Just did it solo as Combat Sentinel with rank 24 T7 as healer.

- Gates are gone
- No forcefield around the core
- It's tougher than other heroics I've done after 4.0
- Gear: mostly 208s with 216 offhand, 7x crit augments (200), no crystal in offhand
- I only died once and that was because I aggro'd two groups at the same time and T7 went down spam healing

Is it soloable? Yes, it's tough though.

To kill the boss at the end you have to interrupt the heal. Otherwise there's no chance to defeat that boss alone.

Because it's attached to a weekly, I really think BW:A should downscale it and the mobs to H2+ level.

Pity I mained a Serenity Shadow with Qyzen in heals...

You need to burst **** down in there, switch to Infil.

That, and interrupt, interrupt, interrupt!

I thought about that, and there's a reason specs like that are best used with a tanking companion.

Using maul/shadow strike is pretty much a must in that rotation; and it's less available if you're using an healing companion (past experience is that kind of teacher, yes), and unavailable with an H4 boss (Boss stun immunity), unless you start off your rotation with that, and it may be the only time you ever get to use it, barring mass mind control threat drops, which are, at best, a crap-shoot. The only interrupt we get is mind snap, which has an 18 sec CD (personally, I think they should have no CD in PvE, and a 30 sec CD when PvP-flagged), and two things you need to interrupt when he goes below 50% (or maybe 25%) HP. That heal-steal (I cannot remember the name, sorry) needs interrupting initially, but it has to be ignored when he starts activating that channeled self-heal (also cannot remember it's name, but I know it heals for quite an amount, and should be interrupted, whenever possible).

Oh, right the maul. (Sin/Shadow is the one class/combat-archetype I could never really get into; Playstyle just doesn't suit me.)

"Force Siphon," I think it's called or "Life Siphon," or something like that. A high-influence tank comp. is good against him, but then my Mercs can off-heal them, which is surely helpful.

For those having trouble with the boss, I believe you can skip him by going to any of the side balconies for the clicky at the end. I go to the left balcony and I'm still in range of the core

Yep, this worked! Tried soloing the boss and even when I interrupted his heal, he still went back to full from ~20%. I was about to quit in frustration over it before seeing your comment. Thanks!

Because someone was having trouble with the heroic, came to the forums to do research, and then responded with their results.
