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.

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.

OK OK...

First i attacked him with 1 squad...boom
Then i was back with 2 squads...bomm

Then i told myself that i should try to destroy the tables with Baal while a squad divert him...boom

I could have torn my hair apart when in realized those ♥♥♥♥ing tables would respawn.

+ Fight in the center of the room = the Guardian seems to be able to use his feet and walk to any table. Anyway, the ratio of wounds taken when evading (walking to the tables) compared to his regeneration rate is an insult to logic. Try it with someone big you don't like : shoot him in the back while he is walking to his kitchen then eating some pizza.

+ Teleport a squad in front of him = sorry, no more squad available and my gold and mana reserves are quite low. "This is supposed to make your realize the importance of teleportation". Erm, i noticed the importance of TP as soon as it was available to me.

+ I laugh when i see some guys above saying : "It's so easy, juts put your 18 soldiers here or there" ROFL 18 soldiers....OK, next time i will count flies for 3 hours, time for me to get those scums...

So, as many players, i had a nerves boost and quit the game with no envy to be back on the horse and tame him. This just sucks, i can't believe some guys justify things this way.

Putting such a fight in a tutorial is, IMO, a big mistake. A tutorial must be a piece of cake, if not it gives to x % of players a very bad feeling about the game.
If i try again and miss again three times, i will stop trying again for 3 months.

I was telling myself "Well, this game is now pretty enjoyable" and baaassshhhhhhhhh, a big bucket of icy water was poured on my head
