Also, has anyone else tried to de-enslave the Pit Lord just before the first Doomlord spawns so that it doesn't auto-break during the second felhunter phase? I managed it the first time, but when I used Flames of Xoroth, the pit lord disappeared completely.
In ilvl 490 I would aim to have him at around 15-20% when the 3rd wave spawned.
Also, Jessicka, Evrelia wasnt waving his "epeen" around. He is simply saying it how it is. I am not the greatest warlock in the world, but im decent, and it only took me about 10-15 pulls. Im only ilvl 506 with no 4 set. People saying they have had over 50, 100 pulls or whatever are simply not cut out for MMO's or the warlock class, and I dont mean this in an offensive way, but if you struggle for 50 pulls, you will never be able to do it until you out gear it, because your brain just isnt built do it, (NOTE IM NOT CALLING ANYONE STUPID), your just not so great at the game, and are probably better than others in many other areas/games!
They should add a on/off switch for a nerf (like DS/ICC), if you kill it without the nerf you get a feat of strenght, to show to people you are not a terrible warlock, but if you need the nerf, you get your green fire, (Yes, bad players should be allowed it too), but you dont get the prestige of knowing your class.
If you actually read the whole of my post and think about it, I think any rational person would agree its a good approach?
I just completed it on my brother's warlock who has 481 ilevel as destruction (no 4set), killed the boss during the 2nd Fel Imp summoning.
Really is as simple as FnB Immo + RoF on the imps just once and spamming chaosbolt back to back on the boss, during 2nd imp summoning, do the same but with shadowburn.
At the very beginning of the fight, use the pitlord to stun the boss before he casts curse of ultimate doom (if you dispel agony/seed, he will cast that again, before casting doom, so just keep dispelling & stunning) but start casting a chaosbolt before you use the stun. This means you get to fire out 2 (or 3 under backdraft) chaosbolts at +100% damage.
For the tactic to work, where you abuse the imps to generate nigh infinite embers, you must have 1) Imp sacrificed for dispels, 2) Siphon Life glyphed and 3) Soul Leech talented.
Siphon life will heal you while your immolate is ticking on the imps, Soul Leech will keep you bubbled with all the chaosbolts you will be firing out.
Not once did I use the Pit Lord to dispel me, just used the imp's spell on CD, another thing to note is that after the boss casts cataclysm, he won't do so for about another minute or so, your Pit Lord's stun is on a 20-ish second cooldown, so use that whenever you can!
Don't forget to use the Pit Lord's felflame breath on the boss too, this adds another 25k-ish DPS.
For Felhunters, make sure you have darksoul ready, use pitlord to stuncharge the first one & felflame on them if you can too, chaosbolt it down, finish with shadowburn, havoc the 2nd felhunter and chaosbolt the 3rd, if the felhunters dispel your enslave demon, shadowfury the felhunters AND the pitlord, pop sacrificial pact & unending resolve, finish the felhunters and re-enslave the pitlord.
When you have enslaved the pitlord again, use soulshatter or demonic gateway and the boss will not cast chaosbolts, in fact, use demonic gateway whenever possible, the boss will rarely if ever manage to cast a chaosbolt on you at all during the entire encounter (making the management of a demonic portal unnecessary).

Out of curiosity, should I be using the pit lord mostly to kill the imps, or is it more efficient to down them all with its help?
That's why you need me.... Need someone to punish you for your sins.
Just lost on the latest try because I wasn't paying attention and my circle had de-spawned. I was doing everything else right, too D=
Also... as a thought. Would it be an idea to get both Doomlord up and on the pit lord, then pull them down to the stairs so that the boss then stops targeting me, cleanse the doom curse with a potion, kill both Doomlords, then go back up and fight against the boss and the imp swarms? Or would it not be worth the effort?
The Doom Lords have like 8 million health, it's really not worth killing them; you can let the Pit Lord build up some threat and have him tank one while you Banish the other.
Cheers for all the help, I'm going to have a few bashes at it. Don't hold your breath, though, it may be several hours... if at all XD
Hilariously, just died at 22%. Had to use the potion and heal my pit lord. What killed me?
Pit lord came out of enslave -_-
After being Medieve the Uberpally for many years, finally shelved in favor of Belledanna, the Uberlock!!! (patent pending)
-Unretired as of the launch of 6.0! Currently guild shopping. Need a good Warlock? I need a good home!
So is anyone else insanely pissed that anyone can loot the Sealed Tome and sell i ton the AH besides warlocks?? Such a stupid idea from blizzard.
Only warlocks can loot it. Otherwise any other class could take it and hold us to ransom. But if a warlock gets another dropped, then what else could they do with it other than to sell it to warlocks who want the green fire but not have the time to camp rares.
Before you say it, YES it's expensive now. But it'll be a lot, lot less expensive in a few months. Look at brawler invites.
