All Frost Gleeok Locations in TotK
There are three Frost Gleeok’s in The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom and all are located in the Surface of Hyrule.
Specifically, two of them can be found in Hebra Mountains and one in Gerudo Summit.
One of them is guarding Zelda’s Golden Horse, one of the Special Horses in Zelda TotK.
How to Beat Frost Gleeok in TotK
Frost Gleeok are especially dangerous as they shoot ice at you. If you get hit by that ice, you will be frozen in place. Due to that, it’s essential to keep track of its projectiles and dodge in time.
The first thing you’ll need is a strong bow. Anything around level 25-30 will do as your goal is to kill each head with two shots.
The Gleeok has three heads in total and hitting each of them will stun it temporarily.
Additionally, you’ll want to use a fire-based melee weapon or infuse your weapon with the Gleeok Flame Horn, which is obtained after defeating Fire Gleeok.
Throughout the whole fight, you want to make sure you are nearby some rocks to use as hard cover. They are a great tool for blocking the Gleeok’s attacks and you should always use them.
When the Frost Gleeok reaches low HP, it will fly high into the air and throw stalactites all around the floor. Avoid the dropping stalactites until you find one you can climb on top of it.
Then, while on top of the stalactite, use Recall to launch yourself into the air. Glide towards the Frost Gleeok and use your bow to shoot all three of its heads one last time.
The fall damage will finish it off, or you may need to hit it a few more times with your melee weapon.
Frost Gleeok Drop Rewards
When defeated, the Frost Gleeok will drop the following items in Zelda TotK:
- Gleeok Frost Horn
- Gleeok Wing
- Gleeok Guts
Of course, the most valuable item is the Gleeok Forst Horn, as it can only be gained by defeating Frost Gleeok.
To summarize, these are all the Frost Gleeok locations in The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom.
After finding one, use your bow to hit its three heads, then your melee weapon to deal as much damage as possible before it recovers. Repeat until it’s defeated and always dodge any attack by being behind hard cover.
