Multiboxing Halls of Reflection (HOR) Icecrown 5man
Here is the second in a 3 part series of multiboxing Icecrown 5 man dungeons normal mode guides. You can see our other multiboxing video guides here. This time around we are doing Halls of Reflection (HoR). Our group consists of the following:
- 1x Druid Tank
- 3x Elemental Shaman
- 1x Restoration Shaman
Halls of Reflection (HoR) is essentially a single room with multiple waves of mobs before fighting 2 bosses, and ends with a run from the Lich King himself.
The fight starts out with Lady Sylvanas and yourselves in the very room with the Lich King’s sword, Frostmourne. Uther the Lightbringer appears to still be bound to the sword and he warns Sylvanas to quickly exit before the Lich King comes. There appears to be some foreshadowing when Uther mentions that there must always be a Lich King, and that the current Lich King is actually helping the people of world. “Without the control of the Lich King, the scourge of the world would overrun…”
Multiple waves of elites will come at your team at once which, if killed quickly enough, will offer you about 5 seconds to drink between fights to regain mana. My strategy was to put all my guys in the original tunnel that you came in from and simply tank and spank the waves of elites. Be careful to always have aggro on all the mobs or they will punk you caster/healers.
The fight against the dead captain is mostly about quick dispelling of magic debuffs. Impending Despair will stun its target after 3 seconds if not removed, and Quivering Strike will frequently drop the tank’s dodge by 20%. In addition, Defiling Horror will send the entire party fleeing in horror for 4 seconds, while taking damage, and Falric’s Hopelessness aura will reduce all players’ damage and healing done by 20% (Heroic: 25%), stacking up to 3 times.
Tank and spank for the most part with careful attention to regrouping after his Horror/Fear.
As Falric is more of a warrior-type of boss, Marwyn is similar to a death knight. He uses Obliterate frequently, and focuses on corruption attacks. He will occasionally spawn Well of Corruption underneath a player, which causes Corrupted Flesh, inflicting a Corrupted Touch DoT on its target. He will also cast a dangerous debuff called Shared Suffering which deals damage to a single player, though if dispelled the damage will be dealt to all players.
Again, tank and spank, and you really don’t need to put much effort into his DoT.
After the fight
Basically just follow the tunnel down to where Sylvanas is getting pwned by the Lich King. It is amazing that she actually got him down as far as she did. From here, you need to talk to her then run as fast as you can away from the former Arthas until a wall of ice will appear. Immediately turn around and then dish out some pwn to the mobs that the LK summons. Rinse and repeat until the 4th and final wall. From there, blow all your cooldowns once the multiple fat men appear, otherwise you may have trouble. From there simply run away and watch the forthcoming short cinematic.
Below is an entire, unedited video of the run.
