With Patch 3.3, three new five man dungeons are available. These are Forge of Souls, Pit of Saron, and Halls of Reflection. With these new dungeons come a few new achievements, both for completing the dungeons as well as a few extra for special conditions during heroic boss fights.
In Forge of Souls, there are achievements for completing the normal and heroic difficulties of the instance, which requires defeating Bronjahm and the Devourer of Souls. The special achievement for Bronjahm is Soul Power, which requires your group to defeat him on heroic while there’s still 4 Corrupted Soul Fragments alive. To do this, you will have to wait until Bronjahm casts Corrupt Soul four times in order to produce four soul fragments. However, while doing this, you must also kite the boss and try to CC the fragments, as he has an ability to consume soul fragments. Also make sure not do be doing too much AoE attacks, as the fragments do not have a whole lot of health.
The second achievement is on the other boss in the instance, and it is called Three Faced. Devourer of Souls will cast Phantom Blast occasionally, though probably quite a few times during the fight. In order to get this achievement, you must interrupt all of these casts, very similar to Less-rabi in Gundrak.
The Pit of Saron (normal | heroic) contains three bosses, two of which have their own achievements. Forgemaster Garfrost has the achievement Doesn’t Go to Eleven, which requires you to defeat him without allowing anyone to have more than 10 stacks of the Permafrost debuff. In order to do this, you must go out of line of sight by going behind the saronite boulders that he throws occasionally, and for the tank to do this when he gets to 66% and 33% at which points he runs to a forge and switches weapons.
The other achievement in this instance involves the cave run before the fight against Scourgelord Tyrannus. Don’t Look Up is fairly easy to obtain as long as your group is aware of the circles on the ground and doesn’t stand in them until after the icicle hits the ground. You can do this simply by watching out for them as you fight through the cave, or by pulling the entire cave to the end and burning them down there, as the icicles do not drop near that end area.
Finally, in the Halls of Reflection (normal | heroic), there is an achievement called We’re Not Retreating; We’re Advancing in a Different Direction for escaping from the Lich King in under 6 minutes. This refers to the guantlet event after defeating Falric and Marwyn, in which there are three ice barriers that you have to run to and then defeat the adds that the Lich King spawns. Do this quickly enough and you’ll have another shiny new achievement.
And that wraps up the achievement list for the new Icecrown Citadel 5-man dungeons. Work continues on our tour of the General tab, and I intend to also cover some of the achievements to be had in the new raid instance as well. Happy hunting and I’ll see you again soon!
