Nopada arena - mature mugato
 
Anyone able to to defeat it with anything other than a tac captain specced into melee?

My engineer doesn't stand a chance against it, even with polyalloy weave armor.

Use the Enemy Neutralization kit, deploy your Mines and Bomb, use Fuze Armor to move away from the Mugato. User your Cover Shield like you "oh crap" button.

Or even more easy, search a corner, put your back against it, deploy your Cover Shield, you will be stuck BUT the Mugato can't reach you there, so you can deploy your Mines and Bomb, they will spawn in the other side of your Cover and voila!. Wait a few seconds until your Cover despawns and you're free.

I am an Eng captain and I ended up just kiting it around the arena. My health slowly regened whenI was kiting it...so when I got to 50% I turned, beat on him some more, then ran again when I droped below 25%...was a long fight, but doable.

Ahhh! I ran into this the other day, and stared in disbelief as people told me it wasn't that hard. Then while running it again, I found the cause as to why.

...You're supposed to have help in the arena. The Reman with you at the beginning is supposed to run out with you, and help defeat your foes.
Apparently there's a glitch where he doesn't always go out into the arena with you, leaving you to solo the mugato. (which, while not impossible, is a pain in the keister.)

I was having the same issue, try to circle around it and get flanking damage

Eh? People actually have trouble with this thing? I'm a sci cap and I can easily cut it to ribbons with just a sword.
Then again, I've memorized the sword combos ages ago.

Science captain, beat it without using one heal. Trick is using the combos, it shaves off health real fast.

Probably this. It's not that bad if the NPC is helping.

Ya, I was by myself. I was finally able to beat the mugato.

It turns out that the Mugato's primary attack is pretty slow, so if you circle it fast enough you will avoid the majority of its attacks. I beat it by using a lirpa and endlessly strafed around it while just swinging away. Once I had the technique down it was actually a pretty fun fight.

For the people that have talked about kits and skills, you can't use ANY equipment in the arena. No kit abilities, no captain abilities, nothing but the godforsaken melee weapon. That said, I had no problem on my Tac or Eng. Going through it on my Sci now ... is another story. I've spent an hour and a half trying. I know all the slashy stuff by heart, but I still can't manage it.

I've been skilling up purely as support, which is partly my issue since I have no talents in Weapon Proficiency, which might actually help me. The only thing I can think of that'll get me through the mission (since I don't like skipping) is going back to ESD, using my free respec to give me the extra damage, then going back after the mission and blowing zen on another respec to go back to how I've been levelling >< That's ... irritating to even consider.

Dodging is doing crap all. I still get hit by the DK pound and the omnomnom moves it throws at me. Kiting does EFF ALL since I'm not getting any health regen, while the Mugato is, and those godforsaken plants aren't even pickable (which I distinctly remember them being in every fight). The combos just aren't bringing it down ><
