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?
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

Your comments are duly noted and ignored.
I punch a hobo every time someone says 'it's not a rotation it's a priority list lol'.
A second tome dropped tonight. Now I have to figure out who my (other) favorite Lock on the server is.
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.
i need a reminder to pop doomguard for this fight seriously.
i must do it faster!
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.
Now I just need to find a set that matches my green fire.

Expecting 1 chaos bolt... really?
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?
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?
