Upgrade Your WoW Account: Glory of the Icecrown Raider 2
WoW Account Upgrade: So It Begins
Unlike Glory of the Firelands Raider, Glory of the Icecrown Raider has no required Heroic achievements to obtain. However, this WoW meta achievement is split into two with one dealing with 10 man and the other for 25 man. While 10 man is going to be a total breeze for a level 100, 25 man can still be a challenging endeavor, especially if you are not prepared for it. It’s always best to attempt these achievement with at least a partner and, at the very most, a fully party. Anything more would be overkill.
While it is entirely possible for someone to obtain all achievements in one run, one of the achievements required, Once Bitten, Twice Shy, will require at least 2 lockouts in order to do. This is because its requirements are to defeat Queen Lana’thel as a vampire and to defeat her while normal. This obviously cannot be done in a single run, so you’ll have to wait for another week to finish it on both 10 man and 25 man.
WoW Account Upgrade: Lord Marrowgar
The first boss you encounter in Icecrown Citadel is Lord Marrowgar, one of the Lich King’s most loyal servants and gatekeeper of the Citadel. In either 10 man or 25 man, this encounter’s achievement is stupidly easy, though it may be a bit tricky for you in 25 man if you aren’t geared properly as a level 100 or don’t have any back up with you.
Boned (10 player)
Defeat Lord Marrowgar without any raid member remaining impaled for more than 8 seconds in 10-player mode.
This is simple, really; burst down Lord Marrowgar as fast as freaking possible to avoid his impale skill in the first place. This is going to be especially important for solo players attempting the meta achievement, but it isn’t so important if you have a friend with you. Remember that the impaling that Marrowgar does isn’t required to be avoided but just that anyone who does get impaled must be freed immediately. 8 seconds is your time limit per impale and that’s simple enough to do as a level 100.
Again, to make things simpler, pop all your offensive cooldowns and just go nuts on Marrowgar. Once you take him down, you’ll obtain your achievement, pick up your loot, and move on to the next boss in the Glory of the Icecrown Raider meta achievement, Lady Deathwhisper. We’ll be dealing with that in the next article. Stay tuned for more improvements to your WoW account.
