It's a Giant, my Giant Slayer achievement advanced by one when I killed it. User Judas Sig.pngudas 15:24, 27 September 2019 (UTC)

Neat! Changed. - Felix Omni 15:27, 27 September 2019 (UTC)
It's only classified as such for balance reasons, similar to the Vale Guardian being labeled as a plant, which is evidently not the case. The Icebrood Construct has nothing in common with giants as we known them in Guild Wars so putting the infobox race as such is nonsensical in my opinion. A note stating that it progresses the Giant Slayer would be enough. The word Icebrood is literally in the name even. I'd argue the same should be done for similar pages like Kudu's Monster and Veteran Uhiwi, in the giants alone, I'm sure there's others. 17:20, 27 September 2019 (UTC)
Yes, that's the reason. It is of interest to note though, since people were using icebrood slaying sigils in their solo attempts (which obviously wouldn't work against a giant). User Judas Sig.pngudas 19:39, 27 September 2019 (UTC)
I'm not saying it's not note-worthy, I think it is. But I think that's exactly where it should be said, in the Notes section, instead of discarding the lore race completely, which I feel is what should always be in the infobox since in a few cases, the mechanical race is in place for balance reasons. 21:47, 27 September 2019 (UTC)

Strike Mission for Fraenir has Icebrood Construct with legendary rank, not Legendary Icebrood Construct. ~SimeUser Sime Maraca Choya.pngTalk 01:09, 1 December 2019 (UTC)
Oh god please why. Yeah I'm just more unhappy with the whole mess.--Rain Spell (talk) 01:14, 1 December 2019 (UTC)
Yep, my head already hurts from it :D ~SimeUser Sime Maraca Choya.pngTalk 01:14, 1 December 2019 (UTC)
Turn Icebrood Construct into a disambiguation page. Legendary Icebrood Construct redirects there. Then move/create Icebrood Construct (A Race to Arms) (moved from here), Icebrood Construct (Sanctum Arena) (new), Legendary Icebrood Construct (Storms of Winter) (moved from (Bjora Marches), and Legendary Icebrood Construct (Shiverpeak Pass) (moved from base).
All four are legendary ranked foes, 2 have the same appearance afaik, third has same appearance as miniature, fourth has unique appearance (some of the time? Haven't done the new strike).
Simple. Konig (talk) 12:20, 1 December 2019 (UTC)
Alternatively, since it's "technically" the same NPC (an icebrood construct created by Fraenir), put all four into this page, have Legendary Icebrood Construct be a redirect here, and split the combat abilities into subsections named by the above four () names. It'd be a bit bloated, but since we don't have walkthroughs on the NPC pages it won't be too bloated. Konig (talk) 12:22, 1 December 2019 (UTC)
Icebrood Construct during A Race to Arms is only champion, not legendary. And yes, during the strike it is "cut" in half with the Fraenir standing in it and holding on it. ~SimeUser Sime Maraca Choya.pngTalk 12:38, 1 December 2019 (UTC)
The models for the meta one and the strike one are different. (No legs vs legs) I think the base model is the same for the story and strike missions. He just loses an arm in the bjora strike mission. I think a disambiguation page is a good idea. (Until they drop tiny icebrood construct minions on us in a later patch.) --Rain Spell (talk) 16:09, 1 December 2019 (UTC)
Wouldn't be the first time we had NPCs of multiple ranks. Or of different (in this case, 3) appearances. Both methods will work so long as we don't include strike/meta walkthroughs on the NPC pages (which we shouldn't anyways). Konig (talk) 12:39, 2 December 2019 (UTC)
Ugh ArenaNet, what a mess. I've just linked to Icebrood Construct (Sanctum Arena) as the one that the Fraenir summons. -Chieftain AlexUser Chieftain Alex sig.png 11:43, 3 December 2019 (UTC)
I was right btw lmao. They added tiny icebrood constructs, though without the name. --Rain Spell (talk) 06:10, 24 August 2021 (UTC)
