Must have 7 or more to be in raid formation so can't use mercs. Hail "A Trapped Wraithguard" in the center of the frozen lake near the spiders/goblin area for the following text.

a trapped Wraithguard says, "Please you must help me! I was scouting for the Wraithguard when I was captured by one of the creations of the vile Shade king. For the longest time we thought we were [safe] from the shades during the bright hours of the day. But it seems those days are over.

Tell a trapped Wraithguard, "safe?"

a trapped Wraithguard says, "Yes, until these ice golemns began emerging from the crypts the shades had no influence during the daytime. It appears though the Shade King has managed to create these golemns and imbue them with his will. This current one is the largest one I've yet seen. It appears to be holding me as bait to lure more of my brethren into a trap. You must [help] me and help prevent the death of my kin.

Tell a trapped Wraithguard, "help?"

a trapped Wraithguard says, "Hurry and free me before the golemn realizes what is happening!

The following emote zone will appear:
As you look around, some of the goblins in the immediate vicinity preparing to defend their home have fled to escape the fury of Avalanche.

Avalanche shouts, 'Haha! You are foolish to stay here and challenge me. If you do care to save your friend, it will cost you your life.

At this point, everyone in the raid will have a torch appear on thier cursor. They can run to the center of the goblin camps to light the fires with it

Successful lighting of a campfire will result in the following emote:
You ignite a campfire with a brilliant magical aura around it, capable of melting almost anything. You ignite the nearby campfire.

Three Shard of ice will spawn and rush a trapped Wraithguard. These are mezzable and have alot of HP's.

Once dead, another three Shard of ice will spawn and rush a trapped Wraithguard again. Same as the first wave.

Upon thier death, two block of ice will spawn and rush a trapped Wraithguard. At low HP's, they will split into two shard of ice again. Upon reaching low HP's they will begin to emote the following: shard of ice moves forward, silently moving over the ice, and then despawn.

The following emote zone will be given:

An enormous monstrosity rises up from beneath the icy surface of the lake.

Avalanche will then charge a trapped Wraithguard. At about 80% health, a trapped Wraithguard will join in the fight against Avalanche.
Two "A whirling blizzard" will spawn about midway through the fight and assist Avalanche.

Beat Avalanche down before a trapped Wraithguard dies. DO NOT let him die.
If he dies, you get the following emote:

Avalanche shouts, 'Aha! Down to the icy depths you go, Wraithguard! Watching you place your fate in the hands of puny, helpless comrades was most certainly a wise decision.'

3 items plus rk 3 spell turn in dropped. 350 hp/mana quality. Fun event. WTH are the torches for? We didnt know and lit the campfires...does avalanche suspose to come when ya do? Or does it have to do with the initial 3 adds or help make him weaker?

Spawned event after clearing trash. 3 mobs spawned attacked us and wraithgurad. A little tough. Also random number of toons in raid got a "flamed torch" 1 charge clicky (Promary or secondary slot equipable) that says in a sense "it will start fires in cold places). We killed 3 initial mobs and they spawned again. Tried clicking torches on mobs and dont work. Found various empty campfires in the valley and clicked on one of them during second wave of same initial mobs. It lit up! Entire raid that had torches found other extinguished fires and did the same. Killed that second wave and a NEW third wave spawn of 2 harder mobs. These now split into 2 when killed, Don't know if liting the fires had anything to do with getting these to spawn and not the same initial first 3 mobs. Killed this new second wave and avalanche spawned. Killed him and was very nice surprise to loot!

I got:

Little info for you, he is for sure a raid mob. In order to have him targetable you must have at least 7 people in a raid and hail the traped wraithguard. Upon hailing 3 ice pile type mobs pop, all 3 con red to a 75, hit me for up to 3800 each, was not disking, and unsure if rampages or not, we had 2 warriors including myself 16k hp and 2500ac. The Ice mobs will attack the wraithguard which must stay alive. As for avalanche itself.... no clue as to how hard it hits, would assume it hits as hard or harder than adds which normal hits were around 3200 unslowed peaking around 3800 and minimum hit of about 1400. I believe that after the adds are dead avalanche comes down off the cliff and becomes targetable. Not sure if adds are mezzable or kiteable, will try in future and will let you know later.
Look again

Is this really a raid mob? We once tried him with a single group and got him to about 30% before tank went down - I was healing (73 druid) and tank was only about 12k hp. Nothing spectacular had happened, I just couldn't heal fast enough on my own.

This is the ice golemn thing up by the spiders isn't it?

I think you must have encountered Glacier, which is a named icepile mob in roughly the same area. He is pretty rough too (red to 75), but one groupable with good tank and healer. Avalanche is unattackable until triggered, though you can see and target him up above the goblin camp. I couldn't get to where he is though.

if anyone /ooc in zone about Avalance being a incoming raid pull you might want to think about holding off pulls. Avalanche supposedly spawns a bunch of adds for the raid to deal with and severely lags the entire zone.

We stopped trying him for this reason... Is there any word as to whether or not this is still an issue? We haven't tried him in months now, and I'd like to call this event for us just to see what it holds and give us a change of pace... There was even one rumor flying around that the event was disabled due to the horrible lag issues... Can anyone confirm this?

Avalanche is at least level 79, (Yellow to 75 in the new con system) and is a raid encounter. Judging by his difficulty, I'd say he was level 80.
