Cold Storage is a heroic dungeon located in Zaiwei in the Silverfrost Mountains.


Overview[edit | edit source]

Cold Storage is a dungeon that can only be run once per day unless a Cold Storage Reset from the Hongmoon Store or Daily Dash is used to reset it. This small dungeon consists of 1 mini-boss, Pulverizing Automaton, the main boss Winter Mane, and an additional bonus boss, Kaari Lord.

After the main boss, Winter Mane, is defeated, there is a merchant that spawns in the same room. Several items can be purchased from this merchant, including the Ice Weapon needed as evolution material to upgrade the weapon to the legendary Seraph Weapon. The following list shows the items the merchant is selling:

Note: The skill is the same that can be obtained from the achievement merchant in Zaiwei or from Bloodshade Harbor.

The second boss, Kaari Lord, only appears if a White Orb is used in the northern area of the dungeon after the first boss has been defeated. One Player will need a White Orb orb, which can drop from the first boss, or can be acquired from the dynamic quest reward chest.

Note: If players leave the dungeon after the first boss is defeated, they can rejoin the dungeon at a later point to kill only the second boss. However, they can only join a party with players who also already defeated the first boss and have not defeated the second boss yet.

Mechanics[edit | edit source]

Though most parties tend to ignore mechanics for this dungeon, it is important for parties which may not have enough AP to kill Winter Mane before the enrage timer.

Whoever is the furthest away from the boss or is a ranged class will have higher importance than the melee classes.

After a few attack patterns, Winter Mane will roar and on-screen text will display information about a Pulverizing Automaton powering up. Right after this notice, Winter Mane will grind his cannon onto the ground and send a tremor towards any of the clusters of "sleeping" Pulverizing Automatons scattered around the room. Whoever is furthest from the boss or is a ranged class should take notice of this. Following the tremor, an Automaton will spawn from that cluster and the ranged / furthest player should start attacking it to generate aggro, causing the Automaton to follow him/her. These tremor-powerups will continue periodically happening throughout the rest of the dungeon.

The automatons will always travel in a straight line so the player with the automaton's aggro should ensure that he stays in a linear direction away from the boss. Should an automaton hit Winter Mane, a red spinning signal will appear at the top of the automaton and it will explode after about 5 seconds, causing a flashbang and damage to the party. These flashbangs can be iframed or resisted by party wide resist skills.

If an automaton is already on its way towards Winter Mane, any player can use block skills to stun the automaton, causing it to stay still for the stunned duration then changing direction towards the player that attacks it.

Over the course of the fight, Winter Mane will occasionally target the furthest player from him and send an ice tremor towards them, causing a freezing effect for an extended period of time (TBC). The targeted player can either iframe the freeze or get frozen. Normally the party will want this targeted player to be the person aggro-ing the automatons as well as if an automaton hits the frozen player, it will unfreeze them, destroy the automaton, and also apply a piercing buff to the whole party (10mins). This piercing buff can be stacked up to 5 times and is meant to negate the 5-stack defense buff that Winter Mane will gain over time throughout the battle.
