Vrogulb Frostgrip will cast ice shards at you from a distance. Getting hit by these multiple times will cause you to get Frozen and immobilized. This spell has a short cast time but you'll be able to see him readying it, so be prepared to dodge to the side.

Ice Spike

If you get near Vrogulb Frostgrip, he will cast a spell that makes ice spikes come out of the ground and hit you. You can telegraph this easily since the area that will be hit will glow white right before the spikes come out. Avoid these areas and you'll be fine.

Icebiter Attacks and Abilities

Troll Slam

Icebiter will slam the ground and deal AoE damage. Try to time your parry to when he's about to bring his arms down to get a couple free hits on him. Otherwise, dodge to the side.

Frozen Trail

Icebiter will cast a trail of ice in your direction if you're far from him. You can block it or dodge to the side.

Frost Breath

Dark Alliance Frost Breath
If you're near him, Icebiter will breathe ice at the area in front of him, freezing anyone who gets hit. This takes a while to cast since he'll start taking in a lot of cold air, so just get some distance from him.

Nelgland The Slurper Attacks and Abilities

Leap Forward

Dark Alliance Nelgland Leap Forward
Nelgland The Slurper covers a lot of ground by leaping forward and trying to slam his fist down on you. Dodge backwards when you see him start to lean back.

Spear Hook

Nelgland The Slurper throws his spear at you if you're far away. If caught, you'll get dragged to him. You can telegraph when he'll do this since he'll be outlined red. Dodge to the side to avoid this.

Spear Sweep

Dark Alliance Nelgland sweep
Nelgland The Slurper clears the area in front of him with his spear twice. He'll be winding back his arm and outlined red when he's about to do this, so just dodge out of the way.

Nelgland The Slurper lifts his arm up then pushes it down to the ground, causing AoE damage. Dodge in any direction away from him.

CheckmarkKeep Evading

CheckmarkAttack When They're Exhausted

Prioritize Vrogulb Frostgrip

Dark Alliance Prioritize Vrogulb
It's best to kill Vrogulb Frostgrip first since he makes Icebiter immune from any attacks. He also prefers long range attacks which can be a problem if you're trying to fight one of the other bosses. He's weaker than the other two so it should be quicker to kill him.

Let Them Hit Each Other

Dark Alliance Vrogulb Let them hit each other
Since these three bosses have a number of AoE abilities, they have a tendency to damage each other with them. Try to bait these out by dragging them and grouping them together.

Keep Evading

Dark Alliance Frozen
Three bosses means a lot of abilities and attacks being cast at the same time. While you can block one attack, there's no guarantee that you'll block the other if it comes from a different direction. You'll have to be constantly evading attacks. This is especially important in this fight since you can get Frozen and end up getting permahit.

Attack When They're Exhausted

Dark Alliance Vrogulb Exhausted
Like all Bosses, these three will get Exhausted after using many abilities. This gives you a chance for some free attacks. Make sure to hit them from behind to ensure a critical hit.
