Confirming that latest PTR BUild bugged this boss. When I first time come and summoned him, I check out his HP. HE HAD FUCKIN 31 Million. They buffed his HP??? He had in the past 26 Million... Anyway he summoned the Pit lord I enslave him and he just stand staring at me doing nothing... Well was boring fight... I don't know why Blizzard buffed him with 5 milion more HP :/
So essentially, blizzard only wants high end warlocks with atleast full normal raid gear to do this? Well that's absolutely horse shit..
While I am not playing incredibly actively on my warlock, I still play him, and seeing I won't be able to do this quest since I'm only in heroic dungeon gear is just plain stupid in my opinion. I have a feeling this'll turn out to be something along the lines of Sunwell... a few select people will see this content.
I am not amused.

Drop chance for 5.0 raid finder gear is increased, there are 522 valor items available at neutral and friendly with Shado Pan Assault, not to mention 5.2 raid finder gear ...
It will be accessible to normal/heroic raiders first, yes, but even non-raiders will outgear it before Siege of Orgrimmar.
Demo-wise Iam a bit disappointed with the green fire looks.
-Soulfire looks worst in fel version for some reason its more "transparent" and lost some of its meatiness (hard to explain)
-Green Meta is not great. When I saw the quest boss in it I though was coll but on us it isnt becuase we lack that green "aura" that the boss had, to me green meta just looks like meta covered in puke
- Hellfire and immo Aura looks great thou.
Warlock / IA Operative / Wizard / Engineer
I have to disagree with you on the green metamorphosis though. it looks very cool like that and i think the demonic fury aura we get a 500 DF should be green to coincide with the green meta.
Dunno, thinking about the questline and how green fire got applied I have almost reached at the conclusion of quitting my Warlock.
Looks like they fixed hellfire/immolation aura look, no more orange cracks yay.
Rain of fire meteors are slightly more green, but still looks kinda wrong imo.
Well it's good to know they're still working on the animations. Maybe the fires will look a bit more "meaty"
Here's it in video form without and with Mannoroth's Furry.

Keep in mind that the Harvest was to be involved in Pandaria storyline due to Wrathion and the scenario Xel mentioned about Zelfrax trying to grasp the Sha. Instead we get a basic questline focusing on simply getting green fire and FORCED to get Green Meta too. I understand that some people like Green Meta and I believe that many others want green fire and KEEP the original Meta. The main reason people want green fire is to differentiate the fire element from the Mage one, not to distort one of the most unique Warlock abilities, Metamorphosis.
