Mind you i have yet to do the hard mode of cure ground, i simply refuse till i have full sets of faction STF and Omega ground sets. Omega really helps when you run a sci medic with the cloaking field to help loose long range agro and res a team mate(not perfect and the gun is a decent PDW with expose). Faction sets help with Sheilds/Health which do not conflict eith the CD of the same ground device. What also helps is if any Engi in the group has the kit with combat supplies just for emergency suplies in case the teams round out, wants to conserve, or in case some one didn't bring any and no one has enough to share.
Stupid hot shot noobs who hardly have experiance of this fight who got lucky in a previous run where every one cqc him and succeded will jump into the medic tanking like a moron and cuase him to close range AOE so specifily watch for that. So scream at the medic tank to run if that happens please. Also try to set a contingancy plan for if the medic tank dies/assim. An orian/vulcan with suduce/mind meld will help with assim tanks with hitting armec who will usually target the assim player chasing them away from the corpse point somtimes.
The classic STF boss trick is praying to whatever religin/deity/being/idol/ingeneral that someone brought a TR116 helps just a tiny little bit but the proc secces is a llot less than the XII set piece drop rate before it was bumped up.
Not just noobs, but epic players in their own minds who love to do that..rofl.. Don't worry about doing Cure Elite without the MACO/Omega sets. We did it just fine, repeatedly, using the old emblem gear and got the optional without bypassing all the mobs physically possible and only hitting only the turrets/workers. The sets are nice, but definitely not a "must have" for this one.
Would also add on the conservative side.. no plasma grenades, it can cause him to start wandering around and after he moves he normally targets turrets/mortars/shield and medical gens and then his aoe chain goes thru all the toys and the tank has to chase after him and it can get ugly fast. If you have to play with toys, toss smoke/photon grenades.
They need that klinks voice when you enter the public que for this... "I hope pain is something you enjoy"
Altho, if you are a medic this is great way to keep up your skills cause pugs are tougher than the mobs
