Entry Text
We ran into a Frost Ancient on our way up the Mountain. Before this journey, I thought all Ancients were made of fire and rock, but I guess it's just the rock part they all share. This one must have originally been part of the Mountain itself. I bet it got tired of being a mountain, and one day just got up and walked away.

Opening Attack

Wait for the Frost Ancient to open its chest for an attack. Every attack you try with its chest still closed will simply bounce off or inflict very little damage.

Frost Ancient Attack Patterns

Attack 1

It will use a very short beam attack directed straight at you. It is best for you to not block these, as doing so may stagger you and cast a freeze aura on you, allowing the Frost Ancient to come close.

Attack 2

Getting too close to it will cause it to go on to its hands and knees before exploding in a pulse.

Attack 3

Similar to its first beam attack, this particular attack will see the Frost Ancient cast the beam from side to side. Block these attacks.

Tips and Strategy

A very easy fight, only difficult if you allow yourself to get caught with its attacks inside of the narrow area you have to fight in.
