@ littlemonstr "someone help! i just cannot do this quest and i so need to get past it, the mobs are just so tough!"

You're an inquisitor, you're supposed to be clever and resourceful. Launch them off the cliff using Overload! You may have to pull them back a ways and use line of sight to gather them where you want them first.

After Defeating Khem Val I decided to explore a little. I jumped down to the area below, there are some kor slugs down there, one is elite but easily kill-able (only dropped a green). Nothing really cool though :(

Here's little tip:
On the way to the Kem, there are some big groups and tough droids, I was able to deal with them by luring them on the ledge, near start of area and then used Overload to knocked them down :)

I found the next quest to be Go to Dromund Kaas. Just a small quest, then onto Onward to Dromuns Kaas.

Note that the quest list above is missing 'Crush Your Rivals (Bonus)' - Defeat Rival Acolytes: X/12

When you fight the beast at the end, a tip that might help is that it takes 3-4 times more damage when it's stunned. One of Khem's powers will automatically stun the beast and this is when you unleash your high damage powers! Don't forget to use electrocute during the fight for another 4 seconds of massive damage.

I had the advantage of this being my second character, so I was able to gift my current character with a rather beastly vibroblade. That coupled with making sure I bought improved the rest of my gear I was able to do this fairly easily at level 9.

I agree with the Shock - Electrocute - Lightning cycle, worked pretty well. Threw in a few thrashes and regular saber strikes while recharging timers or force.

This quest gives you your first companion, Khem Val. However, before you can get to him, you'll need to get through some powerful mobs. I'd recommend luring them in groups, hiding behind a pillar, and using your Overload ability to knock them off of the side into the pit below Khem Val. It's about the easiest way to do this quest without other people grouped up with you.

ye too high level on the mobs here.
overload over the edge works perfect for the droids.
khem is harder though, just gotta use everything u have to win. medpac, recklessness, electrocute.

I was able to complete it at level 9 but it was a bit tough. He's immune to Overload, so Open with Force lightning to slow him, Then Electrocute/Shock and wail on him. Burn Lightning then shock when they are off CD. Repeat process, profit. Using this rotation I was able to finish him fairly quickly with half my hp left and didn't have to burn a Medpac. Good luck.

I agree that this mission feels abnormally tough compared to the other leveled content that came before it. Treat this mission as if it were level 12 or 13. I would suggest pairing up with a Sith Warrior to help you get through the droids and Khem Val. Offer to help the SW with their companion mission to return the favor.

It's possible to get up to him at level 7, but he's too much of a level 10 to get him down. I was able to manage it at level 8 with luck, ended up with 1% HP, but it worked! As stated above, use and abuse the Lightning-Shock-Electrocute rotation to get him down! Also don't be impressed by the elite mob you'll encounter a little further ahead: he's big, he's bad, but he does goes down! Have Fun!
