Honestly? I agree with Matthew. Ulduar was #2 for me, I like ICC SO much more. Since I played Warcraft III, I have always wanted to take on Arthas, make him pay for all the misery he has caused Azeroth.(Spoilers for people who haven't been in ICC yet) You enter his stronghold, and the first thing you see in front of you, is a gigantic, monstrous, floating skeleton-like being.You then face a Lich that has become the new ruler of the Cult of the Damned, and you take her on, stopping her from creating new Cultists. You then run into the opposing faction, racing them to the top of the Citadel. After scaring off the opposing faction, you see him. Draenosh Saurfang, having had his soul stripped from him at the Wrathgate, now you have to fight him and kill him yourself, as his mind and soul belongs to who? Arthas.You enter the Citadel proper, and you have the choice of going forward, left or right. By going left, you find two horrible creations of the lead Professor of the Scourge, the one who has been creating all the plagues that you have encountered in Northrend. Going forward, you enter the Crimson Halls, to find the Queen of the San'layn resurrecting and empowering the three main Princes of the San'layn, ones you thought you had killed, you must now fight at the same time.You then find the Queen herself, Lana'thel, and while she corrupts your blood and attempts to turn you into a San'layn yourself, she still falls. You finally go to the right of the originally hallway, into the Frostwing Halls, you aid Argent Crusaders and the Champion of the Ebon Blade to destroy what some say is the strongest Val'kyr yet. You enter a large room, to find a Green Dragon being corrupted by the Scourge.You aid her in healing her wounds, and you continue on. You find Sindragosa's Lair, mother of all Frostwyrms, former consort of Malygos. You destroy two of her strongest children, Spinestalker and Rimefang, to which she becomes enraged and attempts to freeze the very flesh off your bone, but she again is no match for you.Finally, you climb to the top of the Citadel, to the Frozen Throne. Tirion issues the attack on Arthas, to which he becomes frozen in a block of ice. As you battle Arthas, he eventually grows tired of you, and ends your life quickly. As he begins to raise you as his storngest champions, Tirion uses the Light to shatter the frost tomb he was imprisoned in.He destroys Frostmourne, releasing all the souls Arthas has collected over the years, and his father, Terenas, appears, resurrecting the "Champions of the Light". As you resurrect, you finally finish off Arthas, and, as Yogg-saron said in Ulduar: "No king rules forever."THAT is why I like ICC way more, the Scourge has always been my favorite faction in the game, and finally being able to face off against Arthas and his strongest minions has made me one happy camper.TL;DR: ICC is awesome because I've always wanted to kill Arthas, and I finally get to do so.
