He is located on top of the mountain directly south of Thurg, right over the entrance to the shardwurm caves.

Soloed by 79 ranger :).

He died from 167456 damage in 4 mins and 42 seconds.
A high hit of 852 suggests an unshielded (I.e with no defence AAs or armor) max hit of 900-1000.
Quads.
Summons.
Rampages.
Partially slowable with Earthcaller.
Snareable.
Rootable.

He does not Flurry or Enrage.

He cast Gale of the West Wind on me but never landed today. Cold resist was 471 when i fought him. Seems the spell has a knockback to it, but is easy to resist

Thought I would add in my experience.
I five boxed him, 70 war, 70 cleric, 70 shaman, 70 wizzy, 69 wizzy. Fairly easy fight, my Warrior sits around 10.3hp and about 1600ac, so far from being uber (which i suppose is relative =)).

He hits for around what everyone else was saying, can be a long fight, I think it took me around 6-8 minutes to kill, though I was conservative with nuking since I was mainly relying on Incite to hold aggro.

As others have said, you can keep your casters back from his AE which helps quite a bit. I had my cleric in close to make sure heals landed and used my shaman standing behind him to keep the cleric healthy from the AE.

I used Infusion for the fight to see if I could resist his AE, that maxed my resists at 525, but his AE still landed quite a bit. Just remember to levitate everyone in some form (just in case casters get hit by his throw-back) and you'll be golden.

Oh yea, magic based nukes land great, Thundaka'd him to death (of course very resistant to ice, didn't try fire).

Spell he has is:

Blizzard of the North Wind
1: Decrease HP when cast by 1375
2: Decrease Attack Speed by 50%

Spell Type: Detrimental
Skill: Evocation
Mana: 0
Target Type: PB AE
Casting Time: Instant
Duration: 1 ticks @L1 to 1 min @L17
Recast Time: 2
Resist: Cold (-200)
Fizzle Time: 2.50
Range to target: 200
AE Radius: 100
Interruptable: Yes
Location: Any
Time of Day: Any
Reflectable: Yes

Note: With 395 cold resist... i resist this thing maybe 1 out of 7 casts. BST with 421CR resist it about the same, 1 resist for every 7 casts. So it appears nasty.

Curable with Resplendant Cure 3, but not worth curing, He casts it quiet often.

Max Hit for me was 826, he seems to quad, But I may be wrong.

Because of the 50% slow, its somewhat a long fight. Group was 70 Wiz, Monk, Cleric, Best and 66 Ranger. total time woudl of been 10-15mins from engage to down. He didnt seem to kick or have a knockback spell. We just fort him where he stood on the ledge.

He kicks you half way across zone, so keep him cacing the mountain to avoid flying and dying from falling damage. (11k tank downed in one hit)

Started killing the storms with 4 of us: (All Time-geared) 70 Pal, 70 Enc, 70 Nec, 70 Mag. The storms are all level 70, summon & enrage; so having the Necro kite them was a no go. They are well spaced for easy single pulls, as well as being stunnable, and seemed to proc a cold-based slow-DoT, which was cureable with Radiant Cure line of AA (I didnt resist it at 323 unbuffed vs. cold).

Kilt two before needing to med with no primary MH other than pally heals. Brought a 70 Clr and 70 Bst along and owned two more storms, when Old Frosty popped. Rumor had it he was on 30min repop, or spawned after 5 storms killed, but we had killed only 4 when he spawned for us.(*Old Frostbeard's spawn point was the North side of the mountain, clearly visible "ahead and left" when facing South from the river at the base).

Necro kited named while I pulled 5th storm (at 99% Old Frostbeard didn't summon). Group killed the 5th storm, and after the update on Task Window saying to recover the motivator, Necro brought Frosty over and we owned him.

Didnt have log on, but I would guess he hit somewhere from 700-900 per round max. Compared to RSS trash, he was gimp. Chanty slowed, Necro dotted and dps'd him dead in ~2 minutes. Keep casters and healers out of his AE (I was told it was 1.3k, but no verification), I recall it being pretty weak, and easily avoided by keeping distance). Any decent group that can xp in Creator DoNs or WoS+ can handle this peon np.

Finished event start to finish in ~15 minutes :)
