Okay... We have MULTIPLE Problems here.
1) This is SM and the damage OUT is not in line with SM version (more like HM numbers)
2) HOW are the Guardian's casting Affliction?
3) Just a hair Overtuned for SM version. (Yes.. I'll say it.. NERF SM of this, but keep HM version as-is)
4) Don't nerf it then increase the LOOT drop to 72. Crappy 69 boots for this fight is a joke. HM OP IX is easier. LOL

Took us a while looking at logs and trying to figure out HOW we kept getting affliction after the Corrupters died. Clearly either the SLAM is putting a DOT equal to the HIT that spams for roughly 7 ticks and it's labled wrong or you guys have a really screwed up BUG on the Guardian's. Even with a healing CLEANSING this dot it came right back (Not from the Corrupters either)

23:30:05.647 Guardian of the Fortress hits you with Affliction for 6141 internal (Absorbed 277) damage.
23:30:07.637 Guardian of the Fortress hits you with Affliction for 5456 internal (Absorbed 962) damage.
23:30:09.638 Guardian of the Fortress hits you with Affliction for 5456 internal (Absorbed 962) damage.
23:30:11.062 Guardian of the Fortress hits you with Affliction for 6418 internal damage.
23:30:11.647 Guardian of the Fortress hits you with Affliction for 6418 internal damage.
23:30:13.252 Guardian of the Fortress hits you with Affliction for 6418 internal damage.

I would say we have an ISSUE. SLAM is not hitting us here, but it appears the that Guardians some how magically get this ability on top of the nice AOE Slam. Note the 2 second ticks.

This is STORY MODE? PUG groups are supposed to down this boss (Add fight)? LOL 6k ticks on a fight in SM?

NOTE: This is not the damage from the Dread Guard Corrupter(s) either. Same log:
22:43:24.202 Dread Guard Corrupter hits you with Afflict for 233 internal damage.
22:43:33.433 Dread Guard Corrupter hits you with Afflict for 198 internal (Absorbed 35) damage.
22:44:39.884 Dread Guard Corrupter hits you with Afflict for 0 internal (Absorbed 233) damage.
22:44:41.484 Dread Guard Corrupter hits you with Afflict for 233 internal damage.
22:44:43.004 Dread Guard Corrupter hits you with Afflict for 198 internal (Absorbed 35) damage.
22:44:47.047 Dread Guard Corrupter hits you with Afflict for 233 internal damage.
22:44:48.674 Dread Guard Corrupter hits you with Afflict for 233 internal damage.
22:44:53.775 Dread Guard Corrupter hits you with Afflict for 233 internal damage.
22:44:55.298 Dread Guard Corrupter hits you with Afflict for 233 internal damage.
22:44:56.913 Dread Guard Corrupter hits you with Afflict for 233 internal damage.

Yeah and it ticks for 3,536 in 16M Story and 3,598 in 8m Hard...so there's obviously something not right.

There have been numerous posts about the bug/difficulty in general with the encounter, confirmed by many combat logs that the Story Mode 8 man version of the Guardians Affliction DoT hits for almost double than that of the Heroic version.

I don't believe a 8M Story Mode encounter is meant to be harder than its Hard Mode counterpart? Aside from this bug making it nearly impossible for pugs, the 156 gear rating you suggest would be impossible as well, guilds with 168 gear are having troubles healing through this currently. It would be nice to have some sort of confirmation on this, and get it fixed...or at least say it's working as intended.

At least an acknowledgement in any of the above threads that the issue has been noted and is being investigated would be nice.

Also, the insta-run out of the portals could use some attention.

Patch notes released for tonights maintenance, no Ops tweaks at all, what a let down.

Are we ever going to get an answer on this? If for some unknown reason, it's working as intended, at least let us know.

Since this issue exists we went to DP instead and actually discovered another SM only bug, the healing challenge on Raptus is impossible to win. There are a bunch of threads on that as well, it is much easier on Hard Mode. Well I should say, it's possible to complete on HM vs impossible on SM lol. I can't believe there were absolutely NO ops tweaks in this patch. At least the Raptus bug isn't the end of the world...just makes the boss slightly more harder.

So the questions about the 2nd digital expansion announced today get same day answers, but we can't get an acknowledgement of the *serious* bugs in the new operations in less than a week?

Come on Bioware, you can do better than this.

Seems odd that it can't be Purged. Most likely an oversight, you can heal through it though. Just requires co ordination.
