The first spell of any magic school (eg: Fireball) anyone flings at the demon, it will absorb it and will cast a buff to reduce damage taken by 75% from that school of magic. (eg: Magic Protection: Fire) It will then convert absorbed magic into an offensive volley (eg: Fireball Volley). As soon as the demon has cast this magic volley, he drops his magic resistance and absorbs the next magic type cast on him. This mob is easily killed with only melee damage.

Note: As typical of all "Screamers" of Azeroth, this mob also casts an AoE fear.
This mob can be incredibly troublesome for paladin tanks. As a huge portion of paladin aggro comes from spell damage the worst thing you could fight would be something highly resistant to holy damage, which this mob can potentially be. It is recommended to use a magical resistance aura/devotion aura and seal of the crusader until the mob absorbs a non-holy magic type, at which point you may judge/conscecrate/exorcise as much as you can before it changes its magic type again. Absorbing holy damage becomes further troublesome as it is the hardest of all types to resist when the mob starts using holy damage against you.
