I don't see any mention of the burning rakghouls during the Doctor Lorrick fight. Those should be avoided, not DPSed, as they go away when he turns into a rakghoul. However, they do stun.

I note also that the stacks of green goo can be cleansed, which is handy if the melee dps have managed to acquire 14 or something by running through it after him.

Satchel charge cannot be cleansed, but it can be avoided by always standing behind him. Melee dps need not run away so long as they are careful that his back is to them.

Good guide, but Lorrick actually has 3 phases, sort of. When you get him to 50% or so, he stops triggering kolto tanks and a bunch of burning raks drop down from the ceiling and crawl around. They will do heavy damage and CC group members, so they need to be kited/knocked back. They move slowly, and they all die when Lorrick goes into his final (rakghoul) phase, but you really have to avoid them for the time being.

In addition (unless they changed it, haven't run LI in a while), the flame trail that the flaming rakghouls leave should be avoided. Another quick note is that it appears as though the flaming rakghouls also have a predetermined target when they spawn, meaning if they aren't targeting you (seen in target of target screen) then you can ignore them.

Note about LR-5, it was mentioned that OP "believes" incinerate can be cleansed, unless 1.4 brought a change to this (which wasn't mentioned in patch notes) it can be cleansed, though if your tank gets 3 stacks there is a good chance he or she is dead anyway.

Finally a quick note about the final phase on Lorrick, when returning to a wall, if you return to the wall from which you entered, you need to make sure you are on the wall not the door. The door has bugged out before and not prevented you from being knocked back, sending you into the hall and resetting the encounter.

I also noticed the absence of the flaming Rakghoul phase of Lorrick. On top of KB/avoiding the adds, the group must be aware of Lorrick's AoE stun, leap, Ravage combo and interrupt Ravage ASAP.

Its also worth noting with the Rakghoul Medics that they do become uninterruptable once they reach about 30% so stuns should be saved for that point.

Transgenic Sample 7 (the one you skip) hits like a Mack truck and targets randomly when he has the "bleeding eye" debuff. Everyone should stack nearby if you decide to fight him. He has low HP so goes down pretty quick. He occasionally drops the Midnight Rakling and Orosquab egg. I've also seen the egg drop off LR-5 and the Rakling off Sav-Rak.

Transgenic Sample 11 (the bonus boss) is a tank and spank with a periodic movement phase. During that phase everyone needs to kite a series of circles where icicles will fall from the ceiling causing damage and a larger AoE snare. Important that everyone stays away from each other during that phase. He drops a Columi implant.

LR-5's soft enrage has 2 stages. First all of the lava grates will spew lava this is your warning for the horrible soft enrage. Shortly after he will start dropping spheres on the tank at full size. I've yet to see him hard enrage but have tanked him through the soft enrage for about 30 seconds before.

Otherwise that was an excellent guide. Love the diagrams and animations. I'll definitely be referring my guildies to it.
