This is an event on two fronts: defending the point inside camp, and destroying the corrupted ice shards surrounding the camp. While only one objective is required for the event to succeed, it is fastest to destroy the ice shards. Bear in mind, however, that while out destroying the shards (which are basically undefended) the icebrood will attempt to sneak into the camp and capture it. Keep a careful eye on the event bar--if it begins to fill, enemies are inside the camp and they've begun to capture the point. To prevent possible event failure, you will need to loop back around and clear all hostiles that have gotten in.
If you're in a group, split your forces between the camp and the shards. If solo, after clearing the first group inside the camp, you will have ~1min to clear shards before the next enemy wave arrives. Destroy what shards you can in that time, return to clear the camp, repeat.

Before event start
Captain Gullivre: Where is that scout? I'm getting worried.
Tactician Draga: We have a problem. The Claws of Jormag are flying around this area, working the corrupted Svanir into a frenzy.
Captain Gullivre: Have you picked up any tips for how to defeat them?
Tactician Draga: They draw power from corrupted ice shards, so destroy those on sight. Sometimes, the shards fall off the creatures themselves.
Captain Gullivre: Good work. We'll be ready in case they make it here. Now, get back out there.
Tactician Draga: I'll be safer out there than you will be here. We have dark times ahead.
Event start
Captain Gullivre: Look at the sky! The Dragon is dropping corrupted ice shards!
Captain Gullivre: Heads up! Focus on the ice shards. We'll put an end to this insult.
Scout Mynil: I've seen them! Svanir! They're coming. Get to the gates.
Event success
Captain Gullivre: Thank you. You've done us a great service.
