This is the only fight in which the adds are, in my mind the deciding factor, not the bosses and their individual abilities. Anub'arak and Eregos balance each others' abilities out perfectly, Eregos cannot be hit by Anub'arak's close-range killing blows and Anub'arak can burrow to avoid Eregos' aerial bombardment.This is a fight between great generals with vast forces at their commands, not individuals, and as with all conflicts between armies, the most versatile and adaptive army will win out. Consider Anub'arak. In a one-on-one with Eregos he would have no chance, unless Eregos was in a confined space and could not take flight. Anub'arak does, however have a veritable joint strike force of adds. They have ranged abilities, vast numbers, the ability to engage multiple targets at once, and most importantly: Flight. Eregos' adds are considerably more limited. The battle would be a very long one, fittingly enough it would be the longest battle of TBE. This is because Anub'arak and Eregos would be forced into a war of attrition. Eregos' best option for the fight is to quit the field, despite being very resilient to the relative "pinprick" attacks of Anub'arak's forces. Given the legendary tunneling abilities of the Nerubians, though, retreat to Coldarra and heights would only grant Eregos a brief reprieve before a renewed assault. Anub'arak would additionally be able to emerge from the ground to personally coordinate the attack, with Eregos flying out of range to cut Anub'arak's advantage, removing venomancers from the fray.Anub still wins by attrition.
