Thank you Tabana :)

This is definitely the hardest I've done yet. Nothing comes even CLOSE. It takes "perfect execution" to whole new levels. Every tantrum must be absorbed with TWO intervenes. Very few mistakes can be made here, perhaps one Tantrum with just one Intervene is possible, but anything more than that and you're probably dead. At least with 394 average ilvl, which is what I had here. A good tip is to use Last Stand before intervene in situations where you know you can't get a new pet out in time to absorb back to back with the first one; the best example of this is probably the first Tantrum after you kill the heart, since you will have adds to take care of. If you notice at 2:04, I had 115k hp after the tantrum. My pet had about 55k more hp due to Last Stand, which increases the absorb on Intervene by about 27.5k. Without Last Stand, I would only have had 87k or 88k.
If you get any XM-024 Pummellers you will want to kill those and just let XT eat the Scrapbots, he's on full health at that time anyway. If there are no pummelers, kill the XE-321 Boombots and any surviving XS-013 Scrapbots to start dps on XT sooner.

The two things that make this ridiculously hard are that pets spawn with 7k HP, and you MUST wait for your pet to get to its real hp before intervening, or you will only absorb around 3.6k (Intervene absorbs half your pets health until a direct hit has been taken or 10 seconds have passed). The second thing is Life Sparks. These will make your life miserable. Bad timing on Searing Light debuff and Tantrum will WIPE you, unless you pull off a miracle. If you are hit in melee by a spark, it counts as a direct hit, and your intervene is gone. Bam, dead. If you have to summon a new pet when the spark spawns, and you can't get it away fast enough, pet gets oneshot. Bam, dead. You need to have PERFECT intervenes or you won't make it, as well as maximizing your dps. I was 23 seconds from the enrage when I killed him this try, my second best try was 10% with 30 seconds left... I realized I needed to push dps more, even in the normal phase before killing the heart, and the enrage became the easy part of the encounter (that should say a lot I think). I said a few days ago that Firefighter was the most satisfying solo kill I had had, well, multiply the difficulty and satisfaction by 100 and the number of tries by about 10.

This is the world first hunter solo kill of XT hardmode (Heartbreaker).
