Love him! Want to fight him again!
Meh, I could go either way.
Hate him! Never want to do that again, ever.
attempting to do this on my 495 alt lock seems impossible :S... so many things to keep manage of... rain of fire, immolate, dispell, avioding everything, dropping threat at all times, LoSing half of his moves, having to have to use half of your pets spells. such an annoyance. Anyone know how long it takes for him to summon all his imps too? I swear he'd be done the cast and they'd still be spawning 5 seconds afterwards
Amazing fight. It was a pain but it was so much fun. It requires you to use many of the warlock abilities and it helps a lot making macros to help make the fight more fun. The soft enrage is a great way to give it your all. I understand a lot of peoples frustration with this fight due to its difficulty but I think that is what made it a fun fight.
I did this when my ilvl was a 497. It is manageable if done correctly under a 500 ilvl

As a side note I'd have loved to have had 495 gear when I did it, just based on my experience I'd say anything above 460-465 or so is when it becomes feasible for the average player to do, anything above that lets you make more mistakes without it necessarily being a wipe, I finished it at 470 I believe.
http://www.twitch.tv/rydium/c/2122838 was my kill for reference.
Not Patham anymore, Ryzia/Rydium@Darkspear EU
I can't get past the felhunter phase, think they should nerf that atleast rest of the fight is fine. It is a great challenge and i have lots of fun doing it untill i wipe there xD Well i hope i get it next weekend
Now that I've downed him, I love the fight.
It's not that hard, it took me about 2 hours and a half to kill the dude.
@Clarke Something also important to remember is you really have to have either the glyph or stone that auto-uses your gate for you. I died about 30 times without it and after finally looking at a guide and trying that out I nailed it on my 2nd attempt. Also for imps its best to hold off on using the flame breath for as long as you can. Another little tip is the heal the pit lord has DOES cause threat so you have 2 ways to pull the imps off you. So it ends up looking like:
Use your gate to make sure some imps are mad at pit lord
Position yourself behind pit lord away from the gate and wait for imps while DPS'ing ebonlocke
At about halfway through his channel I start AoE'ing Ebonlocke and use the Pitlord's heal
Move forward and use Pitlord's flame breath to cleanse yourself
Keep RoF up on any leftover imps and use embers to spam damage into Ebonlocke
Hope it helps, ended up finishing this at ilvl482 so at 495 you def have the stats to do it, you just gotta slow it down in your head.
I think it's hilarious that he is hard (and rightfully so), so EVERY warlock who goes in there JUST assume that its gonna be a rollover, then they realize that they can't just PEWPEWPEW.... I love this fight, and do it regularly for fun.
I personally think you should add: "Love him! One time is enough though" option. I very much enjoyed every moment of progressing on him (took me like 1.5h) however when you have done it one time it wouldn't be much of a challenge the next time and therefore I would not want to fight him again. I want my memory of that boss to be perserved just as it is right now.
It was okay. IMO the hunter quest back in vanilla was much harder.
Only 1 boss was a kite only fight. Shit, one was a 100% melee fight. Also the quest starter dropped from the 2nd to last boss of a 40 man raid, not off a soloable rare. Also you can even buy the tome off the AH.
Sorry, but they don't compare in difficulty.
It's a good fight. It's hard, yes, but it's okay to have hard things.
I voted yes because I thought the fight was well designed: it expects perfect execution for a sustained duration, dealing with multiple different mechanics at once, and yet is not RNG in any way whatsoever. A mistake leads to death, so it's unforgiving - but it is not unfair.
No, I never want to do it again.
So what you had to kill more than one boss each with different mechanics. Maybe you're a better Warlock than you were a Hunter????
I'm sticking to my opinion as the Hunter quest was a joke compared to the warlock quest.
