One of Frostfang Barioth's most defining features is the tusks, which have taken on a dark hue which is contrasted by the icy white coloration at the front, giving the monster's overall tusks a more chilling appearance. Frostfang Barioth also sports thicker fur across its forelimbs and face, sporting an aged look compared to the standard individual. Finally, much of the Frostfang Barioth's body is covered with a form of frost to reflect upon its amplified abilities to use its sub-zero breath.
Behavior and Abilities
Frostfang Barioth has a sub-zero breath attack, very similar to that of Velkhana's, that leaves a trail of frost on the ground that lingers for a few seconds. These frost trails will cause the hunter that touches them to be covered in frost and become sluggish. It can also breathe an explosive ice projectile that sends hunters flying. The Frostfang Barioth also maintains much of its physical prowess similar to the original monster, allowing it to deal heavy damage to anyone who is unfortunate enough to get caught by the debilitating effects of its icy breath. However, Frostfang Barioth tends to use its breath attack more and jumps around less often.
