At a certain point for old content, you can quite literally outgear it just in com gear (I tanked a bunch of old NiM stuff in level 60 186 gear). It's not optimal, since the damage ratios for those fights are different compared to the fights now. TBH, for old NiM content you can go either way and be fine. You're more likely to die to mechanics than DtPS or spikes (assuming competent healers).

There is an issue with the damage the Artillery droids are putting out on their ranged (basic attack). On a shadow I was taking ~18K unmitigated hits (not at home so can't post log), so a string of bad RNG on defensive rolls will hurt. Having said that it is doable and we did get through.

and also FYI don't burn the Buyer too hard first round or bad things happen

We did it a few weeks back, got the boss down after a few wipes, assuming we'd faceroll it (rude awakening), but the damage from the droids is indeed way too high, higher than it used to be (we cleared it pre-3.0) for sure. We were 8 manning it, so assumed the droids were doing the damage of 16 man. Was harder than some of the new HM bosses lol.
Piggy's armor debuff at cartel warlords needing cleansed every 5s is also a challenge, considering the cd increase on cleanse.

Nevermind
If you look at the guide from dulfy at this time, see how hard thiol and anakyn drop when tanking the droids. It's nothing new that they hit like this

You do actually. Just asked a guildy who did a Dragonslayer run last week and he said they one-shotted the fight. Sounds entirely like an RNG thing to me (NiM Brontes used to have some bad RNG too).
The dark is generous, and it is patient, and it always wins.
It always wins because it is everywhere.
