Antzinga the Ice Elemental[]

Defend Antzinga
  • +1 Forgiving
  • 5940 XP for killing the snowmen
  • He tells you how to disable the forcefield that bars the way into Boreas' treasure room.
  • He tells you to use a medallion (found in The Chest by the Well) in the middle of Boreas' treasure room which gets you the Winter Ring.
Help The Snowmen
  • +1 Vindictive
  • 2830 XP for killing Antzinga
  • Better Loot


  • While you may be morally inclined to side with the prisoners, killing them offers much better loot. [citation needed]
  • You still can get through the forcefield without Antzinga's help. Just explore Kings's room walking near walls with character with high Perception, if Wolgraff in party he can do it. In process you will find out that one of statues in the wall is interactable. Its recommended to interract with it after you freed elementals at Elemental Forge.
  • Tossing a teleporter pyramid through the forcefields is old method and may not work in latest version.
