Midway through the fight, Balnazzar shifts from his humanoid form, into a demon, taking flight. Overall, it isn't a hard fight, just keep up the DPS throughout.
THe best way to handle him, is your tank pull him to the far wall, and your healer stand with the back to the exact opposite wall.
He does an AOE stun and when I stand back like this I don't get caught up in it and I cna keep our tank alive.
He drops the flask of wisdom recipe and I have yet to see the stupid thing drop in my 78 runs of this place. *sigh
As a bit of useless trivia, Balnazzar was one of the random names given to Dreadlord heroes in Warcraft III.
i just soloed him and whole strat scarlet ,
Anonym 70 UD Warlock Talnivarr
Balnazzar is dead why does he live!!!! Blizzard fuckes the whole entire warcraft history !
It's simple... Varimathras didn't really kill Balnazzar, and is a traitor.
Guess blizzard thought that the twist in the storyline outweight the missing explanation for his death.
Blizzard is know for making great and complicated stories for their games... And I can't ever imagine they would make a mistake like that.
Here are my theories on the whole Balnazzar thing. First off, "Dreadlords aren't allowed to kill their own"? I was suspiscious of this when he first said it. Since when do Dreadlords follow ANY kind of rules? Varimathras likely made this crap up. He was supposed to kill him to prove his loyalty, and very well could have, yet he's still alive. As one poster mentioned, he may have allowed Bal to live, thus proving disloyalty to Sylvanas. It's sort of like Stormwind's Onyxia situation, where one force (Balnazzar and the Scarlet Crusade) is attacking from the outside, while another (Varimathras and the Deathstalkers) is subverting it from within. As for why Bal would be attacking the Scourge, it's not the Dreadlords who betrayed the Burning Legion, it was Ner'Zhul. The Dreadlords were the Legion's means of making sure Ner'Zhul did what they want, and he betrayed the Dreadlords, and thus the Legion, by commanding Arthas to kill Mal'Ganis when he first picked up Frostmourne.
One last note: Whatever reason Balnazaar survived, Varimathras undoubtedly knew. If he held any real loyalty, he would likely have told Sylvanas.
Balnazzar died..then he respawned lol
Food goes in the mouth.
Tell me. If balnazzar came back why didnt Dethoroc huh. I dont understand that. If Balnazar survived why not Dethoroc? Plz answer and i shall be happy =)
There is a book somewhere in the game that explains why Balnazaar is alive. I'm not giving the location away because, well, I really don't remember where i read it. But it explains everything you guys, (And the demonic roleplayer) are bickering over.
Just killed him with 4 people: Me (Druid), Warrior, Paladin and Rogue (All level 60�s)
Now that was nice!
very easy boss, much easier than the baron, he doesn't even hit very hard, his health and toughness is also about average. He can be tricky for inexperienced groups though:
You NEED a good dps regimine on him to end the fight quickly, or else if the fight drags on he'll probably eventually start MCing people and fearing, which is where it will get really hairy, especially if he targets the healer when the party is running about like headless chickens
Provided the warrior (or whoever is tanking) holds the agro, has his pvp trinket equipped in case of a sleep, is spam healed by the main healer and the rest of the party don't accidentally pull the agro off him for too long, he will drop quite quickly
I belive Blanazzar and Varimathras thought up a plan before sylvannas attacked varimathras as they knew they could not defeat her:
phase 1: Varimathras submits himself before syvannas and offer her eternal loyality in exchange for his life.
phase 2: Let dethoric die at sylvannas� hands.
phase3: After balnazzars army is defeated Varimathras pretends to kill belnazzar, balnazzar pretends to die.
phase 4: Balnazzar founds the scarlet crusade.
Lore wise, it's against the law of the dreadlords to kill each other. So when Lady Sylvannas told Varimathras to kill Balnazzar, it's unknown if Varimathras didn't kill Balnazzar accidentally or purposely.
It's pretty #$%^ed up though. Balnazzar sends his brother to tell Lady Sylvannas to join him, and finds out Sylvannas recruited him.
Since we handed his head to argent dawn.
maybe he just ressed at the spirit healer, and is weak cause he still has ressurection sickness? :P
I Like Demons and i Will post Pictures of Them)
"Sylvanas, Varimathras, and Garithos approached Balnazzar, and Sylvanas ordered Varimathras to kill his brother as a testament to his loyalty to her. Varimathras was abhorred. Killing another Nathrezim was forbidden, but Sylvanas was adamant. Balnazzar was sure that Varimathras would never take that final step. He was wrong. (Though we see Varimathras kill Balnazzar, we don't know if Balnazzar's survival was intentional or accidental)."
Edit: Bah, didnt see someone already posted this.
I have an idea.... ever met two people with the name John? Maybe Balnazzar is a popular name for dreadlords... like Chris... or Stephen.
I really wish the lightforge boots would drop... been there like 12 times now, and the epic book of the dead dropped already... funny how it's only a .3% drop and 10% for my boots. Makes me sad.
are u talking about. Where have u heard him been called that. I only have heard him as Balnazzar from WC 3 where he comes from
I JUST got done playin WCIII and the expansion today. Balnazzar does die at the hand of Varimathras, and even if he didnt completey kill him, why Stratholme? Why not go to OL?
this the brother of Varimathras and some other dreadlord
soloed as of 29/05/2007
I thought balnazaar was dead...
Dropped him tonight and got Recipe: Flask of Distilled Wisdom... YAY
Is there some secret to this? Tried it in a 5 man group and we got our asses handed to us. He still had 63% or something.
And yeah I thought he was dead too.
Either Scarlet Strat is easy as hell, or the people I play with just rock...
60 Paladin (that's me, as main healer)
No mage, no rogue, no priest. Even with a horrid pull in the last half of the instance we didn't wipe once. Only people who died was Warlock a few times throughout, and 59 Paladin at Wiley cause he was healing me instead of himself :P
Anyway, Balnazzar wasn't really that tough, I imagine it would be even easier with Fear Ward/Tremor Totem. Just make sure the tank is always pulling him to one side of the room and everyone else is as far away as possible. His AoE stun has a 20 yard range.
If a warlock did Enslave Demon on this guys would'nt they become the new leader of the scarlet crusade with Balnazzar as their pet/slave?..
Of all mid-instance bosses, this must be the best one to farm money on. Apart from the chance to get Righteous Orbs on the way to him, he drops 2 BoE recipes/patterns which both sell for a lot of money, a reasonable chance for Book of the Dead (BoP though) and the rest of his loottable has a fair vendor price, for those who're not an enchanter.

I went with a group last night that consisted of 2 70's and a 68 and Balnazzar showed up as a 68 Elite!
lets just say wer weren't expecting that.
He must be an undead demon then.
Balnazzar looks so cool and is so easy!(ofc if u know what to do - casters should stay away from him and thats all)
He needs some buff in stamina or damage - he's probably the easiest 62 lvl mob.
Got right to his door, then the priest left, didn't say a word. I was pissed, I want demonshear bad too, seeing how its easier to do a Strat Live run, then try to farm rep with the circle.
hehe, sucks when he MCs the main tank with no priest. wiped an MC gear'd our group 5man. goes to show these bosses can still hold their own no matter what gear you've got.
It make's senses the scarlet crusade wasnt always evil if you did all the quests and scarlet dungeons(and the heros in SM armory) plus i doubt he would die so easily he will probaly be back and better then ever that i know
dropped truefaith pattern and both helms for my 6 man group, right after shadowcraft shoulders and devout gloves. would have been a perfect run if SC wasnt ninja'd by our hunter.
Where is this guy?
That MC sucks. Any way to get around that crap?
essential that the mt gets his whole attention. i stood in the door, healin from there - got no stuns. priest was inside the room, he got put to sleep etc - i dispelled and healed all the time.
he mindcontrolled our rogue, but the mage sheeped him :P
I tanked this guy in grays and red gear and we beat him, 5 man.
i hate this guy... effing lightforge boots never drop
no balazaar never died >_> even if he did the legion would bring him back as he is allready dead
