Introduction

In this section, you will find tips and talent suggetions for all bosses in The Eternal Palace for Frost Mage. These are not complete encounter guides, but tips and suggestions. For the encounter guide, please click the above link.

It should also be noted that Worldvein Resonance Icon Worldvein Resonance should be slotted in a minor slot if, and only if, the majority of your raid is running it. Without consistent coverage by the other raid members, this Essence will fall off. The suggestions below assume that no one else is running it. Replace Essence of the Focusing Iris Icon Essence of the Focusing Iris if your raid is running it and you somehow have both Minor slots unlocked, otherwise run it as your Minor regardless.
