Ice Frost Lord

Today I grouped through dungeon finder to kill a seasonal boss. Ice Frost Lord Ahune is a boss that is only available during the Midsummer Fire Festival. You summon him in the Slave Pens.

You queue for this in the dungeon finder and he is a fast easy boss. When you queue into the slave pens you will see a crystal off to the left guarded by a mob. You will need to kill that mob and click on the crystal to summon Ahune. Once he is summoned he will summon an earth elemental. While you are fighting that a bunch of water elementals appear, I believe the earth elemental summons them but it could be Ahune. The earth elemental is elite and the water elementals are not.

There are a couple phases to this, the first one is fighting the earth elemental, when you defeat that Ahune will despawn and a crystal will take his place, you want to destroy that crystal. Ahune will appear again and summon another earth elemental, you will go back to fighting that and once you kill it you will want to finish destroying the crystal. When he is done a loot crate will appear.

I have read that is you destroy the crystal in the first phase, before Ahune respawns, the crate chest will probably not appear so it is a good idea to wait until after he respawns to finish destroying the crystal.

The main piece of loot you roll for always seems to be a level 232 cape. There is also a Shards of Ahune you will receive the very first time you do this boss. It starts a quest so make sure you click on it and accept the quest before you leave the instance because you hand it in right there inside the instance. You will also receive a Satchel of Chilled Goods the first time you do this each day. In that you will find 2 Emblem of Frost. You can do this as many times as you like per day but you will only receive a Satchel of Chilled Goods the first time on each toon. You can also only do the Shards of Ahune quest once per toon.
