All you do here is blow ship up. After lots of blowing shit up, it’s time to blow up the boss, the Flame Leviathan.

Deathbringer Saurfang is a little bitch. He is described as being the Lich King’s most powerful death knight. He’s not too bad unless a raid member receives Saufrang’s Boiling Blood. This cast is completely random. Once applied to a party member, it cannot be dispelled or removed. So if a healer has boiling blood, you’re fucked. Normally when a high dps player receives this, heals can keep him alive. If the player dies there is no point to cast battle resurrection, as boiling blood remains on he/she and will probably kill him before heals can restore his life. Fail.

Muradin Bronzebeard yells: Move yer jalopy or we’ll blow it out of the sky, orc! The Horde’s got no business here!

This fight is fun! The airship fight is between the Skybreaker and Orgrim’s “Hammer.” Basically, knock his shit out of the sky. Along side the air battle, the raid team will deal with the enemy boarding the alliance ship. So to counter attack, a selected number of players will board his ship consisting (using jet-packs) of a tank and lots of damage-per-second (dps). This takes place a few times during the battle. I normally stand on the ships edge casting heals to the tank. Since Orgrim’s Hammer fires rockets towards the edge of the ship, I’m always moving my ass to avoid getting blown up.

This bitch isn’t that hard. She has this Mana Shield that protects her and converts damage taken to mana lost. Make sense? Once she has taken enough damage, putting her mana to zero, phase 2 starts. If the first phase takes longer than 7 minutes then there won’t be enough time to kill her as she will enrage. During the fight, mobs will spawn on the right and left (not at the same time). She drops a nice belt.

This is the first boss in the Icecrown Citadel raid. This is our group, the Anzacs, running a 10-man raid. I was the healer and it’s very difficult to heal the “tanks” as they take moderately-high damage (10-15k every second from Saber Lash). If you don’t move your ass, Marrowgar casts a Cold Fire that spreads everywhere. In the 25-man raid, he drops the shield I need⎯Bulwark of Smouldering Steel. Yes, I know, nerd talk again.
