The Ancient Frost Atronach is a unique frost atronach in The Elder Scrolls V: Dawnguard.


This unique creature is summoned by Arch-Curate Vyrthur during the quest "Touching the Sky."



As is the case for all Frost Atronachs, the Ancient Frost Atronach is extremely resistant to frost. On some occasions, it completely resists weaker frost spells. It deals extremely high melee damage, but is vulnerable to fire and is as slow as a troll, and can thus be easily defeated with a bow.

  •  PC   The last fifth version of this creature is erroneously replaced with the second to last fourth version in game files. So the Dragonborn may be attacked only by level 60 Ancient Frost Atronach.
