Not so. I pawned him fairly easily, in all difficulty modes.
Merciless requires a good party, with at least one summoner with lots of minions, and a tank or buffer. You don't go in there alone or with a full melee party. Especially given the aura party boost on the 1.0 version. Plus, you need a very well-balanced character. I survived a lightning blast in front of him, with lvl74 Ranger, with 2.7K HP which, to me, seems ridiculous (I should have been 1-shotted to outer space). The fight is hard but of course it's meant to be that way and could be even harder. The HP mob boost when in party is very enjoyable too. Adds a lot to the balance, after the changes in 1.0. To my opinion, the boss fight should be at least 2x harder than what it is now.

Xfire is old, obsolete, buggy and not even used by most gamers. Steam stats are more "accurate". The day of the release, PoE was ranked #10 on Steam and, including the non-Steam users, it should have been on top 3, on the same day.
Furthermore, these stats mostly include real players, as more than 70% of the player base of other such games are bots.
