The way into the Icecrown Citadel is now open. Gather your staunchest allies and face the foes within the icy halls of the Lich King’s lair.

Engage in twelve encounters across five wings within the Lich King’s stronghold. Players can undertake the challenge of this raid dungeon in either Normal or Heroic modes.   

The Shadowmourne Legendary quest chain is now available to Death Knights, Paladins, and Warriors who believe they have what it takes to wield this legendary two-handed axe. Begin your journey by reaching Friendly with The Ashen Verdict. You can then speak with Highlord Darion Mograine within the Icecrown Citadel raid dungeon to obtain the quest, “The Sacred and the Corrupt.” You’ll want the help of your allies to collect the components needed to forge this legendary weapon.
