Encounters

Random Encounter mobs:

Instance Overview

Fight your way thru the canyons. Each canyon is barricaded with a massive wall of ice crystals that will melt once you capture each flag. In each canyon you will find steam vents that will give a bonus effect, +50% Outgoing Healing and +50% Incoming Healing, use these to your advantage and fight on top of them. Once you kill the end box use the sled to exit the instance.

Boss and End Fight

This is a dual boss fight but most of the fight Guinokh and Malgen will fight once at a time. In the boss room, there will be vents that give +50% Outgoing Healing and +50% Incoming Healing. These vents bestow this effect and replaces the Winds of Forochel effect. If working on one mob, it is beneficial to have the mob on the vent so that it will not have the +50% Damage buff while you retaining your damage buff. This is a bit harder to do when packs of mobs spawn in groupings of Small Fellowship and above.

Name Species
Guinokh Hill-man
Malgen (Skirmish - Icy Crevasse) Mammoth
