Frostmaw Boss Fight Strategy In V Rising
Down below we have listed down few strategies that you can implement in your playthrough to take down the mighty Frostmaw in V Rising!
Boss Fight Strategy 1
You may choose a spear or any other melee weapon for the boss fight. However, if you want to take the road of defeating the boss using a melee weapon, then there is no parallel to a spear, and it would be best for this fight as it can devastate the boss by dealing a lot of damage. Plus, using the spear also ensures you maintain a certain distance from the boss, and the spear deals more damage to enemies.
Additionally, if you don’t want to get frozen a lot in this encounter, you’ll want to equip the Blood Rite ability to conduct the counter-attack. The Blood Rite ability heals you while simultaneously allowing you to counter the assault. The Chaos Valley is another ability that you should frequently use in this fight; you may cause scorching damage to the boss, and it will suffer a lot of damage.
You can also equip the Heart Strike ultimate ability and use it whenever the opportunity arises.
When you get to the boss’s position, use the Chaos Valley ability to attack him and deliver damage to him right away.
Here are some moves that the Frostmaw commonly uses:
- The boss possesses a frost bolt attack that fires three bolts at the same time. You can avoid this assault by running away or just moving, but you will be immobilized if you are hit by any of them.
- If you notice the monster approaching, overuse the Blood Rite ability so that when you unfreeze, the boss will attack you while you are in your counter ability, doing damage and healing you.
- The monster also has an AoE strike in which it crashes into the ground, causing a frost wave to envelop it. You’ll want to avoid the AoE strike. Because Chaos Valley does scorching damage to the boss over time, you can spam it on it.
- Moreover, the boss also has another attack up his sleeve; Frostmaw causes an Ice Storm attack, which slows down your movement speed and allows the boss to get in close and deal melee damage. During this attack, the ground will begin to freeze, and ice spikes will emerge from it.
- You can also see the frozen ground, and you must keep away from the spikes since they can hit you and freeze you. While in the ice storm, you can use all of your skills.
- When the boss’s HP is low, he will begin to utilize the ice attack beam, which he will shoot at 180 degrees, but if you sprint in time, the beam will miss you, and you will not be frozen, or if you have your Blood Rite ability charged, you may use it as well.
When the boss’s HP is low, he will begin to utilize the ice attack beam, which he will shoot at 180 degrees, but if you sprint in time, the beam will miss you, and you will not be frozen, or if you have your Blood Rite ability charged, you may use it as well.
You may use the Thousand Spears ability on him when you get close enough, and it will swiftly deplete his health. Once you are done, make a comeback by attacking Frostmaw the Mountain Terror with Chaos Valley.
Also, send the Chaos Valley barrage at Frostmaw The Mountain Terror whenever you can, and then use Spear’s ability as well in the mix. When he is steady, or you can predict his movement, only then should you trigger the Ultimate ability. Doing so will not only deal damage to the boss, but it will also heal you back in the process.
That is pretty much our first strategy to beat Frostmaw the Mountain Terror. Remember, concentrate on his frost attacks, and when the attack is about to interact with you, use the Blood Rite and get out of the tough spot and maintain distance. Then hit the boss with the Chaos Valley. Rinse and repeat, and you will take the boss down and can extract the V Blood out of him.
Boss Fight Strategy 2
Our second strategy favors the ranged attacking players and strictly discourages melee combat. As soon as you see the boss, Frostmaw will chase you down the Hallowed Mountains’ frozen paths. The first and foremost attack that the boss unleashes on you will be ice missiles that cause a lot of damage. As mentioned before that, if you are level 54 or below, then these ice missiles will most likely kill you.
Additionally, the ice missile attack not only does physical damage but also splashes one as well. That is why you must avoid these iced-spike attacks at all costs regardless of under level or at par with the boss’s level in V Rising.
Keeping these strong attack patterns under consideration, we recommend using Chaos Volley, Sanguine Coil, and crossbow weapons of tier 3 or above for the boss fight.
In this scenario, the best approach is defense. Wait for his piercing strikes and Frost Nova AOE damage before attacking him with Chaos Barrier. Furthermore, focus on ranged attacks because it’s pointless to approach Frostmaw because he’ll kill you instantaneously.
However, don’t go too far away from the combat since this will restart the combat engagement with the boss, and your strategies will be in vain.
