WoW Classic – Naxxramas And Frost Resistance Gear

WoW Classic is wrapping up the update schedule with the release of Phase 6 on December 3rd. This last content update brings the last raid of the original game, Naxxramas. This is the most challenging raid in the game and you cannot go into it unprepared. As you may have heard, you will need frost resistance gear for Naxxramas. Let’s find out why.

The last boss in the raid is Kel’Thuzad. Before getting to him you must clear the bosses in the other wings and the undead dragon. The dragon boss is called Sapphiron and it will give you a really hard time – aka wipe – if you don’t have frost resistance gear. Sapphiron has frost attacks. He does frost damage raid-wide damage that deals 600 damage every two seconds.

Players need to watch out for the moving blizzard attacks that do 2,500 damage every two seconds for all those who are in range. Sapphiron’s Icebolt and Frost Breath attacks do more frost damage. As you can see, that is a lot of frost damage. It is simply too much for the healers to keep up. The only way to resist this encounter is to have frost resistance gear that gives you protection against this type of damage. You will still take some damage, but at least is manageable. If the Princess Huhuran encounter requires a part of the raid to have nature resistance, this encounter requires all raid members to have at least 250 frost resistance on their gear.

The best frost resistance gear for this encounter is obtained from the bosses before Sapphiron and with the items that drop from this raid. Some of this gear can be crafted with leatherworking, tailoring, and blacksmithing. You will need to be revered or exalted with the Argent Crusade and revered with Hydraxian Waterlords to get the recipes. In addition to normal crafting materials, you will need items that drop from Naxxramas bosses.

Unlike the preparation for Princess Huhuran that required players to visit different dungeons and raids for nature resistance gear, almost everything that you need for frost resistance gear, including some actual frost resistance armours, drop from Naxxramas. You can check a class guide that will tell you what frost resistance pieces of equipment are best in the slot for your character. Also, don’t forget about consumables.
