Argent Tournament Guide v2.0 (or 3.2?)
2009/08/13 at 7:57 AM
This guide is a continuation of the old
Argent Tournament Guide
Secrets of Ulduar
brought us quite an event - quests, daily quests, unique rewards, Seals system...and now the
Call of the Crusade
expands that. Most of the 3.2 content requires you to have obtained the title Crusader through
Exalted Argent Champion of the Alliance
Exalted Argent Champion of the Horde
, while the others only need you to be Exalted with either
The Silver Covenant
. If you are new to the Argent Tournament, please visit the first part of the guide for details, guides and detailed explanation of the mechanics, quests and rewards.

Archivist of Ulduar, Auriaya
unfortunately bears no resemblance to the
in Diablo III.
Actually, scratch that. Sonic Screech looks like
makes me think of Sentinel Blast, and
is kind of like Terrifying Screech. But
I have found myself with some time in my hands, and nothing in particular to do, so I thought I'd put another Strategist together. Hoping that somebody actually reads and uses these... ;)
Also, before I actually start writing, I will have you know that this boss is actually rather hard for my guild. I think we might be doing something wrong - it's not that the strategy doesn't work, it's just messy.

Slow internet, sitting out of raids this week, poor weather for going out... Which means more Strategists this week!
A little known fact about
- Brann Bronzebeard wiped on him. So you better read carefully and not repeat the dwarven explorer's mistake. In addition to this, Kologarn is a mandatory boss, whom you need to kill in order to reach the Keepers' sanctums. And then Yogg-Saron. His dead body will become the bridge to the Observation Ring, and Ulduar's archivist - Auriaya. Body crafted personally by Ignis the Furnace Master, who hopefully lies dead by his forge by the time you get to Kologarn. You are quite a decimating group of raiders, aren't you? :)
Strategist: Assembly of Iron
2009/07/26 at 5:50 PM
Well, I did earn
The Siege of Ulduar
, did I not? Made an entry for each one of the Siege bosses, that I did. Made me wonder how adequate the term "siege" is, when the only Expedition forces are in the base camp and around Razorscale - looks we've been
Ulduar, not besieging it. But that's just my thoughts :)
So this time it's the
Assembly of Iron
. What many people call '
the Iron Council
'. The three Iron Generals represent each of the iron races in the Iron Army (they also love iron).
, the biggest and physically strongest of them all, is an Iron Giant with colossal strength.
is an Iron Vrykul, who has mastered the art of rune magic.
is an Iron Dwarf with a master's touch in the lightning magic, who hates being mocked for his height.
The Assembly of Iron has taken residence in the left wing of the Antechamber of Ulduar, j
Strategist: XT-002 Deconstructor
2009/07/24 at 6:22 PM
Time to deconstruct another boss' strategy! Har har har!
I love silly jokes. They make me... silly. But it's true -
is the subject of today's Strategist. Similarly to the other Ulduar bosses, not a whole lot is known XT, other than the fact that he is the last boss in the Siege of Ulduar, he is a mandatory fight, and his voice is the single reason people wipe on him.
XT-002 is located in the Scrapyard, between the Formation Grounds and the Antechamber of Ulduar. He is another one of
's creations, whom XT considers to be his father. Hence the boyish voice, the diligent exercise and dutiful guard. You need to defeat XT in order to proceed further in Ulduar, even if you skip the optional Ignis and Razroscale. The Deconstructor also has a hard mode.
And now, skipping over the break, let's take a look at He-who-does-not-drop-my-
Strategist: Ignis the Furnace Master
2009/07/22 at 1:00 AM
Hello, folks! My name is
not important. What is important is that I have finally put together an Ignis guide. Many of you probably have the old giant on farm, but for those who don't - and the future generations - here it is!
Ignis the Furnace Master
is fire giant, located in Ulduar. It is unknown whether he was there originally, or if he was brought by
(although I prefer the former), but one thing is certain - he works for
just as much as Loken did. He is the one who crafted Razorscale's metal armor, and the one who created Kologarn, literally from a chunk of stone. You can find him in his Colossal Forge, on the opposite side of Razorscale.
Not intended to make fun of Dorkins. I love the opening :)

Welcome back to the Strategist (or just "welcome", if it's your first time here)! A while ago I went over the
fight in Ulduar. This week I hope to give you not only
(which you will read about in this issue), but
Ignis the Furnace Master
Razorscale is...was a Proto-drake better known under the name Veranus. She was a Broodmother among the Proto-drakes, and has been
's loyal mount and friend for many years. Unfortunately when Loken defeated Thorim not that long ago, Veranus was captured, but not killed - Loken mentions that he has other plans for her. Now we know what they were - Ignis the Furnace Master crafted an armor of some sort for Veranus. Her scales were plated with steel as sharp as razor - hence the name. Now Razorscale lives in her Aerie in Ulduar, just between the Formation Grounds and the Scrapyard. She is an optional boss, but not a hard one.

Strategist: Flame Leviathan

Welcome to my new series in the Wowhead Blog - the
has heard me, on many occasions, complain how the Overview section on all of the Ulduar bosses is just...not enough. They are all too complex to be explained by a single paragraph or by a list of their spells. This worked well with Naxxramas, because many people were familiar with the fights, and the actual fights were not overly complicated. Unfortunately, Ulduar is far from simple...
And this is how the Strategist was born! Partly inspired by
The Eye of Eternity: A Raid Overview
blog entry, party my own musing, the Strategist will present you with a strategy (or multiple strategies when applicable) for each of the bosses in the titanic complex... and other raids as well, if things go well. Hard Modes will be covered as well, but knowing that my own guild is still struggling with about half of them, those sections may be a little vague, or even missing.
But enough with the introductions! Read on, and learn about the first boss

Children's Week 2009 (May 1 - May 7) - Quest Guide + Information!
2009/05/01 at 2:21 PM
Seldom in the World of Warcraft do we think that war is at hand, and for every fallen hero, there are a hundred commoners and civilians slain by beasts, agents of the Scourge, agents of the Old Gods, or even members of the opposite faction! In days like this, we, the heroes of Azeroth should take a bit of extra responsibility and do something beyond holding the monsters at bay, beyond slaughtering them, or restoring the health of our troops: we should take care of the numberless orphans left in the wake of this war.
Children's Week is upon us! A week in which we brave face a challenge greater than any undead monstrosity, a task more daunting than saving the world. We must become parents for all those orphans throughout Azeroth and make sure they are happy. We can't tank a child's fears, we can't heal its memories of pain, nor can we DPS the sorrow out of them. So equip your toys, make a mage conjure a candy table, fill your quiver with joy, load your gun with something colorful, and venture into the World of Parenting!

The cold winds of the north blow over the frigid icy glaciers of
. The sun barely reaches the frozen lands with its rays. The Lich King gathers his power, his Scourge minions planting destruction everywhere. Bloodthirsty Vrykul shout promises to eviscerate adventurers too foolish to enter their lands. Yet, in the northernmost corner of the great glacier, something defies the self-proclaimed true king's threats. Workers' sweat flows like rivers, as hired hands build a Coliseum. Mounts scream in pain or triumph as their riders - men and women representing all the peoples of Azeroth - fight to prove their worthiness to members of the

Despite the imminent danger of the Lich King, despite the hatred between King Varian and Garosh Hellscream, and despite the weather for which "harsh" would be a soft word, the heroes of Azeroth battle to determine who will face the h
