Icecrown Citadel is Last Major Raid

by on February 12, 2010

Arthas was defeated over a week ago now and since then the worlds top guilds have been ploughing their way through the hard mode versions of the Icecrown encounters. World beaters Paragon that claimed the first Lich King 25 man kill have defeated every boss up to the Lich King in the heroic mode of the instance which means they are one step away from defeating every raid encounter the Wrath of The Lich King expansion has to offer so far.

When the Icecrown Citadel raid encounter was released it was predicted that Blizzard would drag out the releasing of new boss encounters to prolong the life span of the expansion but now we know this is not the case. For the elite the end is nigh but with no Cataclysm beta announced it could be 5-10 months until we return to a completely new and broken Azeroth, of course the WoW community is sharp as ever asking the questions we seek the answers too. The big question is where do guilds go after Icecrown? Will there be another Sunwell like raid? Community manager Zarhym was on hand to give a response, hit the jump to see what he had to say.

As we stated before releasing Wrath of the Lich King, we still intend for Icecrown Citadel to be the final raid of the expansion in terms of tiered progression.

It would seem that Icecrown Citadel is the last major raid instance of the current expansion which will keep the average raiding guild going for a few months at least. With such a large window of time between now and the next expansion it is possible we will see a smaller raid encounter such as a new dragon encounter below Wyrmrest temple to keep the player base busy.
