This boss is standing in the middle of a room with 16 panthers, 8 on each side of her. The tank needs to aggro boss and begin pulling adds into the fight, but only 2 or 4 at a time. (however many you think your dps and heals can handle) Dps needs to take priority on burning adds, ignore boss altogether. The panthers do a considerable amount of damage and attack the whole party doing dots and making the healers job increasingly difficult.

Most PuG tanks stand in the center of the room and pick up panthers in each pen. This isn't suggested because it gives the panthers a chance to jump to on someone else in the group.

The tank needs to get in each pen with the boss (to kite the boss into pen quickly, tank or dps must interrupt boss's casting) to take panthers in there, then tank can prevent those panthers jump to the other group member, tank's AoE attack to get threat will be more effective, due to pen's narrow space prevents panthers' jump more. And also, it makes dps and heal are easy to avoid Wave of Agony, because once the boss get in pen, she can cast it only her behind.

If you do not kill these panthers before Kilnara reaches 50%, you will have to fight the ones left alive. Any panthers you haven't killed will intervene at phase 2.

Once all of the adds are burned down focus on the boss, once you get her down a good amount the room will start shaking and aoe damage will be taken by the entire group, the boss then transforms into a panther humanoid and will vanish from battle only to re appear attacking a different party member. Once you make it to the panther form its pretty much smooth sailing. ENJOY :D
