The first time I ever cleared that boss was just awesome. Best of luck to you, and I hope you post a kill shot here so we can share the experience!

I just wish we had more similar fights. This one is so cool! The whole theme of it is spot on. Interesting mechanics, cool atmosphere. Love this one! Thanks for the videos, all of them! You folks rock, big time!
In need a crew to finish a group content? We're here to help you! Find more info in this thread.

2nd phase has the Barrage following a random player, will do damage and a knockback effect if it touches someone.

there's some lightning balls spawning around the place and dps must kill them before they latch onto healers.

Quick Break Down:

Phase 1:
- Overcharge: Blue Lighting placed on primary target (usually tank)
- Laser Blast: 9 sec Channel used for Pillar Mechanic
- Hypergate Void: Huge Blue circle used to remove Overcharge
- Energy Distortion: Orbs spawned throughout Phase 1

Phase 2:
- Earthquake: Raid Wide AoE Damage
- Dread Bomb: Red Circle leap and smash
- Nanites: Green debuff gained every 15 sec randomly by players
- Radioactive Barrage: AoE single target tracked mechanic; randomly assigned to players

Phase 3:
- Fury of the Masters: Orange circles; soft enrage

Abridged Strategy:

Initiate pull. Use raid buffs and hard DPS on Kephess. Tanks should move Kephess to whichever pillar he attaches himself to in preparation for Laser Blast. As the primary tank picks ups Overcharge run it into Hypergate Void to remove it's effects. Other tank should taunt here in response. As Energy Distortion orbs come out have DPS pick them up. Must be DPS'd by those who aggro it. Cannot be killed by anyone else. Rinse and repeat this until 50% or timed push (can't find the note I have on this exact time). Phase 2: clear center and avoid Pillars. Players will gain nanites which damage over time and stack/go out every 15 seconds. We suggest waiting until at least two people have nanites. Find your way to a pillar and have those with nanites click to channel. Move Kephess to this pillar and have those player disengage their channel to drop it on Kephess. You'll have a period of increased damage taken by Kephess so make sure to capitalize on this. Radioactive Barrage will be ongoing through this phase. Player will be named through system text. Have that player move away from the group. Rinse and repeat these mechanics until 9%. At 9% stack group near Kephess and move tanks away from him. Avoid orange circles and heal through raid wide Fury of the Masters damage. Kill > Loot > Cheer

I should have the Kephess HM guide up this weekend. This week has been STUPID busy in real life!

complete...disaster
i had to do it in a pug group yaaay

first GROUP (yeah i had to re make the entire group)
two healers from the empire version of not good enough
one of them had the patience and tolerance of a small child and was very arrogant then he began complaining because someone was "not here" then tank makes a mistake, time to rage "what are you doing noob" (this is all the first boss by the way) then we wiped. he insta leaves without saying a word. this is the guy who on there live streams dies almost all the time and gets complained at for making mistakes yet here he is complaining for "simple mistakes being made"

SECOND GROUP
first and second boss all good cleared easy

operator... oh dear
first phase orange colour wipe because..well i have no idea what happened.
second attempt fist phase done but messy very messy the yellow team were terrible two of the failure droids come BEFORE they even killed there orbs and got the middle and console clicking done as soon as operator came we insta wiped
third attempt first phase done but messy once again then came operator not only do i find that red text hard to read but also one healer just didn't bother going to the middle to get shielded they just stood there.#
fourt fifth sixth...you know where this is going

You'll find there's two types of NiM Raiders, those who're helpful, and those with zero tolerance for any mistakes, sounds like you ran into the latter.
