Having downed all of Firelands Friday night, we headed for ICC and that old friend of ours, Arthas, on Saturday. Repgrind has a writeup too which you should totally read but my screenshots are cooler so there.
Most of us only needed a couple achievements to get our drakes. Mostly, “Orb Whisperer”. Ah, yes. We’d tried last week on heroic and failed and the initial plan was to do it on normal – but that meant Falahla at least would not get a drake, so we determined to try on heroic again I had an addon called something like “AchievementTracker” or “AchievementHelper”, I can’t remember, running. So as soon as we had someone take too much damage I knew and called a wipe. Everyone did well at dying, thanks! We tried again and this time we got it.
Then on to the Lich King…. we decided to try to do him on Heroic and get the achievement at the same time. I wasn’t sure it would happen; it seemed like a little much. But the raid figured out the shadow traps fast so it was just us healers failing. I know I caused at least one wipe by letting Infest get out of control. Ugh. Finally after about four tries, we got it. Yay! Guild achievement, heroic kill, and a new title for everyone. Time to go to Dalaran for screenshots!
The heroes arrive near the fountain commemorating their victory!
We are in your deserted city making everyone else’s raid look way less cool.
Very fun! I love this mount.
