Lord Ahune's loot table

Alex Ziebart

Like Halloween's Headless Horseman, the Midsummer Fire Festival's summonable boss Lord Ahune offers a nice selection of epic loot, as well as some really fun vanity/joke loot to keep the mood light. Most of the epic drops from the Frost Lord are duplicates of old Badge of Justice loot to help save you a fair amount of badges, but there are also a few new, completely unique drops.

From completely awesome scythes to the Frost Lord's personal booze, we have a full listing of Lord Ahune's known drops. Even if you're geared to the teeth from Sunwell Plateau, Ahune has something for you, though it might come in a form a little sillier than traditional equipment. Take a look behind the cut below to see it all!

Normal Mode

Heroic Mode
  • Frostscythe of Lord Ahune - With the large amount of Badge and PvP gear in players hands, it's likely that this staff is not much of an upgrade for most casters. That doesn't mean it's a bad weapon, however. Plus it looks absolutely incredible, and that's really the important part. This weapon also has a hidden Use effect: Right click on it when you have it equipped, and you'll start to feel a little chilly. Survey says this drops on both Normal and Heroic modes, but it may only be a Heroic drop.
  • Formula: Enchant Weapon - Deathfrost - The Burning Crusade's answer to Fiery Weapon, this enchant is a very common drop. While shockingly cheap, it has questionable PvE viability. While the debuff does apply to raid bosses, it doesn't stack with Thunderclap or Curse of Tongues. Its PvP viability may be higher than in PvE, but if raiding is your game, then check out Elitist Jerks for the usual theorycrafting.
  • Scorched Stone - Though more rare than the Formula above, it is still more common than the Horseman's Squashling, thankfully. Using this stone summons a vanity pet: A miniature fire elemental. Not only is he adorable, but he also occassionally sets nearby critters aflame.
  • Huge Snowballs - They don't always drop, but when they do, it seems to always be two at a time. Roughly the size of a Pyroblast, these snowballs are impressive to watch arc through the air.
  • Snowballs - The boring, mundane version of Huge Snowballs.
  • Lord of Frost's Private Label - Not yet active on Wowhead, Lord Ahune will sometimes spawn a six-pack of... well, his private stock of booze. Crack open a cold one, and get crunked! Yes, I did just say 'crunked'.
  • Pocket Full of Snow - You shouldn't be in melee range of Lord Ahune unless his core is vulnerable, because his attacks hurt a lot and you can't do much to him. If you do enter melee with him, you'll sometimes be hit with a pretty big Frost-based knockback. When you're hit with this, you get a Pocket Full of Snow in your inventory. Opening it up gives you 3-5 Snowballs. That's a lot of snow to somehow fit in your pants!
Edit: Silly me, I didn't look at the Icebound Cloak well enough! Updated to reflect that it is not identical to the Farstrider Defender's Cloak.
