I got mine a week ago, and it took me ALOT of tries. I was at ilvl 493 when I did it, and the only reason I got through was Purification potion.
When I got him to 20%, Imps spawned and I thought I was done. Then I just kept Shadowburning him while keeping RoF up on Imps to have infinite Embers to SB and Ember Tap to heal the shit out of myself.
Was down to 18 HP at one point, so quite satisfied when he died
Most hectic sub 20% fight I've ever had.
Truly amazing fight, and I would LOVE to be able to fight him again.
They should make us able to queue for the Scenario all the time, once it's cleared imo.
I don't know if this has been said in any of the 90+ pages of the forum so sorry for the possible broken record. I wish they would add an effect to pets. Imps with green fire. Fel void walker. Etc. don't get me wrong. I feel green fire is its own reward. Just saying it would look great.
I don't mind a passing remark about it, but continued discussion about sharing accounts will eventually lead to someone stepping over the line of what we allow on this forum or what is wise to do in general (like asking someone on this forum to do the quest for them). I'd rather we change the subject and prevent that.
I highly doubt they intend for you to farm the looting stage.
I just did it in 10 tries following this guide and watched the video once. The fight really just takes some time getting used to (kinda like some raid bosses with specific mechanics you aren't used to). I used 275 int food (Great Pandaren Banquet because they are so easy to come by), int flask and int pot. Actually the try I got him I was so tunnel visioned I didn't pop a second pot. Went in a destruction mastery stacked and I did not have to pop a dispel pot, I think I was 2-3 minutes left, I didn't really check it that much (Would've been funny if I only didn't get it because I did not pop that)
My itemlevel is 494, not amazingly good but it is enough to not even use a pot if you do it correctly.
(It feels amazing getting gold challenge mod and this done in the same day :')
Just gotten started on this last night. Made at about 20 attempts and pretty much hit a brick wall on the felhunters, like many. Aggro dumping seems to be another issue for me; I use the gate but still occasionally eat chaos bolts to the face. To me, this feels more of a pet and macro managing test (which I'm probably bad at) than anything else.
After the cataclysm where I stunned him ofc, I would breath myself if he started casting dots and then immidiatly after the breath send my pet out of line of sight, even before he had run to summon and then I step through the gate to throw off agro before they come.
Then I pop my darksoul (And herbalism buff), I stun the first with shadowfury in case my pit lord is not completely out of line of sight yet (He is kinda slow with that big bum) chaos bolt it, conflag/incinerate and shadowburn. Just repeat that with all 3 and you can send your pitlord in, make him dispel you and step through the gate.
A good tip is to when he is summoning the first doomguard, dismiss your pit lord and re enslave him, then his timer wont run out at 2nd set of felhunters :P (Oh damn was I annoyed) The summon for the doomlord is quite long so you have plenty of time.
I did learn I was sending my pit lord to the corner too late before the felhunters were summoned and if they even get a glance of his big ass, they'll go wake him up. I've also saved my embers before the puppies were summoned for healing in case needed and it working so far.
Gonna give it another go tonight. Hopefully I can pull it off; the repair costs are starting to mount up. :/
Got my book two days ago, was up all night last night fighting Kanrethad, and OH MY GOD.
This is a fun fight.
I still haven't managed to kill him yet, unfortunately I'm in the middle of a transistion between epilepsy meds and consequently my concentration can lapse at anytime. Furthest I got him down was past 2 doom lords and into execute phase, then I was too slow to dispel myself and died from dots. The feeling of achievement from my progress so far though has been amazing, I've no doubt I'll down him within the next few tries, but I think I will wait until I'm stable on my meds, sudden loss of awareness is NOT a helpful thing in this fight xD
UPDATE: Logged in one more time to give it one last try and one shotted it this morning! YEAAAAAAH!!!

Finally got him, and it came on what would've been my final attempt of the night!
Had a few heartbreaking deaths, including a 1% ( had him down to 300k health!). What made that particular death sting more was it took me at least another 20 attempts to finally get him. I'd say about 60+ total.
Well i just got my kill today, took roughly 40ish wipes 20 of those where me figuring out the fight myself then went an watch a couple guides an all came down to excuting the fight proply i was in 483 IL (mostly t14 LFR an heroic blues).
I have to say it was amazing fun the pressure of getting everything perfectly was awesome! i hope they dont nurf this encounter an leave it as is!.
I knew i was going to get the kill when i was gettin to 10-20% easily even with a couple mistakes (failed aggro dumping a couple times)
once i got the kill i think i woke up my room mates hahaha!
