|Its an Ice Demon.|
The Ice Demon is one of the bosses encountered in the Chambers of Xeric.
The demon is initially standing in place protected by an ice storm, blocking the way deeper into the chambers. In order to dispel the ice storm, the braziers surrounding it must be lit, and kindling fuels them. There are plenty of trees outside the chamber it resides in to chop for tinder. Having a deposit chest built will greatly help for managing inventory space. Alternatively, players may drop some of their items and pick them up later, although it is recommended to only drop expendable items in the event the raid instance is closed (through a disconnection, for example).
Kindling is obtained through chopping trees in the corridor preceding ice demon. The amount of kindling received per swing is determined by the player's Woodcutting level, with every 12 levels granting the ability to receive another kindling: at level 1 Woodcutting, only one kindling can be received per swing, and at level 96 Woodcutting or higher, one to eight kindling can be received per swing. The experience gained from chopping scales to the amount of kindling chopped.
There are four braziers surrounding the demon. An icefiend occupies each brazier (one icefiend for each player in the team, capping at four icefiends). They do not move, but they will extinguish any lit fires near them. The more wood is burning, the faster the ice storm is dispelled.
Once the ice storm is dispelled, the icefiends will disappear and it will start attacking players. It has two attacks; a snow boulder and Ice Burst. The demon will take overhead prayers into account when fighting them; if the target is using Protect from Missiles, it will only use the snow boulder attack. If Protect from Magic is used instead, it will only use Ice Burst. Both attacks are AoE with a 3×3 radius, so one can avoid attacks completely by moving a few spaces away from their spot.
The demon has low health compared to other monster puzzles, but compensates for this with high Defence and a damage reduction effect.
Though the demon has damage reduction effects for all attack styles reducing damage to 33% with the exception of Fire spells, it takes 50% more damage when attacked with fire spells or the Flames of Zamorak spell and is fairly accurate due to its magic defence being calculated from its defence level rather than magic, unlike most monsters. It is recommended to use dragon warhammer or Bandos godsword special attacks to lower the demon's defences, unless using them in the following room is more advantageous (for example, against Tekton). The twisted bow hits well against the ice demon due to its high Magic level, but fire spells are still superior if the player can afford to bring it.
The Ice Demon is located inside the Chambers of Xeric.
