It took me 19 attempts with my 488 ilvl, but I have finally done it. Before I managed to do that, I was one of the warlocks who complained about it. You see, I played lock since beta on Bloodfeather, and I remember every single detail from then till now. How taurens had plainsrunning ability which was removed after first patch, how no one would duel locks cause dots could kill people in duels, how fear never ended, the pvp lvl 70 with SL/SL (for those who don't know, soul link/siphon life spec) spec and me having 18k hp full brutal ( the fun to kill ppl 5v1 in bgs with dots, fear, etc ) and more.
So for me, getting greenfire was not a choice, it was a must. I was really excited when I first read about it. Then i got busy with my DK and I kinda forgot about it. Last week, I visited the warlock forum, and I remembered everything. I decided it was time to get greenfire. After reading about quest, how to start it, where, etc. I decide to get the tome. It was up on AH for 25k and I decided nope, im gonna farm it. I haven't really done any quests of Isle of Thunder, so I didn’t know anything about the rares there etc, so I decided to kill them on my DK since he has decent tank gear and blood spec. Then I read that it only drops for locks, so that was no longer an option. I looked up the map of rares and their spawn points. I was aff back then. Bloodfeather is a low pop server, and since I started about 2 am, I managed to find and kill 4 rares with no problem, but no tome dropped. I went to bed logging out near 1 of the rare spawns. I came back next morning and checked the rare next to me, the one that drops BS things I think. He was up, so I killed him and bam! Tome! I was happy of course, I bound the tome to me and I started the chain quest. After doing the initial part, I ended up at the BT scenario. At this point I decided to read on how to do it, watch vids, etc.
After doing that, I realized that I am better off going dest. Problem was that I hated dest. I was aff./demo. most of the time, thus, I had to go to iceyveins, read everything about dest, stats, tips, tricks, etc. I reforged and resocketed all my gear, changed glyphs and talents, and then, I decided to do a couple of LFR to put my new spec into test. I wasn’t really happy since I wasn’t used to it but I didn’t have much of a choice. Once I was done, I headed up to BT, and started the fight, I did fine till imps where I was 1 shot by a chaos bolt I didn’t notice. I started again, was more careful and reached fel hunter phase, when enslave got dispelled and I was gang raped by boss, pit lord, and fel puppies. I got stuck in this phase for a while since I couldn’t manage to deal with fel puppies and always lost enslave and got killed. I watched vids on how to do it but it didn’t help much since watching is one thing and applying is a totally different story. I had to learn it myself. After some trial and error I found out a few things:
1- Fearing puppies is useless as these !@#$ers will devour enslave the very moment fear ends regardless, and same goes for banish.
2- I had to keep boss directly behind puppies cause if they just turned their heads, bye bye enslave.
3- I had to position boss behind portal and ROF on it to get puppies agro.
How did I deal with it? Simple. I found a fail proof tactic.
1- Collect 3-4 embers, and save 2 charges of conflag.
2- ROF portal after hiding pit behind it.
3- When first puppy comes, havoc him, pop cds and trinkets, target second one, and double chaos bolt him. He should be dead and first 1 will be 17-35% depending on procs etc.
4- If first puppy not dead and above 20%, double conflag + shadowburn if needed.
5- If bellow 20%, shadowburn.
6- Turn to last puppy and double chaos.
7- Puppies can kiss your %^- goodbye at this point
I did face some difficulties here however:
1- If you are not fast enough to kill them, boss will start cast chaos. Form my experience, I do not recommend teleporting since it will reset agro and send puppies right to the pit bastard, so you have to soak it. I suggest you turn up sounds and get spell alert addon to know about chaos cast. When you hear/see it, pop sac shield (make sure u are near full hp since shield strength depend on your hp) and pop demonic shield thingy (red icon, can't recall name, the one that reduce damage taken). This should allow you to survive. Ah I remembered name, unending resolve.
2- If puppies die and boss is casting chaos, tele away, or if demonic gate is far from you, just soak it as explained above.
3- If you are even slower than that in killing puppies, boss will cast cataclysm and you are pretty much *!@#ed, but with tactic explained earlier, you should be able to kill puppies fast.
4- If he start cast cataclysm, and u have 1 puppy on you, you can banish him, charge boss with pit, dismiss pit and fear him, unbanish puppy and kill him while pit is feared, renslave pit, soul shatter to reset and portal. You may ask why renslave and fear? The thing is 90% chance the puppy will devour enslave when you unbanish so this way u have pit under control just in case. Note: fear lasts quite a while, so you have to dispel it with imp ability from sacrifice.
5- Why not fear pit when killing puppies? Cause if you renslave him when boss starts cast cataclysm, the chance are you won't have time to dispel fear in time to interrupt boss.
6- Another reason for renslave here is to renew enslave buff which lasts 5 min. I do it twice in the fight here and later after second doom, I will explain later.
So you are done with puppies, next? Things are easy till doom pops. Target him and make pit do a couple of swings on him + fire and he should have agro, don’t forget to portal away to drop agro as well. Repeat the whole thing till second puppy wave. Deal with it as described earlier. When boss summons second doom, dismiss pit and renslave. Use pit to agro second doom and first doom, soul shatter and portal away.
