Plagueworks Wing Is Open For Plundering!
Any avid raider in World of Warcraft has been counting down the days when the second wing of Icecrown Citadel opens. So far players have only had the option to kill the first four bosses, which consisted of Lord Marrowgar, Lady Deathwhisper, a battle with the opposing team (either Horde or Alliance) on a Gunship, and then the newly turned Deathknight Deathbringer Saurfang.
On January 5th a new wing called Plagueworks is opening for 10 and 25 player mode. MMO-Champion has given a brief introduction into what the bosses look like and their abilities.
Additionally, it seems that players will only get 10 attempts to defeat Professor Putricide. This is in the same vein for the raid Trial Of The Crusade, and how defeating the dungeon in 50 perfect attempts yielded the best loot (and achievements!) For me, personally, none of the loot has me jumping for joy but I’ll be attending because each boss drops x2 Frost Emblems which players can use as currency to buy wicked sweet gear.
Also, let it never be said that Blizzard isn’t original in their designs! Why, notice the subtle difference in shading between Rotface and Festergut. Or how there are several of the same skins of a mad scientist roaming around Naxxramas, but Professor Putricide is at least x3 their size, therefore identifying his boss status. Keeping those designers on their toes.
