This is the reward for killing Algalon in Ulduar frst on your server. Algalon can be unlocked by defeating the 4 watchers with their hard mode active, and has been pre-emptiverly nicknamed 'Algalon the Raid Destroyer' by blue posters (he feeds on your tears!).
Like all Realm First raid achievements, you will recieve a title for slaying the final boss in the raid. In this case, the title is: "The Celestial Defender". Not only do you get the title, but a nice server-wide message stating your guild is broadcasted!
the message says "guild name" has earned the achievement x25 not player names.
I suspect that most guilds will forsake other hard modes, or variety in ulduar until this achieved. I like the fact that the title achievement is being made difficult... all you had to do for CoN title was be first guild to 80, that was not a matter of skill.
The way Blizz pushes this boss anything besides chainwiping for several IDs will be a disappointment.
Yes, even for guilds like Ensidia this boss needs to be a huge challange.
According to the guild Wraith (EU server Ysondre) as reported by MMO Champion.com, Algalon despawns after 1 hour of attempts, similar to Vaelastrasz did in Blackwing Lair.
To clarify: He can only been attempted
1 hour per raid week.
The icon for this achievement was the wrong one. :D
It could just be me, but this sounds like one, if not the most, amazing titles in the game.
The guild ensisdia has downed agalon they had many groups focusing on him
they downed him last week and got the Glory for The Ulduar Raider achievement
uhm, what does Participated means ? :S lol sounds stupid but i dont know what it means... XD
Was the first Guild to kill Algalon the Observer on June, 3rd 2009. They received the title reward: "The Celestial Defender." Here is a
to some of there other achievements as well a video of the Algalon battle.
Official as of June, 10th 2009
(25) of Sen'jin, the first guild across all (US) realms to defeat Algalon the Observer in Heroic difficulty! The characters who took part have each earned the title, "The Celestial Defender."
<get along gang> on shadowsong US, just got this. grats guys
Pretty pathetic that this title is only given to 25 people out of the thousands and thousands of people among each server, especially when those people have other titles to choose from. It really isn't fair to those people who can't get into guilds because of population or class needs, regardless of skill.
I saw this flash up in every chat channel last night, 1/27/2010, on the Nazgrel US server. Apparently when someone does it, WoW wants
to know . . .
At the end of WotLK I used this achievement to try to get into a pug bound for Ulduar hard modes.
I got rejected, they wanted a *real* achievement.
a guildy and I were doing a cross-server uld 25 hardmode raid yesterday and we downed algalon. I am waiting for the pre-mop patch to finish and i was looking at my feed on the blizzard site and it said "2 Realm First! Celestial Defender ". Server is down so i can't log in and double check, but is it possible we accually got a realm first achieve this long after release? We are on feathermoon..
Achievement is still attainable
To earn it you'll need to be very lucky, have strong partner, money for new account, and full control over your life.
First, you'll need to prepare. When you see that in next 90 days Blizzard will open new realm, you need to send invite to your friend for RaF.
Your friend should attach new wow account to he's existing battle.net account in order to get achievement on main character
. BattleChest should be activated also (now it contains WotLK, so you don't need to pay for another expansion as i do).
At second you'll need cleared Ulduar25 lockout, with Algalon and Yogg remained untouched. You'll use it for faster Ulduar at newly dinged lvl80 on new realm. You can also clear Sapphiron in Naxxramas25, but it's redundant as he is one-shot now. Don't forget to clear TotGC25 for Realm First! Grand Crusader (i cant say is it obtainable by my methodics now, didn't tried it)
So, you and your friend sitting with RaF-linked accounts and waiting for new realm to open.
When it does, you and your friend should create (
DO NOT TRANSFER
) characters on new realm, and level them with x3 asap.
Always choose PvE realm when it's possible (now, with cross-realm zones it will be pain in the ass to level up on PvP realm)
I advice you to level in heal+tank pair, but don't forget about DPS off-spec. Me and my friend leveled through LFD, with some quests 1-15 and 75-80. It would be redundant to describe leveling tactics, as you can find plenty of them over the Internet.
When you almost 80, ask someone on your main's realm to create raidgroup with PuGs. You should give your main's lockout to that raid, and join it on lvl80 on new realm with real-id. I think you'll get no problems with killing Algalon and Yogg with 0 keepers helping you, especially with lvl90 in your raid.
Once you and your friend ding 80, go and clear last bosses for achievements in preferable order (my first was Yogg... al that race was for Death's Demise title)
Remember: you need to do things fast as there can be competitors.
In my original guide was more info, but i cut it because of my bad English, and because it's very doubtfully that you'll need to buy new account in order to access new realms (Russian accounts cant access European realms -_-)

Energy @ Well of Eternity
Good luck with obtaining delicious titles!
