Upon discovering any world boss in the revised Western Ice Shelf of Ilum, you will receive mission [AREA] Combat Specimen (not sure if equivalent for Republic). The mission states that you have to kill Gravak'k, Surgok'k, and Xenoanalyst II in an ops group of 8-16.

Gravak'k is located in the northwest cave of the revised Ilum area, Surgok'k is located in the northeast cave, and Xenoanalyst II is presumed to be on the Grey Secant after using the teleport in the northernmost area.

http://www.twitch.tv/xgearbox/b/366673511 (4:42 for Surgok'k, 12:25 for Gravak'k)
(Special thanks to all in the ops group)

There is no player limit like Dreadtooth. You can have 24 players and steamroll content.

Gravak'k does massive knockback to the tank, does burst raid damage periodically, and drops circles. It has ~2mil health. Drops 2x Black Hole gear, one level 50 purple gear, and you may be rewarded Gree Data Cores which grant 630 rep (for subs).

Surgok'k applies increase damage stacks (tank swap), spawns adds, and deals raid-wide DoTs that require cleansing. It also has ~2mil health. Drops 2x Black Hole gear, one level 50 purple gear, and you may be rewarded Gree Data Cores which grant 630 rep (for subs).

Information about Xenoanalyst II will hopefully be provided once players start reaching Newcomer reputation.

EDIT: Xenoanalyst II is confirmed on the Grey Secant but is an operations boss instead of a world boss. You will be in your own instance when doing this fight.

EDIT 2: Dulfy's guides on the world bosses and operations boss are much better than what I've written above.

Thanks for quick and informative post. We were just waiting for Gravak'k to spawn, and weren't sure if there was a means to summon him or not.

What gear requirement for them?
Is it Rakata, similar to Dreadtooth/Nightmare Pilgrim?
Standard signature, with no creative effort on my part.

Are you sure on the respawn timer. We have been camped at one of the caves for over 1.5 hrs now and still no spawn.

Sorry, I posted that too early; it should be 2 hours like other world bosses.

It is 2 hours on the dot (keep in mind NP and DT are 30 minutes now).

TIL you should only attempt with 16man since only 16 rep tokens drop. Didn't spend too much time trying to figure out which ops members didn't get them, but it was not the first 16 people in the raid that got them.
