Also 24 (but Sawbones Scoundrel), just finished the fight about a half-hour ago. What you do is put pet on passive, hit Diago with an opener and then a dot if you have one. Turn and run backwards, or walk backwards, shooting and refreshing dot as you go. You want to keep max distance to lure him away. It takes some time, but he will eventually get far enough. When he's at a good distance, have pet attack. The biggest problem I had was interrupting his spam heals - abilities were always on CD, it seemed, and my healer + Corso didn't put out enough DPS. Was a long, slow fight; it like making a sand castle out of pudding.
We've forgotten what it is to be Jedi. So I'm going to do some real Jedi work now, and help someone in trouble rather than talk big concepts and run errands for politicians - Bardan Jusik

This works. I still prefer the pre-nerf harpoon solution but this is a workable approach.

ha ha =)

Didn't even know that this was possible. Well, I'm looking forward to seeing how my hubby's smuggler will handle the situations. Mine killed all the evil people like a true goody-goody =)

This would have improved my Smuggler's Tatooine experience ten thousandfold.

Basically, once you meet the Sith early on, you do what she says, like lying to the Jedi, etc. I'd suggest not using Corso during any of those conversations, as he loses like 100+ (I think 132), affection points every time you make a conversation choice that essentially sides/helps the Sith, not that we should care what he thinks.

You know you're choosing the right conversation options early on when the Sith basically tells you she's gonna have hot and wild sex with you for helping her via fairly blunt innuendo (at least as a female character; but I assume it's the same if you're male), as well as lamenting the fact that you aren't Force Sensitive, as you'd have made an excellent Sith yourself in her eyes. Also, don't take it personally during that one sequence where she follows you to one of Diago's henchmen, and Imperial Troopers lay in wait to ambush you. Just shrug it off and slaughter the troopers, then continue lying to the silly Jedi who had also followed you and gives you a preaching lecture about what a dishonest bad person you are.

When it's all over, and you've left the planet, she'll then send you a mail basically saying when she becomes Emperor (haha), she'll remember what you did for her.

When I pulled Corso out, it became far easier.

barreled into this quest witrh gunslinger at lvl 27 didnt realize it needed some extra attention
to mechanics lol, bowdarr died fast the sith basically 1 shotted me and the wookie lol, came back rezzed bowdarr, killed sith,got 1 shotted again, came back and the jedi and the crime boss dude are slugging it out still lol,

mechanics of a fight aside,my question is this, why should a silver anything my lvl be able to 1 shot me? am ave orange/ blue/ green geared i can see a crit hitting me hard after all silvers are harder , thats a given, but not even a gold my lvl should be able to do that when im at full health, mechanics are one thing but that sith aoe is way over powered for this lvl of a quest

took me a bit to figure out to interrrupt his self heal took me prolly 10 mins to burn him down cause my timing on the interrupts really bot lol

Pulled Diago and died many times. I found that concentrating on the Sith first was a good solution. Diago is a hard fight, the Jedi will not hold threat. The only thing that will save you is interrupts. Every time he goes for Med Scan, hit him with Flash Grenade or Distract power. Even then, settle in for a ten minute burn-fest. Corso or Bowdarr, will not survive, and you only barely will. Hang in there and plan on either grouping or redoing this multiple times.
Sure as I know anything, I know this - they will try again. Maybe on another world, maybe on this very ground swept clean. A year from now, ten? They'll swing back to the belief that they can make people... better. And I do not hold to that. So no more runnin'. I aim to misbehave.

I died once. Then killed the Sith first, THEN Diago. I think I died the first time because Bowdaar concentrated on Diago first and I was too busy healing Bowdaar to remember to have him switch targets.
