the
Assembly of Iron while under the effect of an Iron Boot Flask



An extra easy achievement, simply travel to Storm Peaks and pick up
your Iron Boot Flask from Olut Alegut (H) or Rork Sharpchin (A) for 10
Relics of Ulduar. Be sure to carry it to raid with you,
perhaps
placing it on your action bar for easy access once the fight begins.
Once you reach the Assembly of Iron use your guild’s normal
strategy to kill them.When the last boss is at about 20% drink your
Iron Boot Flask turning yourself into a Dark Iron Dwarf. Finish off the
last boss and you will be awarded this achievement.

To gain this achievement, all that is needed is to defeat the Assembly
of Iron on their “normal” mode. This strategy is
already
laid out in the strategy portion of this guide, please refer to it href="http://www.tentonhammer.com/wow/guides/instances/ulduar/assemblyofiron/strategy"
target="_blank">here.

style="color: rgb(30, 66, 137);">



The Assembly of Iron is already a difficult fight, and taking it one
step towards hard mode will make your raid work even harder. Runemaster
Molgeim will start out with the Runic Barrier and Rune of Power
abilities which should be avoided as normal. Take down Steelbreaker
first, pulling him to the front of the room while your OT holds the
other bosses at the back of the room. Once he is dead, have your MT run
back and pick up Stormcaller Brundir. Runemaster Molgeim will now be
able to cast  Rune of Death which is in essence a large green
void
zone. Burn down Stormcaller Brundir, but be sure to save most cool
downs for Molgeim. When Stormcaller Brundir is dead all DPS and tanks
should move to  Molgeim. Molgeim will now be able to cast Rune
of
Summoning which summons Lightning Elementals bent on suicide as they
will eventually explode with Lightning Blast an  AoE damage
spell.
Please note that these elementals will target anything including
totems, and pets.



The Rune of Summoning will be randomly cast at a player in the raid
next to the spot they are standing in. Immediately have your entire
raid move far away from the Rune (and repeat each time a new rune is
cast), but still allowing ranged DPS to be in range of the rune. Your
ranged DPS will be in charge of AoEing down the adds that pop out of
the Rune, any spells that slow should be used here as often as
possible. Once the adds are dead, the ranged should move back to
Molgeim until another Rune spawns. This will be the time to pop all
cool downs available. Killing Molgeim quickly is the key, allowing him
to be alive to long will allow for mistakes which will in turn wipe
your raid.

Choose You, Steelbreaker

style="margin-left: 40px; text-align: left;"> style="font-style: italic; color: rgb(30, 66, 137);">Defeat
the
Assembly of Iron  with Steelbreaker as the last member alive



Be afraid, very afraid. This will open up hard mode in the Iron Council
encounter.



To start off this fight, the MT should pick up Runemaster Molgeim and
Steelbreaker leaving the OT to manage Stormcaller Brundir. The MT will
need to maintain agro on both bosses, but the raid should focus damage
on Runemaster Molgeim first. While tanking these two, the MT will have
to be aware of Fusion Punch which will need dispelled as quickly as
possible (a paladin tank who can dispel themselves would be helpful
here) and Rune of Power. If Rune of Power is cast under either of the
bosses, the MT must move them out of it or risk a wipe.  Once
Runemaster Molgrim is dead all DPS should spread out and proceed to
kill Stormcaller Brundir. Be sure to run out of Overload, and assign
one person to interupt Lightning Whirl and he will die quickly and
easily.



Now it will be time to focus on finishing off the fight and killing
Steelbreaker. He will now have Fusion Punch, High Voltage, Static
Disruption (AoE and nature vulnerability spell), and Overwhelming Power
which increases a players damage, but cases a Meltdown after 1 minute
(30 seconds in 25 man) killing that player. Meltdown will also
do 
AoE damage since it can only be cast on the main target of Stormcaller
when the tank is ready to explode melee and other tanks should move
away.  He also gains a stacking +25% damage buff and heals for
15%
of his max HP for each player killed including those who die from
Meltdown.



Allow the tank with the poorest gear to tank the boss first, although
be sure the tank does not have Static Disruption when picking up the
boss. This spell combined with Fusion Punch will one shot any tank.
Once the boss is picked up, this fight becomes an all out DPS
race.  Use all cool downs including Bloodlust/Heroism and nuke
the
boss until the current tank dies from Meltdown. All melee should be
prepared to make a run for it when the tank is close to exploding. When
that tank dies, the boss will gain health and get a damage boost as
stated above. Hopefully at this point Steelbreaker will be at roughly
20%-45%, depending on your raids DPS abilites.



The next tank will move in to pick up the boss and DPS should start
back up immediately. The second tank (more tanks will be needed for 25
man) will need to use all cool downs available to survive the damage
increase now in effect. Continue to DPS the boss and finish him off
before the final tank dies from Meltdown and you will have completed
Iron Council on hardmode and gotten yourself an achievement and extra
loot in the process.

the
Assembly of Iron without allowing Stormcaller Brundir to
damage anyone
with Chain Lightning or Lightning Whirl



The easiest way to do this achievement is to kill Stormcaller first,
using one of the strategies above so he never gains the Lightning Whirl
ability. A prot warrior carefully rotating stuns/interrupts should be
able to keep Chain Lightning from being cast, although a DK or Rogue
could also be used to be sure that is never gets cast.



Be aware of interrupt cool downs, and if the person(s) assigned to
interrupt are on their toes you will have this achievement in the bag.
