my group couldnt do him, he simply one-shotted the tank at 30%. no enrage, no storm, no rocks, nothing. Just bam, oneshot. (no combat log either to check what it was)

Seems bugged, either enrage buff doesnt show (in which case, RLY short enrage timer), or there's another mechanic thats bugged. Gear can't be the issue (i tanked all of EV and Karagga's and we killed all bosses except SOA and bonecrusher).

No they need to fix this, better dps lol its a Flashpoint and even Raid Gear People have problems with this Boss. Its bugged.

I think its the Force lighnting thats bugged, normally he would do 60k dmg over 3-5 ? seconds with this but he cast it instantly.

To check enrage, there is a red portrait next to the regular blue and yellow portrait buff. It sneaks up on you. The boss doesn't turn red or anything, you just die really fast. If it's around 30%, meaning you lack dps. If it's bugged, you'll die within the first min of encounter, not after you get it to 30% after a series of same mechanic. (especially if you didn't even come anywhere close to the lightning, rock throwing phase).

The chest bugging out isn't. But if his one shot lightning is interruptable, or if it's enrage, then quite possibly.

It's Force Lightening, the first tick of it is not interruptable and one shots our full epic gear 19k hp Juggernaught then deals 56k damage to the rest of us. He's also not enraged. Maybe don't comment on stuff you've never experienced

Weren't people complaining how easy "he" was pre release. Looks like Bioware listens

Joking aside, I sure hope HM gets fixed before I get to them.

Its weird because the natural progression in gear doesn't seem to apply to this game. I still love it but....

For us:

BT, Fallen Emperor, Battle of Ilum. No problems on hard except for a few mishaps here and there, and with gear now, hilariously easy.

Foundry, Boarding Party. Challenging, generally because of the bugs.

Eternity Vault Normal, walk in the park. Free loot.

Directive 7 hard, lolwtffffffffffff.

So you end up actually gearing in EV to do 4-man heroics. OPPOSITE DAY!!!
