Lord Marrowgar is the first boss of the Icecrown Citadel raid. Pieced together by the Lich King from the bones of a thousand vanquished adventurers, he is the guardian of the Frozen Throne within The Spire and wields the power of the throne itself.
This boss tests if the raid is able to survive the Icecrown Citadel raid. If the boss wipes the raid, then the raid will probably not survive the other Citadel bosses. His trademark attacks are Bone Storm and Bone Spike Graveyard. He has an enrage timer (10 min), which is a lot of time, so it is not exactly a DPS race as much as a Battle for survival.
The fight consists of two phases, which repeat until you kill the boss. At the start of the fight, all of your tanks have to run together to the boss because they have to split Bone Slice damage, otherwise you will risk your main tank dying. Your tanks should always stay together because you can decrease the damage of Bone Slice. The whole raid should stand in melee range because you don’t get hit by the Coldflame there. Hunters can’t do that because they aren’t able to shoot at the boss from there, so they have to stand a little bit behind the raid and they should always avoid the Coldflame.
In constant intervals, Lord Marrowgar will use Bone Spike Graveyard ability to impale three targets. All melees should deal damage to Bone Spike Graveyard. Use abilities like Cleave, Swipe, Fan of Knives and in general all possible AOE effects. If one of your Hunters or casters gets Bone Spike Graveyard, your ranged damage dealers are the best option to kill it since it’s useless for all your melees to run away from the boss. As soon as you see that Bone Storm is about to come, start to spread in the room. It’s possible for someone to get hit by Bone Spike Graveyard when Bone Storm is about to start. Kill these spikes as fast as possible! How needs to work Bone Storm, even if it doesn’t work like all the time – When Bone Storm starts, it selects the target that stands farthest away. After he reached that target, he spawns Coldflame and this “cycle” repeats until Bone Storm ends. Due to the fact that you know how Bone Storm works, you can avoid raid damage by parking raid member on each of the four walls of the room. All other raid members have to avoid Coldflame and kill Bone Spike Graveyard. During Bone Storm, your priests can use Divine Hymn. The damage is sometimes very high there. This battle is one of the hardest for each healer because highly damage and moving during almost all battle. In most of the situations – lag, spike or low FPS = DEATH.
