I refuse to believe Valis is beatable at level 24. I have reasonable gear, and know my damage rotation. This is not the first time I've encountered a quest that was much harder than it claimed to be. What is Bioware thinking with this? His AOE and Direct Shock damage does entirely too much damage.

If someone has beat him at level 24, please tell me what you've done.

Doesn´t help, i know -but i had no issue killing him with my Guardian and Kira as Companion.

Be sure her saber ward is ready.
Let her jump in first with saber ward -wait a moment so it gives you some time for damage till you get the aggro.
If she gets too low on health taunt him.
Pop saber ward.
Pop Call on the Force.
Pop Saber Ward again.
Take a medpack.
Force stasis and Force kick to interrupt his supermoves.
Use Warding Call if specced Defense.

Almost all endbosses are a piece of cake like that.
And later you have even more interrupts.
No need to dump difficulty down.

If it still doesn´t work it might be a gear issue.

I had the Level 20 PvP set at that point+earpiece+both Implants on me and Kira and the level 24 PvP weapons.
You can also buy Relics at the light site vendor.

Dude, you are awesome, I used those tips and beat him. I had tried at least a dozen times before. The most important trick is using force kick and stasis. I used stasis on him and it worked 100%, he stayed still and didn't move for like 5 whole seconds, gave me plenty of time to do a lot of damage.

I beat him at 24 what are you talking about?

Also, make sure to put your back to a crate/wall so he can't knock you back. There is one to his right.

Everyone forgets interrupts.

PS: You'll need them on later planets. Stuff gets a lot harder.
