Raid Shadow Legends: How to play Ice Golem

The Ice Golem is one of the longer dungeons in Raid: Shadow Legends. This is due to the enemies the Ice Golem re-spawns after he unleashes his powerful area-of-effect attack.

The Ice Golem’s boss, Klyssus, can be very challenging to defeat, as you need steady damage and survivability to be successful.

There are a few strategies you can follow to defeat the boss. Players can bring in Block Revive champions to prevent Klyssus’ minions from reviving.

However, these champions must be built to deal high amounts of damage to successfully defeat them in one hit, in order to enable Block Revive to take place.

You can also use a Poison debuff to decrease Klyssus’ health points whenever it’s his turn. The boss’ passive skill will not activate if the damage is done by Poison or Health Point Burn that causes his health to drop below a certain percentage.

As a result, your team avoids the extra damage from Klyssus’ passive skill. The third strategy is having champions that can sustain you long in the battle with massive AoE healing, Revive, Remove Debuff and Ally Protection while Crowd Controlling his minions.

If you want to complete Ice Golem’s Peak under 3 minutes, you have to ensure that you have at last one champion who can inflict Decrease Defense on the enemies.

You also need a Support Champion who can buff allies with Increase Attack or Increase Defense. Moreover, you need a Speed Increase buff to ensure your champions take multiple turns before the enemies’ turn.
