After a few failed attempts at the new Frost Escalation Hard mode, I finally did it. Here are some tips on how I was able to beat it with a random group.

  1. Play the Normal Frost Escalation until you are about level 14. Don’t even try the hard mode since frostbite will take you down pretty fast.
  2. Grab the Insulated Gear Passive upgrade in the Frost Escalation tree. By level 14 you should have 30% slower frostbite generation.
  3. Get Bottled Warmth. Braziers continue to prevent Frostbite buildup for 8 seconds after leaving their radius. It makes a huge difference.
  4. Heated Blade. You absorb the flame from each Brazier causing your next attack to deal 50% more damage. It stacks up with all the braziers you absorb.
  5. Have your weapon at level 19–20. I did it with a war pike at level 19.

The random team I finished it with was not that good, they kept dying. I won’t say I carried the team but at a lower level we would have wiped out. Getting paired up with a better team will make it easier.

We did get a few tougher enemies than on the normal escalation like a Shrowd, so have that in mind.

Let me know if these tips help you out or if you have better ones.
