hang a left and go as far left you can with out leaving that second room.

This is important. The baddie does not reset, but you are considered disengaged and can then remove the passive of your pet and have him heal you. Once healed, place him back in passive, and go back to killing bots and damaging the archon, this will be a wash, rinse and repeat process, but you can do it, relativley safely. Its more of a patience test, more than anything else. I do suggest by the time you are down to 30% left of health, go and get healed.

If you have two players, it works great, because you can one player attack, while the otehr heals.

Thanks. I wiped like 5 times last night on my marauder. I was focusing on the droids too much and not the Archon, and eventually ran out of health. Dodging the beam was easy, its the other damage that did me in. I will try your tactic tonight.

Did this on my sniper a couple weeks ago, specced Marksman.

Fight went something like: activate heroic moment, legacy orbital strike, orbital strike, pretty basic MMS sniper rotation.

Poor thing died in under a minute if I recall correctly.

I soloed this with on Republic side and it was hard but ok. Took me two tries.

Now i'm playing the empire version and this is a very different story!! I failed every single time so far. The problem is that he does that thing where you get thrown back to the end of the room and slowed and shoot upon. I have no idea how to deal with this properly. Also the generator does not open up for me. I destroy the bots, pick up the fuel rod but i cannot destroy the generator because the red force field is blocking the way.

Can anyone help?

1. For the red lazer of death, at the second you get ported to mid, start making your way behind the pillars that are next to you. They will protect you.
2. You just have to wait I guess. The forcefield will lower at some point.

Hope this helps. Didn't help me, though.

The first time I did this I got killed out right due to laser beam. I was like "Oh so thats how your going to play". Took me a few tries but I got him. I was on my jug with quinn. I did not even have to leave the room or bother with the droids (took longer) but quinn kept me healed and I was fine. It is just when you get thrown in the middle go to the left or right at once. Wait for him to fire the beam go in do damage rinse and repeat. For some reason however I think quinn was bugged because he took the laser beam to the face and survived everytime.

I did it as a marauder with vette. Died the first time as I had no idea of mechanics.

2nd time I started the attack off to the side so vette wouldnt get hit by the giant laser thingy, then I just ran around killing refuelling droidswhilst dropping bleeds on archon for my heals, vette took him down .

I didnt do the thing at the back as I totally missed when the shields came down , but other than that it was fairly simple once I realised what was going on.
