Rockwell help

I tried alpha rockwell today on a private server with my tribemembers and horribly failed. Does anyone have some tips to defeat him? 

Our max wild level is 180, we have increased breeding( x100 hatching and maturation), access to the dominus rex from ark additions, s+ and fix it dino mod. 

Should someone stay behind to shoot the orbs he fires?

Many thanks in advance

A good strat that my tribe has used is hp stegos with veggie cakes, the riders have shotguns. Spread out around the arena and shoot the tenticals as they pop up, and avoid the shocking tenticles. Bring flak and med brews and a couple light pets.

Rock drakes and stegos are a good idea to bring for players, and several damage-dealer dinos such as megalosaurus or spinosaurus for attacking rockwell while he's down.

Players should have high-power shotguns and a lot of ammo. Run around shooting tentacles, attack rockwell, repeat. If you shoot the energy orbs, they'll explode before they get to you. That's the only good way to deal with them as they track you.

Stegos are good for their tankiness, but they tend to move rather slow which could be a problem when electric tentacles pop up. Keep running around shooting tentacles like you would on a drake.

Basically, players should not be primarily focused on Rockwell himself. You absolutely have to kill the tentacles, energy orbs, Nameless, and Reapers. Aim at Rockwell only when he's down otherwise it's pointless.

And probably should note: Even if you want to primarily use Domination Rex as part of your group, you need a few people to focus on the orbs as well (tl;dr: Survivors with weapon on Rock Drake, Stegos to tank the hits). If the survivor dies, the dinos inside are as good as dead: Another simple but crucial reminder that you aren't facing just any boss you can maul down immediately. Orb will hit survivors, even if the dino they are riding on are large, and are very fatal to even the naked survivor with high HP.

My recommendations are as follows if you truly want to use those Rex:
4 or 6 Ridden Drakes or Stego with survivor carrying shotguns and pistols (and spare armors), 2 Domination Rex (Damage dealer) to deal with the riff raffs, 4 or 6 Light pets (if you need to call the Rex to deal with the massive Nameless and Reaper Kings).

The survivors riding the creatures deals with the tentacles and the orbs. Whoever is on Rex Duty (NOT on it) must whistle and attack where required... and make sure that theres no tentacle where it is, as it can literally stop them from attacking (even if they have a high HP on a boosted mod server) sometimes if the tentacle decides to hurl an electric wave, AND he or she must have a light pet with charge on at all times, because even a Domination Rex can get dominated by a group of Reaper Kings. (yes, pun intended, gtfo)
