I did not need raid format, just needed to do a bit of damage, then she became active and attacked back.

Octa the Collector in 318s, 17571k @55254dps

I kind of feel sorry for her. Though she did manage to deal 230k dmg to my tank. There was never a moment where I was unsure who would win that fight. Absolute joke.

I did have to go into raid format (don't use mercs) to engage. At least, that's how it appears. I tried just grouped, weapons dealt no damage. Gathered in raid, engaged, 5 minutes later she's very dead.
Able to be engaged

Just solo'ed him today with only a healer merc with me. I was not in a raid format. He seemed to be pulling in mobs as others have posted but out of the 6-7 he sucked in, only 1 popped back out to fight me. Dropped mantle, plate gauntlets, loop of cruel and satin gloves for me.

4800 AC warrior max shielding. High hit of 5.2 defensive, 8.8 non defensive. Puts this dude closer to 10k hitter than 8k.

Dangerous Roamer...non agro, but 'fixes' mobs you're fighting...and when you're fighting mobs with as many hps as the cog marauders have...its pretty annoying. He walked up over the Cog Marauder , sucked the Marauder into him (so target vanishes) then it announces 'all fixed' and target reappears at 100% and angry

I haven't been able to spot any emote or /say message from Octa the marks the moment he gets 'upgraded', I only spot the messages saying he Will be upgraded shortly:
[Thu May 07 23:11:20 2009] Octa the Collector says 'Collecting A large systems mender. Adding recovered parts to this unit. Acquired upgrades will be functional shortly.'

I'm trying to find how long before the upgrades take effect, and to see from the parse exactly what they do.

OK, so far from what we can gather ...

Hits for 4300 max under defensive
Hits for 7900 max without defensive
AE Ramps
6.4k AE with knockback

Spawns adds called 'A Large Systems <xxxx>' which as they reach him let off the AE?? (not 100% sure about this), from reports couldnt be targeted or hurt ... will double check and post back later.

where xxxx = Trooper, Mechanic, Mender, Reaper

To engage him, you need to have a Raid attack him ... hard to move him from what raid gathered.
