XT-002 Deconstructor strategy Basics:

XT-002 Deconstructor strategy is a basic tank and spank one with adds fighting breaks every 25% health, whenever the XT-002 Deconstructor heart gets exposed.

Not stopping the DPS while on break adds will make XT-002 Deconstructor enter hard mode (red below).

XT-002 Deconstructor main abilities:

Tympanic Tantrum:
XT-002 Deconstructor will deal 10% damage every second to a target and will make close by raiders dazed.

Gravity Bomb (9 seconds delay):
XT-002 Deconstructor will explode a raider and make him pull all nearby raider to kim after 9 seconds, dealing very high damage, which will cause a wipe if goes off in the middle of the group.

Light Bomb (targeted AoE):
XT-002 Deconstructor Will put an AoE around a raider causing AOE damage.

Summon adds:
XT-002 Deconstructor will expose his heart every 25% health and will summon adds

Adds are:
Pummelers (the biggest): need to be picked up by an offtank and kept near the melee group to gradualy be killed by multi targeting abillities. If tank is overwhelmed: assign a DPS to finish them off.

Scapbots (The smallest): Easily killed. If allowed near XT will heal him.

Boombots: Explosive adds, will go off when killed or when reaching XT, where they will hurt the melee badly.
Kill them next to the scrapbots to help finish those.

XT-002 Deconstructor strategy:

XT-002 Deconstructor  strategy step 1:
Pull XT-002 Deconstructor , split your raid into 2 groups: melee and DPS, to help healers cope with Tantrum phases.

XT-002 Deconstructor  strategy step 2:
When a raider gets Gracity Bombed he has 9 seconds to run away from raid so he doesn't kill other raiders. Watch for Light bomb debuffs as well.

XT-002 Deconstructor  strategy step 3:
Every 25% health stop DPS on XT-002 Deconstructor and kill the adds spawned.
If you want to trigger hard mode, kill XT-002 Deconstructor heart at this point.

If not- damage the heart as much as you can before you turn to the adds- when the next phase resumes all damage done to the heart will be incficted on XT-002 (and heart recieves double damage- so save you Cool Downs for this one).

XT-002 Deconstructor  strategy step 4:
After adds are down Go back to step 2.

XT-002 Deconstructor Hard mode:

XT-002 Deconstructor  has a hard mode, making the XT-002 Deconstructor harder, but also offer much better loot.

In order to access XT-002 Deconstructor hard mode, kill XT-002 Deconstructor heart whenever XT-002 Deconstructor loses 25% health and exposes his heart.

At hard mode XT-002 Deconstructor will deal 25% more damage, as well as his health. In addition XT-002 Deconstructor will use static charges to deal AOE damage raid wide (about 1.5K on heroic mode) every 3 seconds. .
