Hello, everyone I am going to organize a Herald of the Titans run and Im looking for people who are interested in doing it.
Herald of the Titans
Defeat Algalon the Observer in 10-player mode at level 80 without anyone in the raid wearing any equipment with an item level higher than is available in 10-player Ulduar
Even though this became a Feat of Strength in Cataclysm, it is still obtainable so long as all raid members are level 80 (proof: Aelobin - The Maelstrom (EU)).
Both the achievement and title are account wide since patch 5.0.4
Here's some useful information for those who are attempting this in Cataclysm:
The key is no longer required to open the door to his room
The 1 hour time limit has been removed, so you can fight him for as long as you like
Armour items must be ilvl 226 or less, and weapon items (mainhand/offhand/ranged) must be ilvl 232 or less
It doesn't matter where your gear is from, so long as it meets the above criteria
Epic gems are allowed
Reforging is allowed (this includes mastery!)
Heirlooms are allowed (although you shouldn't really be using them)
The Cata leg enchants, MoP profession enchants and Savage Armor Kits are all allowed
You can use Cataclysm consumables (flasks/potions/food/ Adventurer's Journals)
The hardest part about getting this title is finding 10 level 80s with the correct level of gear (or time/motivation to farm the gear). It's a great advantage to have a shadow priest to soak all the Big Bangs with Glyph of Dispersion, but a fire mage (with Cauterize) or rogue (with Feint, Glyph of Cloak of Shadows, and/or Cheat Death) work well too.
Healing isn't too hard with 2 tank healers (especially if one is a pally and/or disc priest) and if the collapsing stars are killed at safe times. Average DPS needs to be around 5k each, which is a very easy benchmark to reach with consumables/buffs/reforging.
If you're looking for gear, a good place to start is the JP vendors and craftable items. You can then pick up some easy 219s from the ICC 5mans and ToC5 heroic, along with some 232 weapons from ToC10, Ony10 and the ICC5 mans on heroic.
Here's something I got from a guildie, who got it somewhere from the forums. Quick list of where to go farm, and where not to.
OK to Use:
- All Ulduar 10 normal loot and below (219)
- All Ulduar 10 hard mode loot (226 armor, 232 weapons/ranged)
- All Ulduar 25 normal loot (226 armor, 232 weapons/ranged)
- All weapons/ranged from ToC10 normal (232) <--- This has been confirmed by people who have gotten it with these items
- All Ulduar craftable gear (226)
- All emblem of conquest gear (226)
- Anything from ToC 5 man heroic (219)
- Weapons from ICC 5 mans heroic (232)
- Items from ICC 5 man regular (219)
Not OK to Use:
- Any armor from ToC10 normal (232)
- Any Ulduar 25 hard mode loot (239)
- Anything from ToC10 hard (245/258)
- Anything from either version of ToC25 (245/258/272)
- ToC craftables (245)
- Emblem of Triumph gear (245)
- Regular armor from ICC 5 man heroic (232)
From what I read this achievement its quite easy now a days since MoP hit. The hardes part about this is gearing up for it. My idea is to get about 15 people going (yes I know we can only take 10 to do achievement). I will do ulduar runs starting sunday december 2 at 7pm pacific time. And what we can do if I have the 15 people by then is do two ulduar runs. 7 people with their mains 7-8 people with their 80s. And we do another run, the other way around. We can do the same for Nax and I guarantee within two weeks we will be ready to do this.
Since only 10 people will be able to do the achievement the first time. if we gear up this way I am going to need some people who get the achievement the first time to come back the week after so we can get it for the other five.
Leave me a message here if you are interested with ur battlenet tag. If you have a level 80 geared and ready also leave me ur tag,
if everything goes as planned with the gearing and i get enough interest we should be ready to do this by december 16 fisrt run and december 23 for the second run.
Thank you everyone!
Sorry for the necro but is this still building up? I have a DK tank that has half BIS and something from Uld for every other slot. Been saving him from leveling for this very purpose. Please let me know if you are, happy to talk on realID or in here, DK is "stormywaters" on Darkspear
