A Tomb of Ice

Information

White dragons are simple creatures, but not without cunning. And Icewind was more cunning than most.

The dragon was baiting us to fight her on her terms. Not ideal. But if we didn't face her, she would continue to terrorize the Dale.

And so we entered the ruined Temple of Othea to face the fury of Icewind.

♦ Fire Ballista

Move forward, behind the elevator there's a Relief on the right corner. Go back to the elevator, press both pressure plates and go up. The elevator is very long. You skip the cutscene if you want to.

Defeat Icewind

Icewind fires cold damage through her mouth. If you are not close enough, it will be hard to avoid getting damaged by the cold. If you are melee hitting in, pay attention to the front feet, if it lifts one, jump back quickly to avoid getting hit.

Activate Ballista

Icewind will become invulnerable and fly away making a wind storm after you've taken a small part of her health. Take the way to the side, to the ballista, it will be guarded by Goblins. Defeat them to remove the force field over the ballista.

Hit the ballista to fire at Icewind.

Defeat Icewind

Return to the center and defeat the Goblins around, to charge your Ultimate while Icewind is not at range. When Icewind comes to ground, use your Ultimate against her if you fully charged it 

(This process must be repeated a few times until Icewind is defeated)
