It really is a basic exercise in threat management. Here's how I did it, being on the Jedi's side:

1. Pull Diago
2. Kill Diago
3. Rest up, apply stims, etc, letting the girls fight it out
4. After you've chilled for a moment, the Jedi should have a reasonable amount of threat. Start hammering the Sith.
5. Profit.

All I did was put corso on passive, use his harpoon to bring a stunned diego out of range. Put corso on agressive and kill diego before he comes out of immune from the jedi stun.

Then, since the jedi can never die, i just hit the sith with a few lasers every 30 seconds as to not pull aggro, and she died.

Pulling Diago isn't really necessary. At least not as GS (probably is as scoundrel so you can avoid the Sith's AoE's while punching the fat man in the face). He's just as much a chump next to the sith/jedi as away from her. You just have to avoid AoEing so as to keep from pulling the force user.

S'How I did it. Only movement Diego got was when I planted an aimed shot into his face and threw him against the wall.

Edit: Used Bowdaar, too, instead of Corso. Don't... really like Corso.

What I did was have bowdaar go into dps mode, turn off his threatening abilities, and burn down Diago while he was still CC'd. Then passive back, heal up and energy up, then send him back in and just used vital shot and flurry of bolts so that I didnt pull the sith off of the jedi, and used my interrupts/stuns/blinds to stop her from healing.

Diago was easy. That was never a problem. For me, the problem was always with 'Kill the Jedi'. Our Jedi just couldn't keep threat and first the Jedi would take out Corso, and then take me out pretty quickly. Am I bad or something?

The only way I found to complete this was to just sit watching the fight, interrupt heals when I could, do a little Charged Burst every 30 seconds or so. I died like 5 or 6 times before finally giving in and being reaaaaallllly patient just to get through this.

Cheers.

Step 2: "Pull" Diago away from the Jedi fight (* see below)
Step 3: Kill Diago easily
Step 4: Heal to full, get your energy back, apply stims, etc.
Step 5: Kill Jedi
Step 6: Profit


* "Pulling" is a technique in MMOs where you shoot an enemy then run backwards, forcing it to chase you far from its starting point.

** Diago is a chump when he is not standing within range of the Jedi fight. Once you realize this, the encounter becomes laughably trivial to solo. I set up my Companion behind the bridge you crossed to get to the encounter, and put him in Passive mode. I then went within 30m, shot Diago once, then ran across the bridge. Once he arrived, well out of range of the Jedi fight, I put my Companion back to attack mode and ate Diago's lunch.
yeah ... Once i saw that we could heal up things were fine. That was the first instance where we are allowed to do that. It made sense to pull Diago away from the Jedi ! I did not do all in etc .. until after we finished him off ! After that it was done. It took me a littile longer since I did not have good weapons at the time. Since then I have good dual pistols for me ... BUT Now I need a good blaser for Corso ! Alderain is a bit tough (especially with taking out the three Siths ... BUT that is another thread.)

Hd I paid attention to the fact that we could heal midstream on this one ... It would have saved a bit of concern early on !

BTW... I appreciate the posts here !

Thanks

Thank you for this thread. I'm not generally one for spoilers, but I had head so many horror stories about Lightspring that I was nervous. I picked up the quest at level 26 and really wanted to progress the class storyline but was worried that I would have to level to 30+ to get it done or call in friends.

Pulling Diego away made it simple. Completing it in one shot was still a surprise.

I did it with another Smuggler and THAT made it super easy mode, was my 1st try and got it done. Remember if you're stuck you can always ask for help! Someone have a vid of choosing to help the Sith and kill the Jedi? I know someone here did, I saw it last week I think, wants to show a friend.
