Frost dragon (Dungeoneering)

For the standard variant, see Frost dragon.

Frost dragons are found in the Frozen Floors (floors 1-11) of Daemonheim and are quite rare to encounter. They seem to appear more commonly in a party of 3 or more. Despite their namesake, they still breathe the traditional dragonfire and require an anti-dragon shield or a (weak/strong) cure potion. Protect from and Deflect Magic may also be used, but they are only slightly effective and players will still be hit regularly if they do not employ another source of dragonfire protection. They also have a magic attack that looks similar to a Water Blast spell. They are vulnerable to fire spells and stabbing attacks.

Killing one, in a solo dungeon, and offering the bones on an altar is required for Up to the Gods, a Daemonheim Medium task.

Frost dragons are also notable for being among the first monsters that free-to-play players could kill that drop dragon bones, thus these monsters turned dragon bones into a free-to-play item for the first time. However, the dragon bones cannot be taken out of Daemonheim.

With the release of resource dungeons, members can fight the frost dragons within the resource dungeons (requiring level 85 Dungeoneering), and those frost dragons within drop frost dragon bones.

A very quick and effective method of finding a frost dragon is having any frozen floor incomplete so starting up a party automatically defaults to a frozen floor. Select a medium floor and open up all doors in the starting area, if no frost dragons are found, leave the dungeon and restart until one is found.

Drops[edit | edit source]

100% drops[edit | edit source]

Quantities and rarities are random. Dropped food will usually be the second best the player can fish and cook and drops in general will become less generous as players progress.

Torn bags
Non-members can receive torn bags as well, although they can only sell or alchemise them.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The frost dragons in Daemonheim used to drop normal dragon bones, even though the frost dragons in the Asgarnian Ice Dungeon resource dungeon dropped frost dragon bones. This has now been fixed. This was because the resource dungeon and the frost dragon bones were introduced later than the frost dragons themselves. The dragons used to be found exclusively in Daemonheim.
