Instant kills within 5 yards... takes 10% of it's HP to do it. Deth has a... TON of HP. Healing is pretty much null... though range on it is a question. He moves faster when not taking damage. He can't be tamed till lower health.

Questions to discover: for 'taking damage' does that include DoTs? It may or may not. We shouldn't assume it does.
Deth Strike, if it uses it at 10% or below... does it not work (it can't use it), or does it kill Deth'tilac?
Does Deth Strike target pets, snakes, etc? It seems like it is partly in as a mechanic to get Deth low on health. Perhaps we are supposed to revive/sacrifice our pet to it over and over. Or sacrifice the snakes from snake trap... or gather all the gnomes in the guild together to play 'munchies' for Deth.

It seems like it will start with kiting. And either getting it to around 9% to disable dethstrike. While having other damage effecting it (DoTs or snake trap or others).

I am looking forward to it ^.^ Now if only spiders were better for more than just pvp...

Will he cast it on the pet if the pet has agro? Seems like it would be a good way to get his health down a bit faster... especially if he might use it on snakes from a snake trap.

Deterrance still works while you're channeling--you aren't dodging, it's just "misses" :)
