I think it's fuckin stupid that they chose to go this route.
has there been any confirmation on the tome dropping from trash mobs? because it seems like its only dropping from rare spawns.
So far, only see it dropping from Haywire and Ku'Lai.

Not to ask stupid questions but I've been farming all day and I want to make sure I'm not disqualifying myself from getting the drop.
Can you be in a raid group for killing the rares and still receive the tome?
I have issues looting the rares and have to relog to see the loot 90% of the time. Could this be an issue? Everyone else in the raid seems to get the Ritual Stones and after relogging all I get is the Valor tome.
Sorry if these sound stupid but for my own sanity I just want to make sure I'm not screwing myself over for the rest of the grind.
To clarify a few things. The tomes only drop off the current 5 rare spawns. Low drop rate. DO NOT have to be in a raid. You just need to faction tag it. Everyone has their own separate loot tables so it's up to your own RNG. It seems that currently only warlocks can loot the tome but it can be sold and traded. I was able to put mine on the AH. Farmed for a good 4 hours and had close to 30+ kills I wanna say. Had a rare spawn raid of 20 or so people, 3 warlocks got tomes before me, one tome per warlock at a time. Good luck hunting! It's really not that bad to farm.

What are you guys using to find the rare spawns? Is NPCScan any good? Or anything else I should know about that addon to tweak it?

5 rare spawns atm. Join a rare spawn raid or group and have everyone spread out to all 5 spawn locations. When the mobs body disappears expect a respawn in 1-5 minutes. If they call out that the mob has despawned that should give you enough time to head that way.

Am I missing something? I'm destruction and see only orange.

People will always complain. Even when you change the thing they're complaining about, they'll start to complain how everything was better before the change.
Seriously, he has been absolutely wrecking my shit for the past probably 8 hours. I'm not some well-geared warlock or anything, but I find it difficult to believe Blizzard would intentionally put a stop-gap that requires Heroic-Raid gear to overcome, in addition to the most complicated encounter I've even seen in the game (and I've seen a lot of stuff, my friend).
I don't feel proud admitting this, but... I would happily exploit any kind of flaw in the encounter to down this guy. I absolutely want the Green-Fire, but after spending thousands in repairs-bills and so many hours, I just want to be able to beat this son of a bitch and put the whole ordeal behind me.
Any suggestions? Tips? Advice?

Well I havent done him myself yet, but this vid might be of some help?
this is freaking ridiculous, I've killed all 5 rare spawns at least 10 times each and nothing.....F*%$K YOU BLIZZ!!!
I feel your pain, Claymore. I've been stuck on him for a while now as well. Best I've managed to do is get him down to about 80%. I'm running the fight as destruction due to the massive self-healing of Ember Tap and the overflow of Embers when he summons the imps. Best I can tell you is burst him down as much as possible at the start before the Pit Lord comes out and as soon as he comes, enslave him. Use his charge to interrupt Cataclysm and Chaos Bolt whenever you can and use the fire breath when the imps come out. You've got to make sure you're not getting tunnel vision though, cause that's what has been killing me. I start focusing too much on my damage output or healing myself that I don't see when he's casting something, usually the Chaos Bolt, and I get insta-gibbed. It's supposed to be a very long and extremely difficult fight, so just keep at it and you'll get it eventually. I'm hoping to finish the fight tomorrow myself.
