Everfrost Peak Map

This perpetually sub-zero peak hosts a wide selection of frozen adventurers. Occasionally, unscrupulous fellows will start up a sculpture boutique, but would be auctioneers tend to accidentally join their merchandise.

Special Rules

Very tiny map. After 125 tiles are revealed, all tiles revealed thereafter put 1 stack of frostbite onto your character.

Strategy

Everfrost Peak is a very cramped map that puts new trait Trait: Frostbite Frostbite in the spotlight. Even if carefully avoided from monsters, merely exploring will eventually afflict you with this troublesome status, and knowing how to mitigate its effects is key to victory.

First, realize that low level goblins and mid level frozen trolls are your allies. Frostbite is functionally a temporary, one-attack-only version of Corrosion, unless being hit with MORE frostbite, so to actually get rid of it you will want to take weak hits, and goblins with their First Strike and Trolls with their high HP and resists are the best choices to that end. Always leave some monsters that you know will hit you around. Second, very much like corrosion, frostbite won't actually harm you if you take 0 damage, through sources of DR like Item: Wereward Wereward and God boon: Vine Form Vine Form so lvl1 goblins can become even MORE efficient at wiping frostbite stacks. Lastly, don't be too afraid of frostbite itself, while it is an extremely dangerous affliction that can get out of hand, there's usually nothing wrong with running around with 15-20 stacks of it, don't blow all your wipes too early, when the effects are still trivial!

Boss

Frozen Dragon's another tanky boss, relying on frostbite buildup to kill you before you're able to finish it off. Despite this, you're still afforded 2 or 3 strikes before the damage you take matches Super Meat Man's damage output, so provide you've come all this way and have 3-4 monsters leftover to vent frostbite off on, you're pretty much golden. Otherwise, it's a damage race to the bitter end. Hit hard, hit ruthlessly, and hope your health bar can take increasingly more brutal attacks until the beast finally falls.
