I'm a level 16 Jedi Guardian and I keep getting my ***** kicked by him. Suggestions? Strategies? Which companion?

I was lvl 15 and had no problems, dont forget to use Force sweep and master strike whenever they are available. If you are still having problems try to let Kira leap in first and you second. You may have to use a medpac but after that you are fine

I am level 17 and he is nuking my butt every time, I've tried over a dozen times and nada. All skills trained, sending Kira in first (do I have something to heal her? Not that I can find). Watching the videos it seems that most characters cool downs are way faster than mine, so much so that I thought they were in fast motion. He is damaging my calm. At suggestions would be helpful. This is my first game but I've been working at it for months now, I keep becoming frustrated and start over with a new character. I WILL conquer this!!

Is it possible for you to record a video of you fighting him and upload it, so we can see what you're doing? How much HP do you get him down to before you die?

What gear are you using?

Don't have appropriate video software at this time. Aai is a lvl 17 Guardian, strength 208, Endurance 204, Presence 106. Currently Health 2505, Armor Rating 1426, Damage Reduction 31.35, Defense Choice 5.00%

Gear:

Peacekeepers Headgear
Reinforced Battle Chestguard
Gamorrean Dense Gauntlets
Echani Dense Girdle
Jedi Knight's Leggings
Echani Riveted Boots
Hardened Terenthian Bracers
Was Sentinel's Lightsaber but bought the 14 Coruscant Commendation one (forget the name) just a while ago, haven't given it another go.

Going in with Kira, have tried working together with her, and with her going in first. If I send her first, at what point should I jump in, and with what? Should I try T-7? Also don't know the answer to how much HP for Tarnis.

200 End/Str seems slightly low for 17. I think I had in the 230 range, which does make a difference when fighting a boss like Tarnis. Get level 16-17 green Str/End items in all slots that you can from the GTN, and outfit Kira too in Wil/End items. If you've got orange modifiable weapons/armor (green for Kira), make sure you put in level 15-17 armoring, mod, and enhancement upgrades. Buy an Endurance stim from the stim vendor (+16?) and use it before the fight, it lasts 1 hr. Gear really makes a difference.

Your shield chance shouldn't be 5%. Make sure you have a shield (with Str) in your off-hand, not focus or generator. Shield. And turn on Soresu form.

Tanking, as far as I understand it. It does seem that I need better gear, will do heroics and see what I can pick up, and check GTN. And I'm up to twenty unsuccessful tries, now!
