We had a strange issue with this guy last night.

His last phase portal phase (Sorry we never read any guides don't know proper names, we had a blast stumbling through). Were you have to what we thought was retrieve the Knowledge Pyramids return to the real world and place them on the alters. Anyway it seemed that when ever we tried to retrieve these items, the boss would just reset himself. Back to 100% our pyramids disappeared and us standing there looking like chumps.

Anyone else experience this or know how to avoid it happening.

We were stumbling through this last night also. I'm not sure how long the other phases took you, so it COULD be an "enrage/reset" mechanic... we did see him reset once, the first time we got to the last phase and THOUGHT there were supposed to get two of the pyramids to put on the tables, but couldn't find a pyramid. SO there is a timer for reset, just not sure if it's limited to the final phase, or if it's cumulative from the start of the encounter.

What we did in the last phase:

Send 7 players into the yellow portal, and 1 player (an assassin tank) into the blue portal. The tank ran to pick up the Pyramid, and used Force Speed to get back to the portal (you take a nasty DoT while you hold the pyramid)... once out of the blue portal, one of the healers on the yellow side would exit and heal the tank while he placed the pyramid on either the left or the right table. (You have to coordinate between teams... if you place the pyramid on the left table, a yellow circle will appear on the ground, on the left side in the yellow-side-portal that if the boss is standing in it will drop the immunity. It only lasts a short time however, so you have to very quickly send someone back into the blue portal to grab the pyramid, because when the bosses immunity comes back, the pyramid will respawn and you have to rinse/repeat. We had a couple pug dps with us, so our dps wasn't all that great, but we did down him in 3 cycles of the Pyramid.

I imagine a Sorc healer could quite easily handle the pyramid duty, with force speed and the ability to self heal.

IIRC, this is listed under "known issues". I think you have to have the boss taunted or he will reset.
