General Ortol glitch?

anybody else get odd glitches from General Ortol in the Cademimu flashpoint (republic)

the strategy was basic, run away from the rockets that are launching fires, but we would catch on fire BEFORE the match started in the hallway, and also we would randomly insta died when we were in the one quadrant that didn't have any fire in it

after about 4 times we got it, but that was a LOT of wasted gear when we were using the correct strategy, the only reason we finally got it was because it no longer glitched. Any idea why this is? Or has anybody else experienced it

This has happened to my group several times, too. Haven't been able to down him yet :/ Hopefully this will get fixed.

My group started to catch fire AFTER we killed the General. Had to hit the control panel at the back of the boss area to stop burning... odd.

glad it isn't just me then

it's a shame though, considering this flashpoint wasn't on the list of bugs that bioware fixed with the patch

Had the burning to death in safe quadrant just now as well, incredibly frustrating. To be precise it seems that if you START taking damage under one rocket and run out it takes upwards 5-10seconds after you run OUT for the game to actually realize this... stood near middle in one quadrant, rocket above me ignited and I was ~2m from the wall in the safe quadrant when I died from the fire stacks which had kept stacking the entire time.

Also, what the hell is up with the graphics for the rockets igniting / fire? It looks like they're glitched and stuck on far distance render. I know MMOs have to make some concessions but please tell me those low res eyesores are not the real thing.

I had this problem. Our group came up with a rather unique solution.

Since he bugs out an goes through the door . 1) Shout "Leeeeeeroy!" 2) Sacrifice a DPS 3) The remaining 3 are in the hallway and just tank and spank. 4) high tail it across the room cause it'll still be on fire.

Ran into this issue, had to abandon our run, was quite disappointed.

However now I wish I had done the guy above me's idea.

It was fixed so that you can no longer pull General Ortol out of his room. The glitch where you immediately catch fire and die sometimes before even starting the fight was not fixed. Just wasted an hour in this FP before having to give up on this boss.

Also it takes a percentage of your health, so when it glitches a high level friend can't even help you. very annoying.

New glitch. Missiles Fire in all 4 corners so that there is no safe place and the group insta dies.
