Frostfang Barioth Combat Info

  • Kinsect Extract:
    • Red: Head
    • Orange: Body/Hindlegs
    • White: Forelegs/Wings
    • Green: Tail
  • Enraged mode: Eyes switch from blue to orange. Attacks more ferociously and more often
  • You can obtain a Shiny Drops by attacking the Head and Wings, plus with a wallbang
  • The general Strategy should be to break it's wings as early as possible and go from there.
  • Breaking its wings will make it stagger after many attacks, creating openings for damage
  • Breaking both of its fangs will weaken its frosty breath. If flinched, it may shoot out a breath of ice upon recovering.  Thaw out any icy patches on the ground with Torch Pods.
  • Generally, try to stay close to its wings or head to avoid the freezing Breath. This does not apply when Frostfang Barioth roars once and jumps backwards.
  • The head / teeth can be broken twice. Doing so will decrease the time you are stuck in the Frostbreath when you step in it.
  • Wearing an Iceproof Mantle will also decrease the time you are stuck in place.
  • Generally avoid using the Rocksteady mantle, as you will still get stuck in place, but never get any I-frames.
  • Enraged mode:
    • The Super Slam now happens twice. If you get hit by the first one, stay down.
    • Frostfang Barioth will also combo many of his Frostbreath attacks in pairs together. Always be on your guard.

      So I just did the old dog new tricks quest and no equipment unlocked. I’m at namielle right now so is it only obtained after shara?

        So I just did the old dog new tricks event quest but nothing unlocked. I’m on collecting elder tracks (right before namielle) am I doing something wrong? Or is it locked behind another quest?

          Hey guys this one stumps me. Already forged aletraon dual blades. Trying to forge upgraded version ( madness dual blades) have all components needed but says cannot be forged?? Any idea why?

            Is there anything you can do to prevent that sticky ice **** he does before he flattens you (besides "lol don't get hit")

              Soloed his tempered version two times using Safi's Hellspear without carting because I wanted to see if his glaive was good (it is). Cut off his tail both times in the nest area, too, and he was not happy about that. Also managed to bring him down to dying the first time before he left the nest area; scared the hell out of me the first time while I was carving his tail and he came back.

                Why does the page say he is resistant to dragon when the field guide (which is also on this page) says that frostfang has a 1 star weakness to dragon?

                  I hunted m'y first frostfang today and that was a pretty cool fight, on my first try, with my full velkhana armor he cleaned the floor with my face, but, on the second try, i understand what i did wrong, i was way to aggressive when he was enraged. Since I've forced myself to go on the defence, i'm farming it with so much fun. The surprisingly low amount of differents materials to gather and the pretty good armor and weapons stats, i dont regret going for this monster armor.

                    When’s that tempered event quest coming back? I want to make the layered armor but I don’t have enough tickets.

                        if you guys don't know "The Last White Knight" isn't the only quest you can fight Frostfang. There is also another quest called "old dog new tricks" which you can actually fight a normal non temperd Frostfang Barioth in an arena. He is a 5 star master rank challenge and he is really easy. I defeated him under 10 minutes! Well... still use fire elemental weapons for a fast and enjoyable experience. So if your still trying to get the Frostfang equipment or just want to have revenge now is your chance.

                          I'm glad we're get to have easy, relaxing fights amid all the raging Rangajangs and furious Brachys. For some reason Frostfang got hyped to me as a major challenge, but my first encounter went by shockingly fast, as I literally spent more time searching for it than fighting it. After spending so much time grinding Alatreon (which also eventually became shockingly easy) and breaking my dodge button fighting Rajang, this is a breath of fresh, lung-freezing air.

                            Guys just an update regarding the Frostfang Barioth event if you didn't know the event quest will not be available at Wednesday. I don't know what time is it in your countries but in Indonesia the event quest will finish tomorrow Wednesday at 11:59 midnight so if you haven't fought him or haven't got his equipment I suggest you fight him today.

                              Would still recommend rock steady, you can take his blows w that much armor, just learn to avoid the ice and it's going to be very worth it. You can clutch claw spam if he keeps running or flying, and you can beat him continuously, land some heavy strong moves. It's a good opening, you can charge him and flinch him to a wall when you first meet him,he can't shake you off or stun w a Roar.

                                he is more fun then hard because if you already got used to normal barioth then your gonna have little problem with frostfang. But I gotta say WHAT AN EPIC FIGHT he looks very cool and should really be classed as a deviant than a variant in my opinion like what hes been through is like scarred yian garuga but both are variants said the devs. His armor is sooo worth it for gs or hammer because slugger level 5 and punishing draw! Overall 9.5/10
