I'm sorry, but that first boss is not enjoyable.
His food tables infinitely respawn at an unreasonable rate. I had two armies of 18 soldiers cut down despite all my efforts at kiting and destroying his health sources. There is NOTHING enjoyable about that fight, only frustration. Cheap way to start the campaign up. I'm already mad enough to consider not playing again.

C'mon man. Its an introduction to the importance of the Teleport mechanic.

Fight boss in center of room or as far away from all the tables as you can and then, when he runs towards a table, teleport a squad ahead of him and have that squad attack the table to disable it. Rinse and repeat.

Wat. 2 melee groups with healers for boss, 4-6 ranged for table.

Agree with Senio - bring a few scouts - they can hit the tables easily and it only takes a couple of shots to get rid of them.

The way I did is was simple. My Imp would destroy the tables while my groups fought the boss.

all there is to it is to have as many as you can attack the boss while you have 2 or 3 constantly destroy the food as it appears, dont wait for him to try to eat it

i like challanging fights! And come on ... dont be that touchy and say you dont play the game anymore couse of the first boss.... it wasnt even that hard ....

18 soldiers? You must have been doing something seriously wrong, I killed him in a couple of minutes with 8 units including bhaal.

Yer, ya have to pay attention to the tables. Either your imp destroying them continuous or a squad of ranged focusing the one he is attempting to run to. I tried to ignore the mechanic to the first time ;) with sad effects.

Cooled my head and got back to it. I didn't realize the archers could attack the tables, and I totally neglected the teleporting. All better!

You can get him before he even reaches the first table if you balance your squads a little, 3 beserkers 3 healers and 6 scouts. Try to position your scouts directly behind him so when he runs away your scouts can still pound at him. Also you have about 2 more seconds even after he starts eating since he seems to have to finish to activate the heal so keep pounding in the mean time. If you really wanna mass then try getting as many scouts as possible since at the beggining they have the highest dps and a decent range, just get them to individualy follow Baal.

This fight was ridiculous, finally got there with a lot of scouts.

I didn't even know I had to destroy the tables. The only thing that indicated this was the case, was the yellow hue they had, which I only noticed after reading this thread. I assumed that he would stop healing at some point, so my two squads were slowly killed off.

I don't mind finding things out for myself, but in this case I think there should be a more obvious clue as to what players are supposed to do. As it stands, it's not very clear.

You're just mad that you suck.

This one caused me to get frustrated and put the game down months ago. I never returned.

I was frustrated until I remembered about Teleport, then it was a cakewalk. The fight is probably supposed to teach you to use that ability liberally, which it did in my case.
