huh... I get adds spawning with every core - outer or inner. its kinda annoying because if I jump down, but my gosh darn companion decides to jump up (BAD BLIZZ), I get line of sight issues, both with adds and with companion and then I cannot go back up and get him compat rezzed and its just a pain.

honestly - the most difficulty I've had with this fight was companion related more then anything else. (if I tell you to attack that core on the bottom, you do NOT jump back up, you attack the core and let the adds come to us. damn it. what good is ability to direct companions if they don't listen to you??)

/deep breath.

enrage can be a bit annoying as well though. very annoying.

one thing I've noticed though is sometimes, vigilant just stands there and he's easy to kill.

other times he goes into a freaking "pull you in and stun you" over and over and over to the point where I don't even have time to use abilities in between being stunned and trying to run away from being stunned again. annoying butthole.

No. he will enrage if you get him down to about 10%. I went in a 4 man group and he picked up the tank and tossed him like a dog toy. We cut him down though.

pretty sure enrage is timed not percentage based.

depending on which character I soloed him on, he sometimes enraged before I killed all the cores and sometimes around 30% ish.

I think I'm going to start timing it, just to make sure.

honestly, i feel like that fight is bugged :/ some time I get blue circled when killing a core at the top. and sometimes I don't. sometimes I get adds right away. other times they wait until I kill another core and then show up 4 at a time. sometimes I managed to finish off a core and move on to the next before I start getting blue circled, and other times, he starts putting them on me the moment I attack the first core.

and his pull in>stun> AoE sequence that either doesn't happen at all, or happens so often, I literally have no time to do anything else... that just can't be right.

so far i've been been able to successfully solo kill him on hybrid healer/lightning sorc and full healer operative. came somewhat close with hybrid healer/arsenal merc but not close enough. (switched to hybrids, because I wasn't dealing enough damage as full healer, and was taking too much damage as full dps) granted - sorc and operative have better gear than my merc, but still...

I know this is an older thread, but this is still happening for myself and a friend. We ran this last night with a 25K DPS and a 20K Healer, and could not beat it. As soon as we finished the last core, he would jump to one of us, already enraged. If he chose to jump to my friend (Healer), he would hit him with 22K for an instant kill. If he jumped to me first, I could survive for about 30 seconds by running for my life and hitting the kolto tanks. But he just keeps attacking with those 18K and 22K hits, and that's just impossible to survive from the get go! On our last try (we tried this about 6 times, I think), he even hit me from across the room. I can't imagine this is the intended behavior for SM...

I've watched videos of others beating it, and it doesn't seem he should be enraged from the beginning. Grrr...frustrating.

Sounds like you are taking too long to kill the cores.

Possibly, we are moving kind of slow. Will have a go at it again tonight, see if we can adjust speed and hopefully that will make a difference.
