The Gargantuan Yeti is a Yeti and a minor boss monster encountered in the Tsongmo Ice Caverns in the Orient (Act III). He's part of the side quest A Gargantuan Yeti given in Shangshung Village and defeating him also completes this quest, netting you an additional 20 000 experience points.
His lair won't be sealed for the duration of the battle and it even offers some space to run around, making hit and run strategies and even escapes possible.
Just like normal Yetis, he can drop the Yeti Fur monster charm with increased chance.
- Cold : 50%
The default attack is a smack from one of his arms.
- Freezing Breath: Freezes for a short duration and deals some Frostburn Damage.
- Ice Blast: Throws some Ice Shards in all direction dealing a lot of Pierce and Cold Damage.
Ice Blast is really dangerous and might one shot ranged characters, you should really try to dodge the ice shards.
Freeze Resistance will reduce the duration of the Freezing Breath effect and is required by melee fighters to avoid a deadly combo of Freezing Breath + Ice Blast + Basic Attacks. If you have enough Pierce Resistance and Cold Resistance you may tank him easily.
The Gargantuan Yeti is a moderately strong but fast melee attacker, however, he moves very slow. Ranged fighters, casters and pet masters can easily outrun him and avoid his cold attacks.
