|An Ancient in the ice and snow... I wonder if they have thoughts like we do? I can't hear any. They don't have mouths or ears... none that I can see, anyways. They're mostly pretty peaceful, unless we attack first. I'd never say this to Father, but I wish we could just leave them alone.|
You will first encounter the Ice Ancient as you approach the face of the fallen giant during the quest The Magic Chisel. It is best to clear the area first of enemies before engaging with the Primordial.
|In the large and open area you encounter after blowing up the red crystal on the giant's ring, clearing the area of enemies will trigger the fight.|

When encountering any Ancient type of boss, it is best to just simply wait for it to open its chest as it attacks as your own attacks will bounce off with its chest closed.
The Ice Ancient will send one long beam of ice that he grazes sideways towards you. Block this strike, or throw your axe at its chest.
It will send balls of ice your way – be sure to dodge and block these before throwing your axe at its open chest. There is a short window of time in between his salvos, enough time for you to strike.
The Ice Ancient will drop down on the ground when you approach near it and send out a pulse of energy.
Like most battles against Ancient type bosses, just keep your distance and be patient. Wait for it to open its chest and throw your axe into the exposed area for damage. Pieces of it will fall off, which you can throw at it for bigger damage.
