mfw 50+ kills and no drop.
I guess I could buy it, but 50k for a poorly done green fire color doesn't seem worth it.
Keeping the Doom Lords in CC is needless complexity at its best. Seriously I killed him on the 5th Imp wave with crap gear and just had them both tanked by the Pit Lord no problem he was at 30-40% hp when the encounter ended no healing required. I seriously think some of you guys would benefit from just doing the mechanics in the simplest and easiest way and then worrying about damage when that's over with.

I found the tome and I thought I'd do it quickly. Obviously quickly and kanrethad don't go together in the same sentence and I really need repairs, not to mention raid starts in 10.
The question is can I continue this quest later, or will I have to farm rares again, and if I can continue, how do I do so and will I have to do the entire dungeon thing again or will I start where I left off?
You'll go back to the final boss when you go back to the Black Temple gates =)
Since everyone else is sharing stories;
487 ilvl with about 40 seconds left
Took the advice I saw above, didn't burn down the imps and instead just let immolation/RoF kill them over time, used the infinite embers to spam chaos bolt while I could and ember tap if I really needed to. Also found that I did MUCH worse trying to get my pit lord to safety, so I took the advice I saw somewhere else (this thread too maybe, or Icyveins) and blew cooldowns the second the first felhunter spawned - used pit lord charge on him and killed him with fireblasts/used havoc chaos bolts to burn the other two down - half the time I kill them before they even use devour magic. This makes the fight substantially easier, as the biggest reason I ever died was juggling chaos bolt + doomguard + pit lord re-enslave + finishing off felhunters + DoTs all at once. Burning down the felhunters in a few seconds removed the danger of the enslave, removed the chaos bolt since he wasn't ready to cast it yet, and allowed me breathing room to use pit lord flame breath on myself to cleanse and "reset" the fight.
I also used the pit lord to tank the first doomguard. I banished it during the second wave of fel hunters, but after that, the pit lord went back to tanking it. I banished the second doom guard.
I ended up buying the potions of purification because I figured I could just take it "slow and steady" that way, but I never ended up using one of them. I found out that surviving is a lot harder than the enrage timer - if you're using charge and breath consistently and don't screw around the DPS timer isn't really that bad. I had a solid 45 or something seconds left and I don't think I was even performing that well (I never play destro...)
Also, it seems Blizzard fixed the "bug" where he kills you even after he's dead - he cleared all my debuffs and healed me to full when he was still around 400k health. I honestly think the way I did it, described above, is the easiest way. I was about to give up, felt like I would never get it down because I always made some stupid mistake, but the kill ended up feeling pretty easy. 99% of the fight is controlling the felhunters.
Given the amount of time I still had left on the timer, I would say this is doable all the way down to 476 or so, which is MSV LFR level, so if you can't get at least that you should probably spend a little bit more time working on your items. If you are absurdly good at warlock this is probably doable down to 470.
After 5 hours of wipes (4 hours yesterday and 1 hour today), I killed the boss today after watching this video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ln1Ju7ee9Xs
Thanks to the player who created this video. After watching I killed the boss after only 2 wipes. The positioning of the portal was crucial to improve my performance, and watch the guy killing the boss with pvp gear gave me new courage to kill with pve gear.
Is there no achievement for killing the boss or complete the chain?

Ghostcrawler is gone, time to celebrate!
As Biruta says, the Gateway position is pretty critical, I got him down about 3 attempts after moving my Gateway more central; I had had it on the right side but found kiting the Felhunters would cause them to turn and dispel the Enslave - now I'm pretty sure they have a 270 degree vision arc because it was getting annoying over just how easily they'd break it as they shuffled for position, especially after one died, but even if they don't, just treat them as if they do. As it was further away from the Imps and where I needed to be to park my Pit Lord, I used my Teleport to get closer to it, then the Attunement Glyph (which kept failing anyway).
So yeah, now to do it Horde side in much worse gear
I assume you gotta farm the tome
Demos self healing is Harvest life which is also the Fury gatherer in this fight, plus demo has more survivability tools then the rest of specs.
