I did it again a couple of days ago to get the quest credit (was in a raid the first time I got it so it didn't count for the quest) and it's pretty faceroll once you get some gear. Considering it took me 40+ tries the first time, 3 times to reaquaint myself with the fight and kill it wasn't a lot.
Moderator of Heroes of the Storm, come say hi!
Well by random I mean the annoying fel pups. i stand still while fighting them, so they wont turn around. pit lord behind them on one side of portal, me on the other. Kanrethad beating on pit lord while im taking out fel pups. but they still like to randomly turn to eat enslave. My gear is still only 485.. LFR hates me on this character but loves my mage -_-... and no raid team yet. Will end up going again if I'm lucky enough to get some more gear. Just hope the portal change in next patch won't affect this too badly, though I already have the habit of keeping a circle up during the fight just in case. After years of raiding in FFXI, WoW, Rift and other games, my patience levels have diminished greatly so as of late I get fed up quickly or pissed off easily. One day though, I will finally get this, even if it takes another expansion <_<;;
@Serafall. Don't give up man. I did this quest this weekend on my warlock alt. the damn Fel puppies were definately the hardest part for me, but once I figured out how to do that part properly, the rest just fell into place.
I was so frustrated at one point, I just had to stand up and walk away before I smashed my keyboard into a million pieces. But I came back, turned on some smoothing music (Explosions in the Sky) and within five more attempts, I had it.
That was at iLev 499. I didn't keep count, but it took me under ~30 tries. Now I'm actually looking forward to trying it as Affliction to see if I can figure out how to do it. Seems like it will be a lot harder than destro.
Edit: I just wish there was an achiev for this quest. Something I could link in gchat to show off.

not sure if maybe you're already doing it, but after you interrupted the cataclysm after the imps, immediately move the pit lord behind one of the pillars coming out of the walls. keep RoF over the portal when the felhounds spawn and don't forge to keep using the portal. that way the felhounds never eat the debuff since it's out of LOS.
just did this fight in 469ilvl gear with green trinket still, so it should go a little smoother for you, if you get that felhound round down. gl^^
I keep having threat issues as well along with AoE taking out the portals. My threat issues come when I have to re-enslave the Pit Lord. His threat is completely wiped and even soul shatter doesn't get me beneath his re-established threat, I had it happen with two doom lords and a heap of freshly spawned fel imps attacking. I re-enslave but I simply can't get threat off me and onto the pit lord. Result is eventually a chaos bolt heads my way.
If it's not an elf, leave it on the shelf.

I FINALLY killed Kan last night on my Warlock Istorvir. I first attempted him about a month ago after I had filled out a full malevolent PvP set (ilvl 476) and got completely obliterated. After about 20 wipes I decided I needed better gear, particularly with hit on it. I worked my way up to get enough gear from raid finder to be hit capped, changed a few talents and glyphs, and after about 10 or 12 passes last night was able to defeat him with six seconds left on Ultimate Doom. Really, once I got the Fel Puppies figured out the rest of the fight just fell into place. The end of the fight was crazy! He straight up almost killed me at the last second, but I got off one last Shadowburn before his soul fire and it pushed him over the edge. All said and done, I got him down at 489 ilvl.
I have to say, this was a great encounter. It caused me to utter many a curse word, but what a sense of accomplishment; the same type I had back in my hardcore raiding days. Blizzard got this one right. I really had to work for this to get it done and I severely enjoyed the quest line and Kan's fight.
Congrats to those that have accomplished this, and good luck to those still working on it. Don't give up! Green fire is worth it!

Okay, so I just started on this quest about a week ago. I tried it a few times last week and couldn't even get past the first Felhunter fase. Today I've been going at it for about an hour, finally on the last 3-4 tries I got past the first Felhunter fase. And once I got those down it wasn't hard to get to the second Felhunter fase, but then I hit another brick wall.
My ilvl is only about 470, so I need to have plenty of luck with ember generation in order to get those pesky Felhunters down quick enough. Yeah, I think once I get some more gear this fight will get very doable. As it is right now I think it's still very much possible, but requires some luck next to skill. I'm sure I'll get it eventually.
I will burn your soul.
If you put the effort into getting good enough to do the fight szarala instead of making a point to disagree with everyone who says they got it right (the majority) you could have green fire by now.
..that people hold an encounter that's 90% the management of a one-time-ever use pet to be the pinnacle of warlock experience doesn't irritate me, it -infuriates- me.
It's not that people enjoy the encounter and I don't. Many people like rollercoasters and I don't; that's not the issue. The sentiment that just because a handful of warlock tricks are helpful to the encounter that it's the perfect test of being a warlock is just.. unfathomable to me. If they opened up the encounter to any class for whatever reason, putting an Orb of Control or whatever down to allow enslavement of the Pit Lord, I can think of several other classes that could handle the encounter just as well if not better. Heck, soloing G'nathus seems like a better test of warlock abilities than Kanrethad to me.
I'm not saying "Stop liking what I don't like" and I'm not trying to lessen anyone's accomplishments, I just disagree, very, very strongly with all the "this is what being a warlock is all about" cheerleading.
Answer me this please.
Have you got green fire?
Can you stream?
Do you want to complete the quest (assuming you dont have it) ?
I will personally sit on a voice comm server with you until you do this if you actually want to get it done, but i get from your posts that you dont seem to want to and would rather just disagree with everyone who says they like it.
