Walkthrough[edit]

The Champion Svanir Shaman Chief moves, though not much, staying relatively close to the fallen Dragon Totem. As a result ranged classes can attack safely from the snowbank to the south without worry. For melee classes, the shaman has an icy breath attack, that should be dodged to avoid the full duration of it, as well as several brutal mele attacks that can down a player.

There are also stationary ice storms that are summoned and do persistent AoE damage, these cannot be attacked, and are best just dodged and avoided. Be very cautious when reviving people, near these ice storms.

Dialogue[edit]

Upon event success
Scholar Brogun: With that Son of Svanir defeated, the elemental lost its traction in our world, as I predicted.
Scholar Brogun: And Jormag's hold on the grawl is shattered. This triumph must be documented. But first, a fine ale.

Notes[edit]

The large ice elemental at the Maw may sometimes shatter during the event, causing Ice Storms to despawn.
  • He originally was stationary and did not move from his spot. This was changed during the revamp of some of the world bosses during the release of Heart of Thorns, and he became mobile.
  • If the event fails, the Elemental shatters and the Champion Svanir Shaman Chief simply vanishes, with Scholar Brogun returning to Krennak's Homestead.
