Strategy Guide

FIGHT OVERVIEW
  • The fight has one single phase with frequent [ultimate] ability use.

  • Your goal is to maximise your DPS by leveraging the different buffs each NPC gives you.

  • The priority should be to free them and any player frozen later in the fight.

Phase 1

Free the NPCs & players and don't get frozen by Flash Freeze.

Flash Freeze
9s Cast

At the end of the cast (9 seconds), all the players not standing on a pile of snow are frozen and incapacitated.


To counter this, when the boss starts casting, look for where big piles of snow will spawn on the room, get nearby and climb on them ONCE the snow is there.

Conjure Toasty Fire
Protection And Damage Aura

Sets down a fire on the ground. It removes stacks of Biting Cold to players nearby and grants a chance to proc extra damage and stack a 2% magical damage taken debuff on the boss. This stacks up to 30 stacks (60% magical damage increase).


Make sure to have all ranges next to these, making the boss vulnerable is high priority.

EVERYONE

PASS THE BUFF EFFICIENTLY
