Frostfang Barioth has a significantly higher chance of using its breath attack than the normal Barioth variant. Also, the damage is a lot stronger than the usual, it is recommended that you keep on moving to avoid taking damage.

Frozen Ground

Frostfang Barioth will sometimes use the Sub-Zero Breath to freeze the ground making it more difficult to move around during fights. Keep in mind that wearing an Iceproof mantle or rocksteady mantle will not help you in these situations.

Extreme Cold

Wandering on a cold environment can give you an Iceblight status which can deplete your stamina way faster than usual. This can be troublesome when fighting against Frostfang Barioth. Be sure to prevent this by using an item called Hot Drink.
