Into the pit

I tried to get into a group to do it of 3 but it seems like it is single player only. So we were all doing it solo and still in the group and them two died at level 19 and 20 and tried a few times before giving up. I did it at level 22 this time and it was still really hard and my pet died but got it done.

I used dark charge and guard on the pet and he has that skill that stays on forever to give him 100% threat. So I thought even with Dark Charge and guard on he's still generating like 30% more threat I think it was. Anyways in combat he was still getting all the mobs on him so I'm guessing due to my guard he was getting less damage too.

As assassin I have no heals but channel the force (which I think should be available without a pet active) and a med pack for myself. So I knew he was going to die but he didn't go down till all the little mobs and she was down to like 5% health so that was good.

The problem I face with our CC is we only have one useful one in combat and that is whirlwind, but that has a 2 second cast time and the game just has too many interrupts. We have one but it requires stealth and if you use that then it all goes evade and they go back up to full health so it is pointless. The other thing is no stun works on elite mobs so basically the whole class strategy is thrown out of the window for me. The only thing you can do to elites is try to tank them because stealth doesn't work on them either.

I hate the class, I think it is utter ****.

Playing Bounty Hunter I just *********** own everything and can solo Heroic quests with ease :\ Yet most of the Assassin's abilities are made completely useless with elites mobs.

Any ways I've done it and they need to reduce the difficulty of the quest as I've asked a lot of people in game and they all struggled with it. It shouldn't be a requirement for Assassin's to have to use med packs for story quests.

I had issues with this quest too.. I was probably in the 19-21 range when I did it. It took me about 4 attempts before finally completing it as Tank Assassin with Khem Val. If I remember correctly I let Khem tank while I took out the adds as fast as possible. Also use the AOE knockback (forget the name) as much as possible. The stun alone helps a bit as well as clearing the aggro off of you or Khem for a few seconds. I also have BioChem as my crew skill so I was using a purple medpack that healed both me and Khem at the same time.

It definitely is a difficult fight for the level range you can get it. The key is controlling the adds.

All that keeps happening is the Mutant dies as I cannot heal him and then everything goes on me and I die. Speaking to other people they've had problems as my class too. I would come back in a few more levels but the quest log limit is too low and mine is full so I need to get it out the way.

Wondering if any Assassins had any tactics?
Suck it up and use the droid. It's the only way without bringing a friend or being seriously over leveled.

sounds like a L2P experience. I had zero trouble doing this quest as well. Take a look at your strategy or your gear.

My suggestion is sit back.. study your abilities. Your spec. Adjust your play style accordingly.

FYI -- Madness is better for leveling.

This one kicked my butt a few times. It ended up being easy once I actually thought about what to do.

Let Khem tank, and keep him on the boss. You're on heals and add duty. Honestly, you probably don't even need to dps the boss at all - just keep Khem up. When the adds come, take them out asap. Once they're gone, it's back to healing Khem, and dpsing the boss when you can.

You don't need any stims or medpacks. Just focus on healing Khem, and taking out the adds, and it'll be easy.

This is as a sorc. I did it at level 19.

I've tried 7, count 'em, 7 times now as a lvl 20 sorcerer. Maybe i'm a terrible mouse clicker, but i don't feel like i'm taking out the little ones as fast as i need to. seems like the initial entrance to the cave is the easiest attempt, as the brood queen lady girl doesn't have a swarm of broodlings around her yet. After medical droid revival, she starts with a few hanging out in the pen with her, which is awfully annoying. can't seem to get a leg up on this one, and i just threw some things across the room which means i'm too annoyed to play. last quest to move on, and now i just feel stuck.

I almost got it without any stim as a lvl 19 assassin (because I had none in my backpack ).
I tried with the robot but the healing it does is minimal.

Stop answering that it's an easy quest as Sorceror... it makes me sad about my class!
