Walkthrough[edit]

The Champion Svanir Shaman Chief moves a lot throughout the fight in a wide area in front of the fallen Dragon Totem, charging forwards and knocking down players in his way. If he wanders too far from the event area, he will become temporarily Determined.png Determined and move back to the center.

Phase 1: 100% to 50% health[edit]

During the first phase, the shaman uses an icy jet attack that should be dodged to avoid the full duration of it and getting Chilled.png Chilled. He also summons large falling ice spikes which can be dodged or sidestepped.

Phase 2: 50% health and below[edit]

Upon reaching 50% health, the shaman will turn into an icebrood goliath with several new abilities and brutal melee attacks that can easily down players. However, most of his attacks are clearly telegraphed and can be easily dodged, sidestepped or blocked.

Throughout the fight there are also moving 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]

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.
