    Seriously this is fucking impossible. I just can't get rid of the chaos bolt hit. I watched movies and most of the guys that are pretty much "pro" as they say have to deal only with a fucking chaos bolt.
    Let me post a log from my combat:

    [21:44:47]Kanrethad Ebonlocke says: BEHOLD! I have truly mastered the fel energies of this world! The demonic power I now command... It is indescribable, unlimited, OMNIPOTENT!
    [21:44:53]Kanrethad Ebonlocke says: You think I've gone too far? There is no such thing. The Black Harvest will enslave the most powerful demons, draw on their power, and destroy all who oppose us, in this world, and on Azeroth! Do YOU mean to stop me, little one?
    [21:45:02]Kanrethad Ebonlocke says: I'd like to see you try.
    [21:45:13]Kanrethad Ebonlocke says: Hah. Your feeble attacks are entertaining. Would you like to see one of my new pets?
    [21:45:19]Kanrethad Ebonlocke says: The Annihilan are incredibly destructive creatures. Their sheer strength and power is absolutely unrivaled.
    [21:45:35]Kanrethad Ebonlocke says: WHAT?! Now you've angered me.
    [21:45:37]Kanrethad Ebonlocke says: The clock is ticking...
    [21:45:39]Kanrethad Ebonlocke says: My power is unimaginable!
    [21:45:47]Kanrethad Ebonlocke begins casting a massive [Chaos Bolt]!
    [21:46:16]Kanrethad Ebonlocke says: Twist in agony.
    [21:46:22]Kanrethad Ebonlocke says: If two imps are better than one imp, what's better than two imps? SIXTY IMPS.
    [21:46:47]Kanrethad Ebonlocke says: Pure... CHAOS.
    [21:46:47]Kanrethad Ebonlocke begins casting a massive [Chaos Bolt]!

    That just as a taste for you guys. However I am too pissed at the moment, but for your info I got till the felpups phase and there was another one. Yes 3 Chaos Bolts in less than 5 minutes. Now I can imagine that if you guys have to deal only with 1 CB as some, yes the fight would be much easier.
    The issue is, I can't figure out how to LoS it. I have my portals in the exact same place as shown in most of the videos, but I can't still avoid them. 2 out of 3 CB's are going trough the massive portal frame also trough the damn walls. I even hid myself agains the pilars once just for a test and yes it went trough it. TO be clear, I don't wait from him to releas his CB, I port out before he finishes casting it... yet...
    Can anyone help me with that? Also, as previously asked...is there any way to have a mod show his castbars except pitbull?

    Cheers..

    When I LOSed it, I ported out soon as I saw he was casting it. As far as watching his castbars, I just set him to my focus. I could see everything. I think if you wait until it's just about cast, it's just a case of the spell actual effect and the spell visual effect not lining up -- it looks like you should be LOS, but the spell actual effect has already targeted you. If you LOS sooner it should be a matter of it can't hit you. Others have suggested using Soulshatter right before felpup phase to get his next few casts to target the Pitlord instead of you. I had mixed results with this -- but sometimes, yes, I did get him to cast on the Pitlord instead of me. After that I would try to Soulshatter on cd. You should be able to get two or three total in. Will really help towards the end when you're juggling a lot of stuff.

    Generally, however, I would soak the Chaos Bolts. Ember Tap / Pitlord Heal / Healthstone / whatever I had to do to get to full health, then Sac Pact + Twilight Ward. Or Unending Resolve + Twilight Ward.

    And I did notice that just because it says he's casting a CB, he doesn't always actually cast it, so you don't have to prep for it unless it's actually casting. Plus, doing the fight enough you know exactly when he's going to cast Cataclysm and when he won't -- using Charge as often as possible while still having it up for Cata + felpups is what got me my kill. Time it to interrupt Chaos Bolts if you need to if you somehow get one up with Sac Pact / Unending Resolve on cd.

    Got my tome today. Any achievement for this chain?

    What I did (at ilvl 486) was move the Pit Lord just to the right of the pillar directly behind the big portal. Then as the boss begins to summon them, drop at least 3 Rain of Fire on top of the big portal (from test runs, any less than 3 and the Rain expires just before the 3rd felhunter emerges, at which point it heads straight for your Pit Lord wherever he may be to devour his enslave). Then (by way of macro. Macros make life SO much easier during this encounter) I pop offensive/defensive cds, Chaos Bolt the 1st hound, Havoc the 2nd, then as I Chaos Bolt the 3rd one I have my Pit Lord charge it. Since its Charge is an aoe stun its stuns all 3 hounds for 100% damage. The Chaos Bolt should one shot 2 hounds, and you can then finish the other one with Conflagrates/Incinerates/Shadowburn, and have a few seconds left before the boss uses his Chaos Bolt.

    Okay so, I have now spent a total of 11-12 hours, 2k in repair and probably died over 100 times, but finally.. KANRETHAD IS DEAD! *teabags him* FINALLY ;_;

    Before killing him, I really hated the guys who said "don't nerf, it's meant to be hard" etc.. but honestly, after having finally downed him myself, I agree. The satisfaction of finally getting him down after so much effort is... just.. epic.

    And for you who still struggle, don't give up... I am extremely easily distracted, get easily nervous and stressed and multitasking is my weakest point... but even someone like me did it. If someone like me can do it, ANYONE CAN. Trust me. XD

    *runs around spamming rain of fire while whispering everyone on friends list about it*

    EDIT: Forgot to mention that I did it at iLevel 488, for those who might want to know. :P
    EDIT2: Also forgot to say that a friend of mine gave me a good tip earlier today; if you fear the Pit lord as it goes out of the portal INSTEAD of enslaving it, you get 20 sec (the duration of fear) Extra where you can dps Kanrethad without him doing anything. Just be quick to enslave it as it gets out of the fear, since you can't keep fearing it forever.

    This should help a lot for those who are under geared, but keep in mind that doing so might bug the timer on the curse of ultimate doom. The timer bugged for me and it showed as 10 mins left at some point, I figured "hey, that's cool.. longer than usual" but it stays the same, it's just the duration text that bugs

    Thanks. I got it 2 days ago I think. Using the gateways during that phase was a mistake.

    @Ivvs- If you aren't Los'ed when he fires it off, it will connect regardless.
    Your comments are duly noted and ignored.

    A second tome dropped tonight. Now I have to figure out who my (other) favorite Lock on the server is.

    I had a 3rd drop today. The 2nd one I got went to a guildie, this last one though, hopefully some warlock with shitty luck wants to buy it from me.

    Question: After the second set of phases (2nd doomguard is out), does he only do imps and transitions? I had imp -> cataclysm -> imps (where I died because I expected felhunters).

    Killed it today as Sac Demo. Fun fight. Didn't bother LoSing the Pit Lord for the Fel Hunters, just saved CDs for them and burst them down in a few seconds and re-did my MC on the Pit Lord. Smooth sailing other than that, don't see what the big deal is with people complaining about the difficulty.

    Finally killed him. Heart beating so fast. My last attempt (before this one) I got him down to 5%. I was so angry I went to sleep. I wake up, 1 attempt and boom. He's dead and I have my green fire. Oh man, I'm just so happy right now. After so much heartbreak I finally beat him.

    :*D

    Now I just need to find a set that matches my green fire.

    What? I was getting Chaos Bolts every minute on the dot, fairly sure that's working as intended, if you're expecting less then you're doing it wrong, CB is literally the easiest mechanic to deal with, you're supposed to use sacrificial pact to survive them, which has a 1 minute cooldown and shadow ward, which has a 30s cooldown iirc.

    Expecting 1 chaos bolt... really?

    You're not supposed to get hit by them.

    That's why sac pact is there for , to go aggressive and soak dmg while you zerg boss.

    I honestly think soaking the attack that comes every 1 minute with your 1 minute cooldown makes far more sense then trying to pretend the design intent was to LOS them behind pillars that don't work half the time.

    Sac pact + shadow ward makes them hit for nothing, pissing around with LOS just means lost damage done for absolutely no good reason.

    What are you gaining by LOSing them, bar a longer fight?

    I neither soaked nor LoS'ed them. As long as you use your gateway on cooldown (or nearly on cooldown) no chaos bolt will hit you. He might cast it, but if he does your Pit Lord will eat it. You have to use the gateway to drop aggro before he starts casting though, if you use it during his casting it will likely hit you anyway, as he just continues casting it.


    Different question, out of curiosity: if I cleanse the Fel Fire at the trainer and decide I want it back, do I have to defeat him again or is it just another talk to the trainer?
