GW2. A guide to the Shiverpeaks Pass Strike Mission from The Icebrood Saga.
The Shiverpeaks Pass is a strike mission which is a 10 player boss encounter from the Bound by Blood episode.
Getting There and LFG
Access the Shiverpeaks Pass Strike Mission from the Eye of the North portal or the Training Grounds in Grothmar Valley.
If you don’t have a static group to run this, you might want to find a group using the LFG tool. Usually the most common squad composition will ask for 2-3 healers, quickness and alacrity and the rest DPS. Most people will use builds for raids so I suggest you check here for that.
Once inside the instance, you need to traverse the Shiverpeaks Pass north to reach the Beacon (Shrine) by completing a mini jumping puzzle. Once the Beacon has been lit, other party members can teleport to the beacon right before the boss. (Double click the icon in the map)
The mechanics are quite simple for this encounter, and success is nearly guaranteed with a full party. Stay near the boss and dodge or jump the shockwaves that come out from the pound attack. Otherwise avoid the circles on the ground and the orbs floating around.
