Arazzius the Cruel is a level 63 eredar warlock, loyal servant of the leader of the Burning Legion, Kil'jaeden, and the Legion's overlord over the Hellfire Peninsula. Arazzius the Cruel resides at his throne protected by many demons on the top of the mountain at the Pools of Aggonar. As of Patch 4.3.0, this mob is no longer elite and is easily soloable.
Objective of Edit
Arazzius the cruel is immune to stun. All of his abilities can be interrupted, however.
Old kiting Strategy Edit
Before attempting to solo Arazzius, it is important to clear all mobs from the Eastern side of the pools so that the demon can be kited to the road. Once on the road, he can be kited to either the Temple of Telhamat or Thrallmar. He does have ranged abilities, so talents such as Hawk Eye which extend the player's attack range would be beneficial to keep the player out of range.
The primary issue hunters must overcome when kiting Arazzius is the infernals he spawns. These can be slowed by Frost Traps or Frost Nova or other slowing abilities, or picked up with a pet that has AOE aggro capabilities, such as a hunter's gorilla. Because the infernals move faster than the demon, it is usually possible to move to one side and route Arazzius around AOE slowing effects.
Some class and talent combinations may not need to kite Arazzius. This includes, but is not limited to classes with the ability to heal themselves when required.
- What insolence! What arrogance! To believe you could defeat me on my own doorstep!
- Your weapons are nothing against me! Repent!
Upon Killing a Player:
- You wish to test me? You are hardly up to the task.
- Master, I have failed...
