Have you tried Boarding Party yet?

Hard Mode Directive 7's end-boss is flat-out broken. Similar to how Malgus sometimes bugs and turns invincible and yet un-"puntable" the final boss cannot be killed as, the shielding that makes him invulnerable never breaks, despite doing all the other content in the boss fight. Beyond that, Directive 7 is fairly easy. The "Bulwark" Droid has a hard-enrage timer of 3:20. The rest of the bosses are boringly easy on Hard Mode.

Heroic battle of ilum is easy, one shot every boss. Don't get any loot from last boss tho.

How is boarding party THAT difficult for people? The only thing that sucks is the bug chest.

Pretty sure this is what you need damage meters for.

Mentor is not broken. He's probably the easiest fight in that instance if your group knows not to stand in the red target circles and run away from the claw. All you have to to is click on the pylons after each "wave" of adds to get rid of his shield.

No he's bugged, we destroyed all pylons and his shield just stayed on.

Mentor isn't broken in the sense that hes too difficult, hes broken in that he is easily bugged out, and unable to finish due to his shield not turning off after destroying all the cores.

Bulwark is pretty easy too, you don't even have to worry about the enrage timer really, once it pops, the tank just needs to LOS him, and everybody is free to burn him down and the repair droids as they spawn, as he locks aggro on the tank when he goes into enrage. GG.

Last boss is impossible without a very well geared healer, or by bugging the fight by dragging the mobs outside commander's aoe range. Every other boss can be easily 1-shot by a group in all questing gear. That's why.

I'm sure not all of you are getting these bugs, but my group seems to be hitting them all. http://i.imgur.com/yXOg9.jpg (btw, I only got half the group in that screenshot - there were more that had already gone past my screen.
Tried it again today, we killed it in a couple of attempts with the same people. It didn't seem buggy this time around, so I'm wondering if it was just that particular instance.

No. Our healer had maybe three days worth of PVP gear, had 0 trouble with the boss. Ranged spread out over his AE heal, and just nuked everything. No one moved once.
