Deepfrost Skarn is one of the Behemoths in Dauntless. It is a variant of Skarn.

Journal Entry[]

"Old Arkan says if it gets cold enough, a block of ice is as solid as any rock. The Isgryth must be Skaldeskar's way of proving it."

- Kat Sorrel

The Deepfrost Skarn, like other varieties of the species, has become as one with its island - both the living earth on which the Skarn usually feeds, and the charged frost aether that infuses it all. The Skaldish call them the Isgryth, a word derived from their words for "ice" and "stone".

Imbued by the ancient and ambient power of the Urska, the icy realm of the Skaldish Queen has transformed the ordinary "Rock Lizard" into something truly chilling.

Although the subspecies was only discovered with the Frostwardens' domain less than a century ago, more recent reports throughout the frontier indicate the Deepfrost Skarn may also be thriving well outside the Skaldeskar archipelago. It's potential impact on the rest of The Shattered Isles is still not entirely clear, but Kat and Dr. Priyani are both closely monitoring the situation.

Kat's Hunting Tips:

- Like the ordinary variety, the Deepfrost Skarn can launch deadly attacks from beneath a Slayer's feet. These ice spires explode when the Behemoth becomes aether-charged.

- Though they are made of incredibly dense frost archonite, Slayers can destroy the Deepfrost skarn's ice spires (with some effort) to prevent the explosions.

- Whether you destroy the spires intentionally or they detonate due to aetheric instability, the Deepfrost Skarn may use the resulting burst of frost to restore its own cold, rocky body armour.
