2) While it is true that using Gateway on cooldown will prevent any chaosbolts, using gateway on CD will never prevent Kanrethad from dotting you (though it is true that perfect upkeep of the Gateway threat drop can prevent Ultimate Doom from being cast until after the pit lord summoning).
3) There are only two (2) doomguard phases, thus having three doomguards active is impossible.
4) There are only two (2) fel puppy phases, so having a third fell puppy phase is impossible (and thus having killed him just after said third phase is impossible). I tend to agree with Roflifier

I phrase my opinions exactly as I intend to, thanks. I may quit, never know. Enjoyment is the goal here, after all.
Moving on to other sections of the game can be fun, though. It has been so far.
I assure you, I am being genuine in this. Anyway, too much time spent in here alreadyThat's fine, but if that's the case, don't be surprised when people call you out on your bs.
and on an increasingly divergent path from the OP. Good luck to you if you continue the
As someone who racked up around 2-3k in repairs bills doing this fight, my only advice is to stick with it, but if your getting frustrated take a break that day, do something else and come back to it.
I did it with around 483 ilevel, and spent a lot of time doing and perfecting my reactions to the fight and checking up on various threads to make sure I wasn't missing anything (it was only after many deaths that I realised where that damned imp and his stunning and void zones was coming from as that caused me many wipes).
The main strat's mentioned here about using Gatway as soon as it's available to keep threat dropped worked for me, rarely in my attempts did I have a chaos bolt on me and towards the last few tries don't think I had a single one. My main trouble was always making sure the Pit Lord was hidden away during Fel Pup stages and making sure they aggro'd on me and I got them down quick enough to be able to deal with the next phase, and the panic moment after 2nd fel pup when you realise enslave has run out and Pit Lord is running at you while you still have a pup or two alive.
PS. Don't do this after an op, you think the repair bills and frustration from the fight are bad, try popping 2 stitches because you've tensed up so much when you finally succeed and having to dash up A&E after you got green fire, not the best way to celebrate victory!
PPS. The glyph that allows gateway use without clicking is a god-send on this fight, found clicking quite often failed and the glyph gets rid of all that issue so you can make sure you get most use of the gateway.

Finally got mine!
It's very hard and it's frustrating but damn you feel proud when you get it!
Fallout 4 Hype!
I've just had my fourth sub-10% wipe on Kanrethad, and each time I've noticed that my heart was pounding dangerously strongly, making me uncomfortable with trying again for at least 30 minutes.
Anyone else feeling that intense while doing it?
Can't say that I experienced that. My excitement peaked around the first time I got him to ~20% / where victory looked to be within grasp. Beyond that it just became inevitable.
In all seriousness if you're getting that worked up you should probably try some relaxation exercises in between attempts. Some square breathing or something similar.
It sucks that I outgeared it so much, at 515+ it's pretty much a cake walk once you have the tactics down. Still an awesome fight tho! Just relax, don't take it too serious

Yea it was a pretty intense fight, once you start reaching around 10% and you can see light at the end of the tunnel it's hard to calm your heart rate down. I only wish more had gone into the quest-line/scenario leading up to the fight; an extremely intense and epic conclusion a not so epic quest-line.
-didn't know the Pit Lords breath removed debuffs.
-didn't know his heal also healed me
-didn't know his charge made the boss take 100% more damage
-never attempted to LOS the pit lord, I would rain of fire the portal and teleport away so that the Enslave was never dispelled
These things would have made things much easier. The fight is very intense, definitely gets your blood flowing. Best solo experience in Wow, easily. They did an awesome job and I hope to see more things like this for other classes.
If you are getting it so low, you will get down eventually. You might already know this from a guide or something (I'd be amazed if no one did it by now) but the way to kill it is maximizing the pet stuns on it. Be close to it when when you stun it and start casting Chaos Bolt BEFORE the stun, stunning him when CB is like 75% cast!
Basically: Pitlord spawns, mortal coil it, enslave (with enslave glyph because LOL SPEED) instant stun, stun when he's summoning imps(or on CD), stun on CD after every Cataclysm but be sure you don't stun him BETWEEN A SUMMON and a CATACLYSM. If you stun him when he's ~90% done with summoning, you will have the CD for next Cataclysm.
I did it in 522 ilvl gear on live to steam roll it but I had 16 hours of FRAPS'ed footage on him and did it as low as 463 ilvl. I guess I did my share of it on PTR.
Ah cant really say, only to support and claim that i feel you bro, did it on the first days of 5.2 as 480 pvp ( there wernt any good strats back then) and after sub 10% wipes i didnt knew what to do with myself i kept walking around the house for around 5min just to calm myself.
though when he died my neighbers called the police on me.
