Remove the requirement of device against the mental assault and reduce it to 8 men, that will let a lot more people do it, it's so hard to get a group now.

It's not designed for 8 men, you will need quite high gear to 8 men it.

The gear it drops is obsolete anyway, so I don't think it's worth development time to change at the moment. This is taking in consideration for the current development styles which are:

  1. Spend the majority of time playing around with the change and hardly get anything else done.
  2. Push it through development, break the encounter, patch it the next week so it can be completed but needs a workaround/has a major bug still, and then finally fix it next major content patch when it's obsolete again.

You also don't need to be exceedingly over-geared to 8-man it. 8 level 55 players in Arkanian gear should be more than enough given they are skillful at their class (skillful meaning tanks know how to swap, players know the mechanics, healers have their heals bound, and DPS can do the average DPS amount for their class + spec). Keep in mind this fight was designed for 16 level 50s in Rakata and Campaign gear.

It is completely irrelevant except for the ever useful buff which as long as it's available will be something guilds will keep slapping him up for.

Should be some trouble at least involved in a free stat buff.

Unaugmented, too!

If you're in augmented arkanian gear, you have 2x the hp and are capable of ~2x the healing/dps this fight was tuned for.

Perhaps like the xeno they should raise it to 55, instance it and make it into a 8/16m weekly encounter exactly.
