Arazzius the Cruel is a level 63 eredar warlock, loyal servant of the leader of the Burning Legion, Kil'jaeden, the Legion's overlord over the Hellfire Peninsula and one of the lieutenants of Kazzak. Arazzius the Cruel resides at his throne protected by many demons on the top of the mountain at the Pools of Aggonar.

Arazzius the Cruel is immune to stuns. All of his abilities can be interrupted, however.
Old kiting strategy
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.
The primary issue hunters must overcome when kiting Arazzius is the infernals he spawns. These can be slowed by Frost Traps or 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!
- Master, I have failed...
