Seeing as this STF is much harder, at least on Elite, than the others, requiring craziness like proper team healing for PvE content, are the rewards going to be extra-shiny? If not, I see this STF getting neglected due to it's difficulty, which would really be a shame.
The last one though has been harder than with my sci on an escort. We had no sci and no one to control the boss moves, so she's been able to run quicly toward players to get closer than 5km and to use her isometric charge. Some of our pugs never got it, two of them were constantly dying because of that and it took us 20 minutes to slowly kill her. The problem isn't the iso charge, it's people not reading team chat and having no sense of team play. Altough i wouldn't be sad if she had another special attack, let's say a strong plasma lotus (similar to the 1000-day veteran ship one). Something we can resist at least.
It's been doable with only one escort in our team but it took time. I think the queen's ship souldn't be allowed to move that fast. It's not easy for a galor not to get in the dangerous zone so slower ships will obviously get into trouble.
Is there a buff icon or something that telegraphs the Queen's 5km death aura? If so I keep missing it.
I found that avoiding her death aura (staying outside of 5km) and when it's fired, diving inside of 5km, seemed to work fairly well and I didn't die as quickly or as often, until the next death aura which I couldn't anticipate.
Fun fight, but awfully powerful abilities, nearly every one was a one-shot. A teammate was hit for over 700,000 damage
