SWTOR needs more things like this that take lots of time and/or effort to earn. Personally, I didn't even know about this but now it's something I can look forward to achieving and just gives me one more cool thing to do.
Frankly, now having the achievement myself I do not agree with this. There is nothing respectworthy about an achievement you can only get right after maintenance. All it states is you have either no real life or are lucky enough to not have any obligations at that time (or are lucky enough to be on a server where it is still possible to have a second Taris instance).

If he was a lvl 55 world boss that presented a significant challenge to down for a group (or even a particularly complex solo fight for a max level character) then I could see having him only spawn once, as that would add to the genuine achievement that downing him represents.

As it is, the only "accomplishment" signified by downing him is "I don't have to be at work when the patch finishes".

This should be changed if it's not a bug, and fixed if it is.
Given the choice whether to rule a corrupt and failing empire or to challenge the fates for another throw, a better throw, against one's destiny, what was a king to do?
But does one ever truly have a choice? One can only match, move by move, the machinations of fate, and thus defy the tyrannous stars.

Agreed. I struggled with this for ages before I realised the "after-maintenance" route.

I am lucky enough to live in APAC where we enjoy maintenance times during our peak hours. So I only had to be awake at 10pm most Tuesdays (during our winter) to be on right after maintenance.

But really, are we saying that's some sort of skill that I have? Do I deserve my achievements more than others because I am lucky enough that BW don't care about my time zone at all when they schedule their maintenance? I mean, yey me, right? I got mad skillz right there.

This one is really crazy. Yeah, I mean, you should have some rare hard content, but lets not overdue it. People mostly get it after server reset, I even took vacation for it, but still didn't log in time (didn't even see a corpse).

What I did today is I let my character at the respawn spot, with my companion up, and kept the directional key pressed, so when he spawns, he agrros and my companion kills him. But believe me, that is silly! There is also a big chance that someone might get him instead of me anyway.

Hopefully I will have my achievement when I come home!

Finally I got him too after a new instance was created 5 min ago on T3-M4. Had a Jedi-Knight standing there and when I was looking for datacrons on another char I noticed the growing server population. At 116 players the second instance was created. Luck for me

Most servers no longer have that kind of population to create a new instance. I barely even see a second instance of the Republic fleet anymore...

Bump, logged in (4 min after servers went up) and he was dead. TBhH I blame Bioware evn more because servers went up before time and I didnt notice.

Anyways, fix this? Fix it fast?

I killed it multiple times before the achievement system was introduced, makes me never want to do the achievement system.

I think I randomly killed him (for the lulz) on a datacron run. Cannot remember when it was, though, so might've been before 'chieves.
