I just beat this on my level 45 Deception spec'ed Sith Assassin. I rotated through all my cooldowns. I started off with Electrocute and then hit my Heroic Moment to bring it back up. Then I cycled through Low Slash, Overload, and Jolt. I saved my second Electrocute for the inevitable time when he did another cast right after an interrupt and my others were on cool-down. I also tried to hang out near the pillars and used them to LOS one cast.

I also used Talos as my companion. He occasionally froze him in place and bought me a little extra DPS time.

Took my quite a few tries to get the cycling down. I had tried to use Whirlwind also, but my reflexes aren't quite fast enough to be able to catch him in time.

Just keep at it, and you can get it.

Both Sniper and Sorcerer took a few tries then use the LOS beat him.

My marauder got him on the 2nd try, using Jaesa to DPS him to death.

First off, this fight is 110% about INTERUPTING.......not your cooldowns, INTERUPTING..

Ive solo'd this fight on my Sith Assassin and Juggernaut

Its not about having "your bestest companionzorrz!"

Seriously, if you cant beat him, ignore all the fail above...

Find your interupt skills / short term CC's / etc

For juggernaut it i start like this;

Hit him, he starts to cast, Force Push....saber throw, scream OH hes casting, charge, interupted, ravage him, hes casting again!!! force choke, more slashing and hacking, at this point im at about 80% and hes around 30%....

OH KNOES! more casting! Disruption! (notice this is the FIRST time ive used my actual DISRUPT.........hes now around 20-15% by now, lotsa screaming, crushing blow, smash, etc, OH NO HES MAKING A LAST DITCH TO CAST SOME BADDIE STUFF !!!

BACKhanded like a little girl, ravage him, good night, thanks for coming (throughout this fight as a lvl 45 Juggernaut using JAESA (not healing companion) i never even used one of my defensive cooldowns, so to the newb saying its about cooldowns and companions, go L2Play


Id do a run down for the assassin really quick but id have to change chars to remember the proper names for the skills, but this fight really is candy from a baby easy.....

GO LEARN YOUR INTERUPT ABILITIES!!!!!
not everyone plays immortal tank spec. So not everyone has "force grip" (unchanneled force choke) or backhand. For those that do, sure, its easy, but what about marauders? Assassins have lots of interrupts too, but no all classes do. so telling ppl to L2P is childish and rude.

anyway, I always ask for help with this or wait until I'm 50. after my first try on this guy, I dont even bother soloing him until 50 unless I'm an immortal tank or something. @ 50 he is no problem.

Ugh, I hated this guy. I forgot what level I was at my last attempt, but I just gave up on it. Now I'm literally 3 quests away from dinging 50 on my Marauder, but I am still enjoying seeing how others did it.

Didn't have much trouble doing this with my Marauder, but I don't actually remember how I did it. But I do find it unfair that the Empire's avatar of Sel-Makor is so much tougher than the Republic one.

He was quite easy when I did him at first, but I did my lvling with a friend. When I came back with another character, solo, he was really difficult. By far the most difficult solo boss, including my storyline boss.
I was a mercenary when I did him solo. Took 3-4try. Beat him using LOS and self healing.

I don't really mind a difficult boss from time to time. I welcome a challenge, since everything else is easy.

My marauder is only 28 and not played a ton, but marauders have at least 2 abilities that can interrupt. With the los and running away from the aoe attack, that's all you need. (the actual interrupt and force choke interrupts too). If your interrupts aren't up you need to choose which tough attack you are going to eat if you can't los in time. I wouldn't be as rude as some of the guys here, but you have to use your skills with more thought as apposed to just random button mashing. (Ie save some of your attacks and don't blow the cooldowns needlessly.)

I appreciate tough encounters myself, much more satisfying when you beat them. I hope they don't retune the tougher fights to make them easy.
