I'm level 17 and I just beat him. I followed advice of "nunaguna" and had Kira jump in first then I attacked, when Kira got killed I used leg slash so I could back away enough to heal up a bit then when he caught back up I used everything I had and it just barely worked. Leg Slash was key though, if I hadn't used it I would have died for sure.

im lv17 and have literally spent 3 hours going at every which angle to destroy him.

I agree in that sending Kira in first for a few well aimed hits, and then jumping in and attacking from behind just about did it. But I still had to heal with a medpack near to the end

The T7 nerf bites everyone. Since that encounter was balanced for the pre-nerf T7. Obviously, the little thing needs an upgrade, and not just parts you put on him, but SPECIAL MANUFACTURER PARTS.

I have tried everything and still can't beat him this is getting ridiculous, I've lost all my credits trying to beat this guy. I'm out of ideas and credits.

Marcovic was a beast. With T7 I died perhaps 5 times before switching to Kira, after which I still died at least 5 more times before beating him by pure luck. When he came back with 1 HP I instantly killed him; I didn't have the invinvible Marcovic problem some seem to have. Compared to him, the Sith Inquisitor who held Kira prisoner was cake.

He's a Melee Specialist. WAY overpowered for his level. Same as Vessex Ulgo on Imp side Alderaan.

Seriously, BioWare didn't do a very good job of balancing NPC mobs, Elites especially, when you can tear through some Elites, have a good challenge with other Elites, and ONLY be able to beat some by sheer luck if not in a group.

My list of Sheer Luck Elites:

Vessex Ulgo (Imperial side, Alderaan)
LT Marcovick (Republic side, Jedi)
Avatar of Sel-Makor (Imperial side, Voss)
Darth Angral (Republic side, Jedi)
Sorcerer-type NPCs.
Melee Specialist NPCs.
Jump Jet Assault NPCs.
Nemesis NPCs.
Shadow NPCs.

All badly balanced.
. OPOD
Shivalka: Darth Baras is quite large, isn't he?
Joran Karn: You, my dear Sith, have just mastered the art of understatement.

Yep, I hated Marcovic, but he was like a walk in the Elysium compared to Angral and the Sand Demon. But, my current quarrel is with the Sith Harrowers (Guided by the Force). Really annoying. Two levels overpowered for that quest, had Balmorran Fortitude stim on, and still nothing. Gonna go for lvl 36 and hope for a miracle.

I don't even remember this guy or this fight, I must have done something right the first time I tried it.

But I could *not* beat that next guy, on the ship. Who's name I can't remember.. the one who's after Kira and has the KB of God. Just for giggles I had my husband bring his trooper to help me, same level, and stood back while he soloed him. The fight was trivial for a ranged class, but utterly, completely, thoroughly and wholly! not possible for my poor jk.

I wonder how many levels I would've had to sit on that mission if I didn't have anyone to help me.

Actually, I have the cure for Melee Specialists and that guy. I remember who you're talking about, but not his name. Asir or Assir or something like that. Soresu Form and liberal use of Generate Focus or whatever it's called. Also, Guard Kira as well, and let her DPS for you. Yes, his KB is insane, and he has that Dark Force shot that can knock down quite a bit of your health. Just keep moving and Interrupt him whenever possible.

The key to killing the Harrowers is INTERRUPT their Ravage. Force Stasis, Force Kick, Force Push, whatever it takes.
