How am I a lvl 31 and not able to kill the sand demon?

I mean I get that he's a 27 elite but the quest is scaled to a level 27. Am I just really bad at the game? I've never had a problem with story quests before.

Well the SW/JK stories (i think that's what you are - i think those are the only classes that fight the demon) are harder than the rest. That being said, they only get harder. It wouldn't hurt to read up on strats, use a healing pet, kite him when you get low etc

Yea I'm a DPS sentinel. Like I've had close calls with bosses for sure but I was always able to win. I can't seem to find any advice online

I think the point is to not fight him so "failing" the conversation results in a tough fight.

My advice is to use kira and get agro on the demon, use your cooldowns (rebuke, saber ward) while you do some damage to him. once you're out of cooldowns and at half health or so just keep him slowed and run in circles while saber thowing him - kira will kill him the rest of the way

I was a level 29 Juggernaut when I fought him, but tank spec, and using Quinn. So I was able to kill him. Why not just ask a guild mate if you are in one, or ask in general for someone to just help you real fast.

I always go out of my way to help people for some reason, maybe you will find someone like me.

Naw dude, it isnt you, that Sand Demon is hard. The Sith Warrior class missions get harder.....

Use call on the force, your 20min cd that gets you some free healing and resets cd on saber ward.

Do this:
1. Enter fight.
2. Activate saber ward.
3. After saber ward has run it's course pop call on the force. This resets saber ward.
4. Use saber ward again.
5. Use the force stasis (no point not doing this as you do dmg and stun the opponent).
6. Profit.

Also like someone said already, use your poo... eh, ship droid to heal. If you geared him abit he is not as bad as people think at healing. Don't forget to activate his medwatch ability, it makes him heal better.

And do not forget to pop a potion, eh medpack when you're health drops lower.


I play a tank specced jedi guardian though so I dunno what specific tricks the sentinel might have, but just use the general stuff mixed in there and you should be fine. Good luck, and may the force be with you!

Learn to play your class better, OP. I did it first time with Vette as combat marauder.
