Icecrown Rares

Icecrown is composed of solid ice and home to the Frozen Throne and Icecrown Citadel. Due to the heavy Scourge presence in Icecrown, both the Horde and the Alliance use flying gunships as their base of operations instead of the traditional ground base. There are also quest chains covering the Scarlet Onslaught’s final outpost, as well as the presence of the corrupted Vrykul. Players normally return to the zone at max level for the Argent Tournament – a daily quest hub that has many vanity rewards, pets and mounts.

  • High Thane Jorfus – a death knight found patrolling The Fleshwerks, Sindragosa’s Fall or the courtyard by Icecrown Citadel.
  • Hildana Deathstealer – a val’kyr who floats around Ymirheim and Jotenheim.
  • Putridus the Ancient – a huge Scourge giant that patrols around the Bombardment and Icecrown Citadel. His hitbox is so big, you can target him from Dalaran and other zones.

One of my favourite rares and one who surprised Cool and I while were were doing the mini ring of blood in the area. We were mid fight 2P’ing one of the mini bosses and she floated into the ring. Luckily no one else was around but I quickly tagged her while we finished off the mini boss and then added her to the tally.
