      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

        Hello. :)
        Break a fang to get a frostfang. Captures also reward frostfangs. You can carve a tail from its body, not just a severed tail. Even Quest can reward Sealed Feystones.

          Soloing this guy is so fun. You can keep pushing him into walls due to narrow paths and theres even a banbaro and an ebony Odogaron to turf him with. And with that you barely even need to hit him :D

            this fight was horribly disappointing after the previous fights we got, alatreon, furious rajang, raging brachy, stygian zinogre, rajang, safi all of those monsters were epic fights and cool as hell whereas frostfang is basically just tempered barioth with a mildly annoying mechanic to put frost on the ground that makes you take a few seconds to shake off unable to do anything and the weapons which are all high element are worse than the safi ice, kjarr ice etc weapons except they start with 15% affinity which you could easily make a safi weapon with the exact same stats as the frostfang weapons if that wouldnt make them basically awful to use and is there even a need to compare to the kjarr ice weapons?

              Cool fight, not much of a challenge but still fun. Only annoying thing is that the fight is restricted to two areas and he doesn't roam around but waits until you enter. I really dislike this scripted behaviour. You have the whole of Hoarfrost Reach to fight in but no only his lair and the frozen geyser cavern. If it's like this you can simply put him into the arena not much of a difference.

                Don't bother about the tail, it's regular barioth one that you get. concentrate on fangs and claws, those are unique materials

                  I get more tickets if I capture him then when I kill him but I don't if that's true for anyone else. You probably get more tickets if you have the Kirin armor but I don't know

                    3 star to fire, 2 star to thunder also 2 star to all ailments. Face is breakable 2 times, wings are breakable and tail is severable

                      In short, this fight feels so much more fun than the normal dash spamming Barioth, his weapons are not the greatest with less affinity but more raw and ice element than the normal ones its not that great considering you need three tickets, but the armor is oh so amazing, I just made a status hunting horn set and the slugger secret should be good for hammer and hunting horn, not to mention the beta braces and greaves having 2 level 4 gem slots and good skills with it.

                        Just fought him. He’s easier then I expected. But for those who wanted to know, iceproof mantle doesn’t work on that freezing mist. If you’ve fought normal Barioth or even tempered Barioth, I don’t think he’s gonna be an issue. Still really fun.

                          5 WAYS RYOZO HAS RUINED MY LIFE: NUMBER 1) HE KILLED THE FLASH PODS. Without any provocation or good reason, Mr.Tsujimoto took the most flashy CC around and gutted it with the nerf bat. Monster Hunter has only been about 2 things. Permanently stunlocking the monsters and spam triangle.The flash pods was the perfect embodiment of what it meant to be a hunter. Now it's just a waste of breath. NUMBER 2) I CAN'T STUNLOCK ANYMORE. Similar to the nerf for what it mean to be a hunter, Ryozo has done it again but with CC. The flash pods which was obviously the best designed items in the game just got nerfed. So now it's impossible for me to use flash pods and still win the fight. It was the glue that held the 4 man squad together. If you think I am gonna use the clutch claw at the right moment and pay attention to the enrage mechanic instead of just unga bunga, you obviously don't understand Monster Hunter. NUMBER 3) HE IS NERFING RAW DAMAGE. Kulve Taroth weapon with build in Crit Element? What's next? Elemental damage now instant kill Alatreon? Raw damage now deal 2% less damage than an optimized specific element build against specific monster. Anyone that isn't a complete scrub know that Raw damage is the most important, interesting and exciting part of any monster hunter game. By making stuff that better than Raw, that make it harder for me, to build only 1 blast set and CC which was already get nerfed anyway. If anything they should just remove element damage all together and let only the highest Raw weapon survive. NUMBER 4) WHAT IS ALL THIS COUNTER PLAY CRAP. CC mean I stunlock the monster and the monster has to wait around until i decide not to use CC or screw up which of course i never do. What's the point of making the monster react to player movement and position? This isn't some stupid MOBA where everyone can have a good time. Monster Hunter is a REAL game that proves you are better than everybody else. That way you can flame people on forums for having stupid ideas and opinions. NUMBER 5) ADDING EASY MODE FOR NOOBS AND COWARDS. Sos, scaled monster HP. What's next? A reward system that encourage people to help out new players and a guide to help players to develop and effective learning process and self improvement? Monster Hunter isn't about making it easy for new players to get into the game. It's about crushing noobs into the ground so only the strong survive. Human didn't evolve because the World make it easier for us to not die. Human evolved because we are better than all the other stupid animals. CONCLUSION: Monster Hunter is the best game ever made. That means it's impossible to make it any better by changing stuff. What we need is more the same stuff we're used to not stupid stuff from other game. So stop coming with new ideas that you think you are gonna make the game better and just bring back Heat gauge for Gunlance already.

                            Love the weapons! The greatsword is beautiful. I'm especially looking forward to the hammer, bow, dual blades, and hunting horn which will all be completely new designs for iceborne.

                              The update says its in the game already. But its not there when I look at the event quests. Do you have to kill Alatreon first or something?
