Kitava's first form in Act 5

Kitava, the Insatiable is the final boss of Act 5 and Act 10. He is the main antagonist of The Fall of Oriath expansion. The battle consists of multiple phases in which players must damage Kitava, then damage Kitava's Heart, and this occurs alternatively till Kitava is defeated.

Lore

Kitava is the Karui god of corruption. According to Karui tradition, Kitava is a cannibal deity with boundless hunger. He has the power to consume and corrupt the souls of people, like he did with King Kaom. Like the other gods of Wraeclast, Kitava's abilities are restricted by the Beast (which was destroyed by the player in Act 4).

Taking Soul of Abberath from the Pantheon can also help with Kitava's Ultimate Death Breath skill.

Kitava permanently lowers all of your resistances by 30% after "defeating" him at the end of Act 5 (you can't win. You can only get him to about 50% health and then he turns on Enrage Mode, turns red, and fires a beam from his eyes that destroys the Purity of Innocence. Sin saves you at the last minute) , and reduces them by a further 30% after being defeated in act 10. Caution should be taken to make sure your resistances are high enough so the drop doesn't affect you too harshly. The effect is permanent and cannot be removed.

Kitava has side bosses in heart phases, primarily Kitava's Heart and one additional side boss being Champion of the Feast and Shaman of the Feast.
