Iceshatter.... lvl 73 quest mob in Dragonblight. His Pulsing Shards DoT is supposed to do 375 per stack every 3 sec. It seems either bugged or un-squished as it did 5k per tic (4 stacks) on the attempt that killed me.... and then did 12.5k (5 stacks) on a second test fight after I died.
Although low level, I would warn for Humar the Pridelord, a rare lvl 18 black lion in Northern Barrens. He's located under a tree just north of Ratchet, surrounded by lots of other lions. I passed him on my 22 hunter (Rhoargh) and thought a quick rare kill would be some extra experience. I pulled him from a distance and killed him swiftly, but he has a nasty ability: he roars for help, pulling everything within 30 yards. Suddenly, I had 15 or more lions and cubs chasing me. Luckily I just got Aspect of the Cheetah which allowed me to sprint back to the safety of Ratchet, but as a melee class that could've been deadly. If you want to take him down, be sure to clear the adds first.
Ironman attempts since december 2012: - lvl 26 Undead hunter died to overconfidence (and Yetimus) - lvl 22 Pandaren Hunter (bugged quest, fell from a plane in Azshara) - lvl 20 Worgen Hunter (pet aggroed elite orcs in Redridge)

Devoured quest in Twilight Hihglands
Requires dying to complete.... real death not 'death'.
Twilight Highlands is doable up to that point for an Iron, but advise not even taking the quest as you will get stuck in combat and hearthing out will be tough with mobs spawning to attack you. I was lucky enough to get far enough away eventually and dodge a few attacks to manage a hearth out.
About as deadly of a quest as they get for an Iron.
In Ruins of Sha'naar in the southwest corner of Hellfire Peninsula the Illidari Taskmasters use Demoralizing Shout which considerably decreases attack power by ~250. On an ironman this renders any melee virtually powerless until it wears off (~30 second duration). The taskmasters are also always with two other Dreghood mobs and all hit ~200-300 per hit.
Almost got my warrior killed here, as the AP debuff also affects ignore pain.
There is also an elite NPC that patrols the area called Arzeth the Merciless.
acthelion: Hmmm.... well it's been interesting so far. It makes the game a lot different. But I assume the 4 quests are for class quests, that's what I'm treating them as. You might need to up the number of quests for Classic, but its still an interesting challenge.

acthelion: In any event, I'm happy to help you learn.

echogekkos: Into my first very first Ironman as a warrior! Couple close calls but still going strong. I'm 54 right now, but would you recommend Outland or Northrend once I'm 60? (may have to earn more gold as I only have 50gp to my name. not enough for flying)

rastafaria: question, before shadowlands release I took all the gear off of my greenman characters to reduce the risk of gear being changed with this xpac, but now they are yellow flagged? I just equipped all their gear and they are still flagged?

verik: Where would I find information on when I need to leave a zone while doing the Ironman challenge?

Xaya: using Chromie time, you can go just about anywhere. As you get higher, named mobs gets harder and harder, so you'll probably end up skipping them

listener: Can you remove yourself from a challenge? I have a red flagged Pacifist that I thought I could move to the Working Man, but I can only be on one challenge.
May 19, 2022 8:30:34 GMT -5
Xaya: sorry for the late reply, but if you log in with battlenet, on the 'My characters' page, you'll be able to remove the toon from a challenge
May 26, 2022 16:57:43 GMT -5
Xaya: of course the toon will have to be green or yellow flagged to register for the new challenge. If you can't register because of not enough kills, just kill mobs until you can register. Workingman must be registered at lvl 20 or below
