Anything You Can Do


Common-icon-small "I Am Unstoppable!"


"[Difficulty: Master] [Solo Quest] Are you ready to tackle a worthy quest, <name>? In the highest icy reaches live the glacial griffons. They are deadly and prey mostly on wolves, bears, and other large game. I have spread wolf carcasses around the village to attract one of these beasts. Your task is simple: single-handedly slay a glacial griffon. Only then will your deeds be worthy of song; only then will your fame rise to the level of a true Norn."

Reward Dialogue

"What a welcome sight! I didn't expect you to return, <name>. At least, not in one piece. Slaying the glacial griffon is a deed worthy of many songs, starting with this one.
Hail! Hail! Witness the skill!
Body parts strewn, flesh from the kill
<name>, you are second to none
May your legend ring true from dusk 'til sun
Catchy, eh? Well... it's a work in progress."

  • The Griffon starts out as an ally for the first few seconds. Consider using this time to cast Live Vicariously, Life Attunement or Essence Bond on it, to make the fight easier.
  • The Griffon has a health regeneration rate of 3 pips (6 health per second).
  • Because Ritual Lord causes the Griffon to sacrifice 2% of his health per cast, and it has no healing skills, it will kill itself after a time provided you can counteract the health regeneration.


  • The quest name is a reference to the song "Cold As Ice" by Foreigner, keeping with the musical theme of this quest chain.
