Has anyone else had problems with the quest "A New Order" on Ilum?

I advance fine threw half the quest np until I reached Shai. I brought down the shield and prepared myself to a solo mission boss fight. I initiate the fight and it goes well to start. Until about 2/3 the threw the fight. All of a sudden my heals on me do "0". With out any heals I just cant kill this guy. Now I notice there are 2-4 debuffs that gets to 6 applications, I am guessing one of those are causing it. I know my companion Mako and my cure ability should be able to drop them but they don't.

I have no clue how to proceed at this point and am wondering what you guys have done or any suggestions.

I killed him by staying out of range so the debuff runs off. I used a tanking companion to take the blows in the beginning so i could nuke him down while not getting the debuff.

As soon as he applied the buff i kept running around so he wouldn't apply more stacks, once they fall off engage him again.

interesting idea... I like it.

I might have to give that a try but I am also thinking about just getting a friend to help at this point. I don't feel like paying another 30k on repairs but thanks again for the info.

yeah i kited him around too and and losed him behind the boxes and whatnot there was, took a while, but was pretty easy that way. Just pure dmg approach got you slaughtered bad.

Yep, I think it took me a couple attempts mostly because I wasn't paying attention to my debuffs (besides, I wasn't expecting a solo boss fight). Once I realized what was happening, kiting solved my issue.

Couldn't do this solo after 11k in repairs. He still applied the buff to me while trying to kite him and it took like 30s to a minute to wear off. In the mean time he was killing Mako. Neither Mako nor my cure's did anything. Had to get a lvl 50 powertech to come and help me finish off a solo elite. Hardest/most bugged fight that I've seen in game yet.

I had some issues on this fight while soloing it as an Arsenal specced Merc. To beat it, I eventually dropped Mako and forced Gault to fight. The additional damage done is what I needed to complete the fight. I still received 6 stacks of the healing debuff, but I was finally able to complete it.

I just completed this today after several tries. Once I had him down to about 20% and had 8 stacks of debuffs on me I just ran around until they wore off and then defeated him pretty easily after that.

Wait wait wait wait wait!

There's class story quests on ilum? After finishing my class questline on the battleship I never did any Ilum quests (because why bother, I'm only interested in PVP at endgame). So there's BH specific quests there?

We don't stop playing because we grow old; we grow old because we stop playing.

I died once, not paying attention (debuffs hurt). All you have to do is fight next to your companion. He spawns right next to him/her and use Rocket Punch (int his casting). I didn't even get to 4 stacks and he died. I was at 95% life with only Vent Heat used. I was also using Mako and I tanked the fight. The fight is a test of interupts and dps.
