So if you’re like me and now have become tranq bitch on Lich King, here’s a macro that may help you out:
#showtooltip Soothe/use [@mouseover,harm][@focus,harm]Soothe
This macro will prioritize mouseover, then focus, then target. This will allow you to focus one shambling and still potentially tranq the other by mousing over it. If you don’t have a mouseover or a focus, it’ll tranq your current target.
I also use the following macro to set my focus. It’ll attempt to focus the mouseover target, and if you don’t have one, will focus your current target.
I know I’m way behind the curve on this, but I just returned to raiding this week after a 5 month hiatus. I was able to get in on our ICC25 clear this week, and I can finally strut my feathers around random heroics with my “Light of Dawn” title.
If you haven’t had a chance to do Lich King in any form, I suggest you try to find some sort of group or guild that can. I personally think it’s the most fun (and diverse) fight in the game, and heroic is just a blast.
We killed Lich King on 25man tonight, after many many hours perfecting (and I use that word loosely), phase 3. I must say it’s probably the most fun I’ve ever had in any single encounter, and for the most part, redeems Icecrown Citadel for me. The really amazing thing is how they’ve made a role for all classes, including us moonkin. We bring much value to the fight, and I’ve had those in my guild tell me if I hadn’t been there they wouldn’t have killed it.
The essentials: [item]Glyph of Starfall[/item] helps a lot. But what you REALLY need is [spell]Glyph of Typhoon[/spell], unglyphed, so you can knock back the vile spirits in phase 5. It makes them so much more manageable. The daze also helps slow the Val’kyr when they land so stuns can be put out easier.
NOTE: The mobs in phase 1 ARE able to be knocked back, so you probably do NOT want to use Typhoon there.
I’ll post a kill shot once it becomes available.

This is the 10man list.
10man items to note:
[item]51799[/item] (Heroic: [item]51943[/item])
[item]51803[/item] (Heroic: [item]51939[/item])
25man items to note:
[item]50429[/item] (Heroic: [item]50731[/item])
[item]51939[/item] appears to be best in slot, however if you manage to kill 25man heroic Arthas, [item]50734[/item], the healing mace, may be a better option just because of the insane stats on it.
I have sources outside of MMO Champion that are reporting that the Lich King will not be available next week when 3.3.2 goes live, and only Dreamwalker and Sindragosa will be available. We may have to wait another 2 weeks for the Lich King (and then another week for heroics). Heroics will utilize the same raid ID as the normal raid, so you won’t be able to do both, unlike Trial of the Crusader.
The Lich King becomes available in two weeks. Are you ready?
