How to Beat Thurn Dreamreader

The Chef

The Chef
Dark Alliance - The Chef
Quest Verbeeg Jamboree
Act A Feast for All Cretins
Description
Few things can unnerve the steely heart of dwarves, but among those of Clan Battlehammer, one of the most terrifying sounds is that of a boiling pot of verbeeg stew. And of course, nothing attracts a verbeeg like the smell of dwarf stew over the fire.
The Chef, as he was known to his kind, had a recipe for dwarf stew like no other. A legendary dish. Yet, dwarf is hard to come by and so few verbeeg in Icewind Dale ever had the chance to sample it. Perhaps, in part, that is how the legend grew. The key, some said, was that chef was always careful not to poke too many holes in the dwarf's shell, lest all the juice leak out. Boiled in the shell was best to keep the moist and the flavor concentrated.
As for the other ingredients, alas, for the verbeeg, Chef has made his last pot and his secrets have died with him.

The Chef possesses many of the same moveset as other Verbeegs, but he has more health and his abilities are imbued with Flames so extra caution is needed. The combat area's fire hazards must also be taken into account, as one wrong step into the flames could lead to your demise.

Skornn Soulreaver

Skornn Soulreaver
Dark Alliance - Skornn Soulreaver
Quest The Order of the Light
Act An Infernal Dispute

Skornn Soulreaver is a Frost Giant who wields an axe and can deal heavy damage. However, his massive size means his moves are very slow and easy to dodge. Evade his attacks well and you'll be able to defeat him handily.

Akar Kessell

Akar Kessell
Dark Alliance - Akar Kessell
Quest The Order of the Light
Act Return of the Tyrant
Description
Akar Kessell was a young man with no talent, no skills, and an entitled personality that endeared him to no one. After killing his mentor, the only many who'd ever given him a chance, Kessell stumbled upon and claimed the Crystal Shard. Or did it claim him?
Drunk with power, Kessell used the artifact to launch a war on Icewind Dale, but thanks to the efforts of the Companions, he was defeated. Kessell and the Shard disappeared under an avalanche. The Shard was lost and Kessell presumed dead. But then a cult of mages who worship the shard, the Order of the One Light, found and resurrected Kessell...in a way. They turned him into an undead being possessing immense magical powers he never could master in life. And in this new state of being, bitter and resentful, and still retaining all the pettiness he had in life, he attempted to regain his former glory.
But once again, the Companions stood in his way. Kessell was defeated once again, and hopefully, for the last time.

Akar Kessell is a Cultist who can cast a variety of lethal spells from any range. He must be defeated five times because he has the ability to resurrect.

Kelvin

Kelvin
Dark Alliance - Kelvin
Quest The Mask of Kelvin
Act The Face of Kelvin
Description
Kelvin was a powerful frost giant jarl who forged an empire thousands of years ago. The center of his kingdom was the area that is now known as Icewind Dale.
He was a mighty warrior, but was also persuasive and insightful, far beyond most frost giants. He united the frost giant tribes, and convinced some cloud giants and stone giants joined his cause. He married the cloud giant named Baromassa and made her flying city his capital. Obsessed wit the lost giant kingdom of Ostoria, Kelvin searched their ruins for powerful artifacts like the great helmet that become known as the "Mask of Kelvin." Kelvin was also the last known mortal to wield Crenshinibon, the Crystal Shard, before Akar Kessell. Kelvin's ultimate goal was to overthrow the ordning, the hierarchy of all giants set in place by their gods. In order to achieve this, he attempted to ascend to godhood himself, but was struck down by Tempus, the god of war.
The spirit of Kelvin lives on with his tomb deep under Kelvin's Cairn, kept subdued by wards laid by clerics of Tempus.

Kelvin is the strongest version of the Frost Giant you will fight. As a Frost Giant, he is a bit slow compared to other enemies but will be the fastest Frost Giant compared to the rest.

How to Beat Kelvin

Crystalline Dreams Bosses

Arim the Bonescribe

Arim the Bonescribe
Dark Alliance - Arim the Bonescribe
Quest Crystalline Dreams

Fenji Coldeye

Fenji Coldeye
Dark Alliance - Fenji Coldeye
Quest Crystalline Dreams
Act Crystal Harvest

Fenji Coldeye will have the same attack patterns and behavior as other Frost Giants that you have come across, but will be stronger and will have a tough posse surrounding him.

How to Beat Fenji Coldeye

Hagedorn

Hagedorn
Dark Alliance - Hagedorn
Quest Crystalline Dreams
Act A Crystal Crown
Description
From deep within his secret lair, Hagedorn heard a faint ancient voice call to him. The voice beckoned, pleading to pledge its ancient god-like powers to any unimaginable goals the beholder dreamed.
With his crippling paranoia suppressed by his ravenous hunger to wield such power, Hagedorn followed the shard's instructions to Icewind Dale. But when he arrived, he found only chaos and no Shard. His ego was greatly insulted that Crenshinibon did not immediately reveal itself to him, the Shard's chosen one, so he retreated to the Kelvin's catacombs with a new purpose. With plenty of miserable duergar scrambling around, an isolated squad were easily subjugated by the threat of his legendarily deadly eyestalks. His new minions were ordered to mine Kelvin's ancient city of its chardalyn crystals and harvest the crystal remnant remains from his Crystal Towers. Hagedorn then used his dark magic to craft crystalline antennae that would focus the power of his dreams. And it was working. A Crystal Shard was indeed manifesting.
But before the device was completed, before Hagedorn could begin his reign of domination, the Companions defeated the beholder and Hagedorn slipped away into his own dream.

Hagedorn is a unique boss, that has no other monsters like it in the game. It is a Beholder that can have both close-range and long-range attacks. As a Beholder, it has powerful magic attacks that can make this battle a tough fight.

How to Beat Hagedorn

The Fury of Icewind

Narf Twelvefingers

Narf Twelvefingers
Dark Alliance - Narf Twelvefingers
Quest The Fury of Icewind
Act The Hunting Grounds

Narf Twelvefingers is a goblin that shouldn't pose much of a threat if he was by himself. Unfortunately, he will not be alone in this fight. Taking out the rest of the enemies before dealing with him will give you the easiest time to defeat him.

How to Beat Narf Twelvefingers

Bjorn, The Hewer of the Judged

Bjorn, The Hewer of the Judged
Dark Alliance - Bjorn, The Hewer of the Judged
Quest The Fury of Icewind
Act The Hall of Judgement

Bjorn is a stronger version of Frost Giants. What makes this fight more difficult is having to deal with the Judged Spirit Wraith that can inflict Cursed on your characters. There is also frost environment hazard scattered around the arena, further making this fight a challenge.

How to Beat jorn, The Hewer of the Judged

Icewind

Icewind
Dark Alliance - Icewind
Quest The Fury of Icewind
Act A Tomb of Ice
Description
The ancient white dragon, Ixbillailzakzillimiliax, Icewind herself, namesake of Icewind Dale, is a legend, a myth formed of ice. Those who first came north and called this place home were terrorized by this gargantuan beast, whose breath they equated to the north wind.
The smallest but most feral of their kind, white dragons like Icewind prefer to attack first without stopping to ask questions, freezing their enemies instantly with their deadly exhalations. She awakened from a long slumber and returned to the Dale, perhaps drawn by the call of the Shard. But the untimely death of her mate Ingeloakastimizilian (better known to some as Icingdeath) at the hands of the Dale heroes drove Icewind to the point of single-minded retaliation. She wanted the Shard, a tantalizing addition for her hoard, but not before she exacted her vengeance and reminded the Dake if who truly ruled these snowy lands.
Fortunately, her rampage was put to an end before she was able to freeze the Dale and claim the Shard for herself.

Icewind is a fearsome dragon that deals tons of damage with her attacks. Cold and ferocious, she will smash, bite, and freeze anybody who opposes her. With a dragon as your opponent, you are going to need to use the ballista in the arena to be able to deal with her.
