From Guild Wars 2 Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

The Thaw Elixir is a potion used by newly transformed Sons of Svanir to sustain the extreme cold temperatures to which they are regularly exposed. Consuming the Thaw Elixir is a must to survive The Bitter Cold area and its harsh weather, negating the effect of Bitter Cold.png Bitter Cold by granting Cold Resistance.png Cold Resistance.

Acquisition[edit]

Ingredients[edit]

The following items need to be in the character's inventory to brew the elixir:

Notes[edit]

  • If nearby enemies interrupt you as you are brewing the elixir, the components will be consumed without successfully brewing the elixir.
    • This includes damage taken from the hot spring itself.
  • The Thaw Elixir doesn't exist as an item itself; after brewing it, the effect is automatically gained. It's only mentioned in several item descriptions and Living World episodes.
  • Despite the duration being listed as about 24 hours, the effects of the elixir's Cold Resistance will reset at daily reset, making it more effective if done shortly after reset.
    • The effect does, however, have a minimum duration of 2 hours, allowing you to get credit for the daily on multiple resets at the price of having its protection for less time .
  • If you do not have enough ingredients, attempting to brew the elixir may remove the Grawl Firestone from your inventory without granting the Cold Resistance effect.
  • If you log out or do not finish the story while Cold Resistance is active and it runs out, you may have to restart the entire storyline to make a new one.
