ICC Preview: Lord Marrowgar

This is real simple, if you don’t want to know squadoosh about the Icecrown Citadel raid then don’t bother reading this article.  My definition of a spoiler, however, is going into a raid encounter not knowing what to do, so I’ve been doing a little homework on the first four bosses that will be available when patch 3.3 is released.

Today’s article is about Lord Marrowgar, one of the first bosses you’ll face.

Here is a video from one of the PTR encounters.  It’s also featured in the pre-guide from Tank Spot.  Based on what I’ve read so far, this seems like a pretty straight forward introductory encounter.  It looks as if competent raid groups should be able to take him down on their initial attempts.  He is also one of the bosses featured in the new weekly raid quests.


My Thoughts for Hunters

  • We’ll need to be on the lookout for Cold Flames that shoot out.  As ranged we should have plenty of time to avoid them.
  • We need to be ready to dps folks trapped in the Bone Spike Graveyard.
  • We need to move out of the way of his whirlwind while still watching out for Cold Flames.
  • No CC or adds to deal with so it’s pretty much about raid awareness.


Things a Hunter might want.
