Honestly it isn't even about the interrupt, it is about the RNG involved and the reaction time.
You have no idea when Revan will do force lighting, all you know its that he will do it after his first force storm. Since the defensive CDs are only active for a couple seconds, you really have no idea when it is a good idea to pop it other than taking an arbitary (35%) for us and then hope for the best.

If you do survive the first tick of lighting, that is great. You better hope that someone hit that interrupt the moment he/she see a cast bar Revan. Cuz if no one caught that, the next tick will kill the tank and then Revan will switch and immediately kill the next.. and the person after that.

Even if you do manage interrupt it, you better hope there is a 2nd person with an interrupt active for when Revan recast his Force lighting 4 seconds later. Since no one can survive the first tick, Revan will bring someone down before his 2nd cast gets interrupted.

Then if your DPS is good enough, you will bring him to the metor phase and for the rest of the fight is seeing if you can burn him down fast enough to 5% and then can all stop DPS so he doesn't bug out and kill people with the bubble on him.

PvP gear is infact fine for tanking HM's I'm pretty much fullclad pvp tank set and I'm perfectly fine even Tanked op's

39% dmg resistance
26% def
30% shield (Becomes 45% while dark ward's up...and its up alot)
40% absorb

The main things you'd lose in pvp gear is the lil bit of extra endurance and possibly hit. (i'm on 19.5k hp atm)

Back on topic however, He is clearly bugged I got hit for the first tick at 40k. was livable as a sin tank when you wait 10secs after the force storm thing then pop force shroud, and interupt asap.

(Your Next problem though is if he bugs out and becomes immune to everything :P)

The lighting is not random been doing this boss for awhile with a Jugg tank. The first tick of his lighting is instant all the following ones can be interrupted and have to be interrupted.

After he sucks you in he starts to channel force storm. 10 sec after he is done channeling he will do a instant cast lighting. The Jugg tank I run with uses his health increase and 45% damage reducing cd and I shield him with static barrier at 7-8 sec. You then interrupt all the lightings and burn him before he channels another force storm and one shots the tank. But every time I have run this the instant cast lighting he does is always at 10 sec after he has finished channeling force storm.

Some facts about this encounter:

- You need tank with decent gear that can pop his cooldowns to survive one tick of force lightning. Force lightning is casted somewhere between 35% and 30% of Revan's heath. If your tank dies, instant CR him.
- You need instant interrupt on the above mentioned ability so it only ticks once.
- You need very strong DPS that can burn him down from 35% - save your cooldowns for this time, with weak DPS you can't beat Revan.
- That being said, FIGHT IS BUGGED.
- When you "kill" Revan and he pops his shield that makes him immune to all incoming DMG, he still attacks players and one shots them. This should be the end of fight. If this happens to you, just wipe, try again and hope for the best.
- Not sure if the DMG done by force lightning is intended. It is possible that this hard mode encounter just requires good gear (seems unlikely, probably will get nerfed/fixed soon).
- Another minor bug I noticed is that beating him does not award player with codex entry in achievements: epic enemies tab. Conspiracy theory: BioWare intentionally made this fight impossible so people cry less about Revan being roflstomp easy boss?
