    Along with H Horridon, I've also been informed that the green fire messes with people on H Megaera.

    I've busted my ass trying to get my green fire, but I think I might have to concede the fight to Ebonlocke. I've played my lock since BC. Did my hunter quest in vanilla but I can't beat this bastard. Seems insane the guy is this hard for a color change. Congrats to the people that did beat him.

    Have you tried this strategy? It's what worked for me.

    Do you have any other debuffs on you besides the Curse of Ultimate Doom when you use the potion? It will only remove one, so you have to make sure nothing else is on you when you use it. I had the Pit Lord use his flame breath on me just before using it to make sure the potion got rid of the doom curse.
    Ty for the reply

    I have been fully "clean".... However I start to suspect I might have clicked the pre pot in all the madness... So have moved that icon far away. Now I just have to get a few more good goes

    Haven´t played destro in a long time... been Demo since mid cata, so need to learn and force my brain how to improve the dps !

    If you've been playing Demo, do it as Demo. Its really not bad at all for this. The burst AoE HoG can provide when used properly is amazing.

    Yea, I've read and tried several, my ilvl is 481 and I was enjoying thinking that it was just a gear thing lol and then I started seeing the videos of a guy doing it in ilvl 476 so I know its me. Problem I'm having is the same as most I suppose. Fel Hunters eat my face, I never lose my enslave but I cant seem to damage down the hunters fast enough and meanwhile I'm dying or get a CB faceplant because of panic and I tunnel vision on the Fel hunters. Its all me, I own that fact and eventually I'll get it. I just get frustrated thinking that "I should have" been able to do it already.

    i tried at 473 and again at 481, it wasn't until 487 that i was able to kill him. that extra gear let me kill the felhunters fast enough that i was able to bring my pit lord out of hiding to charge kanrethad for the cataclysm.

    So unfortunately it looks like I'm throwing in the towel. I'm traveling right now and at best my ms is 200 averaging 700. I will not have good Internet for seven months. The lag is unbearable, even with addons off and graphics on low. My net randomly goes completely out. It sucks, I've been waiting for this since BC hit. Because of my net I can't raid, I can't PvP, and I can't have green fire. Done.

    Well thats actually encouraging :-) Ty. I'll try gearing up a little more before the next attempt.

    Sad days

    On the upside, this quest will still be there when you have decent connection again, so when you do you'll be able to get green fire at last. yay!

    Finally just killed it myself, attempted it 7 times or so at 492 and decided I'd gear up a bit more for felhunters. Now at 500 ilvl and just spent an hour and a half on it, probably roughly 12 attempts, and got it. Insane challenge for sure, I focused on survival more than damage. Used a purification potion, had to renslave my pit lord twice, and on my kill shot the enslave wore off and he came after me, so I tossed down my RoF on the imps and said a prayer and just started spamming shadowburn. Got him with roughly 10% of my health left and the pit lord about 0.5 seconds away from obliterating me. I agree with other people when they say they don't want it nerfed, it's an awareness check above all else. Gotta keep all the timers in your head and know what's about to happen before it happens, it's all about being proactive, chances are if you have to be reactive even once in the fight you're going to lose.

    I would recommend if you're having issues with the felhunters though, to get some more gear. While yes it's entirely doable below my ilvl, the less you have to rely on rng for good crits to timely eliminate them. As someone else said, you can get past the second wave of felhunters, you can win. It's all a matter of experiencing the final phase with 2 doom guards a couple times and then developing your own personal strategy for how to cope with them. I personally just put them both on my pit lord and keep using my portal to reset aggro on them, when my pit lord got low I'd heal it, since it's percentage based, he heals up quick.

    I've sold a couple already for a nice profit, so they must have increased the droprate... sadly im still unable to kill kanrethad...

    The bolded part is the worst thing you can do fighting this boss. Standing still doing nothing is a better strategy lol. But I know how you feel.

    Which wave of puppies get you? And if they are the ones killing you not the CB then I suggest you use every CD on them, both offensive and defensive. Also, it's usually a good idea to use your gate as soon as he starts summoning them which will make the boss ignore you and go to the Pit Lord which would make him cast the CB on it. If for some reason he started casting the CB on you, then I suggest you "tank" the puppies near a LoS where you can run in while tanking them to avoid being blown up by his CB.

    He uses CB a few seconds after each summon, so to avoid being targeted by them I suggest using your gate after each summon (Wish the exception of the puppy summon, during that use it a second before he starts). That way you should be able to avoid every single CB.

    It's a BRUTAL fight, but the feeling you get after beating him is amazing! So good luck and don't give up, don't panic and take a break every now and then.

    Good Luck!

    You should just let the pit lord tank the doom guards, he should be able to handle it easily
