The adds are what you actually fight in the fight and they are brought into the encounter by Summon Undead.

Lumbering Abominations - High hp elite mob, they have a Cleave ability and a Vomit ability, making standing in front of them dangerous.
Risen Witch Doctors - Elite spell caster mobs, who uses Shadow Bolt, Shadow Bolt Volley and Curse of Doom.


You never actually fight the Lich King here, you must merely escape from him alongside side Lady Jaina Proudmoore/ Lady Sylvanas Windrunner.

As you flee, the Lich King will follow you at a slow pace, surrounded by Remorseless Winter aura. He is slow, and you must not let him catch up to you or he will use Fury of Frostmourne which automatically kill anybody in his aura.

As you start gaining ground on him, he'll use Summon Ice Wall to block your path, Lady Jaina Proudmoore/ Lady Sylvanas Windrunner will than start to bring down the wall. The Lich King will use Summon Undead and send his undead to you, which you will need to kill. The wall will come down when you kill last undead.

Each new wall, will bring a new wave of undead and they ramp up in difficulty as you go along. You need to do this 5 times.

You'll be facing 3 different type of undead. The ghouls are fairly easy to dispatch and don't deal much damage. The Witch Doctors are casters, so you may need to silence them as they'll tend to hang back and cast spells, which gives you less room to play with when the Lich King gets close. The most dangerous type however are the Abomination. They have massive hp and can deal great damage to anyone standing in front of them, the tank need to be sure they are tanked facing away from the party.
